I heard a certain Team-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named played a game this past Sunday. Because I personally am no longer am adding to the ratings of the NFL (Negroes-For-Lease) — i had to rely on the internetz and social media to find out how they did.
Oh, it seemed to have been a doozy
46-9 against the expansion LA Rams ??? Two Pick-6’s and a safety? (that’s 14 points scored for the other team, more than the Colts got for themselves). A complete embarrassment for a team and owner who have openly snubbed still-available QB Colin Kaepernick, when they could desperately use him themselves? Tell me more.
The Colts trotted out the ghost of some guy named Scott Tolzien as their starting quarterback on sunday — and well just to put it in perspective. This was his first pass of the game — an interception that was returned for a touchdown.
This whole chain of events brought me back to a moment not too long ago, when Indy news source WTHR put up an interesting social media post —– one that caused a lot of commotion on Facebook. One that is also very ironic looking back on—
The final numbers of that unofficial poll was 14,000 against signing Kaepernick, and only 6,000 for. I wonder what the results would be if they ran that exact same poll today?
We previously ran a piece entitled “5 Reasons why Black Fans should Boycott the Colts, and the NFL” that detailed the multiple reasons Colts fans should take the Colin Kaepernick protest, and just want to end this by reiterating some words from that story —
Despite Jim Irsay having a earned reputation of being a drunk, pill popper, spoiled, and a version of Donald Trump on twitter before Donald Trump was actually on Twitter — Jim usually receives the benefit of the doubt from the vast majority of the Colts Community. Infact, his outspokenness and willingness to say whatever is on his mind has been applauded by fans. We have come to count on Jim to say his true thoughts, and to be a friend of free speech. That’s until he decided to speak on the Colin Kaepernick situation himself, which gave us this quote.
“I think it’s the wrong venue,” Irsay said. “It hasn’t been a positive thing. What we all have to be aware of as players, owners, PR people, equipment managers, is when the lights go on we are entertainment. We are being paid to put on a show. There are other places to express yourself.”
That story described Irsay as the “Rock N Roll rebel” of NFL owners, and spoke on the meaning of him taking that stance against Kapernick. The NFL owners are in solidarity in making sure Colin Kaepernick never plays in their league again, and Irsay is falling right in line.
