    Linkage: IGF-1 is a banned substance. There is no proof that SWATs spray contains that substance other than Ross' word. The evidence shows that the substance cannot be maintained without deep freezing and that Ross doesn’t even manufacture the spray himself.

    So, at worst, Ray took a sublingual spray for which there is no credible evidence that it contains a banned substance other than the word of a self-promoting former stripper with credibility issues.

    Why is this a story again?

    Thanks again, SI and PFT for pushing a half-assed story without running it to ground. Thanks also for dragging a legend through the mud without having credible evidence. And thanks for ruining Super Bowl week.

    I look for this non-story to further galvanize the Ravens, much as 2001's Ray Ray witch hunt did. Not losing one iota of sleep over it, in fact I'm kinda happy that this will bring our guys that much closer together before the BIG GAME.

    UNLEASH THE BEASTS!!!!

    Certainly appears that way, doesn't it.

    Rappaport, Breer and Darlington are all good follows. A lot of good info and generally pretty solid opinions.

    And no surprise, ESPN is under-reporting the fuck out of this.

    I'm stuck in AZ for work and they don't have NFLN in my hotel.

    What it boils down to...nothing is going to come from this, really...

    1. No chance anything happens before Sunday. According to Rapaport, NFL won't even acknowledge the story. Certainly, to prove guilt, NFL will need to investigate the SHIT out of this, interviews, fact checking, etc. Couldn't be done before Sunday.
    2. Since Ray is retiring, what would the NFL do? Post career fine? Maybe. Vacate things from this year? Unless you can prove Ravens were complicit, you can't take anything away from us. And it sounds like Ravens certainly had nothing to do with this
    3. It sounds more and more like in order to fail a test for this, they need to know BEFORE or WHEN you take it, so they can quickly capture.
    4. There's some debate over whether this even SHOULD be illegal. And in many cases, seems like "snake oil", a product which is supposed to be a miracle cure but in reality, does nothing

    Other fans will make a deal out of this, and it will amount to a hill of beans.

    Perfectly timed to cause a distraction and potentially hurt the team.

    Harbaugh and the gang are smarter than that. This is just a gnat on the back of a lion. The lion swats at it with it's tail...if the gnat goes away, fine. If it doesn't, no matter, it's just a gnat. The lion's eyes are on the wildebeast in front of it.
