This kind of reminds me of the non-support in Houston when the Oilers were leaving. A public gathering set up to keep the Oilers in Houston drew about the same number of people. Ouch. The personification of "fair-weather fans"?

Roundup: Small crowd greets Colts at airport
Posted: February 9th, 2010 | NFL.com

While the Saints returned to New Orleans and prepared for their championship parade, just 11 people welcomed home the Super Bowl-losing Colts on Monday, according to the Indianapolis Star.

“Win or lose, they’re still our team,” said Karen Calhoun, who carried a “Where’s the parade” sign.

Unfortunately for Colts fans, the parade will be in New Orleans.

They have to at least appreciate the great run they had this year.

I can picture about 10,000 people standing around in the wrong airport all dressed in their Colts gear, all wondering WTF is going on.

I bet it's because the fans sat all their starters at the end of the season.

And maybe another in Shreveport. Bob Dole might invest in the hour drive to watch that one, since they are proposing to have it this weekend along with the Mardi Gras stuff.

I heard that Indy was the 4th highest percentage viewership for the game righ behind N.O., Washington DC and Nashville. DC I guess I can get, they were buried in snow but why Nashville had a higher viewership than Indianapolis, who knows?

They should be like the Cubs, and hold their parades before they play in the post season.

It IS pretty pathetic. Hell, after the Pats blew the perfect season, at least we had around 200 people show up at Gillette Stadium to greet the team when they came back. 11? LMAO Just shows what a bunch of pink-hatters they have out there.

Not everyone in Indianapolis is disappointed that the Colts lost the Super Bowl.

It turns out that hundreds of thousands of New Orleans Saints Super Bowl championship shirts are being made in the Adidas Group plant in Indianapolis. And since Saints memorabilia sells better than Colts memorabilia, the Saints' victory makes the folks at the plant very happy.

"From a business standpoint, the Saints' win is tremendous for us," the plant's general manager, Blake Lundberg, told the Indianapolis Star. "It will be a very nice long week for us."

In pre-orders, Saints Super Bowl merchandise was selling at four times the rate of Colts Super Bowl merchandise, and the plant in Indianapolis is expecting it to keep selling at huge volume through Mardi Gras. Plant employees will be working 12-hour shifts five days a week, making nothing but Super Bowl clothing, shipping out 130,000 shirts a day.

I heard that New Orleans was going to have a big parade for the Saints, win or lose.

Sounds like the Indy fans are getting just a tiny bit jaded by success only to be let down in the end.

Indy is starting to become the Atlanta Braves of the NFL.

I know, its because Peyton Manning played QB for Tennessee.

More like there was going to be a parade full of drunks anyway, and around halfway through most of them would look at the street and go, "Hey, there's a football team out there in flatbed trucks! Did we win something?" LMAO
