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. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
