The media talks about him BECAUSE people care. Mostly just stupid people, but there's no shortage of those.
no, everyone knew he couldn't play QB when he left college, if you are still ripping him for it today what are you accomplishing? Nothing, it's like the stories about him being a bad teammate that he got ripped for recently, he's irrelevant as a NFL QB so why should anyone care? If the media stopped talking about him nobody would care

As for The Golden Calf of Bristol becoming a Panther, I say hell no. However, it would make for an interesting media experiment. If The Golden Calf of Bristol were to come to the small-market Panthers, irrelevant to the entire world except for the Carolinas and the small extended fanbase nationally, my thought is that the media circus surrounding him would come to a screeching halt as if he no longer played in the NFL.
He would be back page news and the media frenzy would shift its attention elsewhere. No way that they heap that much focus on Charlotte and the Panthers.
I would be willing to bet the exact opposite.
The attention wouldn't be on the Panthers so much as it would be on Cam & The Golden Calf of Bristol.
The day it was announced you would hear half of ESPN radio fapping on air because they knew what was about to happen.
First day of Camp:
"My sources are telling me that Cam is struggling in practice & The Golden Calf of Bristol has a real shot to start."
First Pre-season game:
"I can't help but notice that Cam only played 12 minutes while The Golden Calf of Bristol played 3 quarters! That tells me a changes is coming in Carolina!"
Week before opening day:
Reporter: "So Cam, a lot of people say that The Golden Calf of Bristol was a great college QB but doesn't deserve to be in the NFL. You were The Golden Calf of Bristol's backup at Florida, how does it feel to have The Golden Calf of Bristol as your back up now?"
Cam: "Of course The Golden Calf of Bristol deserves to be here. He's one of the hardest working guys I've ever seen.He's said time & time again that he'd do anything to help his team. Doesn't matter if it's on the field or on the sidelines. Give the guy a break."
Newton says "The Golden Calf of Bristol deserves to be my backup. Doesn't matter on the sidelines."
& that's just for starters.
The circus we saw in NYC would be a shadow of what would happen here.

Cam is a confident elite player, he is not a Sanchez. he can get whatever he wants, including his GM fired or the starting job for 20 other NFL teams. The day The Golden Calf of Bristol is mentioned as even a rumor to Carolina is the day we say goodbye to Cam.
