When asked about the dab on a radio interview with Charlottes "The Mac Attack," Newton stated he has to "put that aside" in regards to the upcoming season. The reigning NFL MVP wouldn't give any hints as to what he will celebrate with this upcoming season. "I have until September to find out," Newton said.
Newton, more than most, made the dab infamous throughout the Panthers historic 15-1 regular season by celebrating his touchdowns and victories with teammates. It spread like wildfire and had sports teams, figures, and even coaches embodying the craze. The "Tennessee Mom" letter to The Charlotte Observer following a Newton touchdown celebration really stirred the pot gaining national attention, which the woman likely wanted.
Many believe now that the dab is a curse to teams entering their respective championship. Clemson's college football team celebrated with dabbing their coach before the College Football National Championship game. Same with the North Carolina Tarheels basketball team heading into the Championship shortly after the Panthers Super Bowl loss giving the dab an 0-3 championship record. North Carolina's men's LaCrosse team recently changed all that, however, when they captured the College LaCrosse National Championship making the record 1-3.
With the retiring of the dab after a historic season, (with a disappointing ening) what do you think Cam's next celebration will be? Discuss in the comments below!
