Panthers PR guy is tired of fictional stories about Cam

182 posts in this topic

So I've worked a lot of bar/restaurant jobs in Atlanta through an entertainment company I used to work for, and I've met a poo ton of people in the bar/club industry. I've heard a lot of stories.

I know people that saw Ray Lewis kill that guy. I know Eugene Robinson was trying to pick up a tranny the night he grabbed a UC. I know the zifty guy that delivers Matt Ryan all his meals from the restaurant on the bottom floor of his luxury condo complex. I'm basically the guy from this Steely Dan song.

Cam Newton does not drink, at least not in public. He never stays anywhere past one. He's been dating the same girl for years. He's goofy as hell and is really only comfortable on a football field. He's smart, well spoken, and tips well.

Great post/info Fiz.

Good to hear about Cam and that's kind of what I expected of him, but the media doesn't want him to be that so they paint him in a totally different light.

Sad to hear about Ray Lewis if that source is credible. I always held out hope that he didn't do that himself and just covered it up for his associates, but they were never able to find his suit from that night, so... Crazy that he's so revered, by both fans and players, when you look at it in that scope.

Lol thats BS. South Carolina has a long history of opposing players kicking our ass and we don't hate on them. Thats just football. We're not tree killing Bama fans.

It was your only SEC championship appearance in school history, so yeah it hurt more than most of your other losses.

It's just the mainstream sports media trying to spin a narrative for viewers and web clicks. They're going to push whatever agenda they think will get them more ratings, rather than the truth. It's media bias, they're not out to get Cam. They just want to frame him as a bad guy if it helps them, just like they push The Golden Calf of Bristol and jets stories.

Maybe the guy deserved to be pushing up daisies.He could have pulled a knife or gun. As for Eugene that is just too funny.

Why do people watch Cops or Jerry Springer? Or the bad auditions on American Idol, for that matter?

Well, I think Cops/Springer has that train-wreck/drama factor. People love that poo. But The Golden Calf of Bristol is a great humble guy. I think it is just hero-worship. People for some reason want their heroes to be human beings that are not in their life i.e. athletes, actors, singers, politicians etc...And the media is trying so hard to sell this hero to the public. Poor guy

WFNZ is the only station I have seen where EVERY show host, sans one (Brett Jensen and he is from fricken Gastonia) is from someplace else and a fan of another franchise.

Amazing how there are people in this thread, who are trying to downplay the level of bullshit Cam/Panther fans have endured this season alone. From the media outlets, external AND internal, from players and fans of other teams and even so-called fans on THIS VERY BOARD.

Shitty fanbase,, shitty radio and print media. Please stop with the, "well they do _ in NY and other large markets". I live in Princeton. Smack dab in-between PHI and the city (NY). We get local news from both markets, hell I get three 1'o'clock games a week some weeks. They go to war for their own, until there is no choice left, then they will call them out.

The Golden Calf of Bristol likely is a great guy, although he's a lousy quarterback.

But he's part of the Jets, a big market franchise whose organization gives train wrecks a bad name.

All about the drama.

Can you got into more detail? Like what exactly your friends said about it? It's always been my feeling that of course he did do it but would like to hear your story.

    • A hot steak straight from the grill tastes 1000 times better than any of that stuff to me. I've tried to lie to myself and tell myself it doesn't but it won't work, lol.

    • I like Funchess, but it wasn't that long ago there were huge threads in here about moving KB to TE, trading him or cutting him. I knew throwing in Steve Smith would cause people to compare KB and Smith (not my intention) and not take a real look at how well KB has actually done. I love Benjamin and after two years (one rookie and one post ACL) I think we've seen him dominate enough games to not poo on him as much as we do.

      I want Funchess to take the next step but I sure don't think of him as capable of replacing Benjamin as our top WR. If he gets to that point then god help the defenses we face.

      One note on the lab disappearances last year. He was coming of an ACL injury which normally means your first year back isn't as good. Wes Welker is a guy I remember that had the same injury and came back a bit earlier and wasn't the same after a 10 month rehab. 40 less catches and 500 less yards. KB had 13 months but you could see how well he started and I think he was going too hard too soon. He looked dominant his first two weeks against Denver and SF. After the season Proehl admitted they thought he was ready too soon and that the strength coach who said he wasn't ready was right.

      I'm expecting big things out of KB this year and I'm on his bandwagon already and I really hope the memes have him motivated with a huge chip on his shoulder. I also hope that our new weapons open things up compared to last year where defenses knew we weren't throwing it to our WR3, TE2 and RB. Cover Olsen, KB and Ginn and blitz the rest. Cam didn't stand a chance. I think we may have opened up our WR3 and RB now.

    • To each his own. I think they are supremely flavorful and delicious. Romaine, raw spinach leaves, and cabbage (shredded or in the form of slaw) are pretty much "accepted" ways to eat, but my wife and I (and sometimes my teen son) have just taken it a step further. And let's not talk about all the delicious red, yellow and green peppers. Yummy! Not saying this is you, but sometimes you just have to reprogram your mind and your taste buds. Each veggie and fruit has a flavor and aroma all its own. We destroy so much of the natural flavor and aroma during the cooking process. BTW, nutritionally, blending is superior to juicing.
