Let me add another: the sports talk radio hosts are forever trying to get him to come on, or at least call in to their show. He never does. Never has to my reccollection, in his two years there. His DADDY does his talking for him. I'm not making this up. They have his dad call in about once a week and his dad is speaking for Cam. Unbelievable. And like I said, Cam has been known to go on the sports talk radio in Atlanta on several occassions. Dickish, right?

And this story just came out. I wouldn't be surprised if some of Prisco's sources speak up.

The reason why I have an issue with this story is that it comes across as a media type getting their feelings hurt or being stunned that a professional athlete is a jerk. Especially since these sports media types, ESPECIALLY TALK RADIO HEADS, are the biggest jerks imaginable. They shape the public mindset based on these things. Its the most annoying thing ever, and so many fans just fall hook line and sinker for it. It reminds me of the Lebron's a jerk stories that came out after The Decision., including one story about Lebron not liking "gourmet french fries."
Jay Glazer said some real stuff over the alleged Randy Moss story about him being upset at some cold food when he joined the Vikings in 2010. Glazer said many players in the NFL aren't the greatest of people to the point that it's not that serious as many of his peers make it out to be. Its probably why Glazer gets a lot of scoops and inside stories that he can go on record on, while guys like Pete Prisco have to run stories with "unnamed sources."
Pete Prisco comes across as one of these "he hurt my feelings" types, like the sports radio show you referenced earlier. Because of that, they run stories like this.
If this story is as old as it is, why didn Prisco run with it in the offseason? Was he waiting for Cam to have a below 2011 season so that he could use those quotes?

The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money. - Alexis de Tocqueville
And the chart accompanying the article is what im getting at
Can you, or anyone, tell me the importance of referencing Cam Newton's condo purchase and the price it cost? The, "I need a vacation quote" before his rookie year? This is incredible.
Asia: as far as your question of how many times RG3 has been on radio in DC, I honestly have no idea.
And no, you may not have said the facts of Prisco's stories being untrue, but you're still defending Cam in this thread. And I've seen you do it with nearly ever thread involving him. He's one of the worst guys you can't possibly defend, bro. Doesn't it tell you anything when his OWN teammates have called him out several times? Isn't it also telling that some of his own (if you believe Prisco) teammates in the Pro Bowl didn't like him?
Btw, the thing about Moss. Glazer had every right to say whatever he said. Do you not know the whole story behind that Moss incident? From what I can recount, the Vikings had some food catered in once and Moss just out the blew shouts something like "this food tastes like ****" and he wouldn't shut up. A lot of his teammates were embarrassed, because if I recall, the caters had actually heard his rant. Dude went full blown clown that day, bro.
As for this Cam story just now coming out: that is curious to me also. But as I said, the co-host here asked him today about that and Prisco said that it was a story he had started right after the Pro Bowl. I can't remember his exact reasoning for why just now putting it out there...Prisco also made it clear that he had nothing at all against Cam and that Cam had always been cool with him as far as being accessible. I have my doubts about that, but that's what he said. There's definitely some reasoning for why he's just now putting this out there, but only he would know.

I actually dont like Cam that much. The biggest issue I have is how he tried to blame his negative perceptions entering the league on other black QBs failures like Vince, Jamarcus Russell, and Akili Smith. It was the stupidest and most immature thing he has said during his time in the NFL, imo, and it disgusted me. He basically fed into the narrative that these jackoff media types like Pete Prisco have already penned. Its why I also salute RG3 because the media tried to play that game earlier in the year with the McNabb comments, and RG3 sidestepped it. Then he went further and said, "I want to be compared to Rogers and Brady and other of the best QBs." And he said Randall Cunningham was one of his favorite QBs, along with Elway and Vick.
I dont like Cam that much, but I dislike the media narrative even more. How he is compared to guys who are out of the NFL in his 2nd year. Or how "people are only judging Cam based off 25 games when they should be judging him off getting arrested as an 18 year old," which suggested earlier. THAT is what I have a problem with.
its douchebag things like that, which causes me to be disgusted by the sports media.

Personally, I have no idea why Prisco sat on this. I also think Prisco is a dick. I don't think highly of Cam Newton either, and I don't question the validity of the article. Clearly he did something to rile them up, because they really reacted when he came into the game. I don't like his demeanor/antics. Never have. I also think his attitude will keep him from achieving the level of greatness that he is capable of.
He also must have split personalities or something, for Warren Moon to speak so highly of him, and vouch for him, yet from what I see of Cam, the words don't match up, at all.
This passes for a story these days? 10 months after the game occurred? It's garbage TMZ level journalism plain and simple.
This dude couldn't get one person to go on the record for this story except for Cam and the Ravens PR guy and sat on it for 10 months. I'm not doubting the validity of it but it's trash

lol why are people upset that Cam is being 'unfairly' targeted? He brings it on himself. We heard we was a cocky douche, then we see him act like a cocky douche at pressers etc. Now, it's suddenly hard to believe he acted like a cocky douche at the pro bowl? **** Cam Newton, he appears to have a horrible attitude, and it doesn't surprise me at all to hear he disrespected NFL veterans.
and so what if the article doesn't give the exact names of players? It was probably Von Miller, so what, who cares who it was. It's not the first time names have been withheld for their own good. Players always open up when they know they'll be anonymous. With words like ******* lol, which has been associated with Cam anyway. Can't stand him really.
