Is pro football headed down the wrong road?
By Bill Barrows
 
Is it just me or is the NFL becoming less interesting to watch?  I have been a Colts fan my entire life, dating back to the mid 60’s when my dad introduced me to it on an old black and white television. There was a slumped shouldered quarterback with black high topped shoes and a flat top haircut named Johnny Unitas that captured my imagination. I’ve been a Colts fan ever since, through thick and thin. I loved watching them through the Manning era and up until now, even thru Andrew Luck’s injury plagued career.
