i haven't seen david nieporent around in quite a while - did he get banned or something?
That would be because, fair or not, nobody on earth thinks of stimulants as "PEDs" except people who comment on this website.
Seems that it's a relevant question for a journalist to ask.
Anything that happened before that - well, unless someone was caught with a Schedule I, II or III drug and prosecuted, you leave it alone. And if a drug that was not deemed illegal by the federal government is later added to the MLB banned substance list and a person (supposedly) used it during that past period, let it be.
I can't say it surprises me that Chris Dial's mendacious formula that...Intent is Irrelevant, has become an official plank in the BTF We Love Cheaters platform.
So yes I think we should be asking Hank about his drug use. We should be asking him to give us more detail than just two or three sentences in a book. I don't think that is so unreasonable to ask of man who is opining about PED use in baseball.
the punishments aren't NEAR enough for such pol pot level evildoers
first, they should have their children taken away
if they don't have any children, they should be castrated
then gang raped
then all of their money and property taken away
then their fingers chopped off to make sure they can play ball any more
then they should be blinded so as they can't even SEE the game again
Yep, because Melky was probably thinking "well its only 50 games if I get caught, but if was 100, no way would I cheat!"
Baseball instituted its drug policies after the 2003 "anonymous" sample testing. Anything that happened before that - well, unless someone was caught with a Schedule I, II or III drug and prosecuted, you leave it alone.
That's my opinion, too.
But if you're talking with a guy who doesn't go by that, as Aaron's clearly indicated in the past, the fact that the guy also did PEDs under the exact same scenario as Bonds shouldn't be something to be avoided
Cycling bans first-time offenders for 2 years. Cycling conducts more testing than any other sport I know of. Cycling prosecutes retired athletes for offenses more than a decade old. Cycling even involves the gendarmerie in anti-doping efforts, conducting hotel raids during the sport's premier event. And what sport is seen as having the worst doping problem? Yep, cycling.
Meanwhile, over in the NFL, if I'm not mistaken, they don't conduct off-season testing, they suspend 1st-time offenders for 4 games, and they have hundreds of guys that weigh 300 lbs and sprint faster than running backs did in days of yore. And the NFL's reputation is way better than cycling's.
How about golf? Doesn't test at all, millions of dollars to be made, and today's players hit the ball much farther than yesterday's players did. I'm 100% confident that golf has doping, but does it have a doping problem? Doesn't seem like it.
My theory is that RDP is Nieporent's alter ego,
Strength has little to do with hitting distances in golf.
There wasn't a point. What's the "point" of me drinking a cup of coffee at 6 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon?
have all sorts of criminal investigations and non analytical positives.
As to Hank, I think you are wrong, but whatever.
Not sure what you mean there. I think the current penalties are about right.
Weeeeeeeeeee are the champions, my friends
And Bonds is a loser, like Nieporent
Cos cheaters are jailbirds
And we are the champions,
of TEH WOOORRRRRRRRRRLD!!!!!1!!
But I don't care! So I've Piazza-fied myself or something? Who cares! The point is that this is a terrible day for Bonds and his hacktastic defenders. They are crushed!! Wicked people who cheat or knowingly defend cheaters because of tribalism, glibertarianism, or whatever bugfukk-insane reason, have been completely humiliated and it couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of victims!!! Baseball might be saved!!! Stupid and evil people have been trounced!!!
EAT IT, COBAGS!!! "I am laughing at the superior intellect"!!!
Bwahahahahahahahahahaha. It. IS. TO. LARF!!1!!
Yes, please, Kevin!!!
It is almost as good-tasting as the precious salty tears of Bonds' defenders! De-freakin-licious!!!!!
Bwahahahahahahahaha. ZOMG!!! ZM f-ing G!!! This is the greatest day in baseball history!!! Overload. Pleasure Overload!!1! Karma really does come back on cheaters and despicable human beings! The only thing that could be better news in this vein is if I heard that a socialist of Arab descent waterboarded David Neosporin before bulldozing his house!
And you also know that even the worst Yankees fans are like saints when compared to the goat-blowing, Nazi-snotzi, child molesters who comprise the vast majority of Mets Nation and the entirety of Cubs Nation.
<blockquote>Now that I have banned BL, please take notice of the weaselly way in which I related this news to the site -- which is part and parcel of my general theme as administrator; I'm Comrade Arbitrary and Capricious to you, mishka. By pure accident I have managed to remove, under the most specious reasoning, the main opposition to the ideological beliefs nearest to my heart. Now I, Commissar Furtado, do joyfully proclaim the menace expelled, so that we may return to the politburo's "free discussion" circle-jerk in which saber inevitably roolz and traditional inevitably droolz, posthaste, all under the exalted banner of Comrade James, Hero of the Saber Revolution!
PS - Thanks for the assist, Commissar Nieporent. Extra vodka rations for you, my friend. Swoboda swoboda!
