During a recent New York Yankees media training session, Yankees players were asked to not follow Cam Newton's example after the loss to the Denver Broncos.
The Super Bowl is being used to portray the right and wrong way to act. Part of a video shown to pitchers and catchers compares how Cam Newton handled his Super Bowl loss to the way Russell Wilson dealt with his defeat the previous year.
After getting dismantled in Super Bowl 50 by the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton spent only about three minutes fielding questions from the media, giving mostly tersely worded answers before walking off the podium.
"I've been on record to say I'm a sore loser," Newton said a day later, before quoting Vince Lombardi. "Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser and I'm going to show you a loser."
One year earlier, after Russell Wilson threw a stunning goal-line interception to the Patriots' Malcolm Butler that sealed Super Bowl XLIX for New England, Wilson expressed disappointment over the loss, took blame and answered questions fully.
