    Even the positive article by Pete Prisco about the Ravens young players takes two shots at Ray Lewis.

    Prisco has always been negative about Ray. In week 1 Ray had 14 tackles, 1 sack, 1 FF and Prisco quickly tweeted how they were all "10 yards down field".

    The truth is 8 of the tackles were within 3 yards of the line of scrimmage but it was something convenient for him to say knowing that the vast majority if people would never actually look it up.
    Prisco has a personal vendetta against ray.

    Any idea why?

    It seems like everyone (Tim Ryan, Prisco, Toomer, Florio, etc) are getting their shots in. As if they bottled them up for 12 years.

    Will Smith (Saints DE) was being interviewed by Tim Ryan on NFL Radio about his thoughts in the SB matchup. Ryan's question pertaining to Ray went something like this:

    Ryan: "How do you feel about how exploited Lewis is going be on Sunday? I've watched him and he is a total liability out there and doesn't help in any facet of the game."

    Smith was taken aback when answering and defended Ray saying he has been fine and that Ryan was going overboard.

    I don't really know. Yeah ray isn't the same but he's playing at a high level for being 37 and injured.

    Appreciate the comments folks. Busy day so I'm just now getting back on and haven't had a chance to read all of them. I realize that this was more of a vent or rant than anything so apologies for coming off too strong maybe. But bottom line, I'm proud as hell to be a Baltimorean and a Raven fan --and if uninformed/ignorant people want to downtalk my city or my team I won't exactly take it with a smile on my face.

    When friends find out I now live in MD, they automatically think of The Wire. Sadly people who have never visited this state thinks that Baltimore is a good representation of MD and that The Wire is a good representation of Baltimore. No one would want to root for a city as corrupt as the city of Baltimore is presented on that show.

    On top of that, you guys have Ray, who is seen as a huge hypocrite to 99% of the population outside of MD.

    That's probably why you guys are getting sh!tted on by the national media.

    They've hated us since the Browns moved here.

    Then there was the Ray thing and that made it even worse. they've always hated us since we blasted our way back
    in the NFL but always works for us and will again on Sunday.

    New Jersey is the same way. Everyone thinks that the state is one giant Newark and Camden overrun with gang bangers and Sopranos.

    Well, yeah, but that's the truth, ain't it?

    When I was in college in the (Very) High Psycholithic (i.e., the Really, Really, Really Stoned Age, man) I took a summer course at Columbia University. One day the bunch of us were grousing before class started about how crappy the environment was. Someone said to one of the TA's, "Name one good think about living in Manhattan in the summer."

    He thought for a minute & said, "You have to admit we get spectacular sunsets--when the sun goes down behind all the crap hanging over New Jersey, the colors are incredible!"

    Before the 95 sign, it was always Bmore was just a stop at the train station.

    Brooks Robinson said players didn't particulary want to come here in the 50s and
    60s but it's different now. That was after Harbor Place went up and then Camden
    Yards.

    I think the NFL and its media knows what types of stories sell. The Ravens don't sell what the white, middle class American buys. I belong to that class, BTW. And so the narrative is centered mainly around that group.

    Look at the Ravens:
    - vagabond franchise
    - left a hurtful, loyal fan base without their team
    - a "killer" is not only their leader, but an icon!
    - no offense historically, very "boring" games
    - no super-athlete types of players

    The Ravens are America's step-child. The best way to reconcile is to enjoy their misery as the Ravens win.

    I think much of the disrespect this team gets has to do with the fact they play a brand of ball (defensive) that is just not sexy and that most of MSM cannot appreciate fully. They would rather by slurping Tom Brady's jock or Peyton Manning's. The NFL is trying to sell offensive football and rule changes to benefit offenses clearly demonstrate this. Most MSM are smart enough to know that if they write and promote the message the NFL wants then doors open and access become available for them that might not be available for those who do not tow the line. The Ravens have never fit this mold in the past and if Joe were to win the Super Bowl and follow it with a spectacular season next year, you will see very different press about them in general.
