  • aaron foresees bonds breaking hr record

    aaron on bonds: "Records are made to be broken, and I want you to understand that. Barry has been a tremendously gifted player. We can't sit here and accuse him of anything. He hasn't been found guilty of nothing. We talk about it and talk about it, and that's all I can say."

    That's what I have been saying. I think he did the roids, but has he ever got caught? No. So, until then, I say he has never taken steroids.
    You know it!

      What did you expect Aaron to say?

      Bonds is cheating me out of my record? The guy has more class than that.

        ^^^"we can't sit here and accuse him of anything."

        hank aaron's tone has changed a bit from when he said this:

        "first, since I played the game myself, i know that you can't put something in your body to make you hit a fastball, changeup or curveball. the only person who can do that is the good lord. but, at that age (40), you have to ask: did [bonds] accomplish all of this by rejuvenating his strength from day to day with those substances?... drugs won't help you hit the ball. but can they make you recuperate consistently enough to hit the kind of home runs that these guys are hitting? let me say this. any way you look at it, it's wrong."
        -terrence moore, atlanta journal-constitution, 5 dec 2004


        although aaron positioned himself in the form of a question, there is no mistaking that he - relying on alleged leaked federal grand jury testimony - thought bonds to be guilty of taking steroids.

          God, please tell me you're not a teacher.

              Because it's scary that someone with that attitiude would be allowed to infect the minds of childern.

              It's ok to do it, just don't get caught.

                What do you have against teachers? Hey, OJ didn't get caught. Lance Armstrong didn't get caught.

                Speaking of steroids- I heard a rumor that an Outfielder from one of the AL playoff teams had a positive steroid test. He is now going through the appeals process, and supposedly, it is going to be released in the next few weeks.

                  what does OJ have in common with Armstrong ? OJ is supposed to be a murderer....depending on what you think..Armstrong did roids..or said
                  the french..who are chomping at the bit, that an ' american ' has been
                  whumping euro butt on the tour, the past seven yrs...so to save face,
                  the froggies are suggesting that Armstrong did...something...

                  as for Bonds and whether or not..hard to say..the line is drawn by many fans..and the public...again, draw yer own conclusions....

                    I got nothing against teachers. Kids hear that kind of stuff and they think it's ok to do it, as long as they don't get caught.

                      63 did not post that it is ok to take steroids illegally. he posted his opinion of whether or not bonds - an individual - did or did not.
                      the two are nowhere near the same thing and ought not ever be swirled together.

                      ............................

                      many teachers have "values" and beliefs that are passed on, or "infect" those they do instruct. besides, many teachers do not teach children.
                      why single out teachers?

                        Doesn't have to be a teacher neccesarily..could be anyone who influences morality in the impressionable.

                        Let me rephrase it.

                        I hope you're not in a position to display that attitude to children on a regular basis.

                        Better?

                          neither simpson, armstong nor bonds have been found guilty of wrongdoing in a criminal court (simpson guilty in civil court), yet many think them to be guilty of crimes.

                          i think that most americans have moved on past the simpson case, most of the french are not champing at the bit about armstrong (they love that he lives there half-time and speaks french fluently and promotes the sport) and most of those who presume that bonds llegally used banned substances do so without restricting their decision to the facts of the matter.

                          human emotion plays a large part in the three stories.
