Are MLB players telling the truth?
Wed, February 13, 2008

Brian McNamee said he injected Roger Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs more often than he previously claimed, starting their high-stakes testimony before U.S. Congress on Wednesday with new attacks on the credibility of the seven-time Cy Young Award winner.

"I have helped taint our national pastime," McNamee, the pitcher's former personal trainer, said in his prepared statement, released before the start of the highly anticipated hearing.

Clemens has denied the accusations that became public in December's Mitchell Report.

Do you believe Clemens and other players when they say they did not inject themselves with performance-enhancing drugs? Have your say in our forum.

McNamee comes out firing

Just curious though RJ

Do you think the only differnece between you being able to play baseball like clemens or Bonds is steroids?

These guys have lots of natural talent.

RJ and Oneida have both valid points. I agree more with Oneida because saying the kids do the same is the fault of the athletes passes the blame onto someone else. Maybe we should be looking at the parents more than the kids. Who pushes the kids to be pros. Are drugs just the problem?

I don't think the players should be crucified for giving us something we crave and pay a fortune to see. I think we should be looking at ourselves to blame and see how we can correct that.

Oneida,

If everbody does what effect does it have on all the kids who play baseball? And then there would not any talented players, there would only be drugies out on the field.

Twisted logic that you use there Oneida. I can see the lack of principles and ethics in your twisted logic. The health of the players and the impact on the youth who look up to the pros is of course a major concern to most level-headed people. Geez, you would have loved to have lived in Roman times that would allow you to attend the Christians versus the lions show at the Roman Colosseum! Maybe the gladiators fighting to the death on alternate days would satisfy that entertainment void that you crave as well. Entertainment at any cost? Why? I sense the discouragement by some decent people in their comments. Please do not give up the fight! This is what the cheaters want us to do! To hell with them! We must continue to scream against these practices of cheating by drug taking to enhance performances. There is nothing that can be acceptable other than healthy competition in our civilized society. We must keep fighting for it by eliminating these dangerous and unhealthy practices that threaten to rot all of Amateur and Professional sports.

Cheers!

Who cares if they're doped up. If they're all doing it then the playing field is level, is it not? I don't consider it cheating anyway, they are simply trying to be the best they can be. Would you suspend a lawyer who took a substance that allows him to argue better in court? No, of course not because that wouldn't make sense.

Voice of Reason seems to have come down with your "typical Canadian Moral superiority complex" Are you so naive to believe that Canadian Athletes and Canadians in general are not driven by money .Just to mention a few Canadians --Eric Gagne ,tennis player Greg Rusedski , Silken Laumann ,Goltender Steve Vezina ,4 Canadian college football players and Ben Johnson . You know the old saying about people in glass houses . Maybe a name change is in order "Voice of Delusions ".

Does it matter? I mean after all, the players are just like the rest of American society..do what ever for the all-mighty buck. Their attitudes are just the outward appearance of what the rest of the world hates about the States. Namely, arrogance and the do anything to win mentality. Nothing is illegal unless you get caught, then just blow smoke up everyone else's butt until the focus is on another sap.
Voice of Reason, 2008-02-15 13:54:52

Oh and yes, I'm certainly making fun of bonehead politicians trying to politicize a GAME and pick on the athletes that they could never be.

I'm not saying staggering down drunk. For some, a little nip of the old sauce might be just what the doctor ordered to get over the pre-game jitters. At least back in the day of the Babe when you could show up overweight and off-season training was not a blip on anyone's radar.

My point is more that what is one person's performance enhancing chemical was yesterday's norm. Or do we retroactively go back and take away every medal given to an East German athlete in the Olympics. I'd sure like to have them take away Carl Lewis's medals OR give back Ben Johnson's, but that's not going to happen.

Yes, I believe them too. And I'd believe them if they said Gene Simmons is a virgin, Ozzy never used drugs and Britney will be cured by Dr. Phil.
