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.
    he wasnt talking about baltimore football history. he was talking about the ravens. when talking about ravens tradition, it is not linked with colts football.a huge amount of raven fans were never hardcore colts fans. mostly due to age. that includes josh wilson.(not the part about being a raven fan, just his age) he isnt thinking of colts history, nor should he be when comparing the skins fanbase to the RAVENS fanbase.

    Many Ravens fans were apart of that old Baltimore tradition.

    Whether you feel it or not there is a link and a NFL tradition in Baltimore that goes back over 60 years. Whether everyone remembers or are old enough to remember is irrelevant. But like I said, I'm not too terribly plussed by Wilson's comments.
    "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.

    It's only a couple of guys, as far as I can tell.

    I have no problem with what Josh Wilson said. A few posters here - not "the board," just a few guys - are choosing the path of victimhood. Again.

    The title of the thread - compared to the actual facts - tells you all you need to know about the merit of this imagined grievance.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    That's what I say. I wasn't surprised by his lack of knowledge of the fan tradition here in Baltimore. I read an article a year or two or so ago saying that many younger NFL players have no real grasp on the history of the league and don't know, for example, there was a team called Baltimore Colts. So it isn't really surprising or shocking that he doesn't know about our history, even if he played here. He just really didn't know what he was talking about.

    The way I see it, the Ravens have a 16 year history in Baltimore, but Ravens fans have a tradition that spans 60+ years and four leagues.

    Other teams' fans say far worse about us and our history on a daily basis to get mad over this. It was a compliment, even if it was uninformed.

    I read this, didn't really think its that big of a deal. He grew up a skins fan, and now he is a redskin. What did we expect him to say?

    Scottie, the post is very hard to read. Paragraphs, punctuation, and capitalization would help a lot. Not trying to bust balls, but most people are just going to skip over it.
    I've upped my standards. Up yours.

    Text speak on a message board that caters to smarter, more engaged fans won't fly.

    Try again and this time use a language I like to call English and your posts will be more well received.
