Megatron Edges out Cam Newton For Madden ’13 Cover

+Read full article

To the possible dismay or joy of Carolina Panther Fans depending on your belief in the “Madden Curse”, Cam Newton was edged out by Calvin Johnson to be this year’s cover boy.

Whittled down from a field of 64 players, with 20 million fans voting, Calvin “Megatron” Johnson will be on the cover of this year’s Madden ’13 game.

“I’m shocked,” Johnson said when the cover was revealed.

“I thought you guys loved me,” Newton pleaded to the crowd, shortly after congratulating Megatron for the victory. Detroit Lions fans will now hold their breath every time Megatron takes a hard hit this year, and here is hoping that no injury or statistical downfall happens to either Johnson or Newton. The Twin Cats as they were called by SportsNation announcers who made the announcement live from Times Square, eventually unveiled the cover showing Megatron making a catch and interviewed both athletes after the reveal.

Cam Newton last week made a youTube video challenging Megatron to battle in Madden and live webcast the game, and then delighted fans everywhere by issuing a challenge to his fans and showing his PS2 and XBoX gamer handle to the screen as well.

Newton and Johnson both had ProBowl years last year(amid recent news that there might not be a ProBowl next year), and they are both on teams that are looking to improve on decent showings last year by building on the draft this year. It should be an exciting year for both players, and an exciting year for all the gamers who get to see “Megatron” on the cover.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.

Watch Angry Grandpa Go Insane After Panthers' Loss

The Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 which disappointed Panthers fans everywhere. I'm going to go out on a limb and say not many fans were as angered by the loss as this elderly man. While a lot of us have the self-control to avoid letting our anger take us this far, this grandpa didn't care and took his frustrations out on the television.

Watch Newton Give Immature Interview, Walk Off

I've defended Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton against his haters all season long, but I can't do it any longer after watching his postgame interview following Super Bowl 50. He needed to be a man and sit up there and answer every question sent his way. If he's going to be the excitable, happy guy fans see after wins, he needs to be a professional after losses. This reeks of immaturity and is something he will need to work on in the future.
