Ray Lewis Show Us His Black Card; Offers to Pay Ahmad Brooks Fine
I don’t think the NFL takes the Black Card as a way of payment for fines, but maybe Brooks has one of those Paypal readers where he can get the money Rev Ray.
Lewis was upset that Brooks was flagged for hitting Drew Brees with the Clothesline from Hell, so he went on one of his sermons.
“When you do your job, when you make the perfect play, if he takes the same hit and hits a quarterback like Peyton Manning who’s 6’4″-6’5″, he hits him in his chest area … Drew Brees is 6-foot or shorter. When you look at the hit, Ahmad Brooks took the hit and hit him exactly where he’s supposed to hit him. Drew Brees’ neck slid down to that man’s arm. For that to be a flag is embarrassing.
“The second part that’s embarrassing about this is for Drew Brees to say ‘I got hit so hard I knew it had to be a flag.’ This is the National Football League! I don’t understand what that means! When you get hit like that from the blind side, it’s supposed to hurt,” exclaimed Lewis.
“But I’ll tell you this: if they fine this kid, I’m going to do something personally — I’m going to pay half. I’m going to pay half his fine. Because of one reason — defenders have to be respected as men before anything else. They’re men. They have kids, they have families. You have to treat everybody fair and everybody the same in this game.
Then Lewis flashed his black card.
Just like a Reverend…
