I'd rather he was pissed off with his teammates and coaches rather than fans who berate the team after a game.
The team deserve criticism for yesterday as they again let a winnable game slip through their fingers. Ray certainly shouldn't take it personally as he's by far our best player and has been a beast all year. Cursing/name calling fans should be ignored but legitimate criticism is warranted.
Harbaugh was crucified for calling out fans a couple of years ago, but Ray gets a pass?
As to your other point about Rice calling out the fans. I kind of agree with you. Rice has never been through this before. He does need to realize that fans can go both ways and still be fans.
I bet Rice is pissed off at Oher too but he won't say it to his face.
I am no fan of this coaching staff, obviously. But I have said for years it is the players that get us the "W"'s despite the coaching in place.
As for Rice dogging fans, if they were on MY TWITTER page, lighting it up with negative comments, I say he has all the right in the world. It was a big difference from when Harbaugh called out a fan in a public forum to go root for another team.
When he comes here and tells me I am not a fan because I think the head coach sucks, then I will have a problem with Ray Rice.
I respect Ray Rice so much.
On and off the field, he's the best of the best. Good for him.
For the most part, the Ravens players appear to be guys I want my kids to admire: Torrey Smith, Joe Flacco, Ray Rice, and several others.
We are blessed to have a team with so many stars who appear to have their heads screwed on straight.
Ray has earned the right and respect to call out whoever he feels warrants admonishing - go for it, Ray!
You got fans of every category, we all here to some point including myself think we "know" how to call plays or insinuate it, nothing wrong with that thats apart of being a fan, its when they get over the top and start the d-bag business is when its a issue. I think here we are all passionate about this team, I don't think there is one poster here that fits that d-bag mold, but they are in every fan base.
