    2004 -- Suspended four games for steroid violation.
    2004 Miami Dolphins 0 0 0 0 --- 0 0 0 0 0
    2005 Miami Dolphins 5 0 4 80 20.0 54 0 1 1 2

    Can't find a list of all NFL players who have been suspended for steroids, but if memory serves correct, they are usually running backs (sammy morris, ricky williams), wide receivers (boston), and defensive backs (matt stevens). Can't remember many linemen. Maybe I'm wrong, just going off of memory.

    Why are those four years in bold, and not his rookie year, too?

    That's because linemen, having been juicing longer, are better at covering their tracks. Those Carolina linemen didn't get caught by any test.

    Assuming Lance Armstrong has always been clean.

    Has any American professional athlete reaped as many benefits and achievments as Barry Bonds, through the use of performance enhancing substances??
  5. mark mcgwire, jose canseco, sammy sosa, raffy p, brady anderson, etc....... bonds was the best player of this era long before he saw a needle. steroids have ruined the last 4 years of bonds career. he has not benefitted.

    Jason, I may regret asking this -- and I'll preface this quickly by saying I've avoided much of the steroid talk on this board for the last year, mainly because I'm so sick of, and sickened by, this story.

    But are you suggesting that McGwire, Canseco, Sosa, Palmeiro, Anderson, et al, are generally considered clean by the American public?
  7. no. i don't think people consider them clean. i think they built amazing baseball careers using drugs.... bonds built an amazing career with his own talents and then briefly enhanced his talents with drugs...

    How is one worse than the other? Cheaters, all, no?

    First, nice assumption he hasn't been on SOMETHING for his whole career.

    11 years ago, what would you have written?

    "O.J. Simpson was a personable, funny guy, except for a brief moment of irritation."

    That, sir, is a gigantic assumption, one that very likely isn't the case.

    I wonder if most Americans assume Lance is clean (I obviously don't), and what it would take to convince them he is not.

    That's a sport whose testing has nabbed dozens upon dozens of competitors.

    What's it gonna take for jokers such as you to stop smearing his name?

    Lance Armstrong has never tested positive for steroids. Nor has Barry Bonds. Both are surrounded by circumstantial evidence. BTW, ask his former wife about St. Lance's good name.
