Adults

I've heard a lot of negative comments about adults asking for or and trying to get autographs for themselves. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with it. It is the adults that are buying the tickets, paying for overpriced parking, drinking the overpriced beer in the stadiums, buying the overpriced paraphernalia, vehicle stickers, tags on the front of our vehicles and so forth. I have never gotten an autograph from anyone, but I would not feel bad about asking for an autograph from a player on my favorite team that I support.

Some people take this team and sport wayyyy too seriously.

No offense, but if you, like the rest of us, post on a message board specifically about this team, you're also guilty of taking this team and sport very seriously.

Yeah autographs are cool, but I feel like I'm beyond that now at my age. Dick LeBeau played golf at my club this year and I could've easily gotten an autograph, but I just said I'd like to shake hands with a hall of famer and joke about him being the godfather of the 3-4. He smiled and we talked a little football. He had nothing but praise about Cam.

What I think is weird is when an adult meets a high profile athlete, and they get star struck... I do think that that's pathetic. After going to a few of DeAngelo and J Stew's events in the past it made me sick to my stomach.

I mean seriously... You're a grown ass man, and you're fawning over another grown ass man in person?

It just doesn't make any sense to me.

I think it's fricken weird to see a man 3x my age (20) yelling out Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith let me shake your hand.

you'll be a 50-60 year old sports fan one day................

don't tell me you know what you will and won't do.......because you don't,

PS.......TC is the place to do these things.

Oh you are damn right, I will be a Panthers fan til the day I die.

But I want knock a 10 year old kid on his ass to get Steve Smith's autograph.

"Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith, I came all the way from Tampa to shake your hand."

I mean really?

True, but not "wayyyy too seriously". There is a difference. I no longer own a jersey, or any memorbilia, I couldn't care less about reading about TC, I no longer get angry about stupid FO moves or blunders by players, and if the team loses it no longer ruins my week. Heck, I don't even think we're going to make the Playoffs.
