Well congrats mass sports media you did it again. I’m mostly lookin at you ESPN because lets be honest no one watches FOX Sports. Anyway, if you watched any SportsCenter lately you’d assume that Jim Irsay (Colts’ owner for those of you who didn’t catch that) basically told the world that he hated Peyton Manning, and that he always hated him.

Guys just wanna have fun. (via)

 

You see, Irsay was prompted by reporters to answer some questions about life post-Peyton. And like any good billionaire owner, Irsay said what he thought. And the only line that people really heard, for whatever reason was this: “You love to have the Star Wars numbers from Peyton and Marvin (Harrison) and Reggie (Wayne). Mostly, you love this ring.” (via). And then something about a nice little tap of the ring.

C’mon Jim. (via)

Now people, Jim Irsay wasn’t saying Peyton was a terrible player akin to Curtis Painter or Drew Stanton, or whoever they trotted out last season. Rather, he was saying he wished he won more, which is what every owner really gives a damn about. Plus, if anybody but apparently me, actually saw more of the interview you’d understand that Irsay wasn’t bashing Peyton at all, rather quite the opposite. Irsay admits that Peyton was the one who convinced him to draft Luck, and that without letting Manning go, well, they wouldn’t have been able to hit reset and start to build something new. Hell, Irsay even said “What’s happened is what Peyton and I hoped would happen.” (via). Yeah, seems like a real asshole.

Everyone needs to simmer down. Irsay made some great points, plus hey, he’s the owner of the team, he just wants to win so he can laugh about it with his other rich friends….or maybe he wants some of these cuff links, I don’t know.  What I do know is that I want you to please leave your questions or comments below.
