"We've got a split, 70-30," Newman said Tuesday. "I got 70 (percent), he got 30, so it'll be nice. We're on pay-per-view. ... A lot of people are going to watch it."
Worried about Witten
During the first quarter of the Cowboys' 7-6 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Campo met Newman as he came to the sideline, but the cornerback pushed away the coach, and they exchanged words.
Newman started off saying it would be a Don King-promoted event in Las Vegas. Then he came up with the idea that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones would be in charge.
Of course, Newman predicted he would win.
"I got reach! I got height!" Newman said. "I've got this."
Newman's only semi-serious comments echoed the coaches' notion that tempers always flare in the heat of competition.
"Every team has things that go down. So what?" Newman said. "We're all in a fight. It's in the same spirit. We're in the fight to get to the playoffs. It's all the same thing."
Told what Newman said, Campo waved a hand, smiled, then said, "Everything's good."
