Kids have no respect for anything today. I also keep hearing about Deion Sanders who took a coaching job at a small college in Mississippi. He’s already had both his office and truck broken into and had sentimental items taken. And they’re right, these are players that don’t have to be there. I feel like this culture or even cancel culture, all this is going to catch up to us with a vengeance and these kids will be running the world, writing bills and passing laws.

S.A.S. Even though the show is about disagreement between you and Max, there is a time to just agree. Period! This was one of those times. Max is right on everything he said. And that kid's apology sounded scripted. As a kid, how astute is he to frame his words so eloquently. And, his name while all over the web?? What difference would it be to expose him on First Take as well? Wrong, again, Stephen A. This attack on Cam came from if not his parent ( father ) or, perhaps an uncle. Aaaand, Cam, if he's smart, aint never going to be poor again. That's what he should have said to this kid. Followed up with, " how wealthy are you going to become in your lifetime? ". Cam was just caught off guard. I would have trounced him verbally.

I seriously believe he was paid to diss Can. Cam made real enemies with the Superman bit, you have no ideal. Respect for Belichek for signing Cam. Brady had what Cam couldn't get; a first rate offensive line.

This is trash talk not disrespect....CAM even said he didn't feel disrespected and told the Kid's Coach to let him be.🤷
T.M Acum 2 Zile
No, he should be shamed with his silly behind...he's getting a crash course in free speech coupled with consequences....that kid is definitely a menace at home to his parents. For him to go out of his way to disrespect an expert in the field he's trying to get into shows he hasn't been taught to respect his elders or anything else....I hope he learns a valuable lesson.... sometimes it's best to stay quiet if you don't have anything of substance to say

The kid should be thankful that a professional is even taking the time out to provide a training camp. Cam Newton didn’t have to be there sharing his expertise with him. Kids are so ungrateful these days and wonder why no one want to take time to teach them anything smh.

You can be raised by a single mother, taught better and still act this way. Many children do things to impress their peers and friends. It isn't always a reflection of their parent(s) raising.

Obviously he doesn’t have any parents at home, and if they do exist they allow them to have feelings, I was born in 1990 and I never was asked until I was sick how I felt? I knew my parents loved me but how I felt really didn’t matter because I was a kid. This is the environment that is set with you new parents asking your children how they feel...

I agree on both sides. That kid was ignorant and should’ve been ashamed of himself. This also shows that people whether it’s from sports commentators, teens, or even adults need to show a lot of respect to Cam Newton.

Gridiron (american football) is a violent sport, sort of, they have pads, but there are more violent sports. Australian Rules Football is more violent than american football, rugby is more violent, they don't wear any sort of padding in rugby or the AFL, and ice hockey is far more violent than american football, in hockey a bare knuckle fist fight is part of the game. Mixed martial arts (UFC), also more violent, there are about a hundred sports more violent than american queefball.

You aint got it, and never will.

Mr. Newton understandably lost cool with a very disrespectful kid. To be a Black man & use your wealth and privilege to help others, then to be disrespected by your own people is very painful. This kid is very immature, rude and selfish. What a brat! His parents ought to be ashamed of him and themselves.

Too quick to accuse, too quick to judge, too quick to condemn! Thank you Apple. Thank you Google. Thank you Facebook. And Eff you Twitter. As for you, that accuses, judges, and condemns while knowing you are guilty of the same desires, thoughts, and actions; you are the worst of all.
I have been teaching for over 20 years. The first mistake I found in the apology was the young man calling Cam Newton, Cam Newton. Where is the respect for your elders? He would do better for himself referring to him as Mr. Newton being that they are not on familiar social terms and Cam Newton is his elder. I find many youth today very willing to make us "equals". With age comes wisdom. Notice how they make excuses for the young man due to his age. This emphasizes the point that there is a difference. You can't make everyone be on the same level and then talk about how some aren't fully developed yet. Fully developed and not fully developed are clearly different. Embrace the differences and move forward.
