Go vote… make a difference.. Real talk..

Tuesday is Election Day, so folks of all sorts are encouraging their followers and fans to head out to the ballots and exercise their constitutional rights. It’s not a particularly long message, but it’s good to hear from the former NBA star and future Hall of Famer.

But what’s up with this camera angle? Clearly, my man was alone filming this on his own, because the sideways look is almost worse than a vertically aligned video that should be horizontal. He does curse once, which is understandable considering our political climate these days, but there’s one particularly funny thing that happens at the end.

“Stand for something, aight? Salute.” Cool, makes sense, right? Well, except if you look at it closely, it appears that he is sitting down. Unless Garnett has elevated his Bentley so high that the grill itself is at eye level, with a nearly 7-foot tall man. Also, if you look at the reflection of his glasses, it looks like the view of a kid getting ready to knock on the door for Halloween treats.

All jokes aside, it’s a good message. Down-ticket races, too.

Locker Room Lawyer

Locker Room Lawyer, Episode 10: Cam Newton

The Carolina Panthers quarterback feels he isn’t protected from hard hits like other quarterbacks

3:50 PMIn this week’s edition of Locker Room Lawyer, Clinton Yates and Domonique Foxworth take the case of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to The Undefeated courtroom.

On Sunday during a postgame news conference following the Panthers’ 30-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals, Newton expressed his displeasure about the lack of late-hit calls he receives, especially compared with those received by other quarterbacks in the NFL, adding that he planned to go as far as to address the issue personally with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

“At times, I don’t even feel safe. Enough is enough,” Newton said. “I plan on talking to Commissioner Goodell about this. It’s not fun, and I don’t know what I have to do.”

On Tuesday, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that the NFL has concluded that the Cardinals should have been flagged for an illegal hit on Newton in Sunday’s game. Goodell has also reportedly promised to speak to Newton.

In the meantime, Domonique, a former NFL cornerback and our Locker Room Lawyer, has Newton’s back, and the numbers are in his favor. On the other hand, Clinton argues that the real problem lies in the inherent danger of the sport.

Will the verdict be in Newton’s favor?

Check out the video, and if you have any professional athlete in mind (past or present) who needs the Locker Room Lawyer’s representation, feel free to email us at allday@theundefeated.com with episode ideas. Also, check out our weekly All Day Podcast.
