I moved to Chicago 12 years, I wish I could be there to celebrate and support my Colts. I missed Indianapolis badly, I'm here wearing Colts jerseys and Bears fans hate me. Oh well beat the Pats for me Colts, every TD I'll drink 2 beers straight none stop. Colts fans are #1 in the world.

I predict a sober night for you. On the other hand, Brady will probably throw 5-6 TD passes today.

Go Patriots!

Thank you to the loyal Colt season ticket holders that sold our group or game tickets!

I just passed thru the downtown area about an hour before the game.

I saw people walking down the streets with open containers of alcohol.

I saw dozens of drunks staggering in the streets daring drivers to hit them.

What I didn't see were any policemen doing anything about it.

It's always good to see where our tax money goes and how it benefits ALL of us in Indianapolis.

I can answer your qustion. All of the policeman were told to go work at the dome for crowd contol. Its all about the Colts.
Vote Peterson out of office and vote for Greg Ballard. He will tell Irsay to go to hell!

Good Colts fans understand prohibited behavior before, during and after the game in or outside. That's what makes an enjoyable trip to the game or Indianapolis for the whole family-especially those with kids.
Rowdy, threatening, or inconsiderate behavior such as standing in the aisles, portals or concourses, profane, intimidating, degrading, and abusive language, smoking in prohibited areas, fighting, and drunkenness will not be tolerated and can result in ejection, arrest, and/or loss of season ticket privileges. Throwing of any objects in the stands, including paper and plastic cups will also be prohibited. Should you observe any of this disruptive behavior, please notify your nearest law enforcement officer.

Violators are subject to arrest.

I've lived here for 60 years and what my family an I witnessed this afternoon was as bad as the old snake pit at the 500.

This is getting out of hand and need to be stopped before someone gets killed.

If you think staggering through the streets of Indianapolis and endangering others while in a drunken stupor is a party or somehow make Indy "some-place" top be you are sadly mistaken.

Most of the fans were having a good time. However, there is an element that is clearly out of control and I want to see something done about it.

When did it become legal to drink on the streets of Indianapolis?

More of the Ballard name calling and negativity...how can this man possibly think he could be the leader of this city?

Hey, folks, thanks again for buying me that new stadium. Sure am looking forward to all the money I will be making. Ha ha!
Oh well

It was a good game....we just didn't come out on top this time. I can't believe that the offense couldn't get a TD with 1st and goal on the 9 twice. Better luck next time.
