Favourite current Colts: DFree, Reggie, Manning, Clark

Favourite ex Colts: Edge

Fan since: 2003

Why you decided to support the Colts: Although I actually had the Madden game for the Sega megadrive in like 1994 I didn't properly start watching the NFL until much later. Having always been big on motor racing and especially the Indy 500 when I then got Madden in 2003 offseason Indianapolis stood out for me. In addition I already was familiar with the Indianapolis Star website (Indystar.com) for the auto racing bit and so I started browsing the Colts section and the Colts forum on there as well during the build up to the season and I've been a Colts fan ever since.

So in fact I had my team before I'd even watched my first full NFL game which is a bit unusual I guess.

Favourite moment: Super Bowl win. AFC championship game win probably a close second or even tied.

Fan since: 2003/2004
Why you decided to support the Colts: Very random...but I was on a trip to Copenhagen in Denmark for a football tournament, when at the Sports Bar in the train station there was an xbox with Madden on...bear in mind I had never watched an NFL game before and didn't know any of the teams. I selected random on the xbox and ended up with the Colts. Played a few games, and enjoyed it so bought Madden when I got home and used them on Franschise mode. The first NFL game I watched was when Vanderjacht missed that field goal against the Steelers :(

My first full season of watching the Colts and we won the Superbowl...happy days! I got a Colts jersey for my 21st birthday with #93 Freeney on the back.

Favourite moment as a Colts fan: The AFC Championship comeback. Marlin's Interception :D

TheRainKings06 04.11.2009 09:28 PM

Great to find some Colts fans! I love NFL and love the Colts, but there aren;t that many NFL fans round my way...

Name: Neil
Age: 32
Location: Kent
Occupation: Civil servant
Favourite current Colts: Manning, Clark, Sanders
Favourite ex-colts: Marvin, Edge, Stokley!
Fan since: 2003
Why you decided to support the Colts: Was a big NFL fan back in the 80's and 90's and Dan Elway was my favourite player, but lost interest after Elway retired. Then got back into it againt in the early 2000's. Always liked the Colts, and thought they played the best football - and have been a die hard fan ever since

Favourite moment as a Colts fan: No exactly original, but has but be the AFC Championship comeback. Best game ever.

Also love actual football (Leeds Utd), rugby (England), cricket (Kent), but I think on balance NFL is the best spectator sport.

Fan since: 2002
Why you decided to support the Colts: Love their offense and style of play. A fab-tastic QB (Future Hall of Famer) and they have a good reputation.
Favourite moment as a Colts fan: It either has to be the AFC Championship Game against the Pats in '06 or when Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrsion broke the NFL record for most touchdowns by a quarterback-receiver tandem. And of course the Super Bowl XLI win against the Bears

Favourite Colt: Regggggie Wayne (god has blessed him with super glue hands) and ofcourse PM.
Fan since: Ive just got into NFL, started trials for Merseyside Nighthawks, and have chosen the colts over 49ers and giants. Reason....I watched Peyton and Reggie work together, and just was in awe. Plus I adopted a humpback whale as a kid called COLT haha. Plus 06 was awesome!
Looking forward to hopefully many happy years with the Colts

Favourite Colt: Peyton Manning
Fan since: 1984


It's really cool to find some Colt's fans in the U.K.! :cool:

I must admit in addition to being a Colt's fan, I'm also a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals. (Just as long as they are not playing the Colts, that is!) We didn't have an NFL team here in Indy before 1984, and Cincinnati was the closest NFL city to us. Also, both of my parents are from Cincinnati.

Favourite ex-colts: Harrison

Why you decided to support the Colts: First full game i watched was Colts v Packers and it was a shootout under the dome lights with the Colts just nicking it. a friend was a Packers fan, so seemed only right to side against him.
Favourite moment as a Colts fan: Manning lifting the Superbowl. It would be criminal if he never got a ring.

(you may be confused by my name - I am a colts fan, but also keep an eye out for the bears as i used to have some of their apparel as a kid).

Favourite ex-colts: Harrison, the edge

Fan since: 2001

Why you decided to support the Colts: I watched the nfl as a kid but didn't have a team so I drifted more towards basketball. At the time reggie miller was at the top of his game with the pacers and then I heard about a young QB at the colts who really got me enjoying football and a lifelong fan was born!

Favourite moment as a Colts fan: Cant ever beat winning the show or any time we beat the pats

Name: Brian

Age: 41

Location: Indianapolis, Indiana USA

Occupation: Automobile industry

Favorite current Colts: Peyton Manning, Dallas Clark, & Dwight Freeney

Favorite ex-Colt: Marvin Harrison

Fan since: 1984

Why you decided to support the Colts: When the Colts moved from Baltimore to my hometown in '84, I naturally had to support them. At that time, I was a Steelers fan (still am), but the hometown identity has grown on me and I support the Colts through good seasons & bad seasons. I also lived in San Diego for 6 years in the late '80s & early '90s. I enjoy the Chargers, too, but the Colts are my #1 team.

Favorite moment as a Colts fan: The "Manning Era"!

It's great to see all of the NFL fans over in the UK, especially Colts fans! Hopefully one day, the NFL will have expansion teams in the UK and have them fitted into the schedules.

Location: A Scotsman in Yorkshire

Occupation: Project Manager

Favourite current Colts: Peyton Manning, Bill Polian

Favourite ex-colts: Jim Harbaugh, Tony Dungy, Edgerrin James, Jason Belser

Fan since: 1987

Why you decided to support the Colts: First NFL show I saw was on Hallowe'en 1987 and Channel Four showed a highlight reel of Eric Dickerson, who was the best RB in the game at the time and had just been traded to the Colts. I thought: he's great, I'll follow the Colts!

Favourite moment as a Colts fan: Coming back to beat the Patriost in the AFC Championship in 2006.

OrangeKarma 19.01.2010 02:04 PM

Name: Bobby Inman

Age: 34

Location: Plymouth Devon

Occupation: HMV

Favourite current Colts: Peyton Manning, Bob Sanders, Austin Collie, Reggie Wayne

Favourite ex-colts: Marvin Harrison, Cato June, Marshall Faulk

Fan since: 1998

Why I follow the Colts: I am originally from Tennessee and (like we all did) delighted in watching Peyton through his 4 years at UT. In 98 when he was drafted was also the year the Tennessee Titans were created. For the first 4 years it was acceptable to be both a Colts and Titans fan, but when the NFL realigned and they were put in the same division an instant in-state rivalry was born. The realignment was a master stroke by the league, as it ensured Manning would come back to play in Tennessee at least once a year. (This is the fastest sell-out game for the Titans EVERY year!!)

Favorite Colts Moment: Either the AFC Championship comeback, or the multi TD comeback on Monday night football when they came back with only a couple of minutes left!!

GO COLTS!!!

Why you decided to support the Colts: Me and my mates sat down and picked a team each, they are cowboys and bills fans. I chose the colts because of peytons amazing ability to read a defence and audible at the line.

Birmingham Colts Fan
 
Location: Birmingham, UK

Any suggestions as to good places to watch the games in or near Birmingham?

Recently moved here, so this is my first season not in the US. How will I cope?

Occupation: IT Consutant

Fan since: 1984 (from the day the Mayflower moving trucks arrived in Indy). I was in grade school in Indy at that time.

Favourite current Colts: Manning, Dallas Clarke, Bob Sanders (when not hurt), Reggie Wayne and A. Gonzales.

Favourite ex-colts: Brandon Stokley and Mke Vanderjact (everyone loves a drunken kicker).

Favourite moment as a Colts fan: Oct 31, 1986 Monday Night Football game against Denver I went to. Colts wiped up with the Broncos easily piling up points while all the fans dressed in MNF announcer mask handed out for Halloween. Oh, can't forget, last year's the NE Patriot game that Belichick made a stupid call as he had no faith in his defense and the Colts came back and won (a.k.a. the day the Patriots so called dynasty died). :D

Worse moment: Thinking how much I paid for a Super Bowl ticket last year to watch the Colts lose in the 4th quarter. But then, I guess I'm over it, as I’ll go again this year in Dallas when the Colts get there again.

Go Colts!
