A sad time and I realize he came up from the streets and his loyalty to his friend was stronger than to a dead stranger. But I've never forgotten and I'd wager there are many others that haven't and would confront anyone who tried to employ him if he was going to be on TV.

Thank you. A voice of reason. It should also be noted that lewis settled a civil suit out of court with the two families. Some believe the sum was $10,000,000. Innocent men don't do that and it has long been speculated that Lewis did more than just watch these two kids get stabbled to death. I won't miss the punk and for those that will...check yourselves.


Psst, those that try to tell people how to remember this or that athlete... check yourselves.

I'm heartbroken. He's done so much for Baltimore. What a loss, but his decision to retire to watch his son play football in college and spend time with his family is respectable. He'll continue to do great things off the field. It's crazy to think the Ravens have never existed without him.

Most are saying Ed is going to not be in Baltimore next year. Time to turn the page, I suppose. *sigh*

This. The guy is a crook and an accessory to murder. Not someone I want my kids to use as a role model. I don't care how good of a player he is, where did his white suit go????? If it were you or I, we'd still be in prison. He also settled out of court with the victims family in civil court. Good riddance I say, all the Ray Lewis love around the league makes me want to wretch. :pukeface: :pukeface: :179419: :cry:


Like he's the only athlete who's done something wrong? It was a long time ago, and he is responsible for so much good in Baltimore in the past decade or so. There's no replacing him, ever.

Nor did any of us who appreciated Lewis' play on the field and attempts to change himself off of it. So those of you who want to be sanctimonious blowhards over Lewis' retirement, feel free... just quit telling the rest us how to remember him.

Another ditto. People can change, and I really have believed that Lewis's personae now is more than just an act. I know I'll remember him more for his murders on the field than the alleged one off it.

Ray Lewis expected to sign a multi-year deal with ESPN effective upon his retirement.

Quote:

Ravens' Lewis set to join ESPN in retirement


ESPN is on the verge of adding Ray Lewis to its talent lineup, Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reports.

Multiple sources have said the Ravens linebacker is close to signing a multi-year contract with the network. At ESPN, Lewis is expected to have a significant role on the network's Monday Night Countdown program. As with most ESPN NFL talent, Lewis would also be featured on multiple platforms, including ESPN Radio.

No formal announcement from Lewis or the network is expected until the conclusion of the Ravens season. Lewis announced Wednesday that he planned to retire at the end of Baltimore's season. The Ravens host the Colts on Sunday in the AFC WIld Card round.

An ESPN spokesperson declined comment when contacted Thursday morning.



Ray Lewis to sign with ESPN

Article done by Ashley Fox on Ray Lewis complicated legacy. Some of the same debate seen in the two posts here in the NFL Forum.

Glad Ray will still be in the public spotlight where he belongs.
