I’ve been listening to sports talk radio in Charlotte(the Mac Attack this morning especially), and have heard more than one email/caller over the past few weeks state they are Carolina Panther fans yet, they “hope Cam Newton fails”. The reasoning behind it is, either he’s a bad guy (the incident with the laptop and his dad soliciting money, fake smile or fake in general, they know someone from Florida and he is a bad guy etc), or they didn’t like the pick.
Why would anyone wish Cam to fail? I doesn't make sense. If you are a fan of the team wouldn't you want your 1st round pick, the "QB of the future" to have success. Even if he is "fake", or he got money to play college ball, or whatever. What does that have to do with wishing that he's not successful for your team on the field? I'm interested in feedback.
