    "I wish they'd come here for once," Colts tight end Dallas Clark said, looking ahead to Sunday night's prime-time matchup with the Patriots. "I don't think they know where Indianapolis is anymore.
    "We know they're never going to come here. The NFL wouldn't like that. It would kill their ratings. I think I'm going to get a timeshare there and see if I can save some money."


    how is it better for the ratings as supposed to the game played in indy ? and the pats do go to indy next yr

    Assuming, of course, that both teams win their respective divisions. I'm still a little wary of those Dolphins.

    As long as Clark's comments make it to the Pats locker room, I'm happy.

    I guess he thinks that if the Pats travelled to the Colts, all those games would be uncontested Colts blow-outs and would not be worthy of interest to the NFL. Right on, buddy!

    so assuming we each keep winning our divisions each year, we go to their place each of the next three years? so then he'll have another one one of those cry-baby colt excuses to check off as 'already used'.

    Especially given Brady is undefeated in domes and Clark's domed team blew HFA throughout the playoffs to the first team that showed up with a defense in the first round of the playoffs again last season. :rolleyes:

    How sad is it when an NFL player doesn't even know how the scheduling works? Well at least he is a Colt so the whining is expected.

    honestly that team would be pathetic without manning.
    I realize any team would be much worse if you take away their best player, but I think some teams just totally rely too much on onw guy. I think cassel could still lead this team if brady was out for awhile, but the dolts are just a bunch of worthless pu**ies without their crybaby leader.

    If the Colts hadn't been stuffed at the goalline in Indy in 2003, they would have had the 2003 AFCCG at home. If they'd beaten the Pats in the AFCCG at home that year and won the SB, they would have opened at home in 2004 to defend their SB against the Pats. If they had won that game, they would have played the Pats at home in the 2004 divisional round. So they would have had 5 consecutive home games against NE. See how important WINNING is (not to mention Willie's stuff on 4th down)? Memo to Dallas: stop listening to footsteps, stop dropping easy passes, start learning how to block, and keep your mouth closed.

    No they wouldn't have opened at home, it had been predetermined that in 2004 and 2005 the Pats would host the AFC South team that finished in the same place in the standings, in this case the Colts. This season is the year we play everyone in that division and it is switched up from last time when we played @ Indy and Houston, this year it's @ Tennessee and Jacksonville. The next two seasons the Pats play the AFC South team on the road, most likely the Colts.

    No you're wrong. The SB champion played a rematch of the Conference Champion in the opening game of the season in those years, if possible on the standard schedule. Hence, 2002: NE vs. Pitt, 2003: TB vs Phi, 2004: NE vs. Indy. The league changed the system in 2005 for the Pats, because neither Pitt, nor Indy wanted to do it anymore. So they settled on 2005: Phi vs. Atlanta. If Indy had won the SB in 2003, the Pats would have opened in Indy on Thursday Night in 2004.

    I was just getting ready to reformat that because the copy and paste didn't work. I am glad you understood it.

    I would like to think he is just being funny because it couldn't be that an actual NFL player didn't know that the schedule's are already determined up until 2009. :rolleyes:

    He is right. The league structured a rematch of the conference championships because those teams were already on the schedule.

    Tampa actually played their rematch in Philly, not at home.

    If Pitt had played NE in the rematch, it would have been in Pitt.

    I hope Rodney literally rips Dallas Clark's head off of his body and throws it at Peyton Manning.

    Mostly wrong.

    The #1 rule the NFL follows now for scheduling the first game of the season is it's the SB winning team AT HOME. They pick the best game from those home games. In 2004 the Indy game was obviously the best, as a rematch. In 2005 the Indy game may have been the best in some ways but it would have been much less interesting to do it 2 years in a row and Randy Moss' trade to Oakland created interest. This year the MIA @ PIT game was judged the most interesting since it was *obviously* a preview of the AFCCG :)

    If Indy had won the SB in 2003 they would have still played here in 2004, that part was fixed years earlier. They just wouldn't have opened the season with us.

    Just my opinion,but I don't have any problem with what he said.
    He was whining slightly but in an amusing way,
    And really that's what the colts are whiners.
    It trickles down from their G.M. who always finds some excuse,Through their Q.B. and down to the rest of the team.
    The G.M. Always gives them an excuse for failure and they're only to willing to prove him right.:p
    When the pats win this week ,
    The "main course" whine will be the field conditions,with a "side course whine"
    If this game was in INDY!:rocker:

    The most important thing about his whining is that it's clear the Colts hate to play in New England. We're in their heads.

    Don't understand why he's complaining. IIRC, didn't we win the last time we played in Indy?

    Typical...funny...how you can never imagine a Patriot player saying this...Or for that matter you can never picture BB or SP accosting another team's employee.. The Dolts are pussies - one of the all time soft teams. They are the reinacarnation of the 80's Chargers. It starts at the top with the the head whiner, Bill NaPolian..."they hit us too hard"..."If you really want to see how soft they are, file this under "A picture says a 1000 words"...check out the highlights of the Pats 2005 smothering of them in the playoffs up at Gillette. This scene is on the DVD - Early in the game Manning throws a incomplete pass 3rd down pass to Dallas Clark (who got alligator arms). At the same time Tedy Bruschi gives Clark a shot and shout...you could almost hear what he is saying..."You're not pulling that **** up here..." But, the best part is the look on Clark's face as he scampers off the field...face down, clearly intimidated! He wanted no part of Tedy

    Who plays at home/away is completely predetermined, and whether a team wins the Super Bowl or not doesn't matter.

    I think you are reading waaaay too much into this. He was joking. Plus the ratings comment was likely the small market/large market thing.

    I seriously doubt anyone on the Pats cares about what he said and I think it's less likely any would be motivated by it.

    We know he's joking.

    He's still a total Pu**y for joking about 'unfairness' and is absolutely lining up excuses ahead of time. To even be thinking that way is failure already.

    typical colts behavior, but we wouldn't expect you to agree.
