    This, after he charged around $100 for autographs and an additonal $80 or so for a picture in Houston. I'm officially in the Reggie Bush corner:

    A lot of people might be astounded that people would be foolish enough to pay $99 for an 8-by-10 autographed picture of Vince Young with their kid.

    But it doesn't surprise me that the well-heeled would spring for that sort of money to buy a photo of their child with a University of Texas football legend. Let's say you've got a kid who has been bugging the snot out of you to take him to some horrible G-rated Disney movie or some other situation from hell that you'd kill to avoid.

    Under those circumstances, $99 to shut the kid up with a visit with Vince Young is a bargain.

    The other good thing here is that if Vince Young's NFL career goes in the dumper, he now has the experience to land a job as a mall Santa.

    It really does chap my behind that people are being charged $99 for a machine-autographed photo of Vince Young, and a T-shirt.

    For $99, I at least want a photo of Heidi Klum. And machine-autographed? Is Vince too lazy to lift a ballpoint? OK, so maybe he's afraid of cramping his wrist and screwing up his passing game.

    I guess I am one of the so called "Vince haters", but I read somewhere that almost all of the money goes to charity. I don't have a link so I don't know if it's true or not.

    You mean even after Reggie charged $150 for an autograph and $120 for a picture through Tristar, the same company where VY signed and took pics?????? Ok, that makes sense..... :brickwall

    I heard today on 610 AM that it is for charity, but I forgot which one.

    You might want to find a new favorite player.
    But why do I get the feeling Young will still be villanized for his actions while some level of an excuse will be made for Bush?

    Where do I file this thread. :hmmm: Ahh yes, of course! Asinine. The perfect high brow word that reeks of ambiguity.

    So now the real agenda comes out. I'm not all that thrilled with people charging to take pen and hand and scribble their name out, but hey, that's the free enterprise system. It's called supply and demand. Your take is very weak. Try again another day, and thank you for playing "bash Vince for stupid reasons". :brickwall
