Cam Newton

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft2011/news/story?id=6066772

what is really appalling is that they say he is ready footwork wise while running the shotgun at auburn in the SEC... its like they dont get the fact that the skill difference between the NFL and the NCAA is like pop warner to high school.. this stupid idiot father is looking for his lifetime million dollars... it sickens me that people breed (despite all the worlds major problems being spread from overpopulation) to make money off of their children... is the fact that god has blessed you with these beings not good enough? SIMPLY PATHETIC!!!

anyways i guess this wont matter as cam newton wont be much more than any other quaterback from the NFL... it seriously baffles me that scouts think this kid can compete with NFL competition and is sometimes compared to big ben in his ability to take hits or maneuver in the pocket.. i cannot stress this enough... DEFENSIVE LINES AND LINEBACKERS ARE THE BEST ATHELETES AT THEIR POSITION FOR A REASON.... defense is quite a bit harder than offense to be as skilled as most of these NFL players are..

again i must say this... this poor dudes father must be looking for his first paycheck... and its sad that he must ruin the ncaa to get it... its like these stupid people dont realize that skill and achievements mean more than money made in college or any lifetime... in the end money will mean absolutely nothing... nor should it EVER...

i dont mean to bring anything

i dont mean to bring anything into his personal life as to how he will be as a pro, but his father saying he is so good in footwork and snaps and such while playing in strictly a spread offense(shotgun) in the SEC is ridiculous, i personally think cam newton will be a decent level starter, not a pro bowl'er and not anything special... honestly i wish him all the best... but its sad this his family only sees money instead as personal achievements of mankind... and im trying to get that across in all sports... not just football..

Wow dude.. this is wrongly

Wow dude.. this is wrongly argued.. I bet if Cam Newton's dad would say "My son's footwork is horrible and he shouldn't be in the NFL because he won't be able to hang" EVERYBODY would hate him for saying that. But now he's saying something good and people are still gunna hate.

Haters gunna hate I guess.

i have no problem with cam

i have no problem with cam himself, i only have a problem with how his team (auburn), the NCAA, his family (especially his father), his manager (as of now, letting his father have ANY more say in how good his son will be... he obviously does not have credentials nor is he recognized by peers in his field)... so why should espn post this article? i guess im saying once again that espn is filled with crap writers and the american public needs something like this to feed their desire for college football

and toungue-out when will cam newtons dad downplay him??? thats the question... he will not...

and again, i must stress, that the main point of this post really was not to do anything with newton (he was merely an example), but the fact that poor parents of star collegiate atheletes will try to make money off of them as fast as they can, instead of recognizing their personal achievementes as compared to the history of mankind.

Nobody will ever downplay

Nobody will ever downplay their own son.. It's common sense.

Why are you trying to find

Why are you trying to find ANY reason to rip his dad? Okay, he made a mistake.. but holding professional work outs AFTER the season is over is nothing bad. He's trying to showcase his son's talents so he can move further in the NFL. Translate it however you want, but a father will NEVER say his son is bad.. A father will always say his son is great at whatever it is he's succeeding in.

^^^^ sorry man but a NCAA

^^^^

sorry man but a NCAA athelete is a STUDENT before he is an athelete... the fact that his father is holding PROFESSIONAL atheletic workouts for him during the school year (not even more than 3 weeks after the BCS national chamionship) is a big advantage for cam... not necessarily when other collegiate atheletes will get their draft workouts in.... is a HUGE advantage taken up by his father....

once again i must say what i said earlier..

So the fact that Mike

So the fact that Mike Conley's father is an agent is also unfair? Might as well bash on Mike Conley.

I would love to give my son the biggest advantage possible and if his father has the tools to do it, then why not? I don't see what's wrong? He isn't losing any lessons in his math class by going to the workouts, the guy is a great student regardless of what was going on while playing football.

completely different

completely different argument... mike conleys dad didnt try to make money off of greg oden's or conley's collegiate careers... that is not even comparable on the slightest level...

and if you didnt know, greg oden still attends ohio state and i believe he got an accounting degree...

im sure cromarti doesnt have one...

What does Cromartie have

What does Cromartie have anything to do with this? It seems like a lot of jealousy coming from you. Cam Newton's father messed up once, so anything he tries to do to help his son is all for something negative? You seem pretty jealous to me.

im sorry man, but you're

im sorry man, but you're saying im jealous of not being in the NFL??? the best 700 athletes on EARTH make it to the NFL. just like the best 300 basketball players on EARTH make it in the NBA.. theres no way im jealous.. i know i cant make it.. if you read my past few post quoting myself you would understand why im posting this.. ill quote myself saying the same thing once again i guess....

I'm sorry man, but Cam

I'm sorry man, but Cam Newton's father is trying to do anything to help his son move forward in his favorite sport.. I can't be negative towards that. Although, yes, he made a mistake.. but now we want to rip him for trying to showcase his son's talents? Like I said, I can't be negative towards that.

"the fact that poor parents of star collegiate atheletes will try to make money off of them as fast as they can, instead of recognizing their personal achievementes as compared to the history of mankind."

So now that I completely proved you wrong.. you tell me to refer back to the original post? We both went off topic man, no need to tell me to go back.

^^^ what you proved me

^^^

what you proved me wrong??? how?? what proof of ANYTHING did you provide?

my point of this original post (as stated earlier(four times already, this being the fifth) was that

"the fact that poor parents of star collegiate atheletes will try to make money off of them as fast as they can, instead of recognizing their personal achievementes as compared to the history of mankind." is wrong...

what is this last post... seriously dude ive been watching people post in this site a while, and your statements here bring your credibility down so much in my opinion man.. and know this... i give NOBODY a thumbs up or thumbs down...

if you seriously dont agree with what i was stating earlier you have no business posting anything anywhere...

EDIT: im gonna try to repost this when its not 5am... when people actually look at this site... and post the link to this... and the proof i provide comes (in tandem) with every heisman trophy winner that has gotten his award stripped from him...

I don't seem to understand

I don't seem to understand your first post.. All you did was rant about his father..

"this stupid idiot father is looking for his lifetime million dollars... it sickens me that people breed (despite all the worlds major problems being spread from overpopulation) to make money off of their children... is the fact that god has blessed you with these beings not good enough? SIMPLY PATHETIC!!!"

"again i must say this... this poor dudes father must be looking for his first paycheck... and its sad that he must ruin the ncaa to get it"

Getting personal brings down credibility.

You never really said anything important in your entire first post.

You are just ranting about what his father said.. it's no big deal that he believes his son is the best quarterback.. What's wrong with that?

Then if there is nothing

Then if there is nothing wrong with it... why post it and try to start controversy? Why did you completely rip his father if there's nothing wrong with it?

Ok, so now you're going to

Ok, so now you're going to make personal comments about me..

Isn't showcasing your son's talents to NFL professional scouts recognizing their personal achievements?

^^^^^ FINALLY an argument

^^^^^ FINALLY an argument RELATED to the point i was trying to make, your on the right path...

yes showcasing your son's talents WOULD be recognizing their personal achievements... but, in this case, at the expense of breaking all sorts of LAWS & RULES....

aside from everything both of

aside from everything both of us have just said... when these people are out of professional sports, how much money they made wont matter one bit.... what will matter is what they have achieved among their peers during their professional careers...

Regardless of his father

Regardless of his father doing stuff or not, does anyone really see him being a good QB? He is one of the most overrated prospects I have seen in a long time.
