Praful, that my time is better spent doing something other than watching the game.  I was reading a book on business. 

One thing about all successful people, athletes included, is that practice and discipline is required to get there. We do not wake up into success ... we achieve it through hard work.

I don't know if it's just because I am in NC and everyone I know is a Panthers fan...but all over FB and Twitter (for my pages) is the news reports showing that there was another player talking bad about Cam in the press conference (you can clearly hear him) and that's why he walked out. There's also the pictures of Cam congratulating Peyton on the 50 yard line and smiling, so I don't think he was discourteous. I think he was upset he lost, which who wouldn't be? But enough about that!

What I learned (or was reminded) is that the media seems to have nothing better to do. Leave the boy alone and go back to concentrating on the things that are actually important. There seems to always have to be a good guy and a bad guy in everything, even if you have to make it up.

The public loves to jump on the bandwagon of the winner.  No one, or very few, predicted Denver to win before the game.  After the game, everyone seems to have picked them.

Don't interview a great talent like Cam Newton after a horrendous loss and expect anything but what you got.  He's a good man and great player.  Give him his due respect.
