    All of the local stations are carrying it too. Stampedeblue also said it's going to be on CNN.

    That was really surreal. They keep saying it's not about the money, its the "circumstances".
    Bah! What does that even mean??

    Peyton is a class act. I would be saying how the Colts will rue this day and get ready to get stomped when I come back to town in another uniform.

    Yeah, Manning says it's not about the money while Irsay keeps talking about the salary cap.

    I do wish we could find out what exactly was offered/discussed.

    Manning's speech was very emotional. This is the saddest thing I've ever watched as a sports fan.

    Nope, shouldn't happen that way at all. Irsay really did bend over backwards for Peyton and anything he wanted (Peyton) got, until today.

    Circumstances means the Colts cannot bring in the kind of players Payton needs to win with and PM wants to win.

    It's just the way the stars aligned.

    Who didn't shed a few tears during that press conference? We all knew it was coming, but it's still hard to listen to the final reality of it all.

    It's not about the money in terms of how much Irsay would gladly put on a check to Peyton Manning; he knows he's worth every penny. That is independent of the salary cap, the rebuild, etc.

    Yep, it was about not having any faith in the team besides Peyton.

    It's better off for him to go somewhere where a team is competing right now instead of rebuilding.

    Even though I believe he could have brought Indy to the playoffs, I am not sure how far we could actually go.

    Terrible day.

    We were watching it at the office here and a few of my co-workers were getting all teary eyed. Very surreal indeed.

    I freely admit that I had tears in my eyes and on my cheeks. But then, I'm an old softie.

    You learned all you need to know about what kind of a person Peyton Manning is when he got choked up talking about the equipment guys. The phrase "class act" gets thrown around so much these days, but Peyton is the absolute embodiment of class act.

    "It's been a privilege to be the quarterback of the City of Indianapolis".

    It's been a hell of a ride. Nobody wanted it to end like this, but in a way its fitting. In many ways, the absence of Peyton Manning this year has allowed us to truly appreciate how much he meant. We return the same roster - minus #18 - and win 2 games. We host a Superbowl in a building that would not be standing had it not been for the man playing quarterback the past 14 years. We've had a year to prepare ourselves for this inevitable end as best we could, and in the process, learning to appreciate the significance of it all along the way.
