OAFC BBS - All Topics: Archive: The Grilling of Fehr and Selig
I don't know who Congressman Christoper Shays is but I LOVE his grilling of the slimeball lawyer, Selig and Fehr. Maaybe the best thing to happen to this mess is the removal of both Selig and Fehr.
I just posted on another thread that I think Manfred is gross.
The word "sleazeball" comes to mind.
They tried to pin Selig down and say would he support a Zero Tolerance - one-strike and you are out - drug rule. He hemmed and hawwed and said he needed to think about it. A few minutes later, another congressman asked him if Baseball had a Zero Tolerence -one-strike and you are out - GAMBLING rule. He of course said they did.
Well in all seriousness a one strike and your out rule wouldn't be punishment that would fit the crime.
I am a big fan of Shays- he is of the Shays-Meehan Campraign Finance reform bill fame (The S-Mh is the house version of the McCain-Feingold CFR Bill) I am a big McCain/CFR junkie BTW...

And if they are going to actually try to do something about steroids then they should be subpoena athletes from ALL sports not just baseball.
I agree with the idea that ALL sports should adapt the International Olympic drug policy, as presented during the hearings. The only pro sport with a weaker steroid policy then MLB is the NHL. But, then again, is there still an NHL?
I also agree that ALL sports leagues ... right down to high school ... should adopt the International Olympic drug policy. It's the only one with teeth and all organized sports should be on the same page. If the feds want to do something positive in all this, it would be to pass legislation mandating it.
IOC policy is good because they have top of
Selig is such a low life piece of human wast man did that committe expose what a 2 faced liar and hypocrite this guy is, baseball is run by mobsters who dictate who they want as owners and lie to the public because they know who was juiced in the late 90's but it made baseball millions so they kept quiet.
Here, here, sactodavey. This reminds me of the movie 8 men out. Maybe the idiot owners will get rid of shitlig and replace him with someone like Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Sure they will.
I also got a gas out of Fehr, when Shays was grilling him Fehr brain cramped in mid thought/mid sentence and asked to have the question repeated.
Well, rocket, with regard to high school's not being able to afford such testing ... they really can't afford any. That is why congress asked whether mlb would be willing to contribute to the costs for the schools.
If all pro sports took a very hard line on performance enhancing drugs with a rigorous testing program, it would greatly reduce use by youngsters. When kids see the pros doing it and getting away with it, it is an invitation for them to do likewise. With a zero tolerance program, they would know and accept that getting juiced is not the way to get to the pros.
That is correct ballparkfrank, we really don't want to talk about our past either do we?!
