    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...

    Winning the Lord's way Father Raymond J. De Souza, National Post Published: Thursday, February 08, 2007 Football is America's game, and racism is America's aboriginal sin. That the former might offer a measure of redemption for the latter is just too good to be true. Yet it was true on Sunday as Super Bowl XLI served up not one, but two, black head coaches, meaning that fans of either team didn't have to worry about cheering against the first black coach to win an NFL championship. In the event it was Tony Dungy, coach of the Indianapolis Colts, who...

    DECATUR, Ill. -- He doesn't want to do it, but die-hard Bears fan Scott Wiese is changing his name. 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...
  • Superbowl team, Indianapolis Colts, appears to endorse homophobic hate group

    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...

    NFL's Best Fans Welcome Home World Champions INDIANAPOLIS - They celebrated in Miami, and the celebration continued on the plane ride to Indianapolis. But through those moments, through the late hours of Sunday night, and the wee hours of Monday, Colts Head Coach Tony Dungy said the players and coaches were anticipating a climactic moment. It came early Monday evening. It was well worth the wait. Around 7 p.m., the 2006 World Champion Colts entered the RCA Dome after a parade through fan-lined streets in downtown Indianapolis. More than 45,000 fans packed into the RCA Dome. They cheered, roared and...

    Michigan Lawmakers Propose Tony Dungy DayPOSTED: 5:29 pm EST February 5, 2007 LANSING, Mich. -- State lawmakers on Monday proposed a day honoring Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, who was born and raised in Michigan. Dungy, whose Colts won the Super Bowl, is from Jackson, where he excelled in football at Parkside High School. He is the first black coach to win a Super Bowl. "Because of the strength of his character, as well as his success on the field, Tony Dungy is an inspiration to all of us," said Senate Minority Leader Mark Schauer, D-Battle Creek, whose district includes...

    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...

    MIAMI - OK, it didn't rain 40 days and 40 nights, but the deluge was Biblical enough. Anyway, if someone had built an ark, they would have slapped blinking lights and Hooters girls on it and had Prince sing from the crow's nest. It's the Super Bowl, after all. And then there would have been the problem of finding two of every kind. There's only one Tony Dungy. The morning Bible reading earlier in the week, before a walk on the beach with Indianapolis Colts assistant coach Clyde Christensen - yes, that Clyde - was about Moses leading the Israelites...

    MIAMI -- A middle school play video Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning referenced on Wednesday when asked if he could deal with pressure situations has surfaced, thanks to a former classmate who now lives Boston. "There's video. Don't look for it -- it's deep in the Manning vault, I can assure you," Manning said during a Wednesday press conference in southern Florida, where his Colts play the Bears in the NFL's championship game on Sunday. 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...

My oldest's middle name is Payton. Not PEyton but PAyton. Bears 31 Colts 28. Bears keep Peyton off the field with solid running game. Grossman is steady but not spectacular just like he was against the Saints. Doesn't turn the ball over, overall stats nothing to write home about but he makes the plays and passes when he needs to.
