      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 »

Bad news bears 1970s version

Honestly I like sports documentaries more than movies. 

Do you like that documentary about 1972 olympic games

Fact: Ballpark scenes for Major League II were filmed in Baltimore stadiums.   Camden Yards was the Indians home field and Memeorial Stadium was used for the visiting teams park,and was home to the last baseball team to play there, the O's AA Affiliate Bowie Baysox which played there until there stadium there was ready.

I like the directors version of Hoosiers with the actual game between Milan and South Bend Central.   Also like MIghty Macs about the Immaculatta Women's Basketball team which was the first power house in the sport

Since you've asked, my favorite sports movie is Slap Shot; I can recall parts of this movie to anyone, and the Hanson Brothers stole the show!

Cinderella man. Excellent boxing and historical flick 

Also based on a true story, unlike the Rocky series.

Rocky was actually inspired by a real fighter,  but Obviously that's where the truth of the movie ends.

Rocky had the worst defense I've ever seen.

Rocky would totally lose to Mike Tyson, Rocky was just an actor.

About Invincible, they forget that Vince Papele already had already played professional football in the World Football League for the Philadelphia Bell in the mid 1970s.

There are so many good sports movies. One recently that I enjoyed was "Trouble with the Curve."

1989 Field of Dreams, no sex, no violence, and rare cursing.

So you hate it?
