  1. Maybe it is, to me it just seems like 40 test a week, if it were truly random, would get a lot of positives. I mean, no one knows the true number of players who use HGH, but I'd be willing to bet it is well over 50%
  2. Believe me, I know it already happens. But if anything, there's no reason to add fuel to the fire by giving players a way to make money off of their notoriety.
  3. I'm with you. I honestly don't know how many people will get busted and I thought the same thing you did regarding the "random" part of the testing. But it's not like I want people to go down in flames over this HGH testing. It'll happen to some, sure. Hope its not any of our guys!
  4. Two for the price of one, eh? Does he have 2 and if so, what's his name and email address? Any game is fine. Thanks.
  5. I gotta go back to work now? Thanks alot.
  6. God, wife, Colts, nachos, burgers, and beer. Best day ever created.

  7. My wife almost every year gets me colts tickets for my birthday, so thankfully, it's late september, so it's actual real games. Unfortunately, this year, they'll be in SF on my Bday. I was kinda crushed to hvae such a good matchup, just to have it away. Congrats on the engagement by the way. You got decades of tough work ahead of you, but it's worth it if you both give everything you got.
  8. Over/under - 115 players busted in the first 4 weeks.
  9. I gotcha. And I mean, the bottom line is, if there's the demand for pre-season tickets and people are buying them for 80 bucks or whatever, there's no incentive to reduce the prices. I get the business part of it, but from a logical standpoint, I sound stupid when I say that pre-season games are the same as regular season games, so the price should be the same.
  10. Yeah, I won't argue that. And when people have to part with money, you're right, obviously not everyone's going to be happy about it.
  11. No. Too expensive. Hopefully in a few years, though.
  12. The bigger issue for me is that it can have the propensity to persuade young recruits. Say that if you go to School A, this a card dealer will buy autographs only from star players, but you'll get $100K over the course of the year. But, if you go to School B, a different card dealer will buy starters autographs, but you'll only make $25K per year. I don't mind schools competing for kids, but not by asking them business decisions like this.
  13. If I'm not paying full price for pre-season tickets, then how come when I go to the box office for one pre-season game they charge me full price?
  14. . If I had a nickel for every time I've got caught...
  15. I would argue that if there was one fault to Polian as to why we didn't win more titles, i'ts because our defenses were built to play with the lead. When we played teams with stout Ds, like the Patriots in the playoffs, the Steelers, etc., scoring was a bit more scarce. Then our D had to go into attack mode, and it wasn't good enough to do that. Manning had the tendency to force throws when behind, and the ending writes itself. There are several reasons why we didn't win another superbowl, but I wouldn't say we underachieved, and the short plain statement of the reason is that, the orga
  16. It's not so much that he's going out looking for reporters to bash Belichick. It's reporters coming to Welker asking him the same questions over and over again. I feel for the guy, and I understand the business decision. But he's not really telling us anything we didn't already know about Belicheck, and i'ts not like we know football players don't take crap from their coaches and don't like it.
  17. Yeah, choker goes to far, I suppose. It was more of the message than name calling. He came up short would be a better way to phrase it.
  18. And those are faults that you can put on Polian. And I'm not saying that we shouldn't have won more superbowls, I jsut dispute saying it was an underachievement. Some element of winning superbowls is a little bit of luck, sometimes its getting hot at the right time. And while you cite Manning's consistency getting us into playoffs, there were far to many games where the lead or comeback was lost because of Manning. Love what the guy did for Indianapolis, but I don't think I'm alone when I say that I think Manning choked quite often in the playoffs.
  19. Superbowls are hard to come by. Should we have won more? Maybe. But to say winning 1 superbowl is an underachievement is not really an appropriate criticism. How many teams DIDN'T win a superbowl during the manning era?
  20. Both guys are solid. In terms of body frame, you'd rather have a guy like DHB be your #2 WR. But your size doesn't mean much with dropped passes. I know a lot of people on here are complaining about the 5 drops in practice, and it is a concern. Maybe he had a bad day. He's also had some really good days according to Chuck Pagano - http://www.footballnation.com/content/darrius-heyward-bey-continues-to-impress-colts-camp/23788/. I wouldn't throw the towel on him yet. The guy has the potential to be a very good #2 WR, and if he delivers, we'll have one of the best, if not THE best, WR co
  21. Neither were particularly good drafts. 07 being the worst of the two. But when you miss on your 1st and 2nd round picks, it will tend to bring the draft class down quite a bit. As Albaby said, Hindsight is always 20/20.
  22. Thanks. And I agree with that as well. But like most of us acknowledge, as I'm sure you do, it's pre-season game #1. Even if Mathis usually doesn't make that mistake, there's still some cobwebs. There's always a difference between practice and games, even if it's pre-season. So I'm confident Colts will be just fine. BTW, why do they have this stupid post restictions? Is it unlimited after I get my 10 approved posts or whatever?
