OUTSTANDING JOB on everything you have done for our community! WDE A true asset to the Auburn FAMILY...Bravo!
Just wrote a new article Cam Newton and The Auburn Tigers Prove Ready For The SEC Championship Game http://t.co/yWGrAF3
Jimmy - you make me laugh...a lot. WDE!
An unsung hero in this entire affair really is Cam’s dad. That’s right, a hero. First of all, I don’t see the Newton family rolling in dough. And if they were, you know the media would show it. Take Reggie Bush’s parents for instance. They were living like royalty on the dole of an aspiring sport’s agent who all he wanted was to launch an agency of his own with Reggie as his first client. Bush’s dad jilted him -- quiet frankly, unfairly, and ungratefully -- and the house of cards collapsed. There’s practically little warranting a comparison between these two athletes’ stories other than that parents were involved. Cam as a younger man we all can see made some pretty unintelligent choices, choices that could’ve rendered his life dramatically different than we see it now. His athletic skill aside, Cam was fast flying down the road to Nowhere Land. There are scores of shipwrecked athletically talented youth whose prowess could not save them. So far as I can see, there hasn’t been dime one illegally sent to the Newton family from either MSU or Auburn. And certainly not from the junior college he attended in Texas or while at UF. So, at the core, in regards to profit, is a young man who fell no further. If you’ll look at the strong characters involved when times were toughest for Cam you’ll see a father and mother. A mother’s love to hold things together in the darkest hours is universally legendary, someone if you cross you do so in great peril. Then there’s Cam’s dad who hit the road with a son like damaged goods not to make him a star football player but to keep him from flaming out in the larger sense of life. Now all of a sudden of late in the same conversation about everything good – everything that makes us feel good – there is Kenny Rogers. The FBI will sort this one out. I’m a million times more interested in what was spoken between Cam and his dad after leaving UF and while serving time at the junior college than I am in a few filtered and parsed sentences between Mr. Newton and Kenny Rogers. Bravo, Mr. Newton! Thank you for rescuing your son and giving us something to feel good about.
