I'm a Colts fan, and I couldn't agree with this statement more. The game is just fine the way it is. We didn't get home field advantage and my team has nodoby to blame but themselves for not playing well in New England. I'm sick of excuses like "the refs screwed us" or "the weather sucked." Both excuses imply that that the game in unfair and needs to be changed and quite frankly, I'm disgusted.
Jim Harbaugh seemed to play just fine when the Colts were on the road during the 1995 playoff run that almost landed the Colts in the Super Bowl. Harbaugh's Colts won on the road in pouring rain in San Diego and hostile conditions in Kansas City before losing 20-16 in Three Rivers. This Colts team just can't win in Foxboro. Maybe when my beloved Colts build their new stadium, they'll leave the dome out and learn how to play outdoors.
