635906155055833701-usp-nfl-super-bowl-50-carolina-panthers-vs-denver-79503686(USA Today) A defiant Cam Newton addressed reporters for the first time since the Carolina Panthers’ MVP quarterback walked out of news conference minutes after his team fell to the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday. “I’ve been on the record saying that I’m a sore loser,”  Newton told reporters at the team’s practice facility in Charlotte on Tuesday. “Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser and I’m going to show you a loser. It’s not a popularity contest. I am here to win football games.”

Added Newton: “I have said it since Day 1. I am who I am. I know what I’m capable of and I know where I am going. If you want me to conform, I’m not that guy. If you want me to be that type of person, I’m not that. I am happy to say that. This league is a great league with or without me. I understand that. I am my own person. I take pride in that.”
