Ah…after the big game comes the press conference and well…who really wants to talk to a bunch of reporters asking repetitive questions following a loss?
Certainly not Cam Newtown, who plays the position of quarterback for the Carolina Panthers. Following their loss to the Denver Broncos during Super Bowl 50 Sunday night, after taking a few questions, Newton got up and walked out.
However, while headlines covered the press conference dismissal, the below image didn’t gain as much attention.

Well, Cam has finally addressed his critics and simply admitted that his actions were due him being a “sore loser.”
“Show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser,” he said in a Super Bowl post-game conference. “At the end of the day when you invest so much time and sacrifice so much and things don’t go as planned, I think emotions take over.”
