    Why is Ray Lewis looked at more favorably than OJ Simpson?

    Both great football players, who are thought to be murderers. One is viewed as the scum of the earth, the other one is a sweet prince.

    Because Ray Lewis didn't actually do it.

    Because of Simpsons multiple visits to the pen, and the Bronco chase.

    Ray didn't get caught up like that.
    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    Extremely debatable.

    That kind of makes sense. OJ's thing was such a spectacle, from the Bronco chase to the trial. Ray and his lawyers somehow managed to keep everything quiet, and things were quickly forgotten.

    Add to the sensationalism that the media made of "the famous black athlete murdering his white wife".

    I have asked this question many times.

    While both were legally deemed innocent of the murder, OJ's was WAAAY crazier due to fore mentioned Bronco chase, and the glove...it was basically as close as you can get to guilty while maintaining innocence. He straight up plotted to kill his wife and her man. The media made a spectacle out of it.

    Ray is largely believed to be involved in his situation by the logical, but no one knows to what degree. He could have been restraining someone while his boy did the stabbing, and he threw out his suit...an accomplice vs OJ straight up 1st degree. The media didnt latch on to the story like with OJ...will still leaves the question open of why? (didnt the media provide same level of coverage?)

    Tosses his bloody suit into a fast food dumpster, murder charges were dismissed due to a plea agreement, Ray admits to giving misleading information to authorities, a murder did occur, yet no sentence has been given to anyone for the crime, Lewis reaches a settlement with the 4 year old daughter of one of the victims, and also reaches a settlement with the family of the other victim.

    Somebody died, but it wasn't Ray Lewis who did the killing. He hung out with the wrong crowd.

    2 people died. And Ray Lewis was left with a bloody suit. Did his "wrong crowd" poor blood on him?

    Well although it might not be right and we still don't know what happened with Ray Lewis that night he only pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice.

    I think certain people are naive about the things that went on that night and Lewis could have certainly had more involvement in those murders than we will ever know.

    As for OJ, it's clear he did it and got off because the jury decided to overlook the facts and be distracted by all the ******** surrounding that trial.

    The problem is too is that the guys Lewis was accused of being accomplices with in that murder were acquitted.

    Following a Super Bowl XXXIV party in Atlanta on January 31, 2000, a fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. Lewis and two companions, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were questioned by Atlanta police, and 11 days later the three men were indicted on murder and aggravated-assault charges. The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant.[36]

    Lewis' attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, of the Atlanta law firm Garland, Samuel & Loeb, negotiated a plea agreement with Howard, where the murder charges against Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting, and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.[12] Lewis admitted he gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings. Superior Court Judge Alice D. Bonner sentenced Lewis to 12 months' probation, the maximum sentence for a first-time offender,[37] and he was fined $250,000 by the NFL, which was believed to be the highest fine levied against an NFL player for an infraction not involving substance abuse.[38] Under the terms of the sentence, Lewis could not use drugs or alcohol during the duration of the probation.

    Oakley and Sweeting were acquitted of the charges in June 2000.[39] No other suspects have ever been arrested for the crime.
