Ray Lewis - Crime will rise if there is no NFL this fall.

Ray Lewis of Baltimore Ravens says crime will rise if season lost - ESPN

One of the consequences of a lost NFL season will be an increase in crime, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said in a wide-raging one-on-one interview with ESPN.


"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," Lewis told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

That's because, Lewis said, the NFL lockout affects "way more than us" -- the owners and the players.

"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."

When asked why he thought crime would increase if the NFL doesn't play games this year, Lewis said: "There's nothing else to do Sal."

Sunday is Day 68 of the lockout, which is now the longest work stoppage in NFL history. Lewis said the current dispute boils down to a matter of ego.

"It's simple, we really got to remove pride. Seriously," he said.

"There's no other reason the issue is going on," he said. "That's why I don't get into words and all that other stuff, because it takes away from life ... itself. There's people who are really struggling for real. There's real struggles out there."

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"

I guess with more NFL players on the street crime would have to go up.

Oh c'mon now, we all know little 'ray-ray' was innocent. That was just a case of the man trying to keep him down.

I think I'm going to have to agree with him....
If this lockout doesn't end soon, someone's going to start kicking the **** out of the owner's asses. And I think it's probably going to be treated as a crime. However, it's probably going to be easy to find a sympathetic jury.
