Should be interesting to see how many "Liar" and "Scum" comments we get towards Mark, Don't you think? .

"Most concerning to me, is the negative effect that sensationalizing steroids will have on impressionable youngsters who dream of one day becoming professional athletes.
"Once and for all … I did not use steroids or any other illegal substance.
"I am enjoying one of the happiest periods in my life with my wife and children, and I will not allow false accusations to hinder that."
I think when the anger passes, as it has for me, the result is "screw it, they probably ALL used something" and just play the fantasy game. Real baseball has been (or is being) run into the ground, unless you're a Yankees, Sox, Cubs, Braves, or Cards fan. I used to be a huge Tiger fan. Now baseball feels more like soccer than a sport I'd watch. Put it on after rugby on Fox Sports World.
Frequent drug-testing and a level playing field? Shouldn't this be obvious? Am I stupid?

wr, the only evidence or circumstancial evidence surrounding McGwire is taht Canseco said he did steroids with him. Bonds' all of a sudden gets huge when he's paying a drug company, BALCO, for drugs, and this drug company has been taken to court for supplying steroids that cannot be tested for to it's clients. Sheffield has said that he and Bonds used steroids together one offseason, but Sheff at the time apparently didn't know they were roids. Are you really that surprised that nobody is pointing fingers at McGwire? He's always been huge. He hit 49 HR's as a rookie. Bonds had a huge growth spurt in his late 30's while associated with a drug company that supplied undetectable steroids to it's clients. Please, give it a rest. Stop trying to make this about race.
