Bonds Failed 2001 Drug Test - FALSE INFORMATION

Postby BronXBombers51 » Thu Feb 14, 2008 9:34 pm


UPDATE: Apparently this was a typo by the feds. Nothing new has been reported.


SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds tested positive for steroids in November 2001, just a month after hitting his record 73rd home run of the season, U.S. prosecutors said on Thursday.

The allegation came in a legal filing in his steroid perjury case that referred to Bonds' long-time trainer, Greg Anderson.

"At trial, the government's evidence will show that Bonds received steroids from Anderson in the period before the November 2001 positive drug test, and that evidence raises the inference that Anderson gave Bonds the steroids that caused him to test positive in November 2001," U.S. Attorney Joseph Russoniello wrote.

The U.S. government made the assertion in a document that asked a federal court to reject Bonds' motion last month to dismiss the charges that he lied about past steroid use.

In December, the record seven-time National League Most Valuable Player pleaded not guilty to lying to a federal grand jury in 2003 when he denied using performance-enhancing drugs.

He testified in the BALCO sports steroid case, which ended up jailing his personal trainer, Anderson, and the head of the BALCO lab near San Francisco.

The latest government motion also referred to a question by a prosecutor during the BALCO case to "determine why Bonds apparently tested positive for anabolic steroids in November 2000."

To date, prosecutors have revealed little about the details they have in the case against Bonds, the greatest hitter of his era long dogged by suspicions about doping.

It's not that we are over him. It's just that we already knew in our minds that he's a cheater. :-)

Are they sure it wasn't Flaxseed oil that he tested positive for?
Does this mean Barry perjured himself in 93? or does his I didn't knowingly take steroids explaination hold up.

I read this and my, and I'm sure many others', first thought was 'so what?'. Anyone who didn't already believe Bonds did roids is a fool just as anyone who doesn't think Roger, McGwire, Sosa did steroids is a fool.
