‘Blind Side’ author Michael Lewis suggests catalyst behind Michael Oher lawsuit: ‘Violence and aggression’

Author Michael Lewis revisited the Michael Oher saga in a recent interview as a judge in Tennessee agreed to end the conservatorship between the former NFL player and a Tennessee couple.

Lewis chronicled Oher’s journey in the book “The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game,” which was later adapted into a movie starring Sandra Bullock. Oher’s life was back in the spotlight in August when he claimed Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy lied about adopting him and alleged the family used his name, image and likeness to enrich themselves.

The author initially pinned the blame on the “Hollywood studio system” in an interview with The Washington Post when it came to the financials from the book and the movie. But as he promoted his new book about Sam Bankman-Fried in an interview with The Guardian, he appeared to change his tune.

Oher was selected with the 23rd pick of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens, where he played his first five NFL seasons. Oher went on to play for two more teams in his eight-year career.
