The sad thing is, that he will forever have steroids mentioned with his MVP season from some stupid fans.

So was he proven he wasn't on the PEDS?

Not at all.

His specimen was not sent in soon enough (according to policy)

He got off on a technicality.

Is it fair that one player gets to cheat because of a technicality? either make him serve the due suspension, or just make PED's legal.

There were some interesting things said when he made his statement about being clear, he was honest about everything including his personal life, that pretty much sums that up, there were rumors that his STD medication was the reason he T-level were so high, was a very interesting story from start to finish

Another black eye to Baseball.

He admitted guilt and this is a bad precedent to go forward with.

He should be serving the 50 days.

IMO

He admitted guilt? I haven't seen or heard him do anything but profess his complete innocence.

When I read the articles about him being cleared it said the panel that ruled on the issue specifically didn't give a reason for their decision. It didn't say whether there was an issue in how the samples were handled or tested or in the time frame in which they were tested and it didn't say anything about any possible STD medication.

This has absolutely nothing to do with Braun being cleared.

I'm pretty sure he has claimed innocence this whole time. I believe what is going to come out is that the STD medication rumor is true. If that's the case, we need to move on, and drop this Braun steroid talk. It's MLB's fault this was overturned in the first place. If they want the players to follow the rules, they should to.

I may have misquoted that, for that I apolagize.

I just heard he offered to take a DNA test to prove his innocence that the sample wasn't his, then when MLB was contemplating that his lawyer and Ryan did a very quick reversal.

Who knows, but apparently he is having a news conference here shortly.

I will say MLB did drop the ball(no pun intended) on the process of the test and retention/transfer of the sample.

I just read the article on ESPN about Braun. Sounds like during the arbitration hearing he didn't dispute the science of the test but instead the chain of custody/timeframe for delivering the sample.

Also from how he was talking about being honest about his personal life throughout the investigation it really sounds like he had to tell them about some sort of embarassing situation that would have caused a false positive (STD medication for example). I'm sure he doesn't want those details to get to the media.

I heard the whole thing took so long because a law suit was filed by Braun's folks for breach of medical confidentiality rights by the testing facility blatantly outing a test that is suppose to be confidential.

Medical records are a big deal these days.

I see Braun getting some serious CASH from the testing agency.

As is in most decisions based on legality there is a difference between innocent and not guilty. If indeed Braun had to be administered a medication for an STD there is a provision in baseball testing regs that he notify and have a medical form filled out to reflect possible problems resulting from taking this medication. he did not fill out and receive medical clearance to take that medication. I do agree that baseball is responsible for this testing screw upand this problem needs to be addressed by baseball and not Braun.

Key word, used to own. Do you really think Bud wants this type of negative media on the MLB testing process. Come on.

Again there is no conflict of interest here, no story.

like when he used to own the brewers while the twins were gonna be contracted. the biggest beneficiary out of that whole deal would've been the brewers expanding their market 10 fold.

baseball is no stranger to bad press during bud's tenure.

Remind me again why Pete Rose was banned FOR LIFE?

Because it was concluded that he bet on MLB baseball games which is forbidden and carries a lifetime ban. And to make matters worse and the reason he is not in the hall today is he repeatably lied time and time again when all he had to do was admit he bet on baseball.

In a nutshell his stubborn EGO was just to big to say I did it and I'm sorry. In which in todays world means you get a 2nd chance. smirk

      It's called Cutaneous fibroma.

      Has anyone been out lately? Just curious how the fishing has been and how much ice is out there? I’ve been out a couple times so far on a smaller lake near by vermilion. I had 5 to 7 inches consistently everywhere I checked. 
    • Rick
      I've used both and haven't seen a significant advantage for either. So for ice fishing with plastics it's usually not scented.   Just trying to hold the rod still in your hand can give the plastic enough realism/movement to cause a curious fish to inhale it.
    • eyeguy 54
      Thanks for letting us know that.  Lol good ole joke

      On the south end...  The big lake is ice covered with scattered areas of open water.  We have a nice start to making ice so when colder weather hits, things will get locked up fairly quickly.  Mother Nature gave us a cold blast to get things started but with milder temps this week, things are on hold.  There is some spearing taking place for pike this week on back bays such as Bostic Bay and Zippel Bay.  Resorts have spear houses available.  Regardless of where you fish, work through a resort for safety. On the Rainy River...   Most areas of the river are covered with a thin layer of ice with some areas of open water.  There is no traffic on the river at this time while ice is forming.  Extra caution is always needed with current and this year the current is stronger than most years.  Back bays of the river are also iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming nicely throughout the Angle.  Locals have been out monitoring ice conditions and progress is being made, but no ice travel is recommended yet.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      You guys...  🙄 This is like the old joke: Ole went down to the public swmming beach at the local fishing hole.  He hoped to impress Lena and all her fine lady friends by wearing his tight swim trunks that showed off his "manliness."   Lars politely warned Ole that he didn't exactly have much to show off; Lars recommended perhaps Ole should tuck a potato into his Speedo.  Ole did.  After strutting around, he was extremely disappointed:  Lena and her lady-friends only point and laugh/giggle/snort and roll their eyes... Ole asked Lars, "what's the deal?"  Lars told Ole, "next time, try tucking the potato in the front."   Sorry to break it to you fellas, but a deer's anatomy isn't like ours.  The ladies keep their mammaries in a different location, ya understand...

      Odd, because on another thread subject you said this? 😏   What Kind Of Bird Is This??? Clavilux replied to Dan85's topic in MN Pheasant Hunting-Grouse-Dove-Partridge Tough to figure out what exactly it is. Looking forward to see the opinions of others.
