(ESPN)   In a shocking twist, sales of deer antler velvet have increased to rates not seen since January 2011. It's amazing what a bit of positive advertisement in a timely situation will do for your company   (espn.go.com) divider line 13

I caught one of my players using it and I coach freaking high school hockey.  I wasn't sure if I should laugh, cry, or have an assistant coach hold the player down while I beat the stupid out of him.

So which SI writer invested in this guy's company right before running that story about Lewis?

Fark with the deer, you get the horns.

Anty up for antler spray and play like an alleged felon.

Does the stuff even work?

I could've sworn I read something where the IGF-1 or whatever it is can't even be properly processed by the human body

The IGF signaling pathway has a pathogenic role in cancer. Studies have shown that increased levels of IGF lead to increased growth of existing cancer cells.

It gives you Super Cancer!

So, if it does not work, why is it banned by major sports?

Also, is this a situation where someone is taking "flaxseed oil" or whatever it was that Barry Bonds squirted under his tongue.

No. You can't absorb a macromolecule like IGF-1 sublingually and it'd be digested in the stomach. You gotta inject that shiat.

Morons are trying to cheat and failing.

The whole situation is stupid now.
Vijay Singh says he uses the stuff, but didn't know it was bad (it's not).
Alabama Football uses the stuff, but sent a bunch of cease and desist notices.
Roy Williams says he uses it and it's great, but no one cares (I guess people don't blink with Bengals players admit to using banned substances)

Most medical journals say it's just a placebo anyway so what's the point in banning it.

Even National Geographic is chiming in.
