As we all know, David Vobora was suspended 4 games last season for using a banned supplement. Vobora claims he was told the supplement in question was OK for use. However, when he had the supplement in question sent to the lab it tested positive for methyltestosterone, which is a steroid.
Here’s where the story breaks down a little to he said/they said. Vobora said he used “SWATS: The Ultimate Spray”, which SWATS website calls the most advanced and most effective in the world. It contains deer antler velvet and IGF-1, which increases muscle mass.
Vobora did not buy the spray from the website, instead was given the spray from an unnamed endorser of the product. The product’s owners say that the spray does not contain steroids and they say that Vobora took other supplements that must have been the problem. But, that makes very little sense since Vobora got his “Ultimate Spray” tested and it came up positive.
The moral of the story here for the kids is: do not take anything from a random “endorser” and treat what he or she says as gospel. It seems like Vobora got deceived either accidentally or maliciously by whomever gave him the substance. Buy the supplement from the website, keep the receipt and then if everything goes pear-shaped, you will have a leg to stand on. Do not trust what some mysterious endorser gives you.
