07:25 AM ET 02.02 | Mitch Ross, owner of S.W.A.T.S. (Sports With Alternatives to Steroids), refused to provide text messages or shipping labels that would confirm the allegations that he provided a deer antler velvet spray to retiring Ravens inside linebacker Ray Lewis that contains an NFL banned substance. During an hour-long interview outside the Super Bowl media center on Friday, Ross dodged questions requesting specific contact with Lewis as reported by Sports Illustrated earlier this week. "I never saw Ray put it in his mouth," Ross said. "I want to apologize to any athletes that this story hurt. It was my intention to shine a light on the technologies that are light years ahead of what people can understand. I had no control of when the story runs. I'm trying to make right the wrong with Ray Lewis. "Ray Lewis is a great man. Hue Jackson is a hero for starting to work with me in 2008. I am here to tell you natural IGF-1 rebuilds brain tissue. I did not walk in the Ravens' door with deer spray. I walked in with chips." Lewis has vehemently denied the report he used the spray, which includes the substance IGF-1, which is banned by the NFL.

Good point, like I said the other day, Ray had a "possible" slander suit ready to be filed against S.W.A.T.S!!!!

Good point and a more important question might be, why in the hell are NFL and college players buying the crap, knowing that it has "banned substances" in them"???

I'm gonna side with Ray on this...

The dude is just trying to sell his product:

"Just cause NFL Players can't use my revolutionary product... Does mean you can't. Order in the next 10 Mins and we'll double your order".

But if Ross has the proper documentation, I'm sure Ray Ray does not want all of this coming out in court, unless he has a few more "friends" to throw under the bus.

I agree and if Ross does have the proper documentation, then it could mean trouble for Lewis and the college football players at Bama and LSU!!!
