Ezekiel Elliott’s stiff arm is in mid-season form.
At least for some fans on Saturday afternoon.
The Dallas Cowboys’ running back was at the Amon G. Carter Exhibit Hall signing autographs as part of the National Fantasy Football Convention.
Problem is Elliott arrived much later to the autograph session than was expected, leaving some fans in line for over two hours. Waiting long hours for an autograph, especially for someone as popular as Elliott, isn’t out of the ordinary.
Fans were mostly irked that Elliott would only sign his own merchandise, which included a shirt, which fans could buy for $25.
Most only learned this after previously being told they could have two items signed with no stipulations on the type of items.
“I spent $3,000, I bought a booth, I bought a legends pass, and I waited two and a half hours and I couldn’t get an autograph,” said Roberto Cartagena, who came in from Los Angeles for the event. Cartagena, who has a company called Sports Libs, which combines rapping and fantasy football, bought a $1,900 booth and $1,000 Legends pass for the convention. He bought two Dallas Cowboys mini helmets expecting to get Elliott to sign them to use as a giveaway on his website but was denied.
