OK, my Dad is in the air force. He is currently stationed in Kuwait, with the rest of his squadren, doing nothing in particular. I'm going to the Buccaneer training camp this Monday, and I thought I would surprise them by getting the Bucs to sign a poster or something with a little message to the whole crew, hopefully lifting their spirits after being home only two months since Christmas.
So I've never been to one of these camps before, and I don't know how they work. Could someone who has done this before tell me:
1)Do most players generally stick around afterwards to sign a few autographs?
2)What would be the best way to go about it? Do you think if I explained the situation to a leader like Sapp or Keyshawn that they would get the other guys to come sign it for me?
3)Are there usually a lot of fans at the workouts?
Mean Gene: "You know, I don't think it's a question - Goldberg, I don't think it's a question of who's next, I think it's a question of who's left?" Goldberg: "No, see, that's where you're wrong. It ain't who's left, it's - WHO'S NEXT?"

I'm playing a hunch here because I've never been to a camp before, but I'd bet you'd want to talk to someone besides a player. Maybe someone from their front office, I'm sure it's something you could get done, because of the circumstances, but it's probably not something you could do just by going to the field. I'd give a call to their offices, maybe get in touch with their public relations director and let them know the full situation.

Herm Edwards is a fine coach, and this is from a Jets fan. The cover 2 defense isn't the best in the world, though, so maybe somebody can clear that up. What scares me is the name that's been tossed around for NY: Haslett. Wait and see.
