Some Seattle Seahawks fans are NOT happy with Cam Newton. As the hunky quarterback prepares for the 2016 Super Bowl, hundreds of Seattle supporters have signed a petition to ban him from playing at their team’s stadium, Century Link Field, next season. Wait…what?
Cam Newton, 26, has ruffled some feathers in Seattle, Washington. Seahawks fans are apparently not thrilled with the Carolina Panthers quarterback’s lack of sportsmanship, and a crazy petition has been started, urging the NFL team not to allow Cam into Century Link Field when the teams play each other again next season. Is this totally insane, or does it make perfect sense?
Andrew Tilton started the Change.org petition, which addresses the Seahawks with this plea: “Ban Cam Newton From Century Link Field. He is one of the most unsportsmanlike quarterback in the NFL and deserves to be banned from Century Link Field. He dislikes Washington as a whole anyways, so why not move to make this possible.”
Cam has helped lead the Carolina Panthers to the 2016 Super Bowl, and part of that journey was defeating the Seahawks 31-24 in the divisional round of the playoffs on Jan. 17. So are the 600+ fans just bitter about their team’s loss? Not according to Andrew. “Cam Newton is one of the most unprofessional, unsportsmanlike individual on the face of the planet,” he added. “So I say for the 2016-2017 when the Panthers come to play in Seattle he should be banned from entering the stadium. This should teach him to put his arrogance in check!!”
The 26-year-old and his team crushed the Arizona Cardinals 49-15 in the NFC Conference Championship on Jan. 24, and will face off against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 on Feb. 7. Who do you think is going to win?!
What do you think of this petition, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree with the person who created it…or is it totally ridiculous?
