If he's fined even though the Ref corrected himself later by saying that Newton didn't bump him, that would be a travesty.

I think they should just fine him and be done with it. There shouldn't be much of a grey area with touching refs.

The ref even said it was not malicious, and that the penalty was for screaming at him. If they're going to fine him, it should be "for disrespect" or it should be very minor, because it was clearly an accident that he bumped into him.

This guy thinks he could be suspended. I don't see it

http://charlotte.cbslocal.com/2012/12/25/cam-newtons-ref-bump-could-be-first-test-of-roger-goodells-post-bounty-gate-power/

[quote]It has been said that Roger Goodell has lost some of his power after the reversal of the so-called Bounty Gate penalties and Newton’s actions could prove the first real test of the commissioner’s power to levy fines and/or suspensions. Individually the kick and bump would simply draw fines, but because they were done by the same person in the same game Goodell may want to reprise his law and order reputation and tell the young quarterback to sit out the first game of his professional career.[/quote]

Newton's fine, if there is one, will be miniscule next to Hardy's.

the ref said the bump wasn't malicious, not that he didn't bump into him.

bottom line, you are not to touch intentionally touch the referees...or do too much trash talking.

either way, he'll be fined because he broke the rules. the nfl has never let anything slide when it comes to an infraction against a referee.

He also said he misspoke and did not mean to call the penalty for Bumping an Official but for the words Cam said to him.

The guy is a moron, that much has been established. However if you can't touch an official, then this same guy once gave Vince Young a high-five and in that same game had Steve Smith draped around his shoulders.

You either can or you can't, now there are stories saying Cam did and didn't. Just a bunch of hogwash to me.

Yep I agree maybe a token fine to let the players know it will not be tolerated. I hope Cam will learn from this.

Cam does deserve to get fined. This was not good for his image.

Yep and niether was his kicking tantrum. People can defend him here all they want, but Cam gives reasons for poeple to pick him apart. He is immature, I'm sure he'll get over it but the fact remains he needs to quit that poo.

I think a fine is appropriate.

Agree 100%. I love the guy but he has to stop acting out like this. I was at a bar watching this game and the fans there were killing him. It's tough to defend the guy when he acts like this.

This.

The NFL has been very consistent with this. You touch a ref and you get a fine.

Let's do a bake sale and pay the fine for #1.

Isn't that what u folks wanted.. I get the impression wouldn't leave Cam alone until. U get him thrown out the NFL

I could have sworn the Refs themselves say the bump was not intentional but it's fugging Cam.

I'm sure if it was Smitty those same fans would be high fiving each other. Clearly any poo Cam does gets him automatic scorn because he's fugging marked kid.

Why is it so hard for Cam Newton fans to understand the quarterback and face of the franchise is held to different standards? Smitty is a receiver. They're all given this pass because a lot of them are expected to be divas or show offs, etc

Show me one other quarterback in the NFL who is a bigger showoff and has accomplished less than Cam Newton that people actually like or give any respect?

Not to mention Smith is an accomplished veteran receiver. He's earned his respect. He's played in a Superbowl. He's earned the receiver Triple Crown. He's been constantly in conversations with other elite receivers. And most of all, he's real. He's genuine. He walks the walk, then talks the talk. He's always backed up his mouth with his play on the field. He worked his way up in the league, beginning as a kick returner. He did it the right way.

Cam is an entitled brat and his fans think he's entitled to the same treatment as guys like Smith.

The refs said it was not [i]malicious[/i]. Sure looked intentional to me.

Many other players would have been ejected immediately.

Meh it's likely a fine. The NFL hands out multiple fines each week.

But touching a ref is automatic fine whether he meant to or not.

Of course it was malicious and Tommy Kelly did Newton a favor. He didn't have to come out and say they were purposely targetting Cam and trying to take him out of the game.

Who says this? What defender ever comes clean on his own on this? He's taking up for Cammy Cam because he knew how bad it could turn out and Newton fans think he never gets any breaks.

Cam's not genuine or real?
