Ray Lewis Denies Using NFL-Banned Deer Velvet Extract Ingredient

By Chad Love

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis is denying reports that he used a banned substance derived from deer antlers to help recover from an injury.
 
From this story in the Washington Post:
When Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis tore his triceps last fall and worked his way back onto the field with a remarkably quick recovery, he was given a product that contains a substance banned by the NFL, Sports Illustrated reports. Lewis, asked about the report during media day, denied using the substance and pointed out that he has never tested positive for banned substances. Mitch Ross, a co-owner of Sports with Alternatives to Steroids said he spoke with Lewis after he was injured Oct. 14 and that Lewis requested products that could speed his recovery time. Among the treatments was deer-antler spray, which contains IGF-1, which is on the list of substances banned by the league.

According to the story, IGF-1 is a natural, anabolic hormone derived from deer antler that stimulates muscle growth, which the NFL views as a performance-enhancing drug. The owner of the company Lewis allegedly received his spray from uses deer from New Zealand to extract the substance.

Thoughts? Are there any clean professional athletes left in the world?

Meh. I don't really care. It's all for diversion, but there's too much money in it all, which is why people think they should care.

Ray Lewis was also in a fight with friends where someone in the other group of people was stabbed and died. Lewis did time in jail, but no one single person was convicted of the stabbing.

Hew spews god-related quotes / bible versus all of the time, almost as a way to distract from having any real conversation with him or to distract anyone from the truth.

How come I've never heard about using deer antlers as a performance supplement before? Maybe I should start chewing on the antlers of deer I shoot instead of mounting them... haha.

WHO GIVES A FLYING DUCK?

He got away with murder, prepented and continued playing football. Pretty simple. So he ate some old oriental folk remedy that does nothing!

Reread line 1!
