      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 »

They lost their touch about 20 years ago. Talk about a "player" that needs to retire. It is now just sad and painful to watch. I guess I am showing my age because I remember when SNL was actually funny.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Agreed. I really miss the days of Dan Aykroyd, Jim & John Belushi, Dana Carvey, Michael Myers, Billy Crystal, Robert Downey Jr., Al Franken, Christopher Guest, Anthony Michael Hall, Chris Kattan, Will Ferrell, Jon Lovitz, Norm MacDonald, Dennis Miller, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray... just to name a few... :P[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]However, I've said this to people dozens of times.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Keep in mind, in those days, comedy TV (and TV in general) was just 'coming of age'; so, all those jokes your great-great-grandfathers passed down to your great-grandfather and your father... all of that material went unscripted, unpublished... and SNL did a great job of putting it into great skits.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Now, the feeder system for new comedy has came to a screeching halt and we're stuck with the equivalent of toilet humor. Kind of why I enjoy watching shows from the 60s, 70s, 80s and early 90s. Everything after that, just recycled garbage.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]This skit... I give 4-out-of-10 stars. Just cause I liked Keenan back in the day on "Keenan & Kel".[/i][/font]

Wait. When we win the Superbowl, are they going to have Flacco host an episode?

That might possibly be the most awkward episode of SNL ever made. No offense to Joe, love the guy, but it would definitely be funny!

This was irritating to watch in the least, and insulting at its worse.

I mean seriously, does anyone here think that Ray Lewis is disingenuous about his faith or that Ray's "passion" is all an act?

So what if a guy wears their heart on their sleeve?

I have nothing against them spoofing anybody. That is what comedy is about. That was just very poorly written. One other thing about comedy, it is supposed to be funny.
