Bonds not the only one...

Postby eftda » Sat Oct 11, 2003 11:19 am

Well, i finally agree, Bonds took roids (maybe... :-D ), but for all of you who said he did, take a look at SOSA. there is no doubt in my mind that he took/takes them. My bobdy building friend said (who took roids) that Sosa, bonds, and Giambi took roids. Sosa is in the NLCS and Giambi is in the NLCS and Bonds was in the World Series (no.., Giants won that series 4 games to none with 4 perfect games...) so maybe this says that taking roids works.

of course, it also shortens your life span, shrinks your testicles, and, oh yeah-is illegal in baseball. :-t

here is my plan: set a year and test players that year and every year following, if they used or are using enhancement drugs then they are BANNED from baseball. yes i am a bonds fan but he should not have used them.. But see, the set year would be like 2008 and every player that starts baseball (mniors) would be tested and would be tested every year following. Those players in the majors who used the drugs would not get banned if the used them in the past but would be banned if the continued to use them

I agree that punishments are way too light for rule violations. I feel that instead of fining a guy $5,000 and suspending him 2 games, why not suspend him 2 games and his fine is whatever his pay is for those 2 games?

i hate bonds and sosa as much, if not more, than most people, but showing a couple pictures and quoting a body building friend does very little to convince me. i have been lifting weights for about the last 12 months and gained about 10 pounds. i am not too serious about it and dont take any supplements. are you telling me a guy who's livelihood depends on getting strong and hitting homeruns and who can afford a personal trainer, dietician, and to lift weights all day when not playing baseball cant reproduce the same results as me?

i agree that the testing process is a joke. there really isnt any point in having a system if it allows people to escape punishment.
