In my humble opinion, the fans in Baltimore who root for the Ravens can be considered hypocrites.

Here are the facts. In the '80s, the Baltimore Colts moved here to Indianapolis via Mayflower trucks. For almost two decades afterwards, Baltimore Colts fans were all “Waaaaa, we lost our team, Indianapolis can go straight to hell and die!”

The fans of Baltimore even (unofficially) named their CFL team the Colts. Hell-- some people were saying they should just outright steal the name, to hell with copyright and trademark infringement.

Then the Ravens come to town, and the people of Baltimore stop their pathetic bitching and are all about football again.

Never mind the fact that the Ravens themselves are a transplanted team, having just come from Cleveland-- a city that was mourning the loss of their beloved Browns, despite the promise that they would return.

So. The fans of Baltimore bitched and complained for years that Indy stole the Colts. But when Baltimore stole the Browns, they didn't care about the fans in Cleveland whose practically ancient franchise they lost.

Prove me wrong.

I have a feeling there were a slew of coaches that would say the same about stealing signals too. What is amazing is how long this stuff can stay on the down low, especially these days.
