    Still on that 40k kick huh? Even in the infant stages of the Ravens, the out of town fans coming to games never came close to being half the stadium.

    But somehow 40,000 Ravens fans are going to invade FedEx when the Skins have a rejuvenated fan base?

    RGIII has the fans excited and now they have a punchers chance at the playoffs. If 5,000 - 7,500 Ravens fans made their way to the game, I'd be impressed.

    You live in Houston, I live here. If you call out of town being 30 miles apart then so be it. You are also not factoring in the numerous Ravens fans in NOVA, PG and Montgomery County. If the Steelers can have 50K like they did in 2008 when the Slurs entered the game 6-2 then why can't the Ravens have nearly that many basically in their back yard? There were over 10K in SD last year and the same if not more this year. BTW once the Giants beat the Slurs on Monday night our fair weather fans to the South will dump their tickets even moreso.

    I love having these discussions with guys like you and Kev. You both are smart but you miss on something that doesn't allow you to expand your already broad horizons. Unfortunately you wouldn't believe me if I told you what it was.

    BTW this is not a shot at you or him at all.

    The deadskins can't even beat us in preseason games, let's wait and see just how good they are playing us in a couple of weeks with RG3. They couldn't get it done vs the Steelers, we are built in a similar way to them, so we'll see.

    You are underestimating Ravens fans greatly here.

    And this is some BS, the deadskins called it quits a few weeks back, and now they beat the Cowboys, and all of a sudden they are a legitamate contender? smh, typical media over hyping teams with their favorites at QB. Watch them get dominated on Monday night.

    It's no where near a rivalry!! The only rival the Redskins has is Dan Snyder. Even the Cowboys fans have moved on to a Giants rivalry over the Redskins. The Redskins are a joke that no one takes seriously. The ONLY thing they have going for them is RGIII

    For 34 of my 40 years on this Earth, I lived in Maryland, having grown up in HoCo and then living in Fells Point for 8 years prior to moving to Houston. I am well aware of where the fans are located and their proximity to the FedEx.

    For one, there was nothing close to 50k worth of Steelers fans for that game. FedEx current capacity, as of 2011, is 85,000. That would mean over half of the people in attendance were Steelers fans and that's nothing close to the actual number of of their fans that were there. A simple look at any of the game day photos proves that one.

    Again, another overestimation. The folks over at The West Wing pegged the Ravens fans attendance at around 5,000. And it appears you're not paying attention to the Skins this year. They have a huge buzz right now and RGIII is drawing folks back to the stadium.

    Except that it is. You really do need to chill with shots like these.

    I call BS on your BS. RGIII has the fans excited again. Read anything in the Washington Post and you can see that much to be true.

    And I never once called them a "legitimate contender". I said they have a punchers chance for the playoffs. Take a look; they are only a game out of the Wild Card hunt .....

    Combine that with RGIII and I don't see fans dumping tickets like they used to. And even if they did, it wouldn't sniff 40,000.

    Just a reminder, the article has been published in What's Up? Annapolis Magazine and is a cover story.

    Tell me what you think about it on Twitter @_JakeRussell. My 1,000th follower will receive a free autographed magazine by me.

    I'm assuming you're No J.K. Rowlings in the writing and literature world here dude.

    I think I'd rather have a copy of the Baltimore Sun sports page autugraphed by Mike Preston.

    The Other Sides Opinion

    Some interesting reading.

    Like this gem..

    "Ravens fans, I can't believe you asked that. They hate DC. The return is only how people from a city with no big companies, famous people or history is bitter over it's neighbor, the capitol of the free world."

    No big companies, famous people or history.

    Too much stuff to list here but the comment alone leads me to believe he's a half breed...Redskin/Steeler.

    I think the guy further down commenting about how we butcher the national anthem should educate the no history guy on where that anthem was written.


    Then there's this

    "I mean really"








    I Mean Really?





    Will Die A Ravens Fan!!

    Re: Ravens-Redskins "Rivalry"

    I read what the other side said about Baltimore losing the Colts and then taking a team from Cleveland and most of those Deadskunks fans don't realize if they go back in their teams history that their team was taken from Boston in 1937 by then owner George Preston Marshall.

    That's great. I probably ran into you because I used to hang out in fells point but I am several years older than you

    Ok you are probably right but with me being there the number was probably around 40K. My bad for overestimating by 10K

    Again, another overestimation. The folks over at The West Wing pegged the Ravens fans attendance at around 5,000. And it appears you're not paying attention to the Skins this year. They have a huge buzz right now and RGIII is drawing folks back to the stadium.

    Wow 5K fans? I call BS on that given I was in attendance and we were roughly 10% of the capacity but aren't we simply splitting hairs at this point? BTW how can I not pay attention to the Slurs? I live in their backyard.

    Except that it is. You really do need to chill with shots like these.

    Go back and read my post again. I complimented you and Kev for being smart with a broad mindset but not as wide and diverse as it could be. If that's a shot then we might as well shut this board. I even said that I was serious. If I didn't think that then I wouldn't say it.
    We obviously are not going to see eye to eye on much of anything. It's cool though.

    Having lived in northern VA for most of the last decade, I can tell you there are quite a few folks wearing purple at Bailey's on Sundays.
