Default The Epitome of Class

In an offseason full of headlines and signings by the organization, the epitome of class stays in the headlines not just for his play on the field, but his class off the field!

This is yet another reason why Peyton Manning is my favorite athlete of all time. The article just exudes why Peyton is such a class act.

I can't wait to read PM's retirement letter to KM.

I have to say that I liked it when PM wanted to honor Johnny Unitas by wearing black hightops. NFL truly was the No Fun League that day.

That was a very hot topic here with local Talk Radio. Peyton had reached out to one of Johnny's sons Joe bout his intentions to wear the high tops to honor his father. Joe said the idea was "great and he would love it."

Peyton's intentions were to pay any fine the league handed him, but didn't want the spot light and controversy while honoring such a historic figure of the game.

Both the Ravens and Colts declared they would wear "White" spikes as part of their uniform that season, which is why the NFL wouldn't allow either team to wear black hightops. Had they declared "Black" spikes, they wouldn't have violated league policy.

FTFY.

but your initial post reminds me of a saying i sometimes forget.
"Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

cause that's all i thought about when people were swearing up and down that Manning couldn't help this team.

This article reminds me of all the Tebow fluff we used to read. I however think Manning's is genuine. He has been doing this for years and nobody knew about it.
