BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Ravens revealed the results of the fan’s voting for the franchise’s “All-Time Team” on Friday. Former receiver Derrick Mason was not pleased about being left off the list.

Mason took to Twitter Sunday night to express his displeasure saying that “some people are just so ungrateful.”

Mason was beat out at the wide receiver position by Anquan Boldin and Steve Smith Sr. It’s tough to argue with Mason considering that he is the franchise’s all-time leader in receiving yards (since moving to Baltimore in 1996) with 5,777. Mason also tops the all-time chart in receptions (471) and is third all-time in receiving touchdowns.

The 46-year-old Mason also had the longest tenure with the team of the three, playing six years in Baltimore while Boldin and Smith Sr. played just three each in the purple and black.

That wasn’t the only surprising outcome of the fans’ vote as at the quarterback spot, Lamar Jackson got the nod over long-time QB Joe Flacco. It was a close margin (3,967 votes to 3,906) but still a surprising one given that Flacco led the franchise to its only Super Bowl title in the last decade and just the second all-time. Flacco is also the franchise’s all-time passing leader across many statistical categories. Jackson, while coming off of a nearly incomprehensible season statistically, has played just two years in the league.

    “some people are just so ungrateful” and you are one of them, Derrick Mason, who apparently does not appreciate all the fame & fortune football gave him.

    You need to remember younger fans never saw you play. Some players remain part of a city after they leave and some don’t and are forgotten. You have made Tennessee your home and they probably remember you better. Enjoy that!
