#73689 Ravens Will Unveil Ray Lewis Statue Outside M&T Bank Stadium Before 2014...

Posted by papasmurfbell on 25 March 2014 - 06:56 AM

I have always thought that the statues of HOFers should go down that walk between CY and M&T.  The O's would be on the stretch from CY and the Colts/Ravens towards that stadium.  It could be the walk of legends.

#74318 Ray Rice Arrested

Posted by dc. on 01 April 2014 - 02:52 PM

My biggest chuckle is the reference to mods here like this is an ESPN board w one million users and these mysterious mods who zap unsuspecting posters like big brother in some totalitarian state.

The biggest modding I've ever done here is moving a post or two and sending a PM asking folks to behave. I'm like the freaking bartender at brunch.

But whatever straw man you wanna fight...

#71123 Now That The Dust Has Settled .......

Posted by vmax on 13 February 2014 - 04:37 PM

Don't quite understand why Mods here discourage long threads. One would think that a sites' value is measured by the activity it attracts. The better sites attract many more views and many more replies. This site does not. Are the Mods restricting activity on this site because they do not wish to become bigger and better?

 

14271.jpg  Good thing that you asked. We spend untold hours and very large amounts of money a week trying to figure out how we can remain a small and obscure site. Once a thread topic gets more than 2 replies we scramble to see how we can stop it. At the top of our agenda items this week we are currently deadlocked on the issue of warning posters if they post more than 2-3 posts a week. Half of us are leaning toward 2. Using the Ignore button on everybody is another action item.

#66619 STILL LUV REX.

Posted by Spen on 25 November 2013 - 09:57 AM

Wrong, the Jets were supposed to be a contender for a #1 pick before this season. With Sanchez done, Revis gone, and rookie Gino in with a buttload of rookies, the Jets were supposed to be a non entity this season, but as in season's past, the Jets have surprised the media critics and the NFL. That's hellufied coaching.

 

Wrong. Yesterday they were in the driver spot for a playoff spot and they had a piss poor effort. That was not great coaching. Donnt be a Rex groupie.

#91129 Kubiak Staying

Posted by vmax on 12 January 2015 - 04:40 PM



Why woudl I be joking that Joe and the guys he throws to should work out all the bugs in their game?  Other than Daniels and SS nobody was totally on the same page with Joe.  I think it is from Daniels being experienced in this system and Smith being a consummate pro and being able to adapt.  Working with guys is more for the guys Joe throws to than him.  

 

I would say Unitas, Berry, and Moore knew what they were talking about.

 

i know all about Unitas and Berry working out and that was evenings after practice. They had jobs in the off season.

 

1. There is more than enough opportunity for them to get down timing and chemistry during OTA's and Training camp....plus the 5 day grind each week between games (another 16 weeks worth).

2. What can they accomplish on some high school football field? In a few hours? There's nobody to press and defend or rush. How nice would it be for Torrey or somebody to blow an ACL stepping in a hole/divot on some non NFL field.

2A....and I don't want Joe unwinding and throwing all out until his arm strength is 100%. It would bee too cool for him to blow something out because he is not in shape.

3. Joe's been throwing the ball to Torrey for 4 years. The reps have to be in the thousands. Thousands of them.

4. Torrey has hit his ceiling. He's not going to get better. What you see is what you get with Torrey. He has a significant body of work to make it plain to see the weakness in his game. He'll never be a #1. He's not tough enough. He can't break press coverage. He has a limited route tree where he's an effective weapon. He disappears.

5.Yea...All that 2 hours on one or 2 Saturdays in the Spring can accomplish is to shut your yap that this is all they need to be great. If they don't do it, then this will be your great insight as to why Torrey drops passes, has trouble getting open unless it's a go route,  doesn't see the ball, doesn't fight for the ball and still catches with his chest. 

6. 4 Friggn'n Years of Torrey running the same route and Joe throwing the same pass...and a couple of Saturday afternoons in the off season will change everything.

 

51 NFL players got more catches than Torrey this year. 51. 42 averaged more yards per catch. 42.

What kind of dent in these numbers do you see a couple of Saturdays in the off season playing pitch and catch will do?

#90653 Flacco-Rasta

Posted by RavenMad on 07 January 2015 - 06:48 AM

Or the Ravens could do when they see a shiny apple on the horizon what Indy did and eat the season.  Do the full rebuild and accumulate every pick they can get.

 

This is total horse shit. Indy didn't suck on purpose to get Luck. They had no one to replace Peyton Manning when he got injured. Do you think the FO approached Jim Caldwell and told him we want you to lose every game so we can get the #1 pick and draft Luck but oh by the way we will fire you at the end of the season for losing. No team will ever lose on purpose in order to get a higher draft pick as the draft is such a crap shoot. For every Manning there is a Leaf, for every Luck there is a RGIII, for every Flacco there is a Ryan.

 

I think we should petition some NFL teams to get Papa an interview for one of the open GM spots. Can you imagine the interview with the owner?

 

Owner: "So tell me how you intend to turn us into a winner and get us a Superbowl?"

Papa: "I start by trading every player with any value for draft picks"

Owner: "I don't think other teams will give up a lot of picks for aging Vets with big contracts."

Papa: "There will always be an idiot GM that I can Jedi Mind trick into giving up a 1st round pick for a player. If I had been Ravens GM I would have got a 1st round pick for Boldin when he was traded to the 49ers."

Owner: "Wow, impressive what else would you do to improve the team?"

Papa: "I would tank the next couple of seasons so we can get the #1 draft pick and draft a can't miss QB."

Owner: "What!?! We can't do that the fan base would stop coming to the games and we would lose money."

Papa: "Don't worry about losing money, I would have traded you for a 1st round pick to another team that would still be making money."

Owner: "Great, you are hired."

#70686 Once again, Mike Preston proved to be a liar and a fraud

Posted by tsylvester on 31 January 2014 - 07:28 AM

Since the Preston piece came out, both Lombardi and Byrne have changed their stories. Each version more ridiculous than the last. I smell sweat and a lame attempt to cover ass. Preston had it right from the start.

 

 

 

Byrne has not changed his story, not in the context you speak. He has given more detail about what and how it all came together.  Since Preston's story, anothe Sun reporter has come out and pretty much backed up what the Ravens have said, not Preston. And Tony has done nothing but back track as well.

 

See, he gets paid per click, so even if he reports something that is wrong, he gets paid. When he has to print a retraction, he gets paid and people think; how stand up he is for admitting he was wrong.  Like Preston, he knows, bad publicity is still publicity.

#70622 Once again, Mike Preston proved to be a liar and a fraud

Posted by papasmurfbell on 29 January 2014 - 09:17 AM

no, Preston wants just wht he got, your post, people talking about him, radio shows talking about him, having him on air, callers phoning in, .......

Of coooourse!!!  That is what I have been saying.

 

 

So you think Byrne who is the Ravens version of the White House press sec isn't in the job of spinning?  His job is to make the Ravens look good if that takes lying then so be it.  Come on Kubs was not on the radar really.  He said himself that he talked with Harbs for the first time 2 days ago.  They have neutered him but they don't want the bad PR of it.  They want to prevent Harbs on the hot seast from day 1 of 2014.

#64848 Just so you know how this board works

Posted by deeshopper on 01 November 2013 - 07:17 AM

I have OldSchool on ignore for a number of reasons.

 

First, I got tired of him contacting me day after day after day complaining about the reputation system and how two members continually downvote his posts. After disputing this with evidence, I told him that in his short time as a member here, he has used the reputation system the most, more than any other member ever. So, it makes him a bit of a hypocrite to claim foul regarding a system that he continues to manipulate. Which, by the way, is against the community guidelines. Strike one.

 

Second, his personal attacks on members is just plain old and tired. I don't want to read them, and so I choose not to. The harassment and personal attacks are against the community guidelines. Strike two.

 

Third, his continual moaning, whining, complaining, and temper tantrums on all things ExtremeRavens, is boring, dull, unimaginative, and pedantic. I personally don't have time for them. As he has been advised ad naseum, there are other message boards and football communities for him to join. He clearly hates it here. Why stay? Move on. This is America. He has a choice. No one, clearly, is forcing him to remain. His public outbursts and challenges to the way the community is moderated is tired. It also doesn't follow the community guidelines. Strike three.

 

Fourth, personally attacking me really isn't going to solve his problem. I'm not his problem. He is his problem. I can't change that. Harassing or attacking me isn't really helping his cause either. The moderators can attest to the fact that I've advocated for him on several occassions.

 

You see, unlike most other boards, most decisions regarding the moderation of this community is done by committee. Why? Because, as Max said, we're all volunteers. We aren't paid. We don't make any money on this site. You don't see a bunch of advertisements anywhere on this site. We aren't selling your information, and we aren't profitting off of your demographic data by leveraging it to corporate sponsors. I personally, shell out thousands of dollars a year to have this thankless job of hosting; maintaining; and with the help of volunteers, managing this community. As a result, we've formed a tight knit community of friends (yes, friends; real-life friends that visit each other, meet each other's families, visit each other in different states and countries, attend Ravens and Orioles games together, share losses together, bury our deceased members, and leave it to the other members to comfort the loved ones we've left behind.)

 

So, I write all of that to say that I am every member's biggest cheerleader and ally. Trust me, there are a number of members that wouldn't be here today if not for me talking down the moderators. So, while some would like to imagine me sitting on high, acting as a dictator (which, given everything I put into this community over the last seven years or so, would be totally justified), it really isn't like that at all. But, I can understand that when everyone else in a community hates your guts, it is easy to attempt to call out the one person that continually answered all of your questions, researched all of your complaints, handled your continual needling about the site and how it functions, and changed operations so you felt better. I get it. I do. Unfortunately, when you strike out against that person, the one that has helped you all this time, you tend to lose the respect, patience, and compassion of that person. And that would be strike four.

 

So, have a nice day. Enjoy your 10 day suspension. If you decide to come back, I hope you do so with a little more tolerance, dignity, and comprehension of the English language. The first thing you should do is read the community guidelines, and then try your best to adhere to them. I hope you show a little more maturity on whatever message board on which you end up. Believe it or not, I'll actually be rooting for you. Good luck.
