Deer antler spray sellers’ offices raided

The term “deer antler spray” became the talk of the NFL for a day or two in the week before the Super Bowl, then disappeared from our collective consciousness. Now law-enforcement authorities may be trying to make the makers of deer antler spray go away.

Alabama news site AL.com is reporting that investigators with the Alabama Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Office and Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies raided S.W.A.T.S. Fitness and Performance, the company that sells deer antler spray. A temporary restraining order has also been issued, allowing court-appointed receivers to seize the company’s assets.

The Alabama attorney general’s office alleges that S.W.A.T.S. has committed more than 200 violations of Alabama’s deceptive trade practices act.

S.W.A.T.S owner Mitch Ross, who relished in the publicity during Super Bowl week when it was reported that he had provided Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis with deer antler spray, was seen outside as lawmen seized his business.

    They should have asked Ray if he knew a good place to get rid of their evidence.

    Can someone explain how deer antler spray helps athletic performance? I’m not being facetious I just don’t get the anabolic effect it could create?

    Let’s not lose sight of who the real victims are here: those poor, innocent, antler-less deer.

    You get a job with ESPN and elected to the HOF… Welcome to America…

    Just sayin’

    According to Ravens fans, you were a wacky conspiracy theorist if you thought this looked bad for Ray Lewis last year. On the other hand, Ray’s Super Bowl on-purpose blackout theory is ENTIRELY possible and you’re completely justified to believe in it!

    I use and love deer antler spray…….it’s a completely natural supp that the Feds hate because it just so happens to work unlike the garbage they sell on bodybuilding.com.

    My shipment better not be delayed because of this.

    Trust me broseph I know all about Merica. I went to the grocery store today and two women walked directly in front of me and cut me in line then when I went outside to eat the food I got from the salad bar the people at the table on either side of me were yelling on their cell phones and I had to go eat outside.
    That doesn’t make any of it right or cool. Create your own reality. Don’t just give in because you live in Murica.

    I bet you don’t even know half of the details of that murder case.

    Idiots speaking on issues they have no knowledge of… Welcome to America.

    I wonder how many of these guys got confused and sprayed on buck scent instead of deer antler spray?

    The active ingredient is IGF-1, which is the chemical that causes deer’s antlers to grow so quickly. The idea is that the chemical will stimulate the growth of muscle and bone density, along the same lines as HGH. This is scientifically unproven.

    Deer antler spray is a joke, just as were the several other fraudulent products these guys were selling, like those dumb hologram bracelets and some device called a ‘concussion cap’ that is supposed to (and doesn’t) protect against concussions.

    These were just a pair of fraudsters who are getting what they deserved.

    The term “dumb athlete” comes to mind…
