BTW, you backup link doesn't say shit to support your assertion about head shots.
No, it doesn't.

I'm hopeful that he'll stay mentally sharp through his lifetime because most of his very physical career has allowed head shots.
All I said was that I hope Ray does not
suffer any permanent effects from his NFL career, but those "head shots" would have been self-inflicted. Wasn't me that brought up "head shots" and I didn't post any frothy-mouthed hatred. I stated one opinion (I hope Ray does not suffer permanent damage) and a fact (he's taken helmet-to-helmet shots at defenseless players.
Because you can't argue that Ray Lewis doesn't take helmet-to-helmet shots at defenseless players.... He might not do it as often as, say, Rodney Harrison, but he does it. Ask Hines Ward. And I'm not even saying he's trying to hurt other players, or that he's doing it intentionally. Sometimes it happens. But you can't deny he does it.
