Would you ask an enforcer for a signature if...

Lets assume you'll meet an enforcer after hes lost a fight and the game, having to chance of asking him for a signature?

I mean, imagine standing in front of a Parros, Big Mac or Scott when they are pissed, sounds scary right?

Personally I still would, the worst thing maybe them saying no or not yet.

The vast majority of enforcer types are the nicest people you'll meet.

This. Eric Boulton is one of the classiest guys you could ever meet.

As if they're going to punch someone in the face for asking for an autograph? Right...

Hmm...yes I'd still ask. I'm sure most of them don't get too mad after losing a hockey fight, most of the time they both get up smiling after it's done.

I asked Eric Godard to pull my jersey over my head at the Winter Classic Alumni game...he didn't look amused.

I doubt any enforcer would refuse a fan a signature because they lost a fight. Like another poster stated, enforcers are one of the nicest people off the ice.

Even after a bad night, most athletes don't seem as pissed off as people might think. I don't think I would want an enforcer to sign my jersey, since I don't like enforcers. But I would sure ask for a picture.

I know its more for his legacy, but you don't like enforcers? Seems like the opposite to me

I'm not the signature-seeking type, but if I was I certainly wouldn't. Eric Godard is definitely one of the nicer Penguins, as were Georges Laraque and Steve McKenna before him. ****, I have Francois Leroux's autograph somewhere.


The only hockey player I've ever met that seemed legitimately mad at the situation after a loss was Dick Tarnstrom...and fighting had nothing to do with that.

I've denied players the opportunity to sign my jersey.

Didn't an enforcer sign an autograph while in the penalty box after losing a fight?

If he looked visibly upset, I'd steer clear.

Certainly. Even if he got totally demolished, I'd give him props.

The only player I'd never ask for a signature from is Dan Carcillo because I can't stand the guy.

From what I've heard most enforcers are pretty nice anyway.

Seriously?

If so, then I can perhaps understand why he didn't look amused. He was probably thinking "WTF??"

Not if it's Rypien

IF I liked the enforcer and if I gave a damn about autographs then yes, I would

Absolutely. I'd rather ask an Enforcer for an autograph or photo on a bad day than ask a superstar on a marginal day. Egos are weird things.

You do realize that not all fights are because someone hit their teammate in way that the fighter thought was dirty. A good amount of fights are between to enforcers agreeing to fight to try and get their team wound up.
