I'm right outside of the stadium, eager to go in and watch my Colts... 

 

Sounds like you may not make it in, and it's possible if you do then it may end being a scrimmage instead of a game.

They've reported players are saying it's like walking on tar, and don't want to be on it.  I don't blame them.  That's all we need is players' feet sticking and knees, ankles, hips going out.

 

I was looking forward to the first game, but I hope now it's not happening.  No injuries.

This is comical someone could use the wrong paint haha Man as Randy Moss said someone is going to lose their job. I have seen it all now!

Ohhh yeah and rightfully so, highly deserving.  You have to suck very terribly managing to screw the first NFL preseason game up so bad to the point where it can't be played.

I know, a lot of people were waiting for this, not just Colts and Packers fans but just Football fans in general. Imagine the people that are there?? What a huge blunder! I was ready to watch some Football as well but it is what it is.

my nephew is there.  Made his reservations in January.

Not a total loss because he got to meet his hero Bob Sanders.

But, when you plan a weekend like this......you buy tickets, you expect to see a game

Yeah that stinks. At least he got to meet Bob but not having a game stinks especially when you there live.

He's an out of control colts fan.  He's really fun to go to a game with.  His wife is an uber green bay fan.  They were so excited!

They were posting pics yesterday and it looked like they had a lot of fun.  I know not seeing the game is pretty terrible but I bet they are still glad they went.

I really want to know how they managed to screw this up.  Isn't this the NFL's thing? Shouldn't they have made sure crews knew exactly what to do? Field is MASSIVELY IMPORTANT

You keep using that word.  I don't think it means what you think it means.

 

 

It simply means unbelievable, which to me this is unbelievable due to the sheer stupidity of whoever was in charge.

    • @Superman   @w87r   So, among many things, I get e-mail from Sports Illustrated every day.   And the other day,  there was this article written by Andew Brandt, who used to handle the contracts and salary cap issues for the Packers for 10 years.    And one thing he wrote jumped off the page at me.     Now, here's why I remind our two resident Salary Cap experts I noted above about something they have both talked about,  but I haven't seen either of them talk about this year.   Roll Over.   According to Brandt,  the Colts have the MOST SALARY CAP ROLLOVER in the NFL.   $30 MIl.    So, whatever the general 2021 team salary cap turns out to be,  you can add $30 Mill for the Colts.     I'm going to do two things.     I'm going to link the entire article for everyone.    It's free, non-premium,   and I'm also going to cut and paste the key section for everyone to read right here.      OK....    here's the article...      And just for discussion purposes,  Brandt uses a projected salary cap of $185.   He's NOT saying that's what the final number will be,  only his own hypothetical number for his article.   https://www.si.com/nfl/2021/03/02/business-of-football-understanding-the-salary-cap-dead-money?suid=5cc1cc3a3f92a475c0234f43&utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SI Extra 030221&utm_term=SI Extra - USE THIS - List     Here is the key text:   Myth: Every NFL team’s cap number is going to be $185 million   No. Actually, no team’s cap number is going to be $185 million (or whatever the final cap number is). The 2011 CBA, for the first time, allowed teams to carry over unused cap room from one year to the next. In managing the cap for the Packers, we did not have that option; it was use it or lose it. I had to negotiate * incentives—such as a clause giving our third-string quarterback $20 million if he threw seven touchdowns in our last game—to carry over cap room. (When he didn’t earn the incentive, we would get it as a credit toward the next year.) Now teams don’t have to play those games. As per NFLPA numbers, every team in the league has carried over 2020 cap room, from a low of roughly $500,000 for the Ravens to a high of more than $30 million for the Colts. Teams carrying over $20-plus million of cap include the Jets, Browns, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. Thus, although the team cap is $185 million, the Colts’ adjusted cap will be around $215 million, and so on. And again, these teams have been preparing, or should have been preparing, for this reduced cap for months.   What say you both, Superman and w87r?     What do you think of what Brandt has written?    Does everyone have to re-do their off-season mocks reflecting a team figure of $215?     I look forward to hearing from both of you and others!
    • Jets take Zach Wilson  dolphins up
    • I have to agree. His draft order is not always spot on but his ability to evaluate talent is always in the ballpark as to what GMs agree on.  As it turned out Tobin's rant ended up being pretty lame after Trev Alberts ended up being one of the Colts all time bust. Not only was Alberts a bust, so was Tobin. 
    • I don’t know why after so many years there are so many people who still believe Kiper  doesn’t know what he’s talking about? The exact opposite is true.   Always has been.   He’s lasted more than 35 years and for very good reason.    But I’ve been reading this here since I showed up nearly nine years ago.  Some falsehoods die slowly around here.
