    They do not say that Ray admitted to using the deer antler spray or whatever. Until they have proof that a) he used it, and b) it helped, I don't really know how this story is going to have legs other than to annoy the Ravens during media week. And, given that his alleged use was months ago and in such small quantities, I really don't see how the NFL or anybody is going to prove that he used a banned substance. So the haters are going to continue to hate and call Ray "murderer", "cheater," etc. The rest of us will have to decide what to make of this.

    In addition, it seems that SI held up the timing of this article as they had appeared to interview Ray in December about this. So this isn't a case of SWATs dropping this today.

    In any event, it doesn't look like this will prevent Ray from playing on Sunday -- and it doesn't look like there is any proof that Ray took a banned substance or gained an edge because of it. (There are inferences and conjecture, but no proof.) In any event, if three sprays under the tongue of deer antler extract were enough to salvage careers and cut recovery time by 80%, would we not have already heard of it by now?

    Re: Media Day - Observations

    Just got back from the Dome, I was on interveiewed on BAL-TV hope you saw me.........small crowd, great Ravens support, also Saints fan wearing Ravens attire.
    Ray Lewis was incredible. Such an honor to follow this player. I miss him already.
    I listened to him almost the whole time (they gave us radios to with channel tuned to the different player.

    Some other tidbits:

    Kaep says he relies on Moss who is always talking to him about coverages, says Moss is a team player. LOL
    Moss says he is the greatest WR of all time (ummmm Jerry Rice anyone, even the 49er fans were scratching their heads)
    Flacco says we want to move the chains and wear them out. (twice)
    Flacco wondered who the crowd will be behind.
    Kaepernick says "hopefully we win" (twice)
    Kaep says he needs to remember the plays.

    The Dome looks like M&T Bank, its mostly dressed in purple. Even the vendors are dressed in purple. The feel, even from Saints fans, was pro-Ravens. 49er fans were booed when they were interviewed.

    Kaep is going to try to go to Moss you can bank on that.....Moss is his boy.

    It was great to get to listen to a lot of the players. Oher was great, Flacco was awesome and of course Ray.

    Randy Moss on the other hand... what a clown. OK he thinks he's the greatest to ever play, he's not happy with his role, he wants to play forever and nothing positive came out of his mouth about the team. He really needs Chad Steele

    It was cool seeing Webb walk around in his Jersey with some of the secondary players. Miss that guy.

    Pretty much is......8/10 Saints fans are for the Ravens, although most of them would take anything after Atlanta.
    But I have been saying this for awhile, New Orleans is much closer to Baltimore culturally than it is to San Francisco.
    Now the last time I was in Baltimore for for the Super Bowl parade.....LOL.
