Is Cam Newton the Sorest of Sore Losers? [VIDEO, POLL]
Cam Newton haters now have a whole new piece of evidence to claim why they don’t like him.
The Carolina Panthers was terse and moody before he walked out of his postgame press conference following his team’s 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.
On one hand, you certainly can’t blame Newton for not wanting to talk. The Broncos D smothered him all night and sacked him six times. He finished only 18 of 41 for 265 yards and never got into any sort of rhythm, a stark contrast from the form that helped him win MVP honors this season.
On the other hand, speaking to the media is a part of the job, even after suffering the toughest loss in your career on the grandest stage.

If you’re looking a more in-depth transcript, look no further than here.
As for what exactly precipitated Newton’s decision to cut short the press conference, you may be able to discern Broncos cornerback Chris Harris in the background saying, “We knew he couldn’t throw on us.”
Of course, Newton isn’t the only one whose behavior should come under scrutiny. Von Miller, the Broncos linebacker who garnered game MVP honors, took to Instagram to taunt the Panthers with the “crying Jordan” head in a Panthers photo. Ouch.
