Hosts Michael Brandvold, Tommy Sommers, and Mark Cicchini get into a discussion with Brett regarding Ray Rice.  Bouchy said what surprised him was the response to the video when everybody knew what had already happened and the reason Rice was released was because the NFL and the Ravens were going to lose corporate partners. Then he went on to compare the Ray Rice situation to Ray Lewis and call out Steve Bisciotti, comparing him to Donald Sterling.

Bouchy said,“Two days prior [to the video being released of Rice knocking out his then fiancé], they were talking about what a great guy Ray Rice was.  They were trying to rehabilitate his image and then you look at the Baltimore Ravens and what happened with Ray Lewis.

On January 31st, 2000, Ray Lewis was in [an] altercation which left 2 people dead.  There was a brawl.  He was indicted. He went to a trial.  He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and you know what? Back then there wasn’t social media and it just kind of died and it went away and now there’s a statue out front of the Raven’s stadium.

It is appalling that nobody has really brought that up about the Ravens.  Steve Bisciotti, who’s the Raven’s owner who put that statue up?  You can put him in the same class as Donald Sterling, from my stand point, because what he did was disgusting because of the double standard that was created with Ray Lewis.”

“We don’t know what happend, but at the end of the day, we know something happened that he was a part of and how you can celebrate him like that, with a statue, is appauling to me” he continued.

Bouchy also discussed the LA KISS, their dismal season, the tv show “4th And Loud, and much, much more.
