Sometimes, It’s Tough Being A Fan!

As fans of the NFL, we often equate our community’s morale with whether or not our team won. Meaning, our emotional attachment to the NFL generates such a high and low emotional state, that ultimately can and does affect our mood.  The Colts lost Sunday to the visiting Titans and all you hear on local sports talk radio and see on local social media is the anger and disappointment fans experience. It’s justified because fans budget their money and time and expect a return on investment.  When the Colts win, you experience a glow, a feeling of happiness throughout Indianapolis.  When the Colts lose, there’s not only a lack of ROI, but a lingering emotional state that affects people well into Tuesday morning.  Colts’ fans need and deserve a better product.  That’s on the Colts’ organization.

What do we do with this?  How do we effect change?  Maybe we stop investing our time and money?  Maybe we stop buying season tickets?  Maybe we quietly demand better and when we stop participating as passionate fans, maybe our lack of enthusiasm will send a clear message to the Colts’ organization.  Thanks for reading, Killabrew.
