I think it's a sign of respect when two franchises from the same city help each other out in times like this. I remember on a few occasions the Pittsburgh franchises helped the other out in terms of scheduling. I remember the Pirates were willing to move up the time of their games from night to afternoon to accommodate a Penguins playoff game, and/or a Steelers preseason game. (Can't think of the exact year off the top of my head, but I remember it has been done)

To me it's just a shame that this conflict is greater than that. Why can't the O's play a doubleheader on that Friday?

Personally I would like to see any team that wins the Super Bowl be able to enjoy all the media, festivities, events for their fans, etc. before the season starts, all culminating with the Opening Night game. It's part of the championship experience. I think it's going to be very unfortunate for the Ravens if they open on the road. They will lose out on the tradition the NFL has had in place for about 10 years now. Hate Baltimore or not, it's not fair to them, IMO.
Completely agree, sucks for their fan base who would have gone to the game too

If this is the case and the Ravens do end up opening on the road, it's going to be a shame. IMO they really haven't fully investigated the options. Wednesday is certainly an option. The game last year between the NY Giants and Cowboys was on Wednesday night because the President was speaking on Thursday. I agree it would not make a big deal by moving it to Wednesday.

Also, why not Tuesday? I know that's early in the week, but it would alleviate all the issues that Wed and Thur present. I would suggest Monday and/or the Sunday before, but that is college football opening weekend.
