Clay Matthews Doesn’t Like Cam Newton’s Celebrations

Clay Matthews

A lot is being made of the way Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton dances and celebrates on the field. A lot of people would have you believe that’s related to race.

It’s actually related to idiocy, i.e. a guy being a totally self-absorbed idiot, that he also lacks self awareness.

However, making it a race issue is the cool thing to do.

The fact of the matter is, Newton celebrates more often and longer than most guys. It’s his right to do so, but then he doesn’t get to act butt hurt or pull the race card when people criticize him for it.

What Cam Newton does or when he does it will never be of any consequence to us. He’s not our quarterback.

That won’t stop him from being a topic of discussion though. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was on Dan Patrick’s show on Friday and was asked what he thought of Newton.

He thinks the same thing we think. Cam Newton is an annoying child.

“Quarterbacks are allowed to celebrate. Our quarterback celebrates when he throws a touchdown, when he gets a big first down, when he moves it with his feet,” Matthews said. “I think at times, especially with the success they’ve had this year, when you spend seven seconds dabbing on your opponent, I can see how a defender might be a little annoyed with EVERY first down, celebrating. But the great thing about it, as long as you’re backing it up, then you can celebrate all you want.”

You can see the full interview with Matthews here.

He also has some funny thoughts on Aaron Rodgers’ wedding and engagement.

    he will get hurt sooner or later, especially when diving or reaching for the goal line…someone will take him out…he’s the next best thing, the greatest, except i thought they said that about Kap a couple of years ago…oh well, like he says, stop me..

    I think it’s funny. Could you imagine Rodger’s ripping a Viking banner down. Would be best part of our season

      If that would be the best part of our season, then the joke is on us.

    You know.. when I, you know, play football, you know, it’s really fun. You know?

    You can’t fat shame people anymore. Everyone is beautiful lol.

    How bout Rodger’s running back and forth on the sideline cheering the crowd on after we’re up 38-3 on the bears. I would love it. Or Harrison Smith in the engine because Rodger won’t stop doing a touchdown dance. Personally I would like that more than the touchdown. Matthews should talk he is the biggest showboat on the team. Did laugh my ads off when he told lap your no Russel Wilson bro.

    This seems pretty hypocritical, clay celebrates every sack with his rediculous little routine. What’s the result of that? He gets in adverts and makes extra money. Same with a-rod and his belt schtick and same with JJ watt and his little gimmick. You can’t get on cam for doing the same thing.

  8. PF4L January 31, 2016

    Most people celebrate sacks, hardly the same as what D-Bag Newton does. Same with Rodgers belt move he hasn’t done in forever, those took like 1-2 seconds. D-Bags douche act takes like almost 10 seconds of his “look at me” shit. that’s why people think he’s a douche.

    Then he says that the haters hate him because he’s black. So playing the race card makes him even a bigger douche. If that’s even possible.

    I hate cam for many other reasons besides just celebrating, but he is right. If you don’t like him celebrating, then stop him. It isn’t hard

    He sure can’t remember his bump and grind and other moves when he celebrates? The ol man is getting forgetful.

    So Cam celebrates with that move he does and then gives the ball to some small kid in the stands and everyone hates him.

    Funny thing is that Clay use to do the predator pose after sacking QBs and then did that stupid bump and grind back in 2013, and it’s ok. Aaron does that “double check” pose after throwing TDs and it’s okay.

    I’m no Panther fan by any means, but it sounds like a bunch of hypocrites / cry babies if you ask me. Everyone can celebrate, but Cam.

    I’m going to need Matthews to shit up. He should be the last person talking about this subject after we’ve had to endure that ridiculous predator pose and then the strip tease routine, which I am surprised more people didn’t get in a tizzy about that. At least Cam keeps his celebrations clean and he gives away footballs to the kids in the stadium. What does Matthews do?
