Numerous people have been critical of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and his celebrations this season. Some opposing fans have even gone as far as writing letters to newspaper in disgust.
Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon chimed in on the topic and can’t seem to understand what the problem is.
“That’s the thing I don’t understand. How come they just can’t let it go?” Moon said of Newton’s critics. “If he hasn’t done anything [recently] that’s been against the law or anything that would cause negative publicity, isn’t out in the world doing something wrong except for just dancing after a touchdown, I mean what is the big deal? He’s worked toward maturity in the last five or six years he’s been in the league and has done positive things to erase a lot of that negative stuff from when he was 18, 19 years old. I just don’t know why people can’t let all of that stuff go.
“You’d think he raped like five pastors’ daughters over the last five years and he’s getting away with it the way people are talking about him.”
I find it interesting that people are outraged over Newton’s dancing while players have been celebrating in every sports for a very long time now.
