  • Just found this... Newton was supposed to be interviewed for the HBO Real Sports show that is going to be aired tonight... But Newton declined when HBO said they would not pay him for the interview... Sounds all to familiar... Cam and his team want to get paid for everything Cam does... Too bad... Would have been a good chance to get his side of the story out.

      My question is... why isn't HBO paying him???

      You'd figure the ratings for the show would more than make up for paying him.

        Maybe Cam refused the interview because the Real Sports episode is covering several previous Auburn athletes who are going on record as stating they were given monetary benefits by several SEC schools, including Auburn, to play football.

        You really are a pollyanna if you think ANY NFL player appears anywhere without receiving compensation, even on the radio.

        Just more in-house SEC BS.

        Notice where the link originated,from an Atlanta newspage (Dawgs hating, anyone??)

        Seriously, why would Cam associate himself with something that happened before he ever attended Auburn, or focus even more negative attention on one of the low points in his college career??

        'Hey Cam, this is HBO. Why don't you agree to come on camera with us and be interviewed for an hour like you're on trial?'

        Cam is being smart, IMO.
        First rule of being a future, unproven pro athlete; AVOID CONTROVERSY.

        The link said that money was an issue, allegedly, but not the only one, in explaining why Newton chose to decline.

        Duh.

            It doesn't have to be genuinely personal. It was unarguably over the top, and the whole write-up screamed of someone trying to get attention. Nolan is pretty legit, and maybe he's written some good, unbiased reports in his time... But to someone that has been following the draft religiously for 18 years, that article screams "HACK". The guy lost all credibility with that article. It's along the lines of something Florio would put up on PFT.

              thanks for my new sig quote... that is quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever read.

Maybe he'll be a bust in the NFL or maybe he'll be a player who can perform on the field despite off field drama, kind of like Roethlisberger. The comments in the article seem a little overboard. It says "continually invites trouble", but I don't know of any trouble he's gotten into recently. He got in legal trouble at UF, but I don't know of any legal problems since. It's not really known how much fault he has in the pay-for-play drama.
                He maybe didn't get in any "legal troubles" at Auburn because A) they covered is @ss, B) he wasn't there long.

                As for him being talented: sure he is. But there have been a lot of other great talented players who were drafted sky high, and flopped. At that level, a lot of times it's what's between the ears, and in the heart, that makes a difference.

                • Despite never meeting Newton, Nawrocki is sticking by his amatuer psychoanalysis

                  Nawrocki has never met Newton, stands by scouting report

                  Pro Football Weekly’s brutal scouting report on Auburn quarterback Cam Newton has been the hottest draft-related topic of the week. PFW draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki held a conference call on Wednesday, and PFT asked Nawrocki whether he’d spent any time with the 2010 Heisman winner before publishing the attack.

                  Nawrocki admitted he’s spent no time with Newton.

                  (That’s even less than top Newton supporter George Whitfield would’ve guessed.)

                  But Nawrocki “stands by” his evaluation.

                  “I feel very comfortable (with the scouting report),” Nawrocki said. “I stand by what was written. … I feel very strongly about what was written and stand by it fully.”

                  A comparison to Jimmy Clausen was made during the call. Nawrocki indicated that Clausen and Newton are similar in that they’re both “egotistical and disingenuous … scripted players with a sense of entitlement.”

                  Nawrocki says he’s heard the terms “fraud”, “narcissist”, and “con artist” mentioned when discussing Newton with scouts.

                  Instead of one-on-one time, Nawrocki attributed his scathing assessment of Newton’s character to “an enormous amount of research” in dealing with people in the league.

                  Said Nawrocki at one point on the call, “Three of the five decision makers I’ve spoken to in the last 24 hours expressed that Newton was disillusioned about his past.

                  “(And) anybody that does their homework and really digs hard will come away with a lot of the same conclusions.”

                  • Hey Scott...

                    So Jimmy Clausen is a franchise QB and every team that passed on him is an idiot. And you guarantee the team that picks Newton in the top 5 will regret it?

                    :P

                    • IMO Nawrocki is attempting to make a name for himself.
                      In a sense I guess he has, since 36 hours ago I had no idea who this guy was.

                      Well done, sir.

                        I don't think you will find too many scouts who were critical of Russell's natural abilities, Russell became a flop because he simply wouldn't work at his trade, unfortunately, something that is hard to judge in a young kid.
                        You give 60 million dollars to a lot of young players and some are simply going to live the life of luxury and won't care about being the best that they can be. Leinert is another perfect example, loads of natural talent but he would rather party than get ready for football, and you are going to flop with that attitude.
                        I just don't see it in Newton, if he flops it will be because he is too 'me' oriented like Terrell Owens, but it didn't stop Terrell from being a great player, just not the greatest team player.
                        And proud of it!!!

                          His description of Newton suggests to me that there is something in Newton's character that Nolan cannot stomach and the attack seems personal.
                          Of course, I don't pretend to know that his attack is personal, but I'm not used to seeing this kind of stuff thrown at a prospect. It is very strange to me.

                            Then if he is telling the truth, we can all expect Newton to go in round 2 or even round 3, because if his so called sources are reliable, then no team will touch Newton early in the draft.
                            I simply don't believe the man and now that he has been put on the spot, he's looking for a way out.
                            Newton will likely be gone by the 5th pick in the draft which will completely discredit Nolan and I doubt he keeps his job.

                                I don't know if he is a hack, he probably is pretty good most of the time, but it appears to me that he over stepped his bounds and when questioned on it, he came up with a lame excuse instead of just saying he stands by everything he said, and it now makes him look bad.
