I don’t know why people take Jim Irsay’s Twitter account so seriously. It is filled with hyperbole and nothing to get excited over.
It was never going to be a blockbuster trade, now matter how much the wind was blowing. It was a nice trade, it was newsworthy, but it wasn’t anything earth shattering.
I am not exactly sure why Irsay is mad, he got the better of the trade.
Colts owner Jim Irsay, who had been tweeting up a storm in recent days regarding a possible secret trade, addressed critics of the deal in no uncertain terms.
“If u don’t like it buy ur own team and try to make the playoffs 9 seasons n a row n put together 7 straight 12 win seasons n a row as Owner!” he ranted on Twitter. “U can do all your judgmental chirpin’ U want, it’s not about subjective opinions…it what you DO n what your track record shows! CHECKMATE!”
I think Peyton Manning had more to do with that than Irsay, but I digress.
