Thursday, November 16th, 2017

The Indianapolis Colts have been fighting their way past problems all season.

VP Pence’s Colts game walkout cost police $14,000

Wednesday, November 15th, 2017

When Vice President Mike Pence staged a preplanned walkout during a Week 5 Colts-49ers game, he not only made a political statement, he cost a local police department $14,000, according to new records. To recap: Pence attended the Oct. 8 game in the very heart of the protest fire, when players across the league were kneeling during the national anthem to protest social inequality. Pence’s walkout was a definitive stand against the protesters, but there was plenty of evidence to suggest that this wasn’t an in-the-moment statement of political courage, but rather a pre-planned stunt designed to further inflame an anti-protest populist base.

NFL: More concussion self-reporting; Brissett handled OK

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The NFL's chief medical officer says more than a third of concussion evaluations so far this season are a result of players indicating they have symptoms, a much higher percentage than last season. Allen Sills said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday that "about 37 percent" of the 379 concussion evaluations during the preseason and regular season have been "initiated by a self-report." Sills said it was about 20 to 22 percent a year ago. Sills also said the rules for checking for a concussion were followed properly for Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett on Sunday, when he was allowed to return to a game after a hit to the head.

Mike Pence NFL Game Walkout Was Unethical and Cost Local Police $14,000, Watchdog Says

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Pence walked out of the October 8 game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers after some of the California players kneeled during the performance of the national anthem. The watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, filed a request with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department for the cost of Pence’s high-security visit. An earlier CNN estimate pegged the Air Force Two flight costs of the Pence trip that included the Colts–49ers game, which took the vice president from Las Vegas to Indianapolis to Los Angeles, at about $242,500.
