Cam Newton: If you don’t like my dancing, don’t let me score

Getty Images

After Panthers quarterback Cam Newton scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s victory over the Titans, he poured some salt in Tennessee’s wounds with an elaborate dance in the end zone.

Newton’s moves were not met with much joy from Titans linebackers Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard, who stepped up to Newton to let him know they weren’t pleased. Other players got in between them and things quieted down for the rest of the 27-10 Carolina win. After the game, Newton gave the Titans a suggestion about how they could avoid feeling sore in the future.

“I heard somebody say we aren’t going to allow you to do that, but if you don’t want me to do it, then don’t let me in,” Newton said, via Terry McCormick of Titans Insider. “I just like doing it. It’s not to be boastful. From the crowd’s response, they like seeing it. … No disrespect to anybody, it’s just a Panthers thing.”

Coach Mike Mularkey said, via Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, that he thought Newton was guilty of taunting and Williamson said “personally I don’t go for that stuff.” Williamson’s answer is worthy of a good-sized chuckle after catching his own extensive post-play celebration from earlier in the game, which may well have been titled “Glass Houses and Stones” based on his reaction to Newton.

    Remember when QBs were actually grown up men?

  2. beastnyg says: Nov 15, 2015 7:05 PM

    Titans were doing celebrations after every sack and giving him something extra after every play. He paid them back. They mad.

  3. thegreatgabbert says: Nov 15, 2015 7:06 PM

    Donkey Grimace Newton. Is there a more despised player in the league?

  4. jvw1982 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:07 PM

    Keep having fun Cam……

  5. negadelphianinjersey says: Nov 15, 2015 7:08 PM

    The taunting doesn’t bother me. But don’t back and hide behind the refs and do it.

  6. orivar says: Nov 15, 2015 7:08 PM

    Just a sore loser being sore.

  7. ausernamethatisavailable says: Nov 15, 2015 7:10 PM

    The panthers. The worst 9-0 team in nfl history. They are a good team but they are not a great team. I can’t see them in the super bowl.

  8. rcampore says: Nov 15, 2015 7:11 PM

    a bunch of whiners….I remember a time when there was a performance show in the endzone and I loved it! If you don’t want to see that stuff, like Newton said, don’t let them in the endzone. Here let me call a whambulance for you.

  9. yyc2phx says: Nov 15, 2015 7:17 PM

    Exactly… I don’t like it but there’s only on way to stop it

  10. connfyoozed says: Nov 15, 2015 7:20 PM

    I can’t stand Cam… but he’s right. As far as I am concerned, if you score a TD, you should be able to celebrate however you want to celebrate.

  11. hodaghunter says: Nov 15, 2015 7:26 PM

    All the sudden the Panthers are winning and forgetting they have been terrible for so long… Stay humble and don’t make yourself a target

  12. carolinafanno1 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:28 PM

    Winners gonna win, haters gonna hate!

  13. qdog112 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:29 PM

    File it under: Cry me a freakin’ river!

    Once again Cam is right. 9-0 baby!

    Keep Pounding!

  14. volum12 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:29 PM

    When you go into the end zone, act like you’ve been there before. Definitely not one of the league’s class players.

  15. jjfootball says: Nov 15, 2015 7:36 PM

    Don’t care about dancing, its you I don’t like!

  16. titansfan12 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:42 PM

    At some point, have some class Cam. Be a grown man, hand the football over and take your six points

  17. whodat5150 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:43 PM

    Folks are trying to judge Carolina by last year’s losing record that got them into the playoffs. Their D started off slow last year but did play better in the last few games. Carolina has had a good D practically since the time Ron Rivera got there. And yes, Cam is right, if you don’t want ANY player to showboat, stop them on the field of play!

  18. Wisconsin77 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:49 PM

    This guy is quickly becoming the most annoying players in the NFL.

  19. jaro6771 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:51 PM

    Also his response when he stole a laptop and threw it out the window when police raided

  20. beastmode5150 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:57 PM

    The rest of the NFC LOVES the fact that they only have to play at Carolina for a chance to go to the super bowl.

  21. mungman69 says: Nov 15, 2015 7:59 PM

    Green Bay loses AGAIN, Arizona or Seattle? They iffy? The Cowboys? No, Carolina is the best in the NFC and a hell of a lot better than people give them credit for🎩

  22. joetoronto says: Nov 15, 2015 8:02 PM

    Anybody who truly believes this stooge is going to bring you where you want to go is really delusional.

  23. thisguy124 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:04 PM

    Like he said, you don’t like him celebrating in the endzone, don’t let him get in it. You didn’t so DEAL WITH IT!

  24. carolinafanno1 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:06 PM

    You hate SuperCam because he doesn’t play on your team!

  25. playsanity says: Nov 15, 2015 8:08 PM

    This comments are hilarious.

    1. Carolina was 12-4 two years ago, and were very banged up last year yet still won a playoff game. so no they have not been terrible for a long time.

    2. Cam does show class on every TD as he hands it to a child every single time, and I don’t see a single other player/team doing that.

  26. mackcarrington says: Nov 15, 2015 8:09 PM

    Newton doesn’t think dancing in the faces of opposing players is “disrespectful”, but he thinks someone hanging a banner in his stadium is.

  27. joker65 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:09 PM

    I guess Titans fans should chastise every one of their players who ever celebrates a td. All Titans should just hand the ball to ref after scoring a td…….

  28. Ferdinand says: Nov 15, 2015 8:17 PM

    Cam Newton is the James Franco of football – talented but so completely in love with himself you can’t stand to watch him.

  29. bamabrad1970 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:19 PM

    Has there ever been an elite QB that acted like this clown?

  30. thisguy124 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:19 PM

    At some point, have some class Cam. Be a grown man, hand the football over and take your six points
    He does hand the ball over. He hands it to some kid that will remember and cherish that moment for the rest of his life. Oh I forgot, that doesn’t fit your narrative.

  31. carolinafanno1 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:21 PM

    Be the best team on the field on Sunday, Keep Pounding! 9-0!

  32. amaf21 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:35 PM

    That’s nothing. That stupid dance McNabb used to do was the worst. Glad to see that turd out of the league.

  33. TheWizard says: Nov 15, 2015 8:40 PM

    Acting like a clown.

    Wouldn’t be my choice, but opinions vary.

  34. jimthebuilder27 says: Nov 15, 2015 8:46 PM

    Hey Cam, there is a such thing as good sportsmanship, and apparently you’re a pretty poor winner!

  35. skinsprinting says: Nov 15, 2015 8:59 PM

    Such a Diva !

  36. realqc says: Nov 15, 2015 9:17 PM

    It’s funny how much the Cam and Panthers haters sound like big tools. 13-0 regular season streak, Cam.Newton looks unstoppable, beating most teams by double digits. This Panthers roster is full of good human beings who LOVE PLAYING THE GAME.

    Keep hating, they’ll just keep winning.

  37. wormworth says: Nov 15, 2015 9:23 PM

    Cam is anonymous haters have no credit lol.

    -Panther fan

  38. ragnarthemagnificent says: Nov 15, 2015 9:28 PM

    Yup. Vikes fan here. Haters better stop hatin’ on the Panthers! Great team, great coach, clean players, winning. If you don’t like it, stop him, it’s that simple.

  39. wrlegrand says: Nov 15, 2015 9:33 PM

    Yeah Cam just act like you don’t care and are not enjoying winning…

    …that makes a lot of since right people? I mean seriously…

  40. vjllsduckfan65 says: Nov 15, 2015 11:54 PM

    Interesting even Rivera said he needs to be more mindful that he’s in someone elses’s stadium & be respectful. I’ll bet the same ppl on here defending him would be griping if someone did that in their house!

  41. jframe78 says: Nov 16, 2015 12:12 AM

    It’s funny ppl looking for any reason to hate on cam…”Oh he celebrates too much” “he has too much fun out there, why can’t he be a robot” cam is fun to watch. Cam and the Panthers are 9-0 and yall can SUCK IT!!

  42. bullethead527 says: Nov 16, 2015 12:13 AM

    He has been doing this for 5 years, when you score almost 40 rushing td’s as a qb , if you haven’t watched cam newton highlights then you would not know , cam had his back to the players , when they got all pissy , he did it again and again, if they would have just went to the sideline , after cam was done, he would have done what he has done every time he scores a rushing , give z kid the ball after he does super man or his dance…

    Titans players we’re celebrating 1st Dowbs, the lonely td they got, after every sack or tackle , they just mad , they thought they were better then us and would beat us,

  43. steelerssam says: Nov 16, 2015 12:28 AM


    That’s exactly the point. They haven’t been there before.

    And stick your regular season records. Who you trying to be, Andy Dalton?

    (Did anyone else notice it was like the same 3 panther fans commenting back? People in this town are a joke)

  44. junkmtb says: Nov 16, 2015 8:16 AM

    He’s suppose to score a TD being undefeated, walk to the sidelines put the towel on his head and sulk!!!!
    Apparently that’s what the haters want to see! #dumb!!!

  45. virgiltab says: Nov 16, 2015 8:58 AM

    Cam is doing nothing different than the any defensive LB, DE DL after making a big play on the QB. They all Celebrate. He is doing nothing different than a WR or RB who scores. People need to get over it. Cam is a football player just like the others and if he wants to celebrate, let him.

    It always is going to fall back to “Haters Gonna Hate!!”

    And to the Haters, you sound pretty pathetic with your argument(s). Whats next????, You find out he eats lucky charms and you’ll figure out how to spin that to hate on him too!!!

    Let the man play his type of Football. I bet ya if he was your teams QB and your team was 9-0, you wouldn’t be cryin like this

  46. sicx01 says: Nov 16, 2015 10:06 AM

    Hey Cam, remember Ronda Rousey!!!!!

    Rise with grace and your fall won’t be as hard.

  47. jason9696 says: Nov 16, 2015 10:49 AM

    He has a point it was a great dance. I liked the one done by the Cardinals backup QB last night a little bit better though. That was hilarious.

  48. renocarolina says: Nov 16, 2015 11:27 AM

    Obviously Cam has to develop a more respectful dance like the “discount double check” or the “elbow kiss”.

    titans were chippy and chirpy all game and played great just before the half and just after … but couldn’t hang with best team in the NFC.

  49. striggz says: Nov 16, 2015 12:02 PM

    Don’t sweat it Cam. You dance it’s not classy, Johnny Football celebrates and he’s just a good ol boy having fun. I wonder why?

  50. jgedgar70 says: Nov 16, 2015 12:24 PM

    Cam Hate continues.

    I kept expecting the Titans defenders to tear their ACLs up with their sack dances. Then Cam dances after a TD and they want to scrap. Hypocrites.

    As for all the hatred for Cam’s celebrations – more hypocrisy. If your favorite team’s QB was doing it, you would have no problem with it.

  51. goldcoast1554 says: Nov 16, 2015 1:58 PM

    Lived in Charlotte. Kid has a massive ego. The NFL was all about ‘his’ Brand. Hard to like this guy…even when winning.

    Just about all NFL QB’s are arrogant and have Massive Ego’s. Name me one QB that is anybody that is truly humble and doesn’t have an ego that has done anything in the NFL?

  53. vikingjack73 says: Nov 16, 2015 4:47 PM

    Cam can celebrate without acting like a petulant child
    Spike the ball, do your Superman shtick
    But dance for nearly a minute??

    Act like you’ve been there before Cam
    Or better yet, actually win a MEANINGFUL NFL game, get your team to a Conference title game/Super Bowl, then you can act like a fool!

  54. alaskazz says: Nov 16, 2015 5:10 PM

    Frankly, the Cam haters need to get over it. The dude has been in Charlotte 5 years and is an absolute model citizen. I am a die hard Panthers fan and wasn’t particularly excited when we drafted him but how in the world anyone couldn’t praise the guy now is beyond me. Never complains, stays out of trouble, does tons of stuff with kids on the field and throughout the year. This guy is the real deal.

  55. jusanewuhcount says: Nov 16, 2015 9:13 PM

    If you can dish you better be able to take it. So when the shoe is on the other foot, Cam should just go to the bench and put his rag over his face. What goes around comes around.

  56. fluffy19 says: Nov 17, 2015 10:57 AM

    Not a panthers fan but boy i am shocked by the cam hate on here. There are plenty of rules regarding the celebrations in the nfl now and he’s not breaking them. He gives the ball to kids. The titans went out of their way to get in his face, not vice versa. And to all the closet racist or just plain haters out there talking about a laptop, let’s all judge you on the dumbest thing you did as a teenager and see where you stand. As my loyalties go, i don’t like aaron rodgers, but if he scores on my team, he can put on his championship belt, or discount double check, or lamblow leap all he wants. People need to find something better to worry about. My hunch is a lot of these complainers also feel like the world is too pc and people get offended too easily. Well, pot – kettle.

  57. silvernblacksabbath says: Nov 27, 2015 2:47 PM

    Choreographed dances= diva. Can’t wait to see the towel over his head in the playoffs…
