Reaction to Peyton Manning allegations, Cam Newton press conference - NFL
Of course the writer has to put the whole racial spin on it....that card never gets old

yeah... this is a good reason to shrug off the story and act like it never happened.

if the writer didn't play that card you would surely be up in arms about Peytons sexual assault.

That card will never go away until they equally distribute how they portray NFL players in the media. And social media is the worst. It brought out all the racist Viewers

well, this is how the media makes their money.

I just wish people would look at the facts instead of screaming race card and ignoring the facts in the story.

The again, it's pretty hard to look at certain "sports heroes" under the microscope.

In the opening paragraph, he makes mention to Johnnie Manziel, then he goes on to mention the black community....one has nothing to do with the other, so why mix the 2?

they are all quarterbacks...

and it's about how the media portrays QB's..

but the main point is Peyton Manning sexually assaulted a woman in college and we never heard about it.

So who are you blaming for that? The public or the media or administration for not reporting the ALLEGED abuse?

If he wants to write about the Manning situation, hey, have at it....this isn't a black/white thing, why go there?

What is your source of info? Was he convicted? What info to you have that shows that he did actually sexually assaulted someone? I'm really not calling you a liar, I would just like to see if it really happened. But, while on the subject, I suggest that Newton will be in major trouble with the law in the next five years.

All you have to do is google. Sports Illustrated did a nice article on it. I also went to U of Tennessee for a year so I perk up anytime there is a scandal. This happened back in 1996.


lol at the Newton prediction. That is a good joke.

So you want to convict someone based on a Google Search and 2 sports magazine articles....seriously
Let's follow down this crazy line of thinking and let's ASSUME Peyton did something (it's a total reach, but let's go there)....Whatever Peyton did or didn't do, what does that have anything to do with how Cam acted at a press conference....that is like me asking you "what is 2+2"? And you answer "Tuesday", it makes no sense
