They Hate the New England Patriots
All Colts fans have an all-consuming hatred for the New England Patriots. Past years in the Super Bowl battles between these two teams were unofficially called the Manny versus Brady Bowl.

They’d Rather Forget the 2011 Season
The 2011 Super Bowl season is one that all Indianapolis supporters would rather forget. The Colts lost significantly and got the worst record in NFL history that year. With the pick of number one Andrew Luck, they were able to turn the season around. However, it didn’t remove the thorn in the sides of die-hard Colts fans.
They Still Mention About Spygate
The Spygate scandal happened in the 2007 season when the Patriots were reprimanded for videotaping the NY Jets’ defensive coaches’ playing signals from an unsanctioned location. It’s not illegal to tape opposing coaches’ playing signals. However, it’s illegal to videotape them from unsanctioned areas since there are approved areas set out for such activities.
The Patriot’s head coach, Bill Belichick, was fined $500,000. The NFL stated that it was an action that deliberately disobeyed the rules and discouraged fair play. Although the incident has long been forgotten by most, some Colts supporters like to remind Patriots fans.
