06:47 PM ET 12.05 | Apparently, Cam Newton did not impress his fellow NFL players in Hawaii this past January, according to reports. Several "unnamed" players spoke out about their experience with then-rookie Newton didn't act like a very nice person - and that's the G-rated version. CBS Sports' Pete Prisco's says he saw the other five quarterbacks during the 2012 Pro-Bowl not be rushed, but defensive players from the AFC actually went after Cam. This, in the same game where players were booed for not giving any effort - a game which made headlines and questions lingered about whether or not there would even be a Pro Bowl in 2013. Newton was sacked once in that game. It was the only sack OF the game. Cam was flung to the turf in the third quarter by Antonio Smith of the Texans after one pass and the sack came on a spin-move by another rookie, Denver's Von Miller. He also reportedly turned down at least one request for an autograph from another player for him and his family - with kids. Through a team spokesman, Newton declined to comment for this story.

Given the timing of this article, maybe Pete Prisco's will make the 2012 Olympics the subject for his next one?

Prisco's also withholding his SI swimsuit comments until 2015.

I somehow doubt the spelling of his name is "Prisco's", apostrophe+s does not a plural make. Prisco's name is Priscos, LOL?!

Since nobody watches the Pro Bowl, it's irrelevant!

Probowl voting is happening right now. The players probably put the story out so Cam wouldn't get any votes this year.

Last weekend he was doing superman poses for first downs when Carolina was losing. Pretty lame. I imagine that diva attitude didn't play well in Hawaii with the true veterans.

He certainly doesn't understand the appropriate time to gloat. And the pouting when they lose? Pull your head out of that towel and fire up your team! You're supposed to be the leader, right? Sheesh.

Obama got re-elected. That's enough for this lifetime. Whatever else happens, Cam Newton being an A #1 petulant p-r-i-c-k included, Blah.
