Ray Lewis announced prior to the Baltimore Ravens’ playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts last weekend that he would be retiring, so most people enjoyed seeing him do his trademark dance one last time. One person who didn’t find it too amusing, though, was Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne. Wayne found it disrespectful that Lewis did his typical pregame dance, and then came out to play in the victory formation where he did another celebratory dance following the Ravens’ last kneel down. “I saw it as disrespectful,” Wayne said, via WNDE’s Jake Query. “They’d already had a tribute every quarter.” We agree with Wayne. Doing the dance before the game is one thing, but it wasn’t at all sportsmanlike for Lewis to join the offense for the kneel down and then break out the dance another time. If Lewis is anything like the high-character guy he’s led us to believe he is, he should apologize for his actions. The post Reggie Wayne: Ray Lewis’ dance at end of game was ‘disrespectful’ appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.

  • Ray Lewis appreciates what football and the city of Baltimore has given him. I'm sure Mr. Lewis didn't have Mr. Wayne in mind when he did his dance. It was the last time Ray was ever going to play on his home field after 17 years. Mr. Ray Lewis didn't stand on his opponents mid-field logo during an away game. However, his last home game win did end the colts run to this years Super Bowl. People ARE talking about Ray Lewis and how he made his defensive mark in the game of football.
  • Crybaby Wayne! Ray Lewis played those last games with his triceps muscle TORN away from the bone for the LOVE OF THE TEAM, THE FANS AND BALTIMORE IN GENERAL. only 1 other linebacker lasted 17 years, I forget his name, go look it up!

    I was born into BALTIMORE COLTS football in the year the GREATEST GAME EVER was played! Go look that up too. IRSAY is rotting in hell for screwing over BALTIMORE and he deserves it! Look that up, too! Owed us 2 MILLION dollars, denied he was leaving Baltimore repeatedly, then like a jerk leaves in the middle of a snowstorm in the middle of the night March 29th, 1984 AND TOOK OUR NAME! No one took the team name with them back then. And I will never use a MAYFLOWER moving van as long as I am alive! Employees reported to work to find the facility locked and chained up tight. Overnite, out of work, these people who loved their team. IRSAY had a lot of class, IT WAS ALL LOW, BUT HE HAD A LOT OF IT.

    As tough as the referees were, I think they would have called unsportsmanlike conduct or something, if there was anything to call at all.

    There was not one thing wrong with Ray Lewis' dances. It's not against the rules and because of IRSAY, we went without football in Baltimore for 12 long years. So we rooted against THE INDIANAPOLIS PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM. Peyton Manning was your only saving grace as he was a fan of John Unitas!

    Ray Lewis was being joyful and thankful and did not make YOU DO the dance, did he?
    So quit your belly aching and accept the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl, and celebrated as the Original Raven! He will be with John Unitas someday way down the road and oh, btw, Unitas was OURS not yours. Everything before that demonic move IRSAY plotted is OURS NOT YOURS! No matter what the NFL RULE IS!

    YA BIG CRYBABY! We owe Art Modell a huge debt of thanks we can never repay. HE LEFT THE NAME OF THE CLEVELAND BROWNS, DIDN'T HE? Now, that's a man with CLASS! Rest in peace, Art!

    Update: March 22, 2013
    I did forget to say that for YOUR SAKE, I HOPE THAT IRSAY JUNIOR IS NOT LIKE HIS FATHER!
