Not only 'Papa John" but Dave Letterman too. That has to get them some points.

Personally, I don't believe in a move. Whilst it would make sense in terms of logistics (FedEx, Kickoff, venues) and operating cost (lower cost of living), the move would swallow a lot of money, and move FIRST away from the prestigeous MIT, and Dean. Sure, Indy and Indiana have a lot of good teams, but so do other cities and states. Tradition, unfortunately, has no bearing on this decision, though. Tradition cannot be measured in return on investment, and is out of the modern location management's decision process.

Having said that ... I'd love to have FIRST be in my home town

Yep, pretty much. You know this crazy ChiefDelphi... nothing but useless information and kids ranting about pizza.

Anyway, I'm surprised nobody thought of tapping into the sports teams here?

Re: FIRST moving to Indy?

Maybe we could introduce Dean to Jim Ursay, then we could just pull up a Mayflower moving van to the Manceser HQ and move the whole thing here overnight. Worked once, anyway.

Letterman also worked as a bag boy at a local grocery store (now closed) on the north side of Indy.

Now I take offense to this. Mayflower did the moving, Robert Irsay made the decision and Jim Irsay doesn't seem as bad... yet.

*start sad background music* I had to grow up in a city where there was no professional football. Such a storied history of the Baltimore Colts lost; an owner out to screw the world, and all of us growing up without a team in our home town. Even the great Baltimore Colts (Johnny U) didn't want their history moved. *end sad background music*

But then again, we got rid of a bad owner, and got the Modell family, a new team, a Super Bowl victory, and a new museum And the Irsay's, well they're in the same place again 20 years later.

Maybe FIRST should just move to the Baltimore/DC area that way they are closer to all those politicians. Plus they won't have to move again 20 years from now.

Unitas We Stand

Re: FIRST moving to Indy?

All of us have heard that they're moving to Indy... and not just from David, either.

Jeez... believe me, David was NOT lying when he said reliable sources...
