Taking the Fun Out of the Game for Cam Newton

1 Nov 2016 /

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said Sunday that he plans to take his grievance with no-calls on late hits to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

“It’s really taking the fun out of the game for me — honestly, it really is,” Newton said. “At times, I don’t even feel safe. Enough is enough. I plan on talking to commissioner Goodell about this. It’s not fun, and I don’t know what I have to do.”

I can’t imagine why this is happening to a fun guy like Cam Newton . . .

No, wait — yes I can! Because he goes out of his way to show up opponents and it’s not surprising that the opponents have started to push the envelope as far as what constitutes a legal hit on this guy.

    Too bad Cam Newton will never have the pleasure of getting up close and personal with an opposing linebacker like Sam Huff in the game as it was played in the 1960s.

    Likewise, given today’s rules, it is doubtful that Newton will ever suffer the bloodied and humbled fate of Y. A. Tittle as famously depicted by Morris Berman in his iconic Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photo. Neither is Newton likely to fall victim to a career ending tackle like Lawrence Taylor delivered to Joe Theismann over two decades later on Monday Night Football.
