My guess is his time in Detroit was so bad he had some confrontations with lions fans. They need to move on. It seems he has grown up and matured. They are really pathetic.

Every time Ebron posted on Twitter, salty Lions fans would attack him non-stop. Literally non-stop. Social media really has ruined things for people. Gives every * a voice that’s too afraid to say anything in real life.

I live in Michigan, and yeah the Lions fans hate him. I always tell them it’s not his fault the Lions over drafted him ahead of Odel Beckham.

He was so entertaining on twitter. TJ Hockenson doesn’t have a chance. 

 

Ebron always responded and had fun with colt fans. Detroit fans had to ruin that.

They do attack him non-stop...And he responds. Which is something you can’t do with trolls if you want them to stop. :( I didn’t notice his Twitter was gone, but I don’t blame him.

I saw something on a colts fan page they shared and it had made up stuff that the colts made him shut it down and the groin injury is going to keep him out longer then expected.

 

He should just block and ignore them.  Since he can’t help himself it is probably best he took it down.

 

All this is going to do is motivate him more. Maybe you should take him in fantasy football lol.

He would mention something every once in awhile but not much. Most off his stuff was just having fun. Like with the honeybuns. Most of his political tweets were more on society not on politics.

He deleted his Instagram also. I enjoyed his IG. He always shared cute stories with his adorable kids and he was always hanging with other colt players.

Sucks, but probably for the best honestly. He responded to the trolls and that only keeps them coming back.

I wouldn't even have a twitter if I was a professional athlete honestly. Then again I don't have one even as a regular guy. I get actors/actresses having them to promote their brand and because fan popularity is so important there, but for athletes it only seems to be a distraction or downfall.

Sad. I'd be ok if Twitter just went away alltogether.

 

I don’t think I would. I really like Twitter for what it was meant to be...instant information. I think if you use it as such...you can avoid the downside.

Let's face it, other than Barry Sanders, Detroit football possibly has less success in their total history than Cleveland.    They don't know what good looks like.

  If they don't want him, he is very welcome on the Colts.  They really need to move on.  Kinda  like if we would dog Dorsett in NE.  It just serves no purpose.  Kinda like going to an ex's wedding and heckling them during the service.  It just aint cool.  Not a good look.

I've never twittered.  I only created a facebook account because a nitwit disgruntled tenant got cute and created one in my name, forcing me to do same.

  The bright side was reconnecting with college and fraternity friends , but after the initial spurt, it got annoying.  I dont care to see pics of every meal.  I dont care.  I dont need to see stupid pics that people think are artistic.  They arent.  And i dont need to be bombarded by political views, ads, and just trivial junk.'

 I dont do the facebook thing anymore either.

i just dont "get it."

I also think it is time for the Lions fans to back off.   But to be fair, in his time in Detroit, he took several jabs at fans that called him out for his horrible play on the field.

I see that, and I like the instant info from credible news sources too, but it's the ability to have every anonymous clown chime in that brings it down. I dumped all social media years ago and I've never been happier about it.

If he's having trouble ignoring the trolls he's better off leaving. No need for all this negativity for a guy with successful career and a young family. He has so much more important things going well for him than yapping back at random *s online.

some people really enjoy attacking people online.   They make themselves seem like the majority when in reality they are the loudest.

block them

ignore them

don't engage them

The more famous you are, the more crap you have to endear especially online and social media. Sometimes it hurts to read some of the crap people write about you and it's hard to ignore at times. But it may be for the best and for Ebron's sake. Why would you want to read that stuff every day, delete and move on. I'm glad Ebron is a Colt.

I haven't been active on Facebook for years. My wife is though...and she is constantly posting photos of us and tagging me.

 

I don't have an IG account. Twitter is really the only thing I use.

Also not his fault that Detroit's coaching staff didn't know how to use him.

 

Quite frankly I think it's dumb to go after athletes on twitter anyways.  I mean I would hate it if I had bunches of people who have never even done my job in their life going onto my twitter feed to tell me that they think I suck at my job.

 To start a career, in his time with Detroit he had top 5 # of catches in NFL history for TE's.
 A lot of issues still fall on him, but no doubt the team around him and the coaching staff was lacking something. 
 Many of those issues were still there last season, he just got in the end zone in our system. Kudos.

My sister and bro-in-law live in Fenton (relatively close to Detroit) and we were up there hanging out watching football at a bar, and a stat popped up on TV showing Ebron with another TD, and the people in the bar were all mad and said, "That's nonsense. Why couldn't he do that in Detroit?!"

 

LOL - they are insatiable.

I don't have a Facebook or twitter account, just a LinkedIn account where I have limited professional interaction. This forum is plenty enough to voice my opinions. I do participate in WhatsApp groups with my cousins and college friends, should we decide to catch up some time.

 

I have asked my daughter to do the same, and stay away from all social media as she is getting into middle school now. People that know you, know to text you and where to find you. That is good enough for me.

    • we are in a division that likes to run too.   the titans and texans ranked 7th and 8th in rushing yards, while the colts and jaguars were 19th and 20th.  that was down year for the jaguars, the previous year they were top 5
    • People love to prognosticate. My crystal ball broke so I don't have any insight into the future, but Ballard is using particular criteria (data) that has shown to be better predictors than merely guessing. Let's watch to see whether his approach to dealing with the unknown is better than other teams. I think we will be surprised.
    • Remember,  we are not debating whether Spring is doable.   I've stated from the beginning that I agree.    It's not as bad as some here think it is.    It's doable,   No question.   We are debating whether Spring is preferable, or desireable.    So, when you write,  that you don't think you have to say more about an issue,  any issue,  I'm sorry,   but NO!     You DO have to say more.  A heckuva lot more.    Because YOU have the burden of proof.    My position is the Industry Standard.   Your's has, by comparison,  a handful of examples.   Some are recent.   That's great.   But I view that as a nod to the position that it's doable.    You view it as a possibility that it might soon become the norm.   I'm happy to wait until that actually happens.   As to your primary argument.....    that all the prep work has been done,  and if you make the changes in winter,  that the GM is not up to speed on what the current scouts and player personnel people have done.    Except there is this......   Your argument that you yourself use to others here who complain that changing in the spring is bad.   To quote you....   it's just one draft.    One free agency period.    And there will soon be another,  and then another....   and another.   One season is nothing in the grand scheme of things.   That is what you wrote (roughly) to posters who think making the GM change in the spring is outright terrible and stupid.    Which I strongly disagree with their positin.   Your argument makes my argument for me.    I want the new GM in the building ASAP.    So he can sooner evaluate his players.    His front office.    His scouts.    The entire program.   Waiting until May or June just delays that.    I want it to begin ASAP.   I'd expect that he can and would be able to make some level of difference in his first free agency and draft.    Plus,  I think you way, way over-dramatize the handicap the new GM has arriving in January.   He's the GM.    He's already got a ton of information in his head,  and in his notebooks, his binders.    He's not in as much of a bind as you like to portray.     So, with your desired scenario, this draft could be used for a system that the new GM doesn't even want to run.    Like Chuck running a 3-4,  when Ballard wants to run a 4-3.    Like Chuck wanted to run a power running game and a deep pattern passing game.    While Ballard favors a zone running game and a get rid of the ball quick, move the chains offense.     In your preferred scenario,  you're the one who is burning the first year the GM has,  not me.     I see little of the benefits and mostly an approach that screams....   "Gee,  I hope this works out."   By the way,  I didn't want this post to end without addressing one of your main points.   Your paragraph that starts with this:   My Point:  There are always good candidates...   same is true for head coaches and coordinators.    I'm sorry,  but I'm going to STRONGLY disagree with that argument.  And I think you'll retract that.    Every so often you'll see an article about how did the class of GM's from a previous year turn out?   Or head coach hires?    I used to tell posters here who hated Pagano that the class of head coaches that included Chuck,  that all of the other coaches got fired before Chuck.    That Chuck was the best of his class.   And that happens with GM's too.   A class gets hired,  and quite often most of them, sometimes all of them don't work out.   I believe my position has far more facts to back that up.    There isn't always a Sean McVey.  There isn't always a Kyle Shannahan.   There isn't always a Josh McDaniels.   There aren't 32 good GM's, or 32 good head coaches,  or 32 good offensive or defensive coordinators.   That's why so many teams struggle for years to get those spots right.   So, no, I absolutely reject the idea that there are always good candidates.    Sorry.   I know you believe what you're writing.   But honestly, this feels like one big thought experiment. Like you're trying to make a case for something you really don't believe,  but you're trying to see if you can make a good argument anyway.   And yet I know that's NOT the case.    That you really, honestly do believe this.    That's what I find so astonishing.    There's lots of opinion,  and not a lot of evidence to back this up.    As I've said from the get-go....   I think this is doable.    I just don't think it's desireable or preferable.  
    • To your last paragraph....   yes,  I agree that if a GM,  any GM, inherits a bad roster,  then no matter how OK his draft picks may be,   they will likely stick on the roster.   But if you're a GM inheriting a poor team,  and you draft players that are only somewhat better than what you originally had,  then the improvement in the team will only be so good.   Again,  from 4 wis,  to perhaps 6-7.    That wouldn't be bad.    That would be reasonable.   But when you suddenly pop to 10 wins,  including 9 of the last 10 in the regular season,  and you win on the road in the playoffs,   then there's got to be something more there than just the GM's new guys.    Those guys have got to be good.    You can't do that well simply because they're better than the previous guys.    They're much better.    Yes, the coaching staff is better and the systems the team is running are better,  but so are the players.    They have to execute.    And we did.   Better than we thought possible.    Certainly better than when we were 1-5 and looked like a candidate for a top-10 or even a top-5 draft pick.    The players are good.   They may not be great yet,  but they're really good and much better than what we had.    The results are all the proof you need.   Again,  thanks for the exchange....
