Fucking florio at at again i really hate that scumbag
Most of the commenters are, surprisingly, pointing out that it's time to move on. Basically, even if he took deer antler spray, there's no way to test for it accurately. So for them to prove he cheated, he'd have to admit to it, or have someone testify that they SAW him take it.
But hey, keep trying to push this to get your clicks. Eventually, I'm sure someone will come out with a report about smelling deer antler spray on Ray lewis' breath, or some dumb shit just to keep furthering their duct tape and string tied plan to get ray lewis knocked down a peg.
so he wrote a story that conveniently cannot be proven or disproven unless admitted by the defendant and will linger as long as he sees fit. Well Ray says he didnt do it. I guess the story is over then seeing as the originator is basically saying its not going anywhere.Quote:
Thus, absent an admission from Lewis or other conclusive evidence of IGF-1 use, there’s no way this thing will ever go anywhere.
Well, is Florio wrong?
Hate it or not, this is where we are with pro athletes and PED's and he's right.
The absence of a failed drug test is not proof these days, thanks to masking agents, new science etc.
I am very troubled that we do not have a public denial from Ray on this. When I'm not ruining message boards, I interview and interrogate people for a living. His emphatic explanations that are being used as denials by some are not denials. Innocent people are emphatic AND deny. Unless I missed it, I have not seen a clip where he's actually denied the allegation.
Nobody hopes more than I do that I'm wrong but it sounds as though he did indeed take this crap. Good thing here is the dude who sold it to him has a reputation lower than whale shit.
This never should have been a story without these very basic things. You have an ex-stripper with no credibility and an obvious agenda, yet we are supposed to take him at his word and give him the benefit of the doubt? Please. This is such a non-story that it isn't even worth the words I've just typed. I'm moving on.
Not that I saw.
He deflected the question three times by my count, saying he wouldn't "give it the press" and that he wouldn't answer the question.
If anyone has a link to it, I'd like to see it in full since I missed the first 3 minutes or so.
Pretty disappointing but not Surprising.
Mike and Mike just won't let it go.
Astrong is a terrible example. He used for years and covered up and habitually lied.
I do think he addressed the issue during media day, and did so to my satisfaction of somebody not guilty. He said he didnt do it, seemed upset by the allegations and denied them more press to hock their product/agenda. I dont know how else youd want him to answer that question?
I'm glad Ray didn't give them the time of day. He knows how to handle this accusation. The media will have a field day with it and some will question Rays credibilty. Ray is playing his last game Sunday and he is only thinking about the game and his team being in the SB. It is good fodder for the haters of Ray and the Ravens. I'm watching the game Sunday with high exppectations from the Ravens. Media and haters will have a lot to talk about after the game.
For those who want answers about steriods, good luck, steroids have been around for a while / If he doesn't test positive, you must acquit.(or something like that). Armstrong is totally different, just like Clinton, he believed what he wanted to believe. If the NFL has testing issues, well thats their problem( along with helmet to helmet hitting, bad referees, and salary caps). I'll just watch the game, any other thing, I'm not interested in. GO RAVENS !
Ok, here's the interview ....
Again, not seeing a denial, only refusals to answer the question.
If Ray know's he didn't do it (hell even if he did) he know's it can't be proven, he know's it's a non story. Why does he even need to talk about it? Move on, next question, that would be my attitude, I don't have to deny that I did anything.
