As you may recall I posted a take about how much of a jerk I think Swann is. I stated that I ascertained my information from a book. I found the excerpts I was looking for. The book is "Lambert, The Man in the Middle" by Jim O'brien.

1) pg. 346 Chapter named "Signing Stories, Who's Nice and Who's Not"

Saylor had a story about Lynn Swann, a former Steelers' receiver who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in the summer of 2002. "I paid $75 a pop for his signature," recalled Saylor. "I had him sign a miniature USC helmet and a miniature Steelers helmet. I dropped $150 right there. I asked him if he'd put his number next to his name. Swann said, 'You're paying for my autograph--nothing else!'

2) pg 346

Frank Caputo, who owns Caputo's Sports Collectibles in Century III Mall, said, " I heard a story where someone asked Swann to sign some stuff that they were going to use to raise some funds for Mike Webster when he was hurting. Swann said he'd do it, but he had to get some money for it. That was disappointing to hear that."

3) pg 348

Another story making th rounds was that Swann got into a dispute with a Steelers' marking rep over how much of a commission the Steelers ought to get from Swann signing memorabilia. "Don't you know," said Swann in a huff, "that you are dealing with a HOF'er."

4) pg 348

I said "Hi, Mr. Swann. I'm a big fan of yours.' He never even acknowledged my greeting. He just turned around and walked back out. It was a real letdown. I felt so stupid for liking him in the first place.


The fourth scenerio was a statement made by a fan who was meeting Swann for the very first time.

I'm posting this just for anyone who questioned the integrity of what I was saying...

Hmmm... never knew this about Swann?!?!

The first story is the one that strikes me the most because it's direct from the person who had the encounter with Swann and not a "he said she said story". The one thing I can't understand about athletes is charging for their autograph... yeah people take it and sell it for the most part, but considering how much money they are already making (maybe not him because of the era he played in) they are really abusing their popularity.

Thanks for the posting this, it really makes you look at someone differently once you see how they really are, especially in reagrds to the Webster fund raiser, what a jerk if that's really how he acted!

Swann does seem awfully ****y! I`m was most impressed with him on the field. Back then without the internet, you didn`t know as much about the paople side of players.

Being an old old Steelers fan I can remember Swanny caught anything near him. I will always remember him on the field and appreciate it.

I dont personally agree with or care for his politics, but I like to remember him as the great ball player he was.

My reason for continuing this whole thing...putting himself in public service is a joke...He doesn't seem to care about former teammates or anyone else buy LYNN SWANN!!

I dislike the sports memorabilia business. A few bad apples ruin it for everyone so I know why it is the way it is. Meanwhile the kids (well adults too) who want the autograph to frame and put on his wall are screwed.

If the story about the 'Webster signing' is true then that is truly appalling. That is the line that should never be crossed.

On the issue of politics in PA...that is a mess. 95% of elected officials there should be kicked out of office. That pay raise they dished out is an embarrassment. That crap is everywhere. Sounds like Swann will part of the problem and not the solution.

For what it is worth - - a few years ago, Lynn was here in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.... He was scheduled for 3 or 4 autograph sessions - - - I was lucky enough to go to a couple of them.... He signed 3 items (mini football, mini helmet and a Terrible towel) at one signing, and a jersey at another.... He took his time to be personable with everyone who was standing in line, and even made a big fuss over my friend's young son who was dressed in a Steelers' warm up suit - - size 9 months.......

I think that everyone is allowed an off-day, and perhaps the rules at the above mentioned signings were not of his doing.....

All I can add to this is that when Swann and Stallworth were downfield, it didn't really matter which one Bradshaw aimed for - - I always knew it was going to be a 'good show'.....

I wish him luck on his campaign..... I still follow Pennsylvania politics and we don't need the "there is no part of Pennsylvania west of Harrisburg" guy who is in there now......

I liked Swann as a player, but never knew anything about him as a person. After reading this, I STILL don't know much about him as a person.

Jim O'brien may have written a book that shows Swann in an unfavorable light, but we don't know how much is true and how much is politically motivated. This wouldn't be the 1st time that lies were told about a political cantidate.

Wether you agree or disagree with Lynn Swann poltically, I'd take Jim O'brien's comments with a grain of salt. This smells too much like a political hatchet job IMO.

a lynn swann autograph can be worth twice as much on e-bay with the #88 signed beside it and these atheletes know it. is the person asking him for a signature or for him to do his taxes? beggers shouldnt be chosers.

my aunt recently encountered pete rose in a cheescake factory in a vegas casino. she asked for an autograph on a napkin but he directed her to a high end shop where he was doing signings if you purchased a gift. she was pissed and refused (cheapest item was $80).

as he explained this was how he made his living nowadays. she did procede to tell him he wouldnt need to worry about that if he werent a crook.

point is most autographs are wanted for monetary value. otherwise a handshake or photograph will do you fine.

Now you made me run and look - - - all of the FREE autographs that I got from Lynn Swann have his name - - - - #88 - - - - and HOF!!!!!!

I'm smilin' now....... :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:


Edited to add - - - don't look for any of that stuff on Ebay from me..... And my kids and Gkids are all Steeler Fans so they won't be selling it to raise money for my funeral, either.....

Let's all agree that when you run for office this is the kind of stuff people on both sides of the political fence look for. How many good, sincere people from either party dont engage in politics because they dont want to get roughed up?

The ebay thing is a good point. i have heard of some jocks who wont sign anything at all because of it. Speaking of ebay....picked up some good steeler things this week.

PENNSYLVANIA - GOVERNOR: Governor Ed Rendell (D) - 51%, Lynn Swann (R) - 41%. (Strategic Vision-R). That was released today, most polls have him farther behind....

Thanks for taking the time to post that info, Lambert. I personally know Frank Caputo - he used to have a card shop here in my neighborhood and was one of my assistant coaches when I had his daughter on my girls' softball team years back and is a very honorable guy. If he said that's what happened, that's what happened. :cool:

While I feel that Lynn's attitude and actions mentioned are somewhat deplorable, it really doesn't shock me as there are a lot of professional athletes, past and present, who have the same shitty attitude. Joe Montana refused to come to his class reunion at Ringgold High unless they paid him a $5,000 fee up front - I got this from the woman who set up the event, as I used to work with her. Sometimes it is an ego thing and other times, it is because they just want to be left alone on their "off time". That being said, though, I've never felt it was right for an athlete to charge for his autograph during his playing days, as they sometimes forget that the fans are their bread and butter in the long run.

However, as I've stated previously - I don't look at a candidate's personal life (as long as they haven't been tried and convicted of a felony, are an axe-murderer, rapist, pedophile, etc.) when deciding upon a candidate to support. Everyone has a skeleton or two in their closets. If I weighed heavily on what a person did or has done in their personal lives which is viewed as "unacceptable" by some, I don't think I would have ever voted.

OK - now back to football. I just wanted to acknowledge and thank Lambert for his efforts here. :smile:

One thing that I want to add to this equation is that ...all athletes have agents..and managers...when we all say that "Lynn Swann said...." or "Joe Montana said...."....there is at least the chance that neither of these guys ever talked to thte people involved but rather a manager gave the "usual comment" that he gives to all reguests for his client to show up. The managers and agents get a cut of all the bookings...so they probably dont care if the people at the other end of the reguest are hurt . In their perception they probably view any event that their client is booked "for free" as money they are not earning. Its not right..and an athlete who is paying attention will nix that type of bad publicity. Thats not to say that either of these guys are or are not tools...but the scenerio I mentioned is definataly a very good possiblity.

That's a very valid point and a reasonable possibility, LLT.

If Swann was up for Nice Guy of the Decade, I'd think twice about supporting him after reading Lambert's and others' posts, but like I said, I'm supporting him for Governor of PA regardless of past behaviors because I feel he is the better candidate of the two and I like his ideas and long term goals for PA. Nothing more, nothing less.

Lambert and I discussed this via PMs and we're cool, though we disagree on our opinions. :smile:

I'm between a rock and a hard place with this election. I do not like Rendell or the job he is doing but I STILL don't know enough about where Swann stands on the issues to vote for him. Most of the fund raising letters I get from him have more football memories than tax cut ideas in them. I honestly don't care if hes the meanest SOB around as long as he gets the job done. I'm leaning towards him just because we are in the same party but that is a real lame ass excuse to vote for someone.

Being that person, I'd like to respond.

I don't know when this book was written. I do know that Swann was a likely cantidate long before he actually declared his cantidancy. If this book was written in the past 3 years, I maintain my position that it MAY have been politically motivated.

Let's look at the examples that you have given.

example 1
Saylor had a story about Lynn Swann

Who is thas Saylor fella? Or is it a Saylor gal?

example 2
Frank Caputo, who owns Caputo's Sports Collectibles in Century III Mall, said, " I heard a story

I heard a story? Sorry, but "a story" isn't a reliable source. Mr Capula may be the most honest man on Earth, but he didn't claim (nor can he) that that "a story" is true.

example 3
Another story making th rounds was that Swann got into a dispute with a Steelers' marking rep

"another story" is as reliable a source as "a story"

example 4
I said "Hi, Mr. Swann. I'm a big fan of yours.' He never even acknowledged my greeting. He just turned around and walked back out. It was a real letdown. I felt so stupid for liking him in the first place.
The fourth scenerio was a statement made by a fan who was meeting Swann for the very first time.

Is "a fan" related to "a story" and "another story"? Sorry, but I can't consider "a fan" to be a reliable source.

These claims may very well be true, but we should also consider the possibility of them being false. We all know that politicians are often liars. Often, a politician's supporters are also more than willing to lie in order to advance the cantidate of their choice.

Please understand that I am NOT saying that Jim O'brien lied when writing this book. I am, however, stating that the possibility exists that he did lie for political purposes. If you want to consider Swann a jerk based on what you've read in a book, that's your perogative. Personally, I'm sceptical of what I read, especially when the sources are "no first name Saylor", His or her cousin "a story", "A story's " brother "another story", and "another story's" illigitemit child "A friend"

Problem here though. If the federal government is going to cut taxes while supporting a war, then the state is going to have to raise taxes to support that infrastructure that the feds no longer subsidize... or if the state doesn't then the county or the township will have to. It's not a matter of cutting taxes as much as it is sensible allocation of existing money; maximizing value, you might say. Over on this side of the state, people love the guy. Swann has his work cut out, if he turns it into an east-west battle he'll lose.

Very good post, Tom. Lynn's stronghold is Western PA, Fat Eddie's is Philadelphia. Lynn is also doing well in the central part of the state and Erie, though heavily Democratic, is up for grabs at this point. I mentioned in another thread that because Philly is so predominantly African-American, Lynn has a half decent chance there of getting some crucial votes in Rendell's back yard. He's been out on the road every day and is going to put on a media blitz right before the election, which is a very smart tactic. Keep that name fresh in people's minds.

I worked with a State Treasurer candidate in 1988 who was down 36 points to her opponent the night before the general election. We never let her get down that night and we felt confident. On election day, she trounced him! You just never know what voters are going to do when they get behind that little curtain. What also bodes in Lynn's favor is that we currently have a Governor who really has done nothing in his 4 years in office. Pennsylvania has become stagnant in growth and it is time for a change, imho. A lot of Demos here in the Burgh are quite upset with Mr. Rendell because he is dragging his feet on the slots license and keeping the Pens here in town where they are beloved. It should be quite an interesting couple of weeks leading up to the election. :cool:

Jim O'Brien has written many Steeler books...The one where I read the excerpts I posted was one of them. Am I to believe that this man has in one way or another covered the Steelers for many years...just to have a political agenda vs Lynn Swann? And as far as my opinion of Swann...it's personal experiences, yes plural, that have formed this opinion. Before you open your mouth, maybe you should establish the facts. Read ALL the information.

And as far as my opinion of Swann...it's personal experiences, yes plural, that have formed this opinion. Before you open your mouth, maybe you should establish the facts. Read ALL the information.

No need to get angry. I merely stated that I wouldn't rely on a single book to form my opinions. I wasn't aware that you've had personal experiences with Lynn Swann. In your original post you stated that you ascertained your information from a specific book. That was the line that I responded to.

Since I'm unlikely to hang out and drink beer with either Swann or Ed Rendell, neither man's personality is of major concern to me. Personally, I'm hoping for a Swann victory in November only because of my disgust with Ed Rendell's decision to disqualify the absentee ballots that arrived late in the 2004 election. I know from experience how slow the mail can be from Navy ships, and hated to see our military personell's votes thrown out. You may be willing to overlook this due to your agreement with Rendell's other policies. I'm not willing to overlook this. This is simply a political disagreement. If this were a political board, I'd be happy to discuss this further with you. Since this is a football board though, can we bury the hatchet and agree that Swann was a great receiver for the Steelers?

Trying to steer this conversation toward the Steelers, I'd like to state that Lynn Swann is my 3rd favorite Steeler receiver of all time, behind Ward and Stalworth. Some of his catches were truely amazing. Without Swann on those 70's teams, I very much doubt that Bradshaw would have been the elite QB that he was.

LambertIsGod58
08-19-2006, 12:59 PM
First, if you had read all the posts in this and the other thread, you would see my entry stating that Swann was a great player...I'm not taking away anything from him there. It's his character as a person. If character doesn't play a part in your and anyone else's voting practices...so be it. I'm stating that it's a very important part of mine. And furthermore, I'm not angry for anything you said. I state my take on a particular issue and don't really care who disagrees. That is their right. And as far as Swann's importance to those teams of the 70's...If he was so important...why did it take almost 20 years for him to get into the HOF....oh wait....let me guess. The can't have too many Steelers arguement...right? Swann and Stallworth were great receivers....but HOF material I'm not so sure.
