Ravens to erect a Ray Lewis statue

Getty Images

The irony of the overlap between football and religion is that the ultimate prize in the NFL is worshiped like the golden calf from Exodus 32.

Folks in Baltimore will eventually be able to bow at the sculpted likeness of linebacker Ray Lewis.

Via ESPN.com, owner Steve Bisciotti said Thursday that the Ravens will be building a statue honoring Lewis.

“I think he set himself apart in Baltimore sports history, and we will certainly look into it and I would not be surprised if there is one there in the next year or two,” Bisciotti said.

Yeah, it’s common for mankind to honor great men and women with statues.  Still, there’s a fine line between respect and idolatry.  And anyone who claims that the statue of Lewis cries real tears on the anniversary of the team’s most recent Super Bowl win will probably be on the wrong side of that line.

  1. Good grief.

    Are they going to hold mass at the statue twice every day too? Light candles and pray at its feet? Make burnt offerings to it?

    That’s enough, Baltimore. Really. That’s enough.

  2. Are you kidding me…..you treat him like he’s some GOD or something. Gets away with murder and this is what he gets……Unreal

  3. The interesting part is Ray Lewis had everything to do with their first Super Bowl victory and hardly anything to do with the most recent one in terms of his on the field play. He retired at the right time.

  4. Wow….just wow….Ok Mr.Bible, time to practice what you preach and tell them “thanks but no thanks”. Doesn’t it say somewhere not to worship false idols.

  5. what more does a man have to do for a sports team to get a statue than what ray lewis did for the ravens? no brainer. bronze him.

  6. Oh the haters are going to eat this up. *ohh is the statue going to have a knife in his hand? har har har**ohh is the descriptiong going to read”paid off?” har har har*I am sure you people will come up with more.

  7. This is the biggest screw up I have ever seen. Just think about who this is. And the unknown about him. But the city will build a statue I will never be in that city are state ever.

  8. This article will definitely spark anti-Ray Lewis comments and I feel I must warn all of you that you need to watch what you say because you may make Ray Lewis angry and you wouldn’t like Ray Lewis when he’s angry……because he kills people.

  9. In a little over five years, Lewis will join an exclusive club in the NFL Hall of Fame: Probably Murdered Two Guys (tied – O.J. Simpson).

  10. Probably should wait a few years to assure he lives up the the high standards he has claimed to be the last few years. See what kind of life he leads without the spotlight.

  11. Will the statue be holding a knife?


    I really think all that is a bunch of crap, and I don’t really know if he did it or not….

    I just like to talk trash

  12. The latest chapter in our country’s disgraceful deification of otherwise-worthless people simply because they’re good at sports.

    Even if you believe that Lewis was not directly involved with the murder of those two men, his obstruction-of-justice conviction by itself should prevent something like this from ever happening.

  13. I don’t see why people hate on this guy. He is a football icon and deserves to be put in stone for all to remember him. He is the definition of playing with your heart! Much respect Ray…..it was great to see you in action for all those years!

  14. Will his head will have antlers on it and will there be two dead bodies at the base of the statues?

  15. So will the statue have him wearing a bloody white suit, and maybe he will be holding a knife in one hand? Maybe you could put his four wives and six kids next to him. He may be a great football player but the man is trash and hides behind god. Do the Niners have a Montana statue, or the Steelers have a Bradshaw statue? The Ravens are a joke, and when Lewis was hugging Bisciotti from behind after the championship game might be the most awkward few min ever in sports. What a big strange love fest.

  16. Shouldnt they wait a few years to see if he is charged with murder, or has to destroy his clothing from a wild night again?

  17. Hope they put it indoors in an area that is locked at night. Lots of folks from all over the country will have some fun with a statue of La Fraud.

  18. A statue?! People really do have short term memories. I guess if you’re gonna be mixed up with any murders you should do it early in your career, then cry on television every chance you get and push your religion as hard as Tim Tebow. If you follow these easy steps, you can get a statue in Baltimore.

  19. How could a good Christian like Ray Lewis allow the city of Baltimore to erect a statue of him for people to worship like some kind of god? Does he know what god says about worshiping idols?
    This is more proof of what a fraud he is.

  20. Ray Lewis is an icon in Baltimore. Regardless if outsiders understand, like, accept it or not, he will always be appreciated here. Johnny Unitas has a statue in front of the main entrance to stadium, and I’ve never seen anybody pray in front of it or worship it like an idol, but people take pictures their before and after every game, including fans of visiting teams. I and all the Ravens fans look forward to walking past the statue of Ray Lewis on our way to the game, and couldn’t care less of what outsiders or “reporters” who clearly have their own agenda think.
    I don’t practice idolatry, just happen to park on that side of the stadium (assuming that they put the statue on the opposite side of the stadium from Unitas’ statue)

  21. @dankkc… no but pnc park in Pittsburgh has many baseball player statues. Like him or not, he has done more for that team then almost any other player has done for any other team.

  22. Whether it’s a political character or a football god, I don’t think statues should be erected of persons who are still alive because it IS idolatry. It’s emotionally driven and will be meaningless a generation from now.

    Same goes for having buildings and streets named after living persons. Just weird.

  23. Irony is in about a years time they take down a statue of a guy who didn’t tell the whole truth about a horrendous crime and erect a statue in honor of another person who has done the same thing. It would be fitting if they recycled Paterno’s to build Lewis’.

  24. And the Roethlisberger statue in Pittsburgh will have him with some white trash skank bent over in front of him with it looking like she’s snapping him the ball while she’s crying.

  25. People, it’s not like Ray Lewis commissioned the statue himself. This is the owner of the team wanting to honor not only the greatest player in franchise history, but the greatest defender of his generation.

    M&T Bank stadium already has Johnny U, and next door at Camden Yards the O’s honor their greats in the same manner.

  26. Wasting money on a statue of an overhyped professional football player is exactly what a bankrupt city needs…
    Congratulations, Baltimore!!!

  27. So the prosecuting attorney states that Ray Lewis didn’t do it. There was no evidence that he did it so charges are dropped. Why do so many idiots call him a murderer? You do not have to be a Ravens fan, but I can guarantee you every Sunday, 75,000 fans will stop by that statue just as they do Johnny U’s. Oh btw, Oriole Park has a statue for Cal Ripken, Earl Weaver, Brooks Robinson etc. Stop worrying about how the Ravens honor Ray Lewis and worry about why your team is not the Super Bowl champion….haters

  28. Hey nasty haters… Baltimore doesn’t care what you think! Huh huh put a knife in his hand huh huh! Put a white suit on him huh huh… I mean do you read the comments posted before you??? Get over it. Baltimore loves ray Lewis. He’s a great player and has done great things for our city.

    World Champs Out

  29. When I read “Ray Lewis is a murderer” or “Is it going to be equipped with a knife” all I really see is “Wa wa wa wa wa I’m tired of Ray Lewis destroying my teams offense for 17 years” 2 rings suck it haters

  30. Great News he deserves it, he’s been the heart and Soul of Our team ever since he’s he been drafted. One of the Greatest players ever. An Absolute Legend.

    Will his head will have antlers on it and will there be two dead bodies at the base of the statues?

    only if one of them is yours

  32. Par for the course. Society is going down the tubes…… We debate having “God” (written) in documents, on buildings, in speeches, yet this clown who uses and abuses “God” gets a statue. Perfect!

  33. You’re getting a little carried away here. Do you expect teams to hide their Lombardis in the basement? Having them on display hardly means people are worshipping them like the golden calf.

    Yeah, a statue to one player seems over the top to me. But Bama has statues to all its championship-winning coaches. And Pittsburgh has a statue commemorating the Immaculate Reception. You have a collection of mini-helmets, and I have some autographed photos and artwork. Unless we start believing our memorabilia is capable of parting the Red Sea, I think we’re okay.

  34. I’ve never seen so many haters in my life.. Dude you guys can’t even appreciate what the man did on the field, instead you sit in your moms basement writing dumb knife comments cause you can’t get laid. I hope he does have a knife in hand.. Then what?

  35. On the surface the Lewis statute seems offensive, but then I remember it will only be a matter of weeks until some enterprising Baltimore mummies steal it to sell for scrap.

  36. @baltimoreballs

    “So what, we have a statue of Johnny Unitas on one side of the stadium. Camden Yards has statues of all the Oriole greats in front of their stadium too.”


    That’s great. Did they erect those statues of those players 5 seconds after they retired, too?

  37. It’s very appropriate in the city where “The Wire” and “Homicide” were filmed.

  38. They should also have the pearly gates of God sculpted around him too with the Devil winking in the background. Good stuff! They should put a statue of Son of Sam on the other side of the stadium as well. Wouldn’t hurt. Common theme.

  39. and if u want to know who murdered those guys 13 years ago, ask the statue. you’ll get more of an answer from it than Lewis himself.

  40. Wasn’t there already a Ray Lewis statue on the field last Sunday?

    Or was that just the real Ray Lewis, looking like he was standing still while the 49ers offense ran by?

  41. I don’t really care about all this, but how many of you are gonna say the same thing that someone else said over and over. If your Gonna talk trash, the least you can do is try to be original. Too many lame hateful people post comments anymore

  42. Well it’s good to see Florio isn’t still bitter. And in a few years, people will forget Florio and they will reminisce on one of the greatest linebackers in NFL history. Put the personal crap aside and look at this guy’s play on the field.

  43. The inevitable day when they have to take that statue down — and they will — will be one of the most karma-filled days in the history of sport. It’ll rank with the day the JoePa statue down in Happy Valley. And I’ll make sure to piss on it if I ever have to go there before the fall.

  44. I’ve been reading all these articles and negative comments about Ray Lewis, and am quite amazed. Neither Lewis, Oakley, nor Sweeting were convicted of murder or any homicide charge. Lewis testified against his friends and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice by providing a false statement to Atlanta police. He received a sentence of 12 months probation plus a $250,000 from the NFL.
    Like every other American, he had and still has the right to remain silent, and not have his silence held against him. Like every other American, he was presumed innocent unless and until he was found guilty beyond reasonable doubt by a jury of his fellow citizens. Yet, despite these fundamental rights we all have and should treasure, Lewis stands convicted by the press and many readers of this site.
    Baker and Lollar’s deaths, like the deaths of so many others, was tragic and continues to affect their families. However, by trampling Lewis’s rights in a quest for vengeance or “justice”, we trample our rights, too, and that may be a greater tragedy. Better that ten guilty men go free than one innocent man be convicted, because that innocent man could be you or me, or our brothers, or our sons.

  45. I’m sure RayRay has already commissioned many statues of himself around his house, perhaps he can just lend one of those?

  46. If I lived in Baltimore, and didn’t value my life, I’d open up a stand right next to this statue of Ray Ray, and I’d sell bottles of stage blood to tourists. They’d pay me $40 bucks for $5 bucks of stage blood, take a picture, and move on. Heck, for another $40, I’d take their picture myself, in front of the blood-stained statue of Ray Ray.

    But who am I kidding? If I lived in Baltimore, there’s no way I would value my life.

  47. all this anti ray lewis talk is tired & boring

    he was one of the greatest linebackers ever and just rode off into retirement with a ring.

    its an epic tale. deal with it

  48. A blogger saying Ray deserves one and will get one in the ESPN article.

    The official statement from Biscotti was only “we will certainly look into it and I would not be surprised if there is one there in the next year or two.”

    So why does the title state that there WILL be a statue? I’m starting to really dislike the headlines on this blog. The statement made by the headline for this article is irresponsible journalism. If ANYONE understand how important it is to be accurate with words, it should be a lawyer.

  49. Wtf, did ray, ray walk on the waters of the i nner harbor? Or did he part the inner harbor? Doesn’t really matter the idea stinks and they should instead name one of the cell blocks after him…

  50. Should probably hold off on the statue remember what happened with penn states statue? Wouldn’t want to have to tear it down if something comes out.

  51. Bible in 1 hand, Crocodile Dundee knife in the other, wearing a white suit with Antlers coming out his head. Good look… for a murderer

  52. Totally agree, Florio. A statue is way over the line. If Rey is as religious as he says, he should respectfully ask that they not do this.

  53. Comments here sum up the PFT experience perfectly.

    Solid article about something interesting followed by dozens and dozens of dummies cracking the same tired, unfunny joke one after the other…like sheep who think they’re clever.

    Just leave the writing to the guys working for the site. The overwhelming majority of you aren’t funny or original. And your grammar is garbage too.

  54. before ray lewis announced his retirement, everyone inside and out of baltimore loved ray lewis. he announces he is retiring and everyone is hating on him for something most people forgot about and that he never was convicted of doing..heck he was never even accused of doing it…just being there.

  55. I use to live in Baltimore. I said to someone there back in 2007, they need to put a statue of Ray Lewis outside of that stadium. Now it will be done. That’s a beautiful thing. I am so happy for him. He deserves every blessing.

  56. Folks in Baltimore will eventually be able to bow at the sculpted likeness of linebacker Ray Lewis.

    Florio you must be new to sports. There are 6 statues of Orioles greats next door and a Johnny U statue at the front of the stadium. Don’t be an idiot, no one prays to those statues.

  57. Ray Lewis is an icon in Baltimore. Regardless if outsiders understand, like, accept it or not, he will always be appreciated here. Johnny Unitas has a statue in front of the main entrance to stadium, and I’ve never seen anybody pray in front of it or worship it like an idol, but people take pictures their before and after every game, including fans of visiting teams. I and all the Ravens fans look forward to walking past the statue of Ray Lewis on our way to the game, and couldn’t care less of what outsiders or “reporters” who clearly have their own agenda think.

    Paterno will always be appreciated at Penn State (by some), but even his statue was taken down.

    People idolize sports stars way too much. I wouldn’t care if he won 5 Super Bowls and broke every record in the NFL.. he was involved in a double murder and he still won’t tell anyone the truth. And now he’s hiding behind God.

    Just because you’re good at football doesn’t mean you should have a statue made of you. To me, it’s just another slap in the face of the families who lost loved ones.

    If Ray had any dignity and/or sympathy, he would tell whoever made this decision that the money could be spent elsewhere… like maybe going toward families in need, whom he always claims he wants to help.

  58. I heard ray is going to be in a bent down position and they will put brendon ayanbadejo right behind him shrugging his shoulders and wearing a rainbow hat.

  59. He earned it, greatest player the ravens have had, arguably best MLB to ever play… I just hope the statue is him doing that dance that always has me cracking up before ravens games.

  60. Well deserved! Funny all of a sudden there is public opinion on black on black crime! LMFAO! Respect the best middle linebacker of all time!

  61. Keep tapping on your keyboards tough guys you wouldn’t say a word to his faxe(not just cuz he would stab u) he’s the first raven you think of when u hear that team name. I got respect for his play, maybe not his off the field garbage.

  62. It’s kind of funny how people all think Ray Lewis is a killer but you don’t know a god damn thing about what happened and neither do I. I think they had enough evidence to proved he killed those two men if he did it, just my opinion. Leonard Little and Dontae Stallworth killed people as well. They are building a statue of the the greatest MLB I ever see play the game who won two championships for them so I think it’s fine by me. I knew idiots would come on here and call him a killer. Little & Stallworth are proven killers. Stallworth paid his way out of getting jail time. Does that make it anymore right? He is still playing football.

  63. Wow, big surprise. If the Cleveland Indians can build a Jim Thome statue, then Baltimore should have a Ray Lewis statue.

  64. I think a projector of him making tackles 7-10 yards downfield, then getting up and doing whatever that thing is y’all call a dance.

    what a person he is…..not a “me guy” at all….he really doesnt ask for this attention guys.

  65. I would love a chance to design said Statue as a Mike Tyson Punch out final character…except he has a knife….

  66. You guys are such losers hating on Ray Lewis like this. I love how unoriginal the comments are too. Murder weapon, White suit, all unoriginal crap.

    Congrats Ray. People blinded by hate are an embarrassment to individuality. You are the greatest Defensive player to EVER play the game and the statue is well deserved!!

    Hey nasty haters… Baltimore doesn’t care what you think!

    Baltimore doesn’t really care about civilized society as a general rule.

  68. 2 time DPOY
    2 time SB Champion
    Shoe-in for HOF

    Being really good at something for a long time breeds all sorts of naysayers. Every negative poster here does nothing to diminish his accomplishments. Fortunately for all the negative posters here,they live quiet lives outside of the limelight that no one cares about,and thus their past indiscretions aren’t rehashed over and over ad nauseam.

  69. You nuts are complete jokes. You’re obsessed with writing stupid comments about a man you don’t know. All the great players in Baltimore have statues, and Lewis was the longest player in Ravens franchise history. I can’t wait for the statue. It’s not idoltry, Mike. The bitterness, is personal and unreal.

  70. Ray Lewis, the Greatest Linebacker of all Time, has two Super Bowl rings. Keep hating. Baltimore loves Ray. It’ll never change. Just like Belichick and Brady are beloved in New England, everyone else thinks Spycam. All you haters are pathetic, bow down to Ray’s rings.

  71. The Ray Lewis Ginsu knife collection will be available in the gift shop along with talking greeting cards speaking Ray Ray’s favorite bible crap.

  72. How is this different from any other sports teams having statues of their greatest players? Ray Lewis is arguably the greatest middle linebacker ever.

    This article and many of the comments that follow are very childish to say the least. Who needs true journalism when tabloids and sensationalism get more hits. That’s what the sports media have become.

  73. Doesn’t Ray’s religion say something about false idols. If he is the religious man that he claims to be then he will tell the team to not put ups statue of him. Unfortunately, all of the crying and religious talk is nothing more than self-serving hypocrisy. At the very least they should have little statues of all his kids and baby mamas behind his statue.

  74. I don’t get the outrage….people it’s Baltimore what do you expect. Hey it’s not in a high tourist area, it’s easy to avoid, but it will make the morally challenged people of Charm City happy…let them have this crumb to themselves….ten years with the pigeons and ray finds his white suit….that’s karma

  75. We also have a statue of Roger B Taney, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who authored the Dred Scott Decision. This gentleman was responsible for the death of 700,000 soldiers in the civil war. We have a park named after Robert E Lee, the famous traitor who abrogated his oath of allegiance to the US Army and the nation, and who invaded our state twice, causing untold destruction.

    A jury in Georgia ruled the deaths of these 2 gun wielding men justifiable self defense. But of course, you idiots have much more information available than the State of Georgia.

    So stay at your computer in the basement and maybe Mommy will bring you a nice cup of cocoa with your medication. Remember, you have group therapy tomorrow.

    I’m a 100%, full-on acknowledged biased Ravens fan. So, the knife/deer-antler/white-suit comments are tired and annoying. But, THIS was great, funny, and ORIGINAL!

  77. They should put up three fitting classic statue poses of Ray Lewis…..hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.

  78. You have to laugh at the disappointment of everyone who thought they were the first to post about a knife, antlers or white suit, only to see 50 other mouth breathers beat them to it.

  79. Hey Ravens fans…Are you are sick of all the knife and murder comments ?

    You may reflect on that the next time you make foolish spygate comments.

    Just say’n

  80. The statue should have two guys tackling the ball carrier and then have Ray Lewis standing above them about to jump on pile, like he’s done the past 10 years. Should have quit 10 years ago, ruined his legacy.

    Why would they gave a statue of a Murderer
    Thats why they are called Baltmorons

  82. That will be a worthy commemoration for the Greatest Middle Linebacker of all times. And I can’t wait until half of Baltimore make the trek to Canton in 5 years! GOAT!

  83. Lewis shaking hands with Rae Carruth in a Federal Prison would seem to be an appropriate pose for the statue…oh yea I forgot he bought his way out of a trial and conviction. Baltimore = City of False Idols; let the rain of fire begin.

  84. Oh my. Our society has sunk so low. This man may have been a great football player, but this is too much considering his personal life.

  85. Cue the lame “where are they going to put the knife?” jokes – Hate on haters…..best MLB of all time

  86. Shows how low the Baltimore organization and fans are to want this scumbag of a statue in front of their stadium. Great, he was a good football player. But he was an accomplice to murder! I guess since he’s able to hide behind the bible then he’s ok. Yet Cincinnati can’t honor Pete Rose because the MLB is upset he bet on a game. What a bass ackwards society we have. Do not bet on the game but you’re allowed to kill and you’ll still be idolized. Scum.

  87. all these comments are from who? fans from Denver, Pittsburgh, Boston, and San Fran perhaps?
    All of whom had a chance to send Ray Lewis off to early retirement. You even posted billboards eluding to it..


  88. Complete with white suit and him holding a knife. Memo to the builders make sure the statue can be removed easier then Paterno’s was….

  89. you clowns all need to get over yourselves. there will be no knife because he didnt kill anyone. the ravens and baltimore are paying homage to a legendary player. if you are tired of ray then why keep posting? jealousy perhaps? thanks ray and go ravens

  90. Not going to get the same respect a Tom Landry or Lombardi statue would get; I think it’s early, and premature to erect such a thing but if it all your team/city have, to each his own!

  91. Wow! Either people really hate Ray Lewis or they are extremely jealous of him. What a bunch of negative responses!

  92. I live in Utah, where the ESA has statues of John Stockton and Karl Malone on the outside. Also, at Merlin Olsen stadium at Utah State University, there is a statue of (surprise, surprise) Merlin Olsen. There’s nothing idolatrous about it, it’s a way to show respect to and remember the greatest athletes who have played there. For the greatest MLB ever, I kinda expected this would happen.

  93. Ravens fans and Raven-haters..We all benefited from having Ray Lewis in the league. He gave us somebody to love and somebody to hate. We should all be thankful – just like Muhammad Ali was to boxing.

  94. Monuments and statues of sports heroes have been around long before Ray Lewis. Yankees monument park looks like a cemetery. The Bulls put up a statue of MJ before he was officially retired from sports. The fans in Philly fought to keep the statue of Rocky from being removed.

    To compare this to religion is a huge stretch, and an obvious dig at Lewis who wears his religion is on his sleeve.

    Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, are not about worship, but recognition and history.

  95. Ray’s earned a statue. Only other statue the Ravens have is of the ORIGINAL Johnny Football, Johnny Unitas. It’s appropriate that the two men who define Baltimore’s football history are the two men who will have statues outside of M&T Bank Stadium.

  96. You mods are so busy making sure your narrative goes according to plan that you may have let a few unsightly comments end up in other unfavorable places.

    LOL. Love it.

  97. Lets not forget the greatest linebackers to ever play had the last names of Taylor,Ham,Lambert and Thomas.
    Sorry but Lewis doesn’t even come close to those 4.
    So the people who claim that that Ray Ray is the best LB of all time probably just started watching football maybe 15 years ago.

  98. @Theageofquarrel

    LT and DT were both outside linebackers, while Ray Lewis was a MLB. You can’t really compare the two. Two entirely different positions. LT and DT’s primary job was to pass rush. I’ll readily concede that both are better pass rushers than Ray Lewis ever was. However, LT and DT were not nearly as great as Ray was at stopping the run and coverage.

    As far as Jack Lambert, yes Lambert is an all-time great. I’d probably rank him 2nd or 3rd all time as far as MLBs go. Here’s why Ray’s better: Every team is constantly searching for the next Ray Lewis. With all due respect to Jack Lambert, I haven’t heard any team look for another Jack Lambert.

    Also, to not even mention Dick Butkus shows how little you know about football.

  99. Statue guys have to be impeccable, both on and off the field, admirable in every imaginable way. Mr. Lewis does not come up to statue level.

    Johnny Unitas is, arguably, one of the top 2-3 quarterbacks of all time and a role model off the field and is, by any measure, statue-worthy.

    Is Ray Lewis even in the top 10 all-time of linebackers? I’d say maybe yes without bothering to list them but…is he a role model off the field? I think not…being convicted of an obstruction of justice charge in a murder case is pretty damaging to that image.

  100. While we are at it, can we erect one of Saddam and Bin Laden, and change the name of the stadium to CUT Co. Field? What a killer idea!!

    Ravens fans and Raven-haters..We all benefited from having Ray Lewis in the league. He gave us somebody to love and somebody to hate. We should all be thankful – just like Muhammad Ali was to boxing.

    Don’t insult the greatest boxer of all time by comparing him to slash…it shows you are very young indeed..

  102. A statue of Ray Lewis? I guess they wanted to honor him with something that moves around as effectively as Lewis did during his last Superbowl. Heck, a large immobile piece of stone or steel might have occasionally stopped someone.

  103. Is it going to have a knife and a white suit?

    Look! Now I’m just as unoriginal as all of the others on here! Wow…it’s funny!

    Because…you know he was involved and all. Like 12 years ago and…you know so that’s what makes this comment so funny. Right? I mean…I’m funny when I put that because nobody ever thought of that comment. At least not on this website. SMH

  104. Right… thats why he was also found civilly responsible for the deaths and made a cash settlement with both of the families for reparations for damages.

    Worst thing about people that try to think beyond their true intelligence.

  105. A statue of ray lewis????

    Amazing what they can do with cow flop these days.

  106. Dear Haters- Unless you are in Baltimore, it does not matter what you think. Most of you ignorant, uneducated nut-cases are judging him based off inaccurate information. The fans of baltimore love the idea of a statue, and we cant wait. All you “outsiders” don’t have a say. Including you Mike Florio. Move on haters. Get over it.

  107. I shall print this comment section and erect a monument to Ignorance.

    All yall Bmore haters can stay the hell out, its not your city and we can put up statues to whoever we want. We got a Frank Zappa statue and a terrible Man/Woman thing at the train station already.

    Don’t come to Bmore. When you get some awful cancer and you’re all like “waaaaah, cure my cancer Hopkins” we’re gonna be all like GTFO. You get no crabcakes, no gold medals, no lombardi trophies, and next time Britain comes a knockn’ we just might pretend we don’t see ’em.

    Go to hell morons.

    And I mean that



  108. The City of Baltimore and Ravens fans everywhere thank you all for your collective hate.

    Your flowing tears taste sweet. Your anger-induced high blood pressure brings warmth and joy to our hearts. Your unoriginal and tired rants are like the dulcet tones of a passel of first violins.

    Your sheer agony brings us fits of laughter, uncontrollable gleeful laughter!

    We shall think of you as we look lovingly on the new Lombardi Trophy brought home by our heroes, as we also shall cheer loudly when the new Ray Lewis statue is unveiled.

    You shall be vexed. Vexed by it all!! And we…we shall cheer. Loudly. Again. And again. And again!! It shall be as a monument to your continued dismay…

    Continue on haters…For we are basking in the incandescent glow of your palpable pain. And we hope and pray to the football gods that your pain is endless, as if you are burning in hell.

    The City of Baltimore thanks you. I thank you.
