Yes...thankfully no 300lb grown men dressed in padding from head to toe (including helmets) were not perminately injured...by a snow ball.
I guess the Colts have everyone in Indiana conditioned to be a bunch of whiney bitches.
Assume Kraft’s motives are anything you want...the bottom line is that he's doing a good thing here. So to criticize him for it is just plain ignorant.
You're missing the point. Throwing an object, even a snowball has the potential to cause physical injury when tossed from a distance. But, according to you, none of them hit anyone but well protected football players. I guess there where no children attending the game that day.
As for Kraft. He knows a good publicity stunt when he sees it and will get as much mileage as he possibly can with it.
And the name calling shows real maturity. I bet you were one of the proud snowballers since you saw nothing wrong with it.

you sure can tell a colts fan:

wasn't there a little story about manning and a collage girl?- no problem

receiving a team that moved from another city in the middle of the night - no problem

linemen calling out snap counts during the game, which is against the rule - no problem

playing a lame duck game and colluding with another team while other teams are still trying to make the playoffs - no problem

thousands of people booing a 14 year old girl, i don't care what the reason was IE the jersey or what, it was her time to shine.- no problem

getting the NFL to change rules because your team can't take being hit - no problem

pats tom Brady having a child - oh my god a biblical violation

pats placing a camera where it shouldn't be - oh my god they cheated

throwing snowballs at bulletproofed men 100 or more feet away - oh my god those killers should pay for their crimes.

Kraft doing something good for a teenage girl - oh my god he doesn't want to help her he only want more publicity then he already has received this whole year so far.

You're missing the point. They were snow balls...don't be such a pussy about it.

What do children attending the game have to do with it? It is a real stretch to say that children in the stands were put in danger by snowballs be thrown on the field.(see my statement above)

Maybe so, but the bottom line is that he is doing a good thing for the girl that YOUR FANBASE wronged. You're trying to justify it by saying something along the lines of "it was ok to do that because your team did something worse".

But it wasn't even worse. You probably can't find a professional athlete that has not had beer, food or whatever thrown on him in an other team's stadium. That comes with the territory, the players get paid big $$ to deal with it and it happens just about every where. I'm not saying it's right, just saying it is not worse than inviting a little girl across the county to honor her on national TV and live in front of 80,000 people, then booing her when she gets there. Your stinking city has no right to judge anyone's "class" after that.

To critize what Patriots fans do is hypocritical.

To continue to feel superior as people is arrogant.

To try to find ways to justify that you are still better because someone's fans did something worse is lame.

That's my real point here.

I didn't name-call until this post. What I said that your actions (of critizing someone for doing the right thing when you doing the wrong thing was the reason for it) were ignorant. That is not name calling. Calling you a pussy because you are rambling on an on all over the internet about how dangerous a snow ball is...now that's name calling. And it's done in a way to highlight and draw attention my point, NOT to distract from the facts because I can't come up with anything better to say.(big differce from telling everyone to switch to decaf)

That's some messed up logic there. Actually I was miles away during that game...not even in the country. But I like how you tried to prove your point there, not with a rebuttle arguement with information making your point, but rather with false accusations to discredit me. That decaf seems to be working real well for you.

Fact the facts. While both instances were dumb things to do. The verbal booing of a jersey is not as serious as the potential physicial injury posed to people in a crowded stadium by the throwing of an object, like a snowball, from a great distance at a downward angle.
Defend it all you want. But, that won't change the reality of it.

"Fact the facts" (whatever that means)- they are SNOW balls. Fresh snow (not even a chance to ice up). I didn't here the Jet's players crying about the "danger"...just you.

The Patriots won by 9 today. How did the Colts do?

Don't fool yourself. Just becuase the media is alway proclaiming that Indy has so much class doesn't mean it's true. In fact the little girl said that fans admitted to her that they were not booing at Phillip Rivers.
From my observations and from viewing these message boards the top 3 classless fans are:
1. Pittsburg
2. Philadelpia
3. Indianapolis
I am not saying that New England fans are angels, but definately far ahead of the fans of these teams. Of couse, that is a generalized statement. There are exceptions, but I'm saying for the most part.
The media wants to put a "falling from grace" spin on the Patriots, and the general public has bought it hook line and sinker.
Try spelling our cities correctly and maybe we'll behave better, nimrod.

WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!!

And for the record, Amy Grant was also booed by Chargers fans!!!!!!!!!!

PS.
America hates the Patriots, why the hell else would there every single pick in the 2008 draft get booed. Hell I remember one of my Colts picks in this years draft was right before A pick of the Pats and like either right after or a little into when they selected their pick, here comes the boos that got even louder when the Pats were on the clock.

Every single NFL fan except for maybe div. oponets and of course Pats fans were cheering the New York Football Giants like crazy in the draft with their every single pick. Hhhhhhhhhmmmmmm wonder why??

Go Colts and Manning!!!!!!!!!!

America loves ya!!!!!!!!!!
