    The Ravens team president Dick Cass wrote a 656 word letter to the fans about all the no shows at the Ravens games. He said they were more noticeable this year and he attributes to the Ravens one time protest in London, England. He has met with some fans who had written him, trying to get them back to the park.
    Simple answer, have your players be respectful and show some class.

    An excerpt from the letter.

    “We had the poor showing in London, complicated by the kneeling of a dozen players during the National Anthem. That became an emotional and divisive issue. We know that hurt some of you. Others saw it differently and welcomed the dialogue that followed. Others bluntly told us to keep statements and protests out of the game. There are some of you who have stayed away from our games.

    We have had significant numbers of no-shows in the past when our play on the field has not met the high standard we and you have set for the Ravens. But this year has been different. The numbers are higher, and it is noticeable. There are a number of reasons for the no-shows, but surely the one-time protest in London has been a factor.”


    It wasn’t a “one-time kneel” in London. A clip of their black asses kneeling 5 seconds prior to the anthem and hearing loud boos in their home stadium...
