The NFL regular season is just days away, but we already have a minor controversy of sorts brewing. Thanks to the Orioles playing a home game the Ravens are opening the season on the road in Denver. In advance of the game the league is putting up a lot of signs--featuring Joe Flacco. You know; the QB for the other team. Broncos fans have let the NFL know they are not real happy about it and have even created a petition asking the NFL to take the darn things down (no word on whether they are even thinking about it). I understand. What Broncos fan is going to want to see pictures of the enemy up all over town for over a week prior to kickoff? The answer to that is easy--none! The NFL has to know that fans are not going to like it, and that some will take  matters into their own hands rather than wait and see if the league is going to do anything Like this guy, a local radio host by the name of Vic Lombardi. I can't say I blame him for doing it, but
PLAYERS: Joe Flacco
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens
