The support for the Indianapolis Colts shown by their fans has been unrelenting to say the least. Despite finishing in last place in 2011 with a dismal 3-13 record and starting off their 2012 season with inconsistent play and a 2-3 record, the Colts fans haven’t stopped showing up to Lucas Oil Stadium. Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk noted today that the Colts have announced that they sold out their game against the 1-5 Cleveland Browns this upcoming Sunday, which will be their 70th straight sell out.
Attendance in the NFL has been slowly declining since it peaked in 2007, but for the Colts, the fans have been showing their passion by continuing to show up after Peyton Manning’s quick exit from Indianapolis. After Manning went down, the Colts fans could have easily just stayed home and played at PartyCasino, but instead, they have shown unwavering support for the current Colts team that looks like they have a very bright future with Andrew Luck as their quarterback. For how much longer will this streak continue, we won’t know until it’s over, but if they can start winning with Luck leading the way, then this streak may never end for the Indianapolis Colts.
