Until you can show any proof that a) his head is bigger b)there is any scientific evidence at all that steroids makes people's heads bigger, and c) Bond's head is bigger because he took steroids, your apparent conclusion that he's on steroids is totally unfounded.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Was Maris’ personal trainer indicted for distributing illegal steroids?

Bonds as quoted by Redbird Nation, responding to Turk Wendell’s charge that he’s as doped up as an East German weightlifter:

"Just to disrespect other people like that, or talk to the media, I think that's chickensh*t. If you've got something to say, you come to my face and say it, and we'll deal with each other, but don't be a p*ssy and go talk to the media like you're some tough guy."

Sounds like ‘roid rage to me. I wonder if he and Mike Tyson have the same anger management counselor.

Where did I say he wasn't doing steroids? Where did I say that he is doing steroids? None of us know if he has done any or not, only time will tell. I just thought I'd post up the other side to the argument, as Bonds is constantly getting smeared by people in here without looking at all th facts.

It's just assumptions right now. That's all it is. You assume that he took steroids, when you, like I, don't know if he did or not. Only time will tell.

A grand jury need only find that there is probable cause to indict. Additionally, the grand jury is allowed to consider evidence that would not be admissible at trial when making that determination.
Although technically an independet body, a grand jury is more or less an arm of the prosecution. I have heard this exact quote from more than one federal prosecutor (one being my advanced crim professor), "A grand jury would indict a ham sandwich if I asked it too." Nearly all states have abondened the grand jury, and allow the government to bring trials by way of an Information, which basically requires an affidavit laying out facts sufficient to show that there is a mere probability that the defendant commited the offense.

My point is that an indictment does not equal a conviction. If I'm not mistaken, one is still innocent until proven guilty. Doesn't mean that Mr. Anderson will not be found guilty, but don't go jumping to conclusions just yet.

Just to add some more fuel to the fire ;-D

"Lawyer defends Bonds

CONTRA COSTA TIMES AND WIRE REPORTS

Giants notebook

The lawyer for Barry Bonds' personal trainer, Greg Anderson, said Thursday that his client says the Giants star never took the illegal performance-enhancing substances Anderson is accused of buying from sports nutritionist Victor Conte Jr."

Pretty tame words compared to what I might have come up with if I was in Bonds' position, and I've never taken steroids.
