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

      Just got Home from there my self. Great show some pretty good deals going on. Was really intrigued by Bass Khang Rods purchased one of his custom walleye rods. Had a great time reconnecting with some old buds in the ice fishing industry.

      I would like to hit big water for divers a time or two yet

      Getting to the end of the line here in a hurry.  What a bummer of a close out from central going north.  I know a few people who crushed em here and there but most have experienced a mediocre season overall.   Anyone still out, and on birds?  There should still be some good fields going on.   I just popped the latest wood duck I think I’ve ever seen.  A young bird too so I can’t give it credit for being a Wiley old timer resisting the flight through the gauntlet.

      Great expo, lots of great new product, not as crowded as weekends, quick and easy to talk with vendors and some decent prices.

      Oddly enough.... I know that spot.  Have done really well in the fall, fishing the saddle between the two pieces of structure😉

      Cool. If you wind up going with either, or both, be sure to report back on how the accommodations were (and the fishing but that's usually not in their control).
    • CigarGuy
      Bassbouncer....Not to change the subject, neighbor and I checked out your ice house you're selling. Looks nice. Ron L is my neighbor, talk him into buying it🙂. Btw, do you know how much it weighs? What do you pull it with out on the lake?

      I've got a trip scheduled to Sunset Lodge on the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods in January.  We signed up to fish MN one day for walleyes and on the Ontario side one day for crappies.  This is a trip we've done for the past two years.  The walleye fishing has been so-so but the crappie fishing has been very good in the past.  I just noticed that Sunset's website no longer mentions the MN/Ontario combo package that was there when I made the reservation in October, so I called Sunset to see what was going on.  Samantha, the manager, is not there now since the resort is shut down between seasons, and the person I talked with was vague.  The explanation varied between "crappie fishing has not been that good in the past" to "we're not sure what Ontario is doing."  She assured me that Sam would get back to me in the next couple weeks and I shouldn't worry about it, but since I organized the trip on the premise of the walleye/crappie combo I'd like to know what is going on.  Is anyone aware of any changes for this ice fishing season regarding non-residents fishing in Ontario?  Is this a remote border crossing issue?  Or is this just a resort decision?
    • stjoeguy
      Thank you for all the recommendations.  I'm now looking into Red Lake Remote and Kabetogama Outdoors.
