Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay could have walked away from his team’s 39-33 against the Denver Broncos with class.

Nah.

Instead, Irsay once again decided to take shots at his critics - this time on Twitter. Irsay’s latest rant comes days after he took a shot at former quarterback Peyton Manning for not leading his team to more playoff wins and Super Bowl titles.

At first, Irsay starts off pretty innocently.

Hey, no problem with that.

Then Irsay decides to shout-out Colts fans for their support.

However, Irsay decided to take a shot at the media – nobody in particular – for slamming him after taking shots at Manning last week.

You are tweeting around 3 a.m.? Are you drunk?

Irsay follows that tweet by saying, “I do pray for you unhappy (expletive) slingers...who wants to live on a planet with those who don't like themselves..we want happy,kind people:)”

Ironically, Irsay decided to beat his chest after a regular season win, which is the same meaningless achievement he used to part ways with Manning. Irsay said he was not happy with winning in the regular season and not the postseason, and this rant would have made more sense after multiple Super Bowl wins, not a regular season victory. He could have just walked away with a great win and not tainted it with negative comments.

Of course, that would have required some class.
