Cam Newton campaigns for Madden NFL 13 Cover
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took to YouTube today to campaign for his spot on the cover of Madden NFL 13.
In a final push to win the competition, Cam Newton didn't take the "nice guy" approach, pleading with fans to vote for him. No sir, he took the cocky/confident approach and not only issued a challenge to rival cover athlete Calvin Johnson, but also challenged fans to a game of Madden as a livestreamed match.
Newton first called out Johnson: "My first challenge goes out to you, Mr. Megatron, Calvin Johnson. If you are who you say you are and you want to be Mr. Madden 13, can you play Madden?"
Newton didn't stop there, however. He went on to call out every Madden player.
"My next challenge is to you fans because I think my talents are so good, my thumbs are so official on the sticks that I will play anybody. People who play me know the shirt is explanatory; fear no one. These thumbs are official."
"I am an official Madden player. This is a PSA to everybody who thinks they can play Madden. Come play your boy, Ace Boogie."
