How do you feel about Bonds hitting No. 756?
Wed, August 8, 2007

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?

Well it's a sad state of affairs in baseball when you can "*" a true home run hitter such as Roger Maris. Now we see today's athelete for what they truly have become. Pompous, self centred, egotistical maniacs with an obsession of "me first." Gone are the true heroes I grew up with in this sport and sadly, the moral decay of the so call atheletes still rings in my ears each time a new contract is signed by a greedier group than before. The "wannabe's" continue and the sport declines. I truly think we've reached a sad pinnacle in this time when you can reward someone for their selfishness, their use of controlled substances, lying, cheating and stabbing in the back to be in the forefront of the sport. How about we look at the good players rather than the self focused few who do little to deserve our attention. Really, where do our kids turn now when this type of player is all they see? Sorry, but I can't get excited by someone like Bonds clearly focused on his own accomplishments in a team sport. Perhaps I'm cynical, but how do you explain the miracle mark broken if not without medical assistance and controlled substances. Nope, not wanting to bask in the history for if anything, Hank Aaron's mark still stands as a testament to a player, a true athelete deserving of the title. He earned the respect of the fans by his unselfishness and Bonds would do well to attempt to even capture but a wisp of that greatness.

Congratulations Hank, you still have the record in the true fan's eyes. You and Maris were both robbed in different times and similar circumstances.

Another tainted record, sigh..Who do we cheer for? Who is clean today? Who cares!

Tell ya what, as soon as they recognize Ben Johnson as the fastest human on earth, I'll accept Barry Bonds as the greatest homerun hitter of all time.

I don't understand why it is an issue. Barry is playing the rule. There was no drug test at that time. If Aron knew that the performance drug, he might use it. The record would be 1000. Anyway, this record will soon be broken by ARob within 7 years. Then, there will be no more discussion. Actally, shame on Bieg and Aron.

THE QUESTION WITH BONDS WILL ALWAYS BE: WHAT COULD HE REALLY HAVE DONE WITHOUT STEROIDS????

Bonds - liar + cheater = no hall of fame.

Wow did you ever have alot to say for someone that couldnt get a word in edge wise.

Just so you know anyone can have a comment posted in here anytime.

Nice name by the way, afraid to use your own I see, you are so brave.

It really is a sad commentary on 21 st century North American society when such an event is even worthy of debate. A cheater in professional sports? From spit balls to pine tar, baseball itself has long been a game of cheaters. Bonds is just another millionaire in our greedy society.

GREAT JOB! WELL DONE!!

He deserves the record. As stated in a previous article who knows what drugs the others where taking.

Bonds lied and is a cheater, great role model for our children. No Bonds isnt the only one to use illegal substances but he is the only one to break the biggest record in baseball. He should not get into the hall of fame as far as Im concerned.

Who cares???? The man is a liar and a cheat.
