    Well I hope he has fun contributing to their fans "dying" because they'll be losing a lot.

    Which part of what Wilson said isn't true?

    And this thread title sounds like something a former sports talker on The Fan, and current sports anchor on Fox45 who will remain nameless might say to drum up some attention.

    Just sayin'...

    Do you mean your pal Bruce Cunningham?




    The part about comparing Ravens fans to Skins fans Tony. We supported Wilson, many of us wanted him to
    re-sign with us and he stabs us in the back, even when we defended him for screwing up the PO game.
    If I take the Ravens too seriously as many people say, some of you guys don't take them serious at all.


    He's speaking to the Post which covers his new team in his home town.
    All he had to do was leave Ravens fans out of it and say what a great
    tradition Skins fans have.

    So for those who think he's Ok fine. That's your opinion but please re-read
    the text again and in its proper context.

    Not seeing it. What we can't really tell is if Wilson was asked to compare the fan bases. If you read this (Blog) it seems likely on the heels of posting Harbaugh campaigning to take over DC (which btw I believe was tongue-in-cheek) Wilson was set up for such a response.

    But really, this is a perfect example of how defensive fans can be. But I get it...it's all good!

    I have and nothing he said is wrong. He gives props to Ravens fans and is correct in saying Redskins fans have more tradition than Raven fans (not Baltimore fans) He was asked a question and answered it, why do you care what some guy who played for 1 season in baltimore thinks? He is a DC boy who grew up a Skins fan.

    No, I think most of us are in the middle ground, where we don't take offense at every little thing that gets said. Wilson is back home; he's excited. BFD. It's not like he said Flacco would never win a Super Bowl.
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    Who cares.

    Nowhere in those quotes did he "rip" Ravens fans and I STILL would rather have him than Carr...without question.

    LOL at "but we defended him on that PI in Pitt"...we defended him because it was a bogus PI call, nothing else.

    Good Grief.

    He's in a better situation in DC. Shannahan won't wait until week 6 to even get him any PT like Harbaugh did.

    Re: Josh Wilson rips Ravens fans

    Trap, next time you want to make a point that's untrue, have something to back it up.

    Here is what Wilson said:

    “One thing about it, they have nowhere near the tradition of Redskins fans,” Wilson told the Washington Post with a grin. “...My uncle is 50-so years old and all they know are Redskins and you’d almost think somebody’s died when the Redskins have lost. And now I’m getting all these phone calls asking, ‘What do you think about this?’ and they think I’m going to give them all the insight, and I’m like, ‘Get out of here!’ But the Ravens have a strong fanbase up there. They’re growing and getting kind of that establishment that the Redskins already have.”
    This is not "ripping" Ravens fans, and I have half-a-mind to edit this extremely misleading thread title.

    Re: Josh Wilson rips Ravens fans

    Holy shit Trap, you need to stop taking everything someone says so personal as if they're completely disparaging the Ravens. Wilson paid the fans up here a compliment, and gave high kudos to the fan base of the team he's playing for, and you're acting like he said Ravens fans should go f*** themselves or something.

    1) This shouldn't be surprising that a player coming into a new city will talk higher about their city than the one they were just in. Did you really expect him to say "No man, Ravens fans are the best...these DC fans are just mediocre when it comes to rooting?" Do you think he's angling to get booed eight games a year from his new home town? Particularly when he grew up a Redskins fan?

    2) You understand that what you're doing in how you talk about Skins fans vs. Ravens fans in this thread is WORSE than what Wilson said about us? By, like, a LOT. So why is it exactly that you think it's okay for you to do that, but not okay for Wilson to pay his home town fans some compliments?

    3) You've drummed this up as though Wilson has done some horrible injustice to Ravens fans everywhere when he pays us a compliment, because it's not THE ULTIMATE COMPLIMENT!!!

    Seriously man, you need to chill out some. You get your blood boiling over some really ridiculous stuff that warrants absolutely no attention what-so-ever. This is one of those things.

    Guess I missed the part where he "ripped" us.

    Dude has an opinion. Wasn't ugly about it either. What's the big deal?

    It's akin to telling my wife that she give better head than any of my formers. May not be entirely true, but it's the right thing to say....

    Great analogy!

    However, I double dare you to tell your wife "But my formers gave pretty damn good head too!"

    Re: Josh Wilson rips Ravens fans

    man, i was pretty shocked to see this board get as offended as the sun board did. skins were around longer, thus they have more tradition. simple math really. he didnt say baltimore football and dc football, he said skins and ravens. so just because the colts played here once upon a time, doesnt mean that gives the ravens tradition. the ravens are building a great tradition, but compared to the longevity of the skins, come on man.

    Re: Josh Wilson rips Ravens fans

    Meh. He was careful to quantify his comments. I expect every player in the NFL to assure their team's fans they are the best in football. My only issue with it is that it is dismissive of Baltimore's overall NFL history and tradition, and it probably slipped his mind that the Baltimore Colt's football tradition lived on after a 13 year absence. A typical dumb Skin's fan comment, but it isn't the end of my world. I actually had a disagreement with Wilson once on Twitter, when he was making fun of someone for believing evolution. I mentioned it made him sound dumb. Two weeks later he must have come across it while twittering his name and came at me with a bunch of "why don't you @ me with that?" Er, because I don't really want to discuss anything with someone who doesn't believe in evolution. Duh. He's a really good CB, but not the sharpest pencil in the box. If this happened in the regular season, I might use it to get pumped up about the game; but it's preseason, so all I'm hoping for is good practice and development for our players and that nobody gets hurt.

    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.
