Jets' Rex Ryan Not Happy With Resolution Of Ravens-Orioles Scheduling Conflict
Published April 19, 2013
NOT AN EVEN PLAYING FIELD: SI’s Peter King said he spoke with ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian about the situation, and Kurkjian told him that if Orioles manager Buck Showalter “was ever even asked by anybody in the organization about this, as much as he loves the Ravens, which he does, he would have viewed this as a way of putting the Orioles at a competitive disadvantage." Under that set-up, Showalter "never would have agreed to it” ("The Dan Patrick Show," 4/19).
LOOKING TOWARD THE FALL: In Baltimore, Jeff Zrebiec notes the Ravens "won’t get their season-opening home game," but they "will play four prime-time games, including a Thanksgiving night showdown at home" against the Steelers. Their schedule is "highlighted" by the matchup versus the Broncos. The team's two primetime road games will "be an opener in Denver and a matchup with the Detroit Lions before a Monday Night Football audience on Dec. 16 at Ford Field" (Baltimore SUN, 4/19).
