Fans Boo Andrew Luck’s Decision To Retire Early
Plenty of people are defending Andrew Luck’s decision to retire early, but the surprise announcement prompted some fans to boo the quarterback.
Luck says constant injuries have taken the joy out of the games and the only way forward is to remove himself from football.
The 29-year-old was on the sidelines for the Indianapolis Colts’ third preseason game on Saturday.
Injuries kept him on the bench for several games since 2015, including the entire 2017 season.
“I’m in pain, I’m still in pain. It’s been four years of this pain, rehab cycle,” Luck told reporters on Saturday. “This is the hardest decision of my life.”
Some angry fans are now burning their Andrew Luck jerseys and sharing the video social media.
Meanwhile, there are Colts season ticket owners who are reportedly demanding their money back for the entire season, according to The Athletic, which is reporting that fans flooded the team’s home office with angry phone calls.
