ESPN - The company that says it provided deer-antler spray, a product that contains a banned substance, to Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis also sold its goods to members of the 2012 national championship Alabama football team, according to a co-owner of the company. And Christopher Key, the SWATS co-owner, told ESPN’s Joe Schad on Wednesday he personally witnessed about five Alabama players spray what he sold them into their mouths. ”I showed them how to use it,” Key said.
Key said about 20 players purchased the spray at a hotel room in New Orleans leading into the BCS national championship game against LSU. And he said he sold about 20 more bottles to players at the apartment of an Alabama player 10 days before the game. Sports Illustrated first reported the connection between SWATS, an Alabama-based company, and several SEC programs. The Sports Illustrated story reported that Key filmed a sales pitch to a number of Alabama players two days before the 2012 title game in New Orleans. The article mentioned former Crimson Tide defensive lineman Quinton Dial and current players Adrian Hubbard and Alex Watkins as being part of the sales pitch.
Well there you have it. Now we know why those games were so drastically different. LSU winning a low scoring slobberknocker of a game in overtime 9-6. Then all of a sudden a few months later Bama rips off big plays all over the field and pins LSU behind the 50 the entire game and wins by 21 behind 384 yards of total offense and a stifling defense. Night and day. How’d that happen? 3 words. Deer antler spray. The most magic substance on Earth. Like a sorcerer’s potion. Hey if it can reattach a tricep to a bone in 3 months, pretty sure it can get some college kids extra souped up for one game. Should have known these Bama teams were too good to be true. That scumbag Saban making everyone think he’s God’s gift to coaching when it’s really Deer Antler Velvet with Insulin-Like Growth-Factor 1 doing all the work.
