| recently the #panthers (#carolinapanthers) quarterback #camnewton always seems to be the topic of conversation among #nfl fans these days, but it’s not always positive. at his mid-week press conference, #cambnewton sparked another round of conversation by saying race affects how he’s perceived. ‘i’m an african-american #qb that scares people because my skill set isn’t like anybody else’, he said. while that is part of it, there’s also the fact that cam’s so-called brash persona rubs some people the wrong way. for example, #charlesbarkley, a brash & successful former basketball player for the #sixers (#philadelphia76ers or #76ers) said he totally understands why people would dislike cam by the way he acts on the field, whatever the fhug that means. former #bears (#chicagobears) middle linebacker #brianurlacher told usa today that he’s not a fan of the way cam celebrates all of the time & says he wishes he’d be more like #peyton (#peytonmanning), who is widely applauded for being a classy competitor. he said & i quote 'i played defense so i don’t like when guys celebrate w/ dances & stuff. you know who i like the way he celebrates is peyton. he kind of gives the guy a handshake & goes back to the sidelines. i think that’s a great celebration right there. you don’t see him dancing. you don’t see him doing all of that stuff. even when he gets a first down he doesn’t do anything’. that said, #urlacher wouldn’t mind if #thepanthers won the #supervowl, as #ronrivera was his coach in #chicago. he went on to say he was a a huge #riverboaton fan & played for him for three years. he said obviously #charlestillman & #jaredallen plays for the team & he’s known them for a few years but also said he’d like to see peyton go & win the super bowl then retire because he’s such a huge peyton fan but at the same time since chances of getting back to the super bowl & would like to see carolina win as well. i guess in all of his wishy-washed perspective he forgot to mention that peyton is under investigation for alleged doping but yeah, they won’t talk about that when they’re trying to tear cam down. yeah, that.
