    In my opinion it's Bonds who should be sued by baseball fans everywhere . . .

    for FRAUD! -

      baseballwise, in no way have i excused bonds.

      also, having the opinion that bonds is being picked on or whatever is not limited to just giants fans. lots of fans are eager for the season to start in part just so that the steroid story takes a back seat.

      do giants fans, in particular, lean towards having a unified front when it comes to bonds? sure. but i strongly suspect that fans of the other 29 teams would rally 'round one of their own if that player was the target of seemingly endless stories.

        mattingly: ...how many and which questions were asked of Bonds by the grand jury, whose testimony by Bonds was leaked?
        more than one, my man.

        What did the book imply was the one question asked of Bonds?
        did you build [trainer] anderson a house [to repay him for all that he did for you]?

        sorry, no links. just stuff that i know.

          Ask baseballwise what Cub fans were saying about Sosa from 1998 to about 2003.

              So how many questions actually were asked of Bonds during the grand jury testimony? Do you know of any of them?

              As to Bonds being asked about building Anderson a house, what was his reply, according to the testimony? Did the book try to make his reply to that question seem anything more than it was (in your opinion)?

                So what were the Cubs fans saying about him back then? I thought he was very popular, especially in 1998.

                    as long as he was helping my team win, thats all i pretty much cared about. looking back on it doesnt really change my opinion of the man.

                      Never forget! But, forgive? Well, forgiveness comes...

                      You are 100% correct. Embracing the notion of the act of forgiveness is totally foreign to lots of people around the globe, evidenced by the thousand+ year battles of some ethnic, nationalistic, or religious nut groups are waging against another based soley on what happened many dozens of generations prior, and fueled by the latest atrocities committed in the name of revenge, by both sides. America, with all its flaws is somehow different, because we tend to resolve our differences, and be granted absolution hinged on one important component that some people still don't grasp: In order to get back in good graces you must first ask for it. Your request must be sincere, and most importantly say you're sorry. Even if you are only sorry for your ignorance, sorry for your stupidity, sorry that you didn't listen to wise advice, sorry you got greedy, sorry that you let ego interfere with good sense, sorry that you made a bad decision that you were sure was the right one at the time, and sorry you hurt others in the process. Any or all of those things will go a long way toward letting really horrible stuff be forgiven.
                      Ballplayers are humans, too, although sometimes they are supposed to be held to higher standards, that doesn't change the fact that repentence is as human an undertaking as making mistakes.

                        Oh, now I've gotcha. I was about to think that you were saying that Cubs fans were critical of Slammy Sammy. Here in NYC, especially in Dominican-rich Washington Heights (in Manhattan above Harlem), where Manny went to HS, Sammy's daily feats were spoken about on the streets religiously. Now I see what you're referring to.

                        So what you folks are saying is that the Giants fans' reaction to Bonds is mostly a defense of their team's big star, and is similar to what the Cubs fans held of Sammy from '98-'03?

                          It would be a lot easier to forgive him if he would admit to it first. Bonds only wants to accuse the media of being out to get him and keeps running from the issue. Confess his sins and then maybe he can be forgiven....after he is kicked out of baseball.

                            It's all who's perpective one takes. Bond and Giants fans, Sosa and Cubs fans, McGuire and Cards fans. When a player reaches an iconic level, all be it through questionable, if not criminal, means, it's going to be next to impossible for a fan to turn on them.
