The Colts released a statement that they are waiting for the facts to be gathered.
Opinion Jim Irsay’s irrational and negative comments directed at former Colts quarterback (QB) Peyton Manning seem to make sense now. Maybe Irsay was high on something when he acted like a complete ingrate and numskull by insulting one of the greatest QBs ever to play in the NFL.
If Jimmy is indeed guilty, he should be sentenced to jail and forced to enter into a drug and alcohol treatment facility.
Why do I think that Jimmy deserves jail time? I’m against drinking and driving. He could have injured or killed someone and since he’s an owner of an NFL team, he should be leading by example.
I’m not treating Jim any differently than players who break the law. These guys have enough money and resources at their disposal to find an alternative to drinking and driving.
Maybe it’s a good thing this guy was caught. Had he hired a cab or asked a friend to drive him home, his drug and alcohol addictions might have gone unnoticed. Now Irsay might be forced to face his problems head on. Only time will tell if that is indeed the case.
If the NFL disciplines players for drug related offenses and fines them for conduct detrimental to the league, why shouldn’t owners receive repercussions for their poor behavior and judgment as well.
My guess is that Irsay will get off with a slap on the wrist, especially if this is his first brush with the law. Jim didn’t injure anyone and I think it might be difficult for a judge to sentence him to jail. Probation and or being forced to enter into a drug treatment facility are more likely.
Now I can refrain from lambasting and ridiculing Jim Irsay for acting like a moron and insulting Manning. I now have a good idea why he said the things he did. I believe he was as high as a kite when he acted like an idiot.
