    There is no defense for being an asshole. I was trying to be nice, but that's the truth. Don't be an asshole, don't be a jerk. Don't call people you don't know bad names.

    How fucking low does the bar have to be? All I'm saying is, don't go up to complete strangers and call them names. And you won't agree with that. You defend this house like Frank Walker. What I'm saying is, defend the house like Ed Reed. Show some fucking class.

    Well said, below is a link worth reading. A bit long but it sums up what you describe and maybe goes a step further.

    Rugby players think at times they are the only sportsmen who understand camaraderie and sportsmanship. Obviously that is not the case. Below is a post from a blog that for obvious reasons has become very popular in Ireland.

    A brief history, Ireland has never beaten in New Zealand in over 100+ years of competition of rugby. In fact, only one provincial side, Munster, beat the All Blacks in 1978. A few weeks ago Munster almost did it again and here is the story. It is something too many American fans needs to think about-- a small minority of idiots but still a problem .

I don't know about some of the people in this thread but my Daddy taught me there are just some things you don't let slide.
    Wow.....key board commando, real man!!! I 'd rather doubt you would make it thru a night at Central Booking. Lets call a truce fellow Ravens fan!

Although I had nothing to do with the rude treatment your wife received, my comments were a result of still being miffed about the results of the game. Not that it is of any consequences, but my youngest sons best friend is a Steeler fan. He is 18 and was wearing his Big Jen jersey. I think of this boy (young man) as a fourth son. I made him wear an overcoat for the trip down to M&T. I also gave him fair warning of possible consequences. I think it's just the nature of the beast, right or wrong. My apoligies to your family, sir.
    Fair enough. It's all good. Believe me, my wife was warned about the consequences of wearing her Steelers jersey. She is not a braggart or a trouble maker at the games. She sits down and claps for her team. She does not trash talk and would never twirl a towel. I do not like the Steelers and can't stand the fans either. I just happen to be married to one (an interesting story in and of itself). My point is simply this. she was minding her own business, waiting for me and she was pelted with beer cups and called horrific names, simply because she was wearing her team's jersey. There is a fundamental difference between being a Ravens fan and "protecting your house" to assaulting a fan of the opposing team simply because she is wearing a jersey from the other team.

    If she was mouthy and a trash talker, I could understand to some degree being called names. But she is not an instigator, and avoids conflict if at all possible (she can neither throw or take a punch).

    I don't think darb is a keyboard commando. He's a big dude (former offensive lineman, I think) and a Southern Gentleman, as well.

    And besides, being rude to women and children is just cowardly behaviour. Just call SAFE if they're the offenders and avoid a possibly nasty confrontation. It's impossible to win a battle against a woman or a child.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    XMRADIODAVE: May I ask a personal question? Did you fall in love with her in the off-season?, and then it was too late when Football season came along? Pardon my intrusion, but I was just wonderin'?

    She was a closet Steelers fan. She knew I was a Ravens fan, and she kept her colors hidden. Since we do not have DirecTV, and when the Ravens are away, I always had the ravens games on. I came home from work one evening, and she was watching football, wearing a Steelers jersey and hootin' and hollering at the TV. I said something to the effect of "What the fuck is this?". She quickly turned the channel and said she was watching whatever was on the other channel. But she forgot she was wearing the incriminating evidence. I was hoodwinked. The lawyer said that that was not grounds for a lawful divorce, and that she would be able to take me to the cleaners.

    But I love her. She is cute when she watches football, even if it is the Steelers.

    Believe me Ravensarge, if I was truly pissed, I would have been a bit more descriptive than the long walk/short pier suggestion. No hard feelings.

    Wow, this was an eye-opening thread. But its good to see, for the most part, that civility prevails.
