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.

    • McAfee had Rossini on today talking about how it's gonna be a massacre this week. I'm not so sure about that. Some of these guys yeah are gonna get let go but anyone with a bonus they are gonna also be looking at waiting for June 1 so they can spread the hit out away from this year. It's definitely gonna be a bloodbath but I don't think we will see it all this week. Again way too much draft capital being spent and not enough backloaded contracts for proven talent. It's definitely going to be interesting though. 
    • The Eagles pick 9 spots ahead of us as it is and that will obviously be more if Ballard trades back. What the Eagles do will likely have very little influence on what the Colts do and vice versa.
    • First....  I try not to have 100 percent rules.  I try not to use words like “always” and “never”.    Using absolutes will get you into trouble.    That said, if I am going to draft a WR in the first round I’d like him to have rare or special qualities.   Size AND speed.  Hands AND routes.    I’m fine taking smaller receivers, but I personally prefer them outside the top-50.  Hilton was taken late-3rd.  I think 92nd.  Little receivers can be found later in the draft.     I love both Moore’s.   Don’t think I love either enough to take them at 21.  Now, Waddle is small.  But he has rare speed and quickness.  Super acceleration and separation.   Plus he’s got great return ability to boot.  He’s the full package.  I don’t see him as top-10 player, but I’d take him 11-32 all day long in any draft.    There are exceptions to every rule.  But those should only happen few and far between opportunities.  
    • He's not even the best slot receiver in the class either
