Ray Lewis raps against NFL Lock-out
Baltimore Ravens Ray Lewis uses some true wisdom and strong words to emphasize how he feels about the lock-out. He did beat a double-murder charge in 2000, so you know he keeps his ear to the street. “We gotta remove our pride, play the game”, “People live through us”, and “Watch how much evil [crime] prevails” are a few quotes he used in a recent interview with ESPN. Check out the full excerpt, courtesy yardbarker:
“Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game,” Lewis told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.
That’s because, Lewis said, the NFL lockout affects “way more than us” — the owners and the players.
“There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us,” he said. “Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I’m not talking about the people you see all the time.”
When asked why he thought crime would increase if the NFL doesn’t play games this year, Lewis said: “There’s nothing else to do Sal.”
Sunday is Day 68 of the lockout, which is now the longest work stoppage in NFL history. Lewis said the current dispute boils down to a matter of ego.
“It’s simple, we really got to remove pride. Seriously,” he said.
