Do you sympathize with Roger Clemens?
Fri, May 2, 2008

NEW YORK - Roger Clemens' lawyer says he will talk with his client about whether to press ahead with a defamation suit following a wave of unpleasant publicity in the wake of reports linking the pitcher to numerous women.

"He's getting pummelled," attorney Rusty Hardin said Friday.

The Daily News reported Monday that Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was a 15-year-old aspiring singer and the pitcher was with the Boston Red Sox. Hardin said then "at no time did Roger engage in any kind of inappropriate or improper relationship with her." McCready was quoted by the News as saying: "I cannot refute anything in the story." Full Story

No I dont feel sorry for Clemens at all. All of his skeletons are coming out of his closet and he is trying to keep his head above water to get into the hall of fame, nothing more.

Who knows what the legal age of consent is in Mass. In Canada it was 14 until a few weeks ago they changed it to 16.

The statue of limitations has probably expired since this happened 15 - 20 years ago. Who knows though with american laws.

I wouldnt consider Clemens a pedophile for having sex with a 15 year girl even though she was a minor.

Hardin who is Clemens lawyer hasnt been with him very long, just since Clemens testified for congress I believe so he doesnt know Roger at all, he is just taking his word for it.

People seem to jump to the conclusion that a relationship has to mean sex. It doesn't.

He may have known her (not in the Biblical sense) when she was 15, but I really have my doubts that a 28 year old guy would be interested in a 15 year old child.

Yes, there are pedophiles, but I don't believe Clemens is one of them.

That's not to say that they had sex at a later time.

So, relationship when she was 15, but not sex until she was of age.

Wouldn't the "authorities" be pursuing Roger for sex with a minor if it had really happened?

Yea I am sure Clemens took her up to his hotel room to look at his baseball cards LOL.

The bottom line is she was a minor, he was an adult and married.

Dang you probably believe Bonds is clean and OJ didnt kill Nicole.

The story says Roger had an inappropriate relationship with McCready since she was 15.

That doesn't mean sex when she was underage. She said she couldn't refute the story, yet the story does not say that he had sex with her when she was underage.

Yet, people will jump to conclusions because of the story that the inappropriate relationship was underage sex.

I don't doubt that Roger may have had sex with her, but when she was of age.

People love stories that dig up dirt on icons - it's just human nature.

Actually I believe what Mindy said, she cant refute the story LOL.

Speaking of swallowing I will leave that up to you LOL.
Pete, 2008-05-12 23:12:30

Pete, you sound like someone who swallows everything the press tells them. It does sound like Clemens had a relationship with Mindy McCready, but a sexual one when she was underage.

This is just sick that the press would try to imply that.

clemens is a scum bag. he is a cheater, hope is wife divorces him and takes him for everything he has. would look good on the loser.

Since there is nothing bad going on in the US their Congress needs something to keep them busy.

A he said - he said argument on roids is pathetic. And why should we care about his private life?
Trev, 2008-05-09 14:33:32

gordholio, Trying to run a smear campaign against cheater clemens ?

he used roids, cheated on his wife with a 15 year old girl when he was 28 and you call that a smear campaign ? good one clown
