This has to be a new low for sports fans.
Just days before probably being picked first overall in the 2011 NFL draft and ultimately raking in tens of millions of dollars with his rookie contract, a site called camnewtonliedetector.com is claiming it will pay former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton $1 million to take a four question lie detector test to clear up allegations surrounding the Heisman winner and the alleged pay-for-play scheme with his father, Cecil.
- Prior to signing with Auburn, were you aware your father was “shopping” you to Mississippi State or any other school?
- Did you tell Dan or Meghan Mullen that you signed with Auburn because of the money because you truly believed Auburn had paid for your commitment?
- Did anyone on the Auburn coaching staff/athletic department instruct you how to answer questions from the NCAA by lying or avoiding the truth?
- Did you or your family ever receive any impermissible benefits from Auburn?
Obviously Newton will not take the website up on this offer even if they would actually pay him $1 million, especially since it won’t do much good to rehab Newton’s image by taking cold hard cash to clear his name for, well, taking cold hard cash.
Expect more info to come on who the individuals are behind this site. We’d expect it to be Alabama fans but the number listed on the website is curiously a Delaware area code.
