Boomer Esiason Accuses Superbowler Ray Lewis of Lying About Murders, Says ‘Somebody Had to Do It’
Boomer Esiason can’t stand Ray Lewis, and last night during Superbowl coverage, he basically accused Lewis of withholding information in a murder case. Esiason said he was “not so sure” Lewis “gave us all the answers” regarding a double murder case the linebacker was involved in 13 years ago. Esiason did not provide any new information which suggests Ray Lewis was withholding evidence, but that didn’t stop Esiason from making the accusation anyway.
During a WFAN radio show on Monday, Esiason stood by his remarks, saying that although his co-announcer Shannon Sharpe “has a greater insight” about this situation than he does, Sharpe’s not talking. Esiason then said he refuses to let the murder case go.
“Now, (Sharpe) will not share that insight with me because he doesn’t feel like it’s fair, and I understand that 100 percent. But I also told Shannon, I said, ‘I can’t sit here again and just allow this to go — somebody has to be a voice of dissent and have the opposite viewpoint,’ ” Esiason said. Lewis pleaded guilty to an obstruction of justice charge in the case.
Lewis, who is headed for retirement, is considered one of the leaders of the Ravens Superbowl team, has found Christ, and has tried to put the 13 year old murders behind him, but announcers like Esiason refuse to let Lewis move beyond it.
What is remarkable is that ESPNs Rob Parker was given the boot for calling Redskins quarterback RG3 a ‘cornball brotha’, but Esiason can accuse Lewis of withholding information in a murder investigation without facing any repercussions.
