Default Super Bowl Champs on the Road for Season Opener - what's that about ?

For the first time in a decade, the defending Super Bowl champion will not commence the following season with a Week 1 home game. Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens will hit the road on Thursday, September 5 to kickoff the 2013 NFL season because the Baltimore Orioles are scheduled to play the Chicago White Sox at 7:05pm eastern at Camden Yards the same night.
The problem facing the city of Baltimore is a common one: The Ravens and Orioles play at adjacent stadiums and share a parking lot. Football and baseball games taking place at the same time would cause a traffic problem.
Since this issue found its way to center stage we’ve had no shortage of suggestions for how best to rectify the problem. Move the NFL’s kickoff game to Wednesday, some have said. Sorry, that happens to be the Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah.

There must be major issues between the Ravens and the Orioles to cause this much of an issue on rescheduling a single baseball game ?
And why not play the game on the Jewish Holiday, I'm sure the NFL has played other games on religious holidays probably including Christmas ?

When i was in baltimore i stayed in the Hilton literally across the street from Camden Yards. I could see both from my room but i don't recall the 2 stadiums being that close to where it would be such a traffic problem like it would be here if the Astrodome was hosting something at the same time as Reliant. M &T seemed a ways off from Camden Yards....enough away to where 1 stinking parking lot shouldn't stop both from happening....

This. MLB could cease to exist this afternoon and I could not care less.

It would seem like a world champion pro football team could pull a little weight to get this done, as it's a big honor to host the opening game of the NFL season.
