In Response to Re: Colts just blew it up.
[QUOTE]I for one am celebrating. For YEARS these guys managed to keep incredible amounts of talent together by some sleight of hand, and nearly had a couple more superbowls to show for it. Almost unfair that year after year they kept all these amazing guys and just kept rolling. NOW the payment has come due. NOW they will suffer. It's like watching your sister-in-law the crack addict get everything she ever wanted while you are busting your hump to get by. NOW the Clots reveal their true selves, both in the horrible "diving for draft picks" season and the public gutting of team and management. It gives me a THRILL that they only went to two superbowls and only won ONE. It's more than they deserve. This team is now the true CLOTS I always thought they were. And Peyton is done. He will leverage this mess into a decent contract, but will play poorly or not at all. He showed his true nature in the predatory contract he signed last year with FULL knowledge of his true medical condition. This man has been paid BIG money since day one in the league, but abused his standing, privilege, and position and exposed his team to ridicule by not being honest with them right away. Couldn't resist one more big payday, and he still can't. I hope the Dolphins sign him. That will be fun to watch. The magic is OVER.

^ Why does this current Indy situation, offer such an uncanny resemblance of plot with Jon Steinbach's novel, "Of Mice and Men."
Of Mice and Men-
Short story really given the similiar writing of it's day, further offering ease of readibility by being broken up into 6 "settings/books." Neither heady nor overly complicated for the reader...-And yet, still for some unexplainable reason, A tediously painfully boring and uninteresting story to get through, because it offers little if anything in terms of a character, or setting, or plot reality that any audience readily gives 2 cr#ps about empathizing with. The fact that it's impossible to come away with even of even the most modest types of novel insights or poignant ideas, doesn't help matters for "Of Mice and Men's" lasting appeal.
Let's see...set on a Farm/Ranch in Nowhereville, USA. Main protagonists are: 1 Angry guy with a dream, and his super hard-working r#tarded buddy as his constant companion. Angry guy really and trully cares VERY deeply about his r#tarded pal- Ehh, not really... I mean, he appears to at first, But the angry guy cares FAR more about the bigger, and largely pointless (yet unrealistic as well) Dream that he and half-w#t share in eventually "Owning the Farm." See, half-w#t keeps comin' up short and scr#win' things up in the end, inevitably hurting those around him. Upon the h#lf-w#t man-child accidentally strangling & suffocating the lady of the ranch (she asks him to brush her hair, guy doesn't understand his own strength, woman screams, he shakes her to stop the screams, And he breaks her neck in the process)- Angry constant companion ultimately realizes that his pairing with half-w#t will forever doom This "Great Dream" (i.e. small farm ownership in a 1 horse state), to failure... Considering h#lf-wit sealed his own fate and that the other townpeople are gonna do'em in anyways, Angry guy just puts a bullet in the back'a half-w#t's head and then calls it a day. Unfortunately, In the end, things such as "The Idea of your ideal dream which you share and believe in, with a companion whom does the same", Inevitably gets killed in the same process that'cha initially believed might instead help bring said dream into better fruition... And in the end, Noone cares anymore than they had when they opened the book and started reading on Page 1.
Curtain bow fro Angry Bill, half-w#t Peyton, and the Indianapolis Colts' lofty expectations in their dreams of modest glory.
