In Indy, they follow the ‘Manning Rule’

INDIANAPOLIS — Here at Lucas Oil Stadium, every entrance, exit and checkpoint is dotted with security men decked in apple-red sports coats.

Most of these security personnel who man the NFL Scouting Combine also work Colts games during the season, and one of the red coats said he couldn’t imagine a better stadium to be in on Sundays.

Pointing out the retractable roof, he said it’s rarely opened for games.

“The ‘Manning Rule,'” he said. “We don’t open that thing unless it’s the perfect conditions for Peyton.”

Two other security men promised next year’s Super Bowl XLVI would be a hit, citing the extensive network of tunnels that connect the stadium to multiple hotels and meeting centers in downtown Indianapolis. Rain or shine, fans can get from their hotel room to the field without so much as feeling the breeze.
