SHOTLIST:SOURCE - RESTRICTION/COURTESY: AP Television - AP Clients OnlyLocation - Date: NEW ORLEANS - Jan. 301. SOUNDBITE: Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens, linebacker"I think honestly. And I'm going to say it very clearly again. I think it's probably one of the most embarrassing things that we can do on this type of stages. I think it takes totally away from...you give somebody the ability to come into our world. You know our world is a very secret society. And we try to protect our world as much as we can. But, when you let, when you let cowards come in and do things like that. You know, to try to disturb something. I've said it before. I've said a million times. The reason why I'm smiling is because it's so funny of a story because I've never ever took what he said as whatever I was supposed to do. And it's just sad, once again, that someone can have this much attention on a stage this big where the dreams are really real. They're really real and I don't need it. My teammates don't need it. The 49ers don't need it. Nobody needs it, because it just really shows you how people really plan things and try to attack people from the outside. And it's just foolish. It's very foolish and the guy has no credibility. He's been sued four or five times over this same BS. And just, just to entertain it. I can't. I won't. And I just truly believe he doesn't have the privledge to, for me to speak about it ever again."2. SOUNDBITE: John Harbaugh, Baltimore Ravens, coach"Ray is honest, very straight forward. He's told us in the past. He's told us now that he's never taken any of that stuff, ever. And I believe Ray. I trust Ray completely. We have a relationship. I know this man, you know. And I know what he's all about. So, you know, it's just too bad it has to be something that gets so much play."STORYLINE:Ravens coach John Harbaugh says star linebacker Ray Lewis assured him "there's nothing to" a magazine report linking him to a company that makes deer-antler spray containing a banned performance enhancer. Harbaugh said Wednesday morning he spoke with Lewis. The coach said Lewis "knows there is nothing to it. He understands it's something he's never been involved in." On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated reported that Lewis sought help from a company that makes the unorthodox product to speed his recovery from a torn right triceps. Lewis missed 10 games with the injury. "He laughed about it," Harbaugh said, referring to Lewis. "He told me there's nothing to it. He's told us in the past and now that he has never taken any of it." Baltimore plays the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl on Sunday in the final game of Lewis' career.
