I hope this kid's friends do the right thing and never let him enjoy anything the red sox do ever again because he's not a real fan.

I understand that people should be heavily critical of Braun cause he's a phony. But seriously, the extent of the public "raking through the coals" is a little over the top.

Every PED user denies it, i feel like we should be pretty numb to all of this after the Clemens/Bonds/Sosa crap.

Don't you remember his smug reaction when he thought he got away with it on a technicality?

Sure, I thought it was bogus for him to implicate the carrier....but again, it's no different from the BS we get from Clemens and Arod.

I have and will always hate those two guys, and I don't think its the same. They've taken the whole situation seriously.

His statement is so weak too... "anyone I may have disappointed" and "I now realize I made a mistake." Gimme a break.

If someone is going to come clean they just need to say, "I did it because I wanted to get an advantage. I shouldn't have done it and I'm sorry I lied to everyone."

Arod's statement was very similar, and I'm interested to see what he says after this. He's already had one apology and messed it up, so I'm sure he'll mess it up again.

Clemens has yet to admit he did it. I'm sure he did, but he has yet to admit like the other two.

I don't know...I guess to me there are so many guys like Pujols that obvioulsy cheated, but haven't gotten caught. So Braun gets caught and we all need to act like, "OMG CHEATER..LOOK LOOK CHEATER, AND LOOK AT HIM DENYING IT". I'm just not going to get worked up about it and want to go rehash how much of a phony he is cause he's on tape lying.

Yeah, I get that. We'll never know everyone who cheated and it would be great to just be done with the whole mess. I just hate it when they strong denials are followed by such weak admissions.

Of course he denied it. As he should have till they proved it. Coming out on a technicality and saying things like "the truth prevailed" and saying that he's a victim of a process that broke down and failed is BS.

I surprised that he didn't say "mistakes were made."

Well, I guess it bothered me more with Clemens because of how people were touting his late career success to "hard work". I remember some fat obnoxious loud mouth yankee fan at my last office spouting off about how hard his work outs are (she probably some some BS footage of him on ESPN doing situps).

The technicality Braun got off on was BS and it was obvious he was guilty. It's a garbage appeal process that let him get off on that, he could have spouted off whatever during that silly interview, every reasonable person knew it was BS.

Yeah, you have to account for how much you hate the Yankees players just because of their fans. :pop:

So how long until the courier, that Braun badmouthed, files a lawsuit against Braun for slander?

I doubt he would win. The ruling was that the sample was improperly handled. I don't see how this could change the ruling. The mishandling of the sample holds true irrespective of accuracy of the result

Braun strongly implied that the guy had doctored the sample. His legal people went about saying the guy didn't handle the sample properly, but Braun's statements directly about the guy stated that there was something suspicious about what happened and then indirectly he flat out said he was innocent. I don't know if thats enough to go after him for slander though.

Not shocking that Rodgers, a first class jackwagon, defended Braun.
