Barry Bonds hit No. 756 over the right-centre field wall Tuesday night, and hammered home the point: Like him or not, legitimate or not, he is baseball's new home run king.
How do you feel about Bonds breaking Hank Aaron's record?
Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's record
How do you know the number of athletes not using you DONT. Using illegal substances has nothing to do with the Bible. If you dont know right from wrong then thats not my problem its YOURS.
I could care less what you think. Cheats and liars like you and Bonds are cut from the same cloth and always stick together.
Im sure you have a meaningful life though eh Brent LOL.
Bonds has admitted to using so get with it you know it all! First he blames his teammate for something he took voluntary then says he didnt know what it was duhhhhhh he sounds as smart as you.
You are such a fool, get a clue before you rant about something you know little or nothing about.
Bonds is a cheater plain and simple. anyone that thinks what he did was ok is cut from the same cloth as him, a cheat and liar.
I could care less about you and your crappy life. I could just tell what kind of person you are by your lack of morals.
Bonds " record " should have an asterix beside it!!!

Furthermore ... What the @#$! is it to YOU, anyway !!??
Does Barry's ALLEGED Steroid use have ANY effect on your meaningless existence ?
Does the fact that Lyle Alzado died at the age of 40 have any effect on your day to day ?
You don't want to take steroids then DON'T !!
You don't want to RESPECT the fact that these men (Ben Johnson included) did something NO OTHER HUMAN BEING in the history of the planet has done ... DON'T !!
The truly PATHETIC aspect to all this is that, while all your types rely on that FAIRY TALE BOOK called the Bible for your so-called MORAL CODES - you ALL, so CONVENIENTLY, forget that one little line that says "JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED"!!
Yeah, I do CHEAT on my TAXES ... (just what the #$@! is so MORAL about being TAXED, anyway ??)
Yes, I did CHEAT on my (ex)wife ... what the @#$! is it to YOU !!?? The world is still turning, and she happens to be my BEST friend to this day.
Clearly, the MAJORITY of your type - have ZERO CLUE as to what it takes to be an ELITE athlete. As I said, you could take every enhancer known to the human race and you would NEVER, EVER, in a thousand lifetimes come close to doing what these men have done.
I'll just THANK them, VERY MUCH for their EFFORTS and wait for the NEXT great THRILL !!
Men like these DON'T need people like YOU to CARE for, or PROTECT them ... they made the DECISION to pursue their DREAMS and set higher goals ... good for them !!
Long live Barry ! Long live the FASTEST man on PLANET Earth, Ben Johnson ... and if they happen to make their FINAL exits a little earlier than the AVERAGE JOE ... thanks again for their COURAGE, and efforts to THRILL ME !!

My dislike for Bonds doesnt have anything to do with how he treats the media. I have lost respect for him for being a cheater. Also he is a liar for saying he didn't know what the substance was that he used. Give me a break, no one in there right mind is going to take any kind of substance if they don't know what it is or what it does for you.
Bonds doesn't have any morals and thats my problem with him. Whether he likes it or not he is a role model for a lot of people but especially the younger ones that some day dream of being a pro athlete.
There is a reason that neither Hank Aaron or Bud Selig were there when he broke the record. That should speak for its self as it does to me.
To me it doesn't matter if its a banned substance or not, if you have to do something like use a substance to gain an advantage over your opponents then it's obvious it's wrong. Pro athletes in any sport have God given talents, that should be enough, it got them to the pro's, if it's not good enough to be one of the best, then do what the old saying says, practice makes perfect, not using substances.

Hopefully his death opened the eyes of others using roids but I doubt it.

We all are allowed to say how we feel about Bonds or any other topic we choose.
Dont tell us to shut up because we have morals and you dont. Its an issue of morals something you dont have or probably know the meaning of. If using illegal substances isnt a big deal why isnt every pro athlete doing it ? Someone risking their future health and well being by using illegal substances is very stupid. Know one knows what the consequences will be 5 - 10 years down the road.
I bet you are the kind of person that cheats on your taxes and wife/girlfriend if you have one. Your mentality is as long as you dont get caught it isnt cheating which is pretty ignorant.
Whoever it was that commented that when Ben Johnson is legally acknowledged as the worlds fastest man I will concede Bonds is the all time home run hitter.
Jimmy, 2007-08-08 18:45:16
I struggle to understand how your poll on the all time best home run hitter includes Sadaharu Oh but doesn't mention Josh Gibson? Take a look at Gibson's lifetime stats. I don't know that the fact that he didn't play against the alleged major leagues should work against him as it historically has. Many 'real' major leaguers stats can be debated every bit as aggressively as can Gibson's. Mr. Bonds, unpopular as he may be, has passed Mr. Aaron. Like 4192 hits for Ty Cobb or 511 wins for Cy Young, this is an indisputable fact, no more and no less. Put this ridiculous talk of asterisks to bed once and for all. A case can be made that every record in the book should be 'qualified'.

To all you CRITICS who couldn't run 100 metres to save their life, let alone even DREAM of making contact with a baseball ... Shut Up !!
You all could take every drug known to the sporting community and it wouldn't help you ONE IOTA toward becoming a better athlete.
Personally, I don't give a damn WHAT a man takes to make himself the BEST he can be ... it's HIS LIFE !!
You all call it CHEATING, I call it using the science and knowledge of the day to MAXIMIZE god given TALENT, AMBITION, and DETERMINATION.
Congratulations to Barry Bonds for an ACHIEVEMENT of the AGES !!
To all the DETRACTORS, and MORALLY SUPERIOR types - you are just a bunch of sorry losers looking to put a man down who is A THOUSAND times the athlete you could EVER DREAM to BE.
The time is NOW - to stop all this MORAL handwringing over what an athlete DECIDES to do with THEIR BODIES' !! All the time, energy, and resources spent trying to "catch" these so-called "cheaters" could be BETTER USED trying to make the PERFORMANCE ENHANCERS safer for those ATHLETES who are truly, and best served by them.
As a PAYING FAN of Sports - I not only WANT, but DEMAND to see things done and accomplished that I, personally, can only dream of doing. I want the VICARIOUS THRILL offered by their HEROIC accomplishments - NO MATTER what they did to THEMSELVES to do it.
For the same reason I don;t PAY to watch WOMEN's athletics - I want to see things I KNOW I CAN'T DO !!
LONG LIVE BARRY !!
