What are the horrible incidents that happened in KC? I'm not calling the Bonds booing in Phillie a horrible incident, but I can't recall anything that has happened in KC that even approaches cheering Michael Irvin when he is injured, booing Mike Schmidt for playing below HoF level, booing the hometown Kobe Bryant at an All-Star Game, throwing batteries at any player, or needing a courthouse inside a stadium to handle all the problems that happen.

As far as the ineptitude of the teams being an excuse for the fans, there are plenty of other cities that have the same type of circumstances. I guess Phillie fans enjoy just writing the way fans in those cities react as them just not being as "passionate" for the game as they are. *shrug*

Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Bonds could silence all this talk about steroids if he just submitted to drug tests. He's not a member of the union, there's no one stopping him from doing it except himself.

You do know that Bonds has taken and passed every drug test that was ever administered to him by MLB right?

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Testing or no, it's beyond question that Bonds juiced with something. The only question, really, is how people feel about that.

Bonds is likely a cheater, but he does not deserve the flack he is getting from fans. No fan has a right to humiliate him like everyone does. Fans who dont like him should simply ignore him. Then maybe I wouldnt see him on ESPN every five seconds.
