CHEATER: Auburn’s Cameron Newton

REPORT: Auburn’s Cameron Newton cheated at Florida

All those Auburn fans standing with Cameron Newton might reconsider as new details emerge about Auburn’s quarterback. Tonight it was revealed that the quarterback had problems at Florida beyond laptops.

According to Fox Sports, “Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton had three different instances of academic cheating while attending the University of Florida and faced potential expulsion from the university, according to a source.”

And what did Newton’s pastor father tell Fox?

“I wasn’t there,” the elder Newton said. “I cannot confirm or deny. At a time like this, I’m taking a defensive posture.”

However, the Fox Sports article throws new light on how honest the family might be. According to the report, “Last month, Newton, and his father, a pastor, told Sports Illustrated that the younger Newton decided to transfer from Florida in early January 2009 when Tim Tebow opted to remain for his senior year, a move that would have forced Newton into back-up status for another season. Newton, however, wasn’t even enrolled at Florida for the spring semester of 2009 when he decided to transfer, according to the source.”

Yikes. Talk about a fabrication. If the Newton’s distort something like this what about something serious like agents and eligibility? There is no doubt this is an important new revelation about the reliability of what the family has to say.

    The fact of the matter is what football player or athlete hasn’t cheated. Whether that be on a test or other academic aspects. The only reason this is being brought up is because of his popularity, his skills that seem to be just historic and (I hate to say it) his race. Whatever or whoever is trying to bring forth anything they can to destroy this man’s dream of becoming a great football player. I find it to be quite ridiculous. Now I’m not saying that I support nor do I approve of anyone in a place of higher learning to cheat yet it happens. We have all in one form or another cheated. Possibly some of this information may be true. As for now why should this of all things stop him from possibly getting the Heisman? Or to overshadow a school and a player’s talents. What the hell does Florida have anything to do with today? The boy went to a Community College to then transfer, give the guy a break. Rest assure that if this was the other way around this wouldn’t be as big of a deal.

    Not sure I believe anything Thayer/Fox Sports has to say. He’s already showed just how biased and unprofessional he is with his demand voters not give Newton the Heisman. So much for proof!

    Gabrielle,

    You state: “The fact of the matter is what football player or athlete hasn’t cheated.” As an ex-football player find this an appalling conviction. I did not cheat, nor did the players I knew. Next you pull the race card? No one is trying to destroy the man’s dream of becoming a great football player. He already is and maybe it is time to see if he is good enough for the NFL.

    It may be time for Cameron Newton to show he is more than a great football player and become a solid citizen. Stop stealing laptop’s, start studying and playing by the rules. Why should anyone get a break when they break the rules and the law?

    WOW! Now I know and even admit the “timing” is a little weird, but you can’t deny the fact that this story could of been broke in week 4-6 and still had the same impact the way he was playing so don’t play that bullsh|t excuse — the truth will come out in the end — it may take years like the USC fiasco with Reggie Bush — but in the end — whatever is accomplished this season is null and void. That’s what’s enjoyable about all of it. 🙂

    Well, well… Its amazing that a story like this would be covered on a BAMA website. Not every athlete cheats, but the reality is a lot of them do. And I’m not saying he did. There is a lot of stuff that goes on in college sports, football especially, that Cam Newton is taking all the heat for. So many athletes fly under the radar and it never comes out. Don’t trash somebody’s name and reputation over speculations and no proof. But, because of Newton’s popularity, people seem to want to tear him down. I’m finding it REAL funny that more and more allegedly keeps coming up the closer and closer it gets to the Iron Bowl. I just think people are trying to throw Cam off his game. Nobody likes a sore loser.

    ITK….I know you are gonna beat this story into the ground, true or not.

    Without paying Cecil $200K, your team would suck donkey balls and have about 5 losses.

    You were mocking us the other day about how there were no more details coming out and there wouldn’t be anything else. Well, looky what we have here.

    Just more proof that the smoke you see rising from Lee County right now is nursing one heck of a fire.

    And we’ve only just begun. Burn baby burn.

    DC….whatever. Would , could, should, might, if, and, but…….We are 10-0. You only show your bitternes when you make remarks like that. Auburn is on top, you ain’t. Call me Bahgdad Bob…whatever. Facts of the matter are, Cam as of now, is eligable per NCAA…As of now Auburn has not recieved a letter of inquery from the MCAA. I know that you are hoping beyond hope that we get a call between now and the 26th from the NCAA saying that Cam is not eligable simply because you KNOW what will happen if we don’t get that call.

    Auburn is going to stomp Alabama in your own house.

    ITK….You are borderline slanderous…I am not saying that Newton didn’t do anything…But, nothing has been proven. Kenny Rogers says that he doesn’t know what Bond is talking about. Yeah , he could be lying…But so could Bond. As far as the crap that supposedly happened in Florida…Who knows ? It could be true. But, it would not affect his eligability. I truly believe that the time Cam spent at Blinn matured him a good bit.

    hey Baghdad Bob.
    Lets see.
    Auburn names a field after a known cheater like Pat Dye.
    I wonder why Auburn fans have no credibility?

    Above being an extraordinary football player and a Heisman candidate, Cameron Newton is human!! If any of the ALLEGATIONS, that have yet to supported by FACTS, against him are true then let the chips fall where they may. The timing does suck and you have to wonder if their are forces working behind the scene to “counter” all of the positive publicity he has received! You would think that society would enjoy seeing a young BLACK man (yes I said it), who had made mistakes, overcome adversity. The media (particularly FOX News) seems to think they are in a position to judge this young man. I think not.

    I kind of hate this for Cam. On top of all this media stuff he has that sore knee hampering him a little as well.

    Fun to hear Al Delgreeko & Jay Barfer defend Camputer. You Abarners need all the help you can get. go ahead pay all the players $$$$$ why stop with one? But you may already be doing it. If anyone can give Lamar from Blountsville a message for me. Tell him to keep shovleing the shit– it’s still shit no matter how you spin it.

    What’s so funny is you won’t find a post where I have said I knew Cam was 100% innocent. Bahgdad Bob would not be a correct analogy for myself…..But would describe every one of you Bammers this season to a T….I told you turds what a pathetic O-line you had from the start of the season….I told you that you should be concerned about the SCAR game…And the LSU game….But before you say ” you pick us to lose every game”…I have not…Just those two..Why ? Because they are physical up front.And frankly Bama is not.

    I don’t pick Abarn & Camputer to lose every game but looks like they will have to give them all back.

    Bama 13 NC Abarn .5 NC

    One Point

    For future reference in regards to credibility: Ceceil Newton lied to SI when he said that Cam decided to leave UF when – in February 2009 – Tebow said he was coming bvack.

    That’s impossible. Cam was not enrolled at UF for spring 2009 and could not have been elgible for UF in 2009.

    So he lied about that.

    Then there is the continuing lie that “Cam was not forced to leave Florida.” By definition, “expulsion” means you have to leave.

    So the Newton Camp has been caught in a couple of lies. And that is important in determining who is ultimately telling the truth here.

    What about the 13 traffic violations in 14 months?? Go to FoxSports and you will see the link. You can see everyone of them, the dates and the cost. Had to be a lot of tithes in the offering plate so Daddy Newton could pay all of them. I heard a guy on a radio station out of Gadsden say that the Newton’s must not have much money cause “poor Cam” was having to drive a moped around campus. That’s because his drivers license has been suspended. That’s just ridiculous for anyone to have that many violations; does he think he’s above the law?? Oh yeah let me answer that….yes and so does the AU fans.

    All things considered, on just the things we know that are true. Newton lacks integrity, and has no respect for the rules. It seems to me that he must feel like the rules do not apply to him,,,I don’t know, but isn’t that the first sign of a sochiopath,,,,,

    Profile of the Sociopath

    Glibness and Superficial Charm

    Manipulative and Conning
    They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.

    Grandiose Sense of Self
    Feels entitled to certain things as “their right.”

    Pathological Lying
    Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Can create, and get caught up in, a complex belief about their own powers and abilities. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.

    Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt
    A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.

    Shallow Emotions
    When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive. Outraged by insignificant matters, yet remaining unmoved and cold by what would upset a normal person. Since they are not genuine, neither are their promises.

    Incapacity for Love

    Need for Stimulation
    Living on the edge. Verbal outbursts and physical punishments are normal. Promiscuity and gambling are common.

    Callousness/Lack of Empathy
    Unable to empathize with the pain of their victims, having only contempt for others’ feelings of distress and readily taking advantage of them.

    Poor Behavioral Controls/Impulsive Nature
    Rage and abuse, alternating with small expressions of love and approval produce an addictive cycle for abuser and abused, as well as creating hopelessness in the victim. Believe they are all-powerful, all-knowing, entitled to every wish, no sense of personal boundaries, no concern for their impact on others.

    Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency
    Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet “gets by” by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.

    Irresponsibility/Unreliability
    Not concerned about wrecking others’ lives and dreams. Oblivious or indifferent to the devastation they cause. Does not accept blame themselves, but blames others, even for acts they obviously committed.

    Promiscuous Sexual Behavior/Infidelity
    Promiscuity, child sexual abuse, rape and sexual acting out of all sorts.

    Lack of Realistic Life Plan/Parasitic Lifestyle
    Tends to move around a lot or makes all encompassing promises for the future, poor work ethic but exploits others effectively.

    Criminal or Entrepreneurial Versatility
    Changes their image as needed to avoid prosecution. Changes life story readily.
