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.
