Actually he did, he said he answered questions from his legal team which is exactly what Braun said. I don't believe him either, but it is just funny that ESPN ignores the pro Braun part of this and sticks it in the bottom of the article. I gaurentee you if he said I sold Braun PEDs it would be plastered all over ESPN regardless of whether they believe him or not but because he said basically "Braun is telling the truth" they bury it. They handled the entire failed test the same way. ESPN reports with an agenda, they always have.
Just to be clear I don't think this helps or hurts Braun's case for innocence at all. That isn't the point. This is about how ESPN chooses to report this story, at every turn they have taken the most anti Braun slant they could. I'm pretty sure it is because they attacked him pretty hardcore when the failed test news came out and then when he didn't get suspended it made them look bad. They also have a pretty anti player slant in general when it comes to steroids assuming people are guilty with even a sniff of an accusation. Again if Bosch had said anything about selling PEDs to a player it would be plastered all over the place but since this is pro player it is ignored. Neither admission would have been anymore truthful than the other.
