Somehow, all of this, this great big dabbing debacle, is all Cam Newton's fault.
Maybe Cam "All Lives Matter" Newton isn't all bad. I've written about his flamboyant clothing and subtle shift from the Black Lives Matter movement to the dark side, but as the year comes to a close I can't deny that Cam Newton just might be a good dude.
