Indianapolis Colts Notes, Quotes 2009-04-10
--First-year coach Jim Caldwell will put the Colts through their organized team activities beginning May 19. Although the NFL allows teams a maximum of 14 OTA sessions as part of their offseason conditioning program, Caldwell has scheduled only 10, according to the league: May 19, 21, 26 and 28, June 1-3 and June 9-11.


--Indianapolis Colts cheerleaders are in the middle of a 25-day tour of United States military bases in the Mediterranean region. Team officials say the cheerleaders are scheduled to stage at least a dozen 90-minute variety shows.

--The Colts anticipate a 95 percent season ticket renewal rate for the 2009 season. The franchise has sold out 79 of 80 regular-season games since 1999, including 46 straight.

"We've had some people (not renew), and some of those have told us it's the economy," Pete Ward, the Colts senior executive vice president, said recently. "Others have told us they're planning on holding on even with the economy because they don't want to lose their seats."

--The team is in the process of replacing season ticket holders who chose not to renew. Season ticket holders get the first crack at adding to their allotment. If seats remain, the team will turn to a waiting list of nearly 25,000.

"I think we'll get into the waiting list this year," Ward said.

--In a related matter, all 141 suites at Lucas Oil Stadium have been sold for the 2009 season.

--Former Colts coach Tony Dungy has declined an invitation to join President Barack Obama's council on faith-based initiatives, citing scheduling conflicts, a White House spokesman said. Dungy, however, will still advise Obama on fatherhood issues and help lead that effort, the spokesman said.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "The (Colts draft) board already exists based on grades that (team) scouts developed in December. Then, we begin to go at it round by round. We adjust based on what we know now." -- Indianapolis team president Bill Polian on how his team is beginning to ratchet up preparations for the upcoming NFL Draft.
