Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton Walks Out of Press Conference After Loss in #SB50 (VIDEO)

Not too classy.

At the Newark Star-Ledger, "WATCH: Panthers' Cam Newton refuses to answer questions, storms out after Super Bowl loss to Broncos":

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton just gave his critics all the ammunition they need.

Already under fire for how he conducts himself on the field, Newton went silent after his team's 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Super Bowl 50, sulking at the podium and essentially refusing to answer questions.

The press conference came to an abrupt ending when Newton got up and left, at the same time a Broncos player was overheard loudly saying how the Denver defense wanted to force Newton to throw the ball.

The press conference was very similar to the ones Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had during last year's Super Bowl, when he was clear in saying (by not saying anything) that he didn't want to be there...
Obviously, there's loads of commentary on this, and probably will be for a long time. Newton needs to grow up, and fast.

In any case, at the New York Post, "Cam Newton now must face a sickening reality ."
