Mother drafted him in the 3rd round.

Dear Mike Pence,
STFU.

Signed, everyone.

As a human being, I'm disappointed in Mike Pence's existence.

He is not among the best we have ever done as a species.

Please do better everyone.
 
2019-08-27 4:44:53 PM  
He wouldn't have stayed around to watch Luck play a whole game anyway.

Does anyone expect Mike Pence to possess a single iota of compassion or empathy?
 
2019-08-27 4:49:56 PM  
"...I'm disappointed to see him retire from the Indianapolis Colts as an almost lifelong fan of the Colts..."

...so Mike Pence didn't exist before 1984?  Or does he believe that life began at Peyton Manning?

Leaving the game because he's legitimately hurting is a million times more noble than leaving because you're a butthurt snowflake who can't handle a person kneeling, Mofo.

"He's gone through a tough four years, a lot of injuries, and I'm disappointed to see him retire from the Indianapolis Colts as an almost lifelong fan of the Colts, but I wish him well," Pence continued.

You're from Indiana, Mike, and your "life," such as it is, began in 1959.  The Colts moved from Baltimore to Indy in 1984, when you were 35.  Is that when your life began?  Or began again?

Actually, in Pence's view of the world, 1958.

After the way Andrew Luck was treated, the Colts deserve an 0-16 season.

And get the #1 pick yet again? I think they deserve 7-9 and at least three or four more years of Jacoby Brissett competing with this or that third-round flier each year who doesn't quite pan out.

Luck has taken thousands of violent collisions from 250+pound professional athletes in peak physical condition. At 29, he's already endured physical damage that will likely stick with him for the rest of his life.
I can't fault someone for getting out of the league while he still has the legs to carry him.
Is he supposed to end up like one of those 40-year old retired players who has had so many concussions he has trouble remembering his kids' names just to avoid upsetting some couchbound jocksniffer who's worried about his fantasy league?

They need to truly suffer. Their ungrateful fans have to sit through such sheer incompetence and misery that they start wearing brown bags on their heads.

Yes, how dare Andrew Luck not continue the cycle of injury and rehab until his shoulder is crab meat and he explodes in a shower of ligament and bone.

Oh wait, nevermind, that was just a bit of gas.

What TFA actually says:

Headline: Pence Says He's Disappointed ByAndrew Luck's Retirement

"He's gone through a tough four years, a lot of injuries, and I'm disappointed to see him retire from the Indianapolis Colts as an almost lifelong fan of the Colts, but I wish him well," Pence continued.


Pence says dumb things, but this isn't one of them. Subby either employs custom reading comprehension or is just looking to rile people up.

Go f*ck yourself, Mr. Pence. Go f*ck yourself.

And we were all disappointed that he used the Colts as a prop for his bullshiat walkout.

Read the article, read the quote. The summary in the Fark and the actual headlines both capture the accurate sentiment. He said he was disappointed that Luck retired.

No, it is pretty spot on. He is disappointed Luck retires BUT he wishes him well. He is a selfish jackass like all the selfish Colt fan jackssses who booed Luck as he left the field for the last time.
 
2019-08-27 9:16:20 PM  
I don't get the hate.  Well, in this particular case. Say what you will about his politics (and there is plenty to say), what's wrong with what he said?

Every fan of Luck, the Colts, and football in general is disappointed.

Not a Colts fan but I had put in about a grand on signed rookie cards and a signed jersey. Disappointed? As much as any other failed investment (thanks for all the reprints Konami!).

My mother in law spent a quarter of her budget in our auction league on him. If we knew Luck wasn't playing she coulda picked up Brisset for half and got a decent wr2. Disappointed? Just for logistical purposes.

He got hurt so many times that it came to this makes me sad; coming back from the abdominal injury and lacerated kidney alone was amazing enough, not to mention the shoulder injury. I mean, dude just got back to throwing an NFL size football a couple months ago. Disappointed? Well, we all love a comeback story, don't we?

With Mahomes looking like shiat of fark Mountain and Watson on the rise (with defenses behind them no less), we were ready for some epic football in the AFC, the likes of which hasn't been seen in near three decades it feels like. Disappointed? Absolutely. No dis to Brisset, but he's just not the same style QB and definitely not on the same level.

Had he stayed in, we'd have seen amazing performances and probably be talking about his retirement as a future HOF with 3 rings to his name 12 years from now. Disappointed? Makes me wanna cry.

Being disappointed at a situation doesn't involve bad feels towards the people in the situation, libmitter.
 
2019-08-27 10:05:43 PM  
Don't think booing by fans is the right reaction.  Oh no, we're screwed, or WTF would be my reaction.  Fingers crossed and knocking on wood that Carson Wentz's career does not follow this trajectory.
 
2019-08-27 10:27:02 PM  
Subby? Your headline sucks. If you don't like Pence just say so. Don't make shiat up.

Yeah god forbid anyone was a fan of the Baltimore Colts when they had ... *checks notes* ..... Johnny Unitas as QB. I'll make sure to lecture my dad about becoming a Colts fan in the 60s when there was no team within 3 hours of Indianapolis.

fark Pence, but my aunts and uncles would feel free confirm who my family rooted for and rip you for being a moron in the process.

Oh, and let's not pretend Pence is an actual fan. He's a sleazeball politician that only seems less dishonest than Trump because he mostly shuts his stupid, lying face sometimes.

You all do realize that there's a difference between being "disappointed by Luck's retirement" and being "disappointed with Luck"? But pointing that out to this crowd is a lesson in futility.

They would say they were lifelong Colts fans. Kinda like Pence

But what would plain English have to do with anyone. He literally refers to the teams separately. As much as I consider them two franchises, my dad's family does not.

Everyone saying this can go f*ck themselves. Darius Leonard, his All-Pro teammate, said his first reaction was "that's selfish!." No one is ripping him for it. I wasn't there and I wouldn't have booed but blaming people for a gut reaction after dealing with years of this shiat?
