BALTIMORE - Referee Gene Steratore turned on his microphone to greet the captains of the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens for the pregame coin toss Thursday night. "Good evening, men," Steratore said. "It's good to be back. " The stadium erupted in a roar. Yes, the real refs are back. Official harmony is restored to the NFL. Steratore and his seven-man crew donned their familiar stripes for the first game of Week 4 after 3 weeks of replacement officials created moments of chaos throughout the league.

BALTIMORE - Make no mistake, Father Time will eventually win these races. He is the only unbeatable opponent in any sport and has no intention of ending his winning streak. But Baltimore Ravens elder statesmen Ray Lewis and Ed Reed keep adding distance to what is normally a sprint for professional athletes. If the average NFL career is a 100-meter dash, Reed, 33, is running a 1,600. Lewis, 37, is halfway through a marathon. Sooner or later, these stalwarts of defense will reach a point where they can't do it anymore, but nobody's willing to bet on when that day will come.

IT'S USUALLY TOUGH to get kicked out of Philadelphia's Fraternal Order of Police. You really have to screw up. Worse than, say, the cop who allegedly beat his girlfriend with a closed fist and left her a voice mail threatening to "stomp your f---ing heart out. " Or the officer convicted of child endangerment for pointing a loaded Glock at a kid who changed the radio station in his truck at the Police Academy. Or the cop who allegedly forced a suspect to perform oral sex on him in his police cruiser.

Ray Lewis, the retired Philadelphia police captain who became a hero to the Occupy Wall Street movement, will not face legal consequences for wearing his old uniform at protests, a Police Department spokesman said Monday. "He will not be arrested," said Lt. Raymond Evers, spokesman for Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey. "He's exercising his First Amendment rights, and we're fine with that," Evers said. That position is in stark contrast to a letter Ramsey signed in November demanding that Lewis "immediately cease and desist" from wearing his old uniform in public.

Retired Philadelphia Police Capt. Ray Lewis, who gained national attention with his defiant, in-uniform protest and subsequent arrest at Occupy Wall Street, made his first appearance with Occupy Philly on Monday afternoon. Lewis, 60, had been chastised in letters from Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey and the Fraternal Order of Police after he was arrested in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park on Nov. 17, wearing his old uniform. Again donning his uniform Monday on Independence Mall, Lewis asserted his right to free speech, calling his choice of clothing a "visual symbol" of the 24 years he devoted to police work.

NEW YORK - A retired Philadelphia police captain arrested during an Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City is set to resolve his case without jail time or probation. Former Capt. Ray Lewis took Manhattan prosecutors' offer Wednesday to get the disorderly conduct case closed if he avoids re-arrest for six months. Lewis has acknowledged he disregarded police orders not to block a street during a protest in Manhattan's Financial District in November. He said he was trying to make a point about holding corporations responsible for their roles in the financial crisis.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady and the New England Patriots made it to the AFC championship game with a high-powered offense that piled up points and yards. Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens got there with a hard-hitting defense that made it a major challenge for opponents to move the ball. On Sunday, one of those teams will advance to the Super Bowl because, most likely, of what they do best. "We've got our hands full this week," Lewis said. "You watched what they did last week against Denver, just the way they came out and ran their offense, how efficient [Brady]

A RETIRED city police captain who's been wearing his uniform to Occupy Wall Street was given written notice by Commissioner Charles Ramsey and the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police that they do not support his protest attire. If FOP President John McNesby has his way, the retired captain, Ray Lewis, a 24-year veteran, would be booted from the FOP and lose his retirement benefits. "I champion him for going up there and pleading his case, but he shouldn't have done it in a police uniform," McNesby said.
