Cam Newton decided to have a little fun at his press conference on Wednesday ahead of the Carolina Panthers’ game against the Detroit Lions.
Newton went semi-Arian Foster and repeated the same response (or a similar variation of it) to many of the questions he received.
“My main focus is on the Detroit Lions. I got my hands full trying to stay protected from Donkey Kong Suh and my former Auburn teammate, Nick Fairley,” Newton said in response to five of the 27 questions he was asked.
You may recall that Foster gave an interview in July where he answered each question the same say, saying he was just trying to be a good teammate. Of course, the originator of this style is Rasheed Wallace.
Oh, and I’m sure you could already figure it out, but “Donkey Kong Suh” is a version of Ndamukong Suh’s name mashed up with the famous video game, “Donkey Kong.” The nickname has been used for years.
