I'm from MD and I'm (kinda) cool with the Ravens. I may even LIKE the Ravens.

I'm a Skins fan with no ties to the area and I hate the Ravens
I'm a Skins fan with no ties to the area and I am ok with the Ravens
Ravens don't bother me in the least, but I dont live in the DC area any longer. If I was back there and I had to listen to them all the time, Im sure my stance would be different.
I'm a Boldin fan, always have been, was actually hoping the Skins signed him a few years ago when he wanted out of AZ..... and I also like how Ed Reed plays the game, bigtime player.
I think it is a must for Ravens fans to dislike the skins, but it is not a must for skins fans to hate the Ravens.
I cant stand the Ravens for a number of reasons. Right now they rank behind Dallas and Philly, in that order. I even rooted for the Pats to beat them, and I can't stand the Pats.
I'm a fan of Torrey Smith. It seems he's played even better after the death of his brother. I like and respect people that get stronger after tribulations. This is also why I have respect for Lewis for his turnaround the past decade.
Overall I do not care about the Ravens though. And Ngata didn't have park his obese *** on RGIII's knee like that!
I'm in the last category. No ties to the area so I had no idea of the DC/Bmore hatred until I joined Extremeskins.
Well, first off their coach is a jerk. Second, I only watch the Ratbirds games on TV and their fans seem like a bunch seem like a bunch of pre-teen jackasses and hooligans. Third, they do that obnoxious "OOOOOOOOO" like at the Orioles games during the national anthem and that is extremely disrespectful.
So .. yeah .. I hate the Ratbirds because of their coach and their fans. The DC area only needs one team. Not some fly-by-the-dark-of-night moving van team that has no tradition. IMO, their one SB win was lucky. And we beat them this year.
There's the much talked about Baltimore inferiority complex that their fans inherently have. Baltimore fans will always have a chip on their shoulder.
I do believe part of their contempt for the Redskins is based on the fact that after the Colts left, Jack Kent Cooke tried to corner the Baltimore market by shoving the Redskins down their throat and in the mid 90's, tried to block the Browns move to Baltimore. Say what you want, but you'd probably hate the team that tried to block your city from getting a new franchise.
I don't really care about the Ravens all that much. I like Ray, I love Ed Reed. I won't care all that much if they lose, I won't care all that much if they win, either.
I'm a hater from Maryland.
The ravens are a stolen team, named after poem written by a guy who isn't even from their city. Their star player should be in prison. And they have one of the most arrogant and whiniest fanbases ever. (every game they lose is because of bad officiating)
I am so sick of hearing how every team they play is afraid of them, the Steelers / ravens rivalry is the greatest in sports and the AFC north is the toughest hardest hitting division in football. Then there are the cries that Ray is the greatest player to ever play the game and Reed is the greatest safety ever. Heck, last week one of the radio show host morons was even using the word "dynasty". Really??? I swear they think the NFL started in 2000.
I will say they have had good management and coaching. They have been pretty much consistently competitive since coming to Baltimore. But that won't last forever. And when it ends, their loudmouth fanbase will dwindle. HTTR!
Thank God it's hockey season!

The executive thing is just a personal thing. I'm not saying what he did was wrong, just makes me feel like a minority in my hometown. This is a place where they were teaching kids how to sing hail to the redskins in 91, now all our county buildings are lighted purple.. It's all personal to me, I don't expect everyone else to feel the same way.
And yes, all teams have band-wagoners when they win, this includes the redskins and the rg3 craze, and yes I hate them too.
Finally, this is by no means the only reason I hate them. Many other reasons have already been mentioned: obnoxious fans, Ray Lewis, etc..I have several friends of other teams (Cowboys, steelers, seahawks, giants, broncos) who all agree the Ravens have some of the most annoying fans.
