Cecil Newton, father of Cam Newton, joined the show to defend his son after listening to the show and Hugh’s comments on Thursday, Hugh asked Cecil if he talks to Cam after he has run-ins with the media, Cecil said “I don’t, he is a grown man, I understand the questions

When asked about his comments in the GQ article “I haven’t really gone through the article line for line, but it did create an undercurrent in our society with his comments on race, anytime you do articles that can be edited things can be twisted, but Cam is truthful to his community.”

John asked Cecil about Cam’s post-game press conference about how Cam seems to be different in losses than wins, Cecil said “I don’t disagree with you John, but that’ Cam, I did not agree with the Super Bowl Interview but there was a lot of negative that surrounded him the months leading up to that.”
