Ravens quickly delete tweet with royal gaffe
Call it a royal gaffe.
The Ravens social media team quickly realized its mistake Tuesday after tweeting an image of Queen Elizabeth II with the team’s logo photoshopped across her countenance to look like facepaint. The tweet said, “The Queen is ready for us to #FlockToLondon.”
The tweet was a clear attempt to promote the Ravens’ game against the Jaguars Sunday at London’s Wembley Stadium. As the queen might say, it was a creative attempt, but not exactly the formula for social media success.
Questionable (Q): This remains the most dreaded player designation. By definition it means a player is “uncertain to play.” How uncertain is uncertain? There is no percentage or measurement scale, which leaves this classification rather vague. Whether a player ends up active or inactive often comes down to a game-time decision based on how he feels on game-day morning or how he performs during warm-ups. Final inactives are due 90 minutes before kickoff.
Doubtful (D): The doubtful designation means a player is unlikely to play that week. Rarely does a player labeled as doubtful end up playing, unless he experiences a major turnaround before game time.
Each week in the Saturday blog, I run down a list of key fantasy players, by position, who appear in the Friday injury report, along with the injured body part as listed on the report, player status and any relevant developments or insight. The primary fantasy positions are covered (quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end).
