Let me start by saying: Cam Newton is the MVP of the league, and in no way am I trying to take that away from him. That award was well deserved.
However… after prancing around and dabbing all season when things were going well, you have to exhibit a lot more class in defeat -- something Newton didn't do after the Panthers' Super Bowl loss on Sunday.

It's one thing to be hurting after losing the Super Bowl. I get that. But you just can't go in front of the media and act like a baby!
Yes, Newton could hear Broncos cornerback Chris Harris talking about the win during his interview. But come on, Cam. Showing up with your hood up and pouting like a baby doesn't make me feel sad for you; it makes you look like a classless, sore loser!
As the old saying goes: Winning shows some of your character; losing shows it all! And after watching him last night, I'd say Cam still has a lot of growing up to do.
