I agree as if some need an excuse .

 

 

When your go too tight end is the Leader of Murder Inc  & sitting in a cage for shooting a person , Taking troll shots at the owner of our team seems petty & childish .

But Irsay makes it so easy for us. :cheer2:

 

Love Krusty by the way. Your affection for clowns is second to none. Love it.

lol. yes. no doubt. But you are right. What he did in terms of letting Manning go and signing Luck and turning the whole org over deserves to be commended. Perhaps he just needs to sit back and trust his guys and not worry about the fans if the team has a bad showing. There is no way this team will not try hard and be contending as long as Luck is at the helm.

So just because Irsay cares about HIS product that is put out on the field and wanted to let Colts fans know that the product and effort that was put put on the field is not acceptable is your excuse to act like your a kid? I dont really get that. Not a shot at you as a person or a Pats fan, Just an observation. Im also not making excuses for some that have repeatedly brought up Krafts name especially taking the oppurtunity to rub "the Patriots way" statement all in the Pats fans face after the Hernandez debacle. But the fact is still the same, Irsay is the owner he can say what he wants, he was well within bounds of letting Colts fans know that the effort that was given on the field wont be tolerated, The special teams discipline and tackling was bad

The TRUTH is our owner is the teams biggest fan , I'v looked back & read stuff from his early days back in Baltimore although his dad was the boss I felt he was the man , For instance I read a story about the Colts coach Ted M was fired at half time & Jimmy came & straightened out the mess for his dad .

 

I honestly believe he really bleeds blue .  As a fan he & we all realize its only preseason but like all fanatics we expect alot from our team .

 

This is why i love that he is the owner of my team ,we, he & the City all want our team to shine ,  None more than the #1 fan Irsay ..

Sure, he is a big fan BUT he is also the owner. Best not to let the two complicate each other.

 

Kraft is the same way by the way. He was a season ticket for years before buying the team at a time when it was going to be sold to St. Louis. Nothing wrong with being a fan but have to put job as owner first. There was no reason for Pagano and Luck to have answer questions about his tweet yesterday. They are big boys, they know they didn't get it done.

You need to choose a profile picture, so I can create a meme of your profile picture saying "Dear god...", and then post it to threads like this where you are conspicuously absent.

 

Either that, or you need to show up sooner.

 

 

I have taken the plunge into parenthood with my wife through adopting a little baby we named Hadley.  Best thing we ever did and also the most stressful as she goes through a health issue.  Once the health concern is behind us, and it will be soon, I expect to be more visible.

Congratulations on your new addition and best thoughts to you and yours as you work through the stress. I have a baby boy (2nd kid) who is not yet a year old and only a minor surgical procedure he had nearly did me in! He was fine, of course... Dad, well, it took a little longer for ME to recover from it.  ;)   God bless man...

Obviously you guys do as I have seen Kraft's name almost as much as Irsay's (or should I say Ursay's) name on this thread.

That is not even close to the truth. You do realize the entire thread is still visible?

Oh wow. Awesome move for your family, hope all is well with little Hadley. 

 

I'll figure out a stand-in for you in the meantime. :)

Random thread post statistic. By my count there are 44 posts in this thread by what I would call "traditional non-Colts fans."

At least 30 of those posts are from Amfootball.

The majority of for and against Irsay between Colts fans seems pretty evenly/sadly split.

Someone should do a poll lol.

Not even remotely true. Unless you've been reading every 100th word.

There were only 13 counts of the word Kraft in this thread. I'll give myself a little room for error and say 15.

A little under half of those mentions are from Pats fans themselves, and only a few outside of the Pats fans were spoken without directly quoting a Pats fan.

To put that into context, there is at minimum at least 13 mentions of Irsay, or Jim in every page of this thread. So at minimum there is 8x more Irsay mentions than Kraft. Jerry Jones was also alluded to slightly more than Kraft was.

The more you know :).

You said "I have seen Kraft's name almost as much as Irsay's (or should I say Ursay's) name on this thread."

So either it's exaggeration and hyperbole in full effect, or your reading virtually none of this thread lol.

Also not sure that 13 is "a lot" especially when considering Pats fans brought up almost half of those 13. :)

Key word being "almost." I think it is way more than 13 but alas I am too lazy to count ... lol.

Well, by your definition of the word, you were "almost" correct. ;)

Even giving a tremendous margin of error for my reading abilities, there is no more than 20 mentions. I know this because I wasn't too lazy to count :).

And sure there are "almost" as many Kraft mentions, if 13 is almost 104. And that's being generous because I'm only qualifying 13 Irsays per page. There are much much more.

Thank you GP.  She was born 6/30 and we got her on 7/2.  I can feel your pain about surgery - I was a wreck.  The docs found a defect later that week that needed an open heart procdure to fix. Last Thursday was the longest day of my life, and I was in Foxboro for the 2003 & 2004 Colts playoff loses!  ;)  Puts everything into perspective doesn't it?   Take care.

lol. Have you read this thread? Started by a Colt fan I might add. A great many Colts fans are taking shots at Irsay ...

Yes, but you only darken this side of the forum when it's negative news regarding the Colts. Speaking of which, where is quiz boy?

It was the cover story on ESPN. National news tends to be negative. Plus, I don't have a ton to contribute to the threads on player personnel, etc as I don't follow the team. But I do love you guys and the drama that I knew would be here. :)

Man, it sure does... sometimes life hits you upside the head with so much perspective that you never look at things the same again. I'm guessing that's where you are right about now! But good to hear it all went well, and warm thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery. 

 

By the way, 6/30 is a great birthday! (Also mine, and I am more than happy to share it with your little one!)

    • That article was fascinating and inspiring. Thanks for sharing it and thanks to all the people involved in training service dogs.  I had no idea about any of this
    • I think the players being on the field for the anthem started in 2009. He could change that but it probably would not set well with the players and the media could jump "racist" in a heartbeat. This protest looks silly with only a couple players out of the whole team taking a knee.
    • The Indianapolis Colts today elevated tackle Jeremy Vujnovich to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.  Vujnovich, 6-5, 300 pounds, has spent the entire season on the Colts practice squad. He participated in Indianapolis’ 2016 offseason program and training camp before being waived during final cuts on September 3. Vujnovich spent the last two seasons on the Green Bay Packers practice squad. He originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent on January 7, 2014.   Collegiately, Vujnovich started 28-of-29 career games at Louisiana College from 2009-2012. As a senior in 2012, he earned First Team American Southwest Conference honors, Second Team All-Louisiana recognition by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association and Second Team All-South Region accolades by D3football.com after starting 10 games at left tackle. In 2011, Vujnovich started nine games at left tackle and earned First Team ASC honors. As a sophomore in 2010, he earned All-ASC honorable mention honors after starting nine games at left tackle. Vujnovich saw action in one game as a true freshman in 2009. View the full article
    • Clearly the Jags have not lived up to the preseason hype and the Colts are not living up to their expectations. On paper the Jags aren't missing the players the Colts are but the Colts are showing a refusal to die and I see them coming out on top. Both teams need to get desperate to win with the now wounded duck Texans and this an AFC South game. It is impossible to ignore the potential of Lucks talent in a match up like this.
    • I became a Colts fan in 1984 when they came to Indy & took up residence in the Hoosier Dome later renamed The RCA Dome .   We had many up & down seasons eventually we had our first really good season that year Jim Harbaugh became our starting QB  we called him Captain Comeback & our Colts that season the Cardiac Colts it was a thrill ride till the very last play of the AFC Championship Game in 3 Rivers Stadium that year Indiana became a Football State for real it was awesome .   this is a link that you may enjoy ..   http://www.colts.com/news/article-1/COLTS-SEASON-IN-REVIEW--1995/03f1e9a8-74d7-48cd-9023-dce191257e68   Peyton Manning drafted in 1998 was seen as our next great hope & he did'nt disappoint but he did get off to a slow start .   Now with Andrew Luck I feel we are once again in great hands as in 98 our future looks bright ..
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
