How many Jewish guys are on the Ravens anyway?  Jews aren't the most athletic bunch.

I think it's an issue with Robert Kraft and the Patriots.  Ravens are supposed to play the Patriots and he's Jewish.

I also think it's just an excuse.  They would still be playing on Rosh Hashanna on Thursday!

I am sure they dont' care about the players being jewish or an owner being jewish.  They care about that if they move it to wednesday they would lose 4 million viewers.  if they move it to wednesday and it is the first night of a big jewish holiday they will lose 6 million viewers.  They can just keep the game on Thursday and play it somewhere else and keep the tv folks are happy.

So the only one that loses are the people of Baltimore.

Why can't the Ravens open on Sunday night?  I just don't understand.  who cares about Thursday?  Not this Baltimore fan.

Well because there is an advantage to opening on Thursday as you get an extra 3 days rest before you next game.  Better to be opening on the road on thursday and playing the game on the road then Sunday night.  I can gurantee you though the Orioles game won't have much of an attendance figure.

Oh and Brian Roberts was on the radio this morning and he said the players were never asked their opinion about moving the game and he didn't even know about it until yesterday.  He said it is no big deal as they do day games after night games all the time.

How would he know, he hasn't played in like 4 years...

Anyhow, there isn't a single day game after a night game with travel on any MLB teams schedule.  They do not do it "all the time"....

i'm sorry, i'm new to this noise, but: is it impossible for the ravens and the O's to play on the same night?  are the logistics more than the stadium area can handle?  or is it some other issue i'm missing?

Funny, but no.  It's been in the CBA for years....
