Ray Lewis: Super Bowl Blackout Was No Accident

Remember when Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said that former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis' speeches didn't make any sense?

He might have been on to something. 

Lewis said he believes the blackout that happened during this past Super Bowl with his Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers was no accident.

"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing -- because I don't know facts," Lewis said to USA Today. "But you're a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. [Laughs] No way.

"You cannot tell me somebody wasn't sitting there and when they say, 'The Ravens [are] about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.' ... That's a huge shift in any game, in all seriousness. And you see how huge it was because it let them right back in the game."

Let me ask Mr Lewis something. What would the NFL or the City of New Orleans gain by turning off the lights off in this game? The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. Why would they want to stop it?

And he thinks the city of New Orleans would really want to help one of their biggest NFC rivals? Yeah right.

49ers CEO Jed York trolled Lewis' s comments by saying on Twitter: "There is no conspiracy, "I pulled the plug." 


I'm glad I'm not the only one who found the humor in what Lewis said. Maybe he can find work on that conspiracy show with Jesse Ventura because his career as an NFL commentator may be short-lived if he keeps talking about conspiracies. 

I think the NFL should conspire to keep Lewis off the air so he won't embarrass himself further.

And, besides, if anyone sabotaged the Super Bowl, anyone who saw The Dark Knight Rises knows it would have been Bane!
