Couldn't agree more...i have never understood the hatred, other than attributing it to jealousy for his  abundant talent.  I mean the guy is always laughing and smiling and was genuinely a good guy at Auburn.  He goes out of his way to do stuff for community and kids and it's not just a PR thing and it's not new for him.  Sure, he gets upset with himself and overreacts when he fails sometimes, but he is still young and a winner and is learning to deal with failing.  I just don't understand the hatred.  He is not perfect but damn, he is a pretty good guy, genuine and phenomenal talent to watch.  Unless he ever does something that shows he has bad character or a crook like over half of the NFL, I think we are pretty dang lucky to have him on our side.  So far;

-he gets really upset when he loses or fails,

-he's not the greatest post game speaker on the podium

-he said he likes the Falcons...

 

and on the other hand lets see...;

People grow up loving a team. You can't just get rid of that. I know if I moved to a new city or whatever I could never stop loving the Panthers. It's okay for him to be a fan of the Falcons. He is also a fan of the Panthers because that is who he plays for and he gives everything he's got to beat the hell out of the Falcons and that is all that matters to me. Don't beat a guy up for being honest. He is loyal to the Panthers and has done a lot for this franchise and loves it. That's all that matters.

How Warren Sapp still has a job is beyond me. I can't stand that fat boy.

 

He was a judge on BBQ Pitmasters and you couldn't understand a thing he was saying because he kept stuffing his mouth and trying to talk at the same time

We all knew the media was going to go ape sh*t over this... Its the offseason and they need to spin anything controversial they can to get ratings and such. Look at the zimmerman trial [dont get political], how many shootings happen in america every fuggin hour, yet they pick this one because its a [not-so] white vs black thing and they know dumb idiots will get sucked into it.

 

 

same thing in the sports world, anything that has people gossiping and discussing/arguing = ratings= $$$$$$$$$$$$$

First we had Colin Kaepernick wearing a Dolphins hat. Then we had Cam Newton admitting he still likes the Falcons, when he’s not playing against them.

 

Now the Cardinals’ website has reminded us that receiver Larry Fitzgerald still thinks of himself as a Vikings fan.

 

I grew up a Vikings fan and I would be lying to you if I didn’t say I was still a Vikings fan,” Fitzgerald said. “Growing up in Minnesota it’s second nature. I still pull for them when I’m not playing them.

 

 

 

Uh oh... now big fat Warren gonna call out Fitzgerald now, right?

 

Right?

He gives daily head to over 120 NFLNET executives a day....................a DAY!

 

I read it on the interwebs, you know it's the truth.

 

That and he is a smelly, worthless POS that only spouts the opinion his handlers give him.

These are exactly the reasons people cannot be honest these days. I hope Cam learns from this.

Cam didn't say anything wrong. He gave an honest answer. I don't remember Bradshaw and Rodgers getting grilled for announcing their allegiances.

Of course he did not say anything wrong. However, it was not a real smart thing to say. He should have known that the media and even many fans would have an issue with him saying he was a fan of a div rival. He has to learn when not to say these things....even if he is a fan of his childhood team.

He needs to learn to identify the times where saying nothing is the best course if action.
