I just read this tasty little statement and thought since I am the intrepid blogger/gossip monger that I claim to be that I should print it here so that you, my loyal reader(s), can enjoy:
“We would like to dispel any misperception that there might be any hard feelings between us. Since 1998, we have enjoyed a great relationship, based upon mutual respect and trust. We have always been able to talk and address matters we’ve faced over the years, not just as owner and player, but as friends. We had a long talk today and we want to assure Colts fans everywhere that we are both committed to maintaining our close relationship and to working together through any challenges the future may bring.”
Translation--we acted like idiot children. We see that now, and we have decided to keep the rest of our spat in-house until it is done and over with. Where Peyton will be next year is still up in the air. Stay tuned for more details.
This statement is not a surprise as all. What was surprising was the fact that these guys broke character and spoke to the media in the first place. I wouldn't be surprised if all we heard until the official announcement is about what teams may be interested in him if the Indianapolis Colts do drop him or what Rob Lowe thinks.
