Don't bother with it, i figured he learned his lesson from last time but clearly he didn't, some guys don't get it.

"If you don't find a thread interesting, don't enter it."

It's an official NFL trade for a player who started games last season for a playoff team. [And was ranked as the 15th best center in the league according to PFF], it deserves a thread.

I think he meant how did he find it. Not how did he think he was news.

He meant what daineraider said, based on history.

We should get back to topic though.

Strange that the Colts will trade the much cheaper and possibly better Shipley and keep Samson Satele but apparently the Colts believe 4th round pick Khaled Holmes is better.

No, I meant who searches Colts blogs for news?

What lesson was I supposed to learn?

What I really wanted to see was some childish argument that has no relevance to the thread at all when I clicked on the thread. Rolling Eyes

As for the football side of it, there is a simple reason for this trade. They had three players who they think can play C. Shipley, Satele and their 2013 4th round pick. They aren't going to ship the draft pick of course. So it's down to Satele and Shipley. Shipley, being younger and having a lower salary, has much more value. They wouldn't have gotten much back if they traded Satele. So if they saw Satele and Shipley as similar players, its easy to see why they shipped Shipley. Not that I agree but the logic is there.

I like that we added some more depth on the O line. It's always nice to have a vet there in case Gino Gradkowski doesn't work out. You also never know with injuries.
