Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton flew to Paris on Friday, and wasn't pleased with the leg room his seat in coach afforded him. So, like the multimillionaire that he is, Newton offered $1,500 to a fellow passenger to switch seats with him, as that passenger was positioned in a part of the plane without a row in front of him. Amazingly, the passenger rejected the generous proposal, leaving Newton to scrunch up his knees on the 10-hour flight to France.
