Big story in the baseball world
not so much for cheating because it was not cheating pre-2004
but more that everyone thought he was clean or at least he wasn't connected before in anyway.
He's still cleaner than Michael Phelps
Im not surprised.
is anyone shocked by baseball players testing positive anymore?
they all mis-remember I guess
I think steroids in Football is a far bigger issue than in baseball. Not for use, but for the impact it has on the game.
I remember seeing a sign in the stands one night saying:
"Hank did it on beer and bubble gum - What about you?" or something like that.
Props to AROD for admitting it right away and not denying it and looking like a retard like Bonds & Clemens.
He's already done his big 'denial' song and dance. He said he didn't juice and he did. I think he looks just as bad as Bonds.. We should lump them together.... Then you get people like Clemens who come off looking retarded, like you said. Clemens was a whole other can of worms, he weaved such a web of lies...
Are people still shocked when it comes out that a pro athlete has taken a banned substance
yea really though
now when I hear another name I just find it sad
He also said he had no idea what was in the supplements he was taking, which I think is total bullshit. His career and the huge contracts he has signed depend him being healthy. Why the hell would he put anything into his body if he didn't know exactly what it was and what it could do to him?
He says that at the time of the denial he made to Katie Couric....he had gone thought the testing process for steroids....but didn't know for sure if the test would be positive
I think thats bullshit...I think he knew damn well the test would be positive. Personally. I give him minor props points for admitting what he did, and major douche points for still lying about certain aspects of it.
I give him more respect than Bonds or Clemens, who, when faced with hard evidence, continue to lie and look like fucking fools.
Rodriguez and Pettitte's approach for the win
No, he didn't man up, he lied about it once already, and then he just called himself naive and didn't know what he was taking, yeah fucking right.
He should have just admitted that the steriods made him better than what he could be on his own, but you're never going to hear him do that, because he didn't actually man up, he's still trying to play the good guy, or the innocent guy.
How are they going to hold this against him when steroids weren't illegal when he used them?
Legally, there isn't much, but the people who signed him to huge contracts feel cheated.
