I agree with Charles Barkley on this: This is a stupid controversy
Cam Newton has shown some real play and leadership this year for his team. I give him a lot of credit for that. Do I like him? Hell no, I was rooting for the Seahawks (or the Packers). And his theatrics are annoying to anyone playing against him, but I am pretty sure Carolina fans like him a whole lot right now and will be loving him if he manages to win them a Lombardi trophy. Carolina is a dynamic team right now.
You may want to root for Peyton Manning, instead. I suspect the Broncos do not want a repeat of their last trip to the Super Bowl--and they really want a Lombardi trophy too. Peyton is one of the greats of the game, this may be his last Super Bowl, and he and the Broncos managed to keep the insufferable Patriots and Tom Brady out of the big game.
I am hoping for a really good game.
