For years, and even now to an extent Major League Baseball had/has a system that protects the guilty, nothing more than a pathetic self policing honor system.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame specifically lists integrity, sportsmanship and character as qualifications for entry. Electing Barry Bonds and other cheaters like Gaylord Perry to the Hall makes a joke of the entire process.
So I don't make the Barry supporters cry I'll preface this by saying it is nothing but pure speculation on my behalf.
Bonds willfully soiled the game. He lied about his abuse, abuse that gave him an advantage over players who didn't resort to illegal means to advance their game. Barry Bonds doesn't deserve to be in the HOF in my eyes.
