He's a good dude. I've got a friend out in Atlanta where Cam is from. He'd just stop by at the little league football games just to talk to the kids and sign autographs. Nobody had to ask him. He just does it. Showboating on the field isn't indicative of being a bad guy.

I agree on showboating.

I obviously do not know the man so calm only go by the persona you see in the press etc.

I understand. I just don't understand why he's so disliked. RG3 gets the same treatment. They aren't catching rape charges like Big Ben or murder cases like Hernandez.

Re: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton injured in car accident Tuesday

A mixture of reasons i guess. Middle classes don't want to be seen to like things regarded as classless etc, team bias and dare I bring up race. My love of boxing predates my massive interest of the NFL by over a decade and I love reading and watching old fights and it was the same in boxing. A black fighter like Floyd Patterson or Joe Louis was loved were as a outgoing ,flamboyant Ali or Jack Johnson was despised by the masses.
There is also what people see, I rarely meet athletes so my access to them is on TV etc and Newton doesn't come across well,same as reading his history of off field issues in college.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

A franchise QB driving a 1998 pickup truck? sounds more like Juice Newton, not Cam Newton

Showing up for promo events doesn't make you a good guy.

I am not going to say I am glad the guy had an accident. That is not cool.
It is good he was not seriously hurt.
This is the very end of the season so he should sit out with those injuries.

I do not like him very much because he is a lil' crybaby.
