Said it before.  I don't really think they hate him.  Most sports guys don't have deep personal feelings about guys they cover unless they know them personally.

 

Generally speaking, they just have a negative perception of him that most are too lazy to bother verifying because he doesn't play for an 'important' team.

 

Until the Panthers become more relevant, there's no compelling reason for the national guys to wonder if they're being fair or not, other than journalistic integrity.

 

(and if you think that exists in modern sports media, I've got bad news for you...) :(

 

Bottom Line: They just don't know any better.  Should they?  Absolutely, but good luck on that given that nobody much cares but Panther fans.

 

 

hate is a strong word. but Cam destroyed a lot of their credibility his first year. And i think you are giving their "naivete" way to much credit. these are supposed professionals.

 

i don't care about the recognition but i will call bullshit when i see it.

I'm truly surprised we haven't seen ESPN and NFL Network jump on this story. I figured they would be on this like an oversized bottle on Jacoby Jones' head.

I'm not usually one to beat the media witch-hunt drum, but holy poo, this is pathetic...

Who gives a poo that this is all of a sudden news. If someone would have noticed this 2 years ago, it would have bee corrected then. Instead of now, like it has.

I have seen you guys harp on things for years. Cam got away with this for years. Pretty much makes it even.

Got to admit. As much flack as Cam gets, it is amazing that this took so long to be discovered. Evidently, people don't pay enough attention to what Cam actually does. Hard to see how this went unnoticed for so long?

Nitpickers are getting slack nowadays.

 

That's because/Don't you know: Most people that criticize Cam, don't actually watch him play! :phew:

 

I don't care about the story myself, really.  But you guys did bring up some good points/contradictions.

The funny part is in so many words the NFL said it was ok because nothing has become of it. Prob truth be told half the players in the league wear a logo on there clip.

it's obviously not getting "corrected" because you could see those clips in the game last night.

 

if cam gets slammed with a hefty fine it is complete and total bullshit.

To steal from a Zod tweet, RGIII, Calvin Johnson, and Marshawn Lynch are all as guilty as Cam, but receive no mention:

I keep telling u folks the endless attack on Can has more than to do with revenge and exercising one's power.I bet u this story eas started by soneone close to ESPN or one of Cam's college rivals who r still butt hurt over Cam not being punished over a fake story.

Then you're not looking hard enough.  The UA logo is obvious on Lynch's.  The other two aren't UA logos.  I don't recognize them, but they're obviously logos of some sort and it ain't Nike.
