Another joins the conspiracy against Cam!

Remember all those glowing stories on CBS, ESPN and the local media about how wonderful Cam Newton is?

Whoops.

The Smoking Gun provides some interesting details that contradict much of the spin heard around Birmingham.

According to the Smoking Gun, “A University of Florida Police Department report, excerpted here, details how investigators tracked the stolen laptop to the athlete, and how Newton tossed the computer out his dorm window in a humorously ill-advised attempt to hide it from cops (a friend scooped up the laptop and hid it behind a dumpster at a nearby school building). As cops were about to search his room, Newton (then a backup to Florida QB Tim Tebow) was overheard on a cellphone telling someone, ‘There was a computer and I took it.’ After noting that he had thrown the laptop out of the window, Newton remarked, ‘Huh! Cuz, they bout to search my room.'”

Once again: “‘There was a computer and I took it.”

There was a computer and I took it.

It looks like the Smoking Gun has joined the conspiracy against Auburn. You can add the website to a list that already includes ESPN, the New York Times, TMZ, Urban Meyer, Tom Arnold and the Pope.

    He was charged withn THEFT – not receiving stolen property. It’s right there in black and white. But the AU PR department has continued to insist “he just BOUGHT a stolen laptop,” Unfortunately, that isn’t what the record says. it says FELONY THEFT – not misdemeanor receiving stolen property.

    The media has been very lazy on this.

    “Scam” was charged with burglary, larceny, and obstruction of justice.
    I believe the charges were dropped on condition he enter some sort of First-Time Offender program. That in effect is conceding guilt.

    I’m surprised none of you ever caught onto the fact that the Schlabach story says he bought the computer for $500 and the Lars Anderson story say he bought it for around $100.

    THe classroom crap at Fl. is insignificant. So is the computer. That horse has died and been eaten by maggots already.

    the real story is did Cam shop around ? Even more important, did he get paid and by who ?

    All the other stuff doesn’t matter.

    Oh excuse me….it does matter. The Heisman Tropy is awarded to an upstanding athlete with morals, character and integrity. What is it going to take for you Barners to realize he possess none of those qualities? TAKE YOUR BLINDFOLDS OFF NOW…..
