How about Tiger? He's jacked up now.

Not always.

I don't know. I'd imagine there are, but there's probably not been much of a push to test...for anything. :wink:

There is no testing in golf. Tiger has publicly said there needs to be which is brilliant if he actually is or ever was. Gary player took some heat saying he knows of players who have juiced, but did not name names.

Did you move back down to the advanced division?



Lol. No, but I dont consider myself much of a disc golf pro either. I was speaking about real pro athletes in a major league setting. Maybe even a minor league setting.

Im not bragging about it or anything , just being honest and greedy.

Did anyone get to catch the press conference with Arod yesterday? I like Arod, and no matter what he did, has done, or is doing, he is one of the greatest players in the game today, and before it's said and done maybe ever. It's sad to say that given the recent circumstances that status will be lost with many baseball fans.

As for the press conference, what a joke. Half of the questions he was asked never got answered, except with the response of "I was young and stupid." Billy Ripken with MLB network put it best. "Your were not young. You were 25 years old and in the bigs for 8 years!"

When asked the question, if he didn't know what he was taking, why did he not ask the team trainer, or a professional. Long pause, then of course "I was young, and stupid."

You have to give ARod some credit for adrressing the public and admitting he did wrong, but I think he's digging himself a deeper hole now by not giving the full truth. Not telling something is the same as lying.
This is long from over, and it will get more interesting when someone finds/ reveals who ARod's cousin is who he elegedly got the substance from.
NO!......Welp!?

As a BoSox fan, I have a small bit of satisfaction seeing him make a nunce out of himself. I don't believe 80% of the hash he's slingin'. Dude got busted and now he can't get his stories straight. Every time he gives an interview, there are different details. And it's not over for him or the team. Have fun with that boys.

As a baseball fan, I find it almost tragic that so many iconic players are being dragged through this. I'm cringing for the day that Manny, Pujols, Papi, Griffey, Aramis or any of the so-far "clean" players are outted. Clemens is the only guy I really rooted for that's been ostricized. He's the reason I started rooting for the Sox. Now I see him as just a chump.

I'd be happy if the media just called off the dogs and left what happened alone. There won't be any penalties; only ruined reputations and uncomfortable news conferences. Just walk away and leave it alone. Fat chance I know, but it's just a witch now. A race to see which news source can break the story first. Sad stuff really.

I dont think that he has answered any "actual questions" that have been asked.

have you ever watched an interview with an athlete? They never answer the questions that are asked.

Give him a break. A-Rod is the shit. You still have to make contact with the ball, steroids doesnt help you do that.

but what about base running, would it help there? Or being able to throw the ball from 3rd to 1st on one knee..would it help there?
