    Luck said he was going to address the team tomorrow. My guess is someone with the Colts was butthurt and leaked it to Shefter during a game where he was on the sideline. Then he’s forced to say a few words when he didn’t expect to. You can’t put it past Jim Irsay.

    Luck being in and out of the lineup throughout the year would’ve been tough as well. Just a crappy situation all around.

    He tried playing it off on sarcasm but he should know better than that. Gottlieb was already un-likable and basically Cowherd’s mini-me. Colin has his moments but he’s smarter than doing something like that.

    Yeah I don't buy the sarcasm bit at all. I think he legitimately forgets he did one of the most embarassing and douchey things, got caught, lied about it, got caught lying about it and he just can't seem to grasp why people still don't like him.

    Stop taking cheap shots at athletes for doing things that pale in comparison from a scholarship athlete from a wealthy family stealing from a fellow college athlete.

    They should have immediately bet the under once the news broke. That could have been their hedge.

    Oh, won’t someone think of the FANS (who booed him off the field)????

    Give me a break.

    So those working class people only care about 1 of the 53? That's a lame argument. They were fans before Luck and will surely be fans after.

    Luck has way more to offer the world than playing in the NFL. he is turning down 10s of millions of dollars. It ain't coming out of the working man's pocket. Yes, he got a lot of guaranteed money in his last deal. If you know anything about NFL economics that is largely TV money and nothing from the working man.

    Luck doesn't owe those fans a damn thing. He seriously broke his body for them. They did nothing but cheer and clap. He owes them NOTHING.

    if Fitz retires tonight, I will say exactly the same thing.

    NFL fans should be grateful for guys like Fitz and Luck playing this game. Period. Instead of all the ho' slapping, drug taking and idiot morons, who cant think their way out of a paper sack, selfish, self glorifying douche bags who tend to be the face of the NFL.

    Personally , I hope the Colts fans have to wander for 40 years in a playoff-less desert for how they reacted.

    I hope they are plagued with a barren desert of quality free agent signings for how they reacted.

    Any fans of any other NFL teams who are critical of a man placing his own health and well being above the game of football...well I won't say what I hope for you because, quite frankly, it is mean spirited at best and downright evil at worst.

    He better not be booed, that's the reason I spent $1600 on plane & game tickets plus hotel room. Wanted to be there for his ROH ceremony. My first game ever at SFS.

    Andrew Luck did what he needed to do for whatever reason he felt necessary. I hope he has a long, healthy and happy life outside of football.

    He was sure a great one when healthy.

    Keim tries in vain to improve our O Line with injury prone FA’s and draft picks. Our o-Line is horrible but it’s not for lack of effort in trying to improve it. It’s just that SK keeps making bad decisions and bad luck.

    I meant from the perspective that an athlete (or joe anyone’s) should do whatever floats his boat as long as it’s not hurting anyone. Athletes and fans don’t owe each other anything. You may get mad like the idiots in Indy, but that decision is that mans decision alone.
