    So it turns out that Barry Bonds probably DID take steroids. He's also in a lot of trouble now for "lieing" about it, if in fact, he did take them.

    If it turns out he did take them, which it's looking like it will, then I imagine his hall of fame title will be taken from him.

    He said he took them not knowing they were steroids. They're never going to be able to prove he knew what he was taking.

    Unless they make a rule that if you take something you need to know what it is... I mean SOMEBODY had to have known. Who did he get them from? I'm sure he knows that. Maybe that person needs to testify?

    It's interesting that this should come up just months after his big record.

    He got them from his trainer, Greg Anderson, who interestingly was released from prison today.

    Is it, honestly, that hard to believe that he knew what was going into his body?

    Wouldn't you question why your trainer was sticking a needle, quite literally, into your ass?

    There's no way he didn't know that he was taking steroids. He just doesn't want that against him and I hope he goes to jail for lying. He should just be a man about it and confess already.

    He won't go to jail for it, ever, unless he was busted in a huge conspiracy and all of his friends turned on him.

    ...kinda like Vick...

    ..but, yeah, he's going to walk. Think he'll lose the record if he gets busted for cheating, or banned from baseball?

    I'm not sure how that works but look at Mark McGuire? Wasn't there a similar issue with his home run record a few years ago?

    If Pete Rose was banned from baseball for gambling, then anyone who uses performance-enhancing drugs should also be banned. For life. It's pretty much a joke that you can test positive and only receive a 15 game suspension or whatever it is. I'll be VERY surprised if he ends up in jail, and there's zero chance they'll take away his homerun record.

    You can't take away his homerun record. That's impossible. The only time it'll be taken away from him is when another baseball player slugs more homeruns than Barry Bonds. But, that might be 10-100 years from now.

    I don't think they should put an asterik on his homerun ball either. Mark Ecko is, simply put, a moron. And his video game was absolute garbage. :lol:
