  1. Wow, that is nice to hear that Papa John's management saw fit to recognize Amy for all her years of service & dedication to the company. No job is insignificant & I'm sure that there's an artform to folding that many boxes over the years. I hope Amy was touched by all the well deserved attention she was given for her hard work, steadfast loyalty, & sense of team cohesiveness. Delicious pizza, thirst quenching refreshments, relaxing music provided by Gramz & Ron, & a roomful of proud people. Way to Go Amy! Thank you Gramz, Ron, & all the people who make disabled

  2. I really like this reminder. I want to add it is not fun in the least being away from friends that you develop on this site. Being away means missing out on the great people and posts. Being away sucks in the off-season let alone when the real stuff is here. There is nothing like being on here on game day whether in chat or in a game day thread!!! I am on nearly every day, and want to say there are varying levels of knowledge. I encourage new posters to read a lot of posts before starting your first thread.

  3. *- You have no clue as to what took place. It was a joke that was played on the Steeler fan by his friend and the coach. The Steeler fan got to meet a couple of coaches after practice and got a free Luck jersey that he gave to his friend. It would be smart for you to know you're facts before running you're uninformed mouth. The steeler fan was told he would be escorted out by a joking Pagano. It was all done and said in fun with a touch of sarcasm. How dare you talk about the Colts fans after the way outside fans are treated in Pittsburgh. I was there a few years ago for a game and got threate

  4. Being a student of history myself, having a Masters degree in American History, I am well aware the bloodshed spilled in this country & young Republic to preserve & protect our civil liberties. I know what "shared sacrifice" & paying the ultimate price really means. I am also intimately aware of what guilt over survival really means among veterans too. Why did I live & my buddy standing right next to me drop? To me, honoring veterans is more than a parade or salute of gratitude. When our men women come home from duty without limbs & brain trauma, does our citizenry & f

  5. I find those comments from players both disappointing and disturbing. My daughter is friends with several college football players and she says they have the same reaction as these NFL players. So, it's a very good thing that these punishments included players. A solid reminder to them that yes, you will be held responsible for what you do. Sorry guys but it comes with being an adult

  6. I just want to say I am a woman and I'm not jumping ship! I don't know why that comment was even made but it irritates me. I have stated in many posts I am a colts fan no matter what. It does not matter what happens, I will be loyal to this team and will die a colts fan. I wish fans would not turn on each other and just let it be. To each there own. Can't we all just get along?

  11. I am sorry but I have been a die hard fan since the Johnny U days back in Baltimore. I have never heard a professional athlete use the excuse that he hasn't learned the playbook yet. Running is a lot of instinct too and all Trent has to do is go home and look at the films. He runs into a pile up and never hits the hole. He is paid millions and its time he stepped up stopped using excuses about the playbook. I would hope the Colt's would have tested his intelligence before trading for him also and if he was that slow to learn they would have passed. Let Boom Herron get a chance. At least he hit

  12. Trent just doesn't seem to have the speed to hit the holes that our line can only hold for a fraction of a second apparently. I know our line is not very good at run blocking and perhaps we need to rethini our offensive line coach if it is not the talent that is at fault. Herron just appears to be faster and quicker than Trent, just like Donald Brown was last year. If we made a mistake on Richardson, we need to just bite the bullet and start Herron and use Richardson on short yardage situations where his size will be to his advantage instead of making him just too slow.

  13. Wow! Maybe you should not be so literal. I realize he cannot be stolen from them and they can match any offer (transition tag). If you read the post, I also said that it would take a deal that the Browns would not want to match, which would be a crazy offer! I also talked about it possibly being smoke, and that free agency filled with rumors, I NEVER said it would be a smart move by the Colts. If all you do is go around and correct peoples posts then maybe you should actually read them before you respond. I thought us Colts fans were more intelligent than that, but I guess there is one of

  14. We've got to upgrade our O-line! Whether it's re-shuffling, draft or FA we got to upgrade it. Wayne is nearing the end of his career with age and injury so we also need to find a successor. I see Hilton as a great #2 with Whalen and Brazil great complimentary WR. Rodgers has potential but needs to elevate his game to another level. Hopefully with the upcoming camp the wr corps will be able to raise the bar. I have more confidence with the wr corps coming around than the O-line. With the wr or rb's you could spread the ball around you can't with the O-line. With that said one player ma

I am a huge whitewater rafting fan. I bet you were a little let down that the river was down, but it sounded like a fantastic time. I would have loved to see the ghost town. It would be my luck it would not have been Casper, but some mean old ghost. HA HA! Looking for some pictures of your Rocky Mountain high vacation!! Super blog!!!

  22. I agree with you Maureen. For the most part your average American citizen does appreciate our veterans. But then we have those that do not. I am a firm believer that no matter what, you support the service people. Many times it is forgotten that they are just executing what their Commander and Chief (the President) tells them to do. Many times if someone disagrees with a war or what ever our military may be doing, they take it out on the soliders themselves. This to me is completely and utterly wrong on top of being disrespectful to them. As I said in my post, I needed to vent a bit. I

  23. It seems to the attitude "of it's just football" with regards to intentionally hurt someone directly opposes the law suits against the league for injuries sustained "just doing their job and just playing football" .... how many of the injuries in the law suits resulted from certain players versions of "just playing football?" There is no place in any sport for intentional injury. Play the game with skill and leave it on the score board.

I can't wait to see us have a legitimate defense!! I posted in a forum the other day how glad I was we got rid of Coyer. Someone quoted me and said I need to be careful what I wish for.

  25. "If we had won the Superbowl in 2009 against the New Orleans Saints, would Manning's longevity within this organization still be in question?" If we had won the Super Bowl in 09, Peyton Manning would have been crowned as the indisputable GOAT. I think that is what bothers most Colts fans when they think of him in another uniform. It is all so silly and trivial to place his future with this team on a nerve regeneration time-frame. Doctors have said that once the regeneration process begins, it will never stop, and the gains made will not be lost in regression. The regeneration HAS started! Thus

  26. I'm with you Wyld1.. are far as child psychology goes, many parents fail to account for their childs readiness to deal with violent images, sex, inappropriate behavior etc, whether it's a video game or a movie. If a child is still believing in santa or other such fantasies (tooth fairy, etc) they are unable to separate fantasy from reality and are very likely to believe those images they are seeing are how people are supposed to behave. The age children are exposed to these images is very important and some people start that way to young, then wonder why their 13 is pregnant. I'm not blaming m

  29. That's a great story, Gramz. I spent three years as a job coach for high school students with special needs (I'm in school now to get my special education teaching license). One of the jobs that one of my students had involved folding boxes at a pizza restaurant. Completing one million is a big feat for anyone, so is lasting for 20 years at one job. Congratulations to Amy, and thanks for sharing her awesome accomplishment.

  31. You can't be serious. Let me summarize. You don't like Grigson or think he has done a good job: you claim you want Polian back, we need more Freeman type players (that Grigson found), & we lost to NE because their talent pool was better than ours. 1st, Polian decimated this team with his nepotism of having his son Chris as GM elevating himself to President. Since 2008, he had a series of dud drafts; overpaid several players; he was totally unprepared for Peyton's absence even though Polian knew he had 1 or 2 surgeries. He put us in salary cap hell. He had long overstayed & talk

  36. MICF, God bless your father! Dispicible is just the tip of the iceberg on how wrongly Vietnam vets were treated when they came home. I watched a documentary on the Vietnam War with interviews of vets, and I was so angry and mad and saddened to tears when one of the vets said that he was so excited to come home and to be appreciated and to see his family and be assured by the pulic that what they had done was indeed worth it. He said that when he got home there were no parades. No instead he was spit on and made to feel like an outsider. He said he sat in an auditorium in his home town and

  37. so many thoughts running through my head as I read. My father served 2 tours of duty in Vietnam. This year, a few months ago they finally acknowledged the medical conditions related to agent orange poisoning and he is under going tests to determine if he is owed medical care for his many illnesses. He has a severe heart and artery condition as well as COPD. Long story, but it's very odd and he is a walking miracle having had 11 stents, a double bypass, a piece of artery replaced and 8 heart attacks. He was in Danang, where AO was 300X's more than anywhere else during the war. He is still the h

  38. I think a very small part of this is due to fans not sticking with the new regime. The biggest part of the issue is the economy which forced people to give up seats which maybe they wouldn't have if Peyton had remained, but something has to give. Also think part of this is from ticket scalpers who feel they won't make a profit on the tickets for awhile and again it is a business and tough economy.

I would love to see Peyton remain a colt, if they do not come to an agreement on the money, I just don't see it happening. They will not spend too much when they are not sure if he will be able to produce. I have no doubt in my mind Peyton is doing everything to come back and I believe he will play in the NFL this year. I hope it is for our team. I am already dealing with those 5 stages of grief. I started out in disbelief and then got angry. Did all the bargaining in my head and have felt the numbne

  44. I have a son and he had video games but none like that. He has cartoon video games like Star Wars and Mario, and games that help him learn. I am a single parent and do my best to teach my son right and wrong. We have a set of rules and he knows the consequences. In his parent/teacher conference, his teacher told me how he was such a good and sweet boy. She said I can tell you work with him at home and that he has rules. Apparently there are some who do not. Some of the things he tells me other kids do just shocks me.

  46. If there was a love it button for comments I would of clicked it Brent! I can't agree more with what you said. People have the freedom to choose whatever words they want and as pointed out, sometimes words do not mean what people think they do. So maybe before people think something they should find out for sure that way they can know something. I honestly think no matter what someone writes or doesn't write people will always find something wrong with it and criticize it.
