Ron Rivera: Cam Newton is Simply Misunderstood

According to HC Ron Rivera, as told to Albert Breer, Cam has gotten a bit of a bad rep

quote:

"I sat down with him, and we visited, and I tried to get him to understand, 'Don't put this all on yourself, it's all part of your growth,' " Rivera explained. "Thing is, he just wants to win. And he gets mad about it. And then people misinterpret his reaction, his demeanor, without talking to him. He doesn't open up to a lot of people, he's just a private guy, and that gets taken as him snubbing people, when he's not. But he does listen."

Rivera makes some good points, specifically about Cam maturing under scrutiny and having to learn not to carry the load by his self. Pretty well-written and insightful article

This could be a good spinoff for the "openly gay athletes" thread.

Cam is a selfish unlikable douche. Even Auburn fans should be able to admit that.

When Cam Newton stops doing those ridiculous Superman celebrations, like he is some god, even when down multiple touchdowns, then I might like him. Until then, take a cue from the classy QB's such as Manning, Brady, and Brees. Don't showboat when you score or throw a touchdown. A single fist pump is allowed, but nothing more.

BTW, I lump Rodgers in with Newton for that ridiculous belt maneuver he makes when he scores a rushing TD. Show some class, guys. Act like you have done this before.

I don't mind when he gives his own TD balls to the fans. It pisses me off when he takes a teammates TD ball, and gives it to the fans.

re: Ron Rivera: Cam Newton is Simply Misunderstood
I don't have a problem with him. I like him. He is a phenom. He just wants to win. Isn't that why you play the game? Besides, it is Rivera who should be scrutinized, not Cam.
