    I'm a Bengals, and Browns fan, so obviously I'm not a fan of him. However, I have the utmost respect for him as a player, and think he's one of the best leaders, and one of the most passionate guys in football history. He will be missed, and I hope he wins it this year.

    Isn't that the guy who killed two people in Atlanta?

    That's what the fame-grubbing District Attorney wanted us to believe. He needed a big name to go down to make him look like he's tough-on-crime, and Ray took the bait.

    Ray did himself no favors being evasive at first, and he paid for that by being the only person to be punished in relation for the crime (12 months probation for obstruction).

    When the DA finally realized he lacked the physical and witness evidence to pin on Lewis, he offered him the plea deal for obstruction if he testified against the other two defendants, taking the bet that the jury would at least convict the other two. Ray testified... and the DA lost on that bet, when the jury acquitted both guys.

    What Ray Lewis DID kill, unintentionally, was the Nightlife Central scene Buckhead Atlanta was up until that time.

    After that high-profile incident the neighborhood, city, and developers worked to raze literally every nightclub and entertainment venue in the immediate area, which was previously fine to the community as long as it was just drunk well-heeled white kids throwing down (and throwing up) in the streets. Almost a decade later, the area is still a giant construction zone around Peachtree and Pharr, as the market for the glitzy condo and office towers that was to replace the bars and clubs collapsed before they could get built.

    As for the original question, NO we won't be missing him at all, because it will be impossible to get him off our TV screens. Ads, religious shows, guest appearances, and one motivational speech after another after another after another...

    I think I'll miss watching him play. I'm not a Ravens fan but I like watching guys who play hard. He never takes a play off, wish he spent 17 years on my team.

    I was born a Browns fan until they moved, then I became a Bengals fan. So when the Browns came back I cheered for them both, but when they play I have to go with the Bengals.

    Those charges were dropped, but yes. You are thinking of the right person.

    As a huge Patriots fan, I disagree on hoping Ray Lewis retires with a Super Bowl win. (Obviously) Having said that, it's nice to see him go on a run to end his career.

    Good riddance and none too soon. Ravens are the Raiders of the East Coast (except of course with a winning record...).
