Default Alex Morgan (Soccer) Signing Rant

Went to an Alex Morgan signing at a local grocery store. One autograph per person per ticket. So I got eight tickets (hey they were free). Went up the first time and she signed three photos for me. One 16x20, and two 8x10s (one personalized). Got out of line then went back into line. Maybe 20 people behind us the agent comes up to us accuses us of wanting to sell the photos, lying to him about having them for personal collection then kicks us out (after we told him we would be more than happy to go to the end of the line so others could get their autographs. Had it so everyone was staring at us when we got out of line. Just a total #@#@#@#@#@#@#@. End of rant.

Boy, that'll teach him if you sell the photos.

And how is that all Alex Morgan's fault?

People who go to free autograph signings get greedy. It's free, so who cares if they cut you off at 3 autographs? What do you need 3 for anyway?

Haha I want the money that it cost me to print the photos and I figured I would maybe sell one of them to cover that and I'm just in a ranting mood haha. It's a bad image on her by him. Apprently he wasn't only us who he kicked out though after I called the store.

and this is exactly why you got kicked out...

they have every right to do so. they cut people off most of the time without getting anything signed and you actually managed to get 3 and complain? get real.

8 tickets just because they're free seems like reason enough to kick people out, and then he was justified if you are selling them.

I had plans to bring my volleyball buddies but they couldn't go. Like I said though I'm not upset that I didn't get all my photos signed etc I am upset that he made of scene of it while other people were doing the same exact thing

I don't see what you have to be mad about. Alex Morgan is one hell of a soccer player, and if she did 3 for you, your one lucky guy. Man, I'm happy with one Alex Morgan autograph, some of the novice collectors don't have any. Getting 8 autograph tickets does seem a bit much don't you think? I don't get where you come off with being mad at her.

Don't get angry at her for something her AGENT did. His/her whole goal is to get as much money for his/her client as possible, and probably benefits from auto deals and the like - blame that particular individual's greed. And now you're going to get even by selling a couple? Don't make the d-bag look like they were in the right here.

Sorry I missed the post until now.

This really is the entitlement generation. You didn't get your way (isn't 3 enough, jeez), so you throw a temper tantrum. You come off like a massive baby.

Can everyone calm down please? I was just upset by the way her agent talked to me and treated myself and my two buddies that were there
