“At this point, Mr. Irsay and I owe it to each other and to the fans of the organization to handle this appropriately and professionally, and I think we will,” Manning said, which arguably implies that he believes Irsay’s remarks were neither appropriate nor professional. “I’ve already reached out to Mr. Irsay. I wasn’t trying to paint the Colts in a bad light, but it’s tough when so many people you’ve known for so long are suddenly leaving. I feel very close to a lot of these guys and we’ve done great things together. It’s hard to watch an old friend clean out his office. That’s all I was trying to say.
“I just want to keep rehabbing and working hard, and when the time is right for Mr. Irsay and I to sit down, I look forward to a healthy conversation about my future. I’ve worked too hard and have such great respect and have so many great relationships inside the building and out, and it’s incredibly important that those remain.”
This scenario is so wretched that all of a suddenly I, Kravitz looks like the reasonable and considerate one. It's like we've entered the Bizarro world of the Bizarro world.
you know ive been a colts fan for all my life (im only 21) and in the 13 years manning has been in indy, he has never called jim Irsay, by "Mr. Irsay" he did for a few seasons, but it hasnt happened in years, every colt fan knows that, i hope its just me reading too much into this. but i think thats a sign something is up. sides are totally on edge.
Exact point I've been making in other places on his topic. Its neither side's fault, if anyone's to blame, its the agent Condon but even he was just doing his job. It's the perfect storm and the only thing here is Irsay is finding it hard to make the break.
