Seriously, when was the last time the NFL scheduled a Ravens Broncos game in Denver? Feels like its been almost a decade since we hosted Baltimore. And I hate going there to play.

LOL OOooops! Beer failed me. Week 15 that is. Well now that I have your attention, who is going to this game? A buddy and I are, but I would definitely like to hang with other Broncos fans. We need to stick together for this hated away game.

Agreed, but I'm just happy to go to a game. Hopefully we get a win there for once!

Baltimore may not have a defense left by then. They lose guys left and right. But if Suggs can come back they will still be dangerous.

Last time I went there for a Broncos game I was looking for the Broncos bus, and wondered through the vast majority of Bmore fans tailgating. They didnt take kindly to opposing fans, oh yeah, and the neighborhoods nearby are not exactly the most reputable.

I went there a couple of weeks ago and it seemed that if you aren't in the "in" crowd then you're not part of the group. Since when are Broncos fans snobby? Only in DC... :loopy:

You would be better off asking that on a Ravens board but that is going to be one tough ticket.

It'll be tough for sure, especially if our McGahee-less run game has proven to be impotent. But if our defense is still healthy by then (knock on wood) we have a great chance to shut down Ernie Flacco and squeak out a win.

Check the Baltimore Craigslist for tickets. I've had good luck with private sellers in 2009, 2010, and this year.

We'll be out bright and early in the Staples/Fastenal lot across Russell Street from the stadium with some Ratbirds fans.

PM me for details/cell if anyone wants to stop by and throw back a few.

I have heard that counterfeit tickets are rising as the season heats up.

The only ones that are guaranteed are one sold though the NFL sites.

With the advent of high end photo copiers and computers lots of folks are getting burnt and in some cases arrested for trying to use those tickets.

Know you source.

Let me add I went to preseason game in DAL when the broncos played there some years ago. I bought mine through there web site paid aretty penny for them as I was walking from the parking lot some guy was hawking tickets heard the price ( tought i should have done this as they were about 20 less than I paid ) as I walked by him and some folks bought them. They were about four rows in front of where I was setting. I saw the couple come in and be seated, about ten minutes later another two people got into an arguement about the seats, an usher was called and then the police took both couples away. One in cuffs then another couple set down about 15 minutes later rinse and repeat.

Ultimately another guy came in and got them ejected as he had the real tickets. Low and behold about five minutes before the game the guy that was selling them in the parking lot joined him he was loaded with snack food and beers.

Good way to afford stadium food.

I think with Lewis coming back as the spiritual leader they could play better than most think.

It is yet another east coast road Trip.. Something we have struggled with overthe years and although we seem to have broken the streak of losing. Not sure I'm quite ready to BELIEVE it will not be back in BAL. a place we never seem to play well or win.

But one can hope.

I've been there several times over the last 10 years for Colts games. I went both with and without a Colts Jersey.

Contrary to common sentiment, I never had a problem.
- Maybe I was lucky?
- I know I didn't go in like an a'hole, looking for trouble. I was courteous, still cheered for the Colts, and had a good time.
- Lower level seats are always a plus. The higher you go, the drunker fans get. The drunker they get, the more chance for trouble.
- Best not too spend much time solo. The buddy system sounds a little gay, but is worth it.
- Drink (if you drink), but never get wasted.
- When the game ends, get out of dodge.

These rules are true at stadium as an away fan. Being a lifelong Colts fan and living in NJ, I have lived my life as the away fan. Jets, Giants, Philly, Baltimore, though mostly Jets. Never had a problem at any stadium.

Went to Balt. two years ago to watch them beat up on the Broncos. Sat high up in the End Zone. No trouble at all though. Just don't egg people on or be obnoxious. Sounds obvious, but some people have a hard time understanding why they are getting beer dumped on them after they just insulted an entire section for 2 plus hours.

Well they should look in the mirror. Last Sunday they were as obnoxious as you can get, but then again that's typical of Baltimore fans who have this inferiority complex about their city when it comes to DC.

I'll be there rooting for Denver Destruction. I dare any of those obnoxious ****s to say a peep after last Sunday. They were dead quiet once Cousins converted the 2 points.

**** 'em. They need to look in the mirror before getting all bent out of shape about opposing teams coming into their precious purple stadium.

I've been to about a dozen away games as a Pats fan. Went to Baltimore for the Sunday night game this year. I'd say the Raven fans are better behaved than most cities fans. Doubt anyone will have a problem.

back in the mid 80's the broncos always had to go to chicago, usually in the middle of winter and we always got our butts whooped. we finally did get a MNF against the mcmahon qb'd and singletary led D in denver and we kicked the awesome chicago D in the butt.
