      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Fireman Ed Stepping Down...

Sad day for any Jets fan. The man was fun to see on tv, and do wish him the best.

I can't believe other Jets fans would bash this man in the comments section of that post. What, because he used to root for another team before being a loyal Jets fan for nearly 4 decades? Because he decides to call out other Jets fans for their crass behavior?

Ridiculous. And sad.

I am not a fan of these so called Super fans, every fan represents in their own way.
Yes fan behavior can be really boorish and the man does not deserve to be heckled.

Jets fans are some of the cockiest people in the nfl (with the exception on Phillip Defranco) I don't know about another humble jets fan besides Ed

While I was never fond of him, I hope that people will stop bothering him now. He's been a Jets' season ticket holder longer than most Jets 'fans' have been alive. Plus, he did lots of volunteering with children.

*shakes head* I hope there are a few Jets "fans" who feel a twinge of guilt today for causing this, especially to a fan that has stuck by the team through thick and thin.

I wonder if any of our superfans know him?

He's been a Jets fan since he was 16 and people still hold the fact that he was a Dolphins fan over him?? Is everyone held accountable for their preferences at 16? I bet he's been a Jets fan longer than most of those commenters have been alive.
