    Most of it's positive, IMO
    Agreed.

    Very few, IMO, are griping about the Ravens. I'd say 90% has been very positive even a week later.

    Re: The National media is OBSESSED since we won the Lombardi

    maybe ive just been too busy but outside hearing about Flaccos contract I havent heard much at all media wise good or bad. Id actually say its been pretty low key if anything as far as previous SB winners getting a full week of celebration, highlights parades and praise which may be another slight.

    I here ya'. You know what I noticed though... that the anti Ravens stuff is usually the same ol' shit, but they same ol' people... and they are kind of all going of the deep end and sounding unprofessional at this point. There is some good stuff though. NFL Network guys are usually very good. But I do notice that the Post Superbowl hype has really continued and continued... was it that huge of a game? Or are we just paying attention more because we are Ravens fans? Maybe they talked just as long about the Giants last year... maybe I just turned it off because I didn't care.

    And... the media feeds on controversy... The whole Flacco contract is breeding controversy. It's a perfect story creating a superstorm.

    Okay. Dumb question but exactly where does Peter King MMQ blog reside now? I think cnnsports has changed to the Bleacher report?

    He's right though about Williams, IMO. Williams should have been ejected and it sets a terrible precedent that he's not getting fined and / or suspended. You simply cannot touch a ref. Period. It's all well and good he didn't know that was a ref he was shoving, but that's a mitigating factor once punishment is handed down.
    Then by that case Ngata should have been ejected also for picking up and pulling Booger out of the pile from getting destroyed. By what you said above underlined.

    Very lazy reporting by King. The quotes he referenced were made in response to releasing older veterans like they did with Heap, Mason, and Gregg a couple years back. They had nothing to do with the Flacco negotiations, a franchise QB in his prime. He's putting 2 & 2 together and getting 10. I emailed him and told him as much. Just terrible reporting, and not up to his usual standards (I generally like reading his work).

    As for Boomer, fuck him. The courtroom transcripts are public record. If he has an issue, he should read it (I'd bet he never has) and point out any issues he may have with the testimony. But he won't because he's fucking lazy.

    He thinks being controversial will save his job, which he's lousy at. It's time for CBS to take out the trash.

    I agree that Williams should get fined, since it's too late to do anything else.
    As for the Ray Lewis incident, I gave up trying to defend what did or didn't happen 3-4 years ago. Haters are going to hate, and idiots just aren't going to allow themselves to be educated. Anyone who perpetrated such a heinous act could not go 10 or more years without committing another similar act, Steelers fans love when I say, look at Ben Roethlisberger.

    That brings up something that's kinda overlooked.
    Sure looks like Bruce Miller is the one that gave Boger a shove and knocked him back.

    Re: The National media is OBSESSED since we won the Lombardi

    Oh, P.S.

    As for Williams, by all rights he should've been ejected. It would've sucked, and might've cost us the win, but I don't think anyone could argue against it if he had been, let alone penalized. But it is what it is. The refs, to their credit, cut both teams a lot of slack both during and between plays. Probably too much in Cary's case, but it is what it is. FWI, there is precedent, as I believe Cam Newton made contact with a ref this season and wasn't ejected. I think he might've been penalized, though. Either way, I still wouldn't have complained if he'd been tossed, and I definitely think he should've been fined. Terrible precedent by the NFL. I also wasn't thrilled with Williams' post-game comments on it. The quotes I saw were pretty unapologetic. At least Newton apologized to the ref directly during the game, and publicly afterwards, and it seemed like a genuine apology.

    Yeah, like I said, the refs gave them a lot of leeway, on both sides. That scrum could've had several players tossed, Williams included. Great job by Ngata there, and Harbs too, which we all saw on Sound FX.

    I disagree, the Ravens have been getting a lot of positive press for over a week now.

    They are being celebrated as much as any recent SB champion.

    You are swallowing line, sink and hook the argument made by the opposition on this call. No, Williams should not have been ejected or fined. Contact with refs happens all the time in pile situations. We have seen it time and again. Refs are trained to understand that. How could it be any different if refs are going to be allowed to dive into piles to determine possession or break up fights?
