      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 »

The Silent Thumbs Down

Something has been a bit off today.

After realizing I had another day on earth and the Mayans didn't have it all figured out, I went to work. Things seemed different, but I couldn' t quite put my finger on it.

Then it hit me after travelling around town. Where is all the PURPLE??

Maybe its just me, but this Friday has not appeared to be a Purple Friday. In fact, it looks more like an off season Friday. I guess the people have spoken nothing.

I have felt it to, i go in various buildings inspecting and not much purple at all. Then i noticed me myself as i usually am eager for sunday and there is no eagerness at all. Like it is almost a formality to the season which is we are not play off material and if we even eek out one win of these last 2 is a enormous feat which is very rare. Maybe the all black uniforms this weekend is fitting as a sign of a end to winning this season.

I feel you, I'm still a Ravens fan of course, but I dont have much hope for the upcoming game. I haven't even talked crap to our opposing teams fans since we lost to Pittsburgh 3 weeks ago.

I wore my Ravens cap today. But it's not purple.

I think a lot of us are not expecting much this game.

I really hope I'm wrong.

The beautiful thing is that we are some of the most passionate fans in the NFL and one strong performance well have everyone jacked up again. If Ray is able to play, when he is announced, everyone will go crazy and hopefully the team can carry that energy into the game.

As much as some fans have said they've giving up hope, reality is they haven't. I'm betting i won't see one brown paper bag in the crowd Sunday. I'm betting the 1st offensive TD will be met with the same type of roar Tucker got for his game winner.

Fans just aren't happy and if voices like Reed, Flacco and Pollard speak for the entire team, those guys aren't happy either.

As a purple Friday enthusiast I still wore my purple dress shirt today. But I can honestly say this team has broken my spirit and enthusiasm with their play. Between the injuries on defense and lack of execution on offense...I'm exhausted. Thank goodness for a special teams.

Nope, none on yesterday.
I just have felt with all that has been going on for the last week...Purple Friday was like meh.
I have also felt less and less enthused as a fan after each loss since Pitts.
One just gets burnt out after week in and week out of cheering, screaming, going crazy at the games and watching the team fall apart. Its been a rough 3 weeks...
But I do agree with an earlier post. Just win...and the juices will get flowing again!

Maybe yesterday was just something different due to the upcoming holiday. I was at BJ's this morning and people everywhere were rocking the purple. No shortage of fans in those shoppers. I did see one guy in a brand-new Broncos hat though.
