  • Shouldn't Ray Lewis Be Suspended?

    So if Ray Lewis tested positive for a banned substance, shouldn't he be suspended for the Super Bowl?

    Hmmmmmmm, let's see how the league tries to cover this one up.

      I don't think I've heard any reports of him testing positive for anything... Just that it was reported that he was prescribed something against the leagues substance policies.

        Ray Lewis was given a product to help heal his torn triceps that contains a banned substance, according to a Sports Illustrated report that will appear on newsstands Monday. The Baltimore Ravens linebacker has not tested positive and denies using it, a team official told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

        More From ESPN.com

        Ray Lewis will go down as one of the best linebackers ever, but there are now questions about whether or not he cheated, writes Jamison Hensley. Blog

        Mitch Ross, a co-owner of Sports with Alternatives to Steroids (SWATS), told Sports Illustrated that he spoke to Lewis shortly after the linebacker tore his triceps Oct. 14 and he requested products that could help speed up his recovery. Deer-antler spray was among the prescribed treatments. Deer-antler spray contains a substance, IGF-1, on the NFL's banned list.

        SWATS is the subject of an in-depth profile in Sports Illustrated's next issue. A version of the story also was posted on SI.com.

        Lewis dismissed the report when asked about it at Super Bowl media day Tuesday in New Orleans.

        "Two years ago, it was the same report. I wouldn't give that report or him any of my press. He's not worthy of that. Next question," Lewis said.

        Lewis was referring to a Jan. 19, 2011, story by Yahoo! Sports on SWATS in which Hue Jackson, then the Raiders' coach, was told by the NFL to cut ties with the company. Ross told ThePostGame.com in 2011 that he gave Jackson free products that the coach gave to players, including Lewis.

          It's a banned substance, it still counts.

            So, let me see if I get this straight:

            Ray Lewis gets no fine for a banned substance, but Frank Gore gets fined for wearing his socks too low and he is fined more than Tom Brady with an intentional kick slide into Ed Reed?

            So, Ginger Hammer thinks: Drugs < Kicking < Low socks

            I think that makes total sense

              Well, your reasoning is pretty sound.

                If he tested positive for a banned substance, they could not suspend him. He literally could be caught injecting a steroid right now - and he would not be suspended. The suspension process now involves appeals and court involvement. The justice system is now involved in determining player suspensions.

                  I'm getting tired of the NFL protecting Ray Lewis. He is the epitome of the scum of the earth IMHO. Why would you want to protect him with the things he has done? Not saying there is enough time is a crock. I am with you.

                    According to the Baltimore Sun, the deer-antler spray Ray Lewis allegedly obtained from sports science company S.W.A.T.S. is unlikely to have contained a banned substance.

                    Lewis is accused of using a spray that contains banned substance IGF-1, but a doctor who studies growth hormone deficiency for Johns Hopkins University says that's not possible. "It’s just simply not possible for (IGF-1) to come from a spray," Dr. Roberto Salvatori said. "If (it) were, a lot of people would be happy that they don’t need to get shots anymore." The story will likely continue to be propped up as a distraction ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl, but it's a non-issue for the soon-to-be retired Lewis.

                      That banned substance doesn't show on urine tests, only blood tests, which the NFL does not use.

                        they were explaining it on NFL radio. HE literally could go on the podium this week and announce he did it and there is nothing they could do. A story is not evidence, it is a starting point for an investigation. Even if they drug tested him this week it couldn't happen.

                        If its true...brutal way to end a career Ray...nice work. That is (may be) your legacy. Now, more than ever I am cheering for the 49ers, even though I never want to see Moss with a ring either...

                          Ray Lewis will leave behind an extensive body of positive work, on and off the field......problem is, he will always be remembered for the wrong reason (until the day everyone gets all the facts). And yes, this latest matter (if true)would add to the controversy.

                            so you havent been proven of being guilty by ANY evidence whatsoever should you be suspended by your job or go to jail?

                            you people are absolutely clueless on how this all works, quit being ridiculous.

                            and aside from the murder incident, which he was also never proven guilty of, why is he such a scum bag?

                              He was proven guilty of it. He admitted his guilt in a plea deal and testified against the other two. He plead guilty to obstruction of justice when he refused to turn over evidence and fled the scene. The person who was murdered - his blood was all over Ray Lewis' limo. Ray Lewis informed his driver to shut his mouth and to flee the scene. That night he was wearing a white suit that HE REFUSED to hand over to the authorities because he "couldn't find it".
