The losing Carolina quarterback walked out of a media interview after losing The Super Bowl Sunday to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
Losing is tough. No one likes it — especially minutes after the losing the game.
Newton actually called himself a “sore loser” and is wearing it with pride – for now.
This irritates some people and parents who are still trying to keep some semblance of sportsmanship in sports.
Losing is a rehearsal for winning – winning is best, losing is second best and is a great motivator. Cam Newton will likely lead another team to The Super Bowl and has a good chance of winning next time.
The Super Bowl trophy is named after Vince Lombardi, the winning coach who is famous for saying “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”.
I get it and you do, too.
We don’t play to lose.
But there is great value in all our lives to respect setbacks as the greatest character builder known to humanity.
Go easy on Cam Newton.
He just needs a little time to process what we all have trouble with from time to time – understanding how to deal with defeat.
