Ebron getting harassed by lions fans

Recommended Posts

Social media...and more importantly...person to person social media, has helped those who are self absorbed, angry, vindictive, delusional, and self centered, to act our their life in a manner that gives the illusion of grandeur. 

 

It used to be those *s who yelled at the players by sitting next to the dugouts, or behind the bench in the NBA. Now those *s, have a direct line to players. Yes, the player put themselves out there. But there are no excuses for rude behavior.  Saying, "Hey, your in the spotlight, you have to be thick skinned", is simply saying "It's the persons fault for becoming famous". No, it's selfish rudeness...period. BTW, players are also rude on social media. 

 

If one chooses to ignore what these media avenues are doing to our society as a whole...over time...then one is not paying attention. If you have grown up totally in the time of the internet, you would be unable to see what is being lost. It is profoundly sad.

I'm an old man so I'm clueless...what the heck could they possibly be harassing him about??  Geez...get a life, move on!

 

It was pretty bad... every time he tried to interact with Colts fans, the thread would just turn into a bunch of whiny Lions fans calling him some of the worst names you can call a person.

People like Ebron who are technically a millenial, but close enough to the older generation (Gen X?) to have grown up without social media until it was the giant it is today have this sort of problem.  You have those accounts to interact and converse, but most people anymore just want to say anything and then not be held accountable for it.  So if you can't distance yourself from the 99.9%  of trolling trash, stay away from it altogether.  Not really worth your time.

I think he deleted all of his social media accounts too. I cannot find him on Instagram.

He did. I loved his IG stories. You could see how close this team is. He was always hanging out with everyone. His kids were adorable to.

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.

Didn't you just describe 70% of all Twitter users?

Laughed like heck when i saw article that Ebron is giving up honey buns in order to pursue Gronks record.

  I think Ebron and Brissett do as much as any player to keep this team loose and having fun.

  They both seem like they are having more fun than anyone else in the building.  Its infectious too.

  What a pickup by Ballard.  Last offseason, Ebron wasnt getting much attention.  Now, he's looking like a top 5 TE.

 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.

 

I will admit he has a lot of drops still.  But that's the biggest problem I see with him.

He put his accounts back up.

Maybe he can block all Detroit area codes like that NE forum does.

Ebron is 26 years old.  Social media started becoming popular around the time he was 10.

 

The person you are thinking of is me, I'm 36 years old and it didn't start getting popular til I was in college.

If he has three more years like last year he could be a hall of fame candidate. He couldn’t of been that bad in Detroit if his numbers are that good after only one year as a colt.

I just realized Ebron is the guy on the team everyone likes to hang out with. Today he is with Kenny Moore on a helicopter ride. He must be a fun guy to hang with. He is always hanging with different players.

I think most people would be better off without Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.  I use this site cause I like the Colts and LinkedIn but I pretty much have quit using LinkedIn since I am done looking for jobs and don't care about the rest of the garbage on there (retiring in 2 years or sooner if I loose my job :thmup:).

 

He will be just fine without it.

Oh, I do!  We adopted him 5 years ago and he knew nothing about football.  I quickly made sure he became a Colts fan!  He was here just 2 weeks and I took him to the Fan Fest in Louisville and we met Adam Vinatieri and Matt Overton...and Blue, of course!  He's been hooked ever since.

 

He's 13 and was more stoked meeting the cheerleaders :)

That is awesome! I’m thinking about adoption in the future, would love to be able to help a kiddo somewhere out.

Yeah I know, every fanbase has their obnoxious fans. Visiting other websites I have seen it (some worse than others) but they also have a lot of good fans to your point. I just do not like the way some of their fans are bashing Ebron. He is not only a great redzone player but a great guy off the field.

Man, your post reminded me of back in '13 I went to the Arizona game where the Colts got blown out by like 40 points & anyway a buddy and I were sitting like 10 rows in front of the loudest, most obnoxiuos, drunkest Colt fan I've ever encountered... 

Made being a fan during the game embarrassing far more than the outcome of the actual game, which was bad enough itself...

 

So anyways, good point, no one wants to be an embarrassment to the rest of "their particular teams" fanbase, but inevitably it would seem there are those that just can't help themselves...

When I went to the Sunday Night game here in 2009 vs the Patriots I was around a few Pats fans and they were actually cool. We were drinking beers talking about the rivalry for the most part. Sometimes it is just who one comes across or what you read in general to sway the way one thinks.

Oh no doubt, one of the more embarrassing aspects of that Arizona game was how cool all the Cardinal fans were. They were being 100% cool & the beligerant jerk was the fellow Colts fan...

They thought they would be better off without him that among other things is why lions always have and always will suck.

    • 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....
