Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is used to winning most one-on-one matchups on the field due to his size and strength.  A one-on-one matchup with a fellow passenger on a flight from France proved to be too much.

Newton attempted to make the 10 hour flight a little more comfortable by switching seats with a man in a seat that had more leg room.  He evened offered up $1,500 in cash, but was denied.

Why be a rich athlete if you can’t even pay people to switch seats with you?  And why would you not take the money to switch seats?  The entire world has been turned upside down.
