    Nick Barnett is suppose to be at his High School today in Fontana, only 2 minutes from my house. So my son and I are leaving soon, I will let you know what happens. Hes going to be there for a meet and greet, so I am hoping to get his autograph on a miniature helmet that I have also to take pictures. I am excited.

    We went, but it looked funny because they were setting up food and lots of tables, so we went inside just to inquire about it, they said that Nick Barnett just landed at LAX in Los Angeles and that he is running behind, then we talked to someone that was really rude, we just wanted to know if it was a meet and greet, was he going to talk. She said it was for his family, I said then why was it in the news paper, she told us to wait outside while they were setting up, she wasnt nice about it either, I said well if its for his family then I want to know and we would go home, she pointed again to go outside. So we left, I will wait til Ed comes home tonight and we will run back over there, it looks to be along meet a greet so maybe if we are lucky he will still be there.

    Geez....why would they list it as such if it wasn't? Doesn't make sense.
    You should have dressed as a waitress and snuck in!
    Did you finally get to see him? If so, you should have told him how RUDE the "help" was!

    Very disappointing that you were treated like that. Was this an official Packers event? If so, you should email the PR department and let them know what your experience was.

    The only mention of it was a paragraph in the local paper's sports page that I told her about. One of the columnists briefly mentioned "want to meet an NFL star? Nick Barnett will be holding a meet and greet..."

    A follow-up article today about the event said that he was the first inductee into his High School's Ring of Honor and that's what the event was for. Seems it was put together very last minute. My guess is that the newpaper columnist just didn't have all the info - whether it was invitation only or public.

    Still - I told Heather to write a sappy whiny letter to Nick so maybe he'd feel bad and send her something :D

    Agreed with Nodak.
    There's no reason for you to receive this crappy attitude, especially if it was an official Packers event. That's not a good way to keep fans.

    Photocopy the article too and date it and note what paper it came from and include that in the letter to Nick.

    I was a little disappointed, being it was in the newspaper the way it was stated I thought it was a public thing, and even talking to the high school coach who was very nice he didnt say it wasnt for the public all he told me was that Barnett was running late so I thought it was okay to stay until I went into the place and there is where I ran across some workers setting things up. I dont think they knew what was going on, I wished I would have stayed now, but I just didnt know what to do so we left. But I am going to write a letter to Nick Barnett, does anyone know how to get his address, I know somewhere in the Packers website I would think. I dont care if he sends me anything I just want him to know how I was treated there. I was just a fan that wanted to meet and get his autograph that was all. OH yeah and a few pictures..LOL...but I would have just been happy to meet him is all, would have been so cool. Oh well things happen for a reason.

    I didnt keep the paper it was in so I cant send it. :(
