Yesterday, I stated that a lot of what's happening to Cam has to to with him being in the South. I was quickly accused of trying to stir up racism and was ridiculed. Guess what, my point had less to do with racism and more to do with what I've observed in the past two plus years.

It seems those who have Cam are forced to feel unhappy about having him because of the endless scrutinizing the negative images being created against him by the media and pushed by those who are still seething that he helped a much rival college team achieve a goal. It seems some of them set out to tarnish Cam because they see him as way to "perfect."

I see what I see, not because I'm anyone's "nuthugger" but because I'm quite observant. I see the same game that was played with Auburn students being played with you Panthers fans by outsiders and even by Panthers fans who seem to still have some ax to grind against Cam.

I really agree with this thread. I honestly wonder if it would have been better if the Bills had taken Cam instead of the Panthers. I don't believe the media's hate would have subsided but I believe folks wouldn't be so quick to entertain everything they read as much because a lot of them don't have any real dislike or prejudgement of Cam outside of the media. The whole Auburn vs. Bama stuff is mor a Southern and ESPN thing than up here in the Northeast.

In all honety, folks in the North are not so much into the Cam Newton hate as the folks are in the South and that's a fact. IMO, Cam still being part of that world where all the hate between Auburn and Bama exists. Which makes it easier to continue pushing every fictional story out there against him. Not so much because folks believe it, but because it will in some way, satisfy their egos towards him.

As you can Tell by The Golden Calf of Bristol, folks up North don't care what you did in college and how much of a star you were. They only care about what you're doing know. They are very quick to forgive and even quicker to forget. The fear-mongering and race baiting, wouldn't be still working so much in the North as it seems to be doing in the South and that's a fact.

The Golden Calf of Bristol gets more airtime than Cam, but both have their every action magnified.


The Golden Calf of Bristol is a New York Jet.

Newton is a Carolina Panther.

Who would you rightly expect to get more airtime on the national level?

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.



whaaaaaaat...cmon man really?

The Golden Calf of Bristol was more talked about in Denver than NY.

Denver is a bigger media market than New York?

For Mr. Scott...

I fully understand why NY athletes get more airtime than the locals, but that's not what I was addressing.

And the The Golden Calf of Bristol story sold well and got plenty of airtime long before he hit the big apple.

It's been a running joke on NFLN for 2 years that any mention of The Golden Calf of Bristol drives ratings higher.

The Golden Calf of Bristol turning around the fortunes of the Denver Broncos was a great story. Of course it was played up.

Jerry Springer gets ratings too.

The Golden Calf of Bristol is an awful quarterback. They know it, but they also know he gets ratings/clicks/whatever.

Because stereotypes sell......that's why it's easy to label him a thug.



I've heard a lot of negative things said about Cam but thug hasn't really been one of them.
