I was just about to study for my exam tomorrow when i decided to get online and read something. I happen to stumble upon a story about Cam Newton, the QB of Auburn who helped his team win the National Champion and also won honors as the Nation’s Best QB and most importantly the 2010 – 2011 Heisman Trophy Winner. In my opinion, he deserved it since he did everything the “books” told him to do in order to win a championship. He played well on the field and won the hearts of many, expect the heart of his enemies (of course).
Injustice is something which really ticks me off and I think it is unfair how Cam Newton and his father have been scruntized since day one. No one cared about his dad taking momey from schools when he was transferring; but soon after his name was all over the news as one of the best QBs, someone took it upon themselves to do a personal reserch about his life and bring out every flaw of him (who ever that person is shoulod get a life. If that is his life, he needs a new one).
We are not perfect. We all have issues here and there, but it really sucks when people try to judge you based on your past mistakes and it sucks when people do not give you the respect you deserve. What got me to write this is because the NFL.com article is probably one of the worst articles ever; in the sense that, it was suppose to talk about Cam Newton working out for scouts at the NFL combine, but the last paragraph, in my opinion was inserted to remind team owners and coaches not to select Cam Newton this coming April during the NFL draft, since he has a past. I feel as though this is very pathetic and very uncalled for. Below is the article:
“FORT WORTH, Texas — Cam Newton plans to fully participate in the NFL combine that begins later this week, saying he wants “to be transparent” through the whole draft process.
The quarterback who won the national title and Heisman Trophy in his only season at Auburn has to adjust to taking snaps under center for the NFL. He has been working with a quarterbacks coach, and held a workout for the media earlier this month.
Newton, who accepted the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s best quarterback on Monday, says he’s prepared to work out for NFL teams at the combine and answer their questions.
The NCAA has ruled Newton’s father tried to get Mississippi State to pay for him to play there. There was no evidence Newton knew what his father did.”

The NCAA has ruled Newton’s father tried to get Mississippi State to pay for him to play there. There was no evidence Newton knew what his father did.” <<<< —- Who really cares? Why does this have to be there. This article was meant to talk about how Cam Newton is ready to play in the NFL and how he is preparing towards it. The last paragraph was just to remind us of how “evil” Cam Newton and his father can be.
I believe he deserve a chance. The same football fans who were screaming for the head of Michale Vick after his incident are now screaming his name and praising his name.
My question is, how come Brett Favre and Big Ben have not face such scrutiny? Can we all make it fair?
