Let’s say you’re a Broncos fan – you’re pumped to get the season started at Mile High and get revenge against the Super Bowl Champion Ravens on your field. The same Ravens that sent you packing on a few miraculous plays in the playoffs last season – against the same Joe Flacco that went HAM on your turf. Would you want his big pretty smile blown up and hung on your stadium? No, no you wouldn’t. That’s why Broncos fans are petitioning the NFL for promoting Joe Flacco and the Ravens on their home stadium. (Photo: Change.org) You see, the NFL glorifies both teams on it’s opening kickoff promotion, setting the scene for a great season, but usually the defending champs are opening the season at home. In this instance, because the Jackwagon Orioles couldn’t move one of their 162 games, (even though they reschedule them because of a little rain, pansies.) the NFL had to move it’s opening kickoff to Denver. Therefor Denver fans have to deal with the cross promotion. Instead of Peyton Manning being highlighted, it’s the Super Bowl MVP. So, what do Bronco fans do? THEY PUT UP SIGNS AND RALLY DEMANDING TEBOW TO BE THE STARTER! They file a petition, demanding the NFL remove the Joe Flacco Banner! Via Change.org: To: Roger Goodell, @nflcommish, National Football League Take the Joe Flacco signage off my Mile High Stadium! Broncos Nation will not endure this detestable and audacious act. Who in their right mind thought that we would just let this fly?! We stand united against your unbearable Joe Flacco signage. Sincerely, (Your name) I doubt the requested change will happen, but it’s worth a shot. It’s a kick in the groin. Sort of like hanging a banner of the Brady tuck rule fumble  on O.Co coliseum. As a Raiders fan, I wouldn’t be too happy either. Oh, I also heard Rahim Moore tried to defend the banner hanging, but he was just short.   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Editor-in-Chief – Justin Arbogast @NFLGuy_SK The post Broncos fans petition NFL to remove giant Joe Flacco sign at Mile High Stadium appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE - Presented by Sports-Kings.

  • Had Peyton Manning not been beaten by joe Flacco in Denver, there wouldn't be Flacco billboards. Quit whining Denver- you have the season opening game, a game that belongs in Baltimore. Quit your whining and go back and stop Peyton from throwing that pick to Corey Graham and maybe there wouldn't be Flacco billboards in your city.
