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. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
