Cam Newton Breaks Silence On His Quick Departure Post Game Press Conference
As you may have heard by now, Cam Newton has received severe backlash after his quick departure from the post game press conference Super Bowl night. The NFL MVP abruptuly left the conference and he's now coming forward to speak about it after many have judged him and even racially disrespected his name.
Newton who recently spoke at a Charlotte press conference during the team's last day in the stadium this season stated;
“I’m human. I never once said that I was perfect. I never proclaimed that I was perfect. But at the end of the day, people pick and they do things of that sort – and the truth of the matter is, who are you to say that your way is right? That’s what I don’t understand. We got all these people that’s condemning and saying ‘aw man, he should’ve did this, that, and the third’ but what makes your way right? I’ve been on record to say I’m a sore loser. Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser, and I’ma show you.. a loser. I’m not here to… it’s not a popularity contest, I’m here to win football games.”
He thinks the entire situation was blown out of proportion and he doesn't understand why he's constantly being judged against other NFL players behavior. Newton's actions at the post game conference that night were judged by so many, leading former four-time NFL champion Bill Romanowski to tweet a harsh comment about his attitude including “boy” in the text.
According to ESPN, As he was speaking, teammates stood around him, shouting “we love Cam.”
“I’ve got no more tears to cry,” Newton said. “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. That’s what happens. As far as trying to be like this person, trying to be like that person … the truth of the matter is I’m not trying to be like this person.
