Cam IG post: “Sometimes you just have to play the role of a fool; to fool the fool who thinks they are fooling you!!”

Recommended Posts

Dude, nobody gives a sh-t.

This isn't world events. The fate of national and global economies isn't riding on what gets reported about whether the Lions want to trade Matt Stafford or the Bengals are gonna be able to sign Joe Burrow.

It's sports reporting, which is not only speculative by its very nature, but also dependent on sources that have agendas.

Agents lie to try to engineer things for their clients.

Teams put out misinformation for their own purposes.

Hell, even accurate reporting can blow up if a team, player or someone else changes their mind.

That's just the nature of the business.

But here's the thing: Let's say someone reports with absolute certainty that the Panthers and Cam Newton are parting ways, but then it doesn't prove true. You know what's gonna happen?

Nothing.

Nada.

Niente.

Not a damn thing.

No investigations will be launched. No accusations will be leveled. No charges will be filed. Nobody's getting fired. There will be no federal indictments and no crisis of journalistic integrity will be declared.

Why?

Because it's just sports talk.

It's fun for fans, just like talking about what happened on General Hospital is fun for soap opera fans or discussing whether the latest episode of Doctor Who was up to the standards of the classic shows is for nerds.

That's all the importance there is to it though. So quit clutching your pearls as if this were some watershed moment in current events.

Again, it's just sports.

Nobody gives a sh-t.

Nobody engineered anything. The owner refuting Cam's comment on tape did.

coming out on ig to say you're playing a fool to fool the fool is almost as good as having some essential oils and colloidal silver that will cure aids, take the place of vaccines, and keep the wutang virus away.   who in their right mind that's not 12 would follow anyone on ig

Another morning on the huddle, another "old man yells at cloud" post from raz.

Take it to Facebook with the rest of the bitter old guys. You'll fit in perfectly.

Posters acting like click bait era and not reporting accurately isn’t a issue in this day and age is asinine.
 

I read articles from journalist and creditable sports writers expecting some shred of insight to the situation, not to hear the same opinions I can read under a fb comment section. Notice Adam Schefter isn’t spamming articles, I wonder why

New ownership seems clumsy, unsophisticated and lacking the class needed for delicate and or complicated situations. Amateurish, lacking in professionalism. Bull in a China shop.
Getting called out for Gettleman type behavior. It's not strategy if everyone has figured you out.

It is difficult to find much to disagree with about this.

The optics are definitely reminiscent of the DG personnel management methods. What's the common theme between him and what we've seen from Tepper though? Ego. Ego. Ego. Does that sound a little like a certain Jerry Richardson also? No bueno.

Nah. Just having a laugh at people who think that speculation in sports reporting is some kind of a scandal when it's always been that way.

The only real differences between now and how it was when I was a kid are that one, social media allows for more talk than there was before and two, you have dumbasses like Jim Rome who spend more time talking about themselves than they actually do sports.

But as far as speculation and/or people getting things wrong, neither of those things are a big deal and acting like they are is pearl clutching silliness.

Anyone who has seen enough Mr. Scot posts over the years should be able to see right through his angry pearl clutching remarks.

So how will this be created into an article? Cam is playing to role of the fool to fool Tepper who is trying to fool Cam?

Weird that someone could watch that, and their only immediate takeaway be to begin mocking him for his hairstyle.
