You stole the heart and soul of the city and we were denied our history, why would we be bitter? And I fixed your obvious typo, someone from Baltimore is a Baltimorean.
Heart and soul of the city? Please. And WE (the fans) did not move the franchise, the A**HOLE of an owner at the time (who is dead now) was the one who did it, though in his defense, the city of Baltimore WAS trying to steal his property. I guess the people of Chicago and St. Louis should bear a grudge against Arizona, and the people of Los Angeles should bear a grudge against St. Louis in your opinion then, huh? After all, the Cardinals moved (TWICE!) and kept their colors and logo, and so did the Rams. You don't hear those people b****ing about it 20+ years later, though. Nope, only the bitter Baltimorons (and no, that wasn't a typo) bear a grudge for over 23 years and counting. You all have cried enough to put the Mississippi to shame, so here's a novel concept: build yourself a bridge and GET OVER IT! You have a franchise (that you stole from another city, but that's not hypocritical at all) that has won a championship, and if you REALLY wanted it badly enough, you could have had the Colts colors and logo back when the Browns franchise moved to Baltimore, but when push came to shove, apparently a few million was too much to pay for the Colts logo, colors, and history, despite the hundreds of millions the city of Baltimore put into getting a new franchise, so I guess it wasn't all that important to you guys after all, was it?
The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.
If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.
