I just saw that a few minutes ago. Jee, [SARCASM]I'm shocked[/SARCASM]. You mean baseball players lie about taking steroids?
He might have miscalculated when he was weighing perjury against immortality.
Doesn't look like a case against steroids. Barry will have a long road ahead of him. Hopefully somebody explains what the evidence is against him. Did his trainer finally squeal, or did they just accumulate enough bll%$h#&t to put him away.
Bunch of haters that are still upset that he is the HR King...prosecuters can never find or convict any real street or no name white collar criminals so they want to take down a high profile name to put on their politcial resumes... So he may have lied under oath...how many other steroid or drug users out there have lied to their families and employers about this abuse and are living free from scrutiny.......millions
Perjury is a very difficult charge to prove. Why is it just Barry? Mark McGuire took an oath before Congress and lied, Rafael Palmeiro and how many others. I hate to see only Barry get strung up for this. Talk about an escape goat.
I'm not sure how you can feel sorry for him when everyone else who was called in to testify either admitted it or took the 5th or else was careful as heck to avoid lying. Does anyone actually believe his story that he didn't knowingly do anything wrong? I thought it was BS that congress wasted their time on grilling baseball players about this issue, but once you're under oath, you have to tell the truth.
By the way, did anyone watch the Office last night? There was a pretty funny scene where Michael Scott was under oath in a deposition. At one point, they produced his personal diary and had 11 copied made for everyone in the room.
This whole thing is for show and Bonds is the unfortunate "high profile" victim. These persecutors, need to justify their jobs and of the millions that it has cost the taxpayers.
This large of a disparity does not surprise me at all. There are still a lot of people that are PC in public but bias in private. ESPN - Blacks more likely to feel Bonds investigations unfair than whites - MLB
I don't think McGwire lied. He just refused to talk about the past.
In light of Roger Clemens' testimony under oath, in front of Congress the other day, I certainly hope that he's indicted for perjury along with Mr. Bonds. Anything else would be just a tad hypocritical...don't you think?
Separate names with a comma.
