    More of the real Ray Lewis revealed

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/nationa...brZRgJtcFYHdFP

    What’s his defense?

    Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis — who earned $7.2 million in 2011 — couldn’t spare a dime of it for his own charity, The Post has learned.

    Lewis, who is playing his last game in tonight’s Super Bowl, set up two charities to polish his image after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice in 2000 in connection with a double homicide in Atlanta that year.

    He started the Ray Lewis Foundation in 2002, but the group lost its IRS tax-exempt status because it failed to file tax returns for three years.

    He opened the similarly named Ray Lewis Family Foundation in 2010.



    The organization’s biggest events are giveaways of school supplies and food. But most of the loot is donated by businesses, such as Walmart.

    Charity officials did not respond to requests for comment.

    I wouldn't say he should be idolized, but he's no thug either. He's a great football player who appears to have a positive impact on those close to him. And he did some charity work in the past...what more do you want from the guy?

    Who cares.

    I feel bad for his charities, but other than that, who cares. Does it surprise you?

    The whole thing doesn't bother me, but the Ray Lewis storyline has gotten old. Can't wait for tonight to get over with so I don't have to see my sports news being cluttered with pictures and videos of Ray crying and being inspirational. It's REALLY played out.

    Wifey just asked me "is that guy like the inspiration behind the whole team or something, and why does he always look like hes gonna cry"

    I didnt have the energy to tell her about how he has been done dirty with the whole deer antler velvet concentrate.

    I mean, it was ok at first. It's his last hoorah and all that, so it was tolerable. Then, it became a "HEY, LOOK AT ME BEING SO INSPIRATIONAL! YES! TEARS, MAN! SHOW YO FACE, FATHER! *BIRD NOISE* *BIRD NOISE*".

    He is a murdering doucher! He inspires people who don't bother to learn facts or who don't care.

    you say the ray lewis story is getting old, so is the failures of sanchez namely the butt fumble.

    Again, what does that have to do with anything? Oh, it's because you think I'm a Sanchez supporter, right? Check your facts before you start speaking, assclown.
