Like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton won’t back down from his handling of the controversial post-Super Bowl news conference on Sunday, when he gave perfunctory responses and walked off after about three minutes.
"I’ve been on record to say I’m a sore loser," Newton said. "Who likes to lose? You show me a good loser and I’m going to show you a loser."
Newton borrowed the last portion of that remark from Lombardi.
