Oops, guess he should have just admitted he took the damn steroids. He must have misremembered that you can go to jail for perjury.

There may be a little more to the story, too. Wasn't he porking some under-aged country music wanna-be? It's some real convoluted bullshit...

Congressmen do it all the time.

If I were Clemens', I would point out I may have misstepped the truth, but at least I wasn't a complete piece of shit like Rangel, Watters or the other 535 frauds (plus 2 for the fuckos in the White House)

No, but why are they wasting my tax dollars prosecuting someone that allegedly cheated at a sport? The only thing Clemens did wrong was decide to testify, his lawyer should have never let that happen. No athlete can say under oath that without a doubt they never used steroids.

If Roger Clements would've came out and just told the truth that he took steroids then his image wouldnt be destroyed compared to what it is now. Look at Andy Petitite. He told the truth that he took steroids and didnt lie or hide behind a lawyer. Now this is rarely mentioned when Petitite is pitching or anything else.

Arod is also in the same situation. They are both current Yankees players though so they get a pass. If Johnny Damon was suspected of any PEDs he'd be standing right behind Clemens.

Stupid stupid stupid.

It's the league's responsibility to monitor and prohibit steroid use. Not sure why Congress decided they needed to step in and interfere with shit they know nothing about.

I'd rather them deal with this than conjuring up some other bullshit way to destroy the country and raise taxes.

Except if you admit that you used them, immediately all of the other hypocrite athletes, the media machine and every armchair sports expert smear your name and your career slides down the drain.

Congress is doing this so that way teenagers dont take steroids, and Im all for that. Roger Clements, A-Rod, Rafael Palmerio, Barry Bonds, and Mark McGuire are not going to be in the hall of fame not because they took steriods and HGH, its because they lied or got a lawyer to defend them.

As long as coaches still want high school kids to play like pros, there will always be widespread steroid use in teenagers.

I don't either, I just know that there were guys in that same deal that said "yeah I used the stuff" and there was some rabblerabble and now they're doing fine, and one layer of the onion was pealed back...

if they'd all just admit it, people would probably get over it pretty quick

Exactly. If they would ALL admit it, then they wouldn't be able to do anything to them. As long as it's the few singled out by the league/majority, then they will crucify them. It's stupid. Professional athletes don't need to be "all natural". I don't care what they want to do to be their best, just keep quiet about it and play your sport.

Look at the posting time, I fell asleep on the couch. It was like posting while intoxicated
