Ray Lewis Says Crime Will Rise Without NFL Season

Yahoo- For all the craziness that is associated with Ray Lewis(notes), the man sure does seem to speak the truth on big issues. The latest one? How the lockout might affect our society as a whole, and what it might do to the nation's crime rate. No, he isn't just talking about the players. Ray thinks if the lockout continues and there is no NFL season, crime will increase because people will be so distraught without one of their favorite pastimes. This all came out from his ESPN interview, and here was exactly what Ray said.

"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. [...]
"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."
The man has a point. Football fans will have to find other things to do without their favorite game being played if the NFL does decide to go with this lockout, and Lewis is just pointing out facts about this. If any sport or big event was dumped, it would force people to look for other things to do, and I think that's the point Lewis is making here. Just add it to the growing list of reasons why the NFL lockout would be a bad thing.

According to Ray Lewis, crime will rise with no NFL season. I think we better listen. With no work, Ray Lewis will have to take his anger out by killing more people (everyone know he did kill someone rite?), Roethlisberger will rape more underage chicks, Vick will go back to dog fights to keep busy (go knows he won't be able to pick up a copy of Madden without getting sick). Shit, we might need to keep Plaxico away from firearms and night clubs (if he signs with the Giants. If he signs with anyone else give him a glock and send him to the 40/40). And we can blame it all on the owners. Throw them in jail for inciting crime. Even if we need to resort to recreating The Replacements by hiring some scabs to play a shitty season. Just so I have something to watch, shit I might need to resort to arena football. I didn't even know that was a real thing until ESPN was talking about having NFL teams sign them for the same amount that they pay the people who sell $8 hotdogs and $70 jerseys at the stadium. Shit, they mind as well have some cheerleaders work double duty and hold the ball for field goals, if Lucy can do it I don't see why they can't get some pom-pom shaker in there for the extra points.
