I figured he was speaking for himself and planning another trip to Atlanta.

Because the criminals won’t be on the field playing football.

He was stupid, for sure, but there is no absolute assurance that Lewis did any killing, any more than the other thugs he hung out with.

There were a bunch of people out there - thugs, for sure - fighting. It could’ve been anything and anyone in a general melee. Could’ve even been “accidental”.

And my nephew knew his younger brother in (Catholic) HS a few years ago. Lewis is very big on keeping straight and making sure his brother does so.

Maybe you should watch the show on Lewis on NFL Network. I believe it was subtitled “Ray Lewis Coaching Tree”.

I saw him over the weekend saying this in an interview. He looked maniacal. Think he’s been hit in the head once too often.

Maybe he's on to something. Those who have seen Raiders fans will know what I mean. Going to the games leaves them less time for drive-bys.

sorry guys. He’s absolutely right. Studies show that in cities where sports get blacked out, wife beatings go up. I’m not kidding.

Never saw that show - interesting info.

How’ve you been, OlLine? How’s the family?

Ray Lewis is the best linebacker and possibly the best defensive player in the history of the game of American football. He does not (obviously) have any sort of an advanced degree in philosophy and if that’s what you’re looking for you should be looking somewhere else.

He’s a psychopath, regardless of philosophy. Some people like that kind of man, apparently.

What do you bet Rush Limbaugh quotes Lewis and then Morning Joe will blame Rush for saying it and being racist?

Far from obvious that you possess any clue as to what a psychopath is.

I don’t doubt that you’re far more familiar with psychopaths than I.

He’s right, you let that many NFL players loose with no curfews and there will be gun play in every strip club from Miami to LA....mark my word........Ray on the other hand uses a knife.

Exactly! Hundreds of thugs with lots of money and nothing to do.

Yeah, the players won't have anything to do. No practice during the week, no games on the weekend. They'll be bored.

Seems to me a logical supposition. I am sure there are hundreds of thousands of criminals who are also avid NFL fans. The NFL broadcasts 12-15 hours of games each week (not overlapping). I doubt the criminal fans would utilize that time knitting otherwise.

This is not to say it is smart to state this publicly. Most people look at it as bomb throwing related to union negotiations, which it probably is. But it is still possible to make a stupid statement that is also true.

According to his theory, the crime rates should increase in the off season. That may be true, but if you remove NFL players from the statistical population, the crime rates don’t change.
