National Football League issues statement after Cam Newton's remarks toward female reporter

"So I get it".

Still, Rodrigue admitted on Twitter that Newton's patronizing remarks were uncalled for.

Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue on Wednesday asked Panthers quarterback Cam Newton about third-year wide receiver Devin Funchess.

"It's amusing to hear females talk about routes".

However, it is not amusing Cam.

"If I hear a female that don't play basketball or never has talk about defending the side pick and roll I'd be surprised", White tweeted Thursday. Actually, it's disturbing, because there is a multitude of talented female journalists covering the sport these days. "He's being condescending to a reporter doing her job". Countless women have stories like this, and not just within sports.

If it's natural for us to not believe a woman could possibly understand what "routes" are in football, how in the world will we ever believe she could become President? I know, it's one of the most 2017 developments to develop in 2017.

Unfortunately, I know all too well how this female reporter feels. "I don't want to anticipate the league stepping in there". On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers had their weekly news conference ahead of Sunday's matchup.

Yes, I am pissed.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

"This afternoon, I did my job as an National Football League beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers", she said in a statement.

"Newton said she wasn't really seeing specific routes when watching the game, she was just seeing if somebody was open", the Observer reported. However, I am glad that actions are being taken so he can possibly learn his lesson. But it also starts with people cutting out this sexist, misogynistic garbage.

As far as explosiveness, they are above-average, so this might not have been something McDermott was saying just to pass the time until people got exhausted of asking him questions. "I chose not to share (what was said), because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from".
