For all the craziness that is associated with Ray Lewis(notes), the man sure does seem to speak the truth on big issues. The latest one? How the lockout might affect our society as a whole, and what it might do to the nation's crime rate. No, he isn't just talking about the players. Ray thinks if the lockout continues and there is no NFL season, crime will increase because people will be so distraught without one of their favorite pastimes. This all came out from his ESPN interview, and here was exactly what Ray said. "Do this research if we don't have a season -- watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game. [...] "There's too many people that live through us, people live through us," he said. "Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I'm not talking about the people you see all the time." The man has a point. Football fans will have to find other things to do without their favorite game being played if the NFL does decide to go with this lockout, and Lewis is just pointing out facts about this. If any sport or big event was dumped, it would force people to look for other things to do, and I think that's the point Lewis is making here. Just add it to the growing list of reasons why the NFL lockout would be a bad thing. http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/sh...rime-will-increase-if-NFL-has-?urn=nfl-wp2110 I'm a big fan of Ray Lewis, but this is quite possibly one of the dumbest things I've ever heard out of an NFL athlete. So crime is going to sky rocket because there is no football and people live through these players?? Really Ray? Maybe to some low life thug who has nothing better to think of if football isn't around, but to any normal decent human being that lives and breathes air, they find other things to do other than to go rob someone or commit violence towards someone on their Sundays. Does crime sky rocket when football season ends and it's just the NBA and the MLB? What do all of the low lives who can't think of anything better to do than?? Did Ray forget that there will still be college football going on that these folks he is so worried about can watch?? Sometimes these athletes just need to learn to let lawyers or their publicists speak for them, because far to many times on either twitter or somewhere else these guys come off as completely delusional to what regular folks think and understand and interpret things as.
