    Jason Giambi says that he did take steroids and human growth hormones.

    He also said that he got those steroids from Barry Bonds’ personal trainer, which isn’t good news for Barry. Barry is on pace to become the all time home run king and if he is guilty of taking these drugs his records should be taken away.

    Agreed but....it should only happen if....


    Barry Bonds admits to taking steroids.

    or

    He fails a drug test.

    The thing is, let's say Barry took steroids 3 years ago. He would be a fool to be taking them now.

    I am frightfully close to swearing off professional sports.

    I dont follow "professional sports" anymore.

    Couple of years ago the Finnish team of Skiers got caught so pants down it was a huge shock, even for me.

    It wasnt just one guy getting caught, it was systematical doping on the Team.

    The media follow up was pretty intense. Got OD of that also.

    I lost my interest on Professional Sports, I didnt even follow the olympics at all last summer.

    I watch some football or hockey sometimes thought..

    I agree with most of you here. If Barry Bonds is proven to be using steriods, his records should be taken away, but I also think he should be banned. It makes him just as bad as any of the players involved in the Blacksox scandle, and way worse than Pete Rose. Cheating is cheating, and Jason Giambi should be banished as well.

    I think I can go with you on banishment, Rob.

    I have very little trust for any Top Sport athletes, regarding doping.

    They take a piss and the cup melts everytime.

    A buddy of mine did triathlon some years back,
    on a county level, in Finland (ffs).
    He couldn't compete as ppl was using stuff at that level allready.
    He did it more for a fun and being in shape than seriously competing.

    Made me wonder what its like on a National and the International level.

    For example, is there a single athlete out there without the Asthma ?
    And what about the "needed" allergies to get the medicin that helps the breathing...

    Absolutely.

    I've been waiting for the lid to be pried off this one for twenty years.

    Afronaut-

    I've thought the same way for many years; I am confident at this point in my life that had I not wrecked a knee in high school I'd be retired from the NFL by now (I was talking to scouts from U. of Wisconsin as a sophmore; this was when the recruiting rules were even more seriously flouted than now).

    I was pretty good.

    It so happens, though, that had I actually made the grade, I'd probably be dead from getting caught-up in the initial explosion of steriod use.

    As it is, I'm a walking medical miracle; actually realizing my dream would have been the worst thing that could have happened to me.

    It is rather sad that it has become so commonplace for top sportsmen to take these things.

    I was, however, rather taken with the tale of one (Jamaican, I think) athlete who failed a drugs test - they found he had been smoking cannabis. Surely he should have been given a head start and anything distracting removed from his line of sight.
