08 SEPTEMBER 1998- ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA: St. Louis Cardinals' Mark McGwire, points to the sky as if to talk to the late Roger Maris as the Maris family looks on, during ceremonies to celebrate the 62nd home run hit by the Cards slugger, September 8. To MGwire's left is Roger Maris Jr. Maris held the single season home run record for 37 years.

Fuck You! Mark McGwire for what you did to the Maris family.

and Fuck You.... Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds.

Did anyone catch the interview he gave to Bob Costas on MLB Network last night?? Apparently the steroids were just so he could get back on to the field after injuries and had NOTHING to do with his homerun numbers or his size.

Note to McGwire and his advisors: This looks and sounds worse than what he did in front of congress in 2005. If you're going to come clean with this stuff you might as well actually tell the truth.

Yeah, I watched it... He's a piece of shit. "Well....I hit big home runs in Little League and Babe Ruth League, so of course I would have hit 70 without steroids."

Bullshit.

I hope none of those guys (mcgwire,bonds,clemens, etc...) get elected into the hall of fame.

I think we should form a congressional committee, spend millions of tax-payer dollars to review the performance drug policy of what amounts to a kids game. :rolleyes:

Why not just drug test these fuckers and if they pop - suspend them for a year just like combat sports - or let's decide once and for all that we really don't give a fuck and let them take what ever they want.

When McGwire spoke in front of congress was he under oath? If so shouldn't there be some kind of charges involved?

What a douche -

Oh yeah fuck the Yankees :cool:

:agreed:

I just finished reading a couple books that came out recently on Clemens and the steroid allegations. There is in no way that he's ever getting elected to into the hall of fame. The fucked up part about these guys (McGwire, Bonds, Sosa, Clemens, etc.) is that they really believe what they say is true. Clemens has pretty much decided he never took steroids and that's how he's sees it. I would put Clemens even below McGwire. At least McGwire more or less admitted using steroids in 2005 when he said "I'm not here to talk about the past".

And Maris still owns the single season homerun record as far as I'm concerned. When you think about the size of the parks back then, the lack of any real physical training, fewer teams and better pitchers and the biggie, no performance enhancing drugs. Maris did it the hard way.

I agree it seems ludicrous to spend taxpayer dollars on something like this, but if I had a young boy who idolized one of these guys who has been taking steroids and cheated his way to the top, I would want him to know how wrong and unsafe this really is. This whole steroid thing goes deep into sports all the way down to the high school level. There needs to be some type of example set, so youth finally understand the ramifications.

As you can tell I'm a little apathetic to the whole situation but shouldn't it be an issue that the Baseball commission deals with? Frankly no one want's to deal with it because the sport is money driven.

How about if a player pop's positive for banned substances - he is suspended for a year without pay and will be required to visit high schools and give talks about the ills of steroid use - if he refuses then he gets a lifetime ban from the sport. You hit these guys in their wallet - this shit will stop. IMO
