Since everyone seems to have their panties in a bunch over Colts’ head coach, Jim Caldwell’s decision to pull his starters in the 3rd quarter against the Jets, there’s definitely room for a little politician crazy talk. This edition of, “When politicians need to shut up” comes from Indianapolis City-County Council member, Beurt SerVaas.
SerVaas didn’t attend the game, but for those who did, he believes they should all get refunds. Because you know, your ticket price includes playing your starters until the end of the game. No matter what the implications may be down the road. Let’s see what SerVaas has to say on this matter.
After the Colts seemed to give away their shot at a perfect season, a longtime community leader asked the council to demand that the NFL refund the money paid for tickets. While there is some council support for the resolution, none of the 29 members so far have said they’d sponsor it. That’s a critical first step if the council is to act on the proposal.
Beurt SerVaas, a Republican who served on the council for 41 years, drafted the resolution after he watched the defeat on TV.
Like many fans, he was irate that coaches chose to bench quarterback Peyton Manning and other starters in the third quarter, resulting in a 29-15 loss that ended a 23-game regular-season winning streak.
Well how about this, SerVaas? Would you like to be irate about a loss or irate about Peyton Manning and other starters getting injured in a meaningless game. Exactly.
Just another reason why politicians need to stick to politics.
