Not Everybody Loves Ray

Everybody loves Raymond, but not everybody loves Ray Lewis. Not everybody believes this Raymond. In fact, CBS' Boomer Esiason was vocal on Sunday about his opinion of what Ray Lewis knew about a Super Bowl murder in 2000. There may not be a more polarizing figure in the sports world right now.
