bornIcon, I am sure that you would not like your son to lose on spot on the baseball team because doesn't want to take steroids or HGH. This is a public health crisis (like heroine, crack, etc...). If Iran was get anthrax from some scientist then that guy would be causing a public health crisis and we'd have a hearing for it too. The grandiose nature of this hearing is fine with me.

Please do not attempt to trivialize the seriousness of this congressional hearing because it not longer suits your fantasy of morality in America. Clemens deserves the same vociferous media representation advertising money can buy. There are just as many people that dislike Clemens (b/c he is a fake), as they are people who dislike Bonds (I am one of them, b/c Barry Bond is a racebaters). Ultimately, we must remember this is not about an individual it speaks to the greater ideal that is America.

Some of you Rodger advocates where the same people bashing BARRY BONDS! Rodger CLEMENS deserves this and more! The government wants to prove that they did went after Bonds for the right reason and not because of his disenfranchisement as a black man in America. They had to go after Clemens (another cheat) to make sure this grand standing is fair.

Brady is really hurt! I saw the play that injured him. I don't remember who sacked him. But he ducked to avoid the brunt of the hit and an O-linemen fell on his leg. He briefly grabbed the back of his knee&calf muscle. I am assuming it might be a sprained MCL or calf muscle. However, there is no way Brady is not ready to play.

All these negative comments are so pointless because at the end of the day those guys are millionaire and at one point the best at what they do. While all the nay sayer are get to go home to their 2000 honda accord and wait for their TV dinners.

Also, if it turns out Indy was pumping crowd noise in, what will you say about those cheaters? Greg Aiello from the NFL says (to 'EEI) that they are investigating whether the questionable crowd noise was a CBS problem or Indy broadcasting noise. posted by yerfatma at 9:35 AM CST on November 5 > yerfatma, I am glad you caught that. I recorded the whole thing. I hope the colts organization gets investigated too. THE COLTS ARE CHEATERS! LOL!

Of all the crazy proponents to the Rick Ankiel and Rodney Harrison HGH stories, the comment posted by holden holds the most water. I think an athlete under doctor’s supervision could be allowed to use drugs to get to a baseline strength and conditioning after an injury. Guess what? It's always been done that way. However, the problem with that argument is, how to define “baseline”. Also, Bonds is crucified not because of race/ethnicity as most in the media have tried to purport, but simply because he wasn’t a nice guy in the media’s critical lens. He let the pass (his father’s treatment in the MLB) dictate his behavior in the present. Harrison (black guy) and Ankeil (white guy) for all intented purposes are media darlings and therefore get a free pass followed by a public relations slap on the wrist. They play the game by understanding that they are a brand marketed by none other than the media. Is it immoral to judge the stories with such hypocrasy? Yes. However, sports reporters are not of the United Congregation of the Mediast. They report sports news with all the bias and spin of a watercooler conversation about the new receptionist in client relations. The story has got to sizzle because the alternative is an arkward walk by to the cubicle, hoping for a better story tomorrow. End of story…

sickleguy, I don't think you understand what steriods does to the body. It does not help you hit balls. But it helps the muscles recover very quickly from rigorous weightlifting. If Barry is taking the stuff it is not helping him knock balls out the park, but it is helping his ability to stand on those bad knees and recover afterwork outs. However I would doubt that he is even able to take the suff during the season since he is the most scrutinized player in the game. Therefore steriods has nothing to do with Barry when his on a Baseball diamond. Do you know what happen when you stop taking steriods? Assuming Barry can't take it during the season...his steriod powers would be nagated because it only works when you are taking is consistenly otherwise you get fat and Barry is anything but fat. Maybe a fat head, but that is about it. Also, if steriod is this almighty enhancer of ability then why is Barry not jumping higher and running faster? So steriod only affects the upper bodies ablity to perform at peak? Barry is the greatest HR hitter to play the game. the sooner we respect his accomplishments the sooner we accept our identity as a Nation.
