Be sure to set your DVR to NFL Network at 9PM tomorrow night for the next edition of America’s Game, featuring the 2012 Baltimore Ravens. The program is outstanding and it will undoubtedly be “must-see-TV.”

Adding to the shows allure is a little conspiracy theory served up by none other than Ray Lewis.

You’ve thought about it.

You’ve probably talked about it.

And I’m sure many, particularly fans of teams other than the Ravens dismissed the topic as silliness – perhaps even sheer lunacy.

And now Ray Lewis has said it and tomorrow night you will hear and see it for yourself.

Ray Lewis believes that the power outage during Super Bowl XLVII was the league’s way of not letting the game get completely out of hand, thus losing viewers and the thing the NFL covets most – MONEY!

“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,” Lewis said via USA Today.

”Now listen, if you grew up like I grew up — and you grew up in a household like I grew up — then sometimes your lights might go out, because times get hard. I understand that. 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 in the game.”

Let the debate begin…

Do you think that the Super Bowl power outage was staged by the league so that they would not lose their audience?
