Most new users don't bother reading our rules. Here's the one that is ignored almost immediately upon signup: DO NOT ASK FOR FANEDIT LINKS PUBLICLY. First, read the FAQ. Seriously. What you want is there. You can also send a message to the editor. If that doesn't work THEN post in the Trade & Request forum. Anywhere else and it will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.
If this is your first time here please read our FAQ and Rules pages. They have some useful information that will get us all off on the right foot, especially our Own the Source rule. If you do not understand any of these rules send a private message to one of our staff for further details.
Everybody around here was bummed out that the Ravens lost this past weekend. I stopped watching football a few years ago but still feel something for my old team so I felt bad for the people in my office. Then one of them pulled out some old pictures including a playoff game from five years ago with Ray Rice. One coworker said "this was back when it was okay to like him" and someone replied "you still can - as long as you're not a woman" and I went right back to remembering why I stopped caring/watching the team/football.
I don't think it makes you weak. I agree the NFL should have done more about Ray Rice and others that have hit women and done other bad things. Hey, I once stopped being an Eagles fan for awhile while the dog murderer was on the team. But still, not all the players are criminals or women beaters or dog murderers or what not. Some do a lot of good for their communities and what not.
The Pats, Tom Brady, and Bill Bilicheck are still the Pats, Tom Brady, and Bill Bilicheck. I suspect Anyd Reid will find a way to blow the game again them. I think it will be the Saints vs the Pats in the Superbowl. I would not bet against the Pats in the Superbowl.
