I was just wondering if there was a Dallas-Houston type of rivalry where the people in each city hate the other town. Also, do Ravens fans dislike the Redskins like we dislike the Cowboys even though we rarely play them.
Yes and Yes.
People from the DC area do not like us folks from Baltimore. It's unfortunate that he has characterized Baltimore that way. I grew up in and around Baltimore and that's nothing close to the city I know.
IMO, it stems from sports mostly. Both cities are football towns, one city has fallen so far from grace, it's become a joke in NFL circles. The other is a well run organization that has a history of winning in their short life. Redskins fans have far more hostility than Ravens fans have towards them.
I'd say it is very much like the Dallas - Houston rivalry on many levels.
