For the Boycotting Colts Fans.

I originally posted this to Stamped Blue but somebody recommended posting if over here as well. So, here it is.

The Schism.

Ok. Can we be done with this now? No more bashing BigBlueShoe, no more bashing the people who bashed him, no more bashing DZ, no more bashing shake,  just bashing on Houston fans and the Patriots. But seriously. This thing just needs to end. There's been less talk on this site about football then there has been on "the schism."

It all got big in the offseason when everyone just wanted real football to start, instead of watching injury reports, scrambling over the newly released depth chart, and analyzing every word that came out of Caldwell's mouth. Finally when the preseason came along, that didn't help anything, because we all know the preseason matters very little to the Colts.

Now the regular season's here, and we are all on the same side. The side of the quarterback with a laser-rocket-arm and four MVP trophies. The side with two mad-men defensive ends who apparently only need 2.5 seconds to get to the backfield. The side of a wide receiver who may not like his contract... but comes out and dominates anyway, because he's a Colt. The side of 49 other men who go out every day and play like a Colt, and I wish I had time to list em all. Well, thanks to copy and paste... I can.

That's our team. And I don't care what happened between people before. I guess some people may not be able to forgive and forget,  and I'm not saying you're stupid if you can't/won't.

It's over. If you want to support the Colts by reading Colts news, analysis, and comments, then do it. Let's make this about football again, and a community of Colts fans. That means don't bash. If you don't think something is credible (anonymous e-mail BBS trusts) then don't trust it! A lot of what is said on here is opinion. A lot of it is wrong! You don't have to agree with all of it! But, I'll continue to support SB and BBS, as well as 18to88 and DZ and Brett and Coltzilla (and King Richard, if you get the 12th Horseman up to speed). Because they're all dedicated to one thing. And that's my India-fricken-napolis Colts. So let's be a community again. One that persistently defends the greatest quarterback of all time against all the Brady-lovers. One that is ready to see the Colts roll to a title in 2011.
