Oof, while I loathe the NCAA, I'm not sure I agree that where that is heading is good for college athletics. Maybe football, but I couldn't disagree more with his comments on basketball.

I believe at this point, I'm just going to assume that all Pro Athletes are taking PED's.

That way, I don't think any of them are clean, and try to believe the bullshit. Braun is most definitely the MLB's Armstrong. I wish that there was a way that the brewers could dump his contract.

And the sample collector should sue Braun.

So all the reports out of the Brewers camp is that Braun lied to all of his teammates and that everyone hates him now as they put themselves on the line for him.

Assuming that is true can Braun win the lockerroom back?

I'm Curoius about a few things.I haven't researched too much into it.

Could MLB create a provision where Contracts are not guaranteed in case of positive tests for PED'S?
And if they could, Would it serve as a deterrent?

I mean... I don't see it doing much in Football, but Football contracts are already not guaranteed money. If the one thing that could void an MLB Contract was a PED Suspension, would it matter? Would it make them think twice about using?

Steve Phillips was talking about that on the radio this morning, and it sounds like the owners are mulling it over.

The players association would have to agree and that is not a given, although it does sound like they are finally coming around to common sense on this issue.

The idea has some merit because current punishment does not properly address the risk versus the reward ratio for PED use.

Melky Cabrera laughs at the punishment given by MLB.

Indeed, going from average to all star is quite a boost to the bottom line.

His coach should have kept him muzzled.
