The difference is perception. You'll never go without a comment about Vick but nobody says anything bad about Ray because he plays angry and is a hall of famer. People look at Ray as a role model because of his play on the field and supposedly devout "christian" but let's not forget had that whole murder thing he was never punished for and has 6 kids with 4 different women and was never married to atleast 3 of them....
Plenty of people make mistakes, very horrible ones actually. But it's absolutely ridiculous that a person can get away with murder because of money.
I think you arn't quite familiar with reality. "Paying off the families" has nothing to do with criminal court. You say Lewis got off with a plea bargain, but you fail to mention none of the three (he or his two friends that he testified against) were convicted because the court ruled it was self defense, as it wasn't just like he and two buddies decided to go take out a knife and find someone to stab. You complete misrepresent what happened when you take stupid stances like that one. There's also no proof that he was the one that stabbed the person.. so calling him a murderer is also incorrect.
You also fail to mention all the needy families and disadvantaged youth he's helped over the years with his charity work.
Not suprised from some of you, to be honest.. but for such a horrible guy and a murderer, its funny how a nice guy like Peyton Manning didn't have any problem waiting for him alone in the locker room with his family to share a kodak moment after the game. He's not the person some of you want to make him out to be.. and its kind of silly the way some talk of him.
Again, i hope he gets his chamionship, and i hope to high Heaven that someday we get a player or two like him on this team.
