Denver Broncos fans vandalize and react to Joe Flacco banners around the city of Denver.

The NFL recently put up banners around the city of Denver promoting the season opener on September 5th. The game will be played at Sports Authority Field in Denver between the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens and the Denver Broncos. The banners were of the main players that will be in that game, one of which, being a large banner of Joe Flacco on the stadium. There were also mini-banners a few other places in the city with Joe Flacco's face on it.

Denver Broncos fans did not enjoy that the NFL put up these banners "promoting the Ravens," since the game is in Denver and not Baltimore. Obviously, the NFL wanted to promote the game in an unbiased manner, but Broncos fans did not like that one bit.

Later on Thursday, the banners of Joe Flacco were seen getting vandalized, mainly by one guy in particular: Vic Lombardi. Lombardi is a sportscaster for CBS4, the local CBS station in Denver. Lombardi did not just vandalize the banners. He also talked bad about the city of Baltimore, the NFL, Ravens fans, etc. in tweets. Here are main ones, in order of when they were tweeted:

Of course, it started as a thing between two football fan bases, but quickly escalated into Lombardi speaking about crime in the city of Baltimore, and making jokes about it.

Glenn Clark of WNST decided to have him on his show after the entire city of Baltimore was enraged about this man. Clark didn't take it easy on him. Take a listen here.

Overall, the acts and comments of Vic Lombardi were not classy, immature, and unnecessary.

How do you guys feel about the entire situation?
