I feel like my mom, but just because so and so cheated doesn't make it alright for others to cheat.

Yeah, I think cheater, liar and p*ssy should just about cover it. Scapegoat certainly isn't one of them, however.nuggets wrote:We know what has happened to Barry Bonds is unjust because in the end all things are relative to each other.

Oh, so Palmeiro wasn't driven out of baseball a few weeks after collecting his 3000th hit when it was discovered he was juicing? What race is Palmeiro? Not black, which you alledge is a reason people attack Bonds. How about Sosa? Caught with a corked bat, along with suspicions of juicing, his popularity completely plummeted from there, and he's out of baseball, too. Not black, by the way. As for poor Barry and everything his family has been through, maybe he shouldn't have been running around with a mistress, or dragging out his kids for his "heartfelt" press conferences. Yeah, I really feel for the guy.

You either aren't reading or have no credibility. The only things I want to convince you of are:
Bonds has been unfairly persecuted
Wrong. Im sure that everyone who has came out with storys about Bonds do it just to make people hate him right. All the people who take up for Bonds would lead us to believe that the Chronicle and the reporters who are saying these things about Bonds are doing it to ruin him. Im sure that isnt the case.
Bonds deserves to be in the HOF
No he dosent. There is no way he should ever be in the HOF and if the day comes that he is I will have watched my last baseball game, played my last game of fantasy and read my last box score in the paper because I will be done with the sport. I cannot respect a sport that would allow a cheater to be a hero.
You should stop openly hating Barry Bonds.
I dont think that will ever happen. As more of this story comes out and more people realize what scum he is there will be more hayers comming out and that is what MLB needs right now.

I don't think anyone is saying this. I think the point is something closer to....if you want an asterisk put beside Bonds career and season homerun numbers you will also have to put them beside Aaron's and Ruth's (which is fine).

If baseball goes with an asterisk then 20 years from now noone will even remember that and kids will be brought up believeing that he was a great player and that is wrong.
