Re: Really dislike Cam Newton but....

I've never liked Cam. He was a thief at Florida. He lied about his time at Auburn. When the Panthers were losing, Cam still, somehow, thought of himself as Superman. When they won this this year, he acted like the completely self absorbed punk he is. When they lost in the Super Bowl, he acted like the completely self absorbed punk he is. I don't understand how people are somehow shocked by his actions. He is who he is. A great athlete. An emerging great QB. A self absorbed punk.

I agree with you, except that I don't think anyone is necessarily shocked. I'm not. It's more shock that people can still defend his actions.

... and I'd be interested in seeing that meme and/or what politician's behaviors you're exactly trying to draw a parallel to with Cam's because I don't see the analogy. I'll tell ya' right now, I can at least watch Cam in the performance of his duties whereas observing these politicians at work makes me want to puke and tune out.

I think we hold our professional athletes to higher standards because they make so much money, it costs us so much to follow a sport & it's the American way to expect a bang for your buck & because they've reached the highest pinnacle of their career path, are considered "professionals" and should act like one, #shrug.

I don't understand why this is such a hard concept to grasp with the twenty-something crowd & will just have to shrug it off as generational, I guess, .

Re: Really dislike Cam Newton but....

Slo-mo, I'm still in my twenties (barely) and I feel the same way toward the twenty something crowd. I constantly feel like I'm stuck in the wrong time period. I have a hard time relating to people. They just annoy the crap out of me much of the time, lol. It's not really funny, but I want today to be a good day.

Yeah, and I don't mean to generalize, I got two "twenty-somethings" for kids & they give me hell about it, .

We're all just compilation of our own unique experiences and environment in life, so IDK. When I was a kid, I used to pay attention to my elders, or at least take into consideration their experience in life. I don't see that as much today, #shrug. No problem, we can just go ahead and repeat the mistakes of the past, as far as I'm concerned. My ass is covered, .

Don't be too anti-social though, it's all about "networking" and "interacting" today if you want to get ahead, .

Yeah, I certainly don't have a problem with every single person, and I don't actually hate anybody. It takes a lot to hate. But I was just raised a different way from most people around my age. Most people who grew up during the time that my parents did, were hippies, so they passed their mindless garbage on to their kids. My parents, however, would have strung us up by ours genitals if we disrespected them, or did any of the crap kids are doing today....maybe that's a little extreme... but they were very much disciplinarians.

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

The more telling moment for me was when he didn't get the roughing call after getting hit in the end zone. He threw a silent fit that spoke volumes!
