"It's kind of a running joke with us that Dad doesn't give you an answer right away," said Bisciotti, the Ravens owner. "You bring him your requests and then you have to wait a day to get your answer from Ozzie. If he agrees with us, the day didn't kill us. If he doesn't agree, he's thought about it and has some pros and cons that maybe we didn't think of. Or maybe our tempers and anxieties have calmed down. It just always works in our favor. He's always a calming presence."
