How two Germans almost bought Ravens’ stadium over unpaid water bill

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

A strange story caught our eye late Wednesday night: It appears that an unpaid water bill allowed German investors to briefly claim rights to owning the Baltimore Ravens’ football home, M&T Bank Stadium. The $5,200 bill was in arrears, which allowed the real-estate investors to purchase the lien on the stadium on Monday (as well as the Baltimore Orioles’ Camden Yards) and — for a few nervous hours — it appeared they might have the right to claim ownership of both prized buildings if the debts remain unpaid, according to the Wall Street Journal (subscription required). Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker almost had his team’s stadium bought by German investors, except for a government error.

NFL owners to vote on improving injured reserve

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

At the NFL owners meetings next week in Chicago, owners will vote on a rule which will allow a second player to come off of injured reserve. Since 2012, the NFL adopted an injured reserve rule that allows players to come off of the list after eight weeks. And now the league is looking to give one more player per roster a chance to save their season. With a team like the Baltimore Ravens, which has seen their players sent to injured reserve 36 times over the last two seasons, this rule could help them immensely. It will be interesting to see where the NFL goes in the future as it relates to roster changes. With each team required to have 53 players on their roster when the regular season begins,

Why Tom Brady Has a Chip on His Shoulder
