Saquon Barkley shows love to fan snubbed by Cowboys’ DeMarcus Lawrence

Chris Pastrick
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley came to the rescue of a fan snubbed on an autograph from DeMarcus Lawrence.

Leave it to a Penn State grad to bring class to a classless situation.

Last Sunday, after the Dallas Cowboys hosted the New York Giants in Arlington, Texas, 11-year-old Kamil Bautista was outside AT&T Stadium hoping to score an autograph or two from some players, reports TMZ.

Along came Cowboys’ defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.

Snubbed. Big time!

As if the walkaway and “get the right jersey, son” comment wasn’t bad enough, Lawrence had to expand on it later.

TMZ reports Barkley will fly Kamil and his family out to New York for the Nov. 10 game against the Jets.

The site says the star running back will give the family the VIP treatment at MetLife Stadium, from a meet-and-greet to autographs from Barkley (of course) along with other Giants players.

Not a bad result, kid.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
