Ray Lewis played his last home game of his career on Saturday, and doesn't want to hear about how he 'disrespected' the Colts or anybody else by doing his little 'squirrel dance' as the game was about wrap up. "It wasn't about them at that time," Lewis said via the Ravens' website. "That was about capping off a heck of a legacy of 17 years. When he (Wayne) was in Pop Warner playing football, I was in Baltimore. To salute my city that way, I guess the trot around the field was disrespectful, too. No. It wasn't even about them." Wayne and Lewis are both products of the "U", the University of Miami, which Lewis notes that players from there are insanely competitive and hate to lose, and can't fault Wayne for his comments to a degree. "The game was over," Lewis said. "I didn't go toward their sideline or make no big issue of that because I've never been that type of player. But (it was) to salute my city, knowing that people love to see that." "It wasn't even about them," Lewis said. "It was about me honoring my team and honoring my city." var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • Everyone from out of town wants to bash the Ravens when they win an important game. Just like when they won the Super Bowl. Magazines tagged them, "The Baltimore Bullies" Mostly a matter of sore losers. Too bad. Suck it up!
  • Ray Lewis is an A**HOLE
  • And your mother should have swallowed.
  • Well now! The Colts labeling Ray Lewis as disrespectful! What about the last 29 years when the Colts left Baltimore for Indianapolis. Talk about disrespectful. They didn't even have the decency to change the name of their team and just went ahead and adopted the Baltimore Colts name.
  • Talk about disrespect remember The Colts left in the middle of a cold dark night. We got Ray Lewis in the daytime hours. Ray is all about respect...
  • Ray Lewis is entitled to celebrate his career. He earned his place the NFL. He was not taunting but rather celebrating for his fans. Ravens will miss Ray Lewis and the heart he brought to every game, whether it was from the field or the sidelines.
    He is a captain in every sense of the word, a leader. As far as I'm concerned, not only should Lewis be allowed to celebrate and dance...all NFL players should be able to express their emotions after a touchdown. They worked hard to get to the NFL, which is no easy task. Sports are about competition and emotions run high. In this case, Ray was saying goodbye to his Baltimore fans. Thanks Ray for many great years!! You will be missed.
