Indy community leader wants Colts fans to get refunded
From The Indianapolis Star:
The idea may appeal to Indianapolis Colts fans, but few City-County Council members are willing to support a resolution asking that folks who watched the team lose Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium get their money back.
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.
