    Before the board's Brewers fans start sucking each other's dicks, did any of you read the story?

    He won the appeal 2-1 on a technicality.

    "Someone familiar with the decision said the appeal went Braun's way not so much on contesting the result of the test but the testing process itself, some kind of technicality. And it was arbitrator Shyam Das who decided to rule in favor on that technicality, making it a 2-1 decision by the three-man panel."

    Congratulations. He skated on a technicality. He's probably about as innocent as OJ.

    AP has already said it fucked up.

    For reasons I do not understand, his appeal working will piss off a lot of SJ posters.

    So a lot like Taurasi then.

    That's embarrassing. They need to shore this shit up. Let USADA do it.

    Well, good for him. Everyone else is getting away with it, no reason he should be singled out.

    Overturned? Upheld? Who knew they had different meanings?

    Here's why it pisses me off: Because it makes MLB look like a Mickey Mouse operation that can't run a testing program.

    I'm reminded of the scene in "The Office" where Michael was mortified that Kevin's cancer test came back negative.

    Anyway, you said it, Rick -- shit, wall, etc.

    He still has herpes, though, right?

    Can you get that from deer?

    Because he wasn't exonerated. He won 2-1 on a technicality. Anyone who believes he didn't use PEDs is naive.

    Rob Deer? Perhaps, although knowing his lack of ability to make contact with lumber you are probably safe.
