Ray Lewis: Super Bowl Blackout Truther

Remember the blackout during Super Bowl XLVII? Great moment in sports history, right? Actually not really and it did mar a little memories of the game, which was a classic. It has been widely reported that a faulty piece of equipment was to blame but former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis thinks it was something a little more nefarious.

Lewis provided his thoughts on the blackout during the newest installment of America's Game from the NFL Network and USA Today was able to pull out the juiciest statements from him.
"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing - because I don't know facts. But You're a zillion dollar company, and your lights go out? No. No way. 
 "But you cannot tell me somebody wasn't sitting there and when they say, 'The Ravens (are) about to blow them out. Man, we better do something.'...That's a huge shift in any game, in all seriousness. And as you see how huge it was because it let them right back into the game."
If you read his quotes closely, you will see all the trademarks for conspiracy theory making. The whole thought of "I don't know anything and I'm not accusing anybody of anything, I'm just asking questions" just makes this even more of a comical exercise.

And it does not make sense that the NFL would blatantly try to sabotage its crown jewel and potentially drive some viewers away during a 30-minute stoppage so that the game would be more competitive. Plus, why would the NFL choose to do it during this Super Bowl as opposed to any time before during big blowouts?

Obviously it is a ludicrous idea that does not deserve any legitimate analysis, but at least we now know who to ask about Bilderberg or Bohemian Grove. And who knows, maybe Lewis is tight with Alex Jones?
