It's hard rooting for the away team during a football game. It's even harder when the star quarterback for the home team has a problem with your sign. 

During warm-ups of Packers-Panthers game, Cam Newton spotted a fan's sign with the map of North Carolina on and it read, "North Carolina Cheesehead." Apparently Newton wasn't a fan so he took it down.

Mike Dobs, a resident of North Carolina, reportedly paid $500 to have the sign made. The Panthers organization talked with the family, hoping to reach some sort of solution, but the family filed a complaint with the police over the missing sign. Here's Newton with the sign in question before the game.

It'll be hard to get the police in the city of an undefeated team to go after the starting quarterback, but Dobs is passionate about the sign.

Dobs' son-in-law David Sessoms called Newton "evil" and "ghetto," and posted this to his Facebook page.

Due to the public reaction, especially because they live in North Carolina, Sessoms said he had to block two so-called friends and isn't answering any messages on social media.
