    Sorry to go off topic here. I was surfing the net, and I came across the indystar website. There is a pretty large colts forum on that site. I was reading the posts and a ton of them are about the patriots. They all consist of delusional colts fans bashing the pats, then spazing out when a pats fan makes a rational argument, telling them to "go to there own forum". The funny part is, none of the pats threads are ever started by pats fans. Always colts fans who spend the whole time obsessing over every move we make. Haha, most of em dont even know what they are talking about with contract numbers and moves we make. They dont seem to know much about football ,or how players get paid ( gauranteed money etc etc )

    Lol, we are not in there heads at all!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is it like that on every colts board? They win one sb out of the last 6 and they all the sudden think they are some kind of force? They act like we dont have 3 rings to there 1. I never really see any indy themed posts on here, or on other pats forums. Looks like they are pretty obsessed with the patriots over there.

    The Chargers thread made me go take a look at other forums. While the chargers fans are totally delusional ( most became fans last year) I expected more from the colts fans.

    It seems like we are a popular topic on most rival team's boards. On the Dolphins forum every other thread is abut us, and someone posted the very lengthy thread about us from a Chargers board.

    I wouldn't mind to talk less about the Colts. But I wouldn't say they are *everywhere* here. A lot of threads start out about the Patriots and then some Colts trolls make them become about the Colts.

    I agree... The number of threads are not even close. The other sites (at times) have more pats threads then threads dealing with there own teams. Just last week on that indystar board, there where more pats threads then colts ones. All started by colts fans.

    I think I would rather have had us lose to the Chargers because the Colts would have been murdered by them.

    I hear ya... Over there it seems like the colts fans are obsessed with the pats every move. Someone actually thought Stallworth was going to make 35 million bucks? They where razzing how dumb we were until a fellow colts fan's told them it was a one year deal for cheap money at little to no risk for the patriots. They then explained how nfl contracts worked and the poster said that Stallworth was arrested for drugs!

    hahahah....

    The Colts have alot more reason to be obsessed by us than we are them.

    We had a gut punch game this year - they have had double the pain.

    It probably doesn't help that they are allmost outnumbered by Patriots fans on that board, though the competitive part of me is amused by a rivals board being over-run.

    i noticed that....its the same for jets and dolphins forums too...all season long we talk about pats news, and they talk about pats news lol

    then the occasional aqua comes along and says the dolphins are going to take the East ....then followed by a 1-5 opening season record...

    I think we would be talking about the Colts a lot if they were making all the moves instead of us.

    Who says they haven't?

    This has been woefully undercovered on this board.

    I think they're scared. They see the 2nd best team in football last year upgrading their roster dramatically and the draft isn't even here yet and we had 2 1st round picks.

    Meanwhile, their FO has done nothing to upgrade their roster. They thought they had put us away for good but in reality, this team is loaded up for another lengthy run. I can imagine their frustration and hysteria disguised as "the Pats suck" threads.

    The Colts have spent the past 3 years loading up for one big run. How that they finally got the monkey off their backs, we're seeing the first signs of wear on their roster. Rhodes and Harper are gone. June to follow. The team is as close to cap hell as you get in the new CBA, and they are short a draft pick. Meanwhile, not only the Pats, but the Broncos and Jets upgrade too.

    First thing I noticed: a post claiming we are like the sox or yankees trying to buy a championship (clearly dont understand there is a salary cap and they spent more than us last year).

    Second thing: Half the posts end with "Go, Colts!" :rolleyes:

    To be fair, Pat fans have infested other boards, in particular the Indystar Colts board, ever since xxxvi, much moreso than the reverse.

    Half the threads you see there were started by Pats fans (& trolls) and most of the others by Colt fans trolling their own...:D.

    So they're obsessed with the Patriots... but you're here making a thread about them. Does that make you obsessed with their obsession?

    Be careful what you post here about the Dolts fans, Ryan the ballwasher and frontrunnerballbag, aka, Yankees/Colts might get their panties all in a twist and hit you with their purses..............

    No way man. The Chargers fanatics would have been lording it over us even worse than they do now on their messageboards. Right now they are at least in denial. If we hadn't knocked em off, they would be in full blown steroid rage right now about how they "own" the Pats.

    I can handle the Colts fans, most of them are rather reasonable people who understand that their team is on top but still on the short end of the rivalry stick.

    Its the delusional Chargers fans that are the worst. They think they still have the best team in the league after losing their entire original headcoaching staff, being knocked off by us in the playoffs on their own field, and after making very few moves to improve themselves this offseason compared to us.

    I was on the Indystar forum just before the Pats played Indy in the AFCCG to trade shots with Colts fans. I couldn't stand it for more than 30 minutes. Anytime a legitimate football comment was made, most of the replies came back either questionning Brady's sexual preferences, calling BB the devil, or so pathetically unreadable due to bad spelling and basic grammar mistakes. It was kind of disturbing. That's just my impression of the Indystar.

    I am still laughing at the idea that they can't understand why Pats doesn't have a #1 WR. In their minds, it seems there is only one system and there MUST be a #1 WR.

    I obsess over the Colts. I hate Peyton. I'm not ashamed o admit it. I hate that whole team, including Polian and yes Dungy.

    Nor do I believe that the Chargers would have beaten the Colts. The Chargers have a faux QB and they had a horrific offensive coord. in Camreon. The Colts on the other hand had guts, and they played heady football, and they were the best team in the league last year. Granted, I still suspect that D was all smoke and mirrors, but the Ravens, Patriots and Bears didn't have decent offenses which could have exploited that bad defense.

    Why are they obssessing about us? Didn't their all knowing GM say that we were done? :confused:
    They should be basking in the afterglow of their Super Bowl.:rolleyes:
    Polian said that our run is over...so it was written, so it shall be done.

    Yes , one thread based on an observation makes me obsessed. Maybe if I started several threads ( like I was commenting about ) I would be qualified as obsessed.:rolleyes:

    Most all of them are pretenders that started watching the chargers last year. Every response to anything is " nine pro bowlers". I wonder what will happen to the old chargers if they get a little injury bug. Imagine if Lt had to miss three or four games. I wouldent be worried about Merrimen.... That juice monkey got owned all day when we played them.

    Oh don't get me wrong. Indy certainly has some deluded, arrogant fans. But as a whole the Chargers fans are MUCH worse. That's all I'm saying. :)
