those were the two examples I thought of when I read his quote earlier. You must be reading my mind.

That being said, it did seem disrespectful considering it was a playoff game.

^ that was Harbaugh!s call to get him out there. He says it in an episode of Sound FX. "I want to put you out there in the victory formation,..you can do one last dance..," or words to that effect.

Based on absolutely nothing, a dust argument. I guess Ben is doped up when he plays with a broken nose and badly sprained ankle.

Same thing with AP, Brett Favre, and every other player who has played hurt.

Ridiculous.

^ that is a ridiculous counter. All the evidence points to him doping. 37, an injury that normally takes 6 months at minimum to heal? I don't think so. AP was out for the year and rehabbed. And a broken nose and sprained ankle are entirely different things. They are far more benign injuries.

Still I have to say that it is more than likely that a lot of the NFLers dope up. They are bigger, faster and stronger than ever. This will be the next controversy for the league to deal with.

-He's 37. That is not evidence of doping, sorry. The guy is a workout fiend and a health nut.

-He had an injury that normally takes 6 months. Again, means nothing, AP's injury would normally take a full season to get back to normal, he was playing like a madman after one offseason. his recovery was miraculous as well. Based on your standard of evidence AP is guilty. Plus Ray is in the biggest arm brace I've ever seen.

-An upper ankle sprain takes weeks to heal. Ben didn't miss a start.

his age plus the speedy recovery is hard to buy. We don't know if he's taken something or not, but that is suspicious.

Look, I'm with you that he probably didn't dope and he's just playing through a bad injury as best he can, but comparing torn triceps to a broken nose or a sprained ankle is a little silly.

ESPN Sports Guy Bill Simmons thinks Ray-Ray took PEDs for his miracle recovery

When Ray Lewis suffered a complete tear of his triceps in mid-October, we thought he was finished for the season only he returned to action a little more than two months later. During the third month of his "recovery," he made 17 tackles in a double-overtime playoff game in Denver. In 13-degree weather. At age 37.

So when Lewis's name landed in this week's PED scandal, nobody tumbled over in shock....

I believe that Ray Lewis cheated. I believe that to be true based on circumstantial evidence, his age, his overcompetitiveness, the history of that specific injury, and the fact that his "recovery" made my shit detector start vibrating like a chainsaw.

I believe in my right to write the previous paragraph because athletes pushed us to this point


http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...k-ped-question

From a simple cost/benefit standpoint Lewis has every incentive to do anything to recover this season. Lewis is retiring - if Goodell figures out he was doping what is Goodell going to do - suspend him?

On a side note, a huge pet peeve of mine is when people use quotation marks incorrectly when trying to provide sarcastic emphasis or in place of the words so-called. It's really bad when a professional writer does it.

For instance. You wouldn't say Ray Lewis' miraculous "recovery", because it was a recovery god damn it, you aren't questioning it, you are questioning the miracle part.

Correct: Ray Lewis' so-called "miraculous" recovery.

Incorrect: Ray Lewis' miraculous so-called "recovery".

Thanks for listening
