Ravens Fans - was the blackout intentional? (1 Viewer)

You would seriously have to be a booger picking moron to believe that. Doesn't surprise me Suggs does.
Ray Lewis has said it too. I wonder how many of the Ravens think this? I guess it is also possible neither of these guys believe it, but they hate Goodell and thus are happy throwing it on him.

Lewis was just trying to jumpstart his TV career imo, i doubt if cornered he seriously believes it. Suggs on the other hand.

 
The blackout was an attempt to slow down The Ravens and hand The Niners the Super Bowl win.

Elvis is alive and was at the Super Bowl.

The moon landing was staged in the parking lot of the Super Bowl Stadium.

Roger Goodell performed an "Alien Autopsy" at halftime of The Super Bowl in The Ravens locker room.

At the last minute Bigfoot and The Loch Ness Monster had to cancel their appearance in the Super Bowl halftime show.

and....

Sarah Palin can see The Super Bowl from her front porch.

Hey, who killed Kennedy?

 
It seems to me if the NFL was going to plot to have the Ravens not win a super bowl there were easier ways to do it. And for that matter, they ould probably have rather done it the first time they won what with all the Ray Lewis off the field stuff.

This is the kind of stupid crap that makes it embarrassing to be a Ravens fan that I thought we were finished with now that Ray has retired. Billick started it all, totally stroking the players' egos with an "Everyone is out to get you because you're so awesome and scary" line of shtick. Ray is such an egomaniac, that he is literally unable to conceive of any action taken by anyone, anywhere, that doesn't revolve around him, so he bought in. And far too many Baltimorons are horribly insecure people, so they picked right up with the "Everyone hates Baltimore and is out to get us".

Really? Who cares about Baltimore enough to hate it? Harbaugh has done a good job of eradicating this mentality, but it's obviously not quite dead.

Here's another point. Anyone foolish enough to argue that the blackout was done to harm Baltimore is suffering from outcome bias. Why would a stoppage in play automatically benefit one team over the other? After all, the Ravens had come out after the previous stoppage (halftime) and added to their lead. Why was this second stoppage suddenly a Ravens-buster? In fact, you could argue that as the demonstrably older, less fit team, an extra stoppage in play would be to their benefit, because it would allow them to rest more. And as a more veteran team, they would be better able to handle the disruption, compared to a young team led by a QB making his 10th NFL start.

I wish Suggs would let it go, and let die the last of the stupid, insecure culture that Billick created and Ray furthered.

 
And here's another thing, if the NFL really wanted the Ravens to lose, wouldn't they have told the refs to call more penalties, maybe like the questionable no PI call in the end zone that won the Ravens the game?

 
Suggs is an idiot. Ever heard him talk? If not, do so. That will remove any doubts as to whether he is an idiot or not. Helluva football player, but an idiot.

i have not seen anyone defend him yet, so i'll assume you speak for most Ravens fans

 
Of course the blackout was intentional. Can you think of any better way to influence the outcome of a game than blowing a transformer and embarrassing the league and even our country during a worldwide major televised event? I didn't think so.

 
I much prefer the story that it was Sean Payton who caused the blackout. He had motive, and intimate knowledge of the underworkings of the Superdome.

Ray Lewis has said it too. I wonder how many of the Ravens think this? I guess it is also possible neither of these guys believe it, but they hate Goodell and thus are happy throwing it on him.

I'd advise against backing Lewis into a corner, we all know what "didn't" happen to that one guy who tried.

I think Lewis should concentrate on solving an old murder first. ESPN too should be trying to figure out why an accessory to murder is one of their analysts.
 
My lord, this stiff is HIlarious.

Ever since this started last year... what people (including Mr. Lewis) don't understand is that New Orleans HAS blackouts, especially downtown and the lower Garden District. This occures from time to time.

It's not just lights, water mains blow out, we have drinking water shutdowns. In St. Bernard the CDC just discovered a flesh eating bacteria in the drinking water.

This is New Orleans, we don't take care of our infrastructure. The infrastructrue we don't fail to take care of the Feds are responsible and they DON'T take care of it (ie the levees).

There is corruption, mismanagement, laissez faire attitudes intermixed with governmental bungling. It's both conservatives and liberals at fault. I was at the Super Bowl and I was laughing then because I knew all this had finally come home to the pocket books of the people responsible. Oh well at least the lights came on fairly quickly, you could have been treated to a real keystone cops routine if it hadn't.

ETA: The Superdome is built on an old graveyard - true story. Take of that what you will but many blamed the Saints losing there for years on that, even to the point of having voodoo "cleansings."

How many Superbowls have been played in New Orleans?? How many times have there been a blackout? If this area is known for its occasional blackout do you think a multi billion dollar company would have something in place in case this was to happen. So I'm assuming most here believe there's absolutely zero chance of this happening? You also believe the NFL is a squeaky clean operation right?

I don't think the NFL has or had any idea this was possible.

It's not a zero chance in New Orleans, it's a minimal chance but a chance. I think other cities it's more like zero. But in New Orleans it's definitely possible.

I will add this was our first Super Bowl in a long time. This is the first one post Katrina, so things have definitely been more like this since that damned infernal deluge.

Ooh! Did we find someone who agrees with Suggs/Lewis!?

1. No

2. Who cares. Ravens won, SF lost and the league has caught onto Caep and the window already closed.

 
Uh Terrell, Pssst it's week five. You know the FOLLOWING season. You guys just laid an egg to the Buffalo Bills and gave up two bills on the ground.

This is the same corporation that's going to have this giant event in a blizzard prone frozen wasteland that lost power to the biggest city in America? Blackouts happen.

Well played.

I blame the blackout solely on the sheer amount of juice Beyonce's ridiculous halftime show sucked from the grid, frying the relay.
