Haven't posted on here in a while, but just been confirmed that the Colts will play the Jags in London on October 2nd 2016

Finally going to get to see them in the flesh! Very excited.

Congrats to you.

Not so sure about the Colts though. Does anyone know the record for teams their first game back after being in London?

Am I the only one that hates this london game crap?

Why? I don't see anything wrong with trying to expand the game. Convert some of those young futbol hooligans into football players and BOOM the NFL has a pipeline for crazy special team players.

Nope, I dont like them either,  They are trying to force american football down their throats.  The WLAF didn't work so why try putting an NFL team 3500 miles away from the rest of the league. its ridiculous

I'm not saying I can't understand the point of view of those that don't like the international series but for me an English Colts fan it's great news and about the only chance I will ever get to see the Colts play. I would love to come to Indy and the LOS but I have a young family to support and its not going to happen. I would think it is more annoying for jags fans as its a home game for them. I'm still torn on if we actually need to franchise here full time but there's no denying the popularity here of the international series of games.

I'm happy for you guys who will get to see them in person now, but outside of that, I absolutely HATE the London games. The travel is INSANE for the team, and I can only imagine how much this messes up schedule, routine, and recovery time. I so wish the Colts were not a part of this ridiculousness.

I heard the tickets sell out in like 5 minutes once they become available.

It's not that bad, they sell the three game "season" bundles first then put individual game tickets on sale later, plus they usually have returns from the home teams/players allocations. Just need to decide whether to renew my existing seat (club level behind the end zone) or try and get somewhere better.

I don't thinks it's that much worse than traveling to the west coast. And since when did NFL players become such delicate butterflies? The horror of taking a private plan to London to play a football game......

As long as the Colts sell out all their home games they'll never play a home game outside of Indy. Only teams like the jags, raiders, and bucs that don't sell out at home will have home games in London or where ever the nfl goes next.

    • I wouldn't say it's just my view, but yeah that is typically what follows when someone shares their opinion. I think Ballard shares the same view supported by the fact he more than likely lets Walker.. Walk. 
    • I personally am not surprised. Could be Irsay/Ballard/Reich just being supportive guys.  I also wouldn't mind him coming back on a one year prove it deal if he's healed up proper.  He's not going to get a big deal from another team after that injury. One year of productive stats could raise his value a lot. 
    • Bobby O needs to step up his game this coming season. I don't think Walker is coming back ( he'd be a better fit in a 3-4 IMO), and the Colts need better play if he is going to keep that starting role. He consistently seemed to be a step slow in coverage, and that is supposed to be his strong suit. Hopefully, it was a sophomore slump, but if it continues into year 3, Oke will be a backup very quickly. 
    • Stitches....    to your very good point about how to know which performances are real-ish and which are not?   I read a good story earlier this month, I think from Sports Illustrated, basically saying the scouting community is freaking out trying to figure out that exact question.    The loss of the combine eliminates the apples to apples comparison that everyone had.   Plus the loss of face to face meetings...   plus the same set of doctors examining all the players.   All gone.  Medical exams will be done by local doctors.   Personnel people don’t know what to do?   Or didn’t as of early Feb.   I think this increases the chances of scouting error for all teams.   Perhaps dramatically?   I think we could see more Day 1 and Day 2 misses than ever before.   But that’s just my guess...
