re: Any Punishment for Cam Newton?


yes, I am in fact basing my observation of a individual play by the clip of that individual play and not the whole game.

I believe if my opinion changed based on the rest of the game, that would in fact be bias.

ETA: before we get into an argument over this, let me re establish my indifference to the whole situation. The other guy wasn't in the right either holding onto him after he was down, but cam definitely overreacted. Cam was flagged, and looked like a fool. I have no issues here.

re: Any Punishment for Cam Newton?


you quoted my post which was 100% discussing that single play and told me I had to watch the rest of the game to get a better idea....

How does that make sense?

ETA: Unless they showed multiple angles of that play later on in the game, I don't see how watching the rest of the game would change what I see.

Seriously? Do you really think everything happens in a vacuum?

Thank god you are not a judge or something man:

Well the evidence is kinda iffy that he committed that crime but if you look at his record, he probably did, so let's convict him

Why are we not talking about the player who slammed his knee on the ground after Cam was already down?

The hatred for Cam is ridiculous, and this is coming from a lifelong Saints fan.


Bc Cam is the face of a franchise and one of the more popular players in the whole league. They were both in the wrong and should both be punished for it. Cam deserves to be suspended for making contact with an official because if he doesn't then the NFL is opening a can of worms. The apology should mean nothing when it comes to punishment.

I agree that he must be punished, but people are ignorant if they think he popped off for no reason. In my opinion, the player who intentional tried to take him out of the game AFTER THE PLAY WAS OVER needs a more a severe punishment.

This. Pretty damn apparent that game had gotten out of control.

I dont believe he popped off for no reason. I think he was pissed that the guy was holding on to his leg.

whose exaggerating now. If holding onto a guys leg is "trying to take him out of the game" then I believe in your nfl; every single play would end in a fine.

If you want to say that the raider player got a fit of donkey kong and double sided gripped cams knee and hulk smashed it to the ground, then I'll just let you go on thinking whatever you want to think, because there is no reasoning to be had.

In conclusion:

Both players acted incorrectly. One guy held onto cams lower body well after the play and Cam cleated him. Then he got up and gorilla posed the ref. Cam was more foolish about it so he came out looking like the only culprit. His fault

Trying to defend either player just seems foolish to me.

Fine both if that will make the masses happy, I really dont care.

However... these two players get ejected and no referee was hit, nor was any punches thrown.

Chargers vs Raiders

Sounds like the ref completely overreacted.
