    The Arrogance of Ray Lewis

         A few weeks ago, Ray Lewis claimed that crime will increase if the NFL lockout is not resolved. Here are his exact words: "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."

         Apparently, Lewis felt that the lockout would affect fans as much or more than the players and owners, "There's too many people that live through us, people live through us," he said: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=6575570  

         This is the epitome of arrogance. Apparently, LaBron James feels the same way. After losing to the Mavericks in the NBA finals, he stated, "...at the end of the day, all the people that was rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today. They have the same personal problems they had today. I'm going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do with me and my family and be happy with that. They can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy about not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal, but they have to get back to the real world at some point."

         What arrogant, egotistical jerks these guys are. They have such a low opinion of the people who make it possible for them to earn millions, playing a child's game. Where would they be if not for pro ball...and the fans that support it?

         Seems to me that Lewis and LeBron, not the fans, are the ones who need to return to the "real world at some point".

    Attacking two Black athletes seems a bit Racist.  Probably just best to ignore what fools say.

    So, calling these two Black athletes "fools" is not a racist attack?

    This is an example of what is wrong with this country. A white athlete makes an idiotic statement & a response is okay. Change that same athlete to black & it's racist. You my friend have been brain washed. Are you going to demand the OP pay indemnification?

    I didn't mean to make it sound like the original post was a racial attack.  It's just that I thought tcal's post was a bit ironic by refering to it as a racial attack and then refering to them as fools. FWIW, I don't think either statement was a racial attack.  And yes, they are both fools.

    Of course not Salcon, Your smart enough to realize the difference.  Fool come in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. 

    Purposely calling out two African American Athletes, in a thread on a public forum, for saying silly things could very well be considered raciest by some.

    As an example I herd more then a few, White Canadian, Vancouver players say some really foolish things during the finals but no threads were started.

    Hell one player cannibalized a Bruin yet no thread.  Another Vancouver player inflicted a head injury on a Bruin player with an illegal hit.  Where was the outrage or the thread?  Actual heinous acts perpetrated by White Canadians, yet no thread.

    Wink

    It appears you are the raciest one, simply by raising the topic of race when the comments were about two ATHLETES who went out of there way to make their condescending opinions made about the fans of the game. And if they were not intentional, it only shows there TRUE feelings about us and what MONEY has done to them.

    And you have to work on YOUR RACISM and see people for who they are. You are a part of a DYING generation or an ignorant hold out.

    Had the thread been about two athletes who are "white" would you have made it a racial discussion? I DOUBT IT !

    You are the one that see's a persons color before you see the person, learn to see the person for who they are, not what they are and you will be on the right track.

    Were you capable of comprehending the point or just stubbornly ignoring the fact that the point made you look foolish. Most people who are raciest and do not know it are that way because of ignorance, the rest are just hateful people who hate all people for one reason or another including themselves.

    But it wasn't and I simply jazzed the tread up a bit.  In case you haven't noticed this board has become very stale without any actual football to talk about.

    NO you did not jazz up the thread you turned it into a socially unacceptable abortion of the topic which was about two athletes. YOU forced your racial views upon the board. I would rather the board get stale that have to put up with your racial views or have to educate you on your awareness of your subliminal racial prejudices.

    The first and only one on the board who made a distinction of race one way or another was YOU.

    Relax Opie.  You have no idea what my racial views are.  I'm kinda sure I never stated what they were.  I started with a simple observation.  Gave my reason for that observation and gave my own example to support my original observation. 

    So grab your binky and step away from the computer if you can't handle a mature discussion.

    Do you actually read the stuff you write?  "socially unacceptable abortion of the topic" I can actually feel my IQ dropping every time I read one of your posts.  Please forgive me for not responding to you anymore.  Have a great night.

    There IS one problem brought to light by these statements, it is of the least acknowledged form of racism that hit ALL of us, that has no limits of sex,color,religion, or sexual preference, that of SOCIOECONOMIC racism. You see money and social standing could care less what your orientations are if you could afford to be in the upper socioeconomic crust of the nation or world.  These two athletes obviously feel they have broken into the elite group. But unfortunately they will realize sooner or later they are only big fish in a small pond, in the reality of the world class structures they aren't even a blip on the radar. At least we are aware of our standings, they obviously have a big awakening to have. Those who came from very little and achieve more than most and forget where they came from and try to flaunt what they have are amongst the smallest of people.
