I guess PFT doesn't like me....darn

Does anyone else have their comments deleted on Pro Football Talk? I called out Florio a while back for that smear article "Colts don't want atheists on their team" after Grigson was asked what kind of men he wanted on his team. His response (paraphrasing here) was something like "high character guys: faith, family, football." It's a line coaches use all the time, my HS coach used it. But Florio blew it up into a big issue. So I called him out on it, as did others. That's when my comments started disappearing. Now I can't even reply with something innocuous without it disappearing. I like reading PFT for NFL news, and sometimes like to comment on stories. I don't try to start fights, but I think Florio has it out for the Colts. Stories like "Colts sell out 85th game" (at the beginning of the season that was a concern but it's not a story anymore, they've sold out for nearly a decade)....or even today, making fun of Grigson's grammar in the "We would try anything to keep Arians" story. I commented to the effect that Arians is a great leader, but his offense nearly got Luck killed this season b/c of the terrible line. And it wasn't coincidence the Colts played their best game when Pagano returned; it allowed Arians to focus soley on the offense. Plus I think Pagano reigned him in a bit, just my opinion. I didn't slander Arians or anything like that. But five minutes later my comment was gone. Oh well, some one over there is butt-hurt when they get called to the carpet.

Yeah I have posts removed all the time on PFT. In fact it's to the point where my posts ALWAYS get deleted. I've called out Florio numerous times in the past ad boom. Censorship. It just adds to the "character" of him and his other "journalists" on that site. Glad to see I'm not the only one. I remember all of the articles you mentioned, too.

I get that it's his site....but he comes off as very childish when he/his staff deletes comments that call him out. I never used profanity, or called him a bad name. My comments were well-thought out (at least in my mind) and reasonable....nothing inflammatory or trolling. But you call him out, rightfully so or not, and you get banned apparently. With all the jabs he takes at teams, he sure can dish it out but can't take it. I think the worst was during the Power Rankings he put out a few weeks back. His comment for the Eagles was that "the players could really use some of those steroids Garrett Reid was taking"....that's just classless.

I don't read Florio if I can avoid it. Keeps me (somewhat) sane. I was convinced that he hates the Colts three years ago.

Yeah I heard that. It's amazing listening to how Saints fans drool and worship Florio when he was one of the first ones to throw them under the bus about the Bounty scandal. I was convinced he hates the Saints, but listening to the fans, you would think Florio shows up to every game. I don't get how they parade around him.

I don't know about you guys, but I'd be very disturbed if my employer made a comment like that.

Wow, I can't believe he would delete yours and leave some of the garbage that others write.  Those commentors are some of the most negative people on the planet.

They always are deleting comments. If you post something totally disagreeing with them and giving a logic point, boom it's gone by the next morning.

    • three things you should never do:   1. Try to be funny   2. Talk about football   3. Reproduce
    • I am not really sure why he hates Peyton so much. I have never asked him. Peyton was born in Louisiana for one and it's not like he prevented the Saints from winning a SB, Saints beat him. Peyton is without a doubt a Top 5 QB of all-time as well with 2 SB wins and 5 League MVP's. Almost every Saints fan I have came across loves Peyton because he was born there and Archie played for the Saints. I like Drew Brees, I think he is a Top 20 QB ever and one of the best in his era. I like the Saints actually and have never disliked that team. I could see fans from the AFC South hating on Peyton because we won the Division every year or a Patriots fan hating him because of his battles with Tommy. 
    • Why even go to another team forum if all you bring is negativity to that team? You know it don't set well with the members of that forum but you do it anyway. It is done with the intent to rub members the wrong way. What does that say about the personality of that person? We have other words we would use for someone like that but really cant be said in this forum. Being concerned or objective is one thing while throwing insults is something else all together. What is the purpose or motive to do that in a teams forum when you know exactly the response you will get? Malice.
    • Regarding Bogie, I like him and we have had some excellent conversations about the history of Football and Basketball and I respect his knowledge. He can be his own worst enemy at times though as he never has anything positive to say about the Colts, puts down Grigs and Peyton quite a bit too. I mean this is a Colts website so I can see why he would rub people the wrong way. You should look at it from the standpoint as well.
    • Titans could win 6 or 7 games (I have them at 6) which would be a huge improvement from 2. Brock isnt going to be any worse than what Houston had, question is will he be much better. Even if he's a little better that could get them 10 wins. I dont see them beating us in Indy again though if Andrew is healthy. Regarding the Jags, there are several people in the media picking them to win the Division believe it or not.

    • Welcome jseg18!!!  We will pretend that you were not even close to being a Niner fan.   No, from Montana and then Young they were fun to watch.  I hope we all have fun this year.  I do not think the Colts are going to be 3rd in the South.....Have fun.  
    • Hello fellow COLTS fans! Well I've been a colts fan for about 15 years. I'm fairly young 25. I am from California. I was almost a 49er fan as I was player orientated. I liked Steve Young when I was a kid because my dads a 9iner fan. Then Peyton Manning happened. We then got Edgerrin James and my pride took off from there. Like most of you fans, I was miserable through those playoff losses to the patriots( dislike anything in Boston since I'm also a Lakers fan). Super Bowl 41 was great. I've been to all of the west coast games for past 10 years, and I've been to LOS once. I'm cut it short, but I'm excited for the 2016 season GO COLTS! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
