MRL and Cam

Cam Newton has gone viral yet again! This time it’s for it’s all the wrong reasons. Cam was hosting his kids football camp when one of the campers called him out for being a free agent.

As you can imagine Cam didn’t handle it well… at first.

Cam posted a video of him talking to the young player one-one-one. Newton asked him about his school’s season, how he performed and repeatedly said that there was not problem between the two of them…

Athletes across football and other sports were disappointed a player attending Newton’s own camp would treat him with such disrespect. Newton was named MVP in 2015 and drafted No. 1 in 2011.

Lots of sports figures dropped their opinions too.

“With that being said, when I attend tournaments all across the country with my All-Star team, I have given my time, my energy, and my expertise to these kids coming into our program for over 11 years and that is not what people want to hear or even want to see. People want to see me arguing with another young man and to see me ‘get in my feelings.’ But the truth is this: I impact kids lives in a positive way. Make no mistake about it. I allow kids to realize there is an ‘out’ by using their football talents to get them to the next level and in most cases, out of the hood!

“So with that being said, have yourself an unbelievable rest of your day.”

We know Cam pretty well, he loves coaching and loves being around the kids. I feel bad for him!
