It is pretty funny watching people whose mantra was, "Ray is god" change thier tune to, "Don't let the door hit you on the ass on the way out."

One guy was pissed because he has a Ray Lewis shrine in his basement.

Rumor has it that Mr. Highest paid defender in the NFL is broke, wants a new contract, and the Ravens are saying, "no way."

I don't want him here, that is for sure. Supposedly he has become quite the lockerroom cancer.

It is being discussed on the Ravens board; supposed to have been in the Baltimore paper. There have been rumors on this for quite a while over there.

Pretty ballsy wanting a raise with as much time as he missed the last couple seasons, I guess he wants that one last bonus so he can retire soon as he can tell the end is near. Plus the fact that their offense is so pathetic that he probably doesn't even see a light on the other side of the tunnel.

Rumor has it Ray's out of money. He built a huge house, had to sell it. Has been charging Joe-Montana-like appearance fees.

He's got a restraunt in the Baltimore area that's about to go under, so I hear. He contacted a radio station to run an ad for it. They did for a couple months, never received a check from Ray to pay the charge. Called him up. Ray said sure, no problem. Sent the station several hundred $$ worth of certificates to his restraunt.

Not what they were looking for.

looks like he taking a page from the TO book


a growing trend ...

1. play nice until you get a new contract.
2. do as much as you can to force the biggest SB
3. once you get the bonus become a huge pain in the ass so they are force to trade/cut you.

rinse/repeat with your new team

Oh my god...that's hilarious.

I remember seeing his house on NFL Network. Oops, Ray!

Doesn't really matter because Ray will easily be able to get a front office job with the Ravens.

Ray: I just got a flat tire on my escalade, so I need a new one.

Dealer: A tire, sure thing sir.

Ray: No, a new Escalade.

If I was making $4 million a year playing football, I wouldn't even be considering investing money in anything besides Treasury bonds and maybe some conservative stock funds. There's no reason to risk your money when you're making that much.

I don't know, Mr. Rain Man. I'm certainly no expert, but a restaurant serving "Duck a la Ray" and "Quarterback Smack Pie" seems like a pretty good investment to me.

I wonder if Ray Ray knows Mrs. Strahan

<A name=291692>Giants | Police and Courts: Strahan's wife fails to get restraining order
Sat, 11 Feb 2006 10:48:48 -0800
Jeane Macintosh, of the New York Post, reports New York Giants (http://www.kffl.com/team/26/nfl) DL Michael Strahan (http://www.kffl.com/player/1275/nfl)'s estranged wife failed to get a restraining order against him. An appeals court ruled Strahan's actions during an argument last year did not amount to domestic violence. The argument started when his wife withdrew $1.7 million from their joint account.

I would say the biggest problem with high profile players like RAY LEWIS having any kind of investments is not having the FIRST clue on how to run said business and then milking it by bringing all you teammates in for free dinner, etc etc etc. Having a friend run the business for you only to find out that he/she has been shorting you for the last 5 years and now your business is failing.

You are correct RainMan

His stats are inflated; heck, in one game last year he was credited with a tackle and he wasn't even suited up.

I like Ray Lewis. I've always been a fan of the LB position, and Ray is one of the best to ever play the game. He plays with heart and intensity.

He's on the downside of his career now, and probably isn't justified in wanting more money, regardless of his financial problems. It would be too bad if he had to pull a Jerry Rice to eek out the last years of his career.
