“I was shaking and sweating. There were tears in my eyes. It was really weird. Here was this Heisman Trophy winner, giving me a ball that he scored with.”

—Law Waddill, 10, of Raleigh, N.C., the first young fan Cam Newton handed a ball to after scoring a touchdown in an NFL game, from a terrific story in Sunday’s Charlotte Observer.

awesome. Not all professionals are scum. They just seem to get the bulk of media attention. There aught to be a rule. If you run a story about a player being a jerk you must go out and find 2 stories about players who are helping. naw will never happen.

True Wayne, sadly true.
It seems the BAD guys get most of the press, while the good ones get very little.

I guess the bad stories sell more.

And that is really weird because if you ask people most of them will say they would rather read the stories about the good guys. Either we are lying or the writers aren't listening (or maybe they just aren't asking)

Still, its the negative that gets the attention. Whether its a tragic news headline or a story about a hoodlum ball player or a negative post in a forum such as this. They will all get more play than their positive counterparts.

If I start a thread entitled "Yeah Packers" and fill it with all the things I think are good about the Packers one of two things will happen. It will get three replies agreeing with me or other people adding their positive comments and then it will die or it will get turned into a Ted Thompson sucks or the defense sucks or everything sucks type thread. If I make a "Boo Packers" thread and fill it with hate and negativity it will go on for pages and pages. The most interesting thing is that there will be tons of positive posts in the negative thread that never would appear in the positive one. I guess its the argument and controversy that everyone loves.


Anyway good for Cam. I'm going to go see if I can find the entire article.
