    Re: What was Harbaugh doing after game ended?

    I know Harb is not a perfect coach by any stretch and he surely has his warts. But damn if he doesn't seem to really have a pulse on this city and fan base. For all the good that Billick did here sometimes he came off like he was kind of above the fans what with his 100 dollar words and sometimes dismissive attitude toward us. (although he will always be cool with me for standing up for Ray the way he did at SB35) When it comes to the fans Harb just gets it.

    And its also nice to see us showing out strong on the road now too. I agree with others that I doubt they are bandwagoners..... we just don't have the players and city for that kind of thing. But to me that makes it that much better.... Ravens Nation is AUTHENTIC.
    They hate us..... but they want to BE us. (.... or at least poach all our players/coaches/FO people!)

    Way to go Roost 610!

    I don't claim to know everybody of course, but I know an awful lot of Ravens Fans from the Roosts, the Nests, the OC convention, and the stadium in general from the Cheers and so forth. Everytime I travel I see these good folks left and right lol! Baltimore travels well Hon, and there are other groups of Ravens Fans in a growing number of towns now like TB, Atlanta and NYC.

    I've met Coach Harbaugh and I think he's out to make every Fan feel like they're part of the team.

    I've attempted to go to an away game every year for the last 10. I've missed a few years due to money issues, but I've been to Houston, Nashville, Jacksonville, Charlotte, DC and both Super Bowls in Tampa and New Orleans. (The SB was this year's road trip.)

    My goal is to watch a Ravens game in every NFL stadium (needless to say, Oakland and Philly are last on the list).

    So, from my own experience, I believe probably about 80 - 85% of the Ravens fans you see at other stadiums are from the Baltimore area. In places where there is a large fan club presence - LA, Colorado and South FL, the numbers may be closer to 70 -75%.

    I was at the game yesterday. Section 426, end zone upper deck. It was my first ever Ravens game.

    Our section had a good share of Ravens fans, although Dolphins fans still held a majority.

    The Ravens side of the field, however? Easily 70-75% purple. The crowd came off pretty loud on D in the 4th quarter. 7 Nation Army was echoing strong walking out of the stadium.

    Dolphins fans were overwhelmingly pretty cool. The only instance of "hostility" I experienced (putting it mildly) was a rather well-endowed and certainly inebriated woman wearing a Dolphins tee who insisted on saying "Go Dolphins" in a pouty type voice and pointing to her shirt whenever she walked by. My guess was she was trying to be intimidating but it came off sort of hot. I wanted to say it might have been an act of flirting but she was accompanied by her roiding boyfriend/husband so I choose not to react. Not going to pick a fight on that one.

    Don't know how many of the Ravens fans were travelers vs. transplants (I'm in the latter category; hence this being my first ever Ravens game). The thing is the Florida games are always an easy excuse for fans to take a Florida vacation so I'm sure there were a lot of people coming in from Baltimore.

    All in all, a good experience. Would have loved to see at least one really sweet F-Bomb from Joe, but I'll gladly take the win.

    I was in Sect 419 with my sister and nieces(who are S Fl transplants from Carney) and the majority of our section traveled from MD. We bought our tix directly from the Dolphins on their website. One S Fl write estimated the crowd as half Raven.

    I do not consider the European fans who post here bandwagoners. Most of you guys have been here for years, through thick and then, and many of you travel to charm city to visit in person. It would be great for you guys to get a Ravens away game. Maybe next year, since the NFL screwed the Ravens out of the opening night game, they may play three over there next year, and Bisciotti seems to be pushing it.

    Anyway I always considered you guys honorary Baltimoreans anyway.

    Cheers and Slainte.

    Quoted from this Wiki article:

    "The history of the Germans in Baltimore began in the 17th century. During the 1800s, the Port of Baltimore was the second-leading port of entry for immigrants, after Ellis Island in New York City."

    I had remembered that Baltimore was a huge point of immigration from the old world... so I suppose we could say that fans from Europe should naturally root for Baltimore, historical ties and all.

    I can't ignore the New Yorkers. That's where my Grandparents landed.

    That's cool. Actually my mom's side of the family is from NY state.

    I was just trying to pre-empt the NY arguement of my very tenuous historical linkage...

    ...Considering Miami's a destination city NFL fans usually pick the Dolphins game as an ideal road trip to attend. And that doesn't factor in the transplant South Floridians, who usually keep their allegiances to the team they grew up cheering for, whether is the Patriots, Jets, Steelers, Cowboys, etc.

    But Sunday's game was BY FAR the best Sun-Life Stadium takeover I've personally witnessed in my seven seasons covering the Dolphins.
    Good job roadies...
