Barry Bonds is the greatest home run hitter in baseball. Therefore, he’s been singled out. Pitchers aren’t as admired as home run hitters, otherwise Roger Clemens would be the focus. The most celebrated steroid user in baseball will naturally get the most attention. Please save the racism comments for when they actually apply, otherwise the meaning of racism is diminished.

When Michael Jordan was trying to win the championship for the Chicago Bulls he played when he had the flu and he hung on and they won, that was sportmanship.
But most of sports have become big business there is no loyal teams, the bying and trading is like horse trading only the horses are people and everything goes to the highest bidder.
The sports announcers go on and on about the poor team that lost, but get real someone has to win and someone has to loose, but can you blame everything on the players and coaches?
But this thing about Bonds is everyone really knows what is going on but when the ticket numbers go down those in control usually look the other way.
But now that Bonds is getting old he just has to be put out to pasture. Just like a horse same as when the grayhounds get too old to race they are put down.
Thank goodness that he got some money out of his sport.
But if he was taking juicers he may have shortned his life all for the glory.

I think that Mick Mc Gurire took juicers also but I think that there is a little raceism here from the courts of justice to the court of sports, there is raceism.
On another point when white kids do something wrong their punishment is always less than black kids, case in point, Jenna, La.
It’s like we really don’t like these people and they don’t deserve their awards so let us take it away from them.

When African Americans are as prolific in the big business of sports, odds are that when a super star is indicted, she/he will be African
American. Most losers hate winners in any field. I have to wonder if white guys are juicing and if they’ll be caught.
You’ll have a hard time convincing me there’s not just a little racism at play here.
Big money in sports brought this on. Not juicers.
I have an idea. Except for the score, stop counting in sports.
