Two former Indianapolis Colts have joined forces with The Tyros LLC, a start-up technology company in Indianapolis.

John Standeford, a 2004 Purdue University graduate who still holds the Big Ten record for career yards accumulated, has joined The Tyros as head of business development. Standeford was a member of the 2006-07 Colts team that won the Super Bowl.

“Being a part of a team has always been important to me, and I like the team atmosphere of The Tyros,” he said. “I believe in the product, which speaks for itself, and I see great potential. We are a company that is going to change the sports industry forever.”

Another former Colt and vice president of the NFL Alumni Association’s Indianapolis chapter, Gary Padjen, has been elected to The Tyros Board of Advisors.

The Tyros offers an online training system for sports officials, a universal rating system that could also be used for certification, and an electronic scheduling system that will match officials’ qualifications with needs of game schedulers, and an automated payment system allowing game organizers to more efficiently pay officials, said the company’s CEO, Tony Monteleone.

Later this summer, the tech company plans to move its headquarters to Shelbyville’s new Intelliplex Technology Park.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
