You can’t have it both ways, Cam.
You can’t be that player who when everything is going great celebrates louder and more profoundly than everyone else, and when things aren’t going so well, you run and hide.
Not much went wrong for the Carolina Panthers this past season up until Super Bowl 50. Carolina took the league by storm finishing 15-1, cruising through the NFC playoffs to reach the Super Bowl.
Through all of the Panthers’ success this season, one thing was constant, as long as Cam Newton was winning, everyone was going to know about it.
Newton can be seen here leading a team celebration on the sideline during a blowout win over the Buccaneers. Keep in mind this is happening while the game is still going on.
Or if you want a montage of Newton celebrations from this past season, this will serve you well too.
I think this illustrates the type of winner Cam Newton wants to be, which while I don’t agree with, is completely fine as long as when you don’t win, you show dignity and class.
Cam Newton did not show much dignity or class with his podium performance following Carolina’s 24-10 loss to the Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
Here’s the transcript of what Cam said postgame.
And yes, having to listen to Chris Harris Jr. boast about the win while you were trying to answer reporters’ questions would have ticked most people off, it’s still a very bad look to act the way Cam did after the loss.
If Cam Newton did indeed hear every word coming out of Chris Harris Jr.’s mouth after the game, then he essentially got a taste of his own medicine and he didn’t like one bit of it.
Every other team Cam Newton beat this season had to taste what Newton couldn’t handle after the Super Bowl. Right in front of their eyes, the opposing team gloating over their victory for everyone to see.
But the second it doesn’t go Cam’s way, whether he heard Chris Harris Jr. or not, he acts the way he did. There’s no excuse for it.
