    Sorry for the negativity, but...

    ...I remember the misses in the Miami and Denver games, and how similar misses will contribute to the Colts downfall in 2006.

    That, and all the game winning kicks.

    That's the spirit - just like Sox fans - it's a wonder anyone ever dares to leave us, we're such loyal fans. Well I guess someone wanted him.

    Thanks for everything, Adam. Because without you stepping up on a snowy night in December 2001 there might not have been anything - including Lombardis and geniuses and HOF careers.

    Hell, Bledsoe might still be here. :eek:

    Some day I will be able to say 'thanks" to Adam. But not now and not while he wears that friggin Colts uniform.

    Right now, I feel I've been Logan Mankins in the nuts.

    No negativity? If he was going to the Packers...or Cowboys I'd certainly wish him the best and than him for what hes done but he kicked us in the balls signing with our enemy(a rivalry which is getting more and more heated). He sold us out, the memories of the snow kick, the superbowl kicks and even recently the kick to put away the Steelers and the Falcons, all those...I am SICK to think about them anymore. I wish him the worst for all eternity. No thanks to a traiter who could have signed the contract with the Pats not at all worse the Indy's deal, the only thing he did was make us angry, make us feel bad and we showed our love for Vinataeri and everything he did for all of what he did, and in return to that he just says, "**** it, I'm going to the Colts to piss you all off"

    PS. If Vinataeri ever hits a clutch field goal on us, it will be the worst kick in the balls anyone could ever experience.

    Thanks, Adam, for your best efforts when you played for the Patriots.

    Everyone? He owed us nothing. If it's OK for the team to cut any player, it's OK for an out of contract player to sign for anyone they feel like for any reason whatsoever.

    Adam owed us nothing other than his best effort, same as McGinest didn't, same as Givens didn't, same as Milloy didn't, same as Law didn't. Thanks, and good luck, to them all.

    You just dont get it. We've thanked him and loved him all these years and he repayed us by signing with the Colts. Yes he is free to sign where he wants, but the Colts wanted him to kick the Patriots in the ass and laugh, and Vinataeri was glad to go along with it. We did NOTHING but praise him perhaps more than any other Patriot, we did NOT deserve this, and the Colts are such a classless organization, doing things to piss off the Patriots.

    Get over yourself. I am sure this is what Adam had on his mind when he signed his last contract. Thanks Adam for the best years in New England Patriots history. There was not one player who did more for us in winning two of those Superbowls then you. I'm disappointed that you didn't re-up with the Patriots, but I also don't know everything that went on between you and the patriots. Good luck, we'll all be rooting against you.

    Your about 10% right in your post and 90% wrong. I agree we will be hoping he chokes. But if it was on his mind, was his heart truly with New England? He signed for not a lot more money than the Pats offered him. If his heart was more important than 500 k, he'd be staying here. Screw him. His legacy is great but he didnt seem to care for it.

    I have been ranting on about burning hatred towards him in other threads but there is no denying the admiration I had for AV in his time here. He is/was a Patriots hero and I will always remember him as such. However, for the next season or so he can go f*** himself.

    Holy ****!!! I read this tonight on cnnsi and could not believe my eyes!!!! Did something tear a hole in the universe or what?? Wow, what an offseason...well I do want to wish Adam luck in all his future endeavors, I can't believe it, Indy.....holy ****. Anyways, I am still kind of in shock. I guess the best way to beat him would to keep the game close, but certainly not within three points...we all know what adam can do....AV in a colts uni....holy ****....

    Thank you for two, and quite possibly the third, Superbowl victories. I'd wish him luck in Indy, but I'd be lying.

    News to the thousands of people who do, every year :) The towns don't give a damn about each other, and the universities are definitely in a friendly rivalry. Saying that, half of my best friends have spent time at the Cowley Road Polytechnic, as it happens... At least with Brookes', Oxford has a proper university now! (Of course, they say we've all got webbed feet from living in the Fens. Maybe that's why we row faster than they do.)

    AV going to the Dolts of all teams is a kick in the teeth, sure, but it's almost certainly not personal - taking it personally is just a bit classless, I reckon.

    That's very interesting stuff. Quite apropos of nothing, guv.

    Many of us are emotionally tied to this team and its players. Tough not to have a personal reaction to it, I reckon.
