Who is the NFL's Superman? Panthers and 49ers disagree

Wednesday September 10th, 2014

The Superman feud dates to last year's playoff battle between the two teams, when Kaepernick borrowed Cam Newton's signature Man of Steel touchdown celebration.

Hopefully this can be settled in a more civil manner than the Dwight Howard-Shaquille O'Neal Superman battle.
