Cam Newton on why he was benched

Cam Newton explained why he was benched when the Carolina Panthers played against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. The Panthers QB did not wear a tie on the team's flight from northern California to Seattle on Friday, which is a direct violation of head coach Ron Rivera’s team rule. "I didn't follow dress code, and Coach told me I wasn't going to start. I stand by his decision... [Rivera] has rules in place, and I have to abide by them. No person is greater than the next person."," said Newton Newton revealed that he could not find a dress shirt in his size to pair with a tie by the time he realized his blunder.
