    So how do you guys feel about the colts selling championship rings for fans.

    http://www.nflshop.com/search/index...ice/NFL/00008000/999999999999&kw=jewelry&pg=1

    Personally i don't like it. If I never played a down, never filled a water bottle or washed a towel for the team I wouldn't wear a championship ring. It's something you earn not buy.

    But i'm sure colt fans will says it's the team sharing their super bowl with the fans yadda yadda yadda.
    I think it's pretty tacky....and they ain't cheap either.

    There's something wrong with you if you pay $1169 for a replica. If it was an actual ring worn by a player sold for charity (or to make up for some bad financial decisions) I could see spending that much if you're a hardcore memorabilia collector. But for something manufactured just to be sold through a website... :bricks:

    It's not really any different than buying an 'official' team jersey. I wouldn't buy either one of them, but there's nothing inherently wrong with it.

    It's not like they are even replicas. They really don't look like the Super Bowl rings.

    i don't see what the big deal is...it is not a replica of the real one and it gives the fans a chance to be part of something they love. I say no big deal

    The Patriots did the same thing after their SBs so I don't see what the big deal is.

    Yup. They were all over the Pats ProShop. If someone wants to buy it, go ahead. I have no qualms with Indy for this.

    Now when Ohio State gave the band actual championship rings in 2002, well...

    Ditto the no big deal comment.

    Not my style but if someone wants one, why not.

    I guess if you don't have a problem rooting for a team you "stole" from another city, then you wouldn't have a problem wearing a ring for a team you didn't play for.....
