What should happen to McGwire after admitting he used steroids?
Mon, January 11, 2010

Mark McGwire admitted he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998. He used steroids on and off for nearly a decade.

McGwire's decision to admit using steroids was prompted by his decision to become hitting coach of the St. Louis Cardinals, his final big league team.

What do you think should happen to Mark McGwire after admitting he used steroids? Have your say in our forum.

Personally I think that any and all records that can be attributed to his use of steroids should be erased and if in the baseball hall of fame his spot removed

Major League Baseball owners made little effort to do anything about the performance enhancing drugs issue until U.S. Congress stepped in and forced them to. Didn't anyone ever wonder why these guys got so big so fast? Far as I'm concerned, they're all to blame.

The homerun records are already meaningless, so taking away McGwire's records are pointless. And MLB doesn't have the moral authority to suspend or fine anyone for past offenses of this nature, seeing as they looked the other way because the big homerun races made them a lot of money.

The only way to salvage what's left of MLB's integrity is to implement proper drug testing and enforce the rules.

Can you say that every player, even the greats in any era had not used the "juice" of the day. You cant. Mark and Sammy made Baseball Exciting again and made all those owner fat in the pocket! Only in the last 20 years we had finaly come to find that it can be bad for you from abuse. Again if you think all in the "Hall" are *Clean, you need a reality check! Oh, about that "Hall" look at the voting to get in and the last result, a joke, the voter, whom ever they think they are should have have the *star!

This should ban Mark from the Hall Of Fame. They banned Pete Rose for doing something illegal, so he shouldn't have any chance of getting in. This tarnishes his whole career.

Erase his records.He was cheating by using drugs to improve performance. No different than corking a bat.

nothing should happen. it is the way sports has been for 2 decades. why punish just one man when hundreds if not thousands of ballplayers have done so .

Judging by the size of him and the amount that he likely used, I'd say that he's already down to a weenie-tot with a pair of frozen chick-peas. That's a good punishment to start.

Of course, he should never be allowed into the Hall of Fame!

for what? who gives a rat's arse

I do not think he should be punished,for he was not acting alone. hundreds of players were on the juice in that era.Is he a hall of famer. Time will tell!!!

What were the MBL's steroid use policies at the time that Mark was in the league? If his actions were in direct conflict with those rules then his records must be expunged. It's as simnple as that.
