Jim Caldwell is not a fan-friendly coach. I will not attend another game while he is coach. You go to see the Colts play football, not the second team. I feel cheated.

He may not second guess his decision, but I can promise you if they don't win the Super Bowl this will haunt him for years to come imo.

Pulling starters is like throwing a fight. Bettors have money riding on all sorts of things from whether the Colts cwill be undefeated, the spread in the game, etc. Caldwell's decision also affects other contenders. E.g., if the Steelers win next Sunday, they have to wait for the outcome of the Jets/Cinci game. What if Cincy does the same thing? This is so not right.

Nobody says it's right or wrong, and as far as Vegas and the betters, the NFL doesn't give a sh!t. If the coach feels resting his starters and not letting them risk injury by pulling them, that's his decision and he'll have to live with it. Vegas doesn't matter.
