Murray can now charge for autographs

If all you want for Christmas is Aaron Murray’s autograph, here’s your chance.

For $35.

Murray’s injured knee will keep him from playing against Nebraska in the Gator Bowl, so he has completed his eligibility as a UGA athlete, which means he can now charge for autographs.

Murray, who was selected second-team All-SEC by the AP on Monday, will sign autographs at Georgia Square Mall in Athens, beginning at 1 p.m. on Dec. 14. Tickets, which come with a photo opportunity, will go on sale at 10 a.m., on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Part of the proceeds will go to Extra Special People (ESP), a non-profit that “strives to enhance the lives of children with developmental disabilities and their families by focusing on their abilities,” according to its website.

Murray has signed with Everett Sports Marketing, which has planned numerous events with him, including a youth football camp in Athens scheduled for Feb. 8.

Murray’s Twitter account now reads: “For marketing opportunities please email murray@everettsm.com.”

Why would anyone in their right mind play for a college player’s autograph? Murray ought to pay the kids to take his autograph…he’s done nothing but played for team of chokers. If he gets to the NFL and actually accomplishes something, then worry about autographs. He’ll be like Stafford…another mediocre former UGA quarterback who can’t win the big game.

I think it is so sad when a college athlete is going to charge kids 35 bucks for his autograph. This is what is wrong with making these kids “gods” due to athletic ability. And what is wrong with pro sports. Sad state of affairs. Now if all proceeds were going to a good charity, that might be another thing.
And don’t get me wrong, I love me some football and I think Murray is going to be a good one.
