Do SEC, NFL Rivalries Trump Native Sons?

Everyone likes to see the hometown hero succeed on the bigger stage, but there apparently are limits. Most folks are probably acquainted with a certain Westlake High School football star who went on to college glory at Auburn and now plays for the Carolina Panthers. But in attempting to re-name Scarborough Road in South Fulton county after Cam Newton, the limits of goodwill are being tested by football allegiances (not to mention some of the more unsavory aspects of Newton's college career).
