    Like you, I commend BA on his work, but following him on Twitter is insufferable. He's not the nicest dude in the world.

    His recent appearance on Jim Rome was especially bad. If you're going to be outspoken, you'll get more with honey than you will with vinegar.

    I follow him on twitter and have never thought he was "not nice". What do you mean?

    See how he treats those who disagree with him on any stance. It devolves into name calling usually started by BA.

    I'd say it's a bit two way street there. He gets his fair share of name callers dishing to him first.

    But I can see that point. He gets pretty defensive about his stance and generally gets riled up when someone directly disagrees with him. Is Chris Kluwe much different? He's just saltier with his language.

    No clue about Kluwe. I don't follow him.

    well, yeah... You could melt it down for raw materials weight no your own(only takes a torch... You could sell it privately to some rich guy to put in his trophy case... I was jsut sayign that it's not like you can find the ring nd put it on Ebay for $30k, or walk in to "Gold and Silver Pawn" and get $15k... The fact that you can't legally sell it means that whatever you do with it will mean you get pennies on the dollar...

    You'll be free to sell it once the statute of limitations runs out. That was my point.

    Now the owner of the ring might try to sue you civilly but as long as you're being discreet about it, they may never know about it.

    I would think, could be wrong, that Discreet, and top dollar are mutually exclusive terms when dealing with an item such as this. I would think a high end auction would be the best place to sell, and is far from discreet.

    There's so many grey and black markets out there you'd have ZERO trouble fencing something that valuable.

    Just have to know where to look.

    I get that, but for what price? Methinks those gray markets generally operate far below fair market value. 33% tops...

    If you're desperate for money? Yes.

    If you're patient and don't need the cash right away, you're going to find someone out there who is an uber Ravens fan willing to pony up the dough for a one of kind trophy for the man cave.

    While the statute of limitations on the theft (for purpose of prosecution) may run out, the stolen property remains the property of the individual who lost it. So at a certain point you could no longer be prosecuted for stealing it, but ownership of the property doesn't simply transfer to the person possessing it once the statute on the theft runs out, especially when the owner's identity is affixed to it.

    There is no statute of limitations on recovering stolen property and technically while you couldn't be charged with theft after the statute ran out you could certainly still be charged with possession of stolen property.
