Cam Newton, His Dad and Their Disaster

Cam Newton is head and shoulders above everyone else.

Anyone who knows me knows knows that I’m a huge sports fan—college football in particular. This season has been an especially exciting one thanks in part to one player’s extraordinary play.

Sadly, a story which surrounds that very athlete has put the season in jeopardy. At least it has for me it has. The player is Cam Newton, and at the center of his story is a man who should be keeping his son out of these types of situations rather than dragging him into them.

That man is his dad. I wrote about my take on the allegations involving Cecil Newton over at Babble. It’s one of the better pieces I’ve written for them. I hope you’ll check it out by visiting Babble.

About john cave osborne

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    Great article over there Jco. It is a true shame that his dad would try to profit from his recruitment thus jeopardizing his chances at such an honor.

    Love the article… we’ve been following it daily and it makes me sick. As an Auburn alum and as a football fan, I hate to see this happen to anyone or any university, but especially to Auburn during a great season with great players. I’m praying that Cam and Auburn come out clean, but his dad has been exposed for what he is…
    War Eagle!

    I don’t feel sorry for these people at all–they tried to cheat. Let the team and the family suffer humiliation, fines, sanctions and the like as a result.
