Help us decipher this tweet from Jim Irsay

irsay-colts-lombardi-trophy-07-apjpg-f03f4f1ab9e47a48

Late last night and/or early this morning, Colts owner Jim Irsay hunt-and-pecked a tweet directed at yours truly.

But, like many of Irsay’s tweets, I don’t really understand it.

It’s apparently a belated response to my fair-and-balanced assessment of his Saturday boast that the Colts had engaged in a free-agent “pillaging.”  Still, I’m not quite sure what Irsay is saying.

At least I understand the part where he breaks out a third-grade pun (in fairness, that’s the usual education level of my own puns) and calls me “Floor Sweeper” (in fairness, to a billionaire who nevertheless was able to finagle taxpayer money for his new stadium we’re all floor sweepers).

So help me decipher what exactly Jimbo is saying here.  Because I can’t make much sense of it.

    I think he was drunk tweeting

    What an immature douche.

    Spaulding Irsay?

  4. baconandvodka says: Apr 2, 2013 11:20 AM

    I think he is saying that he is taking you to NFL school….and that the mesculin is starting to kick into high gear.

  5. acmepackers says: Apr 2, 2013 11:20 AM

    I wouldn’t waste any time on this, Florio. Irsay’s become a cartoon. He’s just a dog (billionaire dog at that) that likes to bark.

    haha wow

    Happened in the overnight… Drugs were talking.

  8. rc33 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:21 AM

    It’s hard to build up a ton of regard for a guy who’s exactly as “self-made” as Paris Hilton.

  9. gbpbacker84 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:21 AM

    Sounds to me like he’s getting ready to get Luck some weapons on offense. His grammar is all over the place and makes very little sense, but he refers to a WR and 160 mil, if he spreads it around and gets creative, the Colts might be on to something

  10. juke1220 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:22 AM

    Oh man… what a dbag…

  11. steviemo says: Apr 2, 2013 11:22 AM

  12. dbones750 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:23 AM

    He seems like a bud light guy.

  13. kluuuuuuuuug says: Apr 2, 2013 11:23 AM

    Wait… DHB is going to catch the ball?

  14. whatnojets says: Apr 2, 2013 11:24 AM

    He saying that you are a “janitor’ compared to him and that you should take beginner classes in valuating talent

    No idea what he’s talking about $160 mil but I assume that he was already “lit up” with booze

  15. steelbydesign says: Apr 2, 2013 11:24 AM

    Ewww! Cat fight!

  16. Aaron Kempf says: Apr 2, 2013 11:25 AM

    he’s probably talking about the Doug Baldwin trade.

  17. jimmedk says: Apr 2, 2013 11:25 AM

    He is mad that you don’t agree that he pillaged the FA market, and seems to believe that the amount of money spent backs his claim (even if it wasn’t all well spent).
    Apparently he will be right (point fingers and tweet “I told you so”) that he did pillage the FA market once a new wide receiver catches a ball from Luck.

  20. jamaltimore says: Apr 2, 2013 11:26 AM

    Drunk like his old man! Do you really need to dig deeper than that! In the end Baltimore really won by having this idiot family out of town and now having the BEST OWNER IN FOOTBALL Stevie B running things in Charm City!

  21. berniemadoffsides says: Apr 2, 2013 11:27 AM

    He’s drunk

  22. randyschwimmer7 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:27 AM

    You got me. I can’t understand any of it. The childish dish at the beginning is the only part of that tweet that makes half a sense. I also noticed that he didn’t have the balls to mention you with your handle either….

  23. almighty1 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:28 AM

    All I can ever think of when hear about Irsay is that he gave 16 MIL to Erik Walden! Still dumbfounded. I think he must’ve be chumming around with Matt Millen one night getting drunk and discussed how awesome he was.

  24. 4superbowls says: Apr 2, 2013 11:28 AM

    You’re all wrong. He’s saying:

    “Hey Florio, why do you keep deleting my comments?”

  25. jessethegreat says: Apr 2, 2013 11:28 AM

    Just ignore him Florio, he’s just boasting on being able to spend $160 million on a bunch of underachieving chumps.

  26. heronemus13 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:28 AM

    If the receiver he is talking about is DHB, he will see him drop, disappoint, and disappear a lot more than he sees him catch the football from the QB. They should call him Darius Heyward-Butterfingers

  27. thejuddstir says: Apr 2, 2013 11:29 AM

    Looks very similar to a George W. Bush thought, or not.

    His thumbs should be penalized.

    I’m a little rusty, but I think it’s Spoiled Brat for “I’m an out of touch D-Bag” or Out of Touch D-Bag for “I’m a spoiled brat.”

  30. 69finfan says: Apr 2, 2013 11:30 AM

    Mike, I wouldn’t loose any sleep over anything JI says/tweets/rants. I don’t think he even knows what he says half the time.

  31. wethog66 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:31 AM

    The picture you used on this post says it all. The guy is a tool. No further explanation needed.

  32. daysend564 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:31 AM

    He was pretty enamored last year with his Vontae Davis trade. Could be anybody, or NOBODY!

  33. nomoreseasontix says: Apr 2, 2013 11:31 AM

    Jimmy boy…. Put down the scotch and step away…
    In the old days, drunk billionaires didn’t have smart phones to sound stupid with.
    They had to sound stupid in private.

  34. circuscivics says: Apr 2, 2013 11:33 AM

    I think he was referring to your remarks about their free agent signings with his remarks about “160 mil.” I think he took offense when you said this was hardly pillaging. The wide receiver comment was probably about the fact that you said he did not land the free agent receiver he was alluding to in his previous tweets.

  35. ken0west says: Apr 2, 2013 11:37 AM

    I think he is saying that he is much better at inheriting football teams than you.

  36. rickyspanish24 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:37 AM

    I’m rather certain he just blamed Obama for any shortcomings in the Colts’ upcoming season.

  37. jvillenole says: Apr 2, 2013 11:38 AM

    You can just look at the guy and tell he is a lush. Look at his nose. It is always more bloodshot than his eyes. Nothing like living of of daddy’s money..

  38. bullcharger says: Apr 2, 2013 11:38 AM

    Irsay is using whiskey logic. You can only understand it if you are also drunk.

  39. pynflfan says: Apr 2, 2013 11:39 AM

    he’s retarded. there’s no way around it

  40. ncm42 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:40 AM

    Translation: “I need attention.”

  41. seanpbeck says: Apr 2, 2013 11:42 AM

    Hilarious that he’s calling a self-made attorney and website millionaire a “floor sweeper.” We can’t all inherit billion dollar businesses whose values were established not by anything we did, but by decades of work by other people in the league and in the TV industry. Did your family do anything but screw Baltimore?

  42. nineroutsider says: Apr 2, 2013 11:43 AM

    You need help deciphering that? Just blast him if you want to blast him (he deserves it), but no need to act like you don’t know what he’s trying to do and how douchy he looks doing it. Go ahead…put him on blast, no need to worry about the wrath of the league…the other owners want you to.

  43. johnelwayishorsefaced says: Apr 2, 2013 11:43 AM

    This guy is a complete moron. Get off the drugs and alcohol jackass.

  44. andyreidsskinnyjeans says: Apr 2, 2013 11:44 AM

    This man is very difficult to relate to. He inherited a billion dollar asset and yet drinks his face off and talks like a drunk fan in the 700 level while talking down to everyone. Florio keep pressing on this and let’s see if richie rich puts down his drink for his next tweet if/when the mainstream media pick it up.

  45. fumblenuts says: Apr 2, 2013 11:44 AM

    Sounds like he discovered “bath salts.”

  46. nebster21 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:46 AM

    Sounds like he is going after another WR and that he is happy to have the extra million in cap space provided by the Redskins and the Cowboys.

  49. bowsi says: Apr 2, 2013 11:47 AM

    He may be stupid, but he suckered 31 other owners when he tanked the non-Manning season to acquire Luck in last years’ draft.

  50. coltzfan166 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:50 AM

    He’s upset that you pointed out that he was bragging about the acquisition of a receiver that never happened. When he says “maybe 160 mil. is chump change 2U” he’s saying that landing big-time receivers isn’t as easy as you think and they’re expensive. Then he goes on to say that DHB will do fine too as long as he catches the ball.

  51. jwcarlson says: Apr 2, 2013 11:52 AM

  55. paulsmith107 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:54 AM

    Thank god for Jim. He takes all the eyes off of the owner of my favorite team. I’m just waiting for Jerry to do something big and stupid to take the shine off of jimmy lol

  56. realtalktruthhurts says: Apr 2, 2013 11:54 AM

    Jim, I hope you read this:

    your free agent class is a complete joke, and you are a joke too..Landry has the brain and intelligence of a 5 year old, and he will soon break down b/c of an overload of steriods and GH…Goster Cherilus?? LOL..he is HORR, only played decent during a contract year, and is a matt millen draft pick..DHB, another joke, cant catch, wasnt even an All-ACC pick, 1st or 2nd team, in college and was drafted by Al Davis..list goes on and on..

    Jim, I hope you die on Xmas day, under the tree, and your grandchildren find you and ask, “what happened to grandpa”

    Mike isnt this the same guy whose family and himself snuck his NFL franchise out the back door in the middle of the night. so who cares what he thinks his credibility is shot as far as im concerned. except for the fact i am so happy he ripped the team from balimore. dislike pigeons so much i hope they leave crab cake city too. but anyway they “athletes owners front office agents” the whole shabang they are against your regular journalist or reporters. there is no respect there so why care what some guitar toten hippy stoner owner thinks. i wouldnt. nevertheless get him Mike get him

  60. wtfchiefs says: Apr 2, 2013 11:58 AM

    Drunken tweet by a drunken twit…

  61. cbraithwaite says: Apr 2, 2013 11:58 AM

    I get the Colts free agent signings to roughly $114m of total contracts, so I’m not sure what the $160m refers to. The total amount the Colts have committed to spend this year from salaries and bonuses?

  62. calicowboysfan86 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:59 AM

    It’s ugly when an owner starts doing more than is needed and becomes the face of the franchise isn’t it?! Sigh….

  63. nfloracle says: Apr 2, 2013 11:59 AM

    The guys who broke the Enigma Code in World War II would have a tough time figuring out what the hell Irsay was tweeting about you, Florio.

    I have to agree with the guys above who said it was obviously a drug and alcohol tweet coming from a billionaire who never learned the rules of capitalization or grammar.

  64. randolph32 says: Apr 2, 2013 11:59 AM

    There’s the reason why I ‘unfollowed’ him….

  65. bigtunna says: Apr 2, 2013 11:59 AM

    He’s saying you dont know what youre talking about. And for once hes absolutely right

  66. mrlaloosh says: Apr 2, 2013 12:00 PM

    It’s nice to see that someone is ready to take the place of the elderly Bud Adams. The new court jester of the Billionaire Boys club. Florio, he’ll keep getting you page views. That’s the point anyway, isn’t it?

  67. juiceboxsupply says: Apr 2, 2013 12:02 PM

    You got burned big time Floor Sweeper. Knowing there are people out there with that much money and that level of intelligence/maturity is maddening

  68. lightcleric says: Apr 2, 2013 12:04 PM

    It’s a subconcious cry for help with his Twitter addiction.

  69. tdk24 says: Apr 2, 2013 12:07 PM

    don’t know what is more disturbing. His butchering of the english language or that photo.

  70. rajbais says: Apr 2, 2013 12:11 PM

    I’m surprised that he didn’t tweet Florio about his new WR
    Barrius Deyward-Hey.

  71. majormeatcurtains says: Apr 2, 2013 12:12 PM

    Irsay, it says right on the bottle NOT to mix alcohol with your Viagra. It lowers the blood pressure to your brain dude and you end up tweeting while experiencing a mental brownout.

  72. jcjaguar says: Apr 2, 2013 12:12 PM

    What have here is a db on db crime…

  73. spideysdog says: Apr 2, 2013 12:13 PM

    I believe he is insinuating that he will pay you 160 million to teach his new fumble handed wr how to do his next job when he burns all the money jimmy is paying him and blows out of the league in 5 years.

    the only respectable response my janitorial friend, is to quote the best corner in football:

    “hey jimmy, I’m better at life than you”

  74. creeder1964 says: Apr 2, 2013 12:13 PM

    Oh snap! Seriously, Irsay is like Tommy Boy, only the NFL is so strong financially you have to be practically comatose to lose money. Or Art Modell. At least he spelled your name right. And in big capital letters like in his Big Chief Tablet.

  75. marima07 says: Apr 2, 2013 12:15 PM

    Red, red whine…

  76. jetrainer says: Apr 2, 2013 12:16 PM

    I think he was in essence saying his hard dollar payroll is 160 mil (his cap number is less) and he was referring to his prize gem (Luck) executing a brilliant passing game. An offense he built far quicker than anyone would have guessed. He may have tipped a few, but even drunk he isn’t stupid. I’m not a Colts fan and have never been one, but after he built the team he built after dumping Peyton and his front office team, I have to take my hat off to him. He knows how to own and manage an NFL team, many owners would benefit from a course or two from him. Including my team’s owner Steve Ross (not stupid either).

  77. blacknole08 says: Apr 2, 2013 12:16 PM

    Ha! That’s the best he’s got?

    Don’t sweat this. When they tell lies about you, Mike, that means you made it.

    Upon reading the post I immediately thought of the Drunk or Stoned skit on the drive-time radio program (DJ recounts humorous case from police files and caller has to guess if the perpetrator was drunk or stoned). I see by the comments I wasn’t the only one. A quick review has the current count at 11 drunk, 4 stoned, 1 both, and 1 retarded. Should probably make this a standard poll for any Irsay tweet. Oh, put me down for drunk.

  83. thegrey7 says: Apr 2, 2013 12:17 PM

    I hope everyone calls Florio “Floor Sweeper” from now on.

  84. luckyarmpit says: Apr 2, 2013 12:18 PM

    Irsay is the perfect example of why famous people need to stay away from social media platforms such as Twitter.

  85. camdenyard says: Apr 2, 2013 12:18 PM

    He is a moron like his father.

  86. changsteinelgamal says: Apr 2, 2013 12:19 PM

    Dear Florio – it is a distinguished name, I admit, but one whose cachet you are unworthy of. I dub thee “floor sweeper” instead. You, being a man of wealth and taste, clearly have no appreciation of how far 160 million US dollars can take one of the upper middle class plebeians like myself.
    On a related note, in the game of American Football, it is the appointed task of a Wide Receiver to catch passes, which are thrown by the Quarterback. Any other activities are necessarily ancillary to his primary duties. Take this pamphlet, it is all explained in full, with small words and brightly colored photos.

    ps: irsays late night tweets of high profile fa acquisitions are typically as real as Mantei’s girlfriends.

    Florio,

    I couldn’t make any sense of it either. On a hunch, I had it translated to German, then translated it back to English and this is what I got:

    “Bodenkehrer, perhaps 160 painted is sees. zombie change that a receiver catches new wider the soccer of the beginner courses of the QB, there”

    So you see, it all becomes clear now. Take it easy, Bodenkehrer.

  113. forty9asty says: Apr 2, 2013 2:15 PM

    I kinda like that he is so “open” to using Twitter and kinda leaks information. Personality and presence from an NFL owner is kinda refreshing from most of the other old-money stale owners.

    That being said, being a wealthy older man and taking personal shots at a “media source” for critiquing his teams’ acquisitions and use of the word pillaging is rather childish. I guess the “win” goes to you Florio, for instead of responding to him directly, you open it up to all of us to bash him. Well played sir…

    Irsay is flat out a dumb guy and he’s shown his low level of intelligence for years. Remember, this guy inherited the team from his dad so it isn’t like he is a self-made guy and thus one would assume he has a higher level of intelligence.

    It was an auto-correct typo from his iPhone. He meant he was 160 milliliters into his current bottle of booze.

    Don’t drink and tweet.

  117. si1m says: Apr 2, 2013 2:52 PM

    Yeah Irsay really pillaged the market for Erik Walden and DHB. Only had to fight off several contenders from the Canadian Football League for their services

    $160 million is “chump change” to FLORIO?

    Hardly. Let’s remember, this is a guy who has his $100,000 a year PR guy issue a self-congratulating press release every time he gives $10,000 to some cause to grab a headline.

    That’s the equivalent of $1.75 to you and me.

    Meanwhile, he wouldn’t THINK of selling off is $2.75 million original manuscript of “On the Road” and giving that to charity.

    Must be all those roids he took when he was trying to pretend he was tough. Just like his father and “Jackass”.

  120. trevor123698 says: Apr 2, 2013 3:28 PM

    I take pride in the fact that he blocked a couple of my fake twitters while I was trying to educate him on how DEAD ATHLETES DON’T LIE.

  121. thejimthorpejamsession says: Apr 2, 2013 3:49 PM

    OK,

    Seems simple enough.

    The “floor sweeper” crack was an obvious weak pun on your last name, Florio, as you rightly surmised.

    The reference to chump change is clearly a statement to counter your assertion that their off-season spending has been frugal. He feels he’s spent quite a bit.

    And then the final bit about there being a wide receiver relates to your criticism of that not having been addressed in the off-season.

    Basically, he’s saying that you are to be belittled because he’s spent a lot where you said he had not, got a wide receiver though your statement assumed that wasn’t addressed or planned by him, and that you have a lot to learn about being a GM that he can teach you.

    Perhaps that’s a worthy investment. Being frugal, his classes probably come at a reasonable price!

    Every fantasy league has a guy like that. Alcohol is the common denominator.

    Just not sure how this is football news. When did PFT become TMZ?

    Everyone is bad mouthing Irsay, which I understand. However, me being a Colts fan, I just have to say I kind of like it. He keeps the fan base notified of what he and the front office are trying to do. Other teams may find it annoying and dumb, but we have gotten some great acquisitions this offseason. Landry, DHB, Cherilus, and Toler are fantastic players. As for us tanking the 2011 season to get luck….I am glad he did, it’s better than the QB’s available this draft, or in most drafts for that reason. Say what you want about him being a drunk traitor and acquiring a fortune from his family, but he knows how to put the players in place to win.

  125. kmack831 says: Apr 2, 2013 4:26 PM

    After your done cleaning his toilet, and you learn the beginners course… he wants to take you out for the main course and maybe dinner and cuddle sext with you! FLOORIO(JI should have used that! #FLOORIO (Trademark pending!)

    Obivous he has a crush on you, and loves to text with you like a 13 year old girl. He is teasing you and calling you out cuz he is really in love with you!

    So be honored that JI cares enough to DRUNK Tweet about U!!

    1) I’m having a stroke. Please call 911.
    2) I have a twitter account, and my PR team is asleep.
    3) Please allow me to demonstrate the responsible use of twitter for my less sophisticated pro athletes
    4) Tim Tebow, Manti Te’o’s girlfriend, Jets, Farve and other words that will get me retweeted.
    5) I own an NFL team, so whatever I say.

  128. 75rockrasin says: Apr 2, 2013 5:39 PM

    It’s been a number of years since I had to translate Irsayese.
    But I think he’s saying-
    It’s my goshdanged team (hic) Not your goshdanged team, (hic) If I say we’re pillaging (burp) then we’re pilliaging (hicburp) Get Elsway inshere. He’ll telsya I’m taking after mah daddy (hic) and pillaging like a good Irshay (burp). Getsh me another Boursshbon there Hinton.

  129. ppdoc13 says: Apr 2, 2013 6:09 PM

    Just a chip off the old block. Either drunk, stoned, or drugged before dinner. He is an utter embarrassment to the NFL

  130. stairwayto7 says: Apr 2, 2013 6:28 PM

    He is comparing your job to a janitor, spend 160 mill on new wr crew who will be the best in NFL. don’t agree however that is his thinking.

  131. tsimpson50 says: Apr 2, 2013 7:15 PM

    Did you notice the amount of single “thumbs-down”. I bet that’s Irsay doing that. What a tool!!

  132. andylucksneck says: Apr 2, 2013 8:44 PM

    Notice Jim, you are only holding one trophy. Any decent owner would have had enough pieces around a QB like Manning to win at least 2. I say you (in this order) get rid of the mullet (1992 called and they said they want it back), get off the drugs (whatever they may be prescription or not), get off the booze, STOP TWEETING. You make the entire fan base look like fools when you tweet and then have a picture like that of yourself sitting in your daddy’s chair pretending to ????make out with the Lombardi???? What a shameful picture. You are definitely the most disturbed person in Indiana.

  133. rukkus1 says: Apr 2, 2013 8:54 PM

    Since irsay is so rich AND dumb, maybe he could pay a bunch of other drunk bums to come to the site and give him some more thumb downs on the comments

  134. cantarguefacts says: Apr 2, 2013 8:55 PM

    Well, dammit.

    I have been the biggest supporter of Irsay on this site and I think with good reason but…damn.

    I know the man is sober but even I doubted that after this recent hissy fit.

    Jim, I love you for doing great things for my Colts but please shut up until after the draft.

  135. AP's Stomach Punch says: Apr 3, 2013 7:43 AM

    Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.

  136. nananatman says: Apr 3, 2013 9:55 AM

    I choose not to look down on people who aren’t on coke, crack, meth, steroids, HGH, and the only jobs I look down on are prostitutes and drug dealers/gangsta rappers so I wouldn’t comment on the “floor sweeper” part. Clearly Irsay is drunk and obviously he thinks Florio is a bad wide receiver and he is right, you are probably not currently a very good option inside or outside.
