You missed my point. It's about what is being percieved. After all we are talking about the media are we not? Do they talk about what is or isn't or what is percieved to be? Cam should have at least congratulated and so should RG3. Did smitty not call him out? I think Smitty would like to see that kind of attitude as well.
That is a standard I'd like to see in any QB. Say what you want but the fact remains this fanbase can't get over their homerism. It's there if you want to see it, if not I understand that too, you're a fan of the team and it's hard to admit contributing issues. What is tiring is how you guys think Cam is so perfect, when he clearly has issue controlling emotions among others. What is tiring is the fans who contantley think everyone is out to get Cam.
Is it not obvious these poeple put a lot of weight in media? You think poeple who put that much emotion and weight in media really have an objective opinon? Think about it. But again, people choose to see what they want to see and what they want to see will validate what they believe. If you step outside this box and just try to just observe you might be able to form an opinion based on observation rather than emotion.
Sorry this is BS. The media lies or is wrong about a lot of things; whether they do it willingly or blithe-fully ignorantly or not. You can't hold Cam to an unfair standard, then tell him how he needs to act when he doesn't meet that unfair standard
People just don't bring up RG3 doing the same thing with the touch down fumble; or Kaepernick spiking the ball after a TD and drawing a penalty; or Brady kicking a defender that wasn't even on him, etc., cause their hopeless homers. They bring it up cause it's a gross double standard, regarding criticism of Cam and the lack of criticism by others when they do similar or the same things. Cam should be judged fairly like anyone else. And he will, when its' by people who don't have a paternal or negative predisposition of him. The ones who do, come off like blowhards.
When Cam yelled at that ref in the Oakland game, some people made a mountain out of it. Considering how beat up Cam was getting, he had a right to be upset. The bump was accidental, and Boger (the Ref) knew it. What makes it so ironic? I can't ever recall Cam yelling at a referee before. Ever! And he even apologized, during the game and at his presser. But some Panther fans were demanding an apology--immediately after the game as if Cam was some kinda repeat Referee offender/Ax murderer. The media will always pick on certain things Cam does and says (until they or the public get tired of it), cause they know Cam draws interest and eyeballs. Simple as that! They don't care.
Yes, Cam should be called out regarding anything blatantly wrong or out of the ordinary he does. However, anything that he does that's expected for his tenure or experience, he should be spoken to and expected to get better, but not castigated for it, like it's something rare or he's some kinda leper That's what people have a problem with.
Sometimes Panther fans act like Cam is their recalcitrant bad child who always gets in trouble, that needs to be constantly monitored and punished, when he's honestly been a model citizen since he's came in the NFL (actually since Blinn Junior College). The rest of it, is just Media BS, cause everyone has their own personality, and not everyone's the same.
