Re: Should Barry Bonds be allowed in the Hall of Fame?
Wow, this ellicited some good feedback. First off, let me clear up my stance...I am completely against using steroids, and those that use them should be punished to the fullest. Please read the entire post above before flying off the handle. The things my friend said about not blaming them for having the discipline to do whatever they need to excell in their sport was said with much sarcasm. Of course you can blame them. And no it's not right to cheat. I was talking about now, everyone has the chance to use them, thanks for pointing that out Ianbrown.
How can we begin to compare records set many decades ago with today. New technologies, different rules, different life styles...any record broken today is almost dishonoring to the great players. Just think of the medical improvements available to players today. No, I don't think Bonds should be in the Hall of Fame, because I "think" he used steroids. But until they prove he used them without a shadow of a doubt, it's wrong to keep him from something that would put anyone in the hall of fame.
