    In todays column sj's favorite columnist looks for the Feds to start chasing Roger Clemens like they chased Barry Bonds. Hmmmmm -- wonder why?

    Hope they do, too . . . but for the RIGHT reasons . . . not Bill's.

    Are you implying something about Bill Rhoden?

    Bill's body of work speaks for itself.

    No they should pursue Roger but for all the right reasons - not to even the score with Barry Bonds.

    Rhoden seems to forget that Bonds is now being harrased because he lied. As much as we have read over the years here at sj that perjury is not a big deal the judges do not seem to feel that way. Along those lines here is interesting story on Marion Jones.

    Despite a plea to the judge for a light sentence, the former Olympic track star Marion Jones may be facing more prison time than she expected for lying about her steroid use and involvement in a check-fraud scheme.

    United States District Judge Kenneth M. Karas filed an order Thursday in White Plains asking the prosecution and Jones’s defense team to explain why Jones should not be given two consecutive sentences for her two counts of providing false statements to federal agents. He wrote that consecutive sentences may be possible if they occurred in “separate investigations of unrelated criminal conduct in different jurisdictions.”

    Based on this thread title I thought Rhoden was calling for more minority hirings and the Newark paper.
  8. Jesus, the Rhoden threads here belong on StormFront.

    Jeebus, let's keep the feds out of this altogether. The last round of congressional hearings were a fricking dog and pony show.

    Baseball now has steroid testing in place with a punishment schedule. They're working on HGH. What else can you ask of them?

    If you feel a need to act, let's blackball the past offenders from the HOF and move on. Let's quit beating a horse that died 6-10 years ago.

    There is a penalty system only because of the hearings.
    If it weren't for public perception and pressure and baseball looking like morons, it would have been status quo.
