Ravens signs to be posted in Denver before game versus BroncosBecause the NFL decided to make the Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens open on the road against the Broncos, there’s all kinds of stupid stuff that comes along with it. Like a celebratory concert in the city that isn’t even hosting the game and Ravens signage that the league will post in Denver prior to kickoff.

Well that second part doesn’t sit too with with Denver Post columnist Mike Klis, who writes that maybe, perhaps Broncos fans will retaliate against the league and create a “graffiti disturbance” around town.

Get this. Because the NFL promotes both teams for its Annual Kickoff Game, the league is putting up signage of both the Ravens and Broncos around Sports Authority Field at Mile High and downtown Denver. So if you see large posters of not only Peyton Manning but Joe Flacco, blame the league. If Ravens signage creates a graffiti disturbance around downtown Denver, blame the league.

Who in Denver wants to drive to work in the morning and see a reminder of Joe Flacco? I know it’s a unique situation where the defending Super Bowl champ opens on the road. But no circumstance will change the fact Denver belongs to the Broncos.

Yeah, vandalism — That’ll show the NFL!

Some of the comments on Klis’ blogpost are equally insightful.

NO doubt Klis……This is Bronco Country! No room for Flacco nor his over-rated teammates! Goodell and his bullying can take a kick in the rear because nothing but Bronco’s media is accepted here in Denver! I hope the opponenents media suffers what we call a setback!

Maybe some of those Flacco pictures could be quietly set on fire…

I’d tell Broncos fans to wipe our *** with those Ravens signs. But I’m afraid it would give us a rash!

Stupid outrage over something small and meaningless: must be football season.

  1. I live in Denver. The Denver sports media has thrown in the towel. When the preseason started it was SB or bust. But now it is whining about no RB and a poor LB core. Of course they are still sucking at the teet of Payton Manning.
