    Steeler fan @ Colts training camp given Andrew Luck jersey to put over Steeler jersey

    Pagano gives Steelers fan Luck jersey
    Posted by Mike Florio on July 30, 2012, 9:17 PM EDT

    Steelers fans travel really well. They travel so well that one of them showed up Monday at Colts practice wearing a Steelers jersey.

    And while that may not be an issue if the Steelers fan had invaded Lucas Oil Stadium, Colts safety Tom Zbikowski and coach Chuck Pagano decided to take action.

    According to the Associated Press, Pagano gave the Steelers fan and Andrew Luck jersey and a choice: Get it on, or get out.

    “[Zbikowski] saw it and said, ‘Look Coach we got to do something about that,’” Pagano said. ”I went over there. He’s a huge [former Steelers and current Colts offensive coordinator Bruce] Arians fan, obviously, and [former Steelers and current Colts running back] Mewelde Moore. So with a little bit of coaching and a brand new Andrew Luck jersey, I said, ‘Look, you’ve got to put this jersey on. If you do it, you get to stay, if not we’ve got to escort you out of here.’”

    The fan, Zach Simmons, says he wasn’t trying to cause trouble. ”I’m trying to get Bruce Arians and Mewelde Moore’s attention,” Simmons said. ”I am still kind of in shock, but it was pretty cool for my buddies I came with.”

    For Zbikowski and Pagano, the sight of a Steelers jersey was more likely to trigger a negative reaction. Both men came from the Baltimore Ravens, bitter rivals of the Steelers in the AFC North.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    I think "Big Arians" is his nick name, due to his arrogance or gut or something.

    And, I would have left the jersey on the ground and left, too. Steelers or death.

    He should have told Pagano that he would only accept the Luck jersey if Andrew himself signed it (after all, the rookie QB was right there). Then he could sell the signed Luck Colts jersey for big bucks, and bought more Steeler jerseys with the profits.
