Ray Lewis unapologetic for 'squirrel dance' that upset Reggie Wayne

Ray Lewis played his last home game of his career on Saturday, and doesn't want to hear about how he 'disrespected' the Colts or anybody else by doing his little 'squirrel dance' as the game was about wrap up.

"It wasn't about them at that time," Lewis said via the Ravens' website and NFL.com. "That was about capping off a heck of a legacy of 17 years. When he (Wayne) was in Pop Warner playing football, I was in Baltimore. To salute my city that way, I guess the trot around the field was disrespectful, too. No. It wasn't even about them."

Wayne and Lewis are both products of the "U", the University of Miami, which Lewis notes that players from there are insanely competitive and hate to lose, and can't fault Wayne for his comments to a degree.

"The game was over," Lewis said. "I didn't go toward their sideline or make no big issue of that because I've never been that type of player. But (it was) to salute my city, knowing that people love to see that."

"It wasn't even about them," Lewis said. "It was about me honoring my team and honoring my city."
