    I don't care for any team that is in the Ravens way. Hate is a little strong though especially against a city. That doesn't really make sense

As long as an Irsay is still associated with the team they will always be high on my "hierarchy of hate." But to reference the OP's comments, I now hate the Steelers more than the Irsays.
    Ed, I am with you on this. Still maybe because I am older than most on this forum, it still hurts that our history is in Indy. Maybe if the NFL did the right thing and gave it back, I would let go.

    I'm 40 and that seems to be the cut off.

    Folks older than me seem to still carry the hate.

    Folks younger than me seem to not care.

    For those of you younger than 40, this helps explain why all us old geysers still hate the team from Indianapolis.

    It's not like we don't know the story. Most of us grew up hearing it every single football season. It's just that we were far less personally effected. I was born a few weeks AFTER the vans rolled out of town.

    I can only be angry about having something I never experienced stolen for so long.

    I think that's why it's easier for me to embrace the Ravens as Baltimore's true team. I don't think of them as replacements, or as the "should be" Colts.

    I still hate them. I still root for injury when that team plays. I'd love to see Kruger end Luck's career next Sunday.

    Agree. As long as there's an Irsay running the team, they will get no free passes from me.

    This. You know, between winning the SB before the Irsays and the first 6 games against them, I think many fans let go of the hate. Not all fans, obviously, and, to be clear, I am NOT telling anybody how they should feel about the Colts or this game. But what really irritated me was how the media just assumed that ALL Ravens fans "hated" the Colts and they really did try to force that angle on their coverage the last playoff game in Baltimore. Hopefully, they will take a more balanced approach to this game, reflecting the diverse opinions of the fanbase.

    I agree. Although, I am on the north side of 40 and the "hate" (if you will) went away with the first win vs. them in 98 and the SB win (winning the trophy before Indianapolis). After that, I didn't see the point in carrying some sort of grudge.

    I stopped disliking them as much after they hired Chuck Pagano.

    I don't understand the whole "Sins of the Father" meme that some folks harbor.

    Junior is NOTHING like his Dad.

    A slimy drug addict who grew up in Baltimore, knows the fans' wild enthusiasm for the Colts, yet refuses to support severing the records. Jimmy allegedly wanted to extort multi-millions from Modell for the Colts name & colors -- remember the delay in ordering the purple seats at the Ravens Stadium at Camden Yards, while discussions were ongoing.

    Y'all can forgive Irsay Junior if you want. I don't.

    DITTO! And come-on guys, where's the determination and staying-power??

    I still hate everything New York from the 1969 Jets-Mets fiasco! But then I'll admit it; I've always had a bit of a bad attitude!
