ColtzfanIndianapolis Colts fans have a unique opportunity to have their picture displayed on one of 200 permanent banners at Lucas Oil Stadium, which is set to open in September. Colts team photographers will be on hand March 19 for a photo shoot which is free and open to the public. Colts officials said the photographers will be looking to photograph the zaniest, most fervent Colts fans in Indiana. The photo shoot will be at the 56th Street Colts complex from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Doors open at 3 p.m. The team will select the top 200 pictures from the photo shoot to be on permanent “12th man” banners inside Lucas Oil Stadium. Fans are encouraged to wear their craziest game-day attire, which may include face painting, blue hair or whatever fans would like to show they are the Biggest Colts Fan.

One fan from the top 200 pictures, will also win a VIP Experience to the home opener at Lucas Oil Stadium. The VIP Experience includes four tickets, pre-game on-field sideline access, limo to and from the game and dinner for four at a downtown restaurant. Fans being photographed for the Biggest Fan Contest will be asked to sign a waiver granting rights of the photograph to the Indianapolis Colts. 

Sports marketers are calling this latest stunt by the Colts’ sales staff a smart marketing move. What do you think?

  1. I could be wrong, but I don't think Butler views the new dorm as mere replacements for Schwitzer and or Ross.

  2. An increase of only 5% is awesome compared to what most consumers face or used to face before passage of the ACA. Imagine if the Medicaid program had been expanded to the 400k Hoosiers that would be eligible, the savings would have been substantial to the state and other policy holders. The GOP predictions of plan death spirals, astronomical premium hikes and shortages of care are all bunk. Hopefully voters are paying attention. The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a Obamacare), where fully implemented, has dramatically reduced the number of uninsured and helped contained the growth in healthcare costs.

  3. So much for competition lowering costs.

  4. As I understand the proposal, Keystone would take on the debt, not the city/CRC. So the $104K would not be used to service the $3.8M bond. Keystone would do that with its share.

  5. Adam C, if anything in Carmel is "packed in like sardines", you'll have to show me where you shop for groceries. Based on 2014 population estimates, Carmel has around 85,000 people spread across about 48 square miles, which puts its density at well below 1800 persons/sq mi, which is well below Indianapolis (already a very low-density city). Noblesville is minimally less dense than Carmel as well. The initiatives over the last few years have taken what was previously a provincial crossroads with no real identity beyond lack of poverty (and the predictably above-average school system) and turned it into a place with a discernible look, feel, and a center. Seriously, if you think Carmel is crowded, couldn't you opt to live in the remaining 95% of Indiana that still has an ultra-low density development pattern? Moreover, if you see Carmel as "over-saturated" have you ever been to Chicago--or just about any city outside of Indiana?
