    Re: What was Harbaugh doing after game ended?



    I don't travel to root for the Ravens myself (can't afford the time & expense). But I am curious where most of those fans come from. On the TV broadcasts you can clearly hear them yell "Leach!" when Vonta catches a pass. And it doesn't seem to matter what part of the country the Ravens play.

    Do they actually travel from the Baltimore area or are they local transplanted fans who buy tickets for when the Ravens are in town? I cannot imagine them being 'bandwagon' fans they picked up since Febuary.

    A couple years ago, i went on an away trip to Miami and there were thousands of Ravens fans that flew down to Miami. Just read the Miami Herald where the reporter stated that about 20,000 Ravens fans were at the game!

    Looked like it must have been a pretty easy ticket. There must have been 15,000 fans disguised as empty seats. There was lots of purple, and you could hear them right from the opening kickoff.
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    A few people from Roost 610 here in Houston went to the game.

    Tampa has a pretty large fan group as well. I bet a lot of them made the trip.

    I did a rewind on the DVR & he said something to the effect of "let's do a lap & thank the fans". In the moment I was confused, so re-watched it a couple times.

    We definitely got the classier Harbaugh!

    Watched the game on Sky sports, and they had a text message read where the person asked the commentators if the Dolphins were celebrating Halloween early by having their fans dress up as empty seats! LMAO!!

    Judging by the number of fans attired in purple at the airports, most Ravens road games support comes from the Baltimore area. Moreso at the three Florida cities, New Orl\eans, Nashville, Charlotte, and, of course, Landover.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    I try to go to a couple road games a year. The coach always seems to do this when we win. Suggs has always joined him when I have gone to the games. I believe most of these folks come from Baltimore. I think the cheap SW and AirTran flights help, also a lot of people drive to games . A couple of years ago the Charlotte game looked like a home game. Far more Ravens fans in town, on the road, at the tailgates, and in the stands.

    I think the Florida games attract a lot of folks because of the plentiful (and therefore cheap)tickets.

    I always thought almost all Ravens fans have some connection to Baltimore. Seems obvious, but when you think about the fact we are a fairly young team, how we got the team, and a lot of folks thoughts on Ray (I could not believe what some of the Buffalo fans were saying about him last week . Seems even worse now that he is an announcer) we have far fewer bandwagon fans then the more established teams.

    Apart from of course the British fans. I've never even been to Baltimore, I just love the team for what it stands for, plus the fan base is so great for a small market team.

    what does that have to do with anything? Probably not, because I'm sure he'd want to get his team back in the locker room to do his coach thing and get their mind set right. But if you traveled to see the Ravens and they lost, would you go down to the first row of the stadium and hang out to try to get the players to say hi to you? I'd be ready to get the hell out of there, personally.

    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    I think some of the fans may have been from the suite holders road trip plus it is South Beach. Raven fans travel, so them taking over the stadium was not a surprise. Great job to those who went. It made a difference IMO, that and Suggs putting on the Super Man cape.

    He did the same thing here in Houston a few years ago.

    I noticed at the beginning of the game that it was far from a sellout and there were an awful lot of Ravens jerseys out there. Can't imagine M&T being that empty.

    This and this.

    It has been a pet peeve of mine for a while now. I get somewhat upset when you constantly hear about the Steeler fans, the "best traveling fans in the NFL." When in reality, many of those fans that show in in Atlanta, FedEx, Dallas etc. do not live in Pittsburgh. Many are transplants, and that is fine, if I moved to another city, I would continue to support the Ravens. The fact that we are now 40 years from Pittsburgh glory years of the 70s, I would surmise that a large portion of their fanbase has zero connection to Pittsburgh.

    Again, they've earned that fanbase based on their decades of winning, but don't talk to me about them "traveling".

    The Ravens have probably grown their out-of-market fanbase by about 100% in the last 2 years...but I still think that 80% of their fans live within 3 hours of Baltimore. So when they do take-over visiting stadiums, it is truly fans "traveling" from Baltimore.
