According to a report from SI.com, three Bama players met with the co-founder of S.W.A.T.S. (Sports With Alternatives to Steroids) two nights before the 2012 BCS National Championship game in which Bama waxed LSU 21-0.
Quinton Dial, Alex Watkins and Adrian Hubbard are three named in the report who allegedly met with Christopher Key of S.W.A.T.S.
S.W.A.T.S. makes supplements in different forms that are not supposed to include banned substances. However, one of the company’s supplements, The Ultimate Spray, contained a growth hormone found in deer antler velvet that is illegal.
The substance in question is the deer antler spray. Ray Lewis reportedly used it this year when returning from his triceps injury, and the same report implicated Alabama players, too. Deer antler spray contains IGF-1, which is banned by the NCAA.
Key demonstrated four products with the players including hologram chips, deer antler spray, negatively charged water and oscillating light-ray beam. He filmed the meeting and provided a video to the SI reporters.
The video allegedly shows Key demonstrating the positives of the chips with Dial, explaining how the product would benefit the players by preventing a large amount of cell phone frequencies inside the Super Dome from affecting their performance.
“They’re going to affect you guys very negatively,” Key said rapidly and with a twang. “We figured out a way to manipulate that so that you aren’t affected . . . [to] give you strength, give you balance, give you flexibility and help with pain.”
Key also described the other products to the players during the meeting.
Alabama spokesperson provided the following statement when asked for a response:
“We’ve sent them two cease and desist letters, and we are constantly educating our guys on performance-enhancing substances,” the university spokesperson told Epstien and Dohrmann.
S.W.A.T.S. is nothing new. Yahoo! published a 2011 report detailing the use of “chips” by Alabama and Auburn players.
Alabama used the “triple-chip” against Georgia in 2008 before thumping the Bulldogs 41-30…and nothing happened. The NCAA didn’t do anything.
The fact is that unless players test positively for a banned substance, nothing will happen, ever.
Basically we have Alabama players tied to a recycled report with a shady two-man company that is run out of the back of a Birmingham gym. Nothing will come of this.
Update: Alabama says controversial supplement company has ‘twice ignored’ its cease-and-desist letters. You can read about it here.

Yep. Deer piss is going to take us down. Who would have thought it? Oh well, back to beating UGA the regular way.
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
lulz I know these kids are desperate to get the slightest advantage to further their careers, but some of this shit is insane.
Stickers to block cell phone radiation?
Deer Antler spray taken subcutaneously to provide steroid effects?
What is next eating ground up tiger penises?
hologram chips? is this real life?
have to be the biggest idiot to think anything would help in a 2 day time period. Could have had an IV of test running the night before and wouldnt matter

I once used The Ultimate Spray and proceeded to find a fresh jawbone of a donkey, grabbed it and struck down a thousand men. True story.
Wait till they find out that bear shit makes you incredibly fast
I guess we did cheat
First three players met with this guy. Meeting is not illegal. Secondly try proving they even took the spray out the door. Third try to prove they ever took it if they did receive it. Finally try proving what was actually in the spray if they did take it. I'll give you a clue....it can't be proven. And were talking about three players. All of our players are huge. Unless you have proof all our guys are on peds stfu. This same article popped up two years ago with auburn players. Nothing happened then, nothing will happen now.
This guy has a history of putting random junk in his products claiming it to be one thing when its something else. And he sells chips and light beams to block bad juju vibes. I don't care if he does have tapes. Nothing from this man is credible and if you believe him you must be one of those people that watches Ancient Aliens on the history channel and believes every word of it. Basically means your an idiot. You'd have to be an idiot to think hgh or IGF-1 can survive outside a refrigerator.
Its also laughable that anyone would think you'd have to take this deer antler crap in order to get IGF-1. You can order it off the internet in peptide form from companies in the US and it can be at your front door in two days. Or you can be a jackass and risk killing yourself by just using regular insulin.

So far he has named these sec teams:
Thank God auburn and ole miss are on the list. No way anyone buys this.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
The thing that concerns me the most about all this is the fact the players actually believed the cell phones in the stadium would negatively effect their bodies so they needed supplements to keep that from happening ... Good god that is just dumb

Everyone will be effed except Auburn
Not LSU, so I doubt you would even play UGA again.
So lsu used the chips to beat bama the first time, but apparently stopped using them in the championship game despite the amazing success. At which point Bama used them and won easily.
Auburn used them to win the 2010 championship and started getting bad batches thereafter.
UGA and Ole Miss are just helpless.
Lol no this Mitch Ross and swats guy is a joke they are ting to get at ray Lewis and these teams to screw them over for not usin their stuff
Lolz - trust me, I don't watch bama football with hopes of getting a glimpse at the next great intellectual giant...
You ever seen one of those red lobster scholar athletes for an SEC game? The kid will have a 2.7 in general studies LMFAO. I can't imagine it really being that hard to fool a football player...
So, it was purchased/used before the blackout UGA game and before the LSU/Bama NCG by Bama players.
LSU players used it before they beat Bama in the regular season.
AU used it during their NC season.
...... I believe him, yo.
But your players are using it too. Uh oh!
Is it similar to drinking Rams piss??.. b/c once you can drink that.. then you can damn near drink anything I kid.. I kid... this is going to be interesting
