Doctors have sidelined Robert Griffin III, canceling his trip to Beckley to serve as the guest speaker at the annual tip-off banquet for the Big Atlantic Classic. But tournament director Jim Justice has found a backup the Redskins wish they could have had when their star rookie quarterback went down with a knee injury in the NFL playoffs.

Coming in Griffin’s place — and joining a list of past speakers like Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Terry Bradshaw, Shaquille O’Neal and The Golden Calf of Bristol, who have come to Beckley to talk with fans at the Big Atlantic Classic — will be Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

“We fell off a cliff there, but our farm manager in South Carolina came up with Cam, and we were able to get him,” Justice said Monday night. “He’s just a superstar beyond belief, so that’s really special.”

I'm not sure how I feel about this... Beckley is great and all but but he was second to Bob?

I thinks it speaks highly of Cam that he has no qualms representing the Panthers even if he's not the first choice.

I guess this is a Win Win for all parties involved.

Go Cam!

And please heal up better and play smarter--next season Robert Griffin The Third.

Well, West Virginia does tend to be either Steelers or Redskins territory. So going for RG3 *first* makes perfect sense for them.

Good on Cam for helping them out. I bet when RG3 took Cam's number after the Panthers beat dat ass this season, he never thought he'd end up using it.

"Ummmmm... yeah, Big Bro? Its me, Bob... need a favor."

So what was RG3's excuse to no show up? Probably something to do about his knee right? I'm being serious, not a shot at bob.

Some malarkey about them being afraid he'd get a blood clot on the plane trip there.

Beckley, WV...drove through there once. Hopefully, I never have to drive through there or WV again.
Good for Cam, though for helping out.

Also (and I don't know if this was a mistake by the writer of the column) it said that Bob had surgery on BOTH knees.

I had heard that he had MCL surgery and they also "cleaned up" damage on his ACL in the same knee simultaneously.

Great speaking lineup, except for The Golden Calf of Bristol.
