      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 »

Purple Punishment

Look for me on the Super Bowl

As some of you know, I am in the military and have been recently deployed on my 5th tour to Kuwait. Myself and two of my soldiers from Baltimore were approached and asked to appear for a shoot of us introducing ourselves saying something for our families and something about the Ravens. We did the filming today and for a short 30-45sec clip it took about 15 minutes. We kept saying things wrong. Laughing at the wrong times. The clip may or may not show for the SB because only a few get picked.

Just really cool and exciting experience to know that you may be seen by just about the entire viewing world and telling your families and your team how much you really care. So look for me on Sunday. I tried to shout out the flock in one take but they said that wasnt going to fly :(

Anyways, I am standing in between the two soldiers. My name is Staff Sergeant Robert Smith. I also give a wink at the end for my family back home.

We are standing outdoors in the day time. Most of the other ones were filmed in a broadcast trailer. Also one of my soldiers screams how much he loves his girl!

I said something like Let's Go Ravens, lets bring it home for 52 and get that second Lombardi!
