Colts season ticket holders are promised NFL games at Lucas Oil Stadium with the Colts hosting the visiting teams. That is it. There is no guarantee about who will be on the team or how the team will perform. I get that fans are upset about Andrew Luck retiring, because it takes the Colts from the playoff picture to an immediate long term rebuilding project. Since the arrival of Peyton Manning in 1999, the Colts have largely been anywhere from an elite team to at least a good one. Only 2001 (the year of the Jim Mora playoffs rant), 2011 (Peyton missed the season due to injury), and 2017 (Luck missed the season due to injury) count as truly awful seasons for the team. Those fans are about to take a trip back to the 1980s and 1990s when the Colts were terrible and are reacting irrationally in response.
