Charlie Sheen on the NFL Playoffs: "The Ravens are going to win ... it's Ray Lewis' year"

Following his honest and entertaining interview with Piers Morgan (airs tonight at 9 p.m.,) earlier this week guest Charlie Sheen was gracious enough to share a few moments as part of an exclusive, behind the scenes interview.

Joining Digital Producer Jason Kurtz in the studio, the actor explained why he'd agreed to return to the program after having first been interviewed on "Piers Morgan Tonight" amidst a whirlwind period of media attention and public scrutiny following his departure from CBS's "Two and a Half Men."

"He treated you pretty fair," said Kurtz, referring to the interview that's since been dubbed "Round 1." "Is that part of the reason you came back?"

"Absolutely. I've thought about visiting in the past couple of years – a lot sooner than this – because of the time we had the first time," explained Sheen. "But he's an absolute pro, and a perfect gentleman."

A noted sports fan, who's portrayed many an athlete on both television and in film, Kurtz asked Sheen to do a bit of football foreshadowing:

"Let's talk NFL, Super Bowl prediction?"

"It's going to be the 'Har-Bowl'," said the man who made the character Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn in "Major League" legendary.

"Ravens/Niners," clarified the show's digital producer.

"Yes, and the Ravens are going to win. It's Ray Lewis' year."

    See i guess everyone makes mistakes and deserves a 2nd ( in charlie 100 ) chance. So were going to give it and tell the 201 113th congress ( the worst in the history of america ) the Gangs the bloods and the crips, Red vs blue, Left to the right ( though the left made no secret meetings to make pacts to not compromise on a thing even that the sun will come up tomorrow ) Idiots!!!!! But, Now the american people will compromise for their children and define the 2nd amendment that assult weapons ( semi-autorifles and any guns which fire 10 bullets in 2 seconds, ive seen it ) will be defined as such every american will know will be illegal and prohibited. By the time your children in highschool now graduate college. God Bless America>>>>>>>>>

    Piers, Your interview with Charlie Sheen was very disconcerting to this faithful viewer (of yours). It felt as though you were really "sucking up" to him. To this viewer, he is the "Lance Armstrong" of TV and the entertainment field. He was given a royal legacy by his father, and totally trashed it. And all because of "doping." How ironic that he was chosen for an interview at this particular time.

    No one can have a civilized debate with you because you know NOTHING about guns! Do you even realize that a shot gun can do a heck of a lot more damage then an AR 15? Do you know that there are people that will go hunt with an AR15...it probably isn't there top choice but you can hunt with it. Do you realize that an AR isn't really that scary? Most of the stuff on the AR is just cosmetic and has nothing to do with the way the gun shots. Do you realize that you can sport shot with an AR? Take some time to do some research on this gun before you get on tv calling it a big mean killing machine. Go out to the range and shot one, you might learn a thing or two! Oh and by the way to answer your question "Why would someone want an AR15" well I will give you my answer. I am a very small woman and the shot gun leaves big bruises on me and has a mean kick. Some of the more powerful handguns are hard for me to load and shot. The AR15 is an ideal weapon for someone my size because it is fairly easy for me to shot. Oh and not every AR15 is an automatic in fact most of them aren't an automatic. An automatic would be an M16! Almost every state has a ban on automatic weapons.

    one of the Gods of Hollywoododds were asked to come and talk with Morgan tonight. after the other day when he had two women on to bully and put in there places. so what do you think is next, what will they ask him to go out there and make us backward low life usa trash think is a great idea. I see by the news the group are back together and its time to get us to see the light. I see it so clear, did Jeep sent our jobs to China how is that did some one lie? Or is it just another day in the USA now. Hollywood killed the 20 kids by there blood sick movies they show and no one wants to call them on it and stop it. for they are like the unions now they are to big to powerful to shut down. sad isn't it. One was to help people, the other was to make people think. Now its just control and money. Our fore father were men what is now not so much!
    Mr. English man hear me, go back to a saver country that you love. Leave us we are not worth your hate and time. But understand you did not beat us we beat you, and you didn’t have to save us we saved you. Jon steward working with you I see. But understand if the Jews had guns may be they would not have gone quit in to that night but die fighting, may be there would have been less of them being put to death.
    To stand and get killed by some one that is going to clearly beat you to death with a bat, but say but only one person was beat to death and both didn’t have to die is sick. Morgan you are not a nice man you are a heartless jerk. I’m a shame you are in the USA with me. You are shocked with us! After all that your country has done to it own people. Wow that take the cake doesn’t it.

    N. F.L Playoff Games / Post-Season TO THE GAMBLER : Is like new years eve to the alcoholic Lake Worth, FL LAKE WORTH FLORIDA

    "Playoff games and the Super Bowl are to the compulsive gamblers what New Year's Eve is to the alcoholic," says Arnie Wexler, CCGC a leading expert on the subject of compulsive gambling and a recovering compulsive gambler himself.

    According to the National Gambling Study Commission, there are 5 million compulsive gamblers and 15 million at risk in the U.S.

    "I have spoken to more compulsive gamblers than anyone else in America over the last 44 years and have gotten hundreds of phone calls after playoff games and the Super Bowl from compulsive gamblers," Wexler says. "Some have spoken about embezzlements, white-collar crimes and destroying themselves and their families. Others were so desperate that they were contemplating suicide. "

    "Over the years, I have also spoken to many college and professional athletes who had a gambling problem," Wexler says. "In fact, an NCAA study a few years ago noted that there is a disturbing trend of gambling among athletes in college. Do you think that these people will get into the pros and then just stop gambling? "

    "Compulsive gamblers are very vulnerable during the NFL post season because they are looking for the "get out bet or lock bet,' Wexler says. "The media hype juices the gambler and - as this is an impulse disorder - many compulsive gamblers will be in action. And I wonder if any players might have a bet on the games. "

    "With all the games and the media hype about odds and betting lines, there is an explosion of betting on these games," Wexler continues. "I can't believe that newspapers carry ads from these so-called handicappers, who are really 'scandicappers.' It's also interesting to note how often the information is incorrect. "

    "I remember years ago when Skip Bayless, then of the Dallas Morning News, had a gorilla in the Dallas Zoo make football picks for them," Wexler says. "The gorilla's picks were doing better than the sports writers. I think the responsible thing to do would be for newspapers, radio and TV shows to carry a public service message "
    like gambling problem call 888 LAST BET

    ---

    Arnie Wexler is a recovering compulsive gambler who placed his last bet on April 10, 1968. Wexler has been fighting the injustice of how sports, society and the judicial system deal with compulsive gamblers for the last 44+ years. He and his wife run a national help line: 1-888-LAST BET.
