    Re: shut up guys..



    Cool, thread not locked yet. I'll play!

    A very lame duck LBJ. Four weeks before me, MLK was shot. Two weeks after my arrival, RFK was shot. I think it explains the syndrome I've had all my life of feeling like I just walked into the room in the middle of a massive argument.

    It makes being a Ravens' fan feel vaguely comfortable.

We as Ravens fans are lucky as Hines Wards stated "the lion dens is the hardest place for us to play". Do we suit up and play? No we don't but I think as fan we have the right to feel as though we are a part of the team we support especially season ticket owners. Oh, who own the Packers?
    I can understand being a die hard fan and taking things extremely personal when it comes to fandom, although I don't quite get involved to the point where I take it personal, or allow a loss to ruin my day. ( Although I was po'ed the last few seasons when the Ravens got knocked out of the playoff's by the Steelers ) I personally think it sounds foolish when people use the "we" terminology when referring to a sports team that they're essentially not apart of, except for hollering in the stands. Although I agree the "12th man" environment can certainly cause headaches, but that would be more along the lines of "we" the fans. Right?

    I'm a fan of the Ravens as well, or obviously I wouldn't make some of the posts that I make ( and I don't feel the need to justify this to an internet message board poster ), however you're not going to catch me saying things such as, "c'mon guys, we can beat the Steelers this week. We're ready to go, and our defense is mad crazy this week."
    Not unless I'm actually on the field playing, which I'm not. To each their own I suppose.
    While you are correct we are just fans hollering in the stands, I do consider them to be my team and I use "we" all the time. I currently reside in NJ, 45 minutes west of NYC and drive back for every home game and attend at least 1 road game a year. I have invested plenty of time, energy and money into the Ravens, and while I do not feel I am a part of the "Team", i do feel I am a part of the organization.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I never possessed the God-given physical abilities to play football in any capacity other than on a sandlot (I can throw a beautiful, accurate spiral for up to about 20 yards though ) My freshman year in college I was 6-2/150lbs, so the NFL was just not in my future.

    However, I think I've been blessed with a good mind for facts/figures/trends, etc. I use that gift to help promote the Ravens in every way possible, including emails to various nationally-syndicated columnists. Michael Silver of Yahoo sports has gotten a slew of emails from over the years and has even made mention of a few stats I've sent him in a couple of his articles. That's my gift and my contribution. It's not much, but it's how I feel like I help the Ravens organization.

    Personally, I think anyone who takes money out of their pockets to pay for tickets and commits an entire afternoon to go to the stadium and root their hearts out for the Ravens deserves to consider themselves a small part of the organization.

    I dont know if I consider myself part of the organization, but I definitely consider myself part of the community.
