Whats the deal with Cam charging for Autographs today?

192 posts in this topic

ugh. how was it a bad move?

nothing bad about it. nothing greedy about it. dude was offered a chance to get paid to sign some stuff that people will likely be getting paid for later on.

so?

it's not like he makes himself invisible to the fans or anything. it's not like he turns down offers to sign things for kids and the average fan.

i swear people are petty.

Ive never really nderstood the fascination for autographs myself. I would much prefer to just shake his hand and have his attention for 15 seconds. Long enough to say "Thank you, Im so grateful for everything you have done"

15 seconds is a long hand shake huh?. . .yeah he might look at me wierd after not letting go of his hand, but still

It's kind of a no win situation. If you don't sign any at all, you're perceived as a prima donna ahole. If you sign a ton of 'em, even for free, they'll still have value if you're a superstar player. Signing the kind of stuff he'll get in a 'sit down couple of hours' like this will at least get his sig out there on these typical items and help to 'out' the fakes that always appear. Apparently he's already seeing fake signatures. OTOH it's always gonna spark some outrage when a guy who's set for life with his first pro contract charges for sigs. If I were Cam I'd probably donate my share of the proceeds to charity.

Funny, how Cam gets criticized but The Golden Calf of Bristol does the same thing.

all of the higher profile players do this.

we're just not that used to it because...well...we haven't really had that many high profile players here.

Hines Ward just did this two weeks ago in Charlotte, and he's RETIRED. And it's not as if Cam is charging fans in Charlotte or in NC it's an event in Atlanta.

It's Cam we're talking about. You know he was choosen to be the media's whopping boy. I'm sure if Luck or any other QB did it it would have been well justified.
