Thanks for your link SS. I really dislike paragraphs like this one from the story.
"What we potentially have now is an angry owner, who made public announcements, despite not knowing that he may have been at least partially kept in the dark. This is all while his star quarterback is in the 2nd year of a 6-year, $140 million extension, signed in June of 2016, which pays Luck $27 million in 2017."
I say that because it conveys the impression that all owners are greedy & want a return on their investment. Yes, we know as fans that Irsay craves an enthusiastic patronage, jersey sales, ticket sales, & money coming in regularly into Lucas Oil Stadium, but let's not create the misguided perception that Jimmy is heartless & cold about Luck's recovery either.
Why are you calling out our face of the franchise? What constructive purpose does this serve exactly? Honest question.
We all screw up even me & I've stepped in it more then once in my lifetime. Seriously, creating the misguided rhetoric that Jimmy is either overwhelmed, deceptive, or self absorbed is beyond shortsighted. Do you really think an owner who has been so forthcoming about his ongoing ordeal with alcohol & painkillers with his fanbase would intentionally lie to them? I don't because when you hit rock bottom & are that candid publicly about personal demons that screams sincerity to me. Now, perhaps doctors misinterpreted symptoms & at most, Jimmy was just overly optimistic & wants to win & put a quality product on the field. That's my take on the situation.
