INDIANAPOLIS - Jim Irsay wants to be a better team owner.Six days after his six-game suspension ended, the 55-year-old Colts owner broke his silence by telling a small group of reporters that hes excited about the season, feeling well and is ready to move on.Ive always said Ive felt the role of a steward here and that you learn from your mistakes, Irsay said during a 30-minute news conference Wednesday. You move on, think you can be a better person and be better at everything you do.For Irsay, it was a tough, painful lesson.Just days before Indianapolis season opener in Denver, Irsay pleaded guilty to a misdemeanour count of driving while intoxicated and acknowledged he was under the influence of the painkillers oxycodone and hydrocodone when he was arrested March 16 near his home in suburban Carmel. Within hours of his court appearance, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down the suspension, which prevented Irsay from having any contact on football matters with the team or media.Some players contended Irsay got off light as his three daughters helped oversee the day-to-day football operations. He didnt address those concerns, saying only that he accepted the restrictions and followed them to the letter.But for a man who had never missed a Colts game after his father moved the team from Baltimore to Indy in 1984, there was nothing easy about the punishment.He watched intently as Indianapolis (4-2) lost its first two games, the longest losing streak of the Andrew Luck era, then watched gleefully as the Colts won four straight to move back into the AFC South lead after Thursdays win at Houston, just in time for his return to the office.All the while, Irsay watched the games nervously with family and friends, pacing anxiously as he waited to return to owners office hes had since 1997.I missed being there. It was tough not being with the guys before the game and praying with the guys before games. That was tough, he said, laughing as he acknowledged he talked with his daughters and relied on some of his favourite music to help him get through the tough times. A Jerry Garcia guitar was encased on the wall behind him.I really made up my mind to be positive about it, he added.The absence taught Irsay something else: He has to continue his recovery.In 2002, before the leagues personal conduct policy applied to team executives, Irsay acknowledged he had become dependent on painkillers after several years of orthopedic operations. He later claimed that after entering rehab, he had stayed clean and sober for years.So less than 48 hours after his March arrest, team officials said Irsay had voluntarily re-entered a treatment centre. He returned to the team in time for NFL draft weekend in May, then showed up several times at training camp. Players and coaches continually offered to support the man who signed their paychecks, even as details — various prescription drugs and more than $29,000 in cash were found in his vehicle — trickled out.Irsay didnt address the details of the arrest, but noted that being away did give him a different perspective on life in the NFL.When youre away from the team for something like that, you grow to appreciate it even more when youre back, Irsay said.Irsay was so eager to get back, he returned to the team complex within the first hour he could. And he was welcomed warmly.I couldnt even imagine how hard that was, punter Pat McAfee said. Youre talking about a guy whos been around the Colts his entire life, who personifies the Horseshoe. I was suspended one game years back and it was the worst, so I cant even imagine what six games must have been like for him.So after six excruciating weeks away from his team, Irsay plans to watch Sundays game, against the AFC North-leading Bengals (3-1-1), from the owners suite at Lucas Oil Stadium.And hes determined not to let anything force him to miss another game as long as he owns the Colts.I really am motivated to show up and do well every day, said Irsay, who still recounts his early days with the team as a ball boy for John Unitas.

Rod Carew Jersey .com) - The Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings are ready to put all the talk and hype surrounding their meeting at Dodger Stadium behind them.SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Smallrus finally hoisted a big PGA Tour trophy. Kevin Stadler, the 33-year-old son of major champion Craig "The Walrus" Stadler, won the Phoenix Open on Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory. Stadler won when playing partner Bubba Watson missed a five-foot par putt on 18. "It was a little weird way to win a golf tournament," Stadler said. "I fully expected him to make the putt. I would have rather made mine to win it." Stadler closed with a 3-under 68 for a one-stroke victory over Watson and Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask. Watson shot 71, and DeLaet had a 65. "He beat me," Watson said. "Hes a great player." Stadler won in his 239th tour start, earning a spot in the Masters -- a tournament his father won in 1982. The Stadlers are the ninth father-son winners in tour history and will be the first to play in the same Masters. "Its going to great for me because its really my last one," said Craig Stadler, a 13-time PGA Tour winner with nine Champions Tour victories. "I kept saying, When he gets in, thats my last one. ... Im proud of him. Its awesome." Kevin Stadler finished at 16-under 268 at TPC Scottsdale, his home course. Raised in Colorado, he played in Denver Broncos colours, wearing an orange shirt and blue pants and hat. What was he thinking when Watson was standing over his par putt on 18? "How long the playoff was going to take and how long until I can watch the football game?" Stadler said. After Stadler and Watson each saved par after hitting into the water on the par-5 15th, Stadler tied Watson for the lead with a par on the par-3 16th hole. Watson hit into the front left bunker on the stadium hole and his six-footer missed to the left. At the 347-yard 17th, they each drove the green and two-putted for birdie from 90 feet -- Watson holing out from 18 feet and Stadler from 5. On the par-4 18th, Stadler hit his 110-yard approach to the back right pin to 10 feet. Watson drove into the right rough and hammered his 120-yard second over the green. Watson bladed his shot from the trampled rough into the bank next to the green and it ran five feet past the hole. After Stadler missed his birdie try and tapped in for par, Watsons par try slid by the left side. "I thought I hit a good putt, but obviously I misread that, too," Watson said.dddddddddddd Stadler birdied the par-4 ninth to take a one-stroke lead over Watson, but fell behind with a double bogey on the par-4 11th. Stadler took a penalty stroke for an unplayable lie after driving into a Buckhorn Cholla and missed a 4-foot bogey try. "Cactus and short putt and all that was on one hole," Stadler said. "Eleven has had my number for years. I butcher that hole every year." Stadler likely will move up high enough in the world ranking to get one of the last spots in the 64-man Match Play Championship this month outside Tucson. Stadlers previous biggest win was in Australia in the European Tours 2006 Johnnie Walker Classic. In that event, he hit a 3-iron to a foot for an eagle on the final hole for a two-stroke victory. He also won the Argentine Open that winter and has four Nationwide Tour wins. "Its been a long time since I won anything," Stadler said. "Its pretty special." Watson is winless since the 2012 Masters. "I was a challenging day," Watson said. "Again, its the same thing, just waiting on every tee box and waiting on every shot." Hunter Mahan and Japans Hideki Matsuyama tied for fourth at 14 under. Mahan, the 2010 winner, finished with a 68, and Matsuyama shot 69. DeLaet bogeyed the 15th after hitting into the water, but rallied with birdies on the final two holes. He also tied for second last week at Torrey Pines. "I have been playing well for the last few months," DeLaet said. "I really feel like I worked super hard in the off-season. Its nice to see it paying off." Phil Mickelson closed with a 71 to tie for 42nd at 3 under. Lefty was making his 25th appearance in the event he won in 1996, 2005 and 2013. "My game is not far off, even though the score says that it is," Mickelson said. "It was just a fraction off." He showed no signs of the back pain that forced him to withdraw at Torrey Pines, and will play next week at Pebble Beach. "Back feels great," Mickelson said. The event drew an estimated 563,008 fans, breaking the seven-day record of 538,356 set in 2008. The tournament drew a golf-record 189,722 on Saturday and 60,232 on Sunday.
