For most Washington Redskins fans, Thursday was a great day. Football was back for not most of the NFL, but for their beloved football team. They were able to see the new and improved Bon Secours Training Camp Facility, as well as Robert Griffin III and the rest of the football team.
That however wasn’t the case for one Redskins fan, who took off work, arrived at the facility at 6am and stayed till about noon. She wasn’t able to get one single autograph from ANY specific player, and it naturally broke her heart.
Obviously the woman is an attention whore, but the question that rises is if this is serious, or if this is some sort of ploy to get something free, such as the VIP Passes the Redskins give out during training camp (which you would hope she does no receive).
By no means is a player required to autograph a single thing a fan hands them, they however do out of respect for the support shown. This of course is more for the kids, rather than grown adults who have been known for getting autographs then turning around and selling them online. Last season at Redskins Park a fan was known for doing exactly that, as he’d bring in anywhere from 10 to 15 things to be autographed.
Her main problem however was being in the wrong area, and had she been to training camps before (she claims to be a life long fan), she should know you want to be at the part of the fence where the players come out of the building, not at the other end (where she apparently was).
Lets just hope the other fans in her area don’t also make these same videos.
