    I do love the spirit of this generation: they are very optimistic and creative; however, many can use some of the ol’ school lessons that emphasized respect and common decency. I hope we (as current and future parents) find a way to give them the best of both worlds. There are good things about both generations or schools of thought, but this kid was definitely on the extreme negative side of this generation’s NO FILTER issue.
    I teach in a public school (predominantly black and Hispanic) and most of my kids r great and respectful and have great, supportive parents, but there are those—too many unfortunately—who choose to behave like this young man did. And it’s sad to see the disrespect and entitlement some kids feel. And honestly, most of the ones who behave like this also can’t answer the “where’s your father question.” 🤦‍♀️

    I think the "where's your daddy" was a personal shot considering the absence of black father's in the household.

    Kids have no respect for anything today. I also keep hearing about Deion Sanders who took a coaching job at a small college in Mississippi. He’s already had both his office and truck broken into and had sentimental items taken. And they’re right, these are players that don’t have to be there. I feel like this culture or even cancel culture, all this is going to catch up to us with a vengeance and these kids will be running the world, writing bills and passing laws.

    S.A.S. Even though the show is about disagreement between you and Max, there is a time to just agree. Period! This was one of those times. Max is right on everything he said. And that kid's apology sounded scripted. As a kid, how astute is he to frame his words so eloquently. And, his name while all over the web?? What difference would it be to expose him on First Take as well? Wrong, again, Stephen A. This attack on Cam came from if not his parent ( father ) or, perhaps an uncle. Aaaand, Cam, if he's smart, aint never going to be poor again. That's what he should have said to this kid. Followed up with, " how wealthy are you going to become in your lifetime? ". Cam was just caught off guard. I would have trounced him verbally.

    No, he should be shamed with his silly behind...he's getting a crash course in free speech coupled with consequences....that kid is definitely a menace at home to his parents. For him to go out of his way to disrespect an expert in the field he's trying to get into shows he hasn't been taught to respect his elders or anything else....I hope he learns a valuable lesson.... sometimes it's best to stay quiet if you don't have anything of substance to say

    The kid should be thankful that a professional is even taking the time out to provide a training camp. Cam Newton didn’t have to be there sharing his expertise with him. Kids are so ungrateful these days and wonder why no one want to take time to teach them anything smh.

    You can be raised by a single mother, taught better and still act this way. Many children do things to impress their peers and friends. It isn't always a reflection of their parent(s) raising.

    Gridiron (american football) is a violent sport, sort of, they have pads, but there are more violent sports. Australian Rules Football is more violent than american football, rugby is more violent, they don't wear any sort of padding in rugby or the AFL, and ice hockey is far more violent than american football, in hockey a bare knuckle fist fight is part of the game. Mixed martial arts (UFC), also more violent, there are about a hundred sports more violent than american queefball.

    Mr. Newton understandably lost cool with a very disrespectful kid. To be a Black man & use your wealth and privilege to help others, then to be disrespected by your own people is very painful. This kid is very immature, rude and selfish. What a brat! His parents ought to be ashamed of him and themselves.
