Ok, im from the Milwaukee area so im a little biased. I was wondering how people outside the state see Ryan Braun. I do believe hes guilty, but I dont think he should be banned for life like I have been reading on message boards. Thoughts?

Given the Brewers' season was pretty much lost, he kind of gets off without much penalty, aside from the loss of pay. All today's events do is confirm he is a cheater. He probably should have gotten a longer suspension, but I'm fine with 65 games.

Really waiting to see what happens to A-Rod and the others involved in this scandal.

I'm still wondering why Bonds and McGwire don't get asterisks on their records. Roger Maris got one and he hit 61 HR honestly. If steroid use is so reprehensible, delete the steroid-enhanced records.

OTOH, athletes throughout the ages have used every means necessary to get an edge. Even in ancient Greece we have historical records of various mixtures Olympians used to gain a competitive edge. Perhaps it's just human nature and probably wishful thinking, airy-fairy, to believe there's any virtue in depending solely on genetics and training.

Yeah I'm surprised they didn't push for a longer suspension. As for A-Rod, I think he gets the hammer. He admitted using, then got caught using again. My guess is they go for something over 100 games.
