Bonds* Busted

From the "Gee, what a surprise file".

Relevant quote:

"During the criminal investigation, evidence was obtained including positive tests for the presence of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing substances for Bonds and other athletes," the indictment reads.

He is also charged with lying that Anderson never injected him with steroids.

I wonder what the Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* supporters...er...apologists have to say now?

The indictment itself says that Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* tested positive for steriods so you can't even use the Lance "I've Never Tested Positive" Armstrong defense anymore. The flaxseed oil and arthritic balm excuse is downright laughable. If Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* is that gullible, then it is a wonder he's lasted as long as he has in the Major Leagues.

Back when he broke the record, I said it was tainted then and today's actions only taint it further. But let's assume (and we all know what that does) that Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* was duped by his trainer, Greg Anderson. Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* still should have had the respect for the game to retire and end his chase of Aaron's record. But it was never about the game and it was never about his team, it was all about the personal glory of Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds*.

And how, who wants to make a fool out of themselves and attempt to argue that this story would be just as big today if Big Head BALCO Barry Bonds* had retired before breaking the record and admitted his either intentional or unintentional steroid use?
