After Cam Newton and The Carolina Panther’s loss against the Denver Broncos during Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 matchup, Newton has been at the center of controversy for what many think was his poor post-game behavior.
Only answering a handful of questions with short answers, Newton then left the news conference, which caused many to label the newly crowned MVP player with a bad sportsmanship title. The 26 year old quarterback Tuesday (February 9) reminded reporters he’s admitted to being a sore loser in the past, and is okay with the notion his actions may have offended a few.
Newton also admitted he didn’t want to talk to media at the time and doesn’t want to speak to media now but fully defends his actions after the game.
“I had a lot of time to go back and play everything back. I’m human. I never once said that I was perfect. I never proclaimed that I was perfect, but at the end of the day, people pick and do things of that sort.”
Cam remained steadfast in his position throughout, going as far as to challenge critics about his behavior.
“The truth of the matter is, who are you to say your way is right?” he said. “That’s what I don’t understand. We’ve got all these people condemning, and saying he shouldn’t have done this, that and the third. What makes your way right?”
