"Cheaters never prosper" It's a beautiful thing when right over throws wrong!!! Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were denied acceptance into the Baseball Hall of Fame today and hopefully forever. I have about as much sympathy for them as I have for Lance Armstrong,Marion Jones, Alex Rodriguez, Ben Johnson or any other athlete that cheats their sport and the fans. None!!! My sympathy goes out to the men and women that finished second, third or fourth. Too lose doesn't make you a loser. Too win by deception makes you a loser and much worse a COWARD!!!
Every time I hear a denial of PED use, I hear the voices of Lance Armstrong, Rafael Palmeiro, Roger Clemens & Marion Jones in my head
Jose Canseco, Sammy Sosa, Mark Mcgwire, Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, Roger Clemens... Marion Jones, Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods... Michael Vick, Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno, Jovan Belcher, Jerry Brown, Josh Brent... It seemed like when I was a kid, sports were just sports. Have people changed that much or do we just know that much more about people? I feel like watching SportsCenter now is more like watching CNN Headline News.
Since the beginning of time sports and competition have been a foundation in all societies. From the Roman gladiators to the modern day sports heroes one thing is constant. Children and adults alike look up to these men and woman. With the epidemic of steroids, human growth hormone, and performance enhancing drugs in sports the last 25 years what example are we setting? Some of the most prolific football, baseball, and Olympians of our time have cheated. They took their checks, fame, metals, and rings, but what about being a good role model for the next generation? Jose Conseco, Marion Jones, A Rod, Shawne Merriman, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens. I can keep typing but Im sure you get the point. Why is it more of a deal that Armstrong used PEDs than anyone else? I do not in any way support this drugging BS but I also dont think him doing it is any bigger than anyone elses. Its not a story anymore. So why are people who it does not directly affect acting like its a shocking thing or like it is a persona ...
'Heroes and Role Models'... We need our Heroes and stories about Heroes. They are timeless fables that help us see how big we can be. As the Heroes story grows bigger and bigger over time, so do our expectations about what each of us can become over time. But in Our Time it's the Heroes Egos that are growing wildly out of control as they all but shrink away from all the responsibility that comes with being a Hero. 11 years ago Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark Mcgwire, Sammy Sosa, Marion Jones and Tiger Woods were all modern day Heroes in the eyes of so many kids around the world. Today, all I can say is where did all the Heroes and Role Models go, and which W.A.Y. will our children go... now that all of their Heroes have gone away? Maybe, these athletes weren't really the Heroes we thought they were to begin with. Maybe, real Heroes are the people who do what they do not for glory, money and fame... but because they "do the right thing" when the right thing is what we need done. And they do what needs to ...
The United States of America was built on the merits of honor, freedom, liberty, dignity, strength, peace, and prosperity. However, when it pertains to American sports figures, these morals and values are tainted by an endless drug investigation. As a young child, the window of influence is left infinitely wide open. So when I watched prominent national figures like Mark Mcgwire, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, Lance Armstrong and countless others accomplish seemingly insurmountable feats, I celebrated just as any proud American would: emotionally with a big smile on my face. But the revelations of alleged drug use, falsified statements to a grand federal jury, and admissions of shame or guilt has lead me to believe that my childhood viewership and commendments of these cheating athletes were all just a lie. It pains, hurts, shames, sickens, and saddens me to see these people undergo such a fall from grace. But more important than that, it reaffirms my belief in children's needs to discontinue t ...
referring to Role Models, not sports heroes, but the concepts come from the same deep-seated need to make things what they are not. We crave illusion, and athletes have historically been vessels of our self-deception. In light of the dramatic falls of Michael Vick, Marion Jones, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Tiger Woods and now Lance Armstrong, we need to either recalibrate our definition of the sports hero or scrap it altogether. The concept is based largely on ignorance: the less we know about an athlete, the easier it becomes to invest him with lofty ideals. The ideals have little to do with the athlete’s character and everything to do with creating an artificial construct that serves a need.
For the record I still consider Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds, Mark Mcgwire, Marion Jones, and Roger Clemens as All-Time great U.S. athletes
Congratulations Pete Rose, Barry Bonds, Marion Jones and Roger Clemens...Lance Armstrong surpassed your worthlessness of an athlete.
Ben Johnson , Marion Jones , Barry Bonds , Roger Clemens , Rafael Palmeiro, Eric Gange , Melky Cabrera & now Lance Armstrong.Cheaters who refuses to face the people who looked up to them and admitted they cheated! The ones that stand up and admit it are given a pass...(Alex Rodriguez , Ryan Braun , Guillermo Mota , Mark McGuire & Jason Giambi) just have the balls to admit it!
After watching this ESPN 30/30 on Marion Jones and PEDs all I can say is Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens deserve to go through the same thing
Is it a coincedence that the feds convicted Barry Bonds and Marion Jones but the country supports Roger Clemens and Lance Armstrong what's the difference.
It's official. Lance Armstrong has been STRIPPED of his Tour De France titles and SUSPENDED for life from cycling for doping! He's worse than Roger Clemens and Marion Jones!
Lance Armstrong is about to be stripped of ALL SEVEN of his Tour De France titles.dude has been battling the anti-doping agency for years! He won't be able to coach cyclists, he can't compete, or own a team.its a shame that almost EVERY great athlete we put on a pedestal in our generation was thought to be "super human". Barry Bonds was the best home run hitter of all time...Mark Mcgwire and Sammy Sosa battled to be the best home run hitter in a single season...eventually McGwire won..only to be surpassed by Barry Bonds.Marion Jones was "the best female track start ever". Roger Clemens and Andy Petitie both busted.IF ANYONE IN SPORTS IS DOING ANYTHING EXTRADORDINARY...YOU SHOULD BE SUSPICIOUS OF P.E.D. USEAGE...Usian Bolt, he just jogs to the finish line after being the second slowest out of the gate, Tiger Woods was the greatest golfer we have ever seen, he is more physically fit then any golfer, and he had been treated for an injury by a know Dr that provides pathients with p.e.d.'s. Michael Phelps? Al ...
Has anyone noticed the desparity between Lance Armstrong's steriod use versus other athletes like Marion Jones, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Etc. I guess if you raise $100 million for cancer research I'll give you a pass.
Way to go Lance Armstrong. Got to give it up to all the cheats: Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco, Roger Clemens, Ben Johnson,Marion Jones, O.J Mayo, Mark Mcgwire, Shane Mosley, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Gary Sheffield. I'm sure I missed a ton of them. Oh yeah, let's not forget Tiger Woods. Sooner or later, the world will know that even the most talented golfer, I have ever seen, cheated too. What is fair play? We all love the Avengers. It is really cool too boost up a drug-induced superhero, like Captain America, who defends American ideals - I guess. Thing is Superhero and Superstar are too totally different things. Stop cheating!
Barry Bonds and Marion Jones were found guilty of perjury but Roger Clemens walk and Lance Armstrong had charges dropped against him...that's not racist...just like people constantly heckling and disrespecting the President while he is giving speeches is not racist either, though no other President has been disrespected like that.I'm just saying.
Roger Clemens found not guilty. Barry Bonds, not guilty. Two other baseball players found not guilty. Lance Armstrong will also be found not guilty. MARION JONES, GUILTY sentence to Five years in prison. Stripped of medals and broke. FAIR? I THINK NOT.
Marion Jones is on with Piers Mrgan. Ben Johnson around too? Wait..whaa..is that Roger Clemens in the green room??
Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds are Dominicans? How about Andy Pettite and Shawn Merriman? Marion Jones?
