• Roger, Over And Out?

    Posted by on February 28th, 2008 · Comments (3)

    The news, or should I say quicksand, just keeps getting worse and worse for Roger Clemens. But, perhaps the biggest question here is: Does anyone even care anymore?

    If someone told you that you could never hear any news about Clemens, ever again, and it would only cost you a dollar, would you be as quick as me to pony-up a buck?

      I’d pay more than a dollar. I’m completely sick of this story — not just Clemens, but the steroids issues itself. Enough about Bonds and Clemens and who did what and when and for how long. Let’s just move on. I don’t want to see either of those guys end up in jail — that would be incredibly pointless.

      It’s become pretty obvious to me that the only people who care about this story are the reporters — fans want to move on, but the media wants its stories and they love this thing because it’s the exact type of gossip, tabloid crap they thrive on.

      More than likely, Clemens did HGH and/or steroids, but is it really in the government’s best interests to investigate that? Is it really that important?

      Bud Selig’s desperate attempt to restore his name, and try to erase the “Steroid Commissioner” label, by letting Mitchell (who apparently did a dance when he got the info on Clemens) release names the way he did has totally blown up in his face. Steroid use happened, but that doesn’t mean we have to revisit it. All we should concern ourselves with is the new testing policy. Selig put himself before the game and damaged it severely.

      This is the best quote–

      “The divide over the memorandum was reminiscent of the Feb. 13 hearing, when Clemens and McNamee contradicted each other. The Democrats sided with McNamee, and the Republicans backed Clemens.”

      Are the Republicans going to request McNamee be investigated for lying next? What the hell, I think they should. This is much more important then $9 trillion in debt where whether we raise or lower tax won’t pay down the yearly interest alone regardless.

      If Woody would have went to the police this would have never happened…

      If Roger would have just came clean I can confidently say that he would not be in this situation he faces right now. The amount of evidence is simply over whelming against him. But none of these atheletes get it. Its not the crime. Its the cover up that ticks congress and the public off. Im sorry but Roger needs to be made an example of.

      If I never heard another thing about Roger Clemens sure I could get on just fine with life. But in all honestly, I cant help but wonder how much deeper of a hole Roger Clemens is going to dig himself in this week. This whole scenerio is sad and interesting to me at the same time. I think the way this whole scenerio played out may be a deterrent and lesson in coming clean for future athletes who get caught cheating. Its true if they are caught they may not be completely recognized for the milestones they reached in their careers but they do leave with some sort of dignity. Just look at Giambi & Andy. Atheletes like Barry and Roger just strike a raw nerve with the general public. They prefer to pee on our leg and tell us its raining. Is he innocent until proven guilty? Yes. Do I have an opinion? Yes, a strong one.
