Cam Newton

No surprise here: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player on Saturday.

The 26-year-old, 6' 5" quarterback led the Panthers to a spectacular 15-1 regular season. The team's only loss was to our Atlanta Falcons 20-13 in week 16.

The Panthers take on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Newton is heavily favored to bring the coveted Lombardi Trophy to Charlotte, North Carolina for the 1st time in team history.

But even if he wins, Newton will lose to the state of North Carolina.

According to Forbes:

Win on Sunday, and Newton will pay California a total of $159,560 in taxes in 2016. Lose, and he will pay $159,200, based on an income reduction of $51,000.

The result: Newton will pay California 99.6% of his Super Bowl earnings if the Panthers win. Losing means his effective tax rate will be a whopping 198.8%. Oh yeah, he will also pay the IRS 40.5% on his earnings.

Carolina lost to the New England Patriots 32-29 in Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 -- their only other appearance.

Sports Illustrated hailed Super Bowl XXXVIII as the "Greatest Super Bowl of all time."

Tom Brady was Super Bowl 38's MVP and Beyonce performed the National Anthem.

Let's hope Beyonce's halftime appearance during Super Bowl 50 doesn't jinx Newton and the Panthers.

By the way, rap mogul Jeezy, who was born in Columbia, SC, dropped the new track "Hit 'Um", which was inspired by Newton.

  • That’s Interesting

    Beyonce IS pregnant for real this time. Congrats! She also SLAYED the halftime show. I thought she was about to do "Crazy in Love" for a second!

  • NSYDEOUT

    So, Cold Play was NOT needed. Like, WTF!? Just keep Bruno & Bey. It was cute. Classic fashion. She announces her tour.

  • lil goodie

    Off topic. .. i thought janet jackson already did rthymn nation....

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    They were wheak. They are starting to seem like they rely on gimmicks.

  • SummerBaby

    I agree that she looked pregnant.

  • NSYDEOUT

    I was looking. I think that maybe, it's true this time but.....after suffering a miscarriage a fee times myself, you learn to sitcho azz down somewhere. She didn't do that.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I just remembered Beyoncé had a Pepsi deal a few years back, watching this Pepsi halftime show...

  • NSYDEOUT

    That's what it is now. No true originality. So, u try to find the good.

  • Fendi

    The best thing so far was the Hulk and Ant-Man Coke commercial. Lol

    I didn't watch the halftime show. I'm sure the stans will be stanning. I ain't got time.

  • That’s Interesting

    It's all in her face and her butt. I could also see her bump in her onesie, especially from the side. She also wasn't dancing that hard...

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I love "Magic" by Coldplay. Has a nice bass line to it. I'm not sure what's up with them.

  • SummerBaby

    I could see it all in her thighs.

  • That’s Interesting

    I HATE the lead singer's voice, so I could never stand any of their songs.

  • That’s Interesting

    Those too!

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Thatass was jiggin' in the "Formation" video.

    Like never before.

  • AnonymousRose

    Yea she did, when she lost her balance

  • puppylove

    She recovered nicely though. Jay probably told her to sat down when she got off stage.

  • NSYDEOUT

    I thought I was the only one that saw that. Get light headed in that first trimester.

  • puppylove

    And boobs. She had lost a ton of weight after blue, but she must be back to eating Popeyes.

    #$%&!!!!!! Cam!!!

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    I don't know what that mess was Cam just did.

    Is he hurt? He's been grimacing...

  • Milani

    ...he was RIGHT THERE, I don't know why he sidestepped away from the ball instead of running to go get it.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I guess he didn't want to break a nail. I don't see how he can be upset about Demarius when he didn't even try to get the ball.

    Did he get paid or what?

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Two weeks ago he was doing front flips into the endzone. Now he can't dive on a fumble..

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Makes you wonder.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    NO EXCUSES! He didn't even try, and that fake forward pass...no words.

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    Fixed outcome?

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    ...arm slinging with no ball in it.

    You mean Cam, right? ?

    Welp, Beyonce jinxed the Panthers in 2004 and she did it again in 2016. #BeyonceBowl2016

  • Finding Forever…

    I'm NOT even understanding THIS ISH! Balls OVER & UNDER thrown, flags should be thrown & aren't (at least for the Panthers)...I'm so NOT a "conspiracy" person, but DAMN if I'm NOT wondering, LOL...

    Janet Jackson titty was famous that particular game. It lost too in the end.

    Gn.

  • Fabulousbrownme

    First UNC men's bb lost and now the Panthers lost. It's been a glorious sports weekend for me! Hopefully, this will teach Cam a lesson in humility. The petty in me wanted the Broncos team to collectively dab on the Panthers at the end of the game.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    SHE SANG TOO!

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    I SLEPT CLEAN THROUGH HALFTIME SMH

    That's fine. He still looks like Mr. Magoo.

  • Fabulousbrownme

    Lol, I thought I was the only that wasn't on the Cam Newton bandwagon

  • Fendi

    The reach for funny commercials was so real this Super Bowl. The commercials are usually awesome. Not only was this game horrible, so were the commercials. I was expecting to see an amazing Budweiser commercial, complete with Clydesdales. Frito Lay usually gives us a funny Doritos commercial. No Darth Vader child this year or anything cute like that. It was just boring. Good think I got some rest halfway through.

  • S. Williams

    Eli will never go down in history the way his brother will regardless of how many rings he has over Peyton. He is the lesser QB. It just is what it is

  • S. Williams

    nerp!

  • Finding Forever…

    Well was ANY of the Housewives worth WASTING my brain cells on, since CLEARLY this game WASN'T much, LOL...

  • Fendi

    It looks like Marshawn Lynch hung his cleats up for good. Of the $50 million he earned from his contract, he spent a whopping $0.

    Gotta love it!

  • Milani

    LOL, the look on his face...it was like he was thinking "So, he ain't all that...I got SB rings too!"

  • http://www.sandrarose.com Django the God

    *Nose laugh*

  • Finding Forever…

    Yeah, this true & at the same time WE are HUMAN, so I just wonder if the competitive switch can be turned on & off; but the Williams sisters come to mind, too. Even though you are PROUD of them, is there not a little "WISH IT WAS ME INSTEAD"...

  • Finding Forever…

    RIGHT, FACE SAID "DAMN DAD, DO I REALLY HAVE TO CLAP & BE PUMPED?"...REALLY would have been HILARIOUS if he DABBED like the Panthers did them in NY, caused them to lose Odell & all, LOL.

  • 1/8

    OMG! They are crucifying Newton on Twitter. I don't follow sports; so, I have no idea why everyone is being so hard on him.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Awww I was rooting for them as one of our hometown kids play with them. Welp congrats to the Broncos.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Because he was too cocky before the game and he showed his Prima donna side when he refused to fall on the football after he fumbled.

  • nicelyput32

    They'll build you up and tear you down.

  • 1/8

    I just noticed that everyone is talking about how cocky he is. I figured most athletes are a little cocky.

    Can you explain the importance of him falling on the ball after the fumble? Is that to ensure the other team doesn't take possession of the ball?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What about Peyton Manning shouting out Budweiser during interviews?

  • 1/8

    Oh, I forgot about the betting! I'm a complete lady-boy when it comes to sports! LMAO

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Everyone over here was saying they thought he looked off and slow throughout the game.

  • RobKardashianLovesChocolate

    Sandra can you post more about Cam Newton? He is so fine especially on his interviews. ?
