Depending on where your fanhood lies, it’s easy to find literally any excuse to hate a player who doesn’t sport your team’s uniform. I had to dig all the way back to Peyton Manning’s Tennessee days to find a reasonable qualm to to hate him (See: Him dropping his ballsack and grundle on his trainer’s head.) And even then, I kind of respected him.

But there are some players who make it easy to hate them.

Being accused of murder, relentlessly overusing the “Praise be to God” schtick, and wearing a fedora makes it impossible not to hate Ray Lewis. And I will NEVER forget his deranged alibi for not committing murder of two men who were stabbed to death during post-game Super Bowl XXXIV party.

He says in his shitty book I Feel Like Going On: Life, Game, and Glory, AND I QUOTE:

“Remember, I was dressed out, had my jewelry on, my fine mink coat. I wasn’t about to start mixing it up looking like that. That’s the general rule of thumb when you’re doing the town and looking good. The nicer you’re dressed, the less inclined you are to get in a fight—that is, if you’re inclined in that way to begin with.

Dude dresses like that, he’s not looking for a fight. How I was dressed, it made no sense with what went down, those shots being fired, all of that. Forget what kind of statement my clothes might have made. Forget that I might have been a little loud, over the top. Point is, when you’re dressed like that, you’re off to the sidelines, and here were these gangbangers stepping out to us from the shadows, looking to make trouble—but it was trouble we drove right past.”

You think I’m fucking stupid, Ray. Look me in the eye and tell me I’m fucking stupid. I won’t do a thing about it.

But what I will do, if I ever become a professor of higher education (lol), is exactly what this Liberty University professor did when a student handed in a paper lauding the career and character of the NFL’s luckiest man.
