Please provide the quote in which I clearly stated "Cam Newton must leave Carolina only because of fans".
We can dance around about this all day. What's good for you isn't necessarily what's good for everyone else. Same can be said about me. We aren't Cam Newton. He has to live his own life and make his own decisions.
I am not going to kid myself that whether it be a quarterback or a regular free agent, when it comes to deciding their future in the league on where to sign, it definitely often comes down to more than just money.
I provided your quotes above, and I listed a number of factors other than money.
He can absolutely make his own decisions based on whatever criteria he wants. My point, however, is that if he lets something as silly as "the fickle local fans who were against him being drafted (or) the local media who bash him if he sneezes too loudly" enter into his decision making process, I'd be disappointed and would lose respect for him.
That kind of thinking would put him in the same category as a thin-skinned flake like Vince Young. Is a man like that really what you'd hope for Newton to be like?
Me? Based on what I've seen of him so far, I'd like to believe Newton is infinitely better and smarter than that.
