Ray Lewis is no leader
I have to take issue with all the hype surrounding Ray Lewis. To me, Ray Lewis is a great football player who used his money to get out of a murder charge...
The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant.
On April 29, 2004, Lewis reached a settlement with four-year-old India Lollar, born months after the death of her father Richard, pre-empting a scheduled civil proceeding. Lewis also reached an undisclosed settlement with Baker's family.
Now, the media is making Lewis out to be this great leader because he does some sort of ridiculous pregame dance. He's no leader. Lewis has 6 children from 4 different women, yet has no problem playing himself off as this deeply religious man. He's obviously religious when it suits him and the TV cameras are on him. Guys like Walter Peyton and Reggie White were what I call leaders. Lewis is a piece of trash and I hope the 49ers whip them on Sunday. Don't buy into the national media's hype. Think of the little girl who is without a father and the family of the other man Lewis and his two friends killed over a barroom fight. Hardly a role model if you ask me.
