Default Ray Lewis Predicts Crime Will Rise If Season Lost

Ray Lewis obviously knows his fan base based on these statements

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."

The interview also features Ray-Ray parroting the Harbaugh party line of how close the Ravens were to being the champs if it were not necessary to actually win playoff games you lose

Lewis also believes the Ravens were extremely close to winning their second title the past few seasons. Baltimore had a pair of close playoff losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers following the 2008 and 2010 seasons. The Steelers went on to advance to the Super Bowl both times.

"Minutes away," Lewis said. "We've been in the playoffs the last three years. We've been to the AFC Championship and lost it. Minutes. Turnover here, turnover there."

Ray should know. I guess he's just saying when he's not playing football he's probably out getting into trouble or stabbing someone.

Well it does seem like an extreme case, but it's possible. Thousands without jobs could do illegal things to get by.
