No Compromise: Ravens To Open Season On The Road After Orioles Scheduling Conflict
Published March 25, 2013
MLB STANDS ITS GROUND: ESPN’s John Saunders said of the Ravens opening on the road, "The National Football League is the most powerful sports organization in the world, but it can’t mess with a pitching rotation. Commissioners Roger Goodell and Bud Selig went head-to-head on this one, but football struck out this time” (“The Sports Reporters,” ESPN, 3/24). PRO FOOTBALL TALK's Darin Gantt wrote MLB "didn't blink" (PROFOOTBALLTALK.com, 3/22). The N.Y. Times' Judy Battista wrote on her Twitter feed, "Ravens opening on the road is the rare case of the NFL not getting what it wants. This should be interesting."
