What's your reaction to A-Rod's confession about his steroid use?
Tue, February 17, 2009

Alex Rodriguez offered new details Tuesday about his performance-enhancing drug use, saying his cousin injected him with an over-the-counter substance to gain an energy boost.

The New York Yankees star said using the banned drug that he said he obtained from the Dominican Republic was a "stupid mistake."

"I knew we weren't taking Tic Tacs," said Rodriguez.

At least Rodriguez admitted it.

One thing I don't understand is why the US Congress is involved.

This is a baseball matter; it should stay within the confines of baseball.

I just think they should move on and have better testing. What was done in the past is done and over.

It's pretty easy for self-righteous David Ortiz to talk about punishment. All he has to do as DH is sit on his fat butt the whole game and get up to bat maybe 4 times. Release the other 103 names; I'll bet he changes his tune when he finds out some of his teammates are on the list.

gord, you may be able to understand - I don't. Nor do the hundreds of players in MLB who DON'T take steroids.

He knew what he was doing was wrong - just as those pitchers who "doctored" balls, or hitters who stuffed bats knew.

I agree with that Red Sox player who says the ban should be for an entire season for anyone caught cheating. Make the punishment stiff enough and it could act as a deterrent.

steroids were invented in 1930. Apperently the only years of concern are 2001-2003.

What ever

Steroids have been in sports longer than anyone watching now has been alive and no rich athlete is immune from the shadow it casts.

Babe Ruth owned race horses which were on steroids and he saw the benefits they had. He was Rich and had superhuman records. Think he was clean?

A-Rod

A-Roid

A-Holes

Most everyone has been or is on juice for a long time now. ONLY 103 NAMES ? Give me a break.

That's because many others were just not caught at the time or the hush was broken.

Olympic track or weight stars juiced ? Pro Cyclists juiced ? Football players

juiced ? What about hockey and cold medicines ?

In the world of mega-million dollar contracts and endorsement deals most anyone wants the edge that will help them be the best.

Sports has for a long time been a business with the drive to succeed accentuated by a bigger payoff.

This is a fact of life and until true accountability is rendered it will always be.

If it's illegal in the street, then it's illegal in dressing rooms, gyms, arenas, and anywhere else and could and should be prosecuted by law - just another drug.

I watched rodrigues when he played AAA ball for the cannons in calgary alberta. He was extremely talented then as he is now. while I don't condon the use of roids, I can understand the tremendous pressure to excel, that he is under.

To say anything besides, he knew what he was taking and why would be a lie. You don't have someone give you medication and not know what it is.

I am insulted to think that athlete's that have taken performance enhancers think we are stupid enough to believe their far fetched reasons.

They just need to say ..."I wanted to be better because of the money, fame and security that it could bring. It was worth the risk to my health and I am not sorry but I will submit to testing to prove I won't do it again." The end!
