No...not really. You imply that everyone on here stating he's guilty is close minded and a bigot.

Why is it, people who are so "open-minded" have such a problem with bigots? After all, shouldn't "open-minded" people be open to other view points? After-all...bigots are people too and part of the kaleidoscope of diversity...right?

He was tried in a court of law and paid the penalty given. Anything else assumed is exactly that. Assumption.

If he did something wrong he'll be judged accordingly as we all will. I don't hold myself higher than another man based on evidence I don't have. Apparantly the majority here feel the need to do so.
Not saying to go along with it....state your opinion...prove your point...go for it. Just don't say people are close minded....it is hypocritical at best.


Okay..personal pet peeve rant over.

Carry on...carry on.

The thread is about what do you think of when think you think of Ray Lewis. So far NOBODY has said great defensive player.

Yes, one of the greatest linebackers of alltime.


BUT, he got away with murder, or, at least, being with the one that did commit the murder. He then lied about what he knew and he admitted that as well.

This is what we do know; Lewis lied about the events of that night and that is well documented. He did a plea deal against the other 2 men which were his friends. The white suit many witnesses said Lewis wore at the party and during the fight, has never been found. After the fight, which lead to the deaths of those 2 poeple, he told everyone in the lemo to keep their mouths shut and don't say nothing. A female eyewitness in the lemo, sometime after the fight, said Lewis did not have a white suit on at that point and also said that they stopped and threw an hotel laundry bag in a dumpster although she didn't know what was in it. Those are absolute facts recorded during the trial. Those facts alone were not enough to get convicted of murder but were enough to make Lewis turn on his friends. Don't forget, the white suit was never found. Wonder why?


Copy and paste below

Garland(Lewis's defense attorney) said Lewis' only crime was to tell his companions after the brawl that led to the deaths, "Keep your mouth shut," and giving an incomplete statement to police.

"He fully acknowledges his responsibility for those acts," Garland told Bonner after the plea was entered.

Lewis' defense attorneys admit that the NFL star gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings, but there has been other testimony that suggests Lewis participated in some kind of cover-up:


Duane Fassett, the driver of Lewis' rented limousine, reluctantly admitted on the stand that after the brawl Lewis told everyone in the stretch Lincoln Navigator to "just keep your mouth shut and don't say nothing."

Evelyn Sparks, who was riding in the limousine, said she saw another passenger dump a white hotel laundry bag into a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant. Prosecutors say the bag contained Lewis' bloodstained white suit, which has never been found.

Sparks also said a photograph of Lewis' entourage, taken at the Cobalt Lounge on the night of the killings, was destroyed by Jessica Robertson, a woman described as Lewis' girlfriend. "She said she burned it," Sparks testified.

Again, these are facts of the case and not my opinion. You make your own educated opinion. I know I have mine and thats all I will say!!!

That is well said. Thats why I stop short of saying he is a murderer. The evidence points in that direction, or like I said, at minumum, he witnessed the murders and then told all involved to keep there mouths shut. He is guilty to some degree we just don't know how much. I honestly dont think he set out to kill anyone or thought his friends would, but after things spun out of control and his thug friends did the deed, he panicked, thinking his life was over, and tried to cover the whole night up. It almost got him but as we know too well, a great defense lawyer and bumbling prosecuters trying a celebrity, usually means mistrial, or getting off with a slap. Down deep Lewis knows exactly what happened that night and he will get what he deserves, either now, or in the end, thats how life works. Your sins will find you out, they always do!!!

Great Post.

I guess if you live in Atlanta you don't forget. It's all we heard about. I don't even remember who was in the super bowl. Maybe St. Louis won with Kurt Warner. Anyway, when I see him, I think of that stupid dance (which reminds me of someone breaking out of jail and saying I'm free) and the murders that night. I don't think he killed anybody, but nobody was charged so we don't know who done it.

Maybe Knowshon will hurdle him for a T.D. and Peyton throw for 500 yrds.

I will say this, aside from whatever happened in Buckhead: He is easily the most overrated, self promoting, stupid dancing idiot that I have seen in pro football in my generation. It irritates me that people think he's some great motivator & speaker. He should have retired 5 years ago when he was semi-good.

I can live with the fact that he was not convicted and he cutout playing and seemingly put his life straight.

That and he is incredibly exciting to watch play.

Hammer down ray

I think Ray is one of the greatest LBs to play the game. I also think he got away with being an accessory to murder. That's just my opinion.
