I'm pretty sure I've heard stories from people on here saying our own Steve Smith can be "distant" to fans as well. Doesn't make him an ass to me. I'd get annoyed if fans came up to me all the time wanting an autograph when I went out to shop or do something other than play football.
Yes, I have personally seen this. I worked with a girl who said something to Smitty like hey smith I am a big fan and he said "just do your job". I see a few panthers quite a bit where I work and I never bother them, sure I want to talk football but they aren't at work they are living their life and you need to respect their space.
If you want an auto buy some great seats and try it get it at a game or something. Nothing is wrong with an auto but then he has ten other people wanting one and pretty soon his time off is not time off. I really don't think that was that bad of response, respect it.

We buy the tickets (that are overpriced) We buy their jerseys. We watch them on TV. They don't want to sign autographs for fans of THEM? Dude WTF, someone who spends that much time and money on you and supporting you and you can't take five seconds to sign something? It'd be different if a crowd gathered. Or if he WAS eating or drinking beer. Don't change this. He was SHOPPING. And to the guy who used the CEO excuse, smh. Are you serious? That's nothing like what this is. Any celeb, athlete or not, knows that they're giving up their privacy for the paycheck... If you don't want to be in the public eye you wouldn't play football infront of thousands of fans...
That is the stoooooooooooooopidest logic ever.
