    Suspend him, take a first rounder from the team, fine the organization a half a mil, and declare the pats AFC champions. LOL.



    PS: I dont really think this but this is what the world thought after spygate and I do think PEDs is worse then Spying (or at least just as bad).

    I wonder how the SpyGate SoapBoxers like Peter King will handle this one.

    And no matter what, I LOVE that this is a vehicle for dispelling the completely BS story line that Ray Lewis is some kind of hero.

    He's a phony, a murderer, a cheater and a self-promotor.

    His ridiculous dance before games would is something I could not abide if a Pats player ever did anything like it.

    He's not why the Pats lost the AFC Champ game. And unlike the ridiculous fans of other teams who wanted game results reversed, I'm not calling for that.

    But Lewis is scum and the public buys him being some kind of saint, and it's truly a joke and sickening.

    True, seething hatred for this clown.

    (And true reverence and respect for Ed Reed).

    We all know where this is going - nowhere. Just imagine for a moment if it were Brady. In fact there would members here who would be orgasmic.

    It'll only be fair if this becomes a huge story and distraction before the SB. Let someone else go through the crap we had to endure before SB42, and that story wasn't even ****ing true! C'mon media do your jobs

    Deer Antler Spray??? :confused:

    Holographic stickers??? :eek:

    I'd have thought this was something cooked up by The Onion, if there wasn't an actual link to go to. Weird.

    But there's a banned substance, though. Big no no, Ray.

    But, then, it's not the Patriots, so nothing to see here, right? :bricks:

    If you're recovering from an injury like Rodney Harrison I really have a hard time coming down on these guys. I find Lewis to be a fraud and awful human being but to remain consistent I can't kill him for this. I look at all the ACL tears and how quickly players are coming back. Do people think this isn't happening with the help of banned substances? I think they're using them almost for certain and that includes Wes and Tom. I have no issue with it in those cases. It's much different than Merriman stacking 8 different steroids and HGH to gain a competitive advantage.

    I do agree that the national media needs to be consistent and kill Lewis like they did Rodney.

    Doesnt the same logic apply to taping signals. Did other teams do it? Please refer to my sig. The PATS are still treated by the media as if they were the only team doing it. The same should be done to Ray Lewis.

    Its not at least for now. I heard this on the radio on the HUB when I was grabbing my lunch. On my way home HUB was on comercial so I switched to EEI and they were not talking about and were talking football. Then I expected to read about it on ESPN but nothing.

    Personally, I think most or at least a large number of players do it. I am sure Lewis didn't just find this guy out of the blue. Personally, I don't even care.

    My only beef is the hypocrisy of the media and fans on these things. Rodney was blasted because he is a Patriot and already labeled a dirty player. Ray Ray will likely get a free pass because the media love him and the fans seem to ignore the little murder thing and think he is wonderful guy.

    Nobody ignores the "murder thing"--some people just realize that a person's whole life is not defined by whether his friends decide to stab someone in the middle of a brawl. Ray seems to be a mixed bag, like all other people. Oh and by the way, almost everyone in the NFL is on something illegal at one time or another, it is just more accepted than it is in baseball.

    The focus on the Pats is a COMPLIMENT. If the Lions did it, no one would care. The Pats are singled out because of their long running dominance that practically every fanbase envies, and thus tries to tear them down.

    Where did I disagree with you or bring up the taping? Of course they were all doing it. Guys with no ax to grind like Jimmy Johnson said as much. Old timers like Charlie Taylor and Dick Butkus laughed at it and said that was nothing you should have seen what Halas and Allen did.

    Ray is if nothing else smart. All you have to do is praise Jesus once at every corner and you've won over half the country right there. It doesn't matter what sins you're doing behind closed doors.

    LOL if this was Patriots' and was related to Gronk or Brady or Welker then I couldn't imagine how much bigger the story would be.

    I think this taints the Ravens' entire Super Bowl run. Without Lewis back and his whole retirement saga, no way they go on this run. There should be an * next to their entry as a participant in this year's game. :D

    This stuff has been around for a long time. It's FDA approved. You can buy it at Whole Foods, or GNC.

    Also, I heard about Ray Lewis and this Deer Spray back in 2011. Why is this news now?

    FDA approved and NFL approved are not one and the same.

    The OP's link leads to the original story, below:

    The zany story of two self ordained sports science entrepreneurs | Sports Illustrated

    "You're familiar with HGH, correct?" asked Key, referring to human growth hormone. "It's converted in the liver to IGF-1." IGF-1, or -insulin-like growth factor, is a natural, anabolic hormone that stimulates muscle growth. "We have deer that we harvest out of New Zealand," Key said. "Their antlers are the fastest-growing substance on planet Earth . . . because of the high concentration of IGF-1. We've been able to freeze dry that out, extract it, put it in a sublingual spray that you shake for 20 seconds and then spray three [times] under your tongue. . . . This stuff has been around for almost 1,000 years, this is stuff from the Chinese."


    IGF-1 is also a substance banned by the NCAA and by every major pro league. Alleging that the NFL warned players away from S.W.A.T.S.'s spray because it's a threat to "Big Pharma," Key boasted that S.W.A.T.S. is "the most controversial supplement company on Earth."


    I am sure it has nothing at all to do with some game being played Sunday.

    If this was a pats 53rd player on the roster, peter king and all will be screaming from the high horse. This hypocrisy is what pisses me off more than the infraction itself.

    Same reason a fake matt walsh story came out on a day when the team was going for 19-0. But this will get swept under "no big deal" because its not the patriots.
