Most of the news stories revolving around the Andrew Luck surprise retirement have talked about how the fans boo'd and how evil the fans are. Most of the players and media came out condemning the fans while a few in the media tried to express fan frustration at the entire situation.
What is your view? Did fans have a right to boo?
My view is that they were. You've been at the stadium for hours, paying full price to watch the guy who will be working at Walmart next week tackle the guy who will be at Burger King while the future XFL backup misses his block so you aren't in the best of moods. You've been dealing with Luck injuries for years but now is the time the Colts are on their way up. You see Andrew Luck on the sideline laughing and joking with his buddies and he has been telling the media that he thinks he'll be ready for week one when suddenly the word starts to spread around the stadium that Luck is going to call it quits. So the game mercifully ends with an awful performance by the Colts and you are supposed to be happy? The fans that have been lied to for years about Luck's health are suddenly supposed to forget all of the times that Irsay and the rest of the Colts lied to them about the coming good times? About Luck's actual health?
The moment that they knew that Luck was retiring they should have called a press conference but instead they tried to keep it quiet for days and they got caught looking foolish when it leaked a head of time. But it is actually the perfect example of Luck's time with the Colts, tons of opportunity but they managed to mess up the delivery and wasted a generational opportunity.
