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.

    • I do remember his VCU days in basketball, and he'd absolutely destroy anyone in the paint.    I still go back to that catch during the Raiders game in 2018. That was around our turning point where we just took off and didn't look back. 
    • @John Waylon  great statement 
    • This is why this thing is so out of hand.    A helmet isn’t going to stop the spread. A face shield will lower the chances of spread, but it doesn’t eliminate it.    You don’t have to spend a “considerable amount of time around someone” to catch the virus. You can literally contract it passing someone on a sidewalk if they have recently spouted the virus into the air.    And football players spend the whole game, literally the whole game, running around making contact with others. Breathing heavy. Yelling. Spitting. Slobbering. It’s a wonderful breeding ground for the virus to spread.    Beyond that there are already plenty of high-risk groups who have a chance to suffer from complications of the virus. Maybe they have an elderly family member who lives in-home. Maybe a diabetic or asthmatic child. Maybe they are diabetic.    The kind of narrow and uninformed rhetoric above is exactly why this thing has, and continues to burn through the planet, especially here in the US. 
    • Darius has stated many times that he prefers to play around 220. He was weighed in at 230 for the combine.  But was nursing an injury, and was not able to work out for a lot of that time, and gained some weight.
    • Yeah he is listed at 230. I was thinking more like 235.
