    This week, the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy, appearing at a pro-traditional family meeting in Indiana, said he supports state legislation defining marriage as the union solely between one man and one woman. Speaking at the Indiana Family Institute, where he received a "Friend of Family" award, Coach Dungy said he embraces the stance of the organization, which works to protect traditional marriage. "We're not trying to downgrade anyone else," he stated. "But we're trying to promote the family – family values the Lord's way." Not surprisingly, his comments have drawn criticism from homosexual-rights organizations that...

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Tony Dungy is a deeply religious man who puts his faith first in his life, even above family and football. So his support of a proposed gay-marriage ban likely surprised few. What was surprising is the Indianapolis Colts' quiet coach shared his position publicly, sparking discussion about the impact of the Super Bowl winner's comments. Dungy caused a stir Tuesday when he accepted the "Friend of Family" award from the conservative Indiana Family Institute. The coach told the audience he supported the group's efforts to amend the Indiana constitution to define marriage as between one man and one...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Local and national gay-rights groups are questioning Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy's decision to appear at a fundraising banquet this month for a group backing a proposed state ban on same-sex marriage. The Indiana Family Institute, a conservative Christian group affiliated with Focus on the Family, plans to honor Dungy on March 20 with its "Friend of the Family" award at a banquet in suburban Carmel. The Indiana Family Institute has been a leading supporter of a proposed state constitutional amendment defining marriage as only between one man and one woman. "I am a little disappointed in that...

    INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis Colts running back Dominic Rhodes faces a drunken driving charge after state troopers arrested him Tuesday. Rhodes, 28, was pulled over about 3 a.m. driving a GMC truck 81 mph in a 55-mph zone on Interstate 65 in Indianapolis' far northwest side, Indiana State Police spokesman 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said. "It was a normal, run-of-the-mill drunk driving arrest," Bursten said. Rhodes was cooperative with the state troopers who arrested him, police said. He was held overnight and released on his own recognizance after an initial hearing Tuesday afternoon. Rhodes, who wore a black sweat suit with...

    Everybody thinks Indianapolis Colts coach and Super Bowl XLI champion Tony Dungy is a great guy. Including me. His calm, considerate approach to the violent game of football is a refreshing departure from the manic, brutal skill set of so many other coaches. Yet there is a part of Dungy's philosophy that troubles me -- and, I believe, many others -- and that is his insistence upon making proper coaching not just a matter of good heart but of religious zeal, even dogma. God, he said, was responsible for the Colts' 29-17 victory against the Bears. Indeed, in the relatively...

The 26-year-old man from Forsyth, Ill., told friends that if his beloved team didn't win the Super Bowl, he'd become Peyton Manning after the Indianapolis Colts star quarterback. He even signed a petition in front of 200 people at a bar Friday night that he'd do it. After the Colts defeated the Bears 29-17 on Sunday, Wiese started the process. He trudged to the Macon County Courts Facility on Tuesday and filed the paperwork. The change still has to be approved...

    Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy will be the guest of honor next month at a major fundraiser for one of the lead homophobic organizations in Indiana, the Indiana Family Institute. The IFI is affiliated with super homophobe James Dobson and his extreme right, anti-gay Focus on the Family. But what's even worse, the Colts appear to have endorsed the fundraiser, apparently permitting their logo to appear on the event's official flyer, and permitting the coach to appear in the flyer in uniform and on the job. Yes, in America you have the right to be a homophobic bigot and lend...

    Super Bowl XLI had been hyped as a major social milestone in U.S. history, since for the time, the head coaches of both teams were black. But when the game was over and the Indianapolis Colts had defeated the Chicago Bears 29-17, the winning coach said Jesus Christ was more important than any racial moment. During the nationally televised post-game show on CBS, coach Tony Dungy was asked specifically about the "social significance." Jim Nantz of CBS Sports: This is one of those moments, Tony, where there is also social significance in this victory, and to have your hands on...

Manning said his performance in the play was proof that he could come through in the clutch. "It was a full-on tango," Manning recalled. Manning...

    INDIANAPOLIS — The NFL has nixed a church's plans to use a wall projector to show the Colts-Bears Super Bowl game, saying it would violate copyright laws. NFL officials spotted a promotion of Fall Creek Baptist Church's "Super Bowl Bash" on the church Web site last week and overnighted a letter to the pastor demanding the party be canceled, the church said. Initially, the league objected to the church's plan to charge a fee to attend and that the church used the license-protected words "Super Bowl" in its promotions. Pastor John D. Newland said he told the NFL his church...

I'm not talking about the number of future Hall of Famers on the roster; I'm talking about number of Absolute Wild Men on the roster. In those two departments, the '85 Bears would whip the current edition about 73-0. The game would be over before Prince cleared his throat.

    It has become one of the great American sports traditions, the political bet. A major game gets people all worked up and happy at the same time, not worrying about snow removal, potholes or taxes. And that makes it safe for a governor or mayor to get in on it. So rival politicians bet something that screams out the identity of their hometowns. Two weeks ago the Bears beat the Seattle Seahawks, and Mayor Daley took Seattle Mayor Greg Nickles for beer, coffee and salmon.

And in terms of compensation, contracts for tailbacks don't get much bigger than the one James signed in culminating his weekend visit with Arizona officials and coaches. ESPN.com has...

    HONOLULU -- Peyton Manning called teammate Mike Vanderjagt an "idiot kicker" at the Pro Bowl on Sunday, three days after Vanderjagt apologized for making disparaging remarks about the Indianapolis Colts quarterback. Some Colts officials are almost as surprised by Peyton Manning's comments about kicker Mike Vanderjagt as they were by Vanderjagt's original statements. The Colts have not said publicly whether Vanderjagt will be welcomed back to the team after his criticisms of Manning and head coach Tony Dungy. One thing is certain: There are no cap implications that would prevent the Colts from releasing or trading Vanderjagt. In fact, they...
