Passing thought on SB Karma . . .

Passing thought on SB Karma . . . 



Dear John Elway,
You really can't buy a SB championship
at the One Stop Shop.  You gotta do it
the old fashioned way and build it one
defensive player at a time. (Defense does
win championships.)  Decker has a great
future but Manning and Welker should
be playing in a senior bowl somewhere.

BTW -  I never liked you since you stiffed
the Colts way back when.  I know we're
talking a different city now, but consider
Manning the Colts revenge . . .  8-]



If you ain't the lead dog . . . 
           don't complain about the view . . .

Agree. I will always hold a grudge against Elwuss. Similarly my feelings towards Indy make it hard for me to be a Manning fan.

As a kid, Elway was my favorite. I didn't know or understand what he did back then. I felt like karma was gonna get him this year.

He wouldn't report to the Colts, insisting he would play baseball instead. Bob the Drunk Owner traded him to Denver for nothing, without telling GM Ernie Accorsi a thing about it. We all hated Elway, and a lot of us feel that the Colts with him would have had a popularity resurgence that would have prevented the move to Indy.

Many have mellowed and see Elwuss in a less unfavorable light now. I guess I am that way but I still hold a grudge.

IMO, the resentment for Elway is misplaced. His problem was not with he City of Baltimore. He didn't want to play for Irsay. I don't blame him for trying to avoid that. Not only did Irsay make a mess of the Colts. Big Bob was a drunk and a liar from the day he bought the team.

Not only was he going to play baseball, it would have been with the spankees, that was strike two.

Strike three was bad-mouthing our crabcakes.

Arrogant horse-faced a-hole.

Can anyone blame him for not wanting to play for "the Devil on Earth"???  I read that Bert Jones strongly advised Elway to do whatever it took to avoid coming here, as long as Embarrassing Bob was at the helm.

I was at the Elway Game in '83, and screamed for his head every time he set foot on the field (that afternoon was the loudest I'd ever heard ol' Memorial Stadium).  So yes, my hatred for Smelway was intense.  I've since decided that it's foolish to think "if Elway had signed here, the Colts never would've left," because obviously Irsay had one foot out the door by then, anyway.  He was all too eager to trade Elway in order to further alienate the fanbase, IMO.

You old-school posters need to get over this colts thing. Especially Elway. Irsay could have drafted Marino, and didn't.

You need to know why things are..

I assume by your ignorant post you were not alive during the Irsay reign of terror in Baltimore.
 

Us "old school" posts were here. We understand what it means to see a great franchise destoyed in front of our own eyes. Our history ripped from our hearts.
Thats why we appreciate what we have now..
Since you we not around, It's a Baltimore thing you wouldn't understand.

No I was alive, I'm 35. The Colts left when I was six. I just don't give a ****. 

Great franchise? The Colts were garbage before they left. You're currently on the ground floor of a great franchise, why not try enjoying it for a change?

As for a Baltimore thing, I'm more Baltimore on my worst day than you will ever be. My stripes will never be in question. You? Probably a county guy that appreciates from a distance. It's cool, just be yourself. Just recognize that you're old and no one cares about the colts that isn't in line for an AARP membership.

That has nothing to do with anything. You do realize that FIVE quarterbacks were selected in the '83 draft before Marino, right?

As I wrote, I'm pretty much over the Elway hate, and the Colts move in general, despite growing up bleeding blue-and-white.  But citing Marino is completely irrelevant to the discussion.

Re: Passing thought on SB Karma . . . 


Glad Seattle won for a few reasons...

1. I'll never like Elway, had he come here it might have prevented the team from moving and me missing out on having a local football team in my childhood.

2. Tired of hearing what a GENIUS GM Elway is. REALLY? Is it SO hard to sign Peyton Manning? Many teams were courting him. Signing Wes Welker? WOW that is SUCH a GENIUS move, NO ONE could have thought of that one.

3. After seeing Seattle lose Super Bowl XL* it was great seeing them get some payback. That game was a complete farce. I lost a lot of respect for the league after that one.

So don't tell those of us who grew up on the Colts, lived and died every fall Sunday with the Colts, to get over it. Because you were barely out of diapers when they left to understand what the franchise ment to us "old schoolers" before Irsay destroyed it..

I remember losing to the Jets, I remember beating the Cowboys. I remember ghost to the post, th eplane crash in the stands.  I watched Unitas, Matte, Jones, Carr  and Mitchell. Curtis, Bubba and Laird. 
  
 I still have my "It's payday Elway" hat from that game when I sat with 4 of my bufddies in the center field stands in the blazing heat screaming at that wuss.
I was getting ready for work when the TV reports were coming in about moving vans at the Colts complex. I remember walking into work that morning, normally a busy loud environment and it was dead silent except for the TV.

I remember 12 years of no football team to call my own.

I remember taking my Dad to the first Ravens Colts game and watching him tear up because his beloved Colts were now the enemy.

And if not for the Colts leaving you wouldn't have a great franchise to cheer for today..

Learn your heritage to appreciate what you have now.

So don't EVER tell me to get over it !!

Ditto, ravmaniac.  Nice post, you got there before I did.

Regardless of age, this clown's posts are among the most ignorant ever posted on this site.

Well, not exactly correct.  The problem was, for the most part, his dad had a huge problem with Frank Kush, who was the Colts head coach at the time.  They were enemies and he didn't want his son to play for him.  Bert Jones, from what I've heard, did talk to Elway and tell him to stay far away from Irsay, and that may have played a part in it as well, but the main issue was Kush.

I hated Elway at the time, just like every other Baltimoron.  But, years later, I totally understood it.  Kush was a joke, Irsay was an idiot and Elway absolutely made the right choice.

   disbelief   They don't know, they just don't know. The Colts meant everything to this city.
They didn't call Memorial stadium the world largest outdoor insane asylum for no reason.

And for the record, born, raised and still live in Baltimore. I've seen the Colts win Championships and I've seen the Orioles win championships.

And I've watched both decimated by azzhole owners..

And my children, who won't be AARP members for a while, as well as many others, I'm sure, know the story and will be able to carry it through to future generations.thumbup.gif

I'll never forget parking in that damn lot where they put all the cars in bumper to bumper.  Without fail, the people that parked around me were always the LAST ONES out of the stadium!mad

Re: Passing thought on SB Karma . . . 


there is/was a great show on ESPN about the whole Elway fiasco. I suggest some of you try to watch it, or find it...learn something.
