Cam Newton Brings Out The Worst In Everyone

Recommended Posts

Cam Newton is not demure—he's maybe less reserved than any other prominent quarterback of the past decade. And, as he's found, being the unhammered nail in the NFL opens you up to critics who broadly apply their old-fart, authoritarian sensibilities to you, with unfortunate results.

...

This is a very old game, and the fact that players with supposedly bad attitudes have succeeded and players with supposedly good attitudes have failed doesn't seem to prevent people from playing it still. Newton should've demonstrated the folly of this particular line of analysis once and for all. And yet here we are: Cam Newton, who won a freaking national championship in college, is a winner now because he learned some manners, according to ESPN.

We'll see how long we can keep this unlocked and in the Panthers section. The article pulls no punches, and it shouldn't.

why are deadspin articles so damn near unreadable.

 

I mean, I get the point they're trying to drive across, but why do so many of their articles read like they were written by a fifth grader who just discovered a thesaurus?

There are so many racial undertones and other issues in this poorly written article that I don't have the energy or desire to confront them.

I don't find them hard to read at all. Maybe for people with a limited lexicon the articles might be somewhat ponderous, but they are usually very well written.

By racial undertones do you, by chance, mean calling old racist white guys, well, old racist white guys - in not so few words of course.
