Kyle has been an avid Colts fan since he was old enough to understand the game of football. He is an active member of the Colts’ blogging community, and got his start as an active reader and contributor on blogs such as 18to88, Coltzilla, and Stampede Blue. He has also been the Colts Featured Columnist for Bleacher Report, and most recently started the fan blog Coltsider in the fall of 2011, before joining Colts Authority upon its onset.
The obsessive hobby, however, has become something more, and Kyle now works full-time as a sports writer, both as an NFL blogger and a high school sports reporter for the MLive Media Group, Michigan’s largest media organization.

Hi! My name is Greg! I’ve been a Colts fan for as long as I can remember, probably due to some weird fascination with pain and misery. I live in Canada -I used to live in Indianapolis and I would love to make my way back one day – with my beautiful wife and two absolutely perfect children. I’ve been writing and podcasting about the Colts for the past 3 years. I have a slight addiction to twitter and should probably seek professional help.

Laura Calaway is a behavior change management consultant who has dabbled in amateur sports writing since 2009. She fell in love with the game of football as a young girl, when players like Vince Ferragamo, Eric Dickerson, and Nolan Cromwell graced her father’s TV screen (Laura grew up in L.A.). She was originally a fan of the Raiders, and still has a soft spot for Howie Long and Marcus Allen.
In 1991 she decided to root for a less “thuggy” team, and – not wanting to appear to be a bandwagon jumper – chose the 1-15 Colts. The fact that Sean Dawkins, one of her contemporaries and favorite players at Cal, soon joined the team only sealed the deal.
Known as “LovinBlue” in the Colts blogging community, Laura has a particular interest in player injuries and team dynamics. She has an undergraduate business degree from Cal and MBA from Wharton.

Ben lives in Pittsburgh with his wife and dog, doing boring editing work and looking forward to the evenings, when he can watch the same play 15 times to determine which lineman was at fault for a pressure. He vividly remembers every Colts playoff loss since the mid-90s (curse you, Vanderjagt) and hasn’t slept well for roughly a week after each of them. He enjoys scotch, Coen brothers movies and obscure TV show references.

Scott has taken a unique path to Colts’ fandom: hailing from Pittsburgh, he’s followed the Colts since 2002. The desire to experience real quarterback play (not the likes of Neil O’Donnell and Kordell Stewart) was a huge draw to the Colts and Peyton Manning.
With credit to his OCD over keeping records and his interest in statistics, Scott has created and maintained a variety of NFL-related data over the last eight years, with his research and writing featured on sites such as Pro-Football-Reference, Football Nation and Cold, Hard Football Facts.
His interest in Colts’ blogs began with 18to88.com a few years back, and since a lot of his work revolves around the Colts, it would only make sense for it to land on Colts Authority. Scott now writes exclusively for Football Outsiders, but contributes to the Colts Authority Annual and co-hosts CA Radio’s Inside the Writer’s Block.

Lou studies at the University of Toronto, up in Canada; his hobbies include arguing on ESPN forums, reading fantasy novels, and doing “colouring” projects (that’s how you spell it here … sigh). Don’t worry though – his time living in Lafayette turned him true blue for life. This comes to his advantage during Arrested Development conventions.
Lou decided from a young age to hate Boston sports, and therefore cheers against the Pats, Bruins, Celtics, and Red Sox. Since 2002, those teams have won eight championships. This is my life with sports.
