Reggie Wayne calls Ray Lewis' end-of-game dance 'disrespectful'

Not everybody appreciated the three-hour-long Ray Lewis tribute during Sunday's wild-card game between the Colts and Ravens. Lewis, who came into the league in 1996 and has been the face of the Ravens ever since, announced last week that he would retire at the end of the season.

Which meant that Sunday, his final game at M&T Bank Stadium would be about what Lewis has meant to the city and the franchise. And those celebrations manifested themselves in several iterations of Lewis' well-known pregame shimmy. Except because of the circumstances, fans were treated to it before and during the game. And that didn't sit well with Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne.

"I saw it as disrespectful," Wayne told WNDE in Indianapolis. "They'd already had a tribute every quarter."

Just before kickoff Sunday, Eye on Football's Will Brinson noted that, "If you didn't get chills and/or goose bumps (watching Lewis' dance), you either have no soul or you're a Steelers fan."

Or, it turns out, Reggie Wayne.
