I could list 5 pages of players that were great that have never acted like Bonds does towards the public or the media.
The unimaginable pedastal was created by Bonds when he decided to go crazy with HGH and steroids, growing twice the size he was, and then suddenly out of nowhere hitting 73 homeruns. Then when people question him about it, he points fingers and blames it on everyone else but himself.
When kids look up to someone like Bonds and they start dying from using steroids, then it's time to look closer at what these players are doing. And that's what's happening, although I think Congress should stay out of it. At the same time, if the owners and Bud Selig are going to try and sweep it under the rug, then they don't have much choice.
Bonds made his bed, not the media.
