Amazing how you can bypass all legality/laws when you have a lot of money and high powered attorneys.

Sickening. Not sure why the supposed innocent people in the videos who’s rights weren’t protected can’t be blurred out....but then they would say the videos are altered? Absolutely sickening that that piece of slime will walk.

The best part of this is how you guys assume Irsay is above this kind of thing.

 

He's far more of a classless human being than Kraft has ever been.

If the old man would just say "I was horny" he would have been better off.  Everyone needs a little lovin' sometime.

This post is right on par with how classless everyone in the Pats organization and all their fans are.

Meh. Who really cares? If this happened to any other NFL owner (well, other than Jim Irsay, perhaps) no one would have posted a single word about it here. It has zero impact on any play, in game the Colts are going to play this season, even if they face the Pats in the AFC Championship game.

Yes. You guys know everything about me as a human being from a few message board posts. Whatever you do, don't actually learn the facts about Jim Irsay and some of the things he's done (at least Kraft hasn't been complicit in anyone's death). It would be way too much for your heightened sensibilities to deal with. He's truly an upstanding human being and I'm just a big, meal old Patriots fan, trying to set you guys straight. My bad.

Like clockwork, you bring Irsay into this discussion with this..."The best part of this is how you guys assume Irsay is above this kind of thing."

 

First YOU generalize us all, by saying you guys,....and how is this any different than the above bolded statement? Next sentence, you use a facetious approach to insult those posting in this thread. That is why is was....and still is, an epic fail. 

 

Frankly, I find that fans trying to bandy opinions with opposing teams fans on their own boards to be an indicator of insecurities. I could be wrong, but I have never seen a fan base in ANY sport that works as hard to travel the internet message board globe, working to correct other teams fans as to how they should view the Patriots/players/coaches/owners. 

 

Frankly, it absolutely amazes me. But in fairness and respect for you as a poster here, I will end this here, regardless of any further discussion of this. Best of luck to you.

Yes I'm here because of my psychological insecurities. You nailed it. I mean "clockwork" is a bit of a stretch, since I don't bother posting here anymore because of the ridiculous nature of this board as it relates to the Patriots, but whatever. If it helps you sleep better at night, go with that. 

 

I've been personally attacked more times than I can account for, so I won't apologize. The people who knew me 10 years ago on this board know who I am. The rest of you are fair weather, Johnny-come-lately fans whose opinions are meaningless to me.

You're a good guy so I'm sorry... this isn't directed at you. I'm just tired of having my character called into question because I grew up in New England. I can only hope that you and others - who have my utmost respect - understand. I wish you all the best.

Imo you have bragging rights and it is all in fun. 6 SB wins by Tom and BB. Colts have a great franchise too and Peyton got a SB win going through you guys, Luck is a beast too. This season will be real interesting. Tom is the GOAT IMO, I would put Peyton probably 3rd because of my respect for Montana. Colts have been great over the last 25 years but Pats have been better, no shame in that to me.

What am I supposed to think of you when I read your posts?

 

You go on a Colts forum to badmouth Irsay, generalize all Colts fans, and then say we're "attacking" you when we respond to your insults.

 

How would I be received by your fellow Pats fans if I did something similar on a Pats forum?

Right. Because having a disease (Addiction) is worse than soliciting prostitutes.

Go Pats, I've haven't had any beef with you on this forum, But honestly, If you think that Irsay is the classless man that you think he is, Why on God's green earth, do you post in here? If god forbid, I moved to Boston, I would still only post in here, Because "I am a Colts Fan" If you are not, I don't see the point.

Basically it sounds like a bunch of other guys would have gotten away with it if they had high priced lawyers too.

 

Realistically speaking, especially since there was no human trafficking I don't feel there is any reason to punish him.  I mean him and his girlfriend seem to have an open relationship so he's not really even violating their personal relationship.  

 

All that happened is the police embarrassed him.

Soliciting prostitution is illegal in Florida, of course he should be punished. It’s a shame that this case has been bungled and he will most likely walk due to his high priced attorneys.

That's the thing, I really don't think it should be illegal if everyone is there willingly and doing it willingly. 

 

I would only say he should be punished on the basis that he should be treated like everyone else.  But honestly I could do without the cops spending taxpayer money and time arresting two people who willingly traded cash for sex acts.  Don't get me wrong morally I look down upon it.  But generally speaking I'd prefer to use the time and money on arresting people who are actually hurting other people.  

 

Honestly who did Kraft hurt?  The woman?  She was there willingly and she got arrested too.  In fact one of the problems the prosecutors are having is they want her to testify against Kraft but since testifying would just be an admission of her own guilt she told them she was just going to take the 5th.  

 

Let Kraft have his fun and let the lady make her money the way she chooses to.  I don't blame you for looking down on the whole practice, I do too.  But this whole operation, the arrest and court cases and all the money spent on that doesn't improve our society in any way.

Fair enough, I understand and somewhat agree with your take. He should absolutely be treated as anyone else who got caught soliciting a prostitute. Her being a willing participant is questionable... these massage parlors(brothels) are known for human trafficking, and the retaliation for snitching is usually death, so of course they will all plead the fifth... this investigation didn’t start with Kraft, He just so happened to start being a regular at this place that was being investigated for human trafficking and prostitution.  Prostitution normally does not involve willing participants there’s always a pimp or an organization involved that treats the women like trash  and take the majority of the money.

From what I've heard they have no evidence that this is the case here.  It's hard to say what is the most often reality because it's illegal here there is no way to accurately study it.

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
