    Some people seriously need a life. Dude can't step on a freaking skateboard in his own driveway without a Ravens fan flipping out about how he's not "getting ready" for the championship game?

    Do people not realize that football players are human, and if they spend too much time preparing for games they will be burned out, mentally exhausted, and perform poorly?

    To be honest, if I was in Ed Reed's position I would be upset by this too, I would probably go to Flacco personally first but I don't need my QB doing something that he himself says he can't do that risks an injury.

    Give it a couple of days and skateboard all you like after you hang a donut on the scoreboard against the Patriots.

    Doesn't Flacco's mansion have room to ride the skateboard inside, in privacy?

    :D

    Totally agree..

    Look these guys are important parts of a team that's working for some of them a last chance at winning the superbowl, or their second ring. This reminds me of when we went to calgary for a couple weeks to do some work. We were almost finished, and going live, the night before going live they guys went out and stayed out till 3AM. I blew a gasket cause the next day I'm carrying 3-4 hungover guys. It wasn't the fact that they went out and drank, they just exercised poor timing and judgement.. We went out 3 days after go live after *ALL* the work was done.

    Ed Reed really isn't his neighbor... that was a joke. Coming from Reed's criticism of Flacco after our game.
    You know, it really does suck that these athletes can't live a normal life without anybody with a cell phone taking a picture or spreading a rumor or tweeting the world about whats going on.

    With that said, I think its really dumb of Flacco to be getting on a skateboard for the first time in his life to see if he could ride one. Sounds dumb, and it really kind of is... but honestly it's so easy to fall off of one of those (particularly if its your first time) and land on your arm or wrist funny. You don't do this stuff in the middle of the playoffs when you are one win away from the Super Bowl.

    I get what you're saying but I literally know someone who rode his kids skateboard a few feet down his driveway, fell, and broke both arms.

    BOTH ARMS!

    How he managed this I will never understand but Joe Flacco goes down and breaks his wrist or something and the Ravens are starting their version of Matt Leinart in the AFC Championship Game. There's a time to learn if you can balance on a skateboard and there's a time not to. I'd say the time to learn is after you've been eliminated not days before you play for the right to advance to the Super Bowl.

    That's just me though.

    I could be mistaken, but I always thought pro teams put in some clauses in the contracts preventing players from water skiing or mountain climbing etc. IIRC, I think a baseball player slipped & sprained his ankle ice skating a few years back.

    Ever watch World's Dumbest? There's always some assclown trying to skate. Inevitably he falls and breaks an arm, wrist, collar bone, etc...
