There was a thread about this earlier this year, and our hopes have been answered. Steve Bisciotti has made it official at today's press conference, Ray will be getting a statue to join Johnny Unitas at M&T bank stadium.

That's pretty cool. I wonder where they will put it. Will it be next to the Unitas one or on a different side?

Call me a troll all you want but based on Lewis' past and his reputation nation wide......this decision in my opinion (and I believe the opinion of the vast majority outside of Baltimore) is in VERY poor taste.


AHHHH man, i wish i could tell you that ravens fans and baltimore care about your opinion...but, not so much

I like how you are getting offended considering you could probably care less about Baltimore sports

Trying to shift the topic back to the statue and not shaming this guy, I hope that statue goes on the side without Unitas. Its a perfect open area and you can see Baltimore Colts' sports legend and see the Ravens' sports legend on the other side.

Too bad we aren't in the business of catering to the rest of the nation. If that were the case, Baltimore wouldn't even have a football team right now. We are family and respect Ray Lewis for what he is and who he's become. We see the man more than the one event that all the haters want to paint him with.

Sorry if the statue offends you, because you obviously don't understand.

There isn't much news in that article. Just things we already knew from the State of the Ravens presser.

Why should Baltimore care about anyone outside of Baltimore or what they think? And I can absolutely 100% certain guarantee that the vast majority of people outside of Baltimore have no opinion whatsoever about Lewis getting a statue or not. The vast majority of people outside of Baltimore do not even know who Lewis is. So the opinion of one whiny little troll makes no difference to anyone.

Why don't you go back and post on a forum of your team that is not a SB champion this year.

I'm a Ravens' fan and here's what I don't understand:
Joe Paterno allegedly participates in obstruction of justice in some terrible crimes. Penn State removes his statue.
Ray Lewis is *convicted* of obstruction of justice in two homicides and gets a statue. (Note that those murders remain unsolved to this day.) I know he was a great football player, but in my opinion, that type of person does not deserve a statue. Maybe I am the only Ravens fan who feels this way.

To those who agree with Penn State removing Paterno's statue but think Lewis deserves one, that seems like hypocrisy. To those who think both deserve statues - well, at least you're consistent.

Not sure why you are trying to speak for the people outside of Baltimore.

I've never stepped foot in Baltimore and I love the fact that he will have a statue, the majority of people will be fine with it or simply won't care.

Nobody cares what the haters think about him getting a statue, their opinions are irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
