Best owner in the NFL.

Perhaps but usually where there’s smoke, there’s fire. If Irsay is shopping the Colts......

i'm saying that person who called probably didn't have 3.2 billion it could be just a prankster lol

Yeah you are probably right?

I just googled it. I didnt even realize...

 

The USA meaning of a billion is a thousand million, or one followed by nine noughts (1,000,000,000).

Google lists Jim Irsay's Net Worth at 3 billion...

So I guess the offer is possible.

Jimmy’s had his hiccups in his personal life and occasionally says dumb stuff on Twitter, but he’s been a pretty good owner who doesn’t meddle to much and allows the football personnel run the team.

And he's an owner that deeply cares about the team.

Jim and I are still negotiating. We’re due for lunch tomorrow for another round of bargaining. 

 

No. You can’t have a job.

Throw in Jimi Hendrix’s Strat or King David’s harp with that 3.2 bazillion and I think he’ll bite! :bossy:

If the Colts left Indy, I’d have a incredibly hard time. My state is already full of Tennessee fans and bandwagon fans. Hard enough already.

Hey John, I'm not paying you to have lunch with the client. Get the negotiation over with and report to me first thing in the morning on the deal.

3.2 billion was just not enough but everyone and everything has a price.

 

Irsay wants for nothing. He spends thousands on his Guitars. He lives a wealthy life all while getting to own the Colts, another love of his. He has no need for more money. Hes got a nice cash flow going. What will billions give him that he doesn't already have?

Puts things in perspective.

Tonight, my next-door neighbor was telling me they are selling their beach properties.  She also said they sold a building and property they were previously leasing to a salvation army-type 2nd hand (donation driven) store.    For $5.5 million.

 I thought "nice, I think i'll buy the island next to Johnny Depp."

In Irsay's case, I'd say "nice, i think i'll buy the country next to...."

You don't have to shop to get an offer. So who really knows. I just hope if he ever did sell they would stay in Indy.

This comment doesn't make any sense.  Businesses get bought and sold for similar amount all the time.  The person probably does have 3.2 billion in cash that is true but that is not a requirement nor is that how these transactions happen.

No matter who the owner is, I'd expect the Colts to stay in INdy.  Where else would they go?  There aren't that many other cities that the NFL can go to, at least in the USA.

San Antonio has been looking for a team, they were really trying to get the Raiders before they decided to go to Las Vegas, and already have the Alamodome, although I’m sure it’s quite outdated to today’s standards, definitely no Lucas Oil Stadium.  Doubt that would ever happen, though.  I might be moving down there in the next few years so a guy can dream right, LOL!

There are several potential cities that can and would support an NFL team.  Goodall has been wanting to have a team in a different country too.  I don't like that idea unless it is Toronto.

 

There are over 600 billionaires in the USA alone.  

If I was a billionaire, I would be making offers to buy NFL teams too.

If sold, why would the Colts move away from Indy?  Indy is actually one of the NFL's 10 largest cities with a population larger than Boston, Cincy, Cleveland, Detroit, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Baltimore, KC and on and on.

 

This is not 1984 anymore.

    • But Luck quit before the Ballard's third season...and according to many here...JB is a legit starting QB (or at the very least...the league's best backup).    So...you have one of the league's top GMs with three offseasons to build a team...and a legit backup QB to step in and start...and that team wins 7 games. That's less than the 2018 team that had no Luck for half the season and bad/hurt Luck for the other half.   Regardless of missed kicks last season...they were the 19th ranked defense and 19th ranked offense (according to DVOA)...that is basically an average team...or a .500 record team (sort of like 17-15). Either JB was a terrible QB or the roster wasn't as strong as we hoped. I think the truth is probably somewhere in the middle.   With Luck...the team was better than average no doubt...but they also started 1-5...before Luck started playing like an MVP and they rattled off 9 wins against the league's second easiest schedule.    I am not saying Ballard hasn't done a good job building the roster...I just don't think the team results have been nearly as great...or at least not commensurate with the praise he gets. It's fine to judge him on the process...which is what nearly everyone does...but we have to recognize that the team results need to get better fast.  
    • They social high-five during the game but I just saw a highlight where the players high-fived the old way celebrating the win!!! Don't they have families to go home to?
    • Can't answer that question.  IMO, I think we've seen what JB is going to give us.  He's decent when he's not injured.  But I don't think anyone expects much more out of him than that.   We know nothing about Eason.  I keep hearing how he didn't play well against good D's in college.  That could be on the coaching staff.  All we know is that he has the right measurables.  Guys like Montana and Brady didn't.
    • I honestly don’t think they are counting on Eason to be a franchise QB.  He was drafted bc it was very good value in the 4th round.  I bet the real expectation is for him to be a high quality back up.  I’m sure they would love to catch lightning in a bottle but most likely Eason won’t pan out like the majority of drafted QBs despite pro quality physical talent.  I could be wrong, nfl teams try forcing square pegs into round holes all the time. Look at Malik Hooker...
    • Corrected, you are wrong.  Spags runs primarily a Cover 2 type D.  I mean I know you quoted Wikipedia and everything but when you watch they run a very similar D to the Colts.
