"Is Barry Bonds a victim?"
"The feds are crossing the line going after a guy using six-year-old urine samples."
Those were some of the talking points this afternoon on some sportstalk radio shows in reaction to his positive steroid test coming to light. Are you buying it?
Much of what Bonds is experiencing is a result of his behavior. The media and fans have been much more accepting of alleged cheaters like Shane Mosley, Jason Giambi and Shawne Merriman. Why? Because they're likable guys and haven't gone out of the their way to piss people off or mistreat them.
You'd have to think Bonds has learned his lesson and turned over a new leaf, right? Maybe not. Check out this video. Elie Seckbach must speak with at least 15 different people at the Affliction event and the only guy who was a jackass is Bonds. Watch the video (around the 2:25 mark):
Seckbach spoke with Milton Bradley, Shayna Baszler, Freddie Roach, Brad Penny, Chris Horodecki and a ton of fighters, none of them were rude. Thanks Barry for staying true to yourself!
