Fans in the New England region have been getting a bad reputation for their antics following their teams losses. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith became the latest target following his teams win over the Patriots in the AFC championship game. Smith’s younger brother Tevin died in a motorcycle accident early in the season. Some Patriot fans took this as ammunition to attack the Ravens wideout on twitter. Smith sent out the following tweet on Tuesday morning. Played a lot of games since my brothers death and I never received as many rude tweets after a win than Sunday…yet NE fans cry about class It is unfortunate that Smith was attacked over his brothers death and showcases one of the problems with social media. Smith and the Ravens will play against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Currently Las Vegas lists the Ravens as a 4 point underdog.
PLAYERS: Torrey Smith
TEAMS: Baltimore Ravens

  • IT TAKES ALL TYPES OF PEOPLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO ACT THE WAY THEY DO. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO ACT. NO CLASS AT ALL. A PERSON LOST HIS BROTHER, GIVE IT A BREAK. I MET TORREY SMITH AND THE GUY IS TOP SHELF, HUMBLE AND VERY EASY TO TALK WITH, OTHERS ARE JUST JEALOUS.
  • A good deal of football fanatics believe nothing is off-limits when it comes to the love and devotion of their home team. Not only does this put NE fans in a bad light, it shows their total lack of class and and the worst kind of sore loser and "sour grapes". Did I mention total ignorance and complete lack of compassion?
  • I AM FROM BALTIMORE BUT A TRUE PARTRIOT FAN, BUT I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED ABOUT SUNDAY'S GAME THEY RAVENS WANTED THAT WIN MORE THEN EVER, AS FAR AS TWEET EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOP PATS ARE A TRUE RESPECTED ORIGINATION THEY ARE JUST BRINGING THEIR SELF DOWN TO EVERYONE ELSE LEVEL SCUM, THEY WIVES NEEDS TO STAY OUT OF THEIR HUSBAND CAREER, I'M SURE THEY DON'T BUT INTO THEIR CAREER, EX HOOTER, VICTORIA SECRET MODEL ETC... LOVE TOM BRADY HE REALLY NEEDS TO STOP BEING A PANSY AND PLAY FOOTBALL ALWAYS AFRAID OF GETTING HIT THANKS KAT
