Have u ever seen me start any Cam Newton treads showing my "love?" I've been a member of this site sin 2011 and never have.

My team is the Gaints but as I my Sig states, Football is a sport and I LOVE sports. I root for all football teams when I'm not rooting for my own. I don't LOVE Cam I LOVE Eli Manning. I have trememdous respect for Cam because I see a kid who simply ignores the artificially created hate surrounding him and simply be himself, which is obvious a problem with some.

When someone tries to make the argument that Cam is immature, i'm looking for something that sets him apart where I can say, yes that is something he really needs to work on in his character or it can be a detriment to his team. I really need to read some concrete evidence of such immaturity that shows him as that. What u're saying about Cam is still clearly coming from a subject place, even if it's an objective observation. Rationalizing it with saying you sit and analyze "Cam's demeanor" during a game, doesn't make it less subjective.

I sit and watch my QB also. Come to think of it, Eli is not much different than Cam. He sits on the side line and looks all zoned out when the team isn't playing well. He gets quite pissy when his team loses and quite happy when they win. My QB must be just as immature as Cam then. Come to think of it Cam's demeanor is a reflection of may 50% of the QBs in the NFL. Considering none of the side-line "imaturity" has stopped Eli from winning 2 SB rings in 8 years of his QB career, I seriously doubt that's an issue with anyone. Especially since he's still like that even to this day.

As a fan of the sport, I guess my pet peeve is how much you folks sweat the small stuff about your QB to the point where you make it easy for those who hate Cam to pounce on everything he does and spin them into "character issues," when they are clearly are not. Case in point: this NFLN guy pondering on why Cam went back to school and how much of it is a "distraction" and what he should be doing instead. If it catches on, don't be surprised if it then gets added to the whole "reason to concern yourself" list and another sign of his "character issues." See how much you're making these folks job easy.

Made it's time for you to stop feeding the trolls in the media also. And stop sweating the small stuff about your QB. U're only making guys like that NFLN Idiot relevant. Maybe it's time to take some of your own advise and catch some "Eli Syndrome."


Look dude, I completely agree that the media blows up issues with Cam (I said as much in my posts, I don't know how the hell you've overlooked it TWICE now, but whatever). I also agree that it was ridiculous how heavily scrutinized he was coming into the draft. Not once have I ever bought into what the media says about him, because frankly, it's a bunch of BS. Just like it's BS about this clown thinking school is a distraction for Cam, so yeah, I agree with you on all those issues.

I don't know where in my post you got the idea I "sweat the small stuff" about Cam or I'm "feeding the trolls in the media". I made a genuine observation about Cam that he could learn to not let some of those bad plays get to him as much as it seems they currently do. It has nothing to do with the damn media, I don't even give those idiots the time of day so please quit assuming as much, m'kay? That's not me talking bad about Cam (he's a 23-year old 2nd year QB who is used to putting the team on his shoulders, of course he has room to grow in this area), a hell of a lot of other QB's would benefit from doing the same thing. I don't think Cam has character issues and I don't know why in the hell you keep putting those words in quotation marks like I said that he did or something. I think he's just a young guy out there having fun and I commend him for it. I like his attitude about losing and I'd rather him be himself than some cardboard cutout of what people think he should be.

My main reason for quoting you in the first place is for doing the same exact thing you're doing now. You jump to conclusions after scanning through people's posts when it's related to Cam and spout the same carbon-copy crap every time. And a lot of the times you make some condescending remarks generalizing the entire fan base... sorry if I came off as harsh, but it's just gotten a bit old to say the least.

I look forward to all the prospective used car purchases you compare this year's top players to

Tyrann Mathieu = 1989 Buick LeSabre


I do not snipe and troll others because I find people who do to be rather sad and insignificant. I imagine it is the only way a puss can feel manly. Tacky people do, however. Perhaps you can explain why. I am guessing you were bullied and the internet is your chance for redemption.

He deserves it and furthermore the college experience is a part of anyone's maturity process except John Belushi in animal house..Quit listening to talking heads

Oh yeah, i guess he's not living up to the silly media stereotypes created against certain players off the field, so we might as well find something to ciriticize him about on the field. must keep that negative stigma live and well.

While Cam is out there teaching kids to give back, going back to school and earning his degree, leading by example, folks like u much rather sit and act all righteously over media created poo about his demeanor on the side-lines and spinning it into some kind of maturity flaw. SERIOUSLY DUDE.. I would love to sit and analyze your behavior in the stands while u watch your team lose and win and see how mature or immature u behave.

And to be honest, I wouldn't want anyone to sit and analyze my sideline behavior because I am worst than Cam. I will way more pissed and not be afraid to show it, if my team loses. I guess that's the competitive kid in me.

Me: Cam has to mature in some areas. He is not there yet. I do not need the media to tell me this, I see areas where he is immature and perhaps spoiled.

You: Cam is such a leader, he went back to school to set an example for children. (even though he said it was to honor a promise to his mother). Cam leads by example. (They want him to be a vocal leader, and they are right). Only people who get mad when they lose are competitive, so Cam is not being immature, he is being competitive.

I like Cam and want him to be his best. You want to make excuses for the things that are keeping him from being the best. I do not feel obliged to agree with you in any way because I think for myself and your argument is illogical and contradicts itself because you blame the media for labeling Cam when your opinion of him was formed in the media. You see 1 side only. I am guessing that you are not looking at this objectively. The fact that you seem angry proves that you are emotional about this. Learn that others will not always agree with you and the fact that they do not agree with you does not make them wrong. Finally, anyone who addresses an opponent in a disagreement with the term "Dude" is probably incapable of analyzing maturity on any level.

Here is a quiz for you to take. Please be objective. True or False.
1. Cam Newton went back to school to set an example for children.
2. People who think Cam needs to mature do not think for themselves; they rely on the media for theiir opinions.
3. My opinion of Cam was not formed through the media because I know him personally.
4. People who argue by calling their opponent "Dude" understand what maturity is all about.
5. Getting mad and pouting during a loss is a sign of a true competitor.

It is OK to hope this gifted athlete matures into a team leader and learns to internalize his emotions because teammates will look to him for composure and class. If the leader falls apart when the chips are down, the troops will follow suit. The point I made was lost by you--He has a chance to be the greatest QB of his generation--He is that good. He has charisma and leadership ability. However, he is not there yet in my opinion. I was 23, not mature, and I did not have 52 men and a whole nation watching me. Cam wants greatness and we want him to be great. However, he needs to mature in some areas, Shocking? No. Most players do. But the QB is held to a different standard.

Razor, how do you block someone? Good idea.

I'm seriously thinking about it... every one of the dude's posts is damn near the exact same. He stated he's never started a Cam thread, yet I don't think I've ever seen him make a non-Cam related post where he doesn't go off on some diatribe that basically boils down to us being hicks down here and not appreciative of Cam because we're too busy buying into the media.

Sound about right?

A real Panthers fan doesn't give a fug about that media crap, we all know it's bullshit. You'd think he'd have figured that out by now as long as he's been posting here.
