    Nah, I think it's just the Niners sucking. They are pretty good at it.

    Do you have any insight into how often they will play with the roof open? My assumption would always unless rain/snow or heat/cold outside the bounds of comfort for the fans (>80 or <40 or something like that).

    You are right this would/should be a rules violation as it gives one team a distinct advantage over the other......and you are also correct.....that it helps them DURING the game.........But, being that this is Polian.....this will be swept under the rug....

    They haven't come out and said yet, but I would guess it's probably pretty close to your thoughts. The new stadium is huge. It's right next to the dome and it towers over it.

    Thanks for the info.

    BTW, I know you guys get flamed from time to time, but I kind of like having perspectives from the Colts' side on this board.

    You all do realize that Domed stadiums are louder then open air stadiums because the sounds bounces off the roof and comes back down, so I guess we do pump in our own noise but its by our own fans via our screaming and yelling and it bouncing off the roof and coming back down...

    They have been the Patsies since I was 10 years old, that was 39 years ago. They are my favorite sports team, actually my only sports passion. I use that term with reverence. It is a term of affection, if one can display affection for a spots team.

    I'm afraid you're in the minority here... I also recognize the term "Patsies" as insulting, much as calling the Jets the "Jests". Do you know in general what it means to call someone a patsie?

    There is a quote from a Pats fan on the Colts board that he was responding to something similar....

    I thought it was clever.

    -I post on the internet all day, and let me tell you...all those people who post on the internet all day, really need to get a life.-

    :)

    Here's where someone calls me a name for no apparent reason.

    I think that this is a generational issue. For instance, if you heard an older person say, "we had a gay time." You would understand that they are not talking about gender. You would simply understand that they are saying that a good time was had by all.

    The term Patsie is derogatory at the present time. But language changes. It was not a bad thing to say back when Grog's was slingin it.

    Sorry if you find it insulting, it isn't meant to be. They will always be the Patsies to me and it will never mean anything derogatory.

    Odd. I'm in my mid-30s, and Patriots or Pats is fine, and Patsies is an insult, like Dolts, Bungles or Jests.

    I've no idea how you can see it any other way. The very meaning of the word "Patsy" flies in the face of it being a term of reverence.

    Yeah, pretty much Patsy is an insult whether intended or not.

    the thing is, words actually MEAN things. Words don't mean what you want them to mean, they mean what they mean. Admittedly, most people use words wrong, but that doesn't really excuse it. And just because someone doesn't know what the word means, doesn't make it less offensive when they use it. Actually, ignorance is usually equally or more offensive.
