The good news is that linebacker Ray Lewis
may not be facing many questions about a 13-year-old controversy during
media day.  The bad news is that there’s a fresh topic into which the
assembled reporters will want to delve when Lewis and the Ravens gather
at the Superdome for the annual exercise in journalistic hysteria.


According to Sports Illustrated, Lewis contacted a company owned by a former male stripper to obtain a deer-antler velvet extract after tearing his triceps in October.


Mitch Ross of S.W.A.T.S reportedly videotaped the phone call from Lewis.


“Spray on my elbow every two hours?” Lewis asked Ross regarding the
extract, via Philly.com.  (Quotes from the conversation don’t appear in
the free online version of the Sports Illustrated article; presumably, Philly.com gleaned the info from the full article.)


“No,” Ross said.  “Under your tongue.”


Later, Lewis asked Ross to “just pile me up and just send me everything you got, because I got to get back on this this week.”


The problem for Lewis is that the extract contains IGF-1, which is on
the NFL’s list of banned substances.  For the NFL, the problem is that
Lewis will retire after Sunday.  So there’s really nothing that can be
done — unless Lewis admits to it on Tuesday and the league puts the
investigative process into the highest gear possible.

Even then, it’s impossible that the matter would progress through all available appeals before Sunday night.

Not surprising in the least.

So that means the Raven's wins vs Denver and New England are tainted right? I expect to see a huge uproar from ESPN and other talking heads discussing this cheating!! /nochanceinhell

But did he videotape the game from the wrong section of the stadium?  That is far more damning than steroid use or killing a person.  Goodell Out!

This should be upsetting and embarrassing for all NFL fans.  Not that he was using PEDs, but that he got them from male stripper.

Wait a second an athlete cant come back from a torn tricep naturally in 2 months???

 

Just to recap some stuff in the old Ray Lewis tore his tricep thread, how awesome is it to have DRS here:

 

 


It's almost always an acute injury, although there can be a chronic underlying component.

More common in steroid users.

Just sayin'.

 

 

 


He will not be back this year.

Why aren't PEDs just legal for NFL players? This news surprises nobody and, more importantly, nobody gives a shit. Just let them turn into behemoths and kill each other on the field. The Romans got to watch people die for sport, why the fuck can't we?

I can't wait at the outrage from Peter King. "Ray told me that praying every day and working really hard miraculously healed him! I can't believe he had the nerve to lie to me!"

 

On the bright side for Lewis, no one will be asking about a 13 year old murder at media day now...

Apparently PFT is reporting that Lewis and his friends confronted the two deer after a SB party.  After both deer were killed, their antlers were removed and Lewis' group fled in a limo to his girlfriend's house where their clothes were later burned.

There won't be any outrage from anybody. And just like all the other stuff about Ray Lewis, it will be overlooked and swept away by the 'isn't he a proud warrior' swooning.

I hope someone at media day asks Ray, "what was your reaction when you asked the male stripper if you only had to rub the mysterious liquid he sent you on your skin and he responded, 'no, no, you need to spray it under your tongue.'"

The awesome part is this moron seemed to think the way it worked was by rubbing it on the area he injured rather than ingesting it.

All are definitely taking something. 

 

Whether that something is a banned substance is a different question.

6.    Elk Antler Velvet:

Testosterone Booster. Elk antler velvet isn’t just the “fuzz” growing on the animal’s antler, it’s derived from the whole cartilaginous affair, which is removed from the animal (humanely), dried and ground into a powder (predominantly in Canada and New Zealand). Due to growth proteins called Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGF-1 & IGF-2), this “velvet” creates an endogenous increase in testosterone production, increasing in the body’s ability to naturally and rapidly regenerate tissue & bone (antlers are the fastest growing animal tissue known to science – growing upwards of an inch per day).

 

For personal reasons, I eschew animal products from my diet, so I do not myself use elk antler velvet. Nonetheless, and from what I understand, antler removal does not harm the animal, and is in fact a humane and necessary safety precaution that helps prevent the elk from attacking each other. The extraction process is heavily regulated by the Canadian government and the USDA, so make sure your product is government certified (a precaution against bacterial infection incident to chronic wasting disease that occurs in hoofed animals). Currently most of this product is exported to China but is readily available online.

 

Administer in capsule or powder form, 250mg/day post-workout or before sleep.

Here is a pretty decent write up of why Lewis used this:

 

http://www.bodybuild...ntlervelvet.htm

 

Deer antler velvet also contains male and
female hormones, including Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-1) - a
hormone that's produced in the liver as a response to growth hormone
(HGH) stimulation.
 


What Is HGH, And How Does It Relate To IGF-1?

HGH stands for Human Growth Hormone (also known as Somatotropin), an amino acid produced in the pituitary gland of the brain. HGH plays an important role in human development by affecting skeletal growth.

 


HGH is continually produced throughout the human lifecycle, and
continues to regulate the body's metabolism. HGH is carried into the
liver and partially converted into IGF-1 (see below).
