    Lawmaker wants FBI drop Clemens probe

    Why do i have a feeling this lawmaker is a yankee fan and is brainwashed into believing that clemens is clean.....if you cheat you should be punished ...clemens is a big boy let him fight this� ...hell he has more money than any able bodied working stiff can even imagine and an ego as big as texas ...any other normal person wouldn't get special attention from a lawmaker.

    Lets see... congress asks the�Feds to look into Clemens, but the FBI says it's going to give it up because 1 congressman, some "Weiner" from NY wants them to.� LOLThat said...�I have to say... I think spending any more taxpayer spending on this stuff is a waste.

    Ok then i agree that they are spending foolish amount of money on clemens ....and they should be concentrating on real problems...the economy, the homeless, the war....��but mlb�or a organizied party�...���should be investigating clemens and bonds ....for they �should be �accountable for their actions.

    A candidate for New York mayor in 2009.

    I have a feeling that if he were a candidate for Boston mayor he might take a different stance.

    I couldn't agree more txheat. This has gone beyond ridiculous. Our lawmakers should have more important things to do then police sports. If they don't then we have elected the wrong people.

    This is an argument (should Congress be involved or not and who should or should not go to jail etc.) that we will never be in agreement on so I won't perpetuate it. I do however need to point out one thing that keeps coming up on this board, that is the money spent on the Mitchell report. 20 million over 2 years. MLB paid 20 million dollars over 2 years for the Mitchell report and time after time people on this site complain about that price. MLB made 6+ BILLION last year so it is safe to say in the two years that the Mitchell report was being put together MLB made 12 BILLION and spent 20 million on the report, not really a big issue.

    True.� You can't stop the flood once it starts.� They've gone this far with Roger (at his own doing) they need to finish through with it and if the results are the same as Marion Jones and others who received jail time, then Roger needs to get the same.

    Here is another reason whty the rest of the world thinks this country is a joke. Without getting political this country has been at war since 2001, we are facing a recession, the housing market is tanking�and congress is worried about the Patriots and the destruction of tapes by the NFL and worried about�baseball players and other athletes�using drugs.This guy seems like�he may have gotten asked a favor by Clemens.�Don't get wrong I was a big as Clemens fan as there was dating back to his Boston days. I have met him, I have some memorablia of his ( I should have sold it when�was more valuable) and�over the last year or two I lost all respect for him. His ego took over,�and now it�is so bruised he needs to lie. A guy like�Pete�Rose told the truth and he gets banned from the Hall of Fame, McGuire, Bonds etc.. all have gone though the firing squad but becasue it�this lawmaker has a man crush on Clemens he wants him to get off. Doesn't�he think McNamee is taking a lot�from the public? How about the normal everyday people sitting in�jail becasue of a crime they did not committ,�but did not have the money to get off�with a slap on the wrist? Haven't they�been thought a lot? Hey, I� have an idea, lets put even more money into our governments pockets and close every prison �becuase they have suffered enough sitting behind bars. What good is having a law�if someone �can get around it because of who they are. �

    Victory I'm not sure your analogy works here because Enron's "cheating" cost a lot of people a lot of money it is a totally different circumstance. MLB chose to use their own money to investigate themselves, to use your analogy, if the CEO of Enron had chosen to do an internal investigation into Enron would you have cared how much money he spent on the investigation?

    He's suffered enough? Gimme a damn break. Clemens is the one who wanted to "set the record straight," remember.

    How can anyone feel sorry for Roger Clemens?

    HMMMMM?....DO we agree with some gov't official deciding to make it so that the liar who was willing to treat the congress like kings vice paupers should not be treated like an American but rather like an ELITIST?....NO, I DO NOT AGREE WITH IT!� There are several others that they have punished.... Marion Jones, Martha Stewart, Pete Rose, Willie Nelson for other crimes that some might not have considered a "big deal".�� Marion Jones was not treated bad by the public? Really?... Hmmm Didn't she have to give up her GOLD MEDALS?.... Is she not going to jail?Martha Stewart was not treated badly?� HMMMM.. Was she not required to give up the operational control of her company� temporarily and then sent to jail for a few months?Pete rose... well we know how baseball has treated him.... he spent time in Jail for Tax evasion based on not reporting gabling winnings if I remember correctly.... I am sure he misremembered other income too.... I think I have made the point... As I see it, we have punished many another person who got caught, even though they were people of power....The only difference is that ROGER buttered up the Congressional turkeys!� Maybe his lawyers did give him good advice. ��

    ����������������������� Unfornunately both people and athletes respond to "trauma." They usually only "get it" if someone hits them numerous times with a sledgehammer. Maybe if Clemons gets slammed and ends up in serious, serious, legal "hot water" other athletes will realize { a little more than they do now--there is no panacea} that this whole steroids thing is very real and the consequences are very real.............It is not "ok" to lie to Congress. I don't care if the CEO's of the Oil Companies and guys like Oliver North did it or not. That doesn't make it ok......................Steroids {and HGH--which athletes will continue to do until there is a test for it} are not "ok." They are not "harmless." Steroids give you an advantage over me. That is unfair. If you use steroids and I don't then you have the advantage. I have bicycled competitively. If you are "blood doping" and I'm not then you have an advantage which I DON'T LIKE at all. Unless it is going to be made legal for every one to do steroids then the use of them is an unfair advantage which hurts the integrity of the game. {By the way despite the fact the "blood doping" scandals have almost wrecked cycling the cycling authorities are still very aggressive in searching it out.............................good for them!!!!!} I hope professional athletics, college athletics and high school athletics aggressively pursue steroids, HGH, and blood doping wherever appropriate....................If Roger Clemens is a "fall guy" so be it.������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������� -W-������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������

They have not liked us for more than 20 years!� Not just because of this president which is what the press wants us to believe.� The Hatred has been deep seeded and well this country was ridiculed by the entire world when the last guy was in office.... we were considered weak and the rest of the world figured that they could do whatever they wanted wherever they wanted whenever they wanted..... and well that is what Clinton showed them....� He was too busy taking cigar afficionado to new heights, to give a crap when the COLE was sunk... he didn;t even know the Khobar towers were hit until three days later because he was too busy "not inhaling".� HE WAS A FRIGGIN JOKE....Although I do not like a lot of what the currewnt man is doing.. I do respect him for sticking to his beliefs, and history shows that his beliefs have some foundation..... At least he didn;t flip flop and allow US MILITARY to be picked off without making the American people put their money behind those military men.� According to the LIBS "They support" the military..... they claim it- I don;t believe it- but at least they claim they are behind the military, and they do not attack them like they used to in the early 90's.

    You don't get to be mayor if you diss a Yankee icon.

    Dillard,� personally, I would never consider Roger a Yankee icon.� He's more in the "rent a player" category.� Dimaggio and Mantle were icons, two of many.� Jeter can be considered an icon.� Roger had a few good years (for us) ,� was around for a WS, and generally is a horse's petooty.�� Other rent a players, David Cone for one,� did just as good a job, arguably better, without extra curricular attention, or bat throwing.
