  Pat McAfee describes his shocking first conversation with former Colts GM Ryan Grigson Not the best way to start a new relationship.The Indianapolis Colts parted ways with general manager Ryan Grigson this offseason just one year after signing him to a contract extension. It was the best decision the team could have made as the Colts continued to flirt with .500 rather than rising well above it for a playoff spot.

It isn't a well-kept secret that Pat McAfee cannot stand former Colts general manager Ryan Grigson.

And now we know why.

According to the retired Colts punter, Grigson said during the pair's first meeting after the GM took over that he would not have kept McAfee on the team if it wasn't for Colts owner Jim Irsay.

“The first conversation we had together,” McAfee told PFT Live. “He told me I was the lowest thing in the organization, and he does not want to keep me. Mr. Irsay is forcing him to do it. That’s our first conversation we had.

"Whenever he cut our entire team (in 2012) and only kept a couple people, the first conversation he told me I was the lowest thing in the organization and the only reason why I’m there because for some reason, Mr. Irsay won’t cut (me). Literally. It’s not a love-hate relationship. It’s been a hate relationship since day one. Whenever he got fired, I was real excited. It was a great day in my life."

Chiefs latest to ignore timing, logic with GM firing

  Chiefs latest to ignore timing, logic with GM firing Whacking front-office executives so late is the trend of the NFL offseason. John Dorsey joins several others who are out of work for puzzling reasons.But they generally don’t happen the way they have this offseason. Not when they’ve happened. Not for the reasons they’ve happened. Not to teams that are coming off division titles, or winning seasons. Not to teams with combinations of the above.

Pat McAfee , the former punter for the Indianapolis Colts , announced overnight that he is retiring from the NFL to pursue a career with Barstool. But going back to what McAfee had mentioned earlier, was it really Jim Irsay that told Ryan Grigson that he had to keep McAfee ?

The topic of Grigson came up when McAfee was asked what NFL trade he would implement immediately.

McAfee said for the Browns, who hired Grigson as a senior personnel executive last month, to send the executive to the Canadian Football League.

“The only way the Cleveland Browns could get worse, they brought him in," McAfee said. "I’m trying to save the Cleveland Browns because the people of Cleveland deserve it. They’re beautiful, they’re amazing people. I think they should just send him to Canada. I think it would be great news for everybody, and for America, and that’s what I’m really here for. America.”

Considering the Browns would have to go 0-16 for them to be worse than last season, that is a bold statement from McAfee.

Celtic Colts could enter the SPFL for the 2018/19 season .
In the 2018/19 season, Celtic Colts could make their SPFL debut in either the Highland League or Lowland League, according to the Daily Record. The Hoops youngsters would then be expected to work their way up the leagues. However, they will not be allowed to rise any higher than League One. The team will consist of under-21 players, with the prospect of two overage players being able to take part. Celtic would have to register another stadium for the duration of the season, which must meet the minimum League Two ‘bronze’ standards, including floodlighting. One possibility is Greenock Morton’s stadium Cappielow, which has a capacity of over 11,000 and is regularly used by the youth squads. The young Bhoys will be part of the SPFL, however they will not be allowed to take part in the League Cup or Scottish Cup, unlike other SPFL teams. However, the Colts will continue to compete for the Challenge Cup. All 42 senior clubs are allowed to enter a Colts team into the SPFL. Although, because of financial reasons, the only other teams expected to enter one are Rangers, Aberdeen and Hibernian – who are all considering the idea.
