Statement from Greg Aiello, NFL senior VP of communications:

Quote:
“While we are disappointed for the fans in Baltimore, we appreciate the efforts of the Ravens, Orioles and Major League Baseball and understand the logistical problems in trying to schedule the teams on the same day. The Ravens will open the season on the road on Thursday night, September 5, in our annual NFL Kickoff Game on NBC. We are exploring potential fan activities in Baltimore around the Kickoff Game, including a pre-game concert.”


Wait, so we don't get to host the opener but they're still going to unleash Kid Rock on us? Hasn't Baltimore already been screwed enough here?


Pretty sure Joe Flacco's contract is at fault here...

PFT suggests that the Ravens open in Miami.

Our preference would be Miami, which would guarantee a sellout for the Dolphins, a high-profile team (at least for now) via their free-agency moves — which included the pilfering of Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. Also, having the NFL season start in South Florida could help when the time comes to finagle votes for the Sun Life Stadium renovation referendum.


Oh hell no.

No offense to Dolphin's fan, but no one wants to see that as a opener.

Opening game will either be @ Broncos or @ Steelers then. No other game is as compelling.

I think a rematch of the Broncos game would be a perfect Week 1 game.

Yeah, the idea screams "contrarian" and page hits to me.

This is disappointing for Ravens fans. Getting to open the NFL season at home should be a given right for winning the Super Bowl.

I pay absolutely no attention to baseball, but I now hope the Orioles have a terrible season, and lose the majority of their 5032 regular season games.

That a compromise can't be reached here stinks of politicking and money grubbing on the part of Goodell, whoever calls the shots in MLB, and this sleazy lawyer. I feel sorry for Steve Bisciotti that he has to deal with these people.

The opening game of the NFL season is supposed to be the time for the Super Bowl Champions to take a bow in front of their fans, to have the eyes of the nation on them as they get started defending their title. Now it's a choice between Denver and Pittsburgh, two places where no one will be particularly interested in letting the Ravens take centre stage.

How can you blame Goodell, he's like the last person you can blame.

He has his own partial blame with his statement that they wouldn't play wednesday at all. Also feel the NFL and MLB should actually work on having MLB teams that share parking facilities for both leagues have days off on that day or play on the road.

A lot of parties are at fault for this fiasco, not just the orioles. The white sox, mlb, mlbpa, orioles, nfl, and ravens all share a part in this situation.

^Agree they definitely should have let us play on Wednesday. But, I'm going to take it out on the Orioles anyway...

Make them open up their season as defending Super Bowl champs in Cleveland. That would be fun. Smile

Maybe I'm biased, but I legitimately can't see a way in which the Ravens share a piece of the blame here. They even offered to pay the Orioles in order to have them reschedule that game. They were put in an impossible situation by the stances that the NFL and the Orioles/MLB are taking.

The O's are Baltimore's oldest and most traditional team. It should be their call. It's not like they're losing a home game anyway, quit ur crying.
