For one, some people are seriously misinformed about the type of person Ray Lewis is.
Beyond that, iconic college athletes leaving a program after four years and iconic professional athletes finally leaving after they've been a part of the team the entire 17 years the franchise has existed are just two flat out different situations, if you can't understand that idk what to tell you.
And in no way is this me "denigrating" Greivis Vasquez. He is my favorite active athlete (Ray included) and that fucking shot by that POS Lucious was by far the worst sports-related moment of my life, including Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff last year. But its just not the same.
Because he let his friend murder a person.
two people - and they were drug dealers.
Ray was doing God's work that night - keeping narcotics off the streets of Atlanta.
God blesses Ray Lewis
Ok I shouldn't even respond to trolling, but what happened (TWELVE YEARS AGO) was: a group of guys started shit with his group (not the other way around), two men were stabbed (which Ray didn't even see happen) and they fled away. Literally his only crime he committed was not immediately naming names. And like I said this was TWELVE YEARS AGO. The amount Ray Lewis has given back to the community in the time since then has more than made up for it.
Ask Bill Warble's family if they thinks Ray Lewis is a good person (google it)

That story makes that NE loss, somehow, even more heart wrenching. I also liked the soldier deployed in Afghanistan who wore Ray's jersey under uniform on all missions, and eventually gave his Purple Heart to Ray Lewis.
Bugs me a little. When I interned at the Ravens wayyyy back when we had a lot of injured soldiers visit practice and Ray would barely take the time of day to speak to them unless of course the cameras were right behind him. One of the more disappoitning things I've ever witnessed.
Didn't he get convicted for trying to cover up a murder? He threw evidence away. But its ok, bc he has a lot of tackles and dances when he comes out of the tunnel.

No yall are right, any person whos friends commit a crime when they're 25 years old and they don't immediately snitch on them is a bad person, regardless of whatever else they do the rest of their lives
his agent was negotiating the espn deal in November, and dan Patrick had this on his show then.
Lewis is the best defensive football player I have seen in my lifetime. The discussion should start and end there. If you are defending his off the field crap that he was convicted of btw, you have no creditability. Boomer was good on this topic this morning on WFAN mocking the idiots on ESPN calling him a hero.
Ray Lewis' wiki page had a section for the murder trial that was edited out after he retired. True story.
Uhhhh it was murder. He plead guilty to obstruction of justice IN A MURDER CASE.

As a big fan of "if the glove don't fit you must acquit" I've always been disappointed "if the suit's blood covered THROW THAT SHIT IN THE DUMPSTER BITCH HURRY!!" never really took off.
A murder which he HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH. I would hope that if you're friends fucked up and kiled somebody who had just started a fight with your group and had weapons themselves that you would at least for a minute think about trying to help them out
LOL @ these people who talk about Ray like they even care that it happened.
They wouldn't be saying this crap if he was on their team.
Ray Lewis is to Ravens' fans as Joe Paterno is to PSU fans
Exactly. He made some mistakes with the people he was hanging out with when he first came into the league, but that incident shook him and he started doing the right thing. He was in no way a part of the murder, and let's be honest, I'm not condoning it, but the people who were killed probably weren't productive members of society.
I don't care if he murdered someone. If he didn't, great. If he did, how terrifying must it be looking across the line and seeing a guy who killed someone.

Omg I cant even. Yeah, not snitching on your friends for killing two scumbags who were trying to kill you in the heat of the moment is the exact same thing as condoning the rape of children over multiple decades
Seems like you have proof of what happened.
Should I inform the police and track your IP to let them know?
Got damn you are a douchebag
Jman I wish you put this effort into mafia bud
