So Cam Newton has received recent back lash because of a letter that went viral about Cam Newton’s on the field antics against the Tennessee Titans. Cam Newton score a game clinching touchdown and did his consistent celebration of the doing the Dab (if you don’t know what the dab is, please follow this link). Then a mother who brought her daughter to the game seemed so disgusted about the way Cam acted that they questioned his character and whether or not he has a Mom or kids.
Now the thing is so off about the letter, is that the woman attacks Cam as if he is not a role model because of his touchdown celebration. What??? Excuse me, but doesn’t everybody celebrate when they score? What about when Aaron Rodgers does it title belt celebration, did people say anything about that. And to be fair, almost every football player is doing the Dab this year, so why just attack Cam??
To say the least, this woman was way out of bounds to call Cam Newton out as if he was doing a horrible thing. Cam is having the best season of his career, and might possibly be the MVP on the League. Plus after all his personal celebrating, he always goes into the crowd and gives a kid a ball, did she mention that.
So what that he kept celebrating after the players got mad. They should have kept him from scoring if they didn’t want him to celebrate and that is exactly what Cam uttered.
Since the letter, Cam did apologize somewhat to the mother saying “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. You can’t fault her for that. It is what it is. If she feels offended, I’ll apologize to her. But at the end of the day, I am who I am.” Looking at athletes as role models is a different issue, but Cam should be unapologetic about the way he plays the game that he loves. Rumble young man Rumble!
Let’s hear what the fellas have to say about this.
