    There's a bit in Mike Reiss's Football Notes in today's print Globe (I haven't looked for it on-line) on the state of the Gillette Stadium field. In the course of it there is the following paragraph:

    "Colts president Bill Polian is believed to have expressed concern about the shoddy condition of the Patriots' home field to the league office; the Colts visit New England Nov. 5."

    Words fail me ...

    The guy is a big time a-hole.

    Don't forget the reported incident where he assaulted someone who worked for the Jets.

    There's a reason PFT has calls him "NaPolian."

    He is always planning ahead to have his excuses in place.

    It is online, there was a bit of commentary in the re-sod thread.

    Yeh, but I see players slipping and falling on the fancy new synthetic turf all the time too. Polian is playing his petty mind game, and it really does give him and his pet reporters a ready made excuse when they lose.

    And always trying to put the league under pressure. Sorry -- I missed the mention in the re-sod thread.

    #37 Jersey


    It's not the fact that the field is terrible. (which we all agree) It's the fact that Napolian doesn't complain till the dolts are coming in, and then he complains and the NFL get's involved:rolleyes:

    Why shouldn't Polian get to dictate his "rules" to the NFL? He's got a ton of rings and deserves more of them...:)

    "Hey. We play. That's what we do. We don't talk. We play. You come to Foxboro, it's gonna be snowin', it's gonna be cold. Come on in here! You wanna say all you want? You wanna change the rules? Change 'em! We still play, and we win. That's what we do."

    So sayeth Number 54, full tilt full time.

    eventually polian will complain to the league about belichick wearing those shaggy looking hooded sweatshirts.

    hes also working on a rule where teams are prohibited to run on the colts swiss cheese run Defense more than 5 times a game.

    I love Bill Polian. I hope he stays in Indy forever.

    His whining and excuse making have set the tone for that mentally fragile team for years. He has created an enviornment that from him, to the coach, to the players when things get tough they fold up and look for someone to blame. I hope it continues for another decade.

    Polian perplexes the hell out of me. He turns a crappy Bills franchise around, then gets fired because he didn't get along with the team's CFO. Then he goes to Carolina as their 1st GM and does well early by recruiting FA veterans, but then crumbles because he can't draft or manage the team's cap. For as much bashing we do about Indy, they are a decent franchise, but clearly doesn't spend $$ on the right things (no impact D players). He Here is the guy with an outstanding profrssional resume, but finds the time to needle the Pats on pass interference stuff, playing surfaces, etc.. He clearly is one of those guys we all know at the office that always thinks it's someone elses fault that they never got that big promotion. Insecure nerd.

    Would the hypothesis that he is good at his job but a complete *sshole help to resolve your perplexity?

    Haha! Maybe I tried too hard to psychoanalyze the guy. Maybe all those close but no cigar runs of the teams he put on the field just made him a bitter man who has taken his jeliously of the Pats success to a catty-like level.
