Ray Lewis unwittingly punks his fellow NFL players
Accused murderer and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis had this amusingly ironic warning if the NFL cancelled it's season this Fall because of the lockout....
“Do this research. If we don’t have a season, watch how much evil, which we call it crime, watch how much crime picks up when you take away our game.”
It's as if NFL games represent societal safety valves, without which we descend rapidly into chaos and anarchy. That's so Orwellian sounding, like Two Minutes Hate from "1984". If America cannot stand without football, we deserve to collapse.
If there is no NFL season, idle players, not the fans, are far more likely to cause a minor national crime spree. 21% of NFL players have criminal records, far above the national average for men the same age.
