Cam Newton is in Australia for a player exchange program where he is training with the Richmond Tigers of the Australian football league. From all reports, he has been impressed with their toughness even though they don't wear the pads. It turns out them boys are tough down under, and Cam felt like a fish out of water. Cam candidly remarked, "I can honestly say I don't know what I'm doing." Well buddy, you aren't the only one. I know absolutely nothing about Aussie football or "footy," but I can tell you that mess looks crazy. It's like a combination of soccer, rugby, football, and field-goal kicking all in one.
ESPN's David Newton noted that Cam seemed near intimidated by the sport and the physicality of those padless Dundies running around. Again, I don't blame him. Those guys are have that crazy gene. We all know that guy. The volatile one at the bar. You don't mess with him, not because he is insanely badass, but because they guy doesn't have a killswitch. He's that crazy ass mo-fo that ain't scared to go to jail. Well that's who Aussie football players look like to me.
So if Cam Newton hanging out with a bunch of crazy, "no-limit" gangsters wasn't bad enough, he's still chunking the ball over dudes heads.
