In response to FE-517's comment:
I'm still waiting for Big Floppy to clear up his own ROID allegations. He has whined about being linked to the 2003 list repeatedly, but he never "cleared up the mess". Any sane fan knows he's a cheater, and if you don't, you can't read. Just look at his stats and overlay the years. If/when he gets caught, we'll just be looking at another Ryan Braun.
I am happy to see that most Red Sox fans on these forums saw Dumpster's actions as classless and over the top. However, for the "fans" in attendance, it was pathetic, as were the cheers of the fawning pink-hatters.
We all hate ArOD. I wish he would go away. But the players union negotiated the current CBA and the rights are the rights. Since Dumpster is a big union guy, maybe he should throw at his own empty head?
Good post Triumph...remember Manny was also one of the biggest offenders out there and he was Papi's BFF...I remember when he tested positive Papi made some lame excuse for him...sadly MLB players have a fraternity of sorts that goes beyond team rivalry...it's called privilige and they are all in that exclusive club...
I thank you. I just think there's so much hypocrisy to go around its hard to figure out who the real villains are.
And none bigger than Bud Selig. They were happy to collect the booming revenues after the 1994 strike ended and the homers were flying out at unprecedented rates. McGwire vs Sosa. Followed by Bonds.
What was Bud Lite® doing then? Nada.
I think the biggest frauds are the guys who never got caught. I'm a Yankee fan, but I thought Pettitte's excuse was absolute BS too.
Maybe we'll all think different when we see what MLB actually has on ARod, but at this point, I think Selig overreached.
