Cam Newton blasts critics: 'Show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser'
Cam Newton spoke to the media Tuesday about his Sunday press conference.
On Tuesday, Newton spoke (for the first time in his career during Panthers clean-out day) and spoke and responded aggressively to his critics, saying he is "my own person."
"I don't have to conform to anybody's wants for me. I'm not that guy," Newton said. "This is a great league with or without me. I am my own person."
Cam also flat-out said he's a sore loser, which is pretty hilarious.

Newton, as chronicled by Bill Voth of BlackAndBlueReview.com in video form, said people shouldn't be "quick to assume anything" about players on the Panthers.

Cam isn't worried about offending anyone either.

Newton's a different breed of athlete and not willing to fit into the neat little quarterback box. Tuesday's appearance should help calm people down over his press conference on Sunday, but who the hell knows with Cam, maybe the most polarizing athlete in sports.
He probably should've just said what he said Tuesday on Sunday but Cam's not really interested in what people think.
