Former Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers forward Glen Davis told TMZ Sports Friday he thinks Cam Newton's controversial exchange with a Carolina Panthers beat writer was caused by "woman problems."
"I think he was sincere. I think he just made a mistake," Davis said of Newton's apology. "He's probably got woman problems or something."
When asked what more Newton could do to make amends, Davis offered up the following suggestion: "I think his clothing should express how he feels. I think he should wear some women's clothing."
On Thursday, Newton posted a video on Twitter apologizing after he responded to a question from the Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue by saying, "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes."
As part of his apology, Newton said his words were "extremely degrading and disrespectful to women" and "extremely unacceptable."
