I know this has nothing to do with the OP's question, but I needed to get it off my chest. Thanks.
Wow, this thread got a bit knotted up, eh? Thanks for the link, worked like a charm.
We are indeed innocent until proven guilty. However, Mr Dubdub Fehr (Head of the Players Union) Each and every player named in that report had been given every opportunity to answer the accusations directly to the accuser, and each and every one of them flat out declined. Each player named had been named with very clear and detailed evidence attached. I think the entire steroid problem had been taken pretty lightly until there were more names than just Bonds thrown out there. It almost dares the players union to pull a strike against stricter testing. Cheating is cheating, and I made sure to let all my Yankee fan friends that they can no longer bring up the 2000 Subway Series due to 1/3 of that Yankee team CHEATING!!!
You could love this list or hate it, it isn't about throwing these players in jail, it's about exposing them for the cheaters they are no matter who they play for. There is no reason they couldn't answer the questions they were asked, and in my opinion, I think this forces the league to take this stuff more seriously.
