What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

I am 22 years old, was born in Annapolis, grew up in Maryland, attended college at the University of Maryland, and still live in the same great state. For my entire life I've been a diehard fan of the Orioles and Terps, but if there is one thing I cannot stand about the great state of Maryland it is the RAVENS!!!! I don't know how I can explain how much I dislike that team. It's like when they came around I was semi-excited, I thought to myself, I'll be a Skins fan to the death, no matter what, but I'll pull for Baltimore's team too cause I like Baltimore. It seemed like no one really liked the Ravens for a while, until they made their playoff run and won the Superbowl. And since then all Ravens fans, or atleast the one's I'm friends with never shut the hell up about the stupid Ravens and how bad the Skins are and it drives me freakin nuts!!!!!! I mean in my opinion most Ravens fans are traitors because they had to like another team before they liked Baltimore, and then they changed allegiances. At my friend's party on New Year's Eve I met this guy wearing a Ray Lewis jersey who said he converted to the Ravens after being born and raised a Skins fan, I wanted to throw up, and it wasn't because I drank too much. There's this other guy I grew up with who didn't even like football in highschool, and now he's this huge Ravens fan, just cause they're doing good this year and he talks shit all the time, drives me insane. I dunno if it's just me, but their fans, atleast the ones I know, are just flat out obnoxious and it's caused me to hate a team from my home state! If they win the Superbowl this year, I just don't know if I'll be able to take the bragging that's going to come. Oh yeah, I already posted this picture once, but it was at the end of a thread, so I dunno if anyone saw it, but this is what happen to me when our boys lost to the Ravens the last time they played them. Trynna Go??? I'm the one in the purple, I had to wear that outfit all day, and I had to go to class, it was a horrible day. Does anyone else share my opinion of the Ravens, or am I being an unreasonable, angry, angry Redskins fan?

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

I share your thoughts completely. I even pulled for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl because I figured it'd be cool to have a team from my home state win, but I never expected it would turn the majority of their fanbase into a big bunch of D-bags.
Now, I really can't stand them and I'll be so pissed if they somehow in the SB because all my friends from college (Salisbury) will act like it was the greatest accomplishment of all time and I will never hear the end of it.

I've been saying for a week that if the Super Bowl somehow ends up being the ravens vs the cowboys I honestly don't think I'll be able to watch a minute of it.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

many have heard me complain about this a lot. I go to UMD right now and there are raven fans everywhere. I can't find a good skin fans. No joke there are more fans of other nfc east teams on the floor than there are skins fans. I would say there are only two true skin fans, myself included. THere are like 3 eagle fans and like 4 Giants fans. Its horrible.
There are a ton of raven fans. You are right; they are the most annoying people in the world. They just don't shut up. I know i am going to hear about them and how bad the skins are today when i head on down to the umd basketball game and my friends who are raven fans are there.

The thing is, some of my best friends are the raven fans. Like I said we are going to go down and watch the game tonight. I guess a common interest in sports is a good thing.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

I don't much care about the Ravens, since I live in Philly.

But I can relate about the Eagles a little bit. I have lived here since I was 4 years old, moved here from Alexandria VA. My dad raised me on Gibbs and the Redskins, and I became a huge fan.

Growing up, all of my friends were big Eagles fans. And they would taunt me about liking the 'Skins. Of course I had Super Bowls to point to, so I could shut them up pretty easily. But still, their attitude towards me has given me a deep-rooted hatred for the Eagles.

It's a little easier to hate a division rival though, so it's not quite the same as the Ravens situation. But still, I get the concept.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

I don't have much of a problem with the Ravens. I will especially be pleased if they have to play a ...excuse me... :vomit: ....(sorry about that)....NFC East team and beat the crap out of them.

I'm thinking Bears versus Chargers game, which would be alright since my wife is a Bears fan and LT won me $250 in fantasy football this year.

That is much worse. Us skin fans down here laugh when we hear, "beltway rivalry". They aren't our rivals. We don't care if they win or lose. They actually get happy when the skins lose.

My raven friends know i won't watch a skins game with them. Its just too annoying. Probably b/c the skins are so bad this year. However, i can hear them cheer when something bad happens to the skins. I can hear them from my room with my door closed, with my true skin fans by my side. It actually pisses me off. I think they think i am just joking.

but i digress. My point is, we aren't there rival so it isn't as bad as your situation. And you are vastly out numbered.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

Its hard to be a fan of a team that is a perennial loser and for some 10 year old kid in the DC area the skins have been a perennial loser while the ravens have won a super bowl and are perennial playoff team. I can easily see why that kid would be a ravens fan. People like to follow winners and right now the ravens win and the skins dont.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

The other thing that pisses me off is how easy the Raven's schedule was this year. They did have quality wins against SD and New Orleans, but come on they get to play the Browns twice every year!!!!! I wish the Browns were in our division. The Steelers sucked this year, they got to play them twice too!!!
Buffalo 7-9
Cleveland 4-12
Oakland 2-14
Tampa Bay 4-12
Atlanta 7-9
They got to play six games against teams with losing records and only 4 games against teams with winning records.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

Actually, I hope the Cowpukes do win it all. I hope the Eagles or Giants don't make a miraculous run.

Parcells then retires, and they become pushovers for a decade like us.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

Same here Matty. I won't be happy until all NFC East teams are eliminated. Thank God Qwest field is so loud, because if it weren't for that 12th Man, I don't think the Seahawks will beat the Cowboys.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

I think this is a great thread! I hate those losers, and I know exactly why they root so hard for the Skins to lose. It's because these guys are ex-Skins fans! They feel so bad about it subconsciously that it breeds an irrational hatred of the Skins. Seriously, my question is, if you are over the age of 20, who did you like before the Ravens? Did you not watch football? Did you not have a team? Did you root for Indy? In many cases you had people loving themselves some Skins while we were winning superbowls, then jumping ship just in time for the 2000 season. You can like whoever you want to like, but you will never understand what it feels like to root for one team your whole life - the same team your father, uncles, and grandfather rooted for. So enjoy your little superbowl, and if you win this year enjoy that too. But Ravens fans as fans can't look me in the eye, and unless they were born after 1996, never will be able to.

Seattle will beat Dallas as long as their D keeps playing like crap. I would just shove Alexander down their throats all day.

Re: What happens if the Ravens win the Superbowl?

If both Giants/Eagles and Dallas get knocked out this round, I'm good. Out of the three, if I had to pick, I'll pick the Giants to advance.
