"The Flocktagon" Makes Baltimore the NFL's #1 City of Defense
November 30, 2011- The Baltimore Ravens have created a culture of defense for it's NFL franchise since the team won Super Bowl XXXV by defeating the New York Giants 34-7.
That team was led by Ray Lewis who by all accounts is the most dominant defensive player of his generation.
Since winning the Super Bowl almost 11-years ago the Ravens have been at the top of the league for defense every year like it's a birth-right. Lewis is joined by Ed Reed a sure shot Hall-of-Fame player, and Terrell Suggs who is on his way of becoming a HOF caliber player.
M & T Bank Stadium has recently been given a nickname to cement that culture of defense and make the 71,000 seat building a landmark around the entire 32-team league.
"The Flocktagon" is unique, distinctive, and more important a brand identity for the Ravens organization to build on for future generation of players who wear the purple and black.
The nickname is a a combination of the teams fans that are known as "The Flock" and "The Pentagon" in Alexandria, VA. The Pentagon is the national headquarters for U.S. Department of Defense.
The Pentagon is 43 miles from Baltimore, and NFL teams run a 3-4 or 4-3 defense (Ravens 3-4).
The college game has its fair share of stadium nicknames Michigan has "The Big House", LSU has "Death Valley" Ohio State "The Shoe", or "The Horse Shoe", and Florida "The Swamp."
These stadium nicknames become just as important to the program as the mascot name that is on the helmet or the jersey.
"The City of Baltimore will enjoy the benefits of "The Flocktagon" as it will become a landmark stadium in sports and for sports fans around the country to associate with" says, Derrick E. Vaughan of Dunkadelic Sports Marketing. Vaughan is the creator of "The Flocktagon" nickname.
