    Pro Football Writers file complaint on Colts
    NFL.com wire reports

    INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 25, 2007) -- Pro Football Writers Association president Dave Elfin filed a complaint with the NFL regarding the Colts' arrival time for the Super Bowl.

    The team's plane is not expected to land in South Florida until Monday at 7:30 p.m. Players and coach Tony Dungy are expected to be available an hour later.

    The Chicago Bears are following the general trend of arriving Sunday evening.

    Colts spokesman Craig Kelley said the team had no comment, and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Indianapolis was working within the league's guidelines.

    "The teams are required to be in the Super Bowl city by the end of the day Monday," Aiello said. "It's the team's option whether to arrive Sunday. Obviously, the Bears opted to do something different than the Colts. But it's no issue as far as we're concerned."

    : I guess the Writers wanted everyone to arrive at the same time.
    I'm actually glad the Colts are arriving as late as possible. The less distractions the better..

    Why Not Us ?

    Nice. It's as if the writers think they're important.

    Yeah and keep in mind the Colts are not staying in Miami, their hotels are in Ft. Lauderdale.

    They're trying to stay away from the madness. The Bears, on the other hand I think are staying in some Miami hotels.

    I heard this reported on WTHR this evening.

    I'm glad the Colts are doing this.

    I imagine Dungy will explain this post-SB but it sounds like the Colts are trying to keep the routine as close to normal for a road game.

    They ran normal practice this week, as if they were playing Sunday. They're staying in Ft Lauderdale - I expect they have a Miami hotel reserved and they'll arrive there Saturday, just like for a normal road game in Miami.

    Not sure if it's possible to have anything approaching a normal routine for the Super Bowl but it's good idea.

    No, its as if the writers think they are the story. Standard for modern journalism. Used to be you covered the story, now you create it instead.
