I can't vouch for this myself seeing as how I've never met the man, but there are plenty of people around who wouldn't vouch for how "classy" DG is.

Maybe your personality is causing these "run-ins".

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker (Book 3)

Me and my sister went to lunch with him and Ken Harvey's family after church about 5 years ago. Darryl Green could not stop talking about himself if he tried. Harvey was nice though, but DG was kinda fake............not impressed in the least.

London Fletcher is a famous athlete and yet, I'd imagine if you had lunch with him, he'd want to do more besides talk about himself.

I do agree with your first point though. You'd think fans would be able to correctly spell the name of one of the most recognizable HOFers in Redskins history, and yet apparently that's not the case.

right, i imagine the famous athlete would want to do more than talk about himself, but i imagine the fan may have different wants

I love my Redskins.....but D.G. is a D-bag away from the cameras. My old roomate saw him a while back at a sporting event....cant remember which one.......while wearing Greens jersey....asked for an autograph and was greeted with a rude comment and a turned back.

Why? Because he does a charity and gives and raises money for said charity? Dan Snyder gives money to charity and we know what kind of douche bag he is. I have heard nothing but bad things about DG from the people that have met him in public. Not a single story that didn't end up with him being a douche in some form or fashion.


Also, apparently you missed the Smootsmack DG stories, but I enjoy when he gives stories about how some Redskins acted during their careers. I especially liked his gem about Albert Connell...lol

Sucks to hear. I hate it when I hear stuff like this from fans that have envisioned this icon growing up as this super awesome guy, who played his heart out and gave back to the community, only to meet him and find out he's a huge douche bag and his entire career was for his self glory. It has to be heart breaking almost.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker (Book 3)

I've heard nothing but bad things about Darrell Green in terms of his dealings with the fans. Its never fun to hear that your childhood favorites (or just generally favorite, if you're not as young as me) are a-holes to their fans.

But speaking of childhood, does anyone know if Green was any better with his younger fans or is it just the adults he treats like garbage?

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker (Book 3)

i believe someone asked him for an autograph for his 9 year old when he did something at CSN and he said "what's in it for me?"

so yay on that.

don't meet your idols, you're be disappointed.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker (Book 3)

Back in the early 90s when I was around 11-12, my cousin & I recognized him at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg.

We went to say,"hi" & he completely ignored us. His wife came over to us and kind of guided us away from him.

She talked to us about him being with his family and that they didn't want to draw any attention to him.

We asked if she could just get him to sign our maps... she went over and came back with autographs.

Could have been A LOT more friendly but I could understand on that day why they would not want to be constantly hounded for pics & autographs... but... he the way he ignored us always has stuck in my memory.
