    Baltimore Ravens

    After the controversial relocation of the Colts to Indianapolis, several attempts were made to bring an NFL team back to Baltimore. In 1993, ahead of the 1995 league expansion, the city was considered a favorite, behind only St. Louis, to be granted one of two new franchises. League officials and team owners feared litigation due to conflicts between rival bidding groups if St. Louis was awarded a franchise. In October Charlotte, North Carolina was the first city chosen. Several weeks later, Baltimore's bid for a franchise—dubbed the Baltimore Bombers, in honor of the locally produced Martin B-26 Marauder bomber—had three ownership groups in place and a state financial package which included a proposed $200 million, rent-free stadium and permission to charge up to $80 million in personal seat license fees.Baltimore, however, was unexpectedly passed over in favor of Jacksonville, Florida, despite Jacksonville's minor TV market status and that the city had withdrawn from contention in the summer, only to return with then-Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's urging. Although league officials denied that any city had been favored, it was reported that Tagliabue and his longtime friend Washington Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke had lobbied against Baltimore due to its proximity to Washington, D.C., and that Tagliabue had used the initial committee voting system to prevent the entire league ownership from voting on Baltimore's bid.This led to public outrage and The Baltimore Sun describing Tagliabue as having an "Anybody But Baltimore" policy. Maryland governor William Donald Schaefer said afterward that Tagliabue had led him on, praising Baltimore and the proposed owners while working behind-the-scenes to oppose Baltimore's bid.

      Tuukka Rask speaks on his future and exiting the Toronto bubble

      For whatever reason, Tuukka Rask became a polarizing figure among certain Bruins fans since he took over for Tim Thomas full time in 2013. And some of his detractors didn’t cut him slack when he exited the Toronto bubble during Boston’s first-round series with the Carolina Hurricanes as he attended to a family situation. After some speculation, we now know the specifics of what led Rask to return home, as he recently revealed to Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald. “I got a phone call from my wife, and my daughter was in a state that she needed medical attention and she wasn’t doing well. At that point, I had no choice but to go home. It’s as simple as that,” Rask told Conroy before Shawn Thornton’s annual Putts and Punches charity golf event. “If you get a phone call wherever you are, like I did, it’s a pretty easy decision. What bothered me a little bit was people thinking that I just left because I didn’t like it there. I’m not going to lie to you, [the bubble] was awful. But if I didn’t have a reason to leave, I wouldn’t have left, obviously. There’s that. But my daughter’s fine now, the family”s good, and it made me feel good. When I got home, they were happy to have me home and things got back to normal pretty quickly, so I knew that I made the right decision. It had nothing to do with hockey or the bubble. It was just the fact that I...

      Blues sign Torey Krug; Kevan Miller re-signs with Bruins

      Torey Krug became an unlikely hero during the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup run in 2013. He became a fan-favorite among the Causeway faithful as exemplified by his helmetless, bone-jarring hit on Blues forward Robert Thomas in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final six years later. Well, Thomas and Krug will now be teammates in St. Louis. The now-former Bruin signed a new seven-year contract with an annual cap hit of $6.5 million per season. By comparison, the Bruins reportedly offered Krug the same salary for six years before Don Sweeney took the deal off the table on Friday. Moments after the Krug news surfaced on Twitter, the Bruins confirmed the re-signing of veteran defenseman Kevan Miller. The ex-Vermont Catamount, who’s been plagued by injuries the last two years, returns on a one-year deal with a $1.25 million cap hit. Perhaps Sweeney has another move in mind following Krug’s departure. The sixth-year general manager postponed his original press conference — scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday — to Saturday at 1 p.m. The Bruins reportedly have interest in forwards Taylor Hall and Craig Smith. Hall, a Hart Trophy recipient with the Devils in 2018, played for his third team (Coyotes) since the Oilers selected him with the top overall pick in 2010. Smith, while not as prolific a goal scorer as Hall, quietly became a solid offensive weapon for the Predators, notching 20 goals in five of his nine seasons in the Music City. With a disgruntled fanbase, Sweeney needs to make a big splash. His free...

      Craig Smith signing provides a need, but Bruins still have work to do

      The Bruins were less than 24 hours removed from watching Torey Krug depart for St. Louis. They’ll need to fill that big hole on the left side of the defense either from within the organization or via free agency or trade. But GM Don Sweeney had other holes to fill entering an important off-season, particularly in the middle-six of Boston’s lineup. With that in mind, the Bruins found one of their needs on the open market with the addition of former Predators winger Craig Smith on Saturday. The Bruins inked the veteran winger to a three-year deal with an average cap hit of $3.1 million per season. “Yeah, it was pretty exciting…obviously a great opportunity here, so we’re ecstatic about that,” Smith said regarding his signing with the Bruins via Zoom. “My wife and I were kind of going through the boxes of what we want checked off for places and I couldn’t be more happy to land here. I’d like to thank the Jacobs family and especially Don Sweeney and the rest of the staff for believing in us. My wife and I felt comfortable that this was going to be. This checked off all the boxes and especially, this is a team that catches your attention and is going to be definitely a contender. We’re excited and we’re ecstatic. Last night when things got done, I think we were both kind of shook and just excited to get there and go to work.” Smith’s wife became a selling point. But what...
