In 2000 NFL linebacker Ray Lewis was accused of murdering a guy after a party in Atlanta. Lewis was ultimately acquitted of all charges and went on to have a remarkable hall of Fame career. As the years past Lewis was looked at as a team leader through motivational speeches before games and his work around the community. His play on the field was great enough to overshadow his shortcomings in the past. After winning a second Super Bowl, Lewis retired and went into the world of sports broadcasting in 2013. While he was a superstar on the field his work in front of the camera needed work. Some say Lewis was to aggressive and lacked professionalism in certain areas. Though seen as a blemish to some, I see it as a major accomplishment, to be accused of murder, to offering your football expertise to the masses is nothing to looked down on.

This isn't a certain person but the actual brand of Call of Duty. Call of duty has been at the forefront of first person shooter game and was really the only one i knew of before friends started telling me of other games within that genre. My first time playing Call of Duty it was Black Ops 2 and I was hooked ever since, it was the only game i played for a year straight. So as a new fan, when Call of Duty: Ghost came out I preordered it and couldn't wait to play and to be honest I was disappointed. I wasn't the only one that had negative thoughts about the game, it was really a huge let down for many fans. So when it as tie for another cycle of the game, they released Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 which restored faith back into the brand, as some customers felt upset about the release of Ghost.
