    No one cares about juicing in football. Do any of you care that Cushing is a juicer? I don't. Now, I hope they get punished and called out on it but that's only cause I hate Alabama.

    There was an article in the Baltimore Sun yesterday interviewing a John Hopkins prof who said this spray is basically magic crap. You have to inject it, the volume would have to be much greater, and the process from which the spray supposedly extracts the substance renders it useless.

    Is it possible Ray Lewis asked for everything he could possibly get so that he can try to get back on the field for his last season and be damned if some of it is against the rules? I think that's probable. Whether he pushed for it, or the dealer pushed it to him, he probably took it all as the voicemail was evidence of him asking for instructions on how to use it. It's just funny because it's all crap....maybe it helped him psychologically. I mean, he is a guy that thinks God destined him to the Superbowl.

    I think people care, but in baseball they just let it happen for so long. In the NFL they test for it and when people flunk it's because of random ass reasons like spraying moose piss in their mouth.

    In baseball they're injecting each other in the butt in bathrooms so they can go from making 15/mil guaranteed a year to 25/mil.

    In football you have guys eating rat testicles so they won't get cut, not knowing about some obscure flavoring ingredient that's against the rules.

    the demands of the highest levels of competition almost require it. Coaches want 300lb linemen to be able to run as fast as WRs. The combination of freak athletes we see today take great dedication and innate talent, no doubt, but the things that we see on Sunday are definitely not natural. You could legitimately get paralyzed on any play with a brick wall running towards you. And then you repeat that every 7 days, all while fighting to keep your spot on the depth chart in practice battles? It's hard to imagine that they aren't all taking something.

    This is not to belittle their accomplishments of making it to the NFL- there are a lot of guys who took steroids in college and didn't make it to the NFL. Being able to make it to the league takes a special combination of talent, motivation and work ethic, but if you're getting injured too frequently then you won't be in the lineup for long. Steroids don't make you a better player- they allow you to recover faster so that you can work to be a better player.

    Nothing more than a placebo affect.

    So a guy selling bogus bull**** gets some players to buy in then leaks the story to the press. Great freakin marketing on their part. They're just trying to take credit for others' success and drive business to their joke of a website---which has been pointed out.

    Snake oil

    WOW ..... The guy a John Hopkins stated that a spray could not administer this so called PED. This is a very respectable institution. I would say that he knows what he is talking about; therefore even if this accusation is true, evidently it doesn't work. So what is the fuss about? There are so many claims out there of miracle drugs and 99% of it is simply bogas, and mr. Key is a con selling a bogas snake oil treatment and getting free publicity for the press. I think before CBS and SI starts publishing anything they need to do some major fact checking instead of taking some man's word about a product that an expert from John Hopkins stated doesn't work. Well that is par for the course it seems like over the past 4-5 years the lame stream media really doesn't spend a whole lot of time fact checking cause they must be lazy or something, they just report heresay as fact. How do we know that anything on the supposed video was even against the rules? How do we know that Mr. Key was being honest and not just jerking the players by giving them simple water or colored water taking their money and coning them. We don't! It is amazing how it is so easy for people to hear something and accept it as facts and never use their gourd for anything other a neck ornament. THINK THINK AND THEN THINK SOME MORE before making a hasty judgment. Let's face it the SEC is hated and any bad publicity they get is going to be exploited to it's fullest extent, and Snake Oil salesmen have been around for century's so what is all the fuss about.
