Roger Clemens Trial

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by YankeeFan, Jul 5, 2011.

  1. Some insight into the stuff that Kirk Radomski might testify about can be found at this very easy URL:


    He mentions Segui, McNamee, Clemens, etc. (Interview is commercial-free, too)

    And, speaking of Homer Bush, there was always a story around his urine standing in for Darryl Strawberry's.

    Scott Atrocious . . . one guy who really showed his rabbit ears when on the field wearing a glove, during play. You could see the steam come up when a hostile crowd gave him shit.

    But also a guy who did it right. Retired before his time so he could be home with his kids. Went back and got his college degree to set an example for his kids.

    Most players hang on for every last nickle

    Roger Clemens' ego and delusional denials are costing the taxpayers a lot of money.

    If Clemens is found guilty, he should pick up the tab and nothing more.

    Brosius coaches here at his alma mater. Have enjoyed getting to know him. Has to be one of the most humble former pro athletes I've met.

    Good for him. Salute him, for that.

    Nobody said he was stupid.

    He is still capable of having steam rise off him.

    Potential for a mistrial at this moment.

    Judge in chambers right now mulling over possibility of a mistrial.

    I may have this slightly wrong, but the prosecution showed video of Laura Pettitte (Andy's wife) talking about Clemen's steroid use (based on what Andy had told her).

    Apparently that had already been decided not in admissible, or it wasn't supposed to be shown.

    Clemen's attorney called for a mistrial, and the judge is now in chambers deciding.

    NOTE: I did have facts wrong. Laura Pettitte isn't in the video. It is Clemens' testimony before Congress in which one of the Congressmen makes reference to her having said he used.

    Here is an ESPN link to get a better explanation than the one I originally gave:

    And we have a mistrial. It's like a rainout after four innings.

    Wow, that is a huge move by the judge and from my vantage point was not really necessary. A trial is not perfect and wasn't really a major point IMHO. Its a congressman making a comment about what Laura Pettitte said, a sidelight that the jurors would have likely ignored.

    qt, I think the point is more that the judge specifically told the prosecution no mention of Ms. Pettitte was permissable in any way, and felt the video was flouting his instructions.

    Dear Clemens prosecution team: It ain't Monopoly money, it's taxpayer money your just wasted for your stupidity. Here's hoping the cost will come out of your pocket, not ours.

    Love and kisses, the taxpayers of the USA

    (or should this be in the "dimwit" thread?)
