Which one of you losers is this?

When the Panthers unceremoniously released Cam Newton I knew that I would need to reevaluate my consumption of the NFL. I had been a fan of the Carolina Panthers since 2001, sat through 2 heart crushing Super Bowl Loses, (the second of which made it difficult for me to enjoy football in general for several years) and the organization was again making an obvious mistake giving up on the only real reason anybody outside of the Carolina's cared about their franchise. The Panthers not only failed to protect Cam Newton in Carolina, they neglected to ever pair him with another dynamic play maker on offense until drafting CMC. It was already becoming difficult to watch Panther games as I became to question the point of wasting 3 hours of my Sundays on a broken product, and becoming emotionally invested in something that I did not in any way benefit from.

So Carolina releases Cam via Twitter. Among all of the chaos in the world, an NFL team releasing an NFL player shouldn't change anyone worldview, but it just logically didn't make any sense for me to continue being a "fan" of any sports organization. Their wins and their loses are their wins and their loses. I can observe from the outside and enjoy the amazing talent on the field, but getting emotionally invested is a waste of my time I thought.

And so I tuned in yesterday for the first time in my adult life as a causal speculator of the NFL. No rooting interests. I was excited to see Cam obviously, but I was equally as excited to see Brees V Brady, Lamar, Rogers, hell even Josh Allen. It was nice to just enjoy the greatest sport on Earth without any bias. It was akin to being at the movie theater as opposed to playing a game of chess, but you're not controlling any of the pieces. I'm sure the NFL prefers it that way. I consume more of their product, more advertisers are in front of my face, its a win win. And then Cam Newton scored his first Touchdown.

The thing about Cam Newton is that he not only loves football, he loves life, and he doesn't care about the undue criticism that he has endured throughout his NFL career. He has somehow found a way to embrace who he is and play at a high level. It is inspiring,always has been. It is also infectious to be around. Thats how the bum ass Carolina Panthers managed to briefly go over .500 as a franchise. (Currently sitting at 195-205-1 ) Its infectious on the field but it is also infectious to watch. I was hooked. When he handed the ball to Andrews for the spike and you can see how happy he is for Andrews, I need that energy directly in my veins the rest of 2020. Win Lose or draw, being positive, taking care of each others and trying our best is the best any of us could ask of ourselves at this point in time. That is who Cam Newton is.

This is obviously a world class organization and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. That game was never in question yesterday and that was clearly a watered down version of what this team will look like in 8 weeks. The coaching staff is perhaps the best in any organized sport. This is a potent combination and makes for perhaps the most interesting NFL season for me personally, ever. As a born New Englander, but also a lifelong Patriot hater (moved down south at 6) I am officially off of the fence. I hope this team wins the damn Super Bowl and I will be rooting all of the way. And it feels damn good.”

That sentiment is everywhere. People loved Cam. Nothing wrong with that. 
 

They’re kidding themselves if they think Belichick is going to give Cam a warm send off.

Nothing wrong with changing teams because of one player? I find it beyond pathetic.  Why would Pats fans welcome this idiot if he will just go pull for the next team when convenient

Bingo. Never met a Pats fan until after 2001.

Plenty of Celtics & Bosox fans, though. When BB retires, the Pats will go back to being #3 in that town.

Because 60% of their entire fanbase is bandwagoners? I see Pats fans gear on people that have never even stepped foot in New England. They are the new Cowboys/Steelers

Cookie Lyon maybe... really take your pick any one of the hundred ‘die hard Panther fans’ who suddenly disappeared after cam

my guess is this person was not a fan since 2001 I mean who is going to admit they creepily follow one player around lol gotta try start off with some credibility on the pats forum

Anyone who abandons their team to chase a player wasn't a fan of the team. Especially when they jump to the most hated team in the NFL.

meh, people who followed cam never had a team

it’s more like saying they’d abandon their player to chase a team if they were to stay

its why this person clearly isn’t a fan since 2001. 19 years being a fan and all you mention is cam?
 

There’s been a lot of poo from this franchise in that long of time just to mention 1 player. 
 

Another way to tell is how fans react to the new ownership and team, cam era fans don’t understand pre cam Panther era (and most the nfl at all) if they did they wouldn’t be so cynical/harsh about the way things work, what’s been done and where the team is trying to go

The rich doctor hated Cam tho.

anyway. I don’t root for the patriots. I root for Cam. He’s fun to watch and he’s the best player this franchise has ever had at the most important position. I’m a panthers fan but I will watch him and hope he does well and gets a ring. It’s as simple as that. 

some of y’all need to realize there were a bunch of fans rooting for this team BECAUSE of cam. That’s gone. Nobody gives a poo about this franchise. CMC doesn’t have star power even tho he’s a baller. The Carolinas have a weak fan base because we are mediocre. This is a mediocre franchise with horrible decision making.  Cam is a superstar and we ruined our chances with him. Our first and only superstar in franchise history. If cam balls out with the patriots some of y’all will just say it’s because of BB. But what you should be saying is we RUINED our chances with a crazy elite talent at the most important position in football because we had Ron fuging Rivera, Marty Hurney and DG with a racist, sexual predator as an owner. We deserve watching whatever success Cam has outside the Carolinas. He deserved better.
