Sometimes, I think I'd take Jerry Jones over Jim Irsay... And that's saying a whole lot.

I think the photo is pretty funny.
 
The guy is an owner of a very successful NFL franchise. Why not go out and celebrate? I would be more worried about him if he didn't do anything.
 
Granted recently he has looked worse, it could have been the stress from the past couple years.
Think maybe you guys are reading too much from a picture?

"sigh"  really?  why?

 

Irsay more or less took ownership of the team in 1995 after his dad had a stroke.  Since then the Colts has missed the playoffs a total of four times.  As a fan what more can you ask for from an owner?  He has shown the courage to make difficult moves that has made the franchise better. 

 

Frankly I think fans are extremely emotional and that's where any honest dislike of Irsay comes from.  Look back at this past off-season for example.  When he fired the Polians (a move most fans wanted) he was great.  When it look like he might not fire Caldwell (a move fans did not want) he was an *.  When he did fire Caldwell he was back to being great.  Then when he released Peyton he was back to being an *. 

 

Irsay has proven to be one of the best owner in Sports and I am not sure what else people would want form him.  Yes he might be a little eccentric but he is beyond charitable to the community and has proven he will do whatever it takes to put a winner on the field for fans to enjoy.   That's all you can ask for from an owner of a pro-sports team.


Thank You Peyton! I look forward to the day you come home and we get to do this good bye thing right!

I became concerned about Jim during his press conference welcoming back Pagano - the comparison got me worried -

Ok, I have heard the talk on ESPN, PFT, etc. all the time about Jim being a "drunken so-and-so" or something of the like. I don't think that. He battled a painkiller addiction in the 90s, and reportedly has been clean for over 10 years. "Clean" can mean different things to different people. For EXAMPLE (emphasis), he may still have a drink now and then, but probably doesn't take pain pills anymore. But combined with recent videos of him, most notably the latest of him dancing with Pagano, as well as the picture below, makes me worry a bit. I don't think he has relapsed, nor do I think he's the drunk that his father was. That's where most of the "drunken so-and-so owner" talk comes from, people that remember his father and not Jim. But he tweeted this pic last night, and it was posted on Jim Rome's FB page. He certainly looks goofy (what's new?), but he also looks really thin. Maybe he's getting back into shape? But the past several years seem to have taken a toll on him. I don't pretend to know what it is (illness, relapse, etc.), but it does worry me as a fan. I hope he is ok, and this photo was just him being his typical eccentric self.

Any chance this photo is of him on New Year's Eve? If so then this is perfectly normal for most people who enjoy alcohol on occasion. However, the day things start to go south for him will be a sad sad SAD day. I enjoy his closeness to the community and fans.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like, being rich and famous and everything you do, everything about you is constantly dissected and psychoanalyzed. 

 

Maybe Jim was laughing his butt off before the picture was taken, thus making his face appear red and scrunchy? Maybe he had a few beers? Maybe he was working out just prior? 

 

PS: Is that a painting of a nakey woman behind him? Naughty Jim, you purveyor of pornography you.

I think what some are seeing(including me) is that Irsay is looking really frail and slumped over all the time. I have been noticing it for a  while and was wondering if others had noticed it. Now I know I was not alone. Jim does not look good and he has changed drastically in the last few months. Hope it's nothing serious, but something is going on with his health.

Never seen a hotel with pics like that on the wall. 

 

Hope surgery goes ok and he can manage the pain without relapsing. 

Was more just postulating an alternative theory for fun...you know, like CSI...

Oh come on you guys gotta love Irsay. It's hilarious seeing him on twitter and posting funny stuff. I like him cause he's a funny guy.

 

 

He and Jerry Jones should get together and go drinking one night, I'd pay to see that!

Seeing these two photos side by side,  I see a definite change in 9 months timespan.   Not judging, or speculating, just stating the fact that he looks more frail in the December photo.  I hope he is really okay.  One thing is for sure,  It's definitely been a year of roller coaster emotions.

Did anyone see Jim's latest Tweet? I like the guy (in all honesty), and I'd be a bit concerned:

Jim Irsay ‏@JimIrsay
With a 1pm game,when is the proper time to crack that 1st brewski? Is 7am a little too early or does the playoffs allow for early prep?

He looks like he's drunk.  Wasn't Kraft a big time boozer when he first bought the Patriots?

Not that I'm aware of at all . But hey, way to show less concern for your owner and take a cheap, unsubstantiated shot at someone else.

Good points brought up it seems like he drifts away from his twitter and at points during the season I wondered why he basically stopped tweeting. Thought it was bc he wanted to take on a more serious tone after our coach's diagnosis.

 

I'm wondering why he NEVER tweets song lyrics anymore, even on saturday nights which is clearly his favorite time of the week (this always made me chuckle because when you're Jim Irsay every day is saturday).

I just think he wants and likes us fans getting after it. Doesn't necessarily mean that he is partaking. I know when I slowed down on drinking I liked to hear about my friends drinking to almost live bicariously through them--sounds silly but it gave me a laugh when I was trying to quit drinking so much.

 

Irsay is no different. He's fired up about today like us, back in the old days it might have involved a flask for him but now he's just excited by living through our excitement. LET EM LIVE!
