    Bob Sanders banner to be removed from Lucas Oil Stadium

    Work to remove Sanders’ picture from the exterior southside of Lucas Oil Stadium was scheduled to begin today. It’s no small task since the banner is approximately 35-by-60 feet.


    The Colts terminated Sanders’ contract in February and the veteran safety subsequently agreed to a free-agent contract with the San Diego Chargers.


    According to chief operating officer Pete Ward, the team will replace Sanders’ picture with a huge horseshoe.


    “There are so many players to consider,’’ Ward said, “but you can’t put everyone up there.’’


    The horseshoe, he added, “is a ‘team’ symbol that we feel is appropriate.’’

    Well if that's the only criteria, they can put my picture up there since I once walked across the turf during a tour. Of course they probably want the side of the building to look GOOD for the Super Bowl. There's that...

    The banner removeal has hit a snag- there was a partially torn part, and now the removal process is listed as "day to day"

    Nothing to worry about though, I hear.

    If it was the playoffs the banner could come down...
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
