Re: The Mitchell report

Ahh see, futbol's near misses are just as exciting, if not more, than the goals themselves. And at 90 minutes, even the shortest of attention spans can watch and entire game.

Portuguese National Cristiano Ronaldo is a midfielder for Manchester United. And while he is well-renown diver, his dribbling skills are rarely matched:

Re: The Mitchell report

Where's Sosa? Not mentioned.

McGwire? Only talks about andro which was legal at the time.

The bad part we probably don't know about most of the violators. You know there are alot more that aren't named.

Re: The Mitchell report

I feel the same after seeing the list.

Kind of a let down. There has to have been more. George Mitchell is the worst detective ever.

Wow, that makes me want to get some of these on pay per view and watch them run up and down the field all day missing goals. I'm not knocking you and know its a big sport around the world but I cannot get into it.

Do you like any sport besides football? Last two days, you've knocked soccer, boxing, and baseball.

Re: The Mitchell report

I say pump everyone full of steroids and just let them go out and throw a ball and hit it with a stick until they get tired.

Was this report paid for by tax payers of MLB? I heard it cost 65mil.
I could watch a futbol every day. Have you ever watched any of the better european clubs for a full match? I used to live in Italy, the team that the town I was in followed was Juventus. Their kits were black and white striped (like a referee). I can't tell you how cool it was to sit in a local bar with 90+ italians jammed in watching a match on tv, the whole place in team colors. yeah, there's not always alot of scoring, but that's what makes the goals and near misses so exciting. You can feel the pressure build, the momentum swing and the drama of each miss so much more than in NFL games, at least to me. So, yes, I would GLADLY replace roidball and basketball.

Re: The Mitchell report

On the Bonds thing:

Am I wrong or has Bonds been saying all along that he took the cream and the clear but didn't know they were steroids. The Mitchell report spoke of others that verified and repeated what he said. He thought it was flaxseed oil. This is what he testified in the grand jury indictment a couple years ago. So, he's on trial for lying about whether or not he knew these were steroids right? He admits to taking them.

Now whether or not you believe him is another story.

Now...Sheffield.

No news here. He's been saying this for a couple of years. I do believe him, b/c Sheff doesn't give a rats behind what anyone thinks of him. He states that he worked out w/ Bonds for an offseason (and his trainer) and used what he thought wasn't a steroid. It turned out it was the cream and the clear. You rub this on as an ointment. His relationship w/ Bonds turned quickly south b/c of this and other things and he never touched it again. So, i don't think that this guys whole career should be discounted for one mistake.
