Fear + Paranoia + low self worth + never having won anything + almost 0 experience dealing with "stars" + "Appalachian mentality" = Charlotte media, radio, and "fans" coping and reacting to a Cam Newton



Yeah, such sports headlines as "fined for Abusive Conduct" will really leave some wondering what sort of character is Cam. The psychology of our media. You start reading the article that the headline is part of and you will read an article that is so void of much truth but who cares. It's just Cam.

U can look at Cam and know there are those who secretly despise him based solely on their oversized egos and very low self-esteem. Amazing how they brag and go out of their way to make players like The Golden Calf of Bristol into the image of Cam. Yet, they will Cam placed into the typical box reserved for images like his that is quite menacing to them.

Malcolm X knew what he was talking about when he said, "The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses." So true

So...honest question: have you not noticed that he takes more shots in the media than any other QB, including the other "bad boy" QB, Jay Cutler?

Why is that? Is Cam's behavior so horrible that he must be constantly demonized? Are there no other QB's in the league that act like divas occasionally? Has Cam beat up his girlfriend? Got caught with weed? Is he surrounded by a posse of questionable characters? Does he flaunt his wealth? Does he ever blame his teammates for losses?

Please tell us in your opinion why it is that he gets a greater volume of criticism than damn near anyone else?


Cams behavior is fine.Who would not like to take their son or daughter to see Cam play and have a chance of getting a ball from him? The reason he gets greater attention is his swag and confidence.The guy is a good looking Heisman winner that has a way of energizing his fan base.When you have all that you get the good and bad attention..like or not.

Not comparing the two but look at The Golden Calf of Bristol. Some love him and some hate him but he has that effect on people.

the only reason why people believe newton is being criticized more than anyone else is because newton is the only player that a lot of panther fans really pay attention to.

step out of the panther box for a week or so and follow all the news around the nfl.

cam newton is not the center of negative attention.

True and false.

Yes, other players face heat. Newton is unique. Name another player in the last decade that entered the NFL with the national attention Newton was recieving. Newton is under a different microscope than most 2nd year players and was last year.

Who is saying what? As far as I can tell the national media is the one hating on Cam a lot. The Charlotte Observer published the hello kitty image, other than that, who is saying anything?


Same question. I feel like Charlotte and our media generally love the guy. What are some examples of things local radio has accused Cam of?

At the risk of being too vague do you listen to WFNZ between 3 and 7?

I started listening to 730 because I got tired of listening to Marc and Zarzour spend entire segments of their show talking about every negative thing they could come up with about Cam. Maybe they changed their tune by now...I dunno because I haven't turned their show on in months...but for a while there it was bordering on obsessive.

You are making a mockery of this.I do not care if Cam does his superman pose....what I said is why is it so surprising the media takes shots at him ?


This may be a surprise to you, but what I said had nothing to do with you or your personal opinions. More of a statement on the double standard the media has for Cam. When have you ever heard any other qb slammed for celebrating, and than equally slammed for not celebrating.

Does he feel pressed not to talk about him since he indirectly works for him?


How do you indirectly work for someone?

For whatever reason I usually end up listening to Mac attack or Busting loose. I think Frank Garcia in particular is pretty good.

I listen to the 3-7 show maybe once a month.
