Thumbs down Ratbirds..?

Okay, so I'm a Ravens fan and just came on here for some discussion about Sunday's game (and maybe some friendly trash-talk) and I noticed everyone calls the Ravens the ratbirds. I personally think this has got to be one of the worst disses I've ever heard. Our name is very historic and relevant to our city (just like yours) and ratbirds doesn't even rhyme with Ravens (unlike Squeelers, Stealers). Seems like a petty attempt to make fun of our team's name, not funny.

Step it up Steeler fans, c'mon.

Yeah, "Squeelers" and "Stealers" are both a laugh riot.

historic shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Ravens. Your history is in Cleveland. Traders, post Browns, felons, nope none of those rhyme either. Looks like your stuck with ratbirds.

but a raven/crow is infact a "rat bird" just like a squirrell is a "tree rat", and a chicken or turkey is a "yard bird".

ravens hang around at dumps and landfills for food or eat carrion and roadkill on the side of the highway.

while relatively smart for animals of their size, they are dirty, disease infested, and widely considered a nuisance.

doesnt have to rhyme. "stealers" and "squealers" doesnt even make sense.

Would it make you happier if we called them the "Gayvens" all the time? That rhymes. Is that more relevant to your cities history?

And they'll be led by Rayturd.

I can already see him hammin it up and acting the fool to make sure that he gets his camera time.

Why the networks always feel the need to continously show him during his antics is beyond me. I get tired of seeing it. The guy just annoys the crap out of me!
