    LOL! :D I'm eating crow I guess considering how much I hyped him up before we picked him, and plus I am proud of the job I did creating it :P .

  • This is why I don't like approaching celebrities. I did meet Flava Flav at the airport in Vegas years ago, but he became visibly frustrated (beyond being visibly on some kind of cocktail of hard drugs and prescription medications) as the crowd failed to cease flowing and asking for pictures.

    Still, I just feel like it's a bother and just kind of awkward to be going about your regular mundane business and be asked to pose for photos, have people snap photos of you doing mundane things, etc.

    You're right, he gets paid millions of dollars to play a game because... well... just because!

    I understand that athletes don't want to be surrounded all day by adoring fans making peoples day/week/month/year/life because they took a stupid picture with them. But it seems in this situation he could have smiled and been on his way. Not even get off the phone, lean over, take picture.

    If you're nice to him, politely ask for a picture, I think he should take that picture. If suddenly there's a crowd then yes, I can see someone getting ignored... but just a random guy at a gas station?
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

    And, his comment read to me like some pointed, but benign, humor.

  • Yeah I can understand the line of people that may gather, but 1 guy at a gas station? Dickhead, straight up. He can run for 1700 yards and carry this team, doesn't mean he has to be a dickhead. I've meet some popular people before, never had anyone be a straight up dick.

    What? I dont see the correlation.

    His comment wasn't dickish. It's all in the delivery.

    Post like this are more dickish than anything Lynch did. The entitlement some people judge the world with is comical.

    BTW, have any of you guys seen Lynch on the Real Rob Report? Guy is a different cat. Even with his teammates.

  • Marshawn is very shy. I think that's it more than anything.

    Maybe shy is the wrong word - he's humble and unassuming, but also a character.

    It's cool that you got to meet him.

    I agree too, they get paid millions to play the game they love and that money comes directly from fans. They should have the courtesy to take 60 seconds out of their day to take a picture. If it were a big crowd of people, I could see him being leery about it, but one guy?

    Fans on the other hand don't make that kind of money or enjoy the celebrity, many struggle to make ends meet but unwaveringly support their team by spending hard-earned money on tickets, jerseys and the products that pay for the TV contracts.

  • First thing I thought of was that sounded like Marshawn being Marshawn. He's "a strange dude" I think one player put it one time, but I think he's shy away from the game and not necessarily someone with an obvious sense of humor. It cracks me up thinking he was probably caught off guard and that is what came out of his mouth.

    That's okay Marshawn. You don't have to be Steve Largent off the field. As long as you're Beast Mode on the field, we're all good.

    Not saying its the case, BUT, the whole "they get paid millions to play a game" seems to be jealousy. I dont understand what someone's salary has to do with anything? Why would anyone care how much money someone does or doesn't make? If they make more - so? Why does that factor into anything?

    They're not celebrities, their athletes. They get paid to perform, NOT take pictures or be PC to everyone. If anything the issue is the fans raising people who carry a ball well to diety levels. Because they carry a ball well, they should be better people?

    The bolded part is exactly right. They get paid millions to play the game. They dont get paid to be all chummy and bff's with any fans they happen to run into.

    And I hate to break it to anybody who might think differently... but they dont play for us. Most of them probably couldnt care less about us, or think its silly how devoted we are to them. They play for their family and their loved ones, the pay check and hopefully the love of the game. But not for the fans.

  • lol dont feel bad. my buddy works at nordstroms in bellevue and has met him a few times. he asked for a pic once and got a similar response. after he said no he asked for a handshake though and he gave him one.

    the only hawk ive seen in public is sidney rice twice and i said whats up to him once and he returned it and the second time i just gave him a nod.

  • This reminds me of a time in Vegas, where I met Gary Payton at a movie theatre. He was in the concessions line, and I had just gotten my popcorn. He was on the phone the whole time, and I asked, quietly..."you're Gary Payton?" and he nodded while still on the phone...so I quietly said again "hate to bug you, but I was a huge Sonics fan, I thought you and Kemp were the best"

    He then nodded again and mouthed "thanks" and held his hand out real quick for a fist bump.

    I didn't feel like he slighted me in the least bit. I kinda felt like an ass afterwords for not waiting till he was off the phone, but I was so shocked to see him there, in the least likely place to expect it, that I kinda blurted the question out before I figured I was being rude.

  • I do think most city heroes are held to a higher standard. With that being said, they are human. Have you watched the Real Rob Reports?? Well.. he doesn't even let his own FB (who blocks for him) put him on camera. The guy doesn't like the camera, and that doesn't make him a jerk.

    Yeah, all he does is bring it every friggin game and put his body on the line like few other RB's in the league. I think he's earned our respect by doing his job and has the right to be left alone for a minute. JMO.

  • Fine, they don't owe fans anything but seriously how shitty is that? Sorry but the fans drive player salaries 100%, there is no other source of revenue for the NFL, period.

    Why not give a little something back to the people that support the shit out of you? They should be grateful that they get paid millions and keep a smile on their face everyday that they get the opportunity that they do. I know Marshawn is a little different because he is a little strange, and if he was on the phone he gets a pass for this encounter, but its still disappointment.

    My boss met him in a hotel elevator at the pro bowl one year. Based on my bosses account, he was more or less a dick but also just kindof strange. Perhaps he is just a hard guy to get to know.

    That all being said, what he has done for this team on the field cannot be overstated, so he will be rightfully loved regardless of what he does off the field...

    I don't agree with this. I think approaching anyone while they are talking on the phone is incredibly rude and disrespectful. Who is to say he wouldn't have been happy to sign an autograph if he was off the phone?

    I have met more than a handful of "Athletes/Famous people " and you treat them like every other human being and you would be surprised the respect you will get from them but when you run into them at a gas station of all places the last thing they care about is other people... Phone/No Phone

    As far as their salary they have a product we want bottom line, do we smile to everyone on monday after getting our ass chewed out by our boss No, but we also have a product no one at the gas station gives two sh$ts about...so NO ONE TALKS about it...

    If someone came up to me and asked for a picture with me? That'd be cool.

    You're not asking for change... not even a signature (fuck, pen to paper... so hard) -- You're asking to take a photograph to document the time you met another human being. How ridiculous of a thought is that.

    He doesn't get million dollar checks because he knows how to run with a pigskin in his hand. He gets million dollar checks because he can do that and we'll pay money to watch him, buy stuff with his name on it and watch advertisements in between possessions just for the chance to see him run the ball up the middle again.

    If someone came up to me and asked for a picture with me? That'd be cool.

    You're not asking for change... not even a signature (fuck, pen to paper... so hard) -- You're asking to take a photograph to document the time you met another human being. How ridiculous of a thought is that.

    He doesn't get million dollar checks because he knows how to run with a pigskin in his hand. He gets million dollar checks because he can do that and we'll pay money to watch him, buy stuff with his name on it and watch advertisements in between possessions just for the chance to see him run the ball up the middle again.


    Yeah, but what if it happened 20 times a day every single day? I have no idea if that number's accurate but I imagine he can't really go out into public in the Seattle or Bay area without being asked for a photo/auto/hand shake/convo... and he seems like a bit of a reclusive dude anyway, so I can understand the situation. At least he declined it with a joke, that has to count for something.

    Think about it this way. This guy figured out what he was good at and has managed to make a very good living at it (something we all strive/hope for). Just because in his case it turns out his occupation makes him a celebrity doesn't mean he wants to be, or is good at being, a celebrity.

    If I saw Marshawn I'd melt like a little girl but I would not be offended if he didn't have the time or desire to entertain my girlish reaction. It'd suck but I'd understand and get over it real quick.

    His comment wasn't dickish. It's all in the delivery.

  • Yeah, fans make the players rich.

    Fans spend money on tickets to watch the games.
    Fans spend money on jerseys to wear.
    Fans spend money on all kinds of other things.

    The point is, the fan spends the money to receive a certain product and they get it. Nowhere in that purchase is there an an implication that all NFL players must act as tourist attractions at the behest of fans in public.

    You paid for a ticket, you got what a ticket gives you. You paid for some fabric and stitched on numbers, you're wearing it right now. You're not entitled to anymore just because you think you are.

    Not saying its the case, BUT, the whole "they get paid millions to play a game" seems to be jealousy. I dont understand what someone's salary has to do with anything? Why would anyone care how much money someone does or doesn't make? If they make more - so? Why does that factor into anything?

    They're not celebrities, their athletes. They get paid to perform, NOT take pictures or be PC to everyone. If anything the issue is the fans raising people who carry a ball well to diety levels. Because they carry a ball well, they should be better people?


    No it doesnt make an athelete a better person. They can catch aids, get dui's like the rest of us. The question I have of ANY of you is this....

    If you were a professional athelete or perhaps a famous guitarist, would you stop what you were doing and take a picture with someone who requested one? No, a famous person isnt in any way required to take a picture with anyone.
    Theyre not required to sign an autograph or do anything outside of what their actual job is. I've been lucky enough to meet a few Seahawks through the years and Ive come away liking a few of them more than I did before and some less.
    The one thing I thought of though was what mood was the person in? These are people that have good days and bad days. Like another poster said, maybe he was on a very important call.

    If it were me and someone thought enough of me? I'd take the fuggin picture and be done with it.

  • Hopefully I'll go to bed and dream tonight about this scenario as if I were The Yugoslavian, only my dreams would be so much better. I promise you all that I would've handled this situation with so much more grace. It would've been a major win for the 12th Man.

    I really don't know why...but this made me laugh out loud.
    Thanks Hasselbeck.
    How was this "born in PA - living in NY" Hawk Fan born? At the age of 8 - I decided it was time to "become a man" and follow football.
    So what was the great wisdom filled, analytical, reasoned factor that ultimately led me to the Seahawks?
    Why the awesome uniforms of course !!

  • Ah Hell no, that was a polite dismissal, for Marshawn anyway. I would have told you something far worse. He was pumping gas and talking to somebody he actually knows when a fly started buzzing around his head. He shoulda swatted it.

    Can you imagine how things like this would make you not want to leave your house if you were him? Besides, if you have seen any of Robinson's videos, you know Marshawn does not want to be on camera in private moments.

    If you really want some face time with Marshawn, go to one of the charity events he is part of, there are several.

    Yo, pink, can I get a picture with you? Yeah, put your phone down for a minute and grab this squeegee. Now you start cleaning my windshield while I take a sip of this Big Gulp inside my car. I'll make the #1 sign with my finger, and you can glare through the windshield like I'm being intrusive, and I think I can get us both in the frame. And then once the picture's taken, I'll have part of your soul in my phone. Win win, baby!

  • It's about the player and his personality. I haven't been to TC at the VMAC, but I saw pics where players would go to the fans - unsolicited - and sign autographs. Some players will run to the crowd after TDs and give high fives or throw gloves in the stands after games at the CLink.

    Some will go to the pro shop and sign autographs there too.

    It just strikes as Marshawn doesn't have that out going personality. It's just not in his nature to do it.

    But, when you run into a player that has that type of personality -- um Buhner -- then I'd have a problem
