"The Flocktagon" Stadium Nickname Makes the Ravens #1 NFL Venue
November 22, 2011- Today is the 48th Anniversary of the death of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy. It's a time to reflect on his life and his impact to American society. He was a fan of football. He and his siblings were known for their intense touch football games at the Kennedy Estate.
The City of Baltimore is just a 45-minute drive from our nation's capital. Baltimore is just a one-hour drive to The Pentagon. The Pentagon is the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense.
The Baltimore Ravens for over a decade has been deemed one of the best NFL defensive teams over that span. When teams visit M & T Bank Stadium they feel the energy of the 71,000 fans who flock to games decked out in their Raven mascot gear.
The Ravens online community are known as 'The Flock.' Ray Lewis the vocal leader and the best defensive player of his generation has helped create a culture of relentless defensive pressure for opponents when they come to town.
Corporate naming rights on stadiums is part of the business of the NFL. M & T Bank stadium has been given a new nickname by Dunkadelic Sports Marketing "The Flocktagon". The nickname is an homage to those 71,000 fans who attend games that are known as 'The Flock', and also pays homage to that culture of defense that has won one Super Bowl, and has a chance to win another one this season.
Derrick E. Vaughan of Dunkadelic Sports Marketing says, "The Flocktagon nickname for M & T Bank Stadium will make it the number 1 venue in the NFL. This will also give the Ravens more of a national following. It will become a landmark of pride and honor for future generations of Ravens fans and players. The stadium and all businesses around it will help add to the mystic as fans walk to the stadium and see 'Welcome to The Flocktagon', or signs that say 'Enter The Flocktagon.' It will be very intimidating to all visiting teams."
The Ravens at 7-3 are tied with New England and Pittsburgh for the best record in the AFC. They have the tie-breaker over the Steelers, and two-years ago handed the Patriots the worst home playoff defeat in franchise history.
If the Ravens are the number 1 seed heading into the playoffs the road to the Super Bowl will go through "The Flocktagon." If that is the case the Ravens will have a chance to win a second Lombardi Trophy on the field of a team that used to be named the Baltimore Colts.
