The Colts Must Relax Their Media Policy

No one likes a loser. We, or most of us, are Americans after all. It’s our God-given right to be front runners. When a team hits 0-12, it’s only natural that the local media will be hard on them. While the fans have been remarkably patient this season, many of those who cover the Colts […]
