New York Yankees Management To Players: Be Like Russell Wilson, Not Cam Newton

David Hookstead Smoke Room Editor-in-Chief

New York Yankees management apparently wants their players to behave like NFL star Russell Wilson instead of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

The Yankees showed players videos of how Wilson and Newton both handle the media, and the message was clear that the ball club sees the Seattle Seahawks signal caller in a much more positive light than Cam Newton.

ESPN reporter Andrew Marchand tweeted, “During the Yankees’ media training, the Super Bowl is being used to portray the right and wrong way to act. Part of a video shown to pitchers and catchers compares how Cam Newton handled his Super Bowl loss to the way Russell Wilson dealt with his defeat the previous year.” (RELATED: NFL Star Russell Wilson Grants Young Girl Her Final Wish Shortly Before She Dies)

Newton abruptly walked out of the Super Bowl post-game press conference after his abysmal performance and was thoroughly shellacked by the media for his disrespectful behavior. (RELATED: Sulky Cam Newton Walks Away From Press Conference After Stunning Defeat [VIDEO])
