Cam Newton Deserves Your Respect

Before I get started, thanks to Enigma for reminding me I've got this platform to post my thoughts.


We are just over a week away from Super Bowl 50 between the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. The game features Peyton Manning, one of the game's old guard at QB who approaches strictly from an X's and O's standpoint and excels at a high level. Also featured is Cam Newton, one of the game's young, most explosive and charismatic athletes at QB.

Manning is my favorite QB ever, hands down. Say what you will about him being a regular season QB or pick on his playoff woes. In my opinion, Manning is the most intelligent player to ever step on a football field. If the Broncos win the Super Bowl, I will be happy for Peyton Manning above all, because this is a man, HGH accusations or not (come on, the guy has no neck left to lug that massive dome we call a head), who is the epitome of an icon.

However, I am pulling for Cam Newton and the Panthers. Cam Newton is not a POS douchebag. He's not a thug. He has fun. He shows that you can have fun playing the GAME of football. Is he arrogant? Absolutely. But you show me one NFL player who isn't arrogant, especially at QB, and I'll show you a career loser.

Furthermore, I'm disgusted by everyone telling me that Cam is arrogant and cocky and thinks he's a star, and praising Aaron Rodgers in the same breath. They're identical in their "outlandish" actions and celebrations. Does nobody remember the Discount Double Check? You know, motioning for the title like wrestlers and boxers do before they win it to show they have their sights set on the prize? And Aaron Rodgers cracks that "I'm better than everyone and I know it" smile all the time. And I don't hate Aaron Rodgers for it. He's my second favorite QB in the league, and I think he's the best one at it right now. My problem isn't with either QB. It's with the people who use Aaron Rodgers to justify their hate of Cam Newton.

Smile. Dance. Show off how talented you are. Do people REALLY want the NFL to be so level a playing field that every drive is literally a stalemate and we end every game in a 0-0 tie!? No. This is a competitive sport where the best and smartest athletes shine and make others look bad because they're just that good. Cam is one of those players. "Be humble" they tell him. No, Cam, don't be humble. Be exactly who you are. This world is passive enough, and nobody has tough enough skin to deal with anything. ONE TEAM will hoist the Lombardi trophy. The losers of the Super Bowl don't get to share in that honor. Yes, LOSERS.

If the Broncos win, I'm happy. If the Panthers win, I'm happy. But I'm pulling for Newton because he embodies what SPORT should be. He doesn't fight on the field (except with his own teammates in training camp). He doesn't spit on opponents. He doesn't do anything like Odell Beckham did by running 15 yards back on himself to target the head of a defenseless player. He doesn't do drugs and party all week like Johnny Manziel. He doesn't get 19 year old girls drunk at a bar and take them into a bathroom and force them to have sex with him while his offensive line stands outside the bathroom door making sure nobody walks in like Roethlisberger did. He's a class act who likes to smile, dance, and show off his God-given ability to play the game of football better than almost everyone else.

It's one thing to dislike a football player because he plays in your division and beats you twice a year to keep you out of the playoffs. It's another thing entirely to HATE a man because, well, he's not the white QB who does all those same things.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
