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.

Damn you are a complete idiot.

No one is bashing Newton. I don't blame him one bit for his reactions to the cheap shots the Raiders were taking. I was very impressed that he kept his composure as well as he did. Most of us, myself included, would have done much worse.

We just realize that the NFL has been very consistent with touching refs. You touch them and you get a fine.

Was it malicious...no.

Was it intentional..I don't think so.

Was it dumb and warrants a fine...yes, based on the rules.

Cam knew he stepped over the line and publically apologized for the episode. But, a fine is definitely coming,

Now, if a suspension is handed down, That would be a ridiculous travesty.

Cam's not genuine or real?

Not always. I think he does his best in portraying the image Richardson wants him to, but every other week he takes a step back with something controversial. He's been a good soldier lately though and if they were really going after him, I don't blame him so much for the kick. Touching the ref was going too far though and there's no possible way you can tell me that wasn't aggressive. Even if he didn't touch him, and just came at him like that and said something he should be fined.

That wasn't the point though. The point is he can't possibly be expected to get the same treatment high profile veteran quarterbacks get when he hasn't done jack in this league. He also shouldn't be expected to get the same treatment as an elite receiver, when you are the face of the franchise. Especially when he rubs so many people off the wrong way.

I don't understand why this still needs to be explained 2 years in. Like I said, Cam Newton fans believe he should be entitled to the same treatment as guys who have earned it, without doing anything at all, which is both immature and delusional. There's a pecking order in the NFL like in any other league and he hasn't earned that respect yet. It's as simple as that. It's a fact of life.

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.

Great, lets see how you feel when he finally gets injured from players intentionally trying to hurt him.

Was it intentional..I doubt it.

I just have to say, it seem some of you are very quick to jump to conclusion when Cam does something. Then when the facts come out, instead of simply saying, yes, we over-reacted, you much rather sit and act like lawyers with your spins and rationale to defend your over-reactions. I'm sure the NFL clearly defines what touching a Ref really is. Especially since football isn't Tennis and even worst, there is tons of body contacts where Refs will be part of.

And by the way, you're name calling does nothing to me. You're a stranger on the internet. I'm sure you can make your argument against what I say without the silly name calling. Remember you're trying to make a strong case against what I posted. Name calling only lowers your attempt at having me take you serious.

You're so not telling the truth. No one is expecting Cam to get any special treatment but fair it fair. Every ish this young man does you folks try to use it as grounds to go in on him. No matter how small. No matter how obvious. No matter how wrong you are. Folks aren't stupid.

And no matter how well you make you're argument, you know darn well you're being disingenuous. It seems you folks are the ones who drag Cam into silly controversy just to feed your already judgemtal view of him.

What has Cam done? He sits with a towel on his head. You folks turn it into a controversy. He doesn't smile after team lose. You folks turn it into a controversy. He makes a statement in during a press conference. You folks spin it into a controversy. He defense himself on the field. You folks quickly attack him and turn it into a controversy. Why don't some of you folks simply admit it, You reason for always attacking Cam has very little with what you're claiming.

And by the way, how and who has Cam rubbed the wrong way in the organization?

And how come Luck, Matthew and all of the media darling QBs can get treated special, but Cam treated like a darn run away slave?

He makes a statement in during a press conference. You folks spin it into a controversy. He defense himself on the field. You folks quickly attack him and turn it into a controversy. Why don't some of you folks simply admit it, you believe every thing you read about Cam simply because the media say so.

You folks? Well then obviously what he's done is he was born black.

Look man, I don't think I need to say more than what I said. It's that. It's as simple as what I explained in that post. No other freaking rookie quarterback that came into this league, black, white or mixed is dealing with this because they're not acting like this, they're more mature, they stay out of the media, and they know their place and the kind of work it takes to achieve the status of the other quarterbacks in this league. It also doesn't help him that he had controversy coming out of college whereas these other guys did not. But whether it means respect, whether it means getting calls your way, whether it means getting a break in the press or from the refs. ...like Rivera says...it's a process. He hasn't done a good job of keeping his head low, his mouth shut, and going through it. He's been a peacock since the moment he came in, with a lot of criticism mixed in with the support of race activists.

But more importantly than all that, he's not leading this teams to wins. Do that, and a lot of those go away. Not all, but a lot of that. People shut up when you win.

He should get fined for bumping the ref, no question.

And I'd even be okay with a fine for the kick as long as the Raider who pushed him out of bounds after he released the ball also gets one. Oh, and toss in one for the guy that took 3 steps after Cam had passed the ball and then drove him into the ground. And just for good measure, add one in for the Raider who hit Cam in the stomach with the crown of his helmet.

Fair is fair.

The "touch a ref is an automatic fine" is pure BS. I see players in other games touch refs almost every week. It seems you can touch a ref as long as there is no aggression. From what I watch, they seem to let it slide unless it's disrespectful or malicious.

But the way Cam snapped in the direction of the ref, whether it was for Boger or not, it's hard not to flag/fine him. I have no problem with this. Just hope it teaches him a lesson. Suspension would be harsh though.

I don't ever recall a player or coach touching a ref and not being disciplined. Maybe you have a counterexample but I have always understood it to be an auto flag/fine.
