They're just trying to keep the crowd sizes and thus the noise down, so that Andrew Luck can "develop under the radar and not in the spotlight so as to potentially throw him off his road to stardom". It's all a grand plan by the NFL.

......or something like that.

Theodoric of York: Wait a minute. Perhaps she's right. Perhaps I've been wrong to blindly folow the medical traditions and superstitions of past centuries. Maybe we barbers should test these assumptions analytically, through experimentation and a "scientific method". Maybe this scientific method could be extended to other fields of learning: the natural sciences, art, architecture, navigation. Perhaps I could lead the way to a new age, an age of rebirth, a Renaissance! ... Naaaaaahhh! :D:P

How embarrasing will it be when the Colts get flexed into a primetime slot and it's blacked out at home?

Very.

But the rest of the country will be able to see the tarps.

To be fair, the price of a new John Deere combine has increased by more than 12% during the recession.

Oh, and Indy fans are nothing more than front-running hicks. ;) :)

Where is locker room combo on this. Oh yeah, he is on a self imposed exile for a month after his bashing he took on the Ravens not getting any or more than 1 prime time game. It is funny that before Manning the Colts had trouble and now after Manning they are showing signs of no fans. The new QB better be good or it will be back up the Mayflower Vans and hello LA.

It's truly amazing what a wretched economy will do to a working class blue collar city.... :rolleyes:

Despite that.....doesn't change the fact that they are still just what you 'protested.'

Looks like he has followed Peyton to Denver.

He's a maniac, maniac on the floor..... NTTAWWT. BTW - he's not locker combo anymore, he is Sacha.

It's truly amazing that there were no economic "issues" with the Colts at the height of the recession when a certain QB was still there.

The Colts are experiencing the Manning recession (depression?).

If this happens ,it will prove what bandwagon fans they really are. Any true football town will sell-out no matter how bad the team is.

If the Colts had taken Ryan Leaf in 1998, which might have happened if he had shown up for an interview, they'd have moved to Los Angeles years ago...

Wrong again clown,lol.

The state UE is right with the nationa;l average at 8.4.

Given your analysis, the entire NFL should have ticket selling issues, even Baltimore.

And that is not the case at all fool

He's an idiot and he's not even a Colts fan to begin with so there's no point even trying to talk sense into him

When u win, they show up. When u don't, they stay home. Just like in every other town in the NFL.
Including the final years of the Baltimore Colts.

Yes, but I also realize I have no clue. I don't actually buy my own BS.
