Jim Irsay’s Twitter account spices up the slow times

At this juncture of the calendar, the slow news days often are made more lively when a player does something he shouldn’t have done, often resulting in temporary incarceration or longer. This year, a Twitter misadventure from Colts owner Jim Irsay has helped fill the vacuum.

Overnight, Irsay’s account posted a photo of a naked woman from the neck down. Via Deadspin, it was an image from elsewhere on the Internet. According to the New York Daily News, the tweet was deleted 12 minutes after it was posted.

Earlier in the month, Irsay tweeted a warning that he’d been hacked. Presumably, he was hacked again, since per the Daily News the next tweet on the account was directed to multiple Indianapolis news stations and reporters, and for some reason the Indiana Pacers.

Irsay has not yet claimed that he was hacked, and there has been no statement issued from the team. It may be difficult for Irsay, the team, and the league to say nothing about this one, given the extent to which it’s been noticed and mentioned. Six hours later, “Jim Irsay” is still one of the top trending topics on Twitter.

If Irsay was hacked (again), it’s probably time for him to make his password considerably stronger than something like “GoColts” or “PluralLombardies” or “WhereHaveYouGonePeytonManning” or “WhyDidIFireBillPolian” or “passwurd.”

    He’s an embarrassment to the city and the team his daddy gave him. Had he not been born with a silver coke spoon in his mouth/nose, he would probably be living in a van down by the river.

    It is amazing I presume most hacks coincide with the owner of the account probably having one too many at the neighborhood Applebees.

    I seriously doubt that Jim Irsay was hacked. He probably made those tweets while in a crazed drug/alcohol induced stupor…which he’s in more often than not. I’m old enough to remember that his dad (Bob) was also a drunken fool.

    Don’t laugh. This is the kind of thing that might lead to four years in the oval office. More pics please!

    lmao you can’t make this stuff up. Was she holding a pill bottle?

    Guessing all those female employees they are trying to hire are not happy

    Is anyone sure this isn’t trump tweeting?

  8. exinsidetrader says: Jun 29, 2017 7:18 AM

    You know that thousands of hackers try every day to break into President TRUMP’s twitter account without success, but ole Jim seems to get hacked on the regular.

    Either one of them is better at password protection than the other or Jim is using an excuse he has heard from countless athletes after they screw-up.

    Belichick did it.

    Unfortunately, Andrew Luck saw the photo before it was deleted and is now on the non-football injury list.

  12. southpaw557 says: Jun 29, 2017 7:48 AM

    ha ha ha ha, then we all laughed, Irsay set up an 8 ball and another woman overdosed. ha ha ha. Now, about those player suspensions for smoking pot…..

    Jimmy’s back on the sauce..Don’t touch Jimmy!

    “High” Tweeting is dangerous. Just sayin’

    Jim really enjoys Viagra, Vicodin and Valium.

  19. ariani1985 says: Jun 29, 2017 8:49 AM

    or “pills?

    this thread is going to be fun!

  20. kd75 says: Jun 29, 2017 8:50 AM

    That’s the stupidest password I’ve ever heard in my life! That’s the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!

  21. floridaslonechargersfan says: Jun 29, 2017 8:51 AM

    This is definitely more embarrassing than the Runner-Up banner.

  22. abninf says: Jun 29, 2017 8:52 AM

    Better than posting a picture of a naked dude.

    Jimmy still seems obsessed with proper inflation levels.

    You can delete my comments faster than that.

  26. boxscore20k says: Jun 29, 2017 9:08 AM

    He’s back on the drugs. Or booze. Or most likely both.

  27. boxscore20k says: Jun 29, 2017 9:10 AM

    I retract my last post. It was the Russians or possibly the Patriots

  28. fballlvr22 says: Jun 29, 2017 9:19 AM

    I’m here for the comments.

    Just being honest…

  29. saints737 says: Jun 29, 2017 9:28 AM

    Bill Polian was a terrbile GM that wasted the prime years of one of the greatest players to play to game in Peyton Manning…

    Why would get regret firing him?

  30. factschecker says: Jun 29, 2017 9:55 AM

    If you look at the photo linked to the story there is no denying that Irsay sent it because she has a banner hanging in front of her censored parts.

  31. nhpats says: Jun 29, 2017 10:08 AM

    This guy is an embarrassment. As punishment, the league should move the Colts back to the AFC East and move the Dolphins to the AFC South allowing the Patriots to pummel the Colts into submission twice each year.

  32. bert1913 says: Jun 29, 2017 10:27 AM

    Andrew should add bad to his last name

  33. webofbelief says: Jun 29, 2017 10:28 AM

    Pelosi is already saying that Trump and Russia did it!

  34. somehomer says: Jun 29, 2017 10:32 AM

    Top tolerance in the league

  35. jgedgar70 says: Jun 29, 2017 10:52 AM

    Good grief, Jim. If you’re going to get back on the nose candy, at least have the good sense to pass your phone over to Greg Hardy beforehand.

  36. margoadams says: Jun 29, 2017 11:01 AM

    #DeflateGate Karma continues.

  37. mksnpcola says: Jun 29, 2017 11:03 AM

    Stay classy Jim…

  38. redright88thefumblethedrive says: Jun 29, 2017 12:15 PM

    Well they do win the off season on the regular right?

  39. tommyribs says: Jun 29, 2017 12:54 PM

    Makes you wonder if Irsay is # 1 on the list of Liabilites that Goodell keeps locked in his Office drawer.

  40. youbettercallsaul says: Jun 29, 2017 1:42 PM

    Jim is like the crazy drunk uncle we all have or have heard about. During family gatherings, he has one too many, passes out on the couch, usually “loses” his pants, makes a pass at someones’ wife, or is showing the kids what he “learned while away for several years”.
    Irsay you are a gift that keeps on giving, and it is a refreshing change of pace from the articles about he who should not be named.

    Apple, tree.

  42. bobthebillsfan says: Jun 29, 2017 1:55 PM

    I agree totally with nhpats. If this happened there would be competition in the division again – for last place.

  43. jsavage58 says: Jun 29, 2017 4:20 PM

    And if a player did it? Commissioner determines the punishment.. Fines, games, sensitivity training?

    This OWNER does it.. chuckles, yuks and a pass.

    He’s the 21st Century Jerry Jones.
