I love a good conspiracy theory and there are no better conspiracists than sports fans. But how do you explain what is really inexplicable: NFL referees missing at a minimum four helmet-to-helmet calls against Cam Newton.
Last night's NFL season opener between Denver and Carolina and the disregard for quarterback Cam Newton's brain health was a stark reminder of how far the NFL has to go in safeguarding players from the ramifications of concussions.
Cam's total disregard for racial inequality in America is a slap to the face to all the men and women fighting for racial equality. It would be a lie to say we aren't affected by race in present day America.
Right now, though, if he's going to dab, dance, and dish it out when he wins, he needs to own it when he loses. This situation is all the more frustrating given all the critics who will jump on Newton for anything little fault they can find.
