Green is pretty well known as being a prick.

Re: Redskins vs Bucs Post Game Reaction

I was never been turned down for an autograph as a kid, guess i was lucky.

Magic Johnson has to be the coolest guy around. always signs autographs, probably the nicest megastar there is out there. I've asked three separate times and he's signed each time and smiled. I've even had the privilege of getting to meet him on more of a personal level through my dads work. Just a true class act... impossible to dislike him.

Most athletes I've gotten to get autographs from as a kid are really nice guys, or acted like it anyways for me. It really takes a special kind of person to turn down a kid for an autograph in my mind. 5 seconds of writing your name on a paper turns into what will be one of a kids best moments in all of his childhood. I've got a couple other cool autograph stories, but no need to name drop... or write an essay for that matter.

Not really into asking for autographs anymore though, maybe a picture if it's really that big of a deal to me. I just don't hold these guys on the same pedestal i used to as a kid.

Yeah that's how I am, growing up my idol was favre which is weird because I was a skins fan but it's because he's from my home town, anyways I was able to meet him and got a signed football. I'll say this Brett favre really is a good dude IMO, even as I got older I still remembered him taking the time out for me, then I went to a Dallas raiders game around 15 years old and Jerry rice was a total douche bag so they are all different

I dont know why I really dont have a problem with McNabb - well except that he had totally lost any ounce of talent he ever had when he came to the skins - but I really cant hate him for that. As far as his person - I dont know he never really rubbed me the wrong way. I hate............

Skip Bayless

Because when I was around 10-11 years old (many moons ago), I met Green for the first time after a Skins game in the RFK parking lot and I was like "I wear no. 28 for my flag football team because I play cornerback and I'm fast like you" And he playfully said you want to race to that tree? And we did (with Todd Bowles and Gary Clark cheering me on) and I beat him (of course he let me) and it was one of the greatest moments of my life!!!! But he doesn't seem to be that way with anyone else anymore.

As for McNabb as a person well I've heard mixed things and I know I've told you a few things I've heard Matty but I've never really personally met him so I won't judge.

There are a lot of athletes who don't sign autographs but they can't be kind about it. I remember being with a player once. And for the life of me I can't remember who it was, I want to say Miles Austin but I don't think that's right. Anyway, someone asked him for his autograph and he said "Thank you but I don't sign autographs. It's a pleasure to meet you and I really thank you for being a fan" And they shook hands and exchanged some small talk and that was that. And it was totally respectful and fine.

So I mean if you don't want to, either be polite about it like Austin or fake interest like London Fletcher.

That is awesome.

I was just going to post that all this news about DG being a prick is new to me. I am actually shocked. I dont live in the DC area, and just never heard that before. Im just going to go on living and forget I ever found out - he is definitely a Skins legend and it is kind of a downer that he is a dick. Oh Well.

I can respect Miles Austin for that. If you're polite. That's cool. And how do you mean fake interest like Fletcher? I think I missed the story on that one.

Fletcher is all about football. And he's all about his teammates. And that's totally fine. But he's not this friendly, gregarious guy really. He's not like say the Shanahans (Mike and Kyle) when it comes to everyone else at Redskins Park-the cleaning staff, the secretaries, the scouts, etc. He's not happily saying good morning, asking them about their families, seeing if they need anything, etc. (He's not the other extreme-Vinny Cerrato-either). He's just I'm here to play football and that's it. He's not into small talk, he hates, hates all the media stuff. It's just not him. But he fakes it well.

Ok so london fletcher is a dick, darrell green is a dick. Is there ANYTHING else you would all like to let me know before i cry myself to sleep?

I have an Art Monk autographed 1980(?) redskins program or team capsule or something From skins training camp when it was in Carlysle PA. My Dad took me. Monk was a rookie so maybe he was still digging the autographs but if anyone tells me he was a dick too im gonna flip out.

Did you happen to catch the close up of him when RG3 was leading the Skins down the field and he knew he was going to have to kick another one? The dude looked like he was going to cry. I mean he looked like he pissed himself and just wanted to cry - he was so nervous. Funny thing is I absolutely had not a doubt in my mind that he was going to make it.

oh and thank you for that very random yet pleasant story about cundiff.
