When I heard about this my first thought was just how does someone manage to get the velvet off the growing antlers of a mature buck? Could well trained does in heat talk the bucks into giving it up? Talk about a hazardous occupation. And who first thought of using the velvet from buck antlers? What else did they try?..................................I have endless questions concerning this phenomenon.

There used to be an elk farm near here that exported antler fuzz to China. I want to say it was used as an aphrodesiac, but maybe they gave it to Yao Ming!

I'm curious about the results. The Johns Hopkins prof disputed benefits from taking orally, and yet this Key claims the stuff works and guys are wanting more. I heard you can buy it for(from) a couple bucks.:laugh:

Ray Lewis, Vijay Singh, and now Bama. Interesting. Just a matter of time before more names come out in other sports as well.

If I read the article correctly, the salesman sold the antler spray before the 2012 title game vs LSU. Not this years title.

one can only imagine the crap that is being peddled and purchased in parking lots of student-athletes apt blgs and to pro athletes as well. All from the trunk of some guys car.

you can safely assume its being done everywhere by more athletes we care to guess. It will go on until one can figure out a test to detect it, and then its on to the next substance --- snake oil has been sold since the beginning of time and always will be.

No question. Technology can have scary things associated with it. This could be considered one of those things. As long as someone is competitive and looking to get ahead, things like this will continue. No testing or punishment will stop every single person from trying to get a competitive edge at all costs.

And, yes, this is the only time one will mention Vijay Singh in the same sentence as Ray Lewis and a major college football program.

Big deal.

There would be a huge public outcry if they ever found out the % of high major college and professional athletes who use performance enhancing drugs.

People are very naive.
