CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Panthers quarterback Cam Newton says he’s “sore loser,” but defended walking out of a press conference after the Super Bowl by saying he didn’t feel like talking to the media after Carolina’s 24-10 loss to the Denver Broncos.
Newton says, “Show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser.”
The league NFL MVP didn’t apologize for walking out of a brief three-minute interview on Sunday night in which he sulked and answered most questions in one- and two-word answers.
As players were clearing out their lockers on Tuesday, Newton said, “If I offended anybody that’s cool, but I know who I am and I’m not about to conform nor bend for anybody’s expectations because yours or anybody’s expectations would never exceed mine.”
