I don't know about u guys, but i really am gettin sick and tired of other people havin some gripe over guys goin to other teams... Praising them for bein good players, but when they leave "Oh, i was never really high on them"...or "There ok players, not all that great though"...and "they're not that good, and they'll have a bad year next year". Why can't people just say "Hey, thanks for what u did for our team and good luck wherever u go" instead of just bashin them or watever and sayin they suck or they're no good... Gimme a friggin break... If they went to another team, they went to another team, and you'll go out and get a replacement, who might even be better, so what's the big deal?

For example, Ravens fans seemed to be delighted bout the fact that they got Samari Rolle, and are glad that Baxter is gone. How bout just sayin "Hey Gary, thanks for what u did here, and we wish u luck with the Browns" "Though i'm very excited that we got Rolle and think he'll do great in our defense"... And please stop givin me this b.s. bout Baxter takin the money or watever cuz first of all, Rolle got pretty much the exact same deal as Rolle. The Ravens offered Baxter the same amount like the Browns, so if Baxter went to the Browns, then that means somethin went sour with the Ravens, and they both moved on...The Ravens got Rolle and apparently he's better than Baxter according to them, so what's with the constant trashing of Baxter? U said u guys got a better DB, so what's the problem? Jeez...

I have no ill will against my boy, in fact I will preorder his jersey from buffalobills.com as soon as it becomes available, they got a heck of a player, and it will be easier for me (hopefully) to see him play instead of taking the train to Cleveland.

We all wished Bernie well. I think we all still route for Tim Couch a little too.

I think that just goes to show the kind of fans Baltimore has. No offense, but show some decency. Before Baxter signed, I was in the Cowboys forum congratulating them on their signing of Anthony Henry. It was cool to see other fans getting excited about a player we had to convince other fans was any good at all. The Bills got themselves a good QB, but an even better man. Kelly's work ethic and level head throughout some tumultuous times always impressed me. I'm glad the man who is replacing him is equally respectable.

If a player leaves your team through free agency, you can't get mad. It's a business, and you can't be mad when a business decision does not go your way. You wish them luck, and move on.

I think cleveland has always done a nice job of recognizing and cheering for most of its players that have left. I can't think of any Browns that come to mind as becoming "evil" once they left town other than of course the former owner whom I shall never mention. Even recent players with some issues like KJ and Warren are wished well in their new setting. In the other sports I can only think of Albert Belle and Boozer as receiving the fans wrathe for leaving. All around I believe this is the BEST sportstown and with SAVAGE in control we will show it on the field for a change!

It's funny but if you look at the posts they made b-4 Baxter left(when they thought he was staying)he was a great player....now that he left them he is nothing more than a solid no.2 corner...your right they are very fickle and not very knowledgable.

In my defense, a lot of my trashing was immediately after the signing, i've since calmed down and yes i'm happy for baxter. ditchdigger gave me the best explanation about why baxter isn't in baltimore, i'm happy for him if hes happy. i think you guys are getting a heck of a player too, a better safety than corner but still a good CB. just never match him up against TO Wink
