Wow! Somebody gets it. I wasn't going to get into the HOF thing in my post cause that wasn't the original ? But since it was brought up.....this is one of the biggest myths. Correct, you don't go in with a specific team. They list all the teams you played for.

What really surprised me when I visited there in 2009 was how many players were in Canton that were still playing because of records they had set! Tony G already has a boat load a stuff there, so does Favre, AP and on and on. Quite interesting.

I wanted him to stay, but he got his wish and a playoff win. Let him retire with that win that he wanted so bad. If he comes here another year, then yeah he can retire here... but you might as well just retire with the team you are under contract with...

Not my experience. I met him in a parking lot in Riverfalls, WI @ TC and he couldn't have been more rude! Totally blew me off and told me to get out of there.
I spent $140 on a jersey, drove 3 1/2 hours one way just to go up there and get his auto that year and in :30 seconds he tore me down.
Then in a bar late that night I got to here from this gorgeous, big chested blonde how he signed his cleats and gave them to her that night. Yea, he was a great guy.
I've gotten over it, except for when I read stuff like this, then old feelings come out. I try to remember all the great plays he made for the Chiefs and the good times me and my son had watching him cause he was my sons favorite player.
I have stopped trying to get auto's (in person anyways) since then and just leave that for the kids. It was pretty demeaning to have someone do that to me as a 40+ year old. Not going to put myself in that position again.

I know several dozen people that ran into him post game and had the exact opposite experience. In fact heís known as one of the few Chiefs that would refuse to sign autographs or even acknowledge the presence of fans.

About the only person Iíve talked with that got his autograph was on this board and they basically had to plead with him to get it.

Ya I bumped into him at Whole Foods a few years ago and my then 5 year old son tried saying hi. He wouldn't even acknowledge my son was talking to him. I understand the not wanting to be bugged in public places but he could have at least said sorry kiddo, not now.

as a player, I think signing him for a 1 day deal to retire as a Chief would be cool.
one of the best players the Chiefs have ever had; one of the best draft picks; the best TE in NFL history.....awesome player.


from a personal standpoint, I've heard from many people that he's a dick. the one time my wife and another copule we went out with ran into him - was a complete dick.

too many 'he's a dick' stories for it not to be true. after we bumped into him (and he barely acknowledged us...which is fine, but there are ways to do it right IMO) I wondered to my buddy "Man...did he kinda seem like a dick"? we debated and came up with nearly every excuse why he wasn't.
But after hearing all these stories, it must be true.

I think the signing with a team for one day and then retiring is one of the dumbest things in sports.

We know your legacy and who you spent the most time with. One day doesn't mean a thing.

Does anybody look back and is thankful if Jerry Rice retired as a 49er? Oh nobody remembers? Yeah me neither.
