    However, in the early days, teams moved around even more. And well, they are professional sports teams which means they are businesses.

    I liked how the Browns owner chose to start a new team and allowed an expansion team to continue in Cleveland a few years later. The Colts move was about the dirtiest move in the modern sports era.

    And how many Rams are in the St. Louis area? Are there actually and cardinals in Arizona? Tennesse Oilers? Glad they chaged their name... but the Titans is the original name of the Jets.

    :-) Good to hear from you Hedwig, I've only been an occasional lurker for the last year.

      We're only a year wackier ... :)

      Perhaps...and I even have respect for Payton...although I think the little dink throws to 3' tall receivers 8" past the line of scrimmage by him and Tom Brady...don't thrill me...not to mention the no huddle where he just stands there barking for 30 seconds...but I don't see why they couldn't have just closed the books on Baltimore Colts team records.

        I don't think the folks in Indiana would have cared. A whole new franchise name, expansion team, whatever...

        Most of us have a lot of respect for the Baltimore era and the fans. The Baltimore Colts, from a fan perspective, belong to the Baltimore.
