Pretty simple for me. He's the greatest player I've ever seen, legendary players don't come around often.
I was just curious. He is the greatest player I have ever seen as well, but I can't stand him.
I have become an Alex Rodriguez (and Peyton Manning) fan simply because I keep rooting for them to shut up all of the people out there who bash them with no basis for their arguments. I was just wondering if the same thing was going on with Bonds. I have not rallied around Bonds simply due to the fact that I believe that he used PED's and that from everything I have read, he just seems like a jerk.
Often times, sports fans get carried away with players and the various personalities. These guys are not paid to kiss our feet they are paid to produce numbers. At the end of the day, none of these guy are my friends, family members or associates. I really don't care how much of a jerk or how nice they are as long as they do there jobs. Think of your office, I bet those who produce the most are hated the most due to jealous and envy.
Bonds, Jordon and Woods are 3 of the best athletes of my era. I love him because of what he has accomplished from a numbers standpoint. As far as the allegations with steroids, he still hasn't been proven GUILTY.
