    I am not an Orioles fan, but appreciate what Flanagan did in his career/life. You might say I held my own personal moment-of-silence for the loss of this lefty. The fact that Bisciotti is holding an "official" m-o-s tonight shows respect and an admirable appreciation for Mike. I'm glad that our Ravens owner is a class act... Bc

    Yes it can.

    Did Mike have other monkeys on his back? Without a doubt. But it is reasonable and apparent to connect those dots and identify *one* factor as the state of the team coupled with Mike's own involvement with it. Casting his ugly shadow over that factor is Peter Angelos.

    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.

    I would actually have been surprised AND disappointed had SB Not done this. Afterall, the Orioles/Ravens fanbase is ONE family, is it not?!

    When people close to him say it was a factor, I have to believe it.

    As for other monkeys, the Sun is reporting that personal financial issues were a factor.

    very classy move by bisciotti.

    for some reason, it reminded me of when angelos forbid his employees to wear purple during the ravens' super bowl run. mf'er!

    When I found out the reason for his suicide that made it worse, it's unreal and heartbreaking. I always admired Mike's passion for the Orioles and the game of baseball in general.

    My respect for Steve Bisciotti continues to grow, far as the lawyer who is perpertrating a real baseball owner, I'm going to keep my feelings about him to myself for now.

    Re: OT: Mike Flanagan Passes Away

    Classy move by Steve

    My suggestion to all is to take the time to tell the people you love how much they mean to you....thats the most fitting tribute to Mike I can think of.

    Then enjoy the game

    You don't have to say it, we all share the same feelings.

    We agree to disagree. I think it inappropriate to debate it
