TWIN BEAKS: RAVENS SCULPTURE UNLIKELY THIS YEAR AT STADIUM
Published March 27, 1998
Ravens Exec VP David Modell said yesterday that "he doubts a 40-foot raven sculpture will be perched atop the club's new stadium when it opens this fall," according to Vito Stellino of the Baltimore SUN. The proposed sculpture "has become a point of dispute" between the team and MD Stadium Authority Chair John Moag, who believes it would be a signature look for blimp TV shots during games. Modell said that he's not against the idea, but other fan amenities are more important. The Ravens "have the call because funds for the sculpture aren't in the stadium authority's budget." Moag's original projected cost was $250,000, but Modell believes that it will cost $500,000. Meanwhile, Modell said that the stadium's brick exterior will be a signature in itself, without the sculpture (Baltimore SUN, 3/27).
