That is awful, as well as the grammar, lol. I could see this from Baltimore fans, but Colts??

However misguided you are about Baltimore, I pretty much agree with everything else you said. There are idiots everywhere.
He's probably basing that on the numerous reports and studies, all within the last 2 or 3 years up to the present, that says Baltimore has one of the highest, if not THE highest, big city violent crime rate in the entire U.S.
So, while i don't hate Baltimore, i certainly understand why one would think that immediately.

I live just outside of Baltimore myself and have completely stopped going to Baltimore/Steeler games for this reason alone. I haven't been to a game here in 3 years because every single time I went, I would have some type of altercation, physical or otherwise. Even when a lot of the people I am with are Ravens fans. It gets ridiculous.

People need to step back and realize this is a friggin GAME, not gang colors.

I'm a die hard Steelers fan, but not literally.

Well said. Especially when fans have no stock in the outcome of the game whatsoever, other than their $100 ticket, $100 jersey, and 7 $12 beers. They have no effect on the game whatsoever, but far too many fans act as if they play on the team.

Some fans take the game way too personally. I mean I hate the Pats and Ravens as much as the next person but attack someone for wearing their jersey or hat? No way in hell would I do that. I agree about Ravens fans though I think they're a lot of bark when it comes to it. I go to Ocean City, Maryland a lot and from what my cousin who lives there tells me they get a ton of tourists from the Pittsburgh area and I on occassion will wear my Steelers shirt or hat on the Boardwalk and I get shouted at. I was with my kid brother when it happened one time and he said he was going to shout back at them. Told him not to since the last thing I wanted was a fight over football. Besides I let our team's results over their team's do the talking most of the time. Ravens fans though really are a jealous bunch in my observation.

This type of behavior is shocking though, prayers go out to the fan and his family, and hopefully the police can find the jackass who did it.
eh. I went to the Sunday night game in Indy and we went to a bar early to watch the 1pm games and not a word was said to any of us. We went to a bar/restaurant pregame and no problems and then nothing at the game either. I would say of the 10 or so away venues I've been to Indy was the most tame of them all. I've seen our fans harrass visiting fans in Pittsburgh far worse than anything I saw in Indy. In fact, I didn't see one single incident at all.

Baltimore fans for the most part are ok, but there are the usual Baltimorons!! And yes, I live in Maryland so I do see it all the time!!!
