Tennessee Mom Upset with Cam Newton Celebration

The talk of sports world outside of the New England Patriots remaining undefeated, was Cam Newton dabbing on the Tennessee Titans

Cam’s celebration upset not only the Titans but also a mom who was in attendance with her 9-year old daughter, and she expressed her thoughts in an ‘Open Letter’ to Cam and sent it over to the Charlotte Observer

Dear Mr. Newton,

Congratulations on your win in Nashville today. Our team played well, but yours played better. Kudos to the Panthers organization.

That game happened to be my nine year old daughter’s first live NFL experience. … Because of where we sat, we had a close up view of your conduct in the fourth quarter. The chest puffs. The pelvic thrusts. The arrogant struts and the “in your face” taunting of both the Titans’ players and fans. We saw it all.

I refuse to believe you don’t realize you are a role model. You are paid millions of dollars every week to play hard and be a leader. In the off season you’re expected to make appearances, support charities, and inspire young kids to pursue your sport and all sports. With everything the NFL has gone through in recent years, I’m confident they have advised that you are, by virtue of your position and career choice, a role model.

My daughter sensed the change immediately – and started asking questions. Won’t he get in trouble for doing that? Is he trying to make people mad? Do you think he knows he looks like a spoiled brat?

I didn’t have great answers for her, and honestly, in an effort to minimize your negative impact and what was otherwise a really fun day, I redirected her attention to the cheerleaders and mascot.

I could tell she was still thinking about it as we boarded a shuttle back to our car. “I guess he doesn’t have kids or a Mom at home watching the game,” she added.

I don’t know about your family life Mr. Newton, but I think I’m safe in saying thousands of kids watch you every week. You have amazing talent and an incredible platform to be a role model for them. Unfortunately, what you modeled for them today was egotism, arrogance and poor sportsmanship.

Is that what your coaches and mentors modeled for you, Mr. Newton?

1st off what’s the deal with the Panther’s home town paper even giving this lady the spotlight to get at Cam like that? SMH, but I will get back to that in a moment.

Then what’s the deal with this mother writing about not knowing what to say to her daughter about Cam’s celebration???

GTFOH…

If you are having a hard time talking to your daughter about a football game and a player celebrating his accomplishments, what are you going to do when it’s time to talk about the ‘The Birds and the Bees’?

But let’s not get it twisted, this is about a woman and a child who are Titans’ fans and are upset their team lost. She doesn’t really care about sportsmanship. I have watched Titans’s game (I know sad) and there are plenty of defensive players gyrating after sacks. I may have missed something but I doubt there are Open Letters for those guys, hmmmmm….

Now getting back to the Charlotte Observer, what’s the deal? You have watched Cam play for 5 seasons, and watched this dude play hurt for your team and currently led your team to a 9-0 record. Defend your QB!!!

 

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

 

 

Republicans’ Open Letter to Iran, Not Cool but…..

Republicans’ Open Letter to Iran informing them that they can change any deal President Obama makes concerning the nuclear negotiations, was not cool but it’s not an act of treason!

Then Vice-President Joe Biden chimed in with the following

In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which Senators wrote directly to advise another country—much less a longtime foreign adversary

Really Joe, “thirty-six years”????

Wasn’t it 2007 when Representative Nancy Pelosi took a trip to Syria to sit down with Syrian President Bashar Assad? A trip that the Bush Administration advised against as they were in the middle of trying to punish Assad for Syria’s role in sending insurgents to Iraq.

Come on Joe, a bit of selective memory there.

While I believe Senator Tom Cotton’s Open Letter (signed by 46-Senate Republicans) was a bad idea and it shows the world how dysfunctional the US is right now. It doesn’t deserve the verbal bombs being thrown at Republicans lobbed by Liberals, relax.

If there is anything that Republicans’ like Cotton should be hammered for is that they have no plan on how to handle Iran except for regime change, aka US invading Iran.

It will not be enough to just bomb Iran’s nuclear sites as that will only delay and more than likely embolden the Iranians to move forward with nuclear. Let’s not put the cart before the horse and confirm the details of a possible deal, as the president stated; no deal is better than a bad deal.

Jay-Z’s ‘Open Letter’ Causes a Stir…

jayz

Jay-Z received criticism over a week ago from Republicans over his travel to Cuba to celebrate his 5 year wedding anniversary.  It was a silly complaint by Republicans as, the Obama Administration in 2012 eased the travel restrictions to Cuba with a policy known as “people-to-people” travel.  Jay had all his paperwork for this travel, but it was an opportunity for Repubs to take a distant shot at President Obama as Jay-Z has a good relationship with Obama and the White House.

In response to his critics Hov released ‘Open Letter’

Now you have the White House Press Corps making WAY too much out of the following lyrics….

Obama said “chill, you gonna get me impeached”.  But you don’t need this shit anyway, Chill with me on the beach… – Jay-Z

REALLY

Was there nothing else to talk about in the world?

SMH, it’s pretty sad that the White House Press Secretary has to even answer a question about Jay-Z and Beyoncé traveling to Cuba.  What’s next?  The White House commenting on Rick Ross and Mollys????

As always….
