Peyton Manning’s Image Removed from Lucas Oil Stadium

NOTICE: MR. MEHTA HAS SINCE TWEETED A RETRACTION.  MANNING’S PICTURES ARE STILL UP ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BUILDING.

Spotted in a tweet from New York Daily News reporter, Manish Mehta, the large image of Peyton Manning has been replaced with the Indianapolis Colts’ Horseshoe:

The Colts and their iconic future Hall of Fame quarterback look set to part ways after Manning underwent neck surgery last summer and missed the entire season. Colts’ owner Jim Irsay has publicly commented that the decision to remain is up to Manning provided the Colts can work out a contract that is also beneficial to the team. Manning is scheduled to receive a $28M bonus in March, after collecting $26M in 2011 without playing a snap. Manning has been the face of the franchise for over a decade since being selected with the #1 pick in the 1998 NFL draft. Subtle moves like this do nothing but reinforce the idea that in 2012, Manning will not be wearing a Colts’ uniform.

 

Peyton Manning's image no longer adorns the exterior of Lucas Oil Stadium.
