I have read with interest The Sun's coverage of Ray Lewis, S.W.A.T.S. and the deer antler spray that company allegedly provided him ("S.W.A.T.S. co-founder sticks to story," Jan. 31). As far as I have been able to ascertain from these articles, the story line goes something like this:
Mr. Lewis denies using a spray which Mitch Ross (as well as two other sources) say did not contain IGF-1 and which experts say could not be used to absorb IGF-1 anyway.
Forgive me, but I am unable to find any place in this narrative wherein any dog has been bitten by any man. Can you please explain to me why the media continue with this line?
I realize that there is precious little Super Bowl-related content left on which to report between now and the game, and I realize that editors continue to demand submissions nonetheless. However, if you are hoping that continuing to flog this particular equine will inspire it to rise from the grave and win the Preakness for you, I feel compelled to point out that it shares, and will continue to share, certain characteristics with Generalissimo Francisco Franco: Both are still dead.
