Ravens to Build Statue of Ray Lewis

According to owner Steve Bisciotti, The Ravens will construct a statue of Ray Lewis outside M&T Bank Stadium. This seems....wrong.  

"I think he set himself apart in Baltimre sports history...and I will not be surprised if there is one there in the next year or two."

WORST.IDEA. EVER.

Like many others...I cannot stand him...his interviews, his I am god attitude, how he thinks he such a inspiration to everyone...

No respect for Baltimore if this happens

My two cents.

Surprisingly reasonable discussion for most. 

Lewis is what he is; a great football player who is a hypocrite of sorts off the field.  He's like most people, then, and that's fine.  But I thought it was weird when Jordan received a statue, and Coamerica still looks a little weird with the characters in the outfield.  I mean, Ty Cobb was a great baseball player but also a virulent racist and apparently was fine beating up disabled people in the stands.  I guess in general, I'm fine with a guy getting his plaque in a HoF, but turning the memory of him intoa faux deity seems a bit much.
