Subby, I see what you did here and it sucks.

Say what you want, the man is an engaging speaker. And he knows football. Which is more than you can say for a lot of ESPN's "analysts".
 
2013-03-13 12:32:58 PM  
I'm curious if HR over at ESPN gives a rats ass about journalism (admittedly Ray would be a 'personality' rather than a sports journalists), but every time I flip over to that channel it seems to be all 'personalities', trolls, and sycophant . Even former reporters have transitioned trying to become 'personalities' and I really cant stand most of them.

As long as he keeps his born-again LeJesus crap off the airwaves, I'm fine with it.

With you 100%. I'm sure they'll tell him not to be prasin' Jesus on air because its bad for ratings.

God has never made a mistake. That's just who He is, you see.... GlobalStrategic MapleSyrup Reserve  , if you knew, if you really knew the way God works, He don't use people who write bad headlines on FARK for His glory.

HOTY usually involves a joke that hasn't been made repeatedly in dozens of threads for years.
 
2013-03-13 12:36:50 PM  
Oh yes, Ray, one more example of how money buys innocence and religion can be used to excuse anything.
 
2013-03-13 12:38:03 PM  
Does this mean that Michal Strahan is stepping down?

I wouldn't be surprised.  That dude's got his hands pretty full.
 
2013-03-13 12:38:25 PM  
I can picture him getting all excited and emotional over the smallest of things and then clamoring on and on incoherently.  It'll be a fun mess to watch for about fifteen minutes.

He can do play by play if a knife fight breaks out.

If he were to host his own show, that would be one thing. Otherwise, I don't see how being an "engaging speaker" is a particular benefit to an analyst who would share floor and talking time with other analysts in the studio. If anything, during his "turn", he would bust out an impassioned yet utterly meaningless soliloquy, and the benefit to us as viewers would be he would just leave less time for Ditka or someone else to say something trite and stupid.

Don't know about that, but I know it means Ray has 1 year to prove himself an effective broadcaster. Tony Gonzales wants a desk job and just put off retirement for one more year.
 
2013-03-13 12:56:41 PM  
Golf clap, subs
 
2013-03-13 12:58:10 PM  
When it comes to hard hitting interviews, I bet he kills it.

ManRay: Tony Gonzales wants a desk job and just put off retirement for one more year.


Aside from being a tremendous football player, he just looks and acts like he was created in a petri dish in top secret lab with the specific intent to become a television personality of some kind.
 
2013-03-13 01:06:15 PM  
When someone retires at a pretty young age, its common for them to take a stab at something new.

Incorrigible Astronaut:   As long as he keeps his born-again LeJesus crap off the airwaves, I'm fine with it.

If Ray doesn't succeed on ESPN, he could go into televangelism.    Let that sink in for a moment.

So, lets all watch Ray on ESPN, and talk about how great he is.
 
2013-03-13 01:26:48 PM  
Hang in there, Rae Carruth! If they'll hire Ray Lewis and Michael Irvin, there has got to be future for you at ESPN (if and when you ever get out of prison)!

ESPN is not Fox Sports.  What does Strahan have to do with this?

Oh.  My bad.  I didn't think of that...
I never watch the commentaries between games.  This is why I didn't know...

He'll fit right in at ESPN, then.

Take away his phony baloney emotional nonsense and you still have a man who knows his shiat.  He'll be good if he sticks to his X's and O's.
 
2013-03-13 02:30:13 PM  
I like the headline because it makes a clever reference to those guys Lewis killed.

The ones in Atlanta, I mean.
 
2013-03-13 02:31:44 PM  
Maybe he can do a little back-stabbin on a couple people at his new job, like, Collinsworth, Cowherd, Bayless, Stevie A, ect...or at least knock em out.
 
2013-03-13 02:32:39 PM  
+1 for subby.

Will not watch any show with Ray Lewis on it. Even if he is smart about football, every time I've seen him open his mouth on camera a torrent of stupid Jesus crap follows. I'm not sure he's capable of talking about anything else.

It's the  result of his vegan lifestyle.
 
2013-03-13 03:01:13 PM  
you people take this shiat way too seriously.
 
2013-03-13 03:06:06 PM  
I guess he's finally going to have to clean that bloody white suit.
 
2013-03-13 03:11:00 PM  
Is he replacing Merrill Hoge?  Please say yes.
 
2013-03-13 03:21:00 PM  
I am OK with this as long as he has to kill Tony Siragusa during the half time show at the Super bowl next year.
 
2013-03-13 03:29:48 PM  
Frak, I thought we had seen the last of that giant yump.
