    Hockey and soccer aren't all that clean either... although soccer is probably cleaner than most due to a multitude of oversight agencies, far more stringent penalties, and, probably at least in part, much more developed use of "legal" drugs, including anti-inflammatories and certain prescription drugs including various ADD medications.

    Would his name be out there if he were a Yankee?

    You're still misunderstanding.

    What I think he was saying was that the agreement between union and the league was that the data would be collected, samples taken and tested and then immediately destroyed. All records would also be destroyed of the testing and results.

    The subpoenas by the feds weren't until last year or the year before. So there were 3-4 years there where the data still existed, but pursuant to the agreement, should have been destroyed.

    So, if the agreement had been followed, when the Feds came knocking, they wouldn't have the data to hand over.

    Ok, let me put it to you this way :

    Do you honestly believe that no well known Red Sox have ever used PED's?
    Ever?

    So far we have had Giambi, Pettitte, Clemens, and now A-Rod branded as PED users but not one single Red Sox player.

    If you believe that then I weep for you as well.

    Re: A-Rod tested positive for steroids

    The fact that Arod's name is out there and the other 103 aren't is a joke. MLB and the Feds are both pathetic organizations.

    Re: A-Rod tested positive for steroids

    If more tangible evidence comes out that A-Rod used at one point or another during the time he was with the Yankees, I hope that they sue. This is just going to make my life more miserable. People, like me, who don't live in NY see the vast majority of games away, and deal with their fans telling me how much the Yankees suck, its now another thing im going to deal with at EVERY game I go to.

    Re: A-Rod tested positive for steroids

    I just hope the Yankee fanbase realizes that it's us against the world. Regardless of your personal feelings towards A-Rod, we should give him a standing ovation every AB to let everyone know we don't give a damn about their bullsh*t. Now is not the time to be torn apart, we need to stand together and give the middle finger to the rest of the baseball world.

    All you have to do is look at early pictures of ARod when he was a thin skinny kid, compared to pictures in 2003 to know that ARod is guilty.
    Pardon, for us.

    You were misunderstanding my point. I asked to see a copy of the agreement because I do not know what it said. If it said the samples were to be destroyed immediately after the data was collected, then fine -- MLB breached the contract. But if there was no language to that effect, then MLB did nothing wrong. They abided by the agreement to keep the names anonymous, but the federal government eventually subpoenaed the records. Not much MLB can do after the fact.

    That's why ITL is weak now. The Teixeria thread was full of people who had been with the site either for a week with 10,000 posts or 3 years with 4 posts.
