So, the big news at today's Super Bowl media day involves a story implicating Ray Lewis used, or obtained, deer antler spary from some company named S.W.A.T. in his return from his torn triceps.

WHAT???

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/ray-lewis-doesn-t-wish-discuss-deer-antler-192122775--nfl.html

Sounds like some serious nonsense to me.  Anyone actually believe this?

You mean you believe that in this day and age a murderer took illegal and banned substances to get himself a 17 year career at linebacker in the NFL? How cynical you are. This would never happen. I mean yeah Lance Armstrong, but Ray Lewis? Ray? Nooooooo. He is pure as the mountain snow

This story is asinine.

Here's a medical analysis:

A bottle contains around 180 sprays, and a typical dose is three sprays. Thus, a single dose of deer antler velvet contains between 50 and 84 nanograms of IGF-1. In order to mimic the research study that found IGF-1 to have similar benefits to growth hormone you would need to consume between 1,500,000 to 906,000 sprays PER DAY: that’s between 8,333 to 5,033 bottles per day. Think of the cost alone.

Claiming that deer antler velvet is “… similar to HGH in that it aids in recovery. It helps build tissue, and strengthen tissue – more than you can ever do by training alone.” Is absurd. IGF-1, maybe, in high doses, but not deer antler velvet. Does anyone really think that ground-up deer antlers will result in increased performance similar to taking synthetic growth hormone? Recreational IGF-1 supplementation can range from 20,000 to 200,000 nanograms, while less then reported in the earlier study, you would still need to consume between 4 and 40 bottles per day, and the benefits would be anecdotal at best.

Poor Ray. He doesn't wish to discuss deer antlers or double murders at the Super Bowl. Too bad he didn't think of that before he did that

it always amuses me when people are surprised that guys in the NFL are possibly on something.

guys who are 300 pounds of pure muscle and seem to heal from serious injuries like its nothing....I mean you've got JJ watt wearing a knee brace on his elbow

is it natural for someone to tear their tricep and come back a few weeks later?

Might as well just drink the stuff, why bother "squirting" in your mouth.

Maybe he did, maybe he didn't.  All I know is, people listen to that jackass Micheal Felger WAYYYYYYY too much.  That guy is the biggest hack in TV history.  He is just a loser, plain and simple.  Totally a whiny, sore-loser type.  Which seems to fit Pats fans quite well.

You know, he beat my team in the SB once, but I don't begrudge the man.
