Ray Lewis Denial of Doping

The word "never" is not a legitimate substitute for "did not"; noting how much Ray Lewis sounds like Lance Armstrong:

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) – Sports Illustrated released a story today linking Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis to a banned substance they claim he’s used since October to recover from a triceps injury.
S.I. reports Lewis used deer-antler velvet extract spray which increases their level of IGF-1, which acts the way that a steroid would, cutting fat and promoting muscle growth.
Co-author David Epstein told Starkey and Miller on 93-7 The Fan he confronted Lewis about it, but after listening at first, he ended the conversation and walked away.
Lewis saying today, “I wouldn’t mention his antics in my speeches or in my moment. Every test I’ve ever took in the NFL, there’s never been a question. I never even thought about taking anything. So to even entertain stupidity like that, tell him to get his story from someone else.
Note that he tells us everything but a denial.  
Note he "wouldn't" mention...future conditional tense. 
The tests results?  His response:  "there's never been a question" rather than "negative."
"So" is to explain why something is said or done.

How much easier would it have been to say "I didn't use"?  Lying causes internal stress and he avoids it completely. 

Lewis also said the story is 2 years old, however Epstein responded, “The idea that the story’s 2-years old, you know I reported on Lance Armstrong. It’s 2 years old, could be because you were doing it 2 years ago and still are.”
Epstein also reporting the substance was first brought to the Ravens attention by quarterbacks coach Hue Jackson (2008-09), who got it from company owner and former male stripper, Mitch Ross outside a NFL combine.

This makes me sad. For someone who claims to be a Christian, he has done his share of lying in the media, both about this and about that shooting he was involved in a few years ago. It makes me wonder if he "embraced" religion as a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card.

I wanted to believe he was telling the truth about these things, but after reading this and other articles I now believe he is not telling the truth.

That double murder was a stabbing, brosnanfan, which is why Lewis needed to ask an "associate" to stuff his blood-soaked white suit in a laundry bag and then toss it in a fast food restaurant dumpster. The suit was never found.

I found the transcript of his initial police interview on the "Sports Illustrated" website. A detective asked Ray if he would return and help ID the suspects from a list, and he told them he'd be glad to do that as soon as he returned from the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. They reminded him that two people were killed, and that didn't change his view of the case as a low priority.

Now that I'm a Statement Analysis fan, I get angry when reporters (like the ESPN crew now) mistakenly say someone denied doing something. Ray Lewis said a LOT of things, but he has yet to deny taking PEDs. Even after watching the entire "Lance Armstrong" deception play out, Lewis can't figure out how to lie plausibly. He has half of the media on his side, but so far Sports Illustrated and CBS have written articles saying he TOOK HGH (no "maybe" about it). There is a recorded phone call proving it, according to those reports. The provider of the drugs waited until now because he's angry that Lewis refused to promote his products as previously agreed.

If possible, is there any way you could look into any statements made by Mindy Mcready in the death of her fiance David Wilson? I am wondering about his death....friends are saying he would not commit suicide and he was due to collect an inheritance in a matter of weeks. I already read one statement she made saying they do fight sometimes like all "normal" couples and that jumped out at me. She has a pretty rocky history. Thanks, I love your blog! Read it every day.
