I’m almost numb to some of these suggestions that I would even use steroids …
“Let me be clear, the answer is no. I did not use steroids, or human growth hormone and I’ve never done so,” Clemens said. “I did not provide Brian McNamee with any drugs to inject in to my body. Brian McNamee did not inject steroids or Human Growth Hormones into my body either when I played in Toronto for the Blue Jays or the New York Yankees. This report is simply not true.” Clemens added that he will sit down with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes and answer his questions. Clemens says he is angry and that the charges are “hurtful.” He says he is thankful for his talent in his career and blessings in the spirit of the holiday.
George Mitchell, a director of the Boston Red Sox and a former Senate majority leader, wrote in his report that former Toronto and New York Yankees strength coach Brian McNamee said he injected Clemens with steroids in 1998 while with the Blue Jays, and in 2000 and 2001 while with the Yankees. Brian McNamee also claimed he injected Roger Clemens with Human Growth Hormone in 2000.
Brian McNamee is a sports trainer, most notably formerly employed by Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, and Chuck Knoblauch. A former strength coach for the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays, McNamee allegedly helped players acquire performance-enhancing drugs, including steroids, amphetamines and human growth hormone. McNamee told the Mitchell Commission that he began injecting Roger Clemens with steroids in 1998, and that he continued to provide steroids through 2001.
In 2006, a poll of 32 ESPN analysts named Clemens the greatest living pitcher. Clemens has seven Cy Young Awards, two more than any other pitcher.
Comment/responses weigh in negatively for the seven-time Cy Young winner.
A series of comment responses accuse Clemens of lying …
“He is a huge taint.”
You are a LIAR
You are a CHEATER
You should be BANNED FOR LIFE!!!
You will forever be known as Fraudger Clemens.
Shame really. Just tell the truth
Yes, he’s gifted and deserves all the money he can get, but he also deserves all the ridicule if he cheated.
Why did Roger write checks then? How does he explained the canceled checks?
Roger has seen how Bonds keeps up the denial and he’s going to use the same approach. Deny..deny…deny (also used by Bill Clinton and Martha Stewert..but Bill and Martha got caught).
Some are supportive …
I know this whole incident sucks for you. According to your video, it is undeserved. I tend to agree that the repercussions from this is undeserved. I support you and your family through this. I am not a Red Sox or Yankees fan. I think the baseball powers that be (the commish and all the sports writers) need to get down off their high horse and look in the mirror.
