    ESPN is reporting that Andrew Luck just up and retired tonight. The season is just two weeks away! The Colts were playing a preseason game when the news broke!



    OJ SIMPSON IS PISSED OFF.



    Andrew watch your back! Look out for any white Broncos.

    Maybe Colin Kaepernick can finally get a job. It isn't like there are huge numbers of quality QBs standing around waiting to be hired.

    They might as well keep Luck than.

    Don't know why everyone thinks Kaepernick was hot. He wasn't. He was like RGBIII. All hype.

    He did manage to QB San Francisco to a Super Bowl and come close to winning it. While that doesn't necessarily mean a player is great it does tend to mark a QB as at least above average.

    29 years old? At least he's young enough to start a new career. If he retired for injuries there would no point in staying on the job where his injuries will only get worse & worse.

    So he retires with more money than operating neurons. where is the hardship? What is the drama?He goes and starts some business or goes on a sportschannel, and someone else takes his place. Life goes on.

    IIRC Luck was paid around 90 million dollars for his seven years in the NFL. Maybe he's like former Patriot tight end Rob Gronkowski (Gronk). Gronk who retired after last season was reported to have been paid around 90 million dollars in his more than a decade in the league. He liked to brag that he hadn't spent one cent of the money he was paid by the Patriots. He lived on his money from marketing and endorsements over the years.

    and some fans were booing him for retiring. FUCK THE FANS! Luck doesn't owe them anything - everyone that booed him needs to get a fucking life. Some fans take their entertainment way, way too seriously.
