    This doesn't help dispel the argument that Indiana is fairweathered...

    Course its quite possible not everyone in Indiana is a Colts fan I figured Rodgers would sell more around here than Brady.
    There have always (well, I guess I should say since about 2004) been an absurd number of Pats fans in Indiana. I just figured they adopted them as their team out of disdain for the Colts. I know a lot of Bears fans who root for them as their second team, which likely explains Illinois.

    I wonder if it's because of Larry Bird. People rooted for the Celtics because of Bird, and Indianapolis didn't have a team, so they started rooting for the Patriots as well.

    Or maybe that's just a hare-brained theory.

    The Colts have been in Indiana since 1984 they weren't really noticed by most people in this state until Manning came along(Harbaugh had that one season though). I grew up in Bears country and hated the Bears, didn't like the Packers either(that's the two choices we had back then you rarely if at all heard of the Indianapolis Colts growing up). Then there are the 49ers fans who supported the team because Joe went to Notre Dame(I was one of those fans but the team was fun to watch I did grow to like Steve Young too)

    There are a lot of Steelers fans in this state too.

    On PatsFootballTalk, they're pointing out that Lynch stood for the national anthem in Seattle, and are pointing to a tape of it as if it's the Zapruder Film.

    Are we going to have to put up with this crap again in 2017?

    There might be a few genuine Pats fans in Indiana, but I think most of these people are just contrarians who never got into the Colts, so they like rooting for the Pats just to stand out and get under people's skin. There are always those types of people.

    I don't buy the Larry Bird theory. Remember, even people in Boston barely knew the Pats existed until Parcells came along. Their attendance and support was downright pathetic and embarrassing until then (Boston is an overrated market for fan support, it's easy to root for teams when they all win titles). If people in Boston barely knew of the Pats in the 80's, then I have a hard time believing people in Indiana did.

    It's mostly just a case of people enjoying being different by antagonizing the Colts fans.

    I don't think it will get nearly as bad a reaction because we already went through this with Kaepernick and other players besides him kneeled so its old hat now.

    Besides its the Raiders they have always been outsiders in the NFL.

    Doesn't matter. He is a good football player so he will be picked up. Kaepernick sucks and that is why he hasn't been signed

    Yup. This isn't hard to understand.

    (Although I think saying Kaepernick "sucks" is a little harsh.)
