Ray Lewis is a thug

I watched the beginning of the Baltimore Ravens – Pittsburgh Steelers game on Monday Night Football.  Though I didn’t get to watch most of the game, I did get to see the pre-game coverage including Raven’s linebacker Ray Lewis give one of his infamous “pep talks” to his teammates.

Lucky me.

He screamed to his teammates, “Whenever someone touch the ball, someone’s getting knocked out.” I didn’t attend the University of Miami like Ray Lewis did, but I think what he said was grammatically incorrect.

Not that I should be the one to criticize anyone’s grammar.

It’s also completely stupid. If he wants to knock someone out, maybe he needs to forgo football and become a boxer or a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. Knocking someone out is actually one of the intended goals in either one of those two sports. That is not the case in football.

In the opening kickoff, Steelers special team player Andre Frazier lay motionless on the field with a suspected spine injury. The game was delayed while medical personnel removed his face mask with a screwdriver and strapped him to a backboard. He was then removed from the field on a cart.

Watching at home, it was a scary thing to see. I can only imagine what his friends and family were thinking while watching Frazier being strapped to a backboard and taken off the field.

What about Ray Lewis? Did it make him happy? In the world of Ray Lewis, is a spinal injury even better than a knockout?

It turns out that Andre Frazier is fine. In fact, he may even play in the Steelers next game. Unfortunately, injuries are part of the game. They are an unfortunate byproduct of the game being played at it’s highest level. That doesn’t mean players should step on to the field with the intention of injuring their opponent, especially when the intended injury is a brain injury. That’s what a knockout is. It’s an injury to the brain.

Does Ray Lewis even know that?

  1. This entire post is such slanderous filth, completely sullying the name of Hall of Fame Linebacker. That so called “thug” is one of the most respected men in football today and that speech is only suppose to accomplish a feeling of determination. Then to have the nerve of asking if ANY person in this world would feel a sense of pride if a man would have a spinal cord injury is absolutely insulting. No football player ever wants to see another get hurt and correlating the two is such biased bullshit. Obviously, you never played the game.

    1. FACT:

      Following a Super Bowl party in Atlanta on January 31, 2000, a fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. Lewis and two companions, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were questioned by Atlanta police, and 11 days later the three men were indicted on murder and aggravated-assault charges. The fight occurred about 200 yards from the Cobalt Lounge at 265 East Paces Ferry Road in the neighborhood about two miles north of downtown Atlanta where Lewis had been celebrating. The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found. District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant. A knife found at the scene did not have any fingerprints or DNA. Lewis subsequently testified that Oakley and Sweeting had bought knives earlier in Super Bowl week from a Sports Authority where Lewis had been signing autographs. Baker’s blood was found inside of Lewis’s limousine.

      FACT: Ray Lewis is a liar, a murderer and a hypocrite, who just like a former NFL player who thought he’d get away with murder. (Ray, remember O.J.?) There is no statue of limitations on MURDER, and despite that B.S. you told Shannon Sharpe, God is gonna getcha! SHAME ON YOU and the discredit you “thug life niggas” bring to the NFL!
