ESPN.com - MLB - Report: Bonds, others received BALCO steroids
So the elephant that has been standing in baseball's living room for past year or so finally gets validation. While speculation surrounds all the allegations, finding out that at least some
of the best players in the league were using steroids, maybe even to break one of baseball's most holy records, shakes the foundations of baseball. Can we look at baseball players, the regular man's game, the same ever again, and the answer must be equivocally no. While ignoring it has been the rule, now that it has validation the community can no longer stand idly by as if it didn't happen. The issue is no longer testing the players to ensure fairness, the issue is that players have been using it and the game is forever tainted. The cloud hanging over the past few years record is the players union fault, because we don't know whether they were or weren't, unfairly casting the taint on everyone. The players themselves though, are ultimately accountable for their own actions, and I plan to hold them as such.
