    Let me first make one thing clear - I AM NOT COMPLAINING here. I think it's funny. Okay?

    Last night during one (continually repeated) segment on Pats-colts Super Bowl 41 1/2, they did the usual - one report from Indy on the Colts, then one report from Foxboro "on" the Pats. So I watch the first one, no problem - I don't hate the Colts so much, they're a good team. I think Polian's a tool and I don't like Dungy for his sanctimony and rampant homophobia, but whatever, no problem. Ed Werder signs off, sends it over to...Wendy Nix (or something)?

    She then goes on to file her report from Foxboro - several locker room clips/quotes from Rosey and Faulk, which are...all about the Colts, what they do, how good they are. The report is supplemented by - yep-you-guessed-it - footage of the Colts scoring touchdowns. Against the Pats.

    It reminded me of that "joke"/phrase, "But enough about me, what do YOU think about me?"

    Can't wait for Sunday night. We are going to KICK THEIR TEETH IN and leave everyone at ESPN as close to speechless as they ever get. No one in the media seems to connect the dots of the fact that this kind of Colt-love happened CONSTANTLY in 2003 and 2004. "The Colts have yet to punt!" "The Pats secondary is shot!" "Richard Seymour will not play!"

    Yeah yeah, whatever. WE'LL GO WIN ANYWAY NOW, dipsticks. Ha ha.

    I like the fact that the Patriots are deferring the attention to the Colts. The Pats deserved the respect in 01, 03, & 04 as champs, and they are giving it to the Colts now. Even with a win, you'll hear many of them say that it's not that big of a deal.
    I don't care what the media says, the Pats are conducting themselves with the utmost class. I didn't see Kraft lobbying for rule changes, or lambasting the poor reffing in the AFCCG.
    Hopefully, they will exact a small measure of revenge this week, play down it's significance, and move on to bigger things. That is what will hurt the Colts and their fans the most.

    Ya basically game 1 of this three loss deal we had to deal with the duane starkes era which was horrendous. I just don't know what happened there.

    Then game two we had to endure the struggling offense and wr's and resulted in pats 5 turnovers and colts 2 turnovers and pats lost by 7 only.

    Then game three the championship game on the colts homefield we endure many things(flu, wr's, calls, lack of personnel).

    If anyone thinks the colts are on the pats level thy can think it, but those three losses were pretty competitive games and I think the media has done more to hype the monkey off manning's back thing.

    Well said. Especially the last paragraph; you are quite right. In spite of the hype, I just wish we blow them out and go ahead. As you said "play down its significance and move on..."

    Nice!!

    I actually thought the same thing...they go to the Patriots side and all they show is the freaking Colts offense during the report...God I hope we slaughter them...
