Has Bonds EVER tested positive for steroids? NOPE

Has anyone EVER seen Bonds inject himself with any chemicals, hormones or steroids? NOPE

Is there any proof whatsoever that Bonds took anything illegal? NOPE

Heck, steroids and growth hormones weren't even "banned substance" in MLB until a few years ago.....so even IF Bonds or anyone else were taking them, it was NOT illegal.

Baseball and the Federal Government have been on a "Witch Hunt" to nail Bonds fore more than 3 years now and guess what? THEY HAVE NOTHING ON HIM!!!

I truly hope for your sake that you don't still seriously believe that Bonds is clean.

Look at Kirstie Alley 20 years ago and look at Kirstie Alley now and try and tell me that she hasn't been over-eating.

Now, I can't say for sure because I've never actually watched her eat, and I'm not familiar with her regimen of exercise, etc.

I hope you get my point.

I think in general, baseball players are punks and have this soft attitude towards the dumbest things...they are whiners and p*ssies who act tough in one instant and whine about something insignificant and downright childish the next

You could have just as easily said this about players in basketball, football, etc. or really people in general.

baseball players are especially pussified....

they do things like chew and spit and act tough and then whine if a guy stares at his own home run shot for too long...

the whole dynamic between the pitcher and the batter is beyond stupid...Pitcher feels disrespected, he throws the baseball at you, and then the game is basically derailed while pitchers take turns hitting the opponents batters

WTF is that all about?

that is some special idiocy not seen in other sports or walks of life

How about a whole team complaining other one ran up the score? Or giving a guy a hard foul for showing you up at the end of a game? Or running into the stands because a guy threw a cup at you?

lets do them one at a time

*How about a whole team complaining other one ran up the score? - I think this is on par with some of the bullsh*t that goes on in baseball... I think its disingenuous to complain when you get your butt whupped to the point that people think they were running up the score on you...and it takes some nerve to actually come out your face and point the finger at them for running it up when you need to point the finger at your own guys and have them point the finger in the mirror when they stand in front of one..

*Or giving a guy a hard foul for showing you up at the end of a game?Showing you up how? Im not opposed to being physical to an opponent that is being physical with you, but when you basically stop the game to trade "tips for taps" while alls it is doing is hurting the both of you? thats just dumb

*Or running into the stands because a guy threw a cup at you? While not good for your pocket, Im glad Artest did that for one reason...Fans need to learn their place at a sporting event....Same rules apply in the real world...if you throw a drink in my face, imma punch you in your face, very simple equation right there.... fans like to get carried away with the drinking booze and acting stupid..they need to understand what will happen if they get out of pocket too far...

none of this compares to baseball's issues.. the biggest of which is their stupidity... When McGwire and Sosa were hitting a ton of homeruns while obviously on some kind of enhancement, baseball ignored it...Now they have allowed their sport to turn out of control to the point where nobody can achieve anything without coming under scrutiny for steroid abuse.. Sport has totally fallen apart and its their own fault for not being honest with themselves and lettin the game get outta control..Now they talking about astericks and legends are bickering with each other over who belongs in the hall and who should have what next to his accomplishments and who should be kicked out altogether.....its a mess and they have no-one to blame but themselves....

He can write his own ticket

at you comparing what aaron went through to what bonds is. i would be pissed if i was aaron too. i wouldnt want some mutated science project breaking and cheapening my record either

I totally agree with you. Somebody breaks my record without any controversy surrounding that guy I'd have no problem. Break it in a tainted fashion, like let's say steroids, that's more than a reason to not support or appreciate that feat. If I did it the hard way why support someone doing it the most convenient and easy way?

Now we're making McGuire cry again...
