Here's a pic of the crash. Old Donald Kroner was trying to land the plane on the field and he almost made it-lol. But get this, he had been a flight instructor and worked in the air traffic control tower.
Good thing we got killed in the game 40-14 (I mean that was brutal) and people left early or some real people would have been killed and a lot of them.
Old Donald ended up in a mental institution.
Elway has said ever since it had nothing to do with Bmore but that's BS. He wasnt coming here- period and used baseball to get out.
And Bert Jones went out there to talk to him. He didnt' have to do that becuase he wasn't coming anyway. He told him all the horror stories like Irsay's slobbering press conference at the air port when he was drunk as a skunk and said he wasn't moving and how he crashed a radio interview Bert did after a game and they had to take it off the air. I remember that one. Irsay was a nut.
So Bert went out there but Elway wasn't coming anyway.
Kush played a hand in the final move. As soon as he got here he learned that Irsay was selling the team so he got the movers and shakers in Phoenix to make an offer to he could go home as head coach. He was run out of town after slapping a punter in the face for shanking a kick.
So Irsay went to Phoenix but then Indy heard about it and came in with an offer. Indy already had a new stadium an empty one.
Irsay still hadn't made up his mind to move until Schaeffer passed that stupid domain law where the state would take the team.
That's when Irsay skipped town in the middle of the night and he had a place to go to but Kush got the ball moving.
Then he had the nerve to say the move was the most bizzare thing he ever witnessed the way the movers came in and trashed the place.
"This year is very familiar."
I respectfully disagree. Bisciotti owns the the Ravens.
Name me any owner in the NFL who was/is a bigger piece of shit than the infamous Robert Irsay! (and credit only given for rationale! ;))
By the time we made it down the upper deck escalator, everone got excited and the buzz was about the plane crash in the upper deck (yes - that dumpy old stadium had escalators while the cheapskates who built M&T couldn'tfigure out how to provide them for us!). I missed seeing the crash itself - probably wouldn't have known it if I had seen it happen. I have never touched Sloe Gin again since that day.
LOL T - great story and keep em coming.
Speaking of those escalators they were installed at the Orioles home game and they crashed. A lot of kids got hurt, a girl was killed.
The irony was, it was safety day and a lot of safeties were there.
My parents were upset seeing it on the news because my brother and I were there but we already got off.
I called home as soon as I heard about it and saw it so they wouldn't be upset.
