Cam Newton in trouble for stealing Packers fan sign?

Football News

Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are impressing everyone this season as they are currently 8-0 and leading the NFC.

Carolina have been impressive this season and Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers just re-affirmed their status as play-off candidates.

Troublesome Cam?

While Newton made a lot of headlines for his four touchdown performance on Sunday against Green Bay, he also made some negative headlines.

A lot of people have focussed on the fact that Newton took away a fans sign prior to kick-off against the Packers.

A sign that claimed there was a North Carolina Cheesehead in the stand is what Newton took offense to and he took into into his own hands.

Newton has claimed that he doesn't regret his actions and that it was all about respect for his team in their stadium, but could he come to regret it eventually?

He may just do that as it has now been reported that the aggrieved fan has contacted the police over the apparent theft of his sign.

Mike Dobbs paid $500 to have the sign made and wasn't going to take it lying down so went to the police to report it stolen.

Dobbs has now claimed that he is giving the Panthers 48 hours to do something about it or he will seek further action.

In what is surely one of the more bizarre stories to come out of the NFL season so far, this one is still unlikely to knock the Panthers off of their stride.

In line for Nine?

Up next for Carolina is a road trip to the Tennessee Titans who are coming off the back of an impressive overtime win against the New Orleans Saints.

The Titans came away with a good win in a thriller at the Mercedes Benz Superdome but a match-up against the 8-0 Panthers will serve as their toughest test so far.
