Doesnt pay to be a Raven!

Ravens' Fuller charged with running gambling house

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Baltimore Ravens cornerback Corey Fuller was charged with hosting high-stakes card games at his house, the site of a shootout three months ago.

He was released on $5,000 bail Tuesday night after a search warrant was served at the house. The felony charge carries a possible five-year state prison sentence and $5,000 fine.

State law allows card players to gamble up to $10 a hand, but sheriff's spokeswoman Linda Butler said Wednesday some pots were worth thousands of dollars, and games were held several times a week.

When some 20 law enforcement officers broke up the game, called ``Georgia skins,'' they seized ``thousands of dollars'' that were on the table, Butler said.

``We have been made aware of the situation. We are gathering information,'' Ravens spokesman Chad Steele said Wednesday.

Fuller's agent, Roosevelt Barnes, did not immediately return a call.

Authorities were unsure if the shooting was related to the card games.

``It's being explored, but at this point we don't have anything to suggest that,'' Butler said.

Fuller, a nine-year veteran out of Florida State, reported exchanging gunfire with an intruder outside his home in January. No one was injured and about 20 shots were fired. Fuller offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

The investigation began in February, and an undercover agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement attended some games.

Eleven people were at Fuller's home at the time of the raid, and eight were arrested, Butler said. Five others are being sought on warrants.

All but one were from Tallahassee and none of the others charged was an athlete.

Thank you for your irrelevant opinion.

We are the Raiders of the East, after all.

Of course, if this is the best they can come up with, they need to try harder.

HAIL, to the King of the Brackets!

I know of MANY card games where the wager per round is more than $10.

Are the Ravens trying to pass the 80's Cowboys in bad off field behavior?

Are you a professional halfwit or talented amateur?

I know they don't consider Baltimore as part of their team history, but I always pull for them. I'm doubly happy as my Baltimore Stallions/CFLers throwback helmet just came in the mail today.
