Hall Of Famer Richard Dent On Cam’s Dancing: “I Would Knock Your Ass Out The Game”
First things first, you can’t tell an old head NOTHING. Their era was best, the toughest, and nobody will ever compare. Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent is not a fan of Cam Newton’s dancing in the end zone and he gave his thoughts on it to USA Today Sports.
“It’s disrespect,” Hall of Fame defensive end Richard Dent told USA TODAY Sports.
“I’m going to knock your ass out of the game. That would’ve been my approach,” Dent said.
“At some point in the game — not with a cheap shot — I’m going to try to get a shot that puts you out for the day. That’s the risk when you want to showboat all the time.”
At 6-5, 245 pounds, Newton, 26, is bigger than many of the defensive ends from Dent’s era. His answer to opponents who despise his pay dirt theatre? Stop me from scoring.
“Act like this is what you’re getting paid to do,” Dent said. “But these kids, that’s what you get in the Twitter, Facebook world. It’s ‘Look at me!’ ”
“His head is so high,” Dent said, “he’s going to have a problem after he’s finished playing — personality-wise — if he doesn’t get to where he wants to be.”
Just in case you don’t know, this is the same Richard Dent that played on that Bears team that produced The Super Bowl Shuffle video that drew a bunch of criticism. Pot meet kettle.
