Origin of Peter King's hate on Cam


Best Answer Marguide, 31 December 2013 - 12:40 PM

Haven't read the article because it's old news, but the reason Cam wouldn't talk to King is because King was the guy who did the whole "entertainer and icon" thing around the draft.

 

Rather than provide any context as to why Newton made the comment, King chose to sensationalize it via Twitter, making Cam look like a diva.

 

So Cam stiffing him on an interview was entirely appropriate.

Not sure if anyone posted this before. Cam wouldn't talk to him after a practice back in 2011.

Interesting but not too surprising: Just got stiffed at Panther camp by Cam Newton. Chose not to talk to me post-evening practice.

 

Cam hadn't even play an NFL game yet. He's been trolling Cam ever since. Pretty crazy how egotistical those sportswriters can be. It was mentioned on Firsttake how some people didn't appreciate how Peter King was trolling Cam. So it seems like that weird relationship/connection he has with Cam is not going without notice by the media. Looks like panthers' fans aren't the only ones who notice his uncanny behavior.

 

Pretty good read:

idk if race has anything to do with it or not...

 

 

Actually I think that it's just that King is a giant egotistical douchebag who's just as bad (if not worse) on TV than he is at writing.

I'm tired of hearing that this is the origin of King's hatred. The real beginning was when an 8 year old Cam got the last piece of pie at Golden Corral.

Dr David Dosa, a geriatrician and assistant professor at Brown University, said that five years of records showed Oscar rarely erring, sometimes proving medical staff at the New England nursing home wrong in their predictions over which patients were close to death.

 

The cat, now five and generally unsociable, was adopted as a kitten at the Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre in Providence, Rhode Island, which specialises in caring for people with severe dementia.

 

Dr Dosa first publicised Oscar's gift in an article in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2007. Since then, the cat has gone on to double the number of imminent deaths it has sensed and convinced the geriatrician that it is no fluke.

The tortoiseshell and white cat spends its days pacing from room to room, rarely spending any time with patients except those with just hours to live.

 

If kept outside the room of a dying patient, Oscar will scratch on the door trying to get in

Can understand why he was mad, especially if he was assured of an interview. I don't know why Peter King would fly down from New York to Spartanburg for Cam (who else was the national media covering in Panthers training camp in 2011?) if he wasn't promised a sitdown. Still though, guy needs to let it go.

he's an idiot, he picked us to finish last in the NFC with a 6-10 record... the day the worst team in the conference finishes 6-10 will be the day Peter King becomes a respected sports writer
