Will Ray Lewis be remembered as one of the greatest linebackers of all time, or a man who tried to cover up murder?
It's a complex question to a complex individual.
Lewis, in the twilight of his career, announced he will retire at the end of 2012-2013 season, his 17th.
Yet, even with Lewis' testimony, his friends weren't convicted. In essence, he was convicted of covering up a non-criminal act.
That is the dilemma that is Ray Lewis. He is an inspiration on the field. He's hard hitting and savvy. His pre-game ritual is legendary, and makes over-the-hill couch potatoes feel like they can suit up and play.
But two men are dead, and Ray-Ray confessed to playing a role in that. But he was sentenced, served his time, and will wind up in the NFL Hall of Fame.
The question is, should he be?
