During the first half of Super Bowl XLVII, the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers were, in nice terms, playing a little chippy. After a few plays, a number of players, on both sides of the ball, were seen getting in one another’s face. One of the more interesting confrontations between the two teams came towards the end of the first half when both teams got into a pushing and shoving match near the sidelines.
The moment was barely shown on live television and the CBS crew chose to pan the camera away from the incident. During the altercation, Baltimore Ravens corner Cary Williams shoved a nearby official. Williams did not receive a flag, or was ejected from the game.
While talking to The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., Williams spoke about the incident and said he did not even realize he was pushing an official.
“It was in the moment, man,” Williams said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “It was one of those situations where you let your emotions get the best of you. As far as I’m concerned, I remember my helmet getting ripped off by No. 49 or whatever, and I just reacted. I didn’t see the ref; I didn’t realize he was there. I just pushed whoever to try to get to him.
“I just think that with the Baltimore Ravens, I feel like we play aggressively but we play between the whistles. There was a lot of things that was going on outside of the whistles or whatever, and it was frustrating. But at the end of the day, it happened. The ref saw that I wasn’t trying to intentionally get him or hurt him or harm him in any way, and I think he played it the right way. He made the right call, he made the right decision.”
“The league hasn’t contacted me,” Williams said. “I don’t know if I need to contact them or whatever, but it’s a situation . . . and I just gotta deal with that. So whenever it comes, I gotta cross that bridge when we get there.”

'A FUN PARTY'
Joe Flacco was on the Kelly & Michael Show this morning, making the usual post Super Bowl media stops. What was initially a dull, standard talk show interview took an interesting twist when Flacco’s height (6’6″) came up. Kelly Ripa got a little aroused. Then she asked how tall Flacco’s wife was. Joe informed us that she was about 5′, pretty close to being a legal...

Check out these crazy Baltimore Ravens fans crawling over the fence at M&T Bank Stadium during the Super Bowl parade. You would figure the Ravens staff would have a little better security for this type of event. Heck, you would feel like they would have better security to protect people from getting into their stadium on a regular day. The video is below of the crazy fans...
Joe Flacco had a pretty interesting plan for the final play of the Super Bowl.
Problem is, had he needed to carry out his plan it might have turned into the most infamous play in Super Bowl history, for all the wrong reasons.
The Baltimore Ravens were about to make a free kick with four seconds left. The Ravens had just taken an intentional safety complete with some egregious holding...
Most championship celebrations get filled up but not to capacity. Tuesday the Ravens celebrated their Super Bowl win with a parade and a final stop at M&T Bank stadium.
Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said he expected about 30,000 fans to show up. By the time the team arrived to the stadium, it was filled to capacity like a game was about to be played.
Police and Stadium officials...
Ravens owner Joe Bisciotti told reporters on Thursday that they offered QB Joe Flacco a ”top-5 contract” last summer, per Albert Breer.
If true, it would make Flacco’s decision to play out the final season of his contract all the more remarkable.
Flacco, 28, will definitely secure a $100 million contract at some point, but it will be interesting to see just how much guaranteed...
I can understand these Baltimore Ravens fans exuberance over their team winning the Super Bowl, but this is completely idiotic. Baltimore is not exactly a sports town, winning two Super Bowls in 17 years, and the Orioles haven’t won a World Series since 1983, so their excitement is not surprising.These two fans took it to the extreme with their drunken actions and hopefully both...
An alternate title for this post could have been "Future Darwin Award Contestant' since this woman is clearly not the brightest person in the world.
In a day and age where fan violence is as common as a fine from Roger Goodell you would think that people would start to wise up some. Now I'm not saying that you can't express yourself or wear whatever you want when...
Despite supposedly retiring, you already knew that there was just no way that you would no longer see Ray Lewis. He’s already reportedly going to be on your television every week during football season on ESPN.
And now, Ravens fans will have the opportunity to see Lewis at every home game. But unlike years past, Lewis will be in statue form because the Ravens plan to build a statue...
The NFL season came to a close with John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens raising another Vince Lombardi Trophy after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in New Orleans.
If you’re having football withdrawals, NFL fans can now relive the season through animation. Austin Madison has been an animator on such hit Pixar films as Ratatouille, Up and Brave. The Pixar animator...
