Newton: Teammates need to be at 'my level'
 
Quote:

ďWhat happens when you take a lion out of the safari and try to take him to your place of residence and make him a house pet? ... It ainít going to happen,Ē Newton said. ďThatís the type of person that I am. Iím that lion. The house that Iím in is somewhat of a tarnished house where losing is accepted. But Iím trying to change that, whether Iím going to have to turn that house into a safari or Iím just going to have to get out of that house.Ē

The kid is still very immature and needs to hire a publicist. While I can see where his heart is at and what his intentions were, that came out entirely the wrong way... by a mile.

Class he still needs to graduate: COM 101

already?
He's opening his mouth already?

Man, I love the Saints.

Let him open up his mouth. He better be ready for the fall. DUMB.

This is just the start of his crap. Really, really bad choice by the Panthers. I wonder when he starts to make his demands, what a a$$hole. And to think it hasn't even been a full year.

Oh well I'm glad my team resides in the home of the lion tamers

You're right. He's a frustrated young guy who said some dumb things and in a day and age where every word by an athlete is digested and regurgitated by anyone with access to the internet, comments like those can get you run off by a fan base. However, he is setting rookie records so he'll be granted some leeway certainly.

I'd be pretty disappointed by the comments if I was a Panthers fan. The Superman schtick would be (and is) irritating to me. That reeks of selfishness and super egoism.
