Ray Lewis Tried To Say That A Tweet From Colin Kaepernick's Girlfriend Kept Him From Getting A Job With The Ravens
LBS- “When me and Steve Bisciotti were talking, this is what we were talking about, Judy (Bautista). We were talking about giving this kid an opportunity to get back in the National Football League. Look, this is what I wanted to share with people. I have been fighting for this kid behind the table like nobody has. Nobody had this kid a job in the National Football League. I can say I did. I’ve never been against Colin Kaepernick. But I am against the way he’s done it.
“But then his girl (Colin Kaepernick’s girlfriend) goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn’t know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed. Steve Bisciotti has said himself, ‘how can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?”
Lewis then said it was the tweet from Nessa that undid the deal.
“The only thing that went bad was that image when she tried to make us racist individuals. That’s the sad part about this story.”
Ahh, what terrible timing! Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend finally let her frustrations boil over onto the internet ten hours after hearing that Ravens' owner Steve Bisciotti had shunned the suggestions of those that he's put in charge of personnel management, and it turns out she completely sabotaged the deal they were totally in the process of hammering out! That breaking news from a trusted source at ESPN wasn't legitimate, it was just a little white lie to throw Colin Kaepernick off the scent
of a surprise contract like he's a 15 year old girl who was snooping around asking about her Sweet 16!
Can you believe it? I thought Jesus would be more anal about checking his e-mail, but apparently it the all-powerful four whole days to get back to Steve Bisciotti and let him know that it is - indeed - okay to sign a quarterback who believes in equality. Just so happens he got that notification at the exact same second as he got the notification that his potential signal caller's significant other implied that he was a slave owner. Man, if Colin Kaepernick didn't have bad luck then he'd have no luck at all!
In all seriousness, there's no chance that Ray Lewis realizes that by referencing a meme that's over a month old and flew under the radar of almost everyone that doesn't spend too much time on the internet he basically made it even more accurate, right? I mean, this absurdly unbelievable justification is an even more desperate attempt of saving face for Steve Bisciotti than the first time he took it upon himself to tell Colin Kaepernick to stand up and shut up. If I were Nessa I would retweet that right now, because Ray Lewis has never been more guilty of sounding stupid in an effort to protect the image of the guy that profited off his hard work for over a decade. That over-the-top comparison is as relevant as it's ever been, and it's because one of the least self aware people on the planet just 'Unchained' it's applicability.
