    I came across this article and can't help but feel the writer is overstating the problem, or potential problem. I'm curious to hear what those who have been attending training camp feel.

    The big dudes pushing little kids out of the way is an even bigger problem at the autograph line. :(

    I hadn't thought about that ... but I was thinking it couldn't be any worse than baseball fans going for ball in the stands. A couple years ago when Bonds and McGwire were setting records I seem to recall some of those battles for a baseball getting out of hand - though they were pretty much all adults and no kids, looking for a souvenir they could sell for big bucks.

    Isnt there an assumption of risk at a football event? Meaning lawsuits would be difficult.
