RAVENS SET TO BECOME THE NEW PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS?
Published May 29, 1996
The Ravens have "tentatively" selected a uniform design that incorporates purple and white jerseys, black helmets and black pants, according to the Baltimore SUN. Jon Morgan reports the helmet will have a shield-like logo on the side and two "distinctive" patches -- one featuring a streaking raven landing claw first on a football and the other containing the colors of the MD state flag -- are being considered for the front pocket and hip areas. The final design, which still needs the approval of owner Art Modell, will be unveiled June 5 (Baltimore SUN, 5/25). NOT SO FAST: The Ravens PSL policy is criticized by the SUN's Vito Stellino and John Steadman. Stellino writes the "convoluted, two-step selling process is only going to confuse the fans," as fans buying tickets won't know what the final PSL fee will be. Steadman compares PSLs to "white-collar crime" (Baltimore SUN, 5/26).
