Yeah, I think cheater, liar and p*ssy should just about cover it. Scapegoat certainly isn't one of them, however.

Others can ride their moral high horses off to the land of hypocrisy as they wish. And they'd better too. They don't want their lives persecuted, manipulated and hurt like the Bonds' family has been.
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.
Welcome to the Cafe Mate.....
Palmeiro was driving out because he lied to his team mates and to Congress. He was less than a man about what he did. And he tried to take down Tejeda too (remember the B-12 shots). What could you expect the Orioles to do? Bad publicity on a losing team going through all sorts of injuries is a cancer and the best way to deal with a cancer is to remove it. And I don't know if you live in America or not, but most people unless you're from a very a diverse city could look at Sammy Sosa and say he's not Black. Most Americans are ignorant. I don't know about Barry's private life, but marriage is a failing institution in America. Over 50% of marriages fail so you have to take that the way it goes. Anyway, let's be honest. Unless Bonds quits it's a given he'll pass Hank Aaron and that will bring publicity to a sport that needs it.
