Cam is an easy target.

Better that then taking on the ugly side of the NFL: domestic violence, not paying child support, drug use, violence against women they date, or you know, the reasons behind murders and carrying guns.

Much easier piece of script to write, a coddled, self-absorbed, narrcistic athelete who thinks he is all that has done nothing in the W column to make him have such a high opinion of himself.

I lived in the DC area for many years, I assure you there were never two more self-absorbed athletes than Sonny Jurgenson and Joe Theisman. One is beloved and one is detested. Sonny thought a lot of himself but hide it better than Theisman.

I don't know who Cam Newton is, none of us do, as face of the franchise I would hope he is not the things written; but, there are far more serious crimes. I can tolerate a big ego from a winner; but, I won't tolerate rape, murder, abuse from anyone. Some people in the NFL don't have such standards and that is a shame.

...but, yeah, write the little article about last year's Pro Bowl. It matters, it really really does.

Great points as always. This also shows how the media holds poo in their back pocket for the right time to pull it out. Remember all the stories that came out about tiger after it was found out he was cheating on his wife. The media kept those stories in their back pocket for fuging years. The same poo with Mcnabb and Lebron.

When Lebron went to the heat the fuging media was pulling stories out from 5 and 6 years ago to muddy up his character. Now he wins a championship and hating on him is played out. So the media are now pulling old ass stories from those same 5 and 6 years ago talking about his great work ethic and IQ. Where were these stories over the last 2 years when the media made him out to be some lazy good for nothing villain.

ESPN played this same poo with Brandon Roy and the whole flag thing a few years ago.

Look...Jordan is a world-class a$$hole, and so is kobe...and there are a lot of athletes like that....

But I don't think Cam is like that type at all. He talks a lot of trash, but it all seems friendly to me. If players really feel that way, oh well...

The Ray Lewis stuff is a traight up lie...No one disses Ray lewis

Right the same Ray Lewis who basically called media golden boy Brady a punk ass bitch during an interview because he was crying to the media. The same Ray Lewis who called out Andy Reid for benching Mcnabb and calling the same plays over and over again.

Yeah right

I can tell you this....the Panthers had three great human beings at quarterback in Steve Beuerlein, Rodney Peete and Jake Delhomme. Collins and Newton not so much. Which is kind of sad because Collins and Newton are/were both way ahead of the other three in terms of talent. The one thing that I think separates the first three from the last two is that they were stand up guys. Cam still has time to turn it around. He came to Charlotte at a much younger age than did number 7, 9 and 17.

Great human beings? Tend toward hyperbole much?

I'm sure they are all really nice guys. None of them will be likely meeting with the Nobel committee anytime soon.

Athletes are just like everyone else. They all have their pluses and minuses. Fans need to stop putting these guys on a pedestal and they will be less disappointed when they turn out to be just human after all.

He has shown he is the player we thought he could be.....but that isn't good enough.

He doesn't deserve the time to grow into a great QB he should just be it.....even though 99% of great QBs grew into it.

Juliuis Peppers all over....but on a national stage. Overlooking what a great talent we have sitting in our laps bc he happens to by Y and yet aren't happy bc he isn't X.

Well said.

This is true. I heard Chris Carter on the radio saying how he has lots of autographed jerseys and shoes. These guys are fans of the game just like we are.

Cris Carter said he never asked for one directly it was always set up via 3rd party

FurdTurgason obviously has a problem with successful black men. I know how everyone gets touchy about the race card here but lets call a cat a cat and a dog a dog.

This man is bashing cam newton while sporting an Avi that claims President Obama is the worst president ever. That's a title George W Bush will hold forever.

First post in this thread for me... here's the thing that is funny.

Today on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd"... Cowherd is saying he hates in the NBA how players are all buddy buddy with opponents. He doesn't want to see guys hugging after games, being pals, he wants people to hate their opponents... especially when they lose....

First guy I thought of was Cam. And if this is how he is to his peers around the league I'm fine wiht it. In fact, I like it.

I can think of some Nobel prize winners who are a-holes.

Steve, Rodney and Jake were never too big for anyone, from interns to the people in community services to the fans to the guys who barely made the team. In fact they made it a point to be kind to those people.

The media guys said Beuerlein would step in the media room on his way out of the stadium every day to ask them if anybody needed anything else before he left. You couldn't find a better spokesman for the team, either. When he was released by Seifert, he had an obligation to make a community services appearance at a local school the next day. He went. He did it because he knew the kids there were looking forward to seeing him and he liked the community services people.

Jake was the same way. I wasn't there his last two years so I didn't see the ugliness, but it seemed to me from afar he handled it as best he could.

And if I could sum up Rodney Peete in two words, those words would be consummate professional. Wish the Panthers had gotten him earlier in his career because he would have been a franchise QB in Charlotte.

Like I said, Cam can still get there. But he's got to get over this "I'm a superstar and I can do what I want" mentality, a mentality that sadly many of you on here seem to think is okay.
