Cam Newton is no longer the bad boy of the NFL. His childish antics in losing the Super Bowl got him in hot water.
When the realization hit that the presumptive winner of the Super Bowl lost, Cam Newton had a meltdown. The Denver defense shut Newton down, and they shut him up. On the field, Newton’s disappointment was evident. But his post-game press conference sealed the deal.
Wearing a hoodie with the hood up, Newton gave short answers to reporters’ questions. Only minutes into the press conference, Newton abruptly walked off the podium.
They say Newton acted even worse in the locker room. I’m sure he was disappointed. Losing sucks. But true winners learn how to lose. They understand the disappointment of losing and train to minimize it.
Kaepernick is a loser. He got to the Super Bowl and he lost. He’s been a loser ever since. His recent tirade against the National Anthem is really subterfuge for him being a loser.
As the Daily Wire reports, Cam Newton tried to minimize the damage for Kaepernick, while teaching him a lesson Newton learned the hard way:
“Who am I to say ‘Colin, you’re wrong’? And who am I to say ‘Bro, you’re right’? Because we all, you know, we all have the right to think whatever we wanna think. And I respect that by everybody,” Newton told ESPN (or MSNBC with footballs).
Here’s where the pro-quarterback angered folks on the left: explaining that the color of our skin doesn’t, and shouldn’t divide us; we are all the “same color” under “one-eighth of an inch” of skin, he said.
“How does one-eighth of an inch — something so small — be the difference in such a big [subject]?” asked Newton. “And that’s the thickness of our skin: one-eighth of an inch. And under that we’re all the same color. You know? And that’s the big picture.”
“You know, a lot of scrutiny happens when athletes start talking about, you know, race, but the truth of the matter is we gotta do right by each other. No matter what color we are,” he added.
For trying to help Kaepernick, Newton received the lash of the Left. How dare he not side with Kaepernick?

Re: Cam Newton. To much is given, much is expected. As he matures, I hope Cam learn that his success requires him speak up for his people.
