So how mad are the Ravens fans that the team had to go play the opener in Denver instead of opening the season at home? Can't believe the (piddley) baseball game couldn't be played earlier or something to allow your World Champ Ravens to open at home.

You can lay blame on both teams for this loss. First the Orioles for not bending their schedule and second for the Ravens for not travelling out to Denver earlier so that the team could acclimate to the thinner air of >5000 feet. Notice that they lost it in the second half, when players more accustomed to the thin air had more stamina.

Ya, they were TOAST in that 2nd half between the thin air and Peyton snapping the ball every 20 seconds. I think Peyton Manning is the greatest QB ever and loved that game. Didn't hurt I have him in 1 of 2 of my FFLs and D. Thomas in both!

If this were the scenario for my hometeam (VIKINGS) I would be raising holy he** with the Twins and MLB. Course we don't have that problem any longer with the Twins Target Field.

I don't blame the Orioles one bit. Their schedule was set before the Ravens won the Super Bowl, they aren't obligated to go out of their way to accommodate a football team, especially not while they're struggling to stay in the pennant race. I know it's tradition for the defending champs to open the season, but had it been that important to the Ravens, they surely could have asked to open the season on Sunday night, at home, and the NFL would have been huge jerks not to allow that and move a different game to Thursday night (GB @ SF would have been a tasty matchup).

It is completely the NFL's fault. The O's have nothing to do with this.

This drivel is getting quite tiresome. The NFL is entirely to blame here. It's not as simple as the Orioles agreeing to move the game. There's also the White Sox and Major League players' association to consider. And it's not a "piddley" baseball game when the team is only a few games out of the playoff hunt. Plus, this whole Super Bowl winner playing the first game of the season thing is a relatively new phenomenon.

Sorry you weren't able to see the Ravens get trounced in person.

Agreed. Ravens still have 8 home games and 8 away games.

Let's go O's

okay thennnnnnn....

anyway...

It really did suck that they couldn't work something out. I think the Orioles crowd was something like 17-20k in attendance. The Orioles sent some tickets to a few local colleges for the students. That didn't seem to work.

If the Ravens could have had that game at home it probably would have brought even more money for the city, it would have put the city on display.(well the good parts I guess).

I've come to the conclusion that last years O's were most likely a fluke. They will finish possibly 4th in the division. Oh wells.
