    I skimmed a lot, I don't think there's anything there for Bama or Ray.

    My bad, I went straight t the second article and missed that deer antler spray (wtf?) was a banned substance.

    One of the former players on 610 this morning said that the stuff is all placebo but gets on the list because player X gets busted for testing positive, says 'but I had a high level of that because I took _____ (fill in placebo crap), I never took ______ (fill in PED)."

    So player X gets off and now some random thing that does jack squat is on the list.

    Sounded like a viable theory to me....

    Ray has never been tested positive in 17 years. I guess that's relative, because Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds never tested positive.

    However, I am suspect of the story because of the timing it was released. It seems very contrived and deliberate to release the story at the height of the media frenzy around Ray Lewis.

    If true, so be it.

    But if not true, that just sucks for Ray because he doesn't deserve this negative publicity at a time when we should be celebrating 17 great years in the league.

    Seriously, deer antlers? They couldn't find any sharks fins or black bear penis to give him? Sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo to me.

    He's done worse than this. He's done after this game anyway.

    It certainly can be, and is tested for. I have tested cancer patients for IGF-1 for years.

    So this spray stuff is because deer antlers grow at an amazing rate?

    What's next, players rubbing Viagra powder on their injured joints?

    You joke, but it's a vasodilator. It wouldn't surprise me if athletes have been testing its properties.

    People do whatever they think might give them an edge in their profession. Some are just more smart about it than others.

    This particular deer (Asian I think) grows exceptionally fast. As a result of this rapid growth, scientists were/are able to extract the makeup that causes this rapid growth (recovery) and have figured out a way to make it effective on humans.

    But this is all for naught--as it won't make any difference before Sunday. If proved valid, it would only affect his HOF chances I suspect.

    Now that's just funny! :spit:

    Even if it turns out to be true, there are lots of PED users already in the HoF. I suppose the caveat is that it was legal when they were playing, but the end result is still the same: PED users in the HoF.

    I was afraid it would offend people, but now that I see your post...I'm rolling with it.
