PHOENIX — Ray Lewis … spoke on ESPN’s Pro Bowl pregame show Sunday and shared his black-and-white opinion of deflategate. Simply put, Lewis thinks the Pats were cheating. …
“Every time we talk about the Patriots, you have the Patriots fans … you get all the talk about the jealous of them and all that. I won two Super Bowls, I’ve been Defensive Player of the Year, I’ve been MVP of the Super Bowl, I’ve went to New England and won … so I’m not jealous of them at all,” Lewis said.
Lewis then went on to talk about the integrity of the game being compromised by the Pats and how they need an asterisk for cheating. …
“Now we’re back at another place where we let a team go into an AFC championship, and if it’s proven that they played with deflated balls … because if it’s not cheating, then the Colts should have had the same option to play with the same balls. So we’re at a place now where we’re going to celebrate an organization once again, put an asterisk by it, because they went into a championship game.
“The integrity of this game! That’s not the way you go into games trying to win football games.”
Is this the real life? Or is this fantasy? I’m caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.
Seriously, what dimension am I in? Did we really just witness Ray Lewis saying these things? Did the grinning morons he sat on that panel with really just nod their heads and let him go off like this unchallenged?
The Ray Lewis who beat his chest with blood-stained hands and cried that everyone was rushing to judgment on him without knowing all the facts in his double-homicide case … who actually managed to summon the will to talk like HE was the victim … already is declaring the Patriots guilty and slapping an asterisk on a championship they are yet to win.
This despite the fact that we are now so deep into this non-story that Nancy Grace could do a whole season of it: “Deflategate Investigationgate: Day Eight.” The NFL can’t bring itself to admit it hasn’t the first damn clue how or why or even IF some frigging football lost some flipping air, but Ray Lewis already is finding the Patriots guilty on all charges and sentencing them to a life sentence of wearing the scarlet * with no chance of parole. If it were coming from anyone else, it would be an outrage. But out of Ray’s gasping, self-righteous piehole it’s laughable.
Thanks, for the input, Ray Lewis. But I have neither the time nor the inclination to be lectured on integrity of the game from a man who won a Super Bowl with enough deer antler spray in his system to help him pull Santa’s sleigh.
The only good thing to come out of all this is when these media dopes continue to chase ghosts in this non-existent scandal, the dumber they look. And Patriots fans who call them out and go on the attack with withering fire from the machine gun of truth, they are being heard. So continue to fight the good fight. Go forth my minions. Do my bidding.
And don’t forget to Embrace the Hate.
