However, using lack of evidence of innocence to support guilt is akin to mentioning that there is no way to know for sure that jonhnny bench didn't deal cocaine and then using that as evidence that he did deal cocaine. Sure there's no evidence to support that J. Bench didn't deal cocaine, and then using that as evidence that he did is erroneous. All signs point to Griffey did not take steroids. Taking steroids is a seriousl issue and having a standard where we assume people took them is more than dangerous. In other words, look for evidence of abuse, if its not there, understand that if you accuse, you are accusing someone of having no integrity.
I do not believe accusing a player of steroid us is accusing him or her of having no integrity. Steroids are just another group chemicals that when used properly, have a place in everyday society. Doctors commonly prescribe it to patients, it's been refined and proven to have far more benefits than risk.
Also, I am not accusing Griffy of PED use, only pointing out that we don't know who exactly has and hasn't. Don't disregard my "Griff probably didn't take them" statement, please.
