BELTWAY BATTLE: The SUN's Barker wrote the Ravens for years "quietly tried to make the case to the NFL that Baltimore-Washington would function best as a single television market." The Ravens in '10 said that about 12% of their PSL holders "have residences" in DC, Northern Virginia or Montgomery or Prince George's counties in Maryland. Those fans "used to complain that they couldn’t see all of Baltimore's games on TV." The Ravens said that has "been changing." The change "isn't because the TV territories have been shifted." It is because DC TV "has become very Ravens-friendly." But DC "doesn't always like conceding that it's interested in the Ravens." It is "as if some Redskins fans feel they're diluting their allegiance to the home club by following a neighbor." But there is "clearly Ravens interest" in the DC area "and vice-versa" (Baltimore SUN, 5/6).
