NEW ORLEANS (WJZ) — Super Bowl XLVII is this Sunday, and the fans and players alike can’t wait to get down to business.

Sports Director Mark Viviano has more on the team’s preparations.

Before they hit the practice field today, Ray Lewis and his teammates again met head on with continued questions about that controversial report that Lewis used illegal performance enhancing substances.

Lewis confronted the questions for a second straight day, denying that he ingested a banned substance as alleged by a known dealer of steroid alternatives detailed in a report by Sports Illustrated.

“I never ever took what he said. The guy has no credibility. He’s been sued four or five times over the same B-S. Just to entertain it, I can’t, I won’t and I just truly believe he doesn’t have the privilege for me to speak about it ever again,” Lewis said.

Anxious to turn their focus over to football, teammates weighed in on the Lewis controversy.

“He’s a brother to me. I don’t know much about the situation. I haven’t really heard that much, just what people have told me. And so it’s not going to be a distraction at all. I think it’s just another headline,” said Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger.

“Ray’s going strong. He don’t care. We’re going to come together. This is going to bring us closer together. It really is. It’s going to bring us closer together and we’ll go play,” said Ravens safety Bernard Pollard.

“You’re not angry, you can use a different word. You can use the word agitated because I’m here to win a Super Bowl. I’m not here to entertain somebody that does not affect that one way or another. And so the word agitated would probably be better. Angry? I could never let anything from the outside affect me to be angry,” Lewis said.

In further discussing the subject, Ray Lewis referred to the fraternity of the NFL as a secret society, stating his regret that he allowed his accuser into that inner circle.
