    Top rookie offensive impact player

    This is the first time in many moons when the Colts W-L record is anybody's guess. So far nobody is complaining but I guess that will change when the season starts.

    Colts working out QB Cody Keith

    I think the reason for working with several QBs is per the comment below take from Colts Wire. This is the first I have heard of the "chip" on Lucks shoulder and I am puzzled as to why this was not found early in his injury examinations. “I think he’s got a little bit of a chip on his shoulder to prove some people and naysayers wrong,” general manager Chris Ballard said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, per Alex Marvez of Sporting News. “That’s a beautiful thing with a quarterback that I think is top five in this league.”

    Legalized Sports Gambling Is Coming

    To those that say this will not impact non-gamblers I'll throw this on e thing out to consider. Example: your friend, relative, spouse or whatever loves to gamble. That person hits a bad streak at a time when bills are due. What does that person do? Bum money from friends or co-workers? Pawn something valuable in their home? Steal something to sell? Sell the car and buy a cheap used one? So what I am getting at it can indeed impact friends and loved ones. The word "gambling" implies either side can win. To me it says, "only you are gambling, not the house."

    Don't say "shooting." They shoot lame horses.

    Legalized Sports Gambling Is Coming

    Here are a few points I am reading on this: -Not all states will join in. -Non-betters watch 15-16 NFL games annually while betters watch 45-50 (sponsors will love this) -A college player is more likely to throw a game than a well paid pro. -The American Gaming Assn. states illegal gambling is about 150 billion dollars per year. Legal betting could be much greater. -The CEO of Draft Kings estimates a 15-20 billion dollar increase in revenue if the majority of the states get on board.

    Even if they are not rigged in the social media everything is suspect.

    You bring up a valid concern, adding a fumble by a team or third and one and the runner falls down before making the one yard. Pardon the interruption just brought up baseball umpires on balls and strikes calls. Will they be safe to leave the parks? There are hundreds of things to bet on in one game. Think about it. instant replay will have to be involved in everything now to avoid riots!! What about auto racing?!
  8. "WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a federal law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports in most states, giving states the go-ahead to legalize betting on sports. The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. The 1992 law barred state-authorized sports gambling with some exceptions. It made Nevada the only state where a person could wager on the results of a single game. One research firm estimated before the ruling that if the Supreme Court were to strike down the law, 32 states would likely offer sports betting within five years." Think about this, presently there are talk shows airing constantly along with the internet. What impact will this have on betting? One example, a typical round table discussion like we currently have and they consist of predictions and opinions. How can we have there types of shows when they can easily sway waging? One slip of the tongue could easily change the odds like injuries for example. Secondly, this could turn pregame shows in to nothing more than "how do the odds makers see this game?" Third, what will the impact of nationwide gambling be on college players being entitled to a portion of the money? This could be a real hornets nest.

    Why is Nelson listed as G/C on Colts Roster?

    Correct, His versatility is a major plus for him.
  10. It's a cash deal. He is worth 11 billion =11 million X 1,000.

    The Denver Broncos

    Chubb & Miller on the edges......... ouch! I loved watching the Denver D squash New England.
  12. To the Colts 2018 offensive line, remember the police motto, "Protect and Serve".

    Roethlisberger not happy with Rudolph pick

    Seems odd this is coming from a long time veteran. What benefit is he reaping from sounding off on this subject? Is he thinking of himself over the welfare of the team? What other positions/players don't meet up with his demands? Could be he is going through the "We can't beat New England in critical games" syndrome like the Colts lived through for so many years?

    Daily dose of optimism for Andrew Luck's return

    Well I reckon that is up to #1 the doctors and #2 Luck. I'd rather see him lighting up the scoreboard next year than him sitting on the sidelines holding his shoulder this year.

    Don't care when he returns as long as he returns, many good years ahead of him. It is not like the Colts are going to the Super Bowl this coming season if he returns so rest ad take care just as he is doing.
