Everyone who reads Madden should listen to this interview stop.
Now, let’s just say for example, they have proof — good proof, legitimate proof, records, whatever — that Alex Rodriguez sought to buy drugs. That’s a violation. Now they have proof that Alex Rodriguez actually bought drugs. That’s a violation. Now they have proof that Alex Rodriguez was administered drugs. That’s a third violation.
It'd be like if your buddy got busted for a gram of marijuana and got punished once but you got caught and were punished for 10 offenses because you could have packed multiple bowls.
crap like that makes Madden look smart. Madden clearly stated "multiple times". You possess steroids in 2010 and you are in violation of the JDA. You possess steroids in 2011 and you are in violation of the JDA. You possess steroids in 2012 and you are in violation of the JDA. We have debated plenty around here whether, under the language of the JDA, those can count as multiple violations and they may not ... but everyone can see that such behavior would constitute multiple offenses.
That is to say, everyone who's ever been caught for PED's--we all know they purchased the drugs more than once.
This is beginning to feel like it felt during Season 2 on Magnum PI, where the prevailing theory was that Higgins was actually Robin Masters.
Ray, the Higgins/Masters question didn't come up until the final two seasons of the series.
The entire anti-drug movement in sports is just another fascist wet dream based on ill-defined moral outrage and bad science.
I am calling for every MLB player on the 40 man roster to take a banned (not illegal) substance on September 1st, announce publicly that they are doing it and demand that MLB suspend them all immediately, declining any grievance or appeals
I'd like to know what MLB would do. Play A, AA and AAA players? Pick and choose who to ban? Ignore them? Shut it down like 1994?
This isn’t about how a self-absorbed phony like Rodriguez probably loves the attention he has gotten in the baseball summer he has hijacked, or the way the Yankees have played since they got swept in Chicago after he first rejoined the team and actually said with a straight face that he didn’t understand — poor misunderstood guy — what was “motivating” Major League Baseball to pick on him this way.
This is about something else:
How apparently everybody else attached to Biogenesis and baseball drugs in the baseball summer of 2013 is guilty and Alex Emanuel Rodriguez is innocent.

2) He's got the players divided against themselves.
but if you ignore a serious health issue like PEDs, then you will lose credibility with the rank and file.
The union did a poopy job of protecting the players from their worst element, and leadership has yet to put forth a way to deal with the issue. Focusing on the Lords and the evils they do was fine and dandy, but if you ignore a serious health issue like PEDs, then you will lose credibility with the rank and file.
