Pretty tame, but Baltimore’s never really had a problem after Ravens’ games (wins or losses), so not unexpected.

At a 7-Eleven at Lombard and Broadway in Fells Point, looters took advantage of the celebrations, rushed in, grabbed what they could and ran. Managers say about 100 people took part in looting the store. The entire event lasted about 3 minutes. Police mounted units rushed to the scene and quickly helped to disperse the looters.

Obama voters or Beyonce fans?

Congratulations to the Ravens! I am so proud of that team. They were the underdogs all season long. I know that the Naval Academy was in full celebration today with lots of high fives. It is wonderful to see a deserving team win. They are my adopted team since I am originally from Pennsylvania.

If Obama had a son he’d look like Ray Lewis

The NFL is really looking forward to a Detroit/Oakland Superbowl one day.

I just saw the report on the local news. Looting and turning over cars. I didn’t Baltimore was immune from those types, the good liberals they are.

They are the Cleveland Browns of old, transplanted by Art Modell. The REAL Baltimore team, the Colts, is now in Indy......

I remember Fells Point and Inner Harbor areas from 10-15yrs ago, as nice places to visit w/ my girlfriend, have dinner and walk around until well after dark, with no problems. Guess things have changed a bit, since then. These days, no CCW; I don’t go there.

We are well on our way to becoming a modern day version of the Roman Empire.

Arrogant, wealthy, corrupt out of touch senators.

A tyrannical, immature, simpleton as Emporer who labors with delusions of grandeur and sees himself as a near diety.

Mainstreaming of rampant homosexualism and other forms of sexual perversion.

Arena games to keep the multitudes occupied while their leaders plunder the Empire.

A central government that promotes disunity and a growing “Balkanization” of the population to keep the citizenry distracted with internal bickering and resent of each other, creating loss of unity and common purpose.

A widespread, competent, powerful military being weakened and dismantled by a corrupt and venal leadership, determined to use the military to pursue their own agendas.

If you really wanna go back, when Tommy D’Alesandro II was Mayor of Baltimore, raising his little Nancy and little Tommy there, none of Holder’s peeps went into Fells Point unless they had a specific job to do (clean the house, mow the lawn) or they did not come out alive.

I did read that he ran a “really right ship”, back then. Rizzo’s Philly was a lot tamer, when he ran the place, in the 70s/80s. The mob usually kept better lids on their ruled domains, Detroit, Oakland et al excepted.

I live in Maryland and my husband works in downtown Baltimore. It was tame... this report is more over the top then what happened. There were block parties. There was a lot of dancing and celebrating. Not sure why there are some freepers that thought Baltimore would be burned down but it didn’t and it hasn’t. Does Baltimore have its very rough areas? Sure.. name one major city that doesn’t. That being said... thousands are expected on Tuesday for a rally and parade to celebrate the Ravens. Say what you want about the Ravens, Biggirl... but Baltimore fans are loyal.

Seriously? There are still some people who don't know the real story behind that move? The City of Baltimore initiated Eminent Domain proceedings against the Colts. They were going to steal the man's half-billion-dollar enterprise, simply for popularity and votes. Most of us can't move our property when the government comes to take it... but he could move that asset... and so he did.

Anyone on a conservative forum should understand this clearly. I'm sorry if you have some emotional boo-boo's to nurse, but it's been 3 decades. (With more titles for the Ravens in their 17 years than for the Colts in their 29 years in Indy.) Pull up your big girl panties and get over it.

I’m not convinced our cities wouldn’t be better off with the old timey mob running them.

You get over it Bucko.........I know perfectly well the back story — reread my comment, it was a light hearted reference to the “real” Baltimore team.

Which is what I consider the Ravens.

Bottom line jackass Irsay left in the middle of the night with no prior announcement to do so. He WAS a jackass. Team didn’t like him and his son was embarrassed - see the SI article a few years back.

Anyone wanting to compare that to the Browns is clueless or just resentful.

Quit the garbage. Any problems here were common criminal issues and NOT generalized rioting.

In “some ways”, they were a lot better than what we have now. In many ways, actually.
