People are still not letting Cam Newton live after walking away from the press room after the Carolina Panthers lost the Super Bowl on Sunday night.
There are still right-wing think pieces and analyses’ being made over that fact that Cam didn’t follow up his Super Bowl 50 loss with a smile and a nod. Between the “poor sport” criticism and “boy” references, Cam is finally speaking up and out about the ‘controversy’ that seems to surround his mood during the post show press conference.
“I’ve been on record to say I’m a sore loser. Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser, and I’m going to show you a loser.”
Saying that he was beyond tears, the only emotion he had was, in sum, saltiness.
“I’ve got no more tears to cry. I’ve obviously had a lot of time to think about it. I’ve seen so much blown out of proportion. At the end of the day, when you invest so much time and sacrifice so much and things don’t go as planned, the emotions take over.”
While he does acknowledge that he wasn’t in the best mood during the conference, he said that is to be expected of someone who just lost a major game, not because it was a blow to his ‘ego’.
“As far as trying to be like this person, trying to be like that person…the truth of that matter is I’m not trying to be like this person. This is a great league with or without me. I am my own person. I said it since day one. I am who I am. I know what I’m capable of, and I know where I’m going. I don’t have to conform to anybody else’s wants…I’m not that guy.”
While Cam owned up to his bad mood, we’re sure that the critics won’t accept it and continue to accuse him of being a pompous player who should be ashamed of himself, despite the fact that there are others on the field who are actually doing unethical activities.
