Whenever you guys complain about it when he says fair weather fans. Ask your would you still support this team if they were as bad as the Jacksonville Jaguars. Some of you will some of you won't. At the end of the day there are some people that I have randomly met that have said they cannot support the Colts due to the fact that they have released the Peyton and some key players. That doesn't mean you all have done this. The simple fact is many people not all of course are used to this team without Peyton and don't believe Andrew Luck will live to the hype. Hey I can't blame them but when your team goes 2-14 and then tickets don't sell out its due to the fact that people are not use to losing. S#@t its hard telling people I'm a Indy fan after last season but I will stick with them until I know it's time to jump ship. When people that support this team are being called "fair weather" it's not calling us diehard fans that "Bleed" blue that but the few that don't care enough to feel how we feel that. Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Cleveland don't have this problem and those people will (maybe) die for their teams. Now for the people that can't afford or make it to these games why are you even offended there is nothing you can do. It's not like the stadium will be empty but some people are just scared to watch their team lose. I live in New York and people support the Jets more than the Giants. I don't know why this is and they have not one since the 60s. The Browns have never won a Superbowl but they still have die hard fans. Maybe people in Indianapolis feel disrespected that they are being called a "fair weather" city but you as fan should not. I know you guys on this website all love this team but that doesn't change the fact that many in Indianapolis are just afraid for what this season holds and due to the economy don't want spend money on a losing team. That's fine but if look at it from another angle if you were always spending money on this team before when Manning was here then stopped all of sudden wouldn't that then give you the title of a fair weather fan? At the end of the day though I love the fact you guys still stand by this team like I have I only wish this site had more people like the New York sites more people seem to put up fan posts and comments. One love people and sorry for mistakes I hate proof reading lol.
