NFL player Matt Overton offered on Monday to buy the tickets of the disgruntled Indianapolis Colts fans who demanded a refund after quarterback star Andrew Luck's sudden resignation.
Overton, who spent five seasons with the Colts, said on Twitter that he was "more than happy" to buy season tickets from "angry fans" and donate them to charity.
"For any Furious Colts Season Ticket Holders who request a refund would be delighted if they deducted their Seasonal Fee and donated them to RileyChildren's patients and their families," the Long Snapper tweeted Jacksonville Jaguars. "I'm serious."
"Riley Hospital is very important to me," Overton told the local Indianapolis station WTHR. "It's close and dear to the entire Indianapolis community, and if we can help those kids and families go to a game and cheer on their favorite team, the Colts, we'll let it happen."
ANDREW LUCK POTENTIALLY WALKING OF 500 MILLION. USD REMOVED WITH PURCHASE
Although it is unclear how many people actually accepted Overton's bid, one Colts spokesman said the team had only received a handful of calls to apply for reimbursements. According to the franchise team, the sale of individual and season tickets has been normal since Luck's announcement.
Overton still lives in Indianapolis during the offseason, and his fiancee is also out of town. The NFL star said he had not spoken to Luck since announcing his resignation, but had come in defense of his former teammate against some of the sharp online criticism.
"Obviously, you can say that he is going through a really big fight and has been going for quite some time." Now, the time has come, "Overton told WTHR," People question his character and his tenacity and all these things, and I think so "It's BS"

"The guy is incredibly strong." Obviously, he's just making some very difficult decisions and has made a very difficult decision "Retiring," he added.
"It's hard for the fan base. It's hard for the team. It's hard for the organization. And it's hard for people like me who played with him and friends to see him go through this. Only to hope that he finds this peace. "And joy and his health in the future."
