Cam Newton: Welcome to the NFL. This is Clay Matthews.

Greetings from the Frozen Tundra, friends!

Oh boy.  Last Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers was a thriller, and made this fan of the green and gold a wee bit nervous for about the first half. 

But it was after the game that I thought, "WHOA, NELLY!  What in the world is going on?"

You see, I wrote an article about the Packers' win. 

And in this article, I also wrote that Cam Newton was not being a good teammate due to his antisocial behavior (aka playing peek-a-boo with the camera by putting a towel over his face). 

And let me tell you, I came face to face with my football-related biases. 

Meaning, I became aware that not everyone feels the same way I do about certain football players. Such as my general dislike of Cam Newton, even though he is a good quarterback. 

Meanwhile, others will fight to the death for a certain player.  Duly noted.

I've had this discussion many times before with family and friends, as you have probably had as well.

"I don't like so-and-so as a quarterback." 


"I don't know.  I just don't like him." 

No further comment needed.

And, for some odd reason, in football, the mean girl comes out of me and I feel free to say, "Hey, he can win football games, but I'm still not a fan."  And that's okay!  We all do this, right?

With that being said, as a fan of the Green Bay Packers, here is a list of football players that you either love, or hate and some of the possible reasons behind it.
