    That's fine with me. As Suggs said, "the bandwagon is full".

    Great post!

    Bring on the hate. I totally agree this team thrives on it. It is their nature.

    Lemmy from Motorhead once said something like "We're the kind of band that if we move in next door, your lawn will die." That's the Ravens - always taking a shit on somebody's birthday cake.

    See also, my sig below, which sums it up for me.

    Re: The Ravens are the bad guys

    I remember in 2000 thinking, and hoping, that the Ravens would have this huge surge in popularity. I thought people would love us and our defense, and across the country people would jump on the bandwagon like they did for the Steelers and Raiders of the seventies.

    Somewhere along the past thirteen years, I went from hoping other people would grow to love my team, to not caring, to now actively saying screw you, you didn't want to love us then, don't even think about it now. I would feel as dirty as a stripper at a Duke lacrosse party if we attracted the front-runners who also root for the Lakers, Yankees, Carolina, and Bama.

    The very headline of this column in the Washington Post made me want to go find someone wearing a rubber pig snout run them through a meat grinder: "Hail to the Ravens?..." http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinio...5e7_story.html Read the whole thing if you really want to get pissed off.

    Don't you DARE soil my beautiful purple with your burgundy and yellow slime. I don't want the your 'regional' love, I don't want Squealer fans rooting for us for AFC North pride, I don't want Cleveland fans rooting for us for... well, nevermind. At least we don't have to worry about Cleveland fans rooting for us.

    Every team with success has haters. Since coming to Baltimore the Ravens have won 150 game, made 9 playoff appearance and are going to their second Super Bowl. Joe Flacco has won more playoff games in the last 5 years than the Cardinals, saints, Bucs, Lions, Falcons and Bengals have won in their history. We have beaten a lot of teams in important games, we have ended a lot of seasons, and we have players who like to talk smack sometimes even though they mostly back it up. Over the last 10 years the 49 ears have been largely irrelevant.

    It doesn't matter though, this is not American Idol. Nobody votes for who wins this game. the Ravens need to take care of business on Sunday and then who cares what the rest of the country thinks.

    I think the Ravens seem to compare favorably with the 1970 Raiders.

    Opposing fans/teams and the media don't have to like us, but they better damn sure respect us. Or we will just take that respect from them. Bring on the hate!

    The haters are working overtime because they just can't accept they were ALL WRONG.
    They HATE being called out for what they are and how piss poor they are, knowing nothing about the game of which they spew about.
    They keep trying to find ANYTHING to knock the Ravens down, anything.
    And it doesn't have to be true, just throw it out there.

    IF it were the Giants, like last year, they would be held up high by the media and calling Eli elite over and over again.
    IF it were the Cowboys even, they would be talking about how Romo got the monkey off his back.
    IF it were Peyton, they would be still proclaiming he is the best quarterback ever...
    Or IF it were Brady...look how smart Billichick is and Brady is the greatest quarterback ever...
    But, it's the Ravens.
    And ever single thing that can be shed in a bad light is being put in headlines.
    They will take comments out of context and twisted and manipulate it into something it is not.
    Ray is now being accused and convicted in the media with almost all of the evidence coming from a former male stripper trying to drive up his sales of garbage.
