Cam Newton abruptly ends press conference, but are his antics showing his leadership skills?
Cam Newton is no stranger to conflict when it comes to the media and when he was asked about the offense's ability to make "big chunk plays", Newton answered with " Next Question?" and abruptly walked off.
The Panthers organization issued a statement:
“Cam didn’t intend to be discourteous toward any specific media member. In his mind after answering questions for nine minutes he had fulfilled his obligations.”
Newton ended his super bowl interview after being asked tough questions and he issued a public apology to for insensitive comments toward women who cover football. He has even gone as far as not speaking to the media (such as last week).
He has to find a way to interact with the media after a loss just as he does in a win POINT BLANK! Cam will make things tougher on himself if he can't answer the tough questions from the media because they will keep coming until they create controversy, so just learn to stand tall no matter what.
