NFL Places Ravens Signage Around Denver: What You Can Do About It

Some fans in Denver are in an uproar over the NFL placing Baltimore Ravens signage around the city and at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Here's what you can do about it.


You've probably noticed Baltimore Ravens signage around town this week. That's because the NFL promotes both teams in the season opener and technically, this is Baltimore's post-Super Bowl victory party.

The Denver Broncos explained to fans on Monday through Twitter why the signage has been posted.

After the Broncos tweeted, the league's PR man, Brian McCarthy, did some additional damage control.

Keep in mind that the team did not ask for this and there's nothing they can really do about it.

But frankly, it's appalling to see posters of Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco in downtown Denver, especially after the way Denver's season ended in January.

There is something you can do. You can contact local officials and complain about the inappropriate signage in downtown Denver and respectfully ask that it be removed.
