    I was a lurker here for a year or two before i signed up, and just since ive been a member ive noticed that change right around the time that apparently happened. Change in quality as well as quantity. I can see why people left for green pastures but it seems the pastures arent so green these days.

    Re: This season just needs to end

    I'm thankful the Ravens are still in the mix and I kinda wish it would never end. Lovin' it, what a season!

    Particularly satisfying: First blowout against Pitt, 2nd Pitt game, Jets game, 9ers game. Those four games were incredible. Keep it up Ravens!

    Dude, calm down. It's national media spin gone wild. For some reason, the drama has seemed to escalate in recent times, whether its the Jets debacle, Romo throwing away games, the Penn State disaster, etc. The bloodlust at ESPN has reached maniacal heights, so of course they want to swoop in like vultures on Ed's comment and completely blow it out of context to drama it up, VH1 style.

    Do yourself a favor, and don't listen to national media outlets on TV or 105.7. You can avoid getting swept up in the hysteria that way.

    Thumbs down Re: This season just needs to end

    Come to think of it, I am ashamed of you for saying you want the season to end.

    If you can filter out the occasional extreme posters on this board (on both ends), you can actually get some very level-headed, informed and reasoned analysis on this site.

    Agreed.

    But I would argue that the filtering was not needed before.

    No doubt about it. I'm starting to use the ignore feature, wish I didn't have to, but it's basically the same idiots from that board that are going into the void.

    Trust me, the Suncrap board was infinitely worse.

    Not only did you have the guys like SugarRay who are about as fairweather as they come, but you had almost every other team's troll poster imagineable, you had a ton of racism, and you just had people who were general internet tough guys that just made the entire experience unbearable. At any given point if you were to look at the front page of that board there would be at least 5-8 threads started by assholes and discussed by bigger assholes.

    As bad as you guys think this board has gotten, it's nowhere near as bad as the other board was.

    Wicked, that doesn't make me feel better. This used to be a 90% civil, and much more cerebral board. I miss it.

    I just ignored my first person in 5 years on this site.

    This is how I see it too; get past the bi-polar crowd and it's a great board. Easy enough to ignore what you think is useless

    Re: This season just needs to end

    Cracks me up when people say it is 100X worse because of SunSpot exodus. Sorry, I didn't know this was a private sandbox that so many original posters must be paying for out of their own pocket. Fact is, I could have joined in 2006, but I was already friends with GOTA, WickedSolo, and others it just seemed pointless to post on more than one board about the Ravens. When that site went belly up and we all moved here, the timing was right.

    This is the only site to go to for the Ravens.

    Fact is when the team is on the verge of a Super Bowl, all fans come out of the wood work. Like there were never trolls on here till 2011? You guys need to thicken your skin up, use ignore, or come back with real arguments outside of crying about 2011 Sunspot Influx.

    As for the OP, you obviously did little research or have zero insight into the team. I listened to Ed Reed live, and he said Joe and the whole team need to play better. Letting the media take a hatchet job to the the players and you believing it is what is pathetic. Suggs just came out and defended Flacco. That team is united.

    As for its fan base, look at it like this; even when there are 71,000 fans at the stadium there are always going to be a few tools. Like family members, I'd be amazed if everyone registered at this site gets along great and agrees 100% with every member of their family and extended family.

    Logic and truth.

    I understand and I've definitely noticed a difference since back in the summer when guys like me, CaptainSilver, Excel, GOTA, Ravor, and Shas all came over.

    I can deal with trolls. What I dislike and find obnoxious are the guys who claim to be fans, but want to see the Ravens lose and dislike pretty much every player on the squad. However, those guys are pretty easy to weed out and if you feel the need to put them on ignore then I guess that's what is necessary. Honestly, I just don't even really pay attention to those guys' threads because they are all full of a whole lot of stupid.

    Agreed. I was a lurker over here for a few years. I posted every now and then, but like you I wasn't interested in posting on more than 1 forum.

    I also agree that this is really the only Ravens forum available. I think there may be one more site out there, but I've lurked on it a few times and literally there are hardly any posters.

    Re: This season just needs to end

    There was two distinct exoduses from Sunspot - there was the initial one that occurred this summer I think, when a number of longtime posters just got fed up with how that board had become. Then a second one occurred when Sunspot started charging to view it's pages, and a bunch of posters got wind of this forum.

    The second exodus seemed to include a ton of people that the first exodus was looking to get away from. Mostly the "bi-polar" as it was put, type posters, and some that are outright trollish.
