America women cam
In a statement, Rodrigue said Newton had not apologized to her following the conference.
Carolina Panthers spokesperson Steven Drummond told The Associated Press that Newton had talked with Rodrigue after the press conference and said the 28-year-old “expressed regret” for his patronizing remarks.Parker said she wanted to stand to honor America, a place she loves. Some people are talking out both sides of their mouth, Parker said. As I sat inside the Rams media room Wednesday, my second season covering the NFL after six years covering college football, MLB, the NBA, and just about every sport in between, video of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton came across my social media feed.“It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” Newton said, responding to a question from Charlotte-Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue.Newton smirked, chuckled and rolled his head back, “It’s funny,” he said again, before answering the question. For me, it’s not about my football knowledge being questioned: I’ll be fine.it’s funny.” The 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player twice told the assembled press that it was “funny” to hear a woman use the term before answering her question.“I don’t think it’s ‘funny’ to be a female and talk about routes. Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue asked Newton during Wednesday's news conference about wide receiver Devin Funchess embracing the physicality of routes and if Newton got enjoyment out of that.
-- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton laughed and made light of a female reporter who asked about one of his teammates, saying it was "funny to hear a female" ask the question.
And it’s not always easy — I spent an entire season asking Todd Gurley why he couldn’t run the football.
But Gurley showed up on Day 1 of training camp this season, “Hi Lindsey,” he said.“Hey Todd,” I replied. Maybe further down the road, Newton’s actions will prove he gets it.
After a year around the team Newton doesn’t even know Rodrigue’s name, she said. If you spend a year working in close proximity to someone, you learn their name.
It’s not just a player-versus-reporter thing, it’s called being-a-decent-human thing.
Parker, I heard, was one of the players who wanted to stand during the anthem.
