These are the Colts that we’re used to seeing anymore.
These aren’t the same Colts that you could pencil in year after year to win the AFC South. Obviously Colts fans realize that with the statistic that 3,000 season tickets have yet to be sold for the upcoming 2012 season. Even with Andrew Luck at the helm, this Colts team is 2-3 years away from competing in the AFC South again.
So excuse me if I’m not surprised at this because one thing is for certain, fans don’t pay to see losing. Sometimes even the diehards don’t. Why pay out the wazoo for a shellacking when you can watch “300″ for free at home.
Colts have a long ways to go to be a mirror of the old Colts, just don’t expect many fans to pay to watch them 8 games a year until then.
