Colts owner Jim Irsay has bought some high-end guitars and other items over the years, but has now found something that’s truly priceless.

Irsay announced on Twitter this afternoon that he acquired more than 10,000 N95 masks which he’s donating to medical personnel in Indiana to protect them against COVID-19.

The protective masks are in high demand now, so setting aside the fact that a billionaire football team owner was able to buy them, it’s a boost for the Indiana State Department of Health.

Irsay already donated $1 million to an Indiana food bank, as owners and players around the NFL continue to help as they can.

  1. 10k, not bad. or 0.00833 the amount Robert Kraft donated. Maybe sell a guitar or two and donate that money.

  2. Don’t get me wrong, this is great what teams, owners and others are doing, but why isn’t our Federal government ensuring that health care workers are supplied with these equipment ? It shouldn’t have to be other people, it’s the governments responsibility.

    He donated a million dollars last week also. It’s not a competition. It’s teamwork. What have you donated?

  5. 10k? Kraft charters some jets to get a more impactful amount and this rinky dink mouthbreather still shows what little turd he is and always has been, slithering in the background trying to get attention on the back of someone else who clearly is more of a leader and a superior person.

    He is probably talking to Goodell right now to try to frame Kraft out of jealousy.

    Look who the president is. He also cut cdc funding in 39 countries, including China.

    Trump caused it and still doesn’t care about people, only the stock market.

    Kraft is still in image repair mode after visiting the Orchids of Asia.

  9. This is not a time to go boasting or complaining about what people donate. Every little bit matters from a neighbor checking up on another or a Billionaire donating money or whatever. We are all in this together lets quit comparing and just be grateful for all donations.

  10. It shouldn’t have to be other people, it’s the governments responsibility.

    I don’t feel that it’s the federal government’s responsibility; I feel that the states themselves should bear the burden. Additionally, many healthcare facilities in this country are for-profit businesses that bill many times the cost of a consumable (i.e. $20 for a pair of latex gloves); arguably they should be bearing the cost on this.

    ********************************************************************************

    Individual states (and individual counties, cities, etc) will always be interested in the concerns of their own constituents. If every state is does it’s own thing, how do you ensure resources are equitably distributed and targeted to hot spots? Oiecemeal, localized approaches will result in competition between states/counties/cities over resources and non-optimal resource distribution. There must be coordinated, strategic nationwide mechanisms to address this.

  13. Why is the country reliant on billionaires donating PPE who have to pay huge premiums to purchase the product from a middle man who keeps the inflated price during pandemic. Trump is such a failure.

  14. Will PFT put my name in an article if I donate $20 worth of PPE? Same same; my income versus Irsay.

  15. I’ve noticed lots of whining here. Must be all of those armchair GMs with nothing better to do

  16. I commend ANY owner who has the resources and is helping out…reagrdless of the size of the donation. Thank you.
