    Brian Roberts admits using steroids


    Not sure if I believe Roberts' claim that he only injected steroids once any more than I believe Pettitte, but that is what he is saying. He admitted using once in 2003.

    I posted this mostly because I thought the Mitchell Report's evidence against Roberts was extremely weak and wrote exactly that last week. Obviously they had it right on this one.

    I still think the standard of proof for listing those names was not enough, but that report is looking more and more appropriate as more of these guys come out with admissions of guilt.

    and Michael Vick is sorry, Pettite only did it twice and Clinton did not have sexual relations with that women.
    How many times do people have to be snowed by theses athletes before they stop falling for their apologetic bullshit.
  4. What reason would he have to make it up? No one saw him do it. It was the most circumstantial evidence in the whole report. He could have easily said that he was just saying it to sound cool and been fine. He didn't have to admit it, and he did.

    At some point, do some of these admissions sound a bit like those perverts who showed up in the Dateline NBC To Catch a Predator sting operations who said that this was the only time they had done it. ... Mr. Roberts, you're free to go.

    i, for one, don't "fall" for the bullshit. but i do appreciate the staged apologies more than the denials expressing outrage.

    I guess you also believe all the denials of the last 15 years as well

    I don't understand the apologies.

    I really don't.

    Come clean, say why you did it -- in particular, say you did it because you were worried about falling behind other players who were doing it -- and move on.
  9. No, I'm as cynical as they come. I'm just saying - why would Roberts even say ANYTHING? Why not deny, deny, deny. They barely had anything on him.

    I guess he felt they did have somthing on him.

    Exactly, just come out and say I was scared that I would fall behind if I didn't. I think people would understand that a hell of a lot more than these bullshit apologies
