There has been a lot of talk about Cam Newton's Super Bowl Sunday, in particular his performance during the game and his attitude during the post-game interviews.
One of the sour parts of the day was the way Cam handled the post game press conference. Upset with the turnout of the game and the choice of questions from journalists, Cam decided to walk away from the podium and cut the media session short.
"I've been on record to say I'm a sore loser,'' Newton said Tuesday as players cleaned out their lockers. "Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser and I'm going to show you a loser. It's not a popularity contest. I'm here to win football games.''
"It happened,'' he said. "I didn't want to talk to the media at the time. The truth of the matter is I really still don't want to talk to the media. But at the end of the day, things have to happen.
"I had a lot of time to go back and play everything back. I'm human. I never once said that I was perfect. I never proclaimed that I was perfect, but at the end of the day, people pick and do things of that sort.''

Is Cam Newton a sore loser?

Does he need to address his point of view on how to handle the press?

Yeah my dad just wrote something about this lol. I think you both would like it @TylerDurso @christianmordi I think he's young, and he has a lot to learn. Peyton is a seasoned pro, but he had his moment with Drew Brees right? People get pissed. It's normal.
@tessstevens I agree, Peyton did have his sour moment.. a lot of players do. It's hard to remain composed in moments like that, especially when the press are asking questions to get you upset sometimes in the post game.
@mchylang I agree, I don't think he is a sore loser at all. He's a young guy and will handle these moments better down the line. I also think the press asks him questions that make him respond poorly
@evanyannetti I think his comments to the press and tweets wanted people to see his competitive spirit and drive.. a lot of these writers can relate or understand these moments because they have never played
