Jim Irsay called out Manning on his twitter feed yesterday claiming that he is still paying him his salary for last year without him playing a single down and does not regret the decision and thinks it is the right thing to do...However on the other hand he feels Manning should not have spoken to the Media. Maybe Irsay forgot Manning was the one to introduce the walk away clause last year and has previously taken a pay cut to help sign other starters....they say a man's memory is short lived.
Quote from the article
""I don't think it's in a good interest to paint the horseshoe in a negative light, I really don't," Irsay said. "He's such a big part of that and everything else, but the horseshoe always comes first."
The quote also makes me think he has made up his mind on the divorce.Those are definetly not words of reconciliation.
It is extremely sad that this is the sorry state of affairs in Indy right now.Irsay would not have an profitable team and Lucas Oil if it were not for Peyton. Peyton will always be like a caged lion with this team.It is time to walk away when the owner starts calling you a politican after all that you have done for the city and team. It would be best for Peyton and the team.
