I think his records should be erased and he should be taken out of the hall of fame.

i think players busted for performance enhancing drugs should get a one year ban. i think one year is appropriate for the first offense. people make mistakes in their lives and cheating is certainly one of them but is hardly the worst of them. i am open to giving people a second chance. i think one year is harsh enough to get the point across.

if they are caught a second time they should be banned for life and not eligible for the hof. if a player is banned then any records he may have would not count.

There is NO DOUBT Bonds will still be in the HOF, regardless of the outcome of the trial......He's a HOF player even with out his record breaking season.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

IMO, they should be banned for a year, then be drug test every other week in the following year

That will never happen but I do agree that it should. I personally am not suprised as I dont believe anyone should be so not real sure why everyone is acting like it is a big suprise. If I had my way he would have a lifetime ban from baseball.
