We all know about the Cam Newton situation where his camp supposedly requested upwards of $180k for him to attend a school. On Saturday Cam and Auburn played Alabama in the Iron Bowl and mounted a remarkable 28-27 comeback to defeat the fighting Nick Satans and stay unbeaten. The game was played Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium and during the team warm ups the stadium DJ decided it would be funny to play a couple songs in favor of good Ol’ Cam…. First, “take the money and run” graced the stadium speakers followed by “son of a preacher man.”
Why is this funny do you ask? Well, for one, Cam’s father is a preacher and he also is the one being accused of shopping his Heisman-hopeful son to the likes of Miss. State and Auburn for a price tag.
Then today after the on the field “funny”, stadium DJ X was fired for his practical joke. Alabama’s PR Director had this to say about the firing, “Our processes require that all music and videos played in the stadium prior to and during every game be carefully scripted and approved by a senior administrator in the Athletics Department… The former staff member deviated from the script that had been approved for the game with Auburn, and the University took steps to immediately terminate his contract.”
