These guys work their whole lives for that moment and, I believe, are allowed to be in a crappy mood when they lose. Just my 2 cents.
It's Ok to support Cam, I kinda' use to before this, #shrug. I have higher standards for grown men and professional athletes though, and Cam's let me down, .

This is how I know Cam is a child. His supporters use stuff like this to deflect and give him the consideration you would give a 14yr old who just lost the city championship, #shrug. I'm tired of people defending poor behavior, it's a fricken' societal pandemic, IMO.

None of this is relevant. Nobody is upset because Cam has a goal in life & pursues it. Nobody is upset because Cam doesn't like losing. In fact, that's probably a pretty favorable trait to have as a pro, #shrug.

Again, it is 100% about his behavior and nothing else. What Cam did at his interview was the equivalent of sitting on the bench and covering his head with a towel during his previous setbacks. By sulking, not answering questions like those around him & who've gone before him, he disrespects the game, the league, his team, his coaches, his efforts, himself, et ...

I would like to think he had more consideration for something he's "worked his entire life for" and/or is so passionate about, #shrug ... but I guess that's the way it is with the twenty-something crowd, #smh.

I remember having guys like Cam in my units, in the military. Great fun-loving guys, always cutting up, jokin' & smokin' having a good time, loving what they do ... but when it was "go" time, you could never fully rely on them to get the job done, kinda' like Cam in the SuperBowl, #shrug.

It's Ok to enjoy what you're doing and have a good time, but eventually you have to put aside childish things and be a man about stuff, #shrug.

We're being a lot easier on him then his own fan base ... he's getting murdered on the Panther boards, . SuperBowl L MVP Von Miller nailed it when he said Cam & Co. were more concerned with being "rappers & back-up dancers" leading up to the big game ... where they met a focused group of grown men more concerned with being Champions, #shrug.

Re: Really dislike Cam Newton but....

I agree the Panthers bought into the hype and got caught up in all the media distractions. The Broncos stayed focused and took care of business.
Sadly (for them) Carolina has a talented team and it's not easy getting to the Super Bowl. That opportunity doesn't come to often but it's history now. So they have to start over and think about what could have, would have, should have been.

Yep, apparently he hasn't learned a damn thing, #smh. Oh well, best of luck to him, #shrug, hope he wins a million SuperBowls, he'll still be a loser at life/adulthood, .

Re: Really dislike Cam Newton but....

I saw this meme earlier relating to Cam Newton about how we hold our athletes to a higher standard than our politicians. It just makes all this seem so ridiculous.

It is, and Cam's the one making it so ridiculous. It may even comment to how we in US society place more of a value on professional athletics vs education, being doctors/lawyers/scientists, et ... but I don't really see anyone in here giving politicians a pass on anything. If anything, I see a disdain.

I started to warm up to Cam this season because I thought he had corrected some of his deficiencies, but I guess not, #shrug. This whole "Cam vs the World" schtick is passe', self-centered and really just Cam trying to make himself relevant in issues that just aren't there, #shrug.

The NFL is getting saturated with Cam's, Johnny's, Junior's. We're seeing the end of a once great pastime, IMO.

I'm not sure about that. I think the standard between those two is mostly parallel. You have people that want to make excuses for guys like cam, because they are all caught up in this modern culture of "expressing yourself". And a lot of those same people don't hold their politicians to a high standard because they never educate themselves about the people they are voting for. They go with whatever is popular. These people are easily fooled.

But then you have the people who are highly critical of athletes, and are likewise with their politicians. Unfortunately none of our criticism is heard. Or at least it isn't given consideration.

The negativity toward athletes is more of a public thing, because entertainment is where the most conversation is at. It's not a subject where people are concerned about revealing their beliefs. That's the unfortunate thing, is that too many people are scared to stand up publicly. Lot's of people have strong opinions toward politics and religious matters, but won't talk about it.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
