Cam Newton sparks controversy after comments to female reporter

Jourdan Rodrigue is a Panthers beat reporter for the Charlotte Observer. It’s literally her job to cover quarterback Cam Newton and his teammates every single day. Rodrigue asked Newton about the improved route-running of wide receiver Devin Funchess. Here is Newton’s response:

Cam Newton is 28-years-old. Women have covered the sport every day of his football life in various capacities. This behavior is tired. Athletes and men in general need to stop acting as if our Y chromosome gives us an understanding of sports that women will never grasp. Sports just aren’t that hard to figure out for any functioning human being.
