The Hater Nation has a lot of respect for the Colts. The Baltimore Colts. Former players like Johnny Unitas, Lenny Moore and Tom Matte wrote off the organization when it bailed on Baltimore.
Like they should have.
They didn't suck up to Robert Irsay, playing the victim to his folly, the way some members of the Los Angeles Rams did to Georgia Frontandrearie. (Not to throw anybody under the bus, but looking at you Jackie Slater and Jack Youngblood.) Colts players were as pissed as the fans when the team moved to Indianapolis. So much so that Matte is the Ravens' radio color guy and there is a statue of Unitas outside of the Raven Stadium.
The hate runs so deep that Johnny Unitas Jr. is suing the team for producing a series of license plates with the numbers of Unitas, Moore, Raymond Berry and Gino Marchetti. Moore is even thinking of joining the lawsuit.
Damn you really have to respect that hate. And some of you former LA Rams should take note. The teams belong to their cities. Except for the Raiders. Oakland can have the entire legacy of the Los Angeles Raiders.
