Hey Cam It's Peter King...... Click

    Saw this tweet from Peter King:

    "Interesting but not too surprising: Just got stiffed at Panther camp by Cam Newton. Chose not to talk to me post-evening practice."

    Don't know why he would admit this unless he wanted to throw Newton under the bus to his 600,000 Twitter followers.

    Here's hoping that Newton reaches Favre / Manning / Brady status and King will have to kiss his ass.

    PK tweeted it to make Newton look like shit and is trying to shame the kid into an interview.

    Cam should have said he read PK's free agent predictions in SI and realized he doesn't know shit and didn't want to waste his time.

    Perhaps it's a reference to the "entertainer and icon" thing, when King basically set up the quote with his question, then tweeted it with little context, sparking a controversy about Newton as a player.

    Charlotte reporter noted over the weekend that Newton didn't sign some Auburn memorabilia for fans.

    Cam Newton, what a terrible guy. Won't make fans happy, won't make Peter King happy.

    This must be an offset for King since he does so much ass kissing of the elite QB's.

    actually, considering all the inane stuff peter tweets and puts in mmqb, this wasn't too bad. newton blowing off one of the nfl's most influential reporters is pretty interesting for many of those curious about cam. you're reaching for a zinger, boom.

    King's a little bit of a douche for tweeting that. As usual, making himself part of the story. Shocker. Someone blew off the almighty Peter King!!! OH NO!!!

    Do we even know if Newton blew off ONLY PK or all media that particular instance?

    I saw a tweet that said Cam was the last Panther to leave practice because he WAS signing autographs.

    Is inane tweet largely redundant?
  10. So you're saying Peter was trying to get an autograph?

    Cam Newton also walked by the media at the stadium in Charlotte the first day following the lockout with a cell phone glued to his ear, not willing to talk to the media.

    Peter King tends to deserve some of the criticism he receives on this board, but between blowing off the beat writers when he arrives at the stadium first day post-lockout and now King? If he's doing this now, how accountable is he going to be following a multi-INT game? Or one where he stinks and can't get the offense down the field for a potential game-winning drive in the last two minutes?

    For someone who aspires to be an "entertainer/icon," this has the potential to be a serious leadership problem - with both the media and with teammates he tries to talk to in the locker room.
