Why I Can't Stand Florio

ProFootballTalk is a valuable site much of the time, but the stupid speculation is just ridiculous. Here's how the site sums up the story yesterday about the Colts' radio play-by-play announcer, Bob Lamey, bashing Peyton Manning when he thought he was off the air:

Don’t be shocked if, after the season, the Colts decide to “go in a different direction.”  Manning has leverage and a long memory.  We think he won’t tolerate knowing that such comments were made by a team employee, and we believe he’ll insist that Lamey be relieved of his duties if the Colts truly want to sign Manning to a new deal.
Really? Does Peyton Manning have a history of vindictiveness against his enemies or behind-the-scenes power plays? A lot of athletes are known for that sort of thing but Peyton, after ten years in the league, never has been.

But hey- they'd better get it solved by next week! Or else I hear Jim Caldwell might be fired as coach!
