"This Cam Newton fight is…disappointing 😞"
Mon Feb-26-24 11:27 AM by Dstl1

          

that’s a whole, 35 year old, former NFL MVP getting jumped at a 7 on 7 event. What can make it get to this point? That said…Cam is a big brother.

In this angle you can see he had one kid in a bear hug while pulling another kid by his dreads.

far as I know it isn't even regulated from state to state, so you have these "coaches" (who were the ones fighting a former NFL player) with no sort of training or even background checks starting shit

I don’t get it.

and I really don’t get how dude holds a 7 on 7 to help you get more exposure and skills and you try to square up with him.

These people really have no idea how big and strong some of these NFL QB’s are.

or driven by one culture?

This is like when NFL teams scrap in joint practices and folks try to make an example out of a select few and then former players say “hold up, we’ve never had a jojnt practice without a fight”

its like Steeler fans who shit on Tomlin’s players off field issues and say Noll would never.. while forgetting a player shot at a fucking police helicopter and Noll never benched him.

fighting at a football camp is normal.

Its just cause its Cam and he handled 3 dudes with a funny hat on that makes it sensational.

kidding of course, but watching him get into a tussle w/his fucked up hat of the day made me laugh a little. I wouldn't f**k w/him though. Dude is a beast. He's also criminally underrated by a lot of people considering how good he was.

All of this attention should go towards them and their performance on the field. Focus on their development as young men on the field aspiring to play at the next level.

Everyone that jumped Cam should be ashamed as well. Now they embarrassed themselves and those associated with them. Cam is fine regardless but they have to go home to deal with consequences.

Cam doesn't have to be there. He can easily fall back and focus on other things.

With that said, I'm glad he tossed their asses around but you have to establish early that yall aren't equal.
I remember a clip from a few years ago at a camp or maybe it was this same tournament and those youngins were crackin jokes and talkin real slick to him and he was doing the same. Naw, nip that shit in the bud then and if they aren't listening remove yourself from it.

even in Charlotte Panther fans would be all “I LOVE THIS TEAM.. EXCEPT FOR CAM!!!”

Is it college?

Anyone remember Cam’s first pro bowl?

They were trying to kill that dude. Never seen a defense play like that in a pro bowl.

I’ve always been a Cam fan, half the reason is just because people hate him so much. How the hell do you swing on the man at HIS camp?

Heard he may have been breaking up a fight. I hope that is the case and they didn’t try to jump him.

is internet culture.

most these kids who argue with Cam are trying to get views for IG or know someone is videotaping.

and lets not talk about all the white adults talking mad racist shit to Cam and other athletes (especially at NBA games where they know players can hear it.

Still not even sure these were kids fighting or coaches but if its coaches.. we all got duped due to Cam making them look like childs play.

The respect isn't there, and you learn that in the home. If these young men don't have a mentally stable male role model then all they know how to do is CHALLENGE another male. The young men with healthy male role models would want to catch Cam's eye with their talent.

28. "Anyone challenging Russell Wilson? What about Lamar Jackson?"
In response to Reply # 27


          

Jaylen Hurts?
Tua?
Tyrod?
Brissett?
Mahomes?

14 Black QBs started the season this year.

Its only Cam.

and one of the stories floating is Cam was popping off talking shit and it was actually coaches he used to work with and not kids.

Maybe there is a reason Cam is always the one in the middle of this stuff?

simply because I ask for a certain type respect. Unfortunately the type of respect that I want doesn't appear magically, SOMEONE has to teach it. If you are taught to think you prove manhood by challenging another man, you're likely to challenge my requests for respect. For the most part that's how these situations go.

You should count up the 1000's of prickish white athletes that have camps and see how many articles you can find about them being assaulted.

In response to Reply # 30


  

          

these types of black folks are deeply committed to keeping our people exactly where we are in society.
they have zero interest in our culture evolving or learning to navigate society in a way that causes us LESS harm.

they keep a whataboutism in their back pocket

in their mind, any talk of culture means you’re a conservative or yt.

about Legs? yep. every word.

now Cam? i stated above that culture never crossed my mind.
i dont think its *only* culture. but discussing culture, specifically things we can improve to avoid situations, i dont shy away from.

Legs turns into a silverback when he sees our cultures reflection in the mirror. Fuck him and any nigga that thinks like him.

In response to Reply # 32


          

and then pivots to personal beef when I ask him about all these other Black QB’s who we never hear about getting attacked at camps.

No idea what happened in his personal altercation but “demanding respect” kinda plays into the culture they are criticizing.

it is not BLACK people who need to evolve. these "cultural" issues are not a pathology, it's a response to state sanctioned apartheid. there is a self hatred at play when an incident involving Black people is automatically a reflection on "the Culture." How many camps have been held and how many of them have had issues? Wouldn't quite call it a pandemic.

And considering we're talking about NFL players, who do a lot of criminal/civilly foul shit, how folks are to comport themselves is quite humorous.

and since you can't give any other examples you have to change it to a personal experience.

All this yapping about kids lacking respect and culture and its just 3 grown men fighting at a football camp.

sorry you got into it with someone else because you demanded respect but that aint got shit to do with this story.

The contentiousness of it. Your sassy swipe at my personal experience. We should be in a better place. Most of the people who come here are more similar than not but niggas are trained to go at each other.

In response to Reply # 50


          

I never called you out of your name.

disagreeing about a topic isn't going at each other.

Look who is doing most of the name calling in this thread. It's the guy who always blames Black culture.

Could it simply be that you got upset because I asked about other Black QB's experiences and you didn't have any other examples?

Cam deals with this more often because Cam talks shit. He likes to trash talk. I even pointed out how Cam had issues at his first pro bowl. Other players didn't like the way he carried himself. He refused to autograph things or take photos with HOF football players.

It's not culture, it's CAM NEWTON.

45. "Cam apologizes - good to see him own it. "
In response to Reply # 0


          

Cam Newton apologized for his role in a scuffle at a 7-on-7 youth football tournament over the weekend, saying "there's no excuse" for his actions.

Video from the Atlanta tournament surfaced Sunday that showed Newton being shoved by three people near the top of a set of steps before the pushing, shoving and grabbing moved toward a fence line. The video lasted less than 30 seconds before the altercation was broken up by a police officer and event security personnel.


Speaking about the incident on an episode of his YouTube show "4th and 1" that was published Friday, Newton said he "let my emotions get the best of me."

"It should not have been called for. Simple. And with that, I apologize to anybody affected," Newton said, naming event organizers, players and parents among those he was issuing his apology to.

Newton, the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft out of Auburn, did not appear to throw any punches in the video and seemed to be fending off three other people.

It was not clear what started the altercation. Newton did not directly explain that in his show, saying only that the situation "starts with words and it should have ended with words."

He also acknowledged that the scuffle could have gotten worse and that his involvement makes it harder for him to act as an example to younger players.

"I can't sit up there and say, 'Hey, bro, you got to be bigger than that,' and then all of a sudden I do that -- and that just goes to show you you've got to always stay in control of your emotions," he said.

Newton hasn't played in the NFL since 2021, when he spent a portion of the season with the Carolina Panthers, the same team that drafted him.

He has played 11 seasons in the NFL, throwing for more than 32,000 yards and 194 touchdowns. He also ran for 75 touchdowns during his time with the Panthers and New England Patriots.

Newton, who is from Atlanta, runs C1N, an organization founded in 2021 that focuses on developing young athletes' skills in football by providing opportunities to compete at the highest level through 7-on-7 tournaments and other events, according to Newton's website. His 15-and-under team won the championship at the event, according to a post by Newton on X.

now they should apologize to each other in person to each other and in front of the kids and parents since that's where the fight happened.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme
