Ravens donate two motorcycles to New Orleans police department

The Ravens have decided to show gratitude to New Orleans with a gift.

And the gift, we’re told, is a pair of 2013 Harley Davidson FLHP motorcycles, donated by the team to the New Orleans Police Department Traffic Division.

The announcement will be made by receiver Jacoby Jones at a Wednesday morning press conference.

The Ravens also have purchased an advertisement in the New Orleans Times-Picayune expressing thanks “to the citizens of New Orleans, including your outstanding police department, for your warm reception and first-class service to Ravens players, coaches and fans.”

It’s a unprecedented gesture by the Super Bowl-winning team to the host city, and we have a feeling it will become a trend.

Especially if the Ravens can repeat.

    New Orleans needs it that place is scum.

    How about paying for a backup generator?

  5. kane337 says: Mar 6, 2013 7:03 AM

    Did the Niners donate anything? Probably not. Bunch of sore losers.

    Another reason why Steve Bisciotti is one of, if not the, best owners in the NFL.

    total class in that orgsnization, top to bottom. Well, except Suggs…….die hard cowboy fan..

    Electra Glide in Gold and Purple….

  10. opbilly says: Mar 6, 2013 7:37 AM

    classy move from a classy organization!

  11. binkystevens says: Mar 6, 2013 7:44 AM

    Makes a lot of sense, since Harleys are from Milwaukee and all

  12. noring4youstill says: Mar 6, 2013 7:48 AM

    Can’t argue with that. Much better than what Ray Lewis did for Atlanta.

  13. jcmeyer10 says: Mar 6, 2013 7:49 AM

    Not a Ravens fan but this is classy.

  14. nolahxc says: Mar 6, 2013 7:53 AM

    We enjoyed having the great Ravens fans in the city!

  15. lombardiwinners2013 says: Mar 6, 2013 7:59 AM

    What a classy organization. A lot of teams envy our front office and decision making.

  16. mrlaloosh says: Mar 6, 2013 8:14 AM

    Back at ya Baltimore! Nothing but class from an outstanding city and organization.

  17. rexryanseacrest says: Mar 6, 2013 8:17 AM

    Had the Ravens won in Indy last year, they would have sent two burning bags of dog poo to Irsay’s front door. In all seriousness though, nice gesture. The people who help facilitate the event don’t usually get the credit they deserve. Surprised this wasn’t a tradition already.

  18. pallidrone says: Mar 6, 2013 8:23 AM

    Let the rumors start now…..

    Which Ravens player did something against the law the NO Police swept it under the rug?

  19. dkoulatsos says: Mar 6, 2013 8:29 AM

    Classy move by a class organization, and I’m proud of it giving something back. New Orleans did a fantastic job of hosting the Super Bowl! The people there couldn’t have been nicer!

  20. mdpickles says: Mar 6, 2013 8:36 AM

    What a great gesture by the Ravens organization. From Steve Biscotti on down, that organization has class and gets it.

  21. leksington says: Mar 6, 2013 8:37 AM

    What a classy and well run organization.

  22. mdagnew1 says: Mar 6, 2013 8:41 AM

    Great gesture by one of the classiest organizations in sports!

  23. jeffml says: Mar 6, 2013 8:51 AM

    I wonder what the Raven organization will give to New York/New Jersey next year?

  24. theravenlives2 says: Mar 6, 2013 8:52 AM

    Being a Ravens fan, this doesn’t surprise me at all. Just another classy move by a great and well-run franchise.

  25. iamapatsfan says: Mar 6, 2013 8:55 AM

    Very classy. Well done. If this becomes the start of a new tradition, it’s definitely a good one.

  26. ratbirdsrule says: Mar 6, 2013 9:02 AM

    surprisingly classy for any team

  27. camdenyard says: Mar 6, 2013 9:29 AM

    Nor a surprise. The Ravens organization epitomizes class from top to bottow.

    I was in New Orleans for the Super Bowl and came away as awed as Steve Bisciotti did. That is a fantastic place to hold this event. They should hold it there every 3-4 years.

  28. joey49er says: Mar 6, 2013 9:30 AM

    It was part of the deal for the refs for all the bad calls they made helping to beat the niners. Lol

  29. Cereal says: Mar 6, 2013 9:36 AM

    Steve Biscotti is as classy as it gets,,,very nice gesture

  30. wmelch says: Mar 6, 2013 9:41 AM

    If one more of you sheep write the word “class, classy, or classiest”, I’m gonna upchuck into my bowl of cream o’ wheat.

  31. ravenschick says: Mar 6, 2013 9:49 AM

    Typical Stevie B. Class guy. Hubby and I had tickets to the Super Bowl and went to New Orleans. What an amazing, vibrant city filled with great people. I had a blast and will be back to visit again! Thanks for your amazing hospitality, NOLA!

    Totally agree although it is a big improvement over their usual lingo of “Haters” and “Hate on Haters”

  33. crownofthehelmet says: Mar 6, 2013 10:34 AM

    Payoff. They should have been donated to the Atlanta PD.

    Why do you ponder passing?

  35. cometkazie says: Mar 6, 2013 11:30 AM

    At least someone likes the NOPD. . . .

  36. reed20fence says: Mar 6, 2013 12:18 PM

    The Ravens and Bisciotti are the class, classy, and classiest.

    I enjoyed the vibrance of NOLA with all its music and food.

  37. joewilliesshnoz says: Mar 6, 2013 12:31 PM

    Not bad, considering the Steelers have been to 8 super bowls and won’t buy those cities a hotdog cooker.

  38. biglaj007 says: Mar 6, 2013 2:04 PM

    Love the Ravens, very classy organization…in & out of Baltimore.

  39. packeye says: Mar 6, 2013 2:19 PM

    Class Act organization. Ozzie Newsome is one of the best at what he does all around.

  40. taddow6733 says: Mar 6, 2013 4:22 PM

    Very classy move by a classy organization. Always great to show gratitude in a way that hasn’t been demonstrated before. It would be a great move for the sport if the trend continued but when you’re the first to do it, it can never be looked at as a trite gesture or simply “tradition”. Great people and great teams do what they think is right, regardless of what others do or have traditionally done. Well done Ravens.

  41. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 7, 2013 2:18 PM

    Funny, they did nothing for Atlanta…wonder why?

    Enjoy your whine, cheese, and snow.
