  • At the games last night, everywhere I turned I saw a Tebow fan. They were either wearing a Tebow Broncos jersey or a Tebow Gators jersey. It was amazing!

      The writer says it's a no-no for writers / photographers to get autographs. I'm wondering how often that happens.
      It is a HUGE no-no.

      The solution here is simple though. The problem is that some of the players, and the NFL, make money off the signatures, so they don't want a solution.

      At Mile High, we used to just wait by the players' cars to get autographs. Then we got Infestco at Mile High, and now they're roped off.

      We had a fan fair. It used to be two full days. Then it was 1. This year... It was none.

      Even at the stadium practice this season, not all the players were signing things, and almost none did for very long. 10 minutes or so, tops. Orton and Tebow were out there the longest. Orton was the first one out and Tebow was one of the last to leave.

      But that's it. That was the only public opportunity for the fans to get autos this season.

      But the team store sells autographed stuff. A shirt with the right signature can go for $1500 bucks.

      I have no idea what my Tom Jackson jersey is worth to someone who wants it. I wear it though which really pisses the greedy folks off that want to buy it from me and resell it. They get truly pissed when I smoke a cigarette while wearing it.

      It's mine you bastards!

      Imagine if they realized my T-shirt was signed by Elway and my hat by Stokley. AND I SLEEP IN THEM HAHAHAHAHAHA!

      Eat it, money-grubbers!

      Ahem.

      Anyway... The NFL and the players make money off those autographs. That's why they're tightly controlled. The more autographs of a player there are out there, the less they're worth (with a couple of exceptions).

      The NFL is taking steps that at least to my observation seemed specifically intended to ween the public off of the autograph habit so that the only place we can get them is at the store or at special functions we have paid to attend.



      Anyway, the solution is pretty simple. The problem is that none of the people that could implement the solution actually want to solve the problem. The worse the problem is, the more money they make.

        "He's been productive, certainly," Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said of Orton. "But I tend to think about the quarterback relative to wins and losses, third down and red zone. (Sunday), we weren't very good on third down or in the red zone and we lost the game."

        • I'm not too surprised he was cheered when he came out as he is an All American Boy type. Popular everywhere.

          But why the Boos?

          • the boos were because his last game as a Gator was the Sugar Bowl blowout against Cincinatti...he was also known to give Ohio State fits on occasion

              • How 'bout this one--Broncos PR had to eject a couple of Cincy area "press" from post game locker room--asked for Tebow autographs on passes!
                http://twitter.com/broncos_sacco

                Tebow jogged onto the field to loud boos - those Ohio State and University of Cincinnati fans remember how he demolished their teams in bowl games.

                Tebow noticed.

                "Yeah, I heard it," he said, chuckling. "It got me more excited to go out there and play."

                The sequence may explain the bloody scratches and bruises on the left side of Tebow’s hip and back. Asked how hard he was hit, Tebow said, “Not as hard as the feeling of having a fumble, that’s for sure.”

                Tebow said something emphatically in the huddle - his head bobbed as he talked. Then, he completed a 5-yard pass on a rollout.

                He didn't do much until the final drive, which ended with that throwback scramble for a touchdown. He ran over Hebert, leaving an orange mouth guard lying on the field and Hebert woozy on the ground.

                • I was there and I saw alot of Tebow fans. I thought he did ok for his first NFL game but am curious to see what he could do vs a 1st team, or even 2nd team defense!

                    He was also playing with the 3rd team....so it evens out. It was fairly obvious the rest of that offense was 3rd team. But I agree...it will be interesting to see what he does with and against 1st and/or 2nd teamers. Hopefully we'll get a chance to see that this pre-season.

                    Glad to see all the Tebow fans. I'm sure that'll be the case at every game. He's got a lot of fans out there.
