SI Damning article on Ray Lewis

A brave article to put out on HOF weekend and hats off top Robert Klemko. Brave because he will surely be blackballed by the NFL now for daring to question a genuine scumbag who the NFL has decided to put a halo on.

https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/08/04/ra...tlanta-murders

After Klemko asked Lewis about this in Jan 2013. After Lewis threw a strop, Klemko left the room. The Ravens really are scum.

Quote:
I said okay and walked out of locker room. A Ravens media relations staffer followed me into the hallway. “Robert,” he said, “if you ever pull some bulls--- like that, you will never come in this locker room again.” I told him I didn’t understand, and he pressed harder, sticking his finger in my face. “First of all, you know Ray is off limits,” he said. “Second of all, why are you asking questions about murders that happened 13 years ago?” I told him all I did was ask a question, and Lewis declined comment. “That’s it,” he said. “You’re not going back in that locker room today. Get out of here.”

Another media relations staffer then walked up to me. ”What are you asking questions about that for?” he asked me. “Why is that a story?” I said, “You really want me to explain that?” He nodded. I’d been reading my Society of Professional Journalists code, the one they taught us in college, in preparation for just such a question. I had an answer: “Because our responsibility is to give voice to the voiceless, and to tell the story of the diversity of the human experience boldly.” He was unimpressed. “You should get out of here if he says you can’t go back in,” he said.

My editors went to the league, and then to the Ravens, demanding an apology. None came. My credential, however, was waiting for me for that week’s playoff game in Denver. I went into the Ravens locker room on Saturday after they won that game in overtime. I walked over to outside linebacker Paul Kruger for an interview, Then a Ravens PR staffer and linebacker Terrell Suggs called Kruger over. When he returned to his locker, he said he couldn’t talk to me. “Sorry, gotta go with the vets,” he said. I walked over to the staffer. We argued. Players around us raised their voices at me. Then Lewis walked out in a towel. He put a hand on my shoulder and delivered a line I’ll never forget.

“Whatever you’re saying, I forgive you,” Lewis told me. “You were No. 1 in my prayers last night. You don’t have to apologize.”

I said, “I’m not sorry, and I’m not going to apologize for doing my job. If you want to have a private conversation, I’m all for it.” Lewis turned away, and two teammates attempted to shove me out of the locker room, with the PR guy standing between them, facing me instead of turning the players away. I realized I wasn’t going to accomplish anything there, and I walked out.

IDK. I'd be disappointed if Patriots players didn't stand up for each other.

It’s one thing for players to stick up for each other. That’s expected.

It’s another for PR staff to come down and verbally accost a journalist. He asked pretty simple questions. Put the big boy pants on, dig down, and formulate an answer. It’s going to be a lie or steered completely off topic anyway, so no need for the attack.

His speech was embarassing but not unexpected. Tried his Preacher schtick, prancing around the stage like a demented pastor. He's a total phony imho and a nasty pos.

Oh, it's Ray Lewis. Lebron knows he's a diva. But at least he's never killed anyone.

Ray actually did time though.

If Bron Bron was handed that sentence the palms up exasperated look would be EPIC.

Randy Moss wore a tie with people that were killed by police/security.

Ray Lewis should have worn a tie with the people that he killed...

I don't know who was the bigger joke in their last season. Bettis and his 2 yards and a cloud of dust getting carried to his hometown Super Bowl or Ray Lewis jumping on the pile after the tackle as a washed up nobody on a playoff team carried by their offense.

Lewis was a great player in 2000. He was the worst player on the defense in 2012.

He is and always will be an absolute phony.
