    Apparently the media have their collective tit in a ringer because Cam Newton laughed / snickered when a female reporter quized him about his receivers’ pass routes. No doubt she played four years of college ball as a “tight end” and was very adept at analyzing routes and reading defensive pass coverage. So, he shouldn’t have impuned her purported football prowess with a giggle - a dismissive giggle at that. How dare he?
    I thought about it for a few minutes and decided that Cam may want to call a presser with several, assorted women of child bearing age and review the finer points of tampon insertion and removal followed by a Q & A.

    It's being massively blown out of proportion. I totally get where he was coming from. It wasn't a slam at women, just an oddity for him that he commented on. It's over-sensitive PC crap.

    He's a terrific athlete. Just gets too snarky for his own good, particularly on bad days.

    Sorry, they lost me. I haven't paid any attention to the game or the athletes in two years.

    With the same respect, mention to him that you feel taking a knee is insulting and you see no reason for it, let me know who gets sensitive after that.

    You want to be sensitive about that crap, that is up to you.

    What kind of man demands respect but does not give it...its easy; someone who has never earned it.

    I don't know if he's part of the kneeling stuff or not, I know little about the guy. I was just commenting on this specific situation.

    I am not calling you out, just stating the obvious, he want respect to be given him because he can sometimes do his job, but quick to call out others when they are doing their job.

    Old news. He's cocky as hell and sometimes gets called out for it. Just another talented individual who got given too much money and fame and does a poor job dealing with it all. After his dismal performance in the super bowl I made the prediction that he will never participate in another one. I hope I am proven wrong but I really don't think he cares. He doesn't have the competitiveness of a Tom Brady who wants to win at all costs.

    I've never been a fan of Cam, but I'll defend his statement here. He said, "It's funny hearing a woman talk about routes." Funny also means odd or unusual. It isn't typical for a female to talk about offensive football concepts and game strategy, it just isn't!

    He even lost his Dannon yogurt sponsorship over it. I guess that statement was too....
    uncultured. (I'll be here all week, try the veal)
