NFL  > General NFL  > Ray Lewis: Crime will increase without an NFL season.
May 28, 2011, 01:45 PM
Where would humanity be without the NFL? Sounds like Ray Lewis is trying to prove a point. A majority of the NFL players would be out committing to a life of crime if it weren't for the NFL.

How many fans out there will resort to a life of criminal intentions without the NFL? If so, please write a report for your school project: What I plan to do this summer, fall, while on vacation from the NFL.

Well it seems that one of the local sports bars was shut down because of excessive amounts of Mexican drug gangs and the violence they brought with them, most of the fights that broke out were in the evening following Thursday, Sunday, Monday night football. Seems the owners were in a Catch-22, they couldn't refuse these gang members because that would be construed as racial. So they continued to serve them until the day there was a shooting at the bar, it also turned into an embarrassment to local law enforcement. After that happened the city took away their alcohol license and forced them out of business. Maybe without football there will be less violence?

Didn't Ray Lewis dodge a murder charge a few years back?

This summer I'm going to load up my John Deere mower and cut crop circles in all the overgrown football practice fields. Aliens from outer space have told me that this kind of crop commentary will persuade the NFL to come to a CBA. After all didn't it work for all those farmers in Ohio that destroyed their crops and drove up food prices with signs that read "LEBRON DON'T LEAVE, WE LOVE YOU, YOU CAN BE KING OF OHIO IF YOU WANT".

After the Super Bowl, Ray and his posse confronted some other gang, the result was that 2 members of the other gang were stabbed to death. To keep himself out of prison Ray ratted out his friends. Ray was destined to a life of crime, he proudly displays his diploma from the College of the Criminally Inclined ( Also known as U of Miami ) above his 9mm and 2 kilos of Cocaine.

Tampa Bay player Aqib Talib is one of those holding true to the Lewis prophesy. Aqib fired a gun at his sisters boyfriend. Way to go Aqib, may I suggest that if you are going to carry a gun maybe you should take some lessons and spend some time on the firing range, you missed. Now you are being charged with attempted murder, and whatever promise you might have had at being an NFL star just went down the drain.

Ray just means that without practice and Sunday games he will have to revert back to a life of crime to pay his bills!!! It cost big buck to keep the tank filled on his Escalade!!!

Yep! I supposed you could say West Side Story was a gangsta flick too, but I always think of the Warriors first since there were so many gangs (and creative ones too!).

West Side Story is a personal favorite of mine. The story was great and the songs were fantastic.

Tonight, Maria and There's a Place for Us are some of the finest songs ever written.

Today Julius Peppers dad, a deputy sheriff was arrested for possession of cocaine and thrown in jail. So in keeping with the "West Side Story" theme going on right now, Poppa Pepper would like to sing " Theres a place for Us" to his dearly beloved son.
