Part of that beauty is having a huge bank account. For you and I, not so much.

If you think he was there, and you think he saw the whole thing, then you think he's guilty. It's called guilt by association. If he was there, didn't do anything to stop it, and then covered up what happened, he's just as responsible for the deaths as whoever killed them.

But his bank account trumps justice. That's how it is. Doesn't mean we have to like it, or root for the guy.

Too early to argue with you Tom. I like Ray Lewis and will be sad to see him go. ?I think the man he became is an inspiration and I could only wish 99% of the men in this world could learn from their mistakes like he did.

I like watching Ray Lewis play football. He's an amazing player- and by all accounts, an inspiration and mentor to the younger players he interacts with league wide.

His involvement and subsequent coverup/lies about those two murders taint it for me though. I won't ever root for the guy to win. That being said- I hope we see a Harbaugh Superbowl- and I hope like heck the AFC wins, because I was raised by a father who taught me to always root AFC vs NFC (because he had grown up a fan in the AFL days). Just how I roll.

Our dads must have went to the same school.

Default Ray Lewis

Does anyone else have a problem with Ray Lewis, and how he is worshiped by the media? He was convicted for obstruction of justice in a double murder case, and has 6 children from 4 different women. How is this guy such a role model? Why are Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods disliked by so many people and Ray Lewis is practically universally loved?

There's no doubting he's an all-time great football player, but this has always bothered me and I wondered if other people share that opinion.

He has turned his life around and over to God. I respect the man for that.
