      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

PFT Rumor: Ray used banned substance?

293 posts in this topic

Profootballtalk.com is reporting that Ray may have used a banned substance while recovering from torn triceps...

This is terrible news if true.

HAHAHA... how can you not laugh at all media headlines. PFT (and other websites) are full of stories making the Ravens to be the worst people in the world.

Interesting. Not a performance enhancing substance, just something to speed up recovery from the effects of surgery.

Yawn....

(of course, these are all ALLEGATIONS, with little to no value, legally speaking)

Rumor: Ray may have NOT used banned substance to recover from torn triceps.

Lol. What I'm saying is I can make anything a rumor. Hell, I heard a rumor Biscotti's selling the team to Michael Phelps. Doesn't mean it's true. Sometimes I wonder where these sports writers get their info. Do I think Ray used it? It's possible, but what could he have used? HGH? Maybe, that can speed up recovery.

No offense to the OP. I know you're just posting what you read elsewhere.

I am just posting what I read somewhere, I bet it will be discussed at media day. I know PFT is a little better (sometimes) than other places, so I thought I'd just pass it along.

Mike Florio is always writing something negative about the Ravens specifically Ray. I'll wait until this actually becomes real news.

I used to think PFT was, but really it is really just a gossip website.

Drudging up old news and allegations from 2 years ago.

Wonder if they can be sued for libel?

Anyone here think Adderall should be taked off the BSL? Technically, it doesn't boost performance, only speeds up recovery. Trying to play Devil's advocate.

Ray, Hue Jackson, and "more than a dozen NFL players" pulled endorsements from S.W.A.T.S. in 2011, at the request of the NFL, even though there's no actual evidence the product even contains IGF-1.

How does anyone know that this supposed videotape wasn't made prior to the ban?
Old news, and a non-issue.

he has been linked to this company before years ago and listed as a sponsored guy for it who knows how many players are using this stuff. Roy Williams even says he uses it. personally i dont care he tore his triceps and is back in 55 days he still isnt anywhere near 100% its not like its some type of advantage for the ravens if he did use it and its still unclear if it even does contain a banned supstance from what i read.

Florio is a Ravens hater, and is trying to dig up any small piece that he can to cause distraction. It's the Super Bowl and the Media right now has clearly chosen to make us the villians...again. When will they EVER learn?

Lmao! Another anti-Ray article with no source or credibility. Until this comes from a reputable source, I couldn't care less. It didn't come up in the drug tests! It's a baseless accusation.

The comments are ridiculous.
