While you may have your own reasons for disliking Cam Newton, we present you with some true reasons to show disdain for the Super Bowl-bound Carolina quarterback.


He is different

No, this isn't about race. With an estimated $12 million in endorsement deals with the likes of L'Oreal and Dannon Oikos Triple Zero yogurt, the Atlanta-native trails only Peyton Manning as the league's biggest marketer. And while 26 of the 32 quarterbacks in the league are sponsored by Nike, Newton chooses Under Armour.


He can pull off this look

From capri pants to steel-toed slip ons to this blue camo suit with a bow tie, Newton turns a blind eye to traditional wear and makes every postgame conference into a runway show.


He has moves, but not like Jagger

Like the Ickey Shuffle, the Macarena and countless other dances before it, Newton has made a simple dance move into an annoying reminder that you can't move like that. It should be noted that Newton wasn't the first NFL player to celebrate with the Atlanta-born dance craze (thanks Migos!), you can direct your ire toward Bengals running back Jeremy Hill who "dabbed" in Week 1 of the 2015 season.


You're not 'Chosen'

Of all the baby names to choose from you didn't select Chosen to brand your son, and he did.


Cause he's 'Super'

Let's face it, the only reason Newton remains in the spotlight is because his team was better than yours this season and he's in the Super Bowl. So tell yourself you're watching for the commercials and divert your eyes when he pulls at his jersey and pretends to reveal his inner insignia and continue your dislike.


And watch out, his brother, Caylin, is next.
