it's great that the old colts and new ravens are
getting together for some old stories and autographs.

eventhough the colts moved from baltimore, the fans
will always have fond memories of a team who
was a deep part of the blue collar community.

the old colts often had a brew in the local bars and the
colts corrals of the old days were die hard
football and baltimore fans....

ah yes the hawk, jimmy orr in the left side of end zone,
curtis decking a fan, the mad stork running wild...
and one more time, unitas to berry on a beautiful
hook pattern......

$1250 to get in and another $85 for Ray Lewis" autograph. What a rip off. As much as I still love the old Colts and like the Ravens. That's a bunch of BS to that Art Donovan and Raymond Berry can't sign because They already went to an autograph signing. Who made these selfish rules up anyway? You just denied the fans an oppurtunity to get their favorite players autographs and to shake hands with pro football legends. this has NFL wriiten all over it. NFL=No Fun aLlowed!

This is just another event to fleece the fans and their pockets.

Bisciotti and the NFL are already doing a good job with their ticket prices and the players whining how they don't make enough money. Hey Ray, come on out of your mansion and work a real job. Try being a city cop, or a school teacher See how much you'd dance then...and you'd have a REAL reason to whine about your salary...

I've had it with these spoiled, pampered millionare athletes and the billionaire owners..

If fans want to participate in the autograph party I think it is great. I wish I was pocketing the admission money. Great Idea on how to make a few dollars. The Dinner Profit is also a big money maker. This type of thinking helps the economy. Do not begrudge those who come up with these great ideas. If you can not afford to go do not gripe about Those making the money will spend it and all is well.

"The autograph show tomorrow, at the Towson Center, has a $13 cover charge ($7 for children). There's also a fee for each player's autograph, ranging from $10 (the norm) to $85 for Ray Lewis'".

It's $1250 for the VIP dinner at Ruth Chris'...

I wouldn't pay $85 to a millionaire for his autograph, he should be paying us to come see him after last year.

And how big is that portion of the signing fees goes to Fourth & Goal?
All of it should !!!

I can't imagine paying for an autograph from an overpaid, underperforming millionaire. This is a perfect example of what is wrong with professional sports in the US.
