If you watched "A Football Life" about Ray Lewis and had absolutely no prior context about him, you would think he was on the verge of a Nobel Peace Prize and the absolute role model for children everywhere.
Ray Lewis is the perfect example of how the media creates whatever they want in players....
Best case scenario Lewis lied under oath about a murder.....yet he is pitched as THE ideal guy you would want on your team (that is collective package and not just on the field).
I admit to being a Ray Lewis fan, but I wasn't that aware of what type of person he was prior to the incident in ATL. I guess all you can say is, apparently, a person can redeem themselves after taking someone's life.
