Fans? You mean they have fans?

Here is the difference between Steeler and Cardinal fans. I was listening to The Drive on Espn and Eddie Crow made this comment ---

Crow: "I just received a message the Tampa airport is puking Black and Gold and they're streaming off the planes into Tampa by the boatloads." :toofunny:

Now that is what I am talking about. :tt02::tt02:

Ugh!!! I would cut off various parts of my anatomy to be there (not the fun ones).

Oh, the cruel irony...I've been to 9 games this year, including 2 road games, and every year for the past 3 years I've travelled to Tampa this very week for business. Just a couple of months ago, I got a new assignment, so no Tampa trip.

We need more fan pics from Tampa! I want to live vicariously through my fellow members of Steeler Nation.

90% of the "Cardinal fans" in Tampa this week are really Cleveland, Baltimore, Cincy, NE....etc fans in disguise.

Arizona doesn't have many fans that were paying attention long enough to get a decent airfare to Tampa. From my experience you need to book those economy fares 3-4 weeks in advance.

Hey did you ever think the players were focused or on their way to a meeting. And if you stop to sign one, you'll sign a hundred.

I heard from a parent of a USF Student that Steelers players didn't stop to sign autographs after practice. What's that mean? To me, it means they are focused and have things to do - autographs can come later.

Besides if you only came to Tampa for autographs, why not just wait for training camp next year?

As much as i enjoy bashing the cardinals and their fans I agree. How do you pick who you are gonna sign for and who you are not. You got bigger fish to fry and i hope your fans understand that. I always go to Latrobe I got a oficial football with about 25 sigs on it. Everyone from Bettis to Hines Ward. If i already have that players signatrue then ill get one for a little cousin on a card or something. If a player does not sign for me i just kinda understand that they are busy and wish them a good season i dont feel blown off or slighted.

that's a good view to have. Too many fans feel that it's their god-given right for players to sign their crap, and if they don't sign then it's a personal insult.

Thanks. I played 3 sports all through high school and i know after a bad or tough practice i really just want left alone. A lot of times they have other meetings, intervies or film sessions scheduled especially Super Bowl week i imagine every moment you arent with media or in practice you are sleeping. Unless you are Pac Man and you are at the Scrip Club.

They couldn't stop to sign all three autographs? :flap: :sofunny:

But seriously, they don't get paid to sign autographs. And I don't blame athletes that don't sign...they have other things to do, they have lives to.

Not to mention, it's not like back in the day when they signed an autograph and the person treasured it...now it gets sold on Ebay for money.

I am not an autograph seeker. Players have no obligation whatsoever to sign their names to things. People are just money grubbing jerks who want to get everything signed and hope it is worth money some day. The only signature I got was from Mike Merriweather who was at the Las Vegas home of the Terrible Towel club this year and I had to pay for the signatures.

Not to mention people will come up to a celebrity when they are having dinner in a resturant, and even mob thier vehicles at traffic lights.

If I would have been there and if they decided to stop and sign autographs I would have treasured it and not sold it on eBay. I have racing autographs from when I followed that sport. Still, there's a time and place for everything and maybe that wouldn't be it. :noidea:

i agee but if u would have seen the clip u would understand they showed warner signing and other players blowing by i understand they cant just sign autos but they had some pretty ticked off fans

eden
01-29-2009, 10:31 PM
i also would also treasure any autos i could get look i feel like i am being bashed for this post all i am saying is it was an overwhelming # of fans and they did not say anything about any ticked off steelers fans we have great fans i would fight for my team in a heartbeat these fans jumped ship over a missed autograph :thumbsup:
