What started as credible allegations against Cameron Newton at Auburn has turned into a rumor free-for-all to take the kid down
. It turns out the conversation with John Bond that named Kenny Rogers as the middleman was nothing but gossip in a four-man game of telephone
. Bond doesn't haven't facts. He has rumors. Plus, we all know Kenny Rogers is too smart to get caught up in a scandal because he knows when to hold 'em, knows when to fold 'em, knows when to walk away and when to run. But the Rogers allegations aren't the only gossip tugging at Newton's Heisman trophy. Now, we're hearing Newton cheated on tests, had outstanding parking tickets at Florida, demanded money for his L.O.I., and doesn't put the seat down when after pees.
The rumors are getting ridiculous.
And, here at KSR, we eat, sleep, and blog ridiculous so we're going to join in on the fun. @fakegimel
already got it going on Twitter under the tag #StartingNewtonRumorsIsFun
, so I brought some of the best from Twitter over here and added a few of my own.
