Recommended Posts

Runs from the 27th of this month up until the day of the big game. Is anyone going? I just bought tickets and am pretty excited about it. Free autograph's, games, etc. for those of you don't know what it is. It's like Fan Fest on steroids. :p

 

Anyway, I wonder who's going to be appearing. If any of you are going and have any more info. on it feel free to share, eh.

i'm probably going on the third, the day before the big game. it would be double sweet if the saints were in it.

 

i went to the nfl experience before in 2003 and met deion branch (no autograph, but did get some video of him). it was an awesome thing and i would like to do it again and see if i catch another future superstar. there was a booth of how footballs were made, also about gear and a ref's corner, along with games. we also saw to playing a player's tourney of nfl gameday 2003 i think. espn was also there. for those of you that have never been, it's going to be a wonderful day for you all.

I wanna find out whom is signing when before I decide to go or not. I have gone a couple of times in the past and enjoyed it alot when I was younger. I got some great autographs from jim brown to marino to sayers and elway to bledsoe.

 

Always an enjoyable time and good card show too.

 

 

I am hoping Brett Farve will do a signing one of the days. I would really enjoy getting him.

 

I am also hoping for Andre Reed and Thurman Thomas to add onto my Jim Kelly Helmet

I went twice the last time the Super Bowl was here and again when it was in Tampa. It's a can't miss event. Great fun. I don't care much about getting autographs, but there are plenty of players signing. I like the games. The punting, passing, kicking, and receiving zones. There was also a Sony Playstation tent that had all the games, contests, and almost everybody got a FREE game. I recommend strongly going on Feb. 1. This will be the slowest day. The lines can get a little long otherwise. It's also great fun for 7-14 year olds, so take along your brother/sister, or nephew/niece. I assume all fathers will take their kids. It's held right in the parking lot of Joe Robbie Stadium.

I went to this way back in the day...I was probably like 14 or so. And I was next in line for the QB challenge, when in strolls Warren Moon and Drew Bledsoe for some kind of news segment. And, of course, the news doesn't want to show them throwing bad passes, so they do take after take waiting for both QBs to look good. But they keep missing their mark. Again and again and again and again. I must've waited for 45 minutes for those bastards to finally get the job done.

 

One of my friends was lucky enough to be ahead of me in line and he got to throw next to them that entire time. I forget exactly how it worked, but people went in there in groups of 6 or so.

Well, that's helpful...

 

I called the number the NFL provided at the bottom of the NFL Experience page for info. on who would be appearing this weekend and they weren't able to tell me anything I didn't already know. Awesome. I'll check back in mid-January as they told me to do in the recording. :rolleyes:

 

Has anyone been able to get any dirt on possible player appearances?

I called the number which the NFL provided for updates on the event (including player apperances) which is 1-888-635-2273 (or 1-888-NFL-CARD) and they gave me NOTHING. The voice recording said to check back in mid-January for updates. It's the 24th. I'm aggrivated. This would have never happened under Tagliabue's watch! :nono

We're going Sunday @ 4pm.

 

I have never been to a NFL Experience. How exactly is it like? Does it take place inside the stadium instead of the parking lot? What kinds of games are there? How do the autograph sessions work?

 

We have our tickets on will call. Will that be a problem if it's outside the stadium?

 

Thank you!

It's going to be my first time also, but they did have a special section in the Herald yesterday describing events, exhibits and what not. They'll have games where you can kick an extra point, catch a punt, throw the ball, etc. Should be fun. I'm not sure how the autographs work though. Hopefully they don't make you go through a process where you have to get a ticket for a certain session. That would suck. :thumbdown

 

EDIT:

 

Players Appearing Saturday:

 

Will Allen

Ronnie Brown

Sinorice Moss

Jevon Kearse

Zach Thomas

AJ Feeley (LOL)
