Irsay on trade talk: “the sh*t is HOT”

Jim Irsay AP

Maybe Colts owner Jim Irsay simply wants to upstage the preseason games.

Roughly 24 hours after Irsay drew plenty of attention by tweeting repeatedly about a mystery trade during Thursday night’s exhibition games, Irsay is at it again during Friday night’s phony contests.

Here’s the latest:  “I can bring u NFL Manos to the edge of the water,but I can’t throw you n,that’s called tampering..but FOE REEL…the sh*t is HOT,STAY TUNED!”

It’s accurate that Irsay can’t disclose the target of his team’s affections without running afoul of the league’s tampering rules, a rare exercise of discretion in a somewhat indiscreet Twitter account.

Irsay said Thursday that the Colts would be giving up a high draft pick for a “serious vet/starter” and that the owner had his check book ready, which implies that the vet/starter wants a new contract.

If we had to guess, we’d say that the Colts are talking to the Steelers about a trade for receiver Mike Wallace.

We otherwise will continue to stay tuned, especially since Irsay’s latest contest is based on whether or not a trade is finalized by Monday.  Abby’s dart board!

    Does any other owner act this retarded, er, “mentally challenged”????

  2. nyyjetsknicks says: Aug 24, 2012 8:20 PM

    Is Irsay an old multimillionaire or a 16 year old girl?

  3. mataug says: Aug 24, 2012 8:21 PM

    I wonder how does his family understand what he says

    It will be interesting to see if the Brown or Eagles are involved. Reason – Ryan Grigson and Tom Heckart are products of the Eagles Front Office and Andy Reid.

    Does the NFL drug testing policy include owners?

    This buffoon is the turd that just won’t flush. He is the Chad Johnson of owners. Constantly seeking attention from anyone and everyone. Born on third base and thinks he hit a triple.

  9. AlanSaysYo says: Aug 24, 2012 8:25 PM

    Would we even be able to tell if his Twitter account had been hacked?

    I suppose a complete sentence might raise eyebrows.

    I bet the blockbuster trade could involve a DB named Revis… just saying.

    i hope it’s for real too. i can’t believe they are bringing peyton manning back.

    Patriots fan here maybe Wes welker is a possibilty hate to say it

  22. skoobyfl says: Aug 24, 2012 8:34 PM

    I be panicking as well if I had spent a fortune a team that drafted 1st.

  23. iamthorny says: Aug 24, 2012 8:34 PM

    The joke’s on Irsay…the Seahawks were going to cut T.O.

  24. drop703 says: Aug 24, 2012 8:35 PM

    It’s bad when a owner uses twitter more than his players…

  25. hoopjack says: Aug 24, 2012 8:36 PM

    My bets on Welker not Wallace.
    Love the born on 3rd base thought he hit a triple comment.
    You couldn’t explain Irsay any better then that.

  26. waraggie says: Aug 24, 2012 8:38 PM

    I love all the Irsay bashing…the man owns an NFL football team and you own Madden 2009….One day that created player with your name but looks absolutely nothing like you will be somebody…until then PFT….

  27. hevymedicine says: Aug 24, 2012 8:39 PM

    it’s not Wallace!

  28. jc327 says: Aug 24, 2012 8:40 PM

    I bet Irsay will be glad when the “ganksta” that stole his phone gives it back. It’s been a while now…

  29. gammynomnom says: Aug 24, 2012 8:41 PM

    I’m not near as embarrassed for Jerry Jones after reading this.

  30. crackills says: Aug 24, 2012 8:45 PM

    Stay classy irsay

  31. andrewlucksbeard says: Aug 24, 2012 8:46 PM

    Rumor coming out of Indy is the trade is for Vontae Davis…no word on what round pick they would be giving up. Guess Irsay is a huge fan of Hard Knocks.

  32. cowboyscountry says: Aug 24, 2012 8:48 PM

    I love this guy!

  33. myopiccoltsfan says: Aug 24, 2012 8:48 PM

    Irsay is awesome. keeps are ticket prices NFL low with no contracts or licensing agreement and has not raised them in 3 years. Willing to pay his players and always trying to make a winner.

  34. wallacejay says: Aug 24, 2012 8:48 PM

    What the hell is wrong with this guy? Does he not realize that he’s an owner, and not a player? The employers shouldn’t act as ignorant and classless as the employees.

  35. bisonbreath123 says: Aug 24, 2012 8:53 PM

    Good lord, what an embarrassment this guy is.
    It seems hes just like his daddy with either a drinking or substance problem. Colts fans must cringe every time the guy speaks or tweets.

    Admins…. Can we start a PFT readers Poll?

    So what is worse?

    Al Davis and his overhead projector (RIP)
    Bud Adams and his use of sign language
    or
    Jimmy Irsay and his Twitter account?

    I have yet to here any talk about Wallace and the Colts in Pittsburgh.

  40. atwatercrushesokoye says: Aug 24, 2012 9:12 PM

    I just wish Rob Lowe would break this story already.

  41. dietrich43 says: Aug 24, 2012 9:13 PM

    Irsay must think his sh*t don’t stink.

  42. sdakota says: Aug 24, 2012 9:17 PM

    my guess, C williams cb Ravens( Pagano ex Raven d coordinator)

  43. tdk24 says: Aug 24, 2012 9:21 PM

    He gives vikes 2 first rounders for AP!

  44. electstat says: Aug 24, 2012 9:25 PM

    Cromartie and Greene to Jags for MJD then Colts give first round pick to Jags for Cromartie and Greene

  45. andrewproughcfe says: Aug 24, 2012 9:26 PM

    Indy fans better hope he’s not trying to trade for Wallace. The Rooneys and Colbert would take a buffoon like that to the cleaner’s.

  46. blindmansaidwhat says: Aug 24, 2012 9:30 PM

    This just in Irsay has been referring to his FANTASY FOOTBALL team this entire time…

    —————–

    Obviously you didn’t get the, “Born on third base and thought he hit a triple analogy”.

    So far his only discernible talent seem to be his ability to build the worst team in the NFL when once in a generation QBs are available with the first pick.

  48. m1000be says: Aug 24, 2012 9:36 PM

    As a diehard Colt’s fan, I say this with as loud and clear as possible.

    SHUT UP AND QUIT TWEETING!

  50. thenewenglandpatriots12 says: Aug 24, 2012 9:39 PM

    He said “Foe REEL” foe as in jacksonville jaguars… Anyone know a disgruntled runningback that they might have available?

  51. arlingtonsynn says: Aug 24, 2012 9:44 PM

    Correct me if I am wrong…. but didn’t Welker sign his franchise tag?

    If so, doesn’t that mean he specifically can’t be traded?

    Even if he was ‘allowed’ to be traded…. can the Colts actually trade for him given they do not have enough cap room to absorb him and his franchise tag (roughly 10 million)?

    For Bowe, same issue.

    On the other hand…. Mike Wallace is what… roughly 3 million this year? He can get his future contract later on as the Colts are gaining a TON of cap space after this season (Freeney, Clark, Manning deals coming totally off).

    Seriously, how good do the Kraft and Mara families look when you read this crap?

    This guy rules… who wants the typical boring business man owner…. This dude is basically how my dude would be if the “Owner” feature were still in madden.

    Settle down people. You guys cry like 12 year olds cause an owner Tweets.

    You forgot Rooney and Mara family was preeminent until he went after his competitors for not practicing collusion. He ruined his family legacy of greatness then.

    With most owners being random elderly windbags who quietly sit in their Ivory Tower… I find it interesting to have a “colorful” owner who talks and acts like one of the players sometimes.

    While it is big business… IT’S JUST A GAME after all. Irsay is a very entertaining owner to follow. Call him names or a “16 year old girl” or whatever you want, but owners like Irsay and Cuban are very unique in pro sports.

  58. jimmygrahamchrisivory says: Aug 24, 2012 10:04 PM

    It’s either Welker, Wallace, or MJD. No way Irsay is hyping this up over Cary Williams and Mike Jenkins, two average CB’s.

  59. cardmagnet says: Aug 24, 2012 10:05 PM

    I think his account may have been hacked by a mentally challenged rapper. Nicki Minaj, did you hack Irsay’s account?

  60. ppie12 says: Aug 24, 2012 10:08 PM

    It OBV cannot be Wallace because Irsay already said that the deal could happen this weekend, and Pittsburgh already said that Wallace won’t be signing until Sun night or Monday

  61. lilrob10201 says: Aug 24, 2012 10:34 PM

    I swear they need to ban people from Twitter.

  62. sjsuraider says: Aug 24, 2012 10:58 PM

    I think all those years of being a junkie really messed up his head

  63. preventoffense says: Aug 24, 2012 11:01 PM

    Gotta laugh at the comparisons of Irsay to a teen girl because of his tweets. You sound like 14 year old girls who are jealous of another girls curly locks.

  64. csilojohnson says: Aug 24, 2012 11:05 PM

    Just because irsay owns a football team, and I dont own madden (sucks) doesnt make him any less of a dbag

  65. agc99 says: Aug 24, 2012 11:15 PM

    I think he’s worse than Rex Ryan.

  66. tylerncom says: Aug 24, 2012 11:23 PM

    As a fantastic writer, you, I would expect you to take a closer look at the wording of Irsay’s message. FOE REEL. FOE. >>>>In my opinion FOE would mean rival. Like a close rival, such as the Jaguars. And they have only one disgruntled player with a contract issue, MJD.

  67. murphy6377 says: Aug 24, 2012 11:29 PM

    I hope it is Wallace! First Plex, then Santionio. When will the stupid receivers learn. Well, maybe it is the team trading for them??? The players got their Super Bowl ring with the Steelers now I will go get paid by somebody else. Look how the teams have done with them once they have joined them. Don’t forget Randal El went to Washington for big money to.

  68. murphy6377 says: Aug 24, 2012 11:34 PM

    Please take Wallace!!

  70. ppdoc13 says: Aug 25, 2012 4:15 AM

    Ironclad lock of the year – irsay is back in rehab within two years

  71. gpclaw says: Aug 25, 2012 11:47 AM

    I know that plenty of sources have said that Wallace isn’t the guy that the Colts are after, but he would make sense. Wallace wouldn’t be the teams number one WR, because that role already belongs to Reggie Wayne. From his years in Baltimore, Chuck Pogano knows what Wallace is capable of, and so does Bruce Ariens, which is why Irsay may be willing to give up a higher pick for Wallace.
