Angry Former Ravens Owner Art Modell Dies

Art Modell passed away early this morning at Johns Hopkins hospital due to natural causes. He was a much beloved man by everyone in the Ravens organization, especially the players. He was very influential in getting Monday Night Football started back in the early 70's (if my memory is correct). It's very appropriate then that the Ravens are playing in the 1st Monday night game of the season.

Real sad news Pete. There was a thread posted on the main page earlier but it deserves to be on here as well.

Yeah its quite apt that we have the first monday night game of the season after all the great work Mr Modell done to get the match televised.

Welcome aboard and thanks for posting. Always good to see more people posting on here.

Sad news. He was before my time really, but to see Ray Lewis on the verge of crying in an interview today, clearly shows you how highly he was thought of (outside Cleveland anyway).

RIP Art. He sounds like a controversial figure who had a significant impact on the NFL as we know it today.
