Comfortable uncomfortableness at Colts game

Bill Polian and Oliver Luck crossed paths at a football game recently and didn’t lower their pads.


Polian, who spent nearly 40 years working in the NFL in various roles, from scout to general manager, was vice chairman of the Indianapolis Colts from 1998 to 2011. Luck, who has held numerous executive positions in sports, is a former NFL quarterback whose son Andrew is the Colts’ QB. They ran into each other at Indianapolis’ season opener against Cincinnati.


“Oliver and I said hello to each other at the Colts game on Sunday,” Polian said recently. “Yeah, it was just a pleasant hello.”


The subject of the letter (see previous story) — or any other respective AAF or XFL business — didn’t come up.


“I saw Bill after the game,” Luck said. “We chatted a little bit. Just pleasantries.”
