http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/21274642/unpopular-newton-received-rough-treatment-from-other-players-during-pro-bowl

well this is disappointing. some highlights...

Quote:
The intensity immediately caught my eye. Pro Bowls aren't known for rushing the passer or trying to get the quarterback down -- especially not the 2012 version -- but there was no denying that the AFC players went hard after Carolina quarterback Cam Newton late in last year's game.

The reason: Newton dissed some of his brethren at the Pro Bowl.

According to several players in the game, some from both teams, Newton's standoffish, diva ways made him enemy No. 1 in the eyes of some of the players.

"He was a total ----hole," one AFC player said. "Who did he think he was? He acted like the big s---. Here he was at his first game and he acted like he was the star. Guys didn't like that."

So when Newton turned down one player's request for an autograph and a picture for his kids at a function, it angered the player.

"Who the hell did he think they were?" said one player. "The only people around are families. He knew that. Yet he big-timed the guy by saying 'now's not the time.'"

That player said Newton did the unthinkable and even dissed Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

"That's the godfather there," one player said. "Can you believe he did that?"

Said another player: "It didn't matter who it was, he didn't care about anybody but himself."



i find it hard to believe he dissed ray considering they talked last season (ray did deny the accusations that cam dissed him in the article)... and i also find it hard to believe he'd turn down an autograph and picture for a kid... after all, he always throws the ball into the stands and he also had the special needs kid at his post-draft presser. idk. i wish our QB was liked. though i suppose everyone eventually starts getting hated by press or fans (cutler, rodgers, brady, big ben, vick, tebow). oh well.

what are your thoughts?

Come join us homie!

Pretty much most realize this is just an agenda against Newton for the most part.

But it's to be expected with such a big persona.

I think he probably did rub some players the wrong way ala Jordan in the All-Star game.

However, I think this article is pretty darn biased (just look at the chart below it - hilarious) and exaggerates on some things.

is anyone really surprised by this? did anyone think cam was a humble guy? now this doesn't affect me liking him as an athlete. but i won't be buying a jersey or anything like that until he grows up. i have a son and i don't want him idolizing a guy like this like i idolized andre reed and jim kelly growing up. happy he's on my team just hope he eventually grows up

Proof there is a disconnect between Steve and Cam.

Maybe they were right.

He couldn't have been any more direct about this. Who goes first, Steve or Cam?

Get rid of em both, I say we let Clausen be the franchise and bring back Dwayne Jarrett.





I actually can't even type that with a straight face, that would be awful.

Awful? That's the only word you can think of to describe that? Awful?

Calling that awful is like saying Michael Bay kinda likes to blow things up.

Cam should learn some respect. Take a page out of the books of these stand up players. Maybe drop some quotes smearing other player's reputations and not put his name next to it.

Funny how Cam's been very good the last two games and Prisco still writes a story from the charade that is the pro-bowl. It's kinda performance based, but it's literally a popularity contest.


Look at Cam's current commercials. The play-60 pokes fun at Cam, he brought on Stew and Murphy for the phone commercial and his UA commercial features Smith. He's working on that image.
