Bonds used steroids

BALCO founder Victor Conte told federal investigators on the day his lab was raided in September 2003 that Barry Bonds was a regular visitor and that he gave the Giants slugger steroids, according to a memorandum summarizing the interview conducted by the Internal Revenue Service agent who headed the investigation.

 

 

 

The memo was submitted by the U.S. Attorney's office in San Francisco late Friday along with other documents. The government was attempting to defend charges by attorneys for four defendants charged in the case alleging that their clients were subjected to illegal searches and coerced by federal investigators.

 

 

 

Special agent Jeff Novitzky's memo states that Conte told him Bonds was one of the players trainer Greg Anderson brought to Conte to obtain two forms of steroids -- the previously undetectable THG and a testosterone-based ointment.

 

 

 

In a separate interview, BALCO vice president James Valente also told investigators that Bonds used the two substances, but that Bonds did not like how the THG made him feel.

 

 

 

The typewritten memos summarizing the interviews cited other athletes who received steroids, including many already mentioned, such as baseball's Gary Sheffield, Benito Santiago and Jason Giambi, NFL players Bill Romanowski, Dana Stubblefield, Barrett Robbins and Johnnie Morton, and track stars Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery.

 

 

 

Conte, Anderson, Valente and track coach Remi Korchemny, are charged with distributing steroids, including the previously undetectable THG, to top athletes. Charges also include possession of human growth hormone, misbranding drugs with intent to defraud and money laundering. They have plead not guilty, and all four were unavailable for comment Friday night.

 

 

Anderson's attorney, Anna Ling, is seeking to suppress evidence and statements investigators said her client made. Ling cited alleged misconduct by Novitzky in filing search warrant affidavits, questioning of defendants and other matters related to the case.

 

 

Federal prosecutors countered Friday with their response, calling the arguments "meritless," adding "Anderson's statements are outright falsehoods."

 

 

 

Bonds, who like the other athletes has not been indicted, has said through his attorney that he has not used steroids.

 

 

 

Yep :confused

Nothing solid?

 

What are you blind? There is an insane amount of substance here that could very easily convict the guy in a court of law, people have been charged in criminal and civil cases with much less

 

 

"Court documents released late Friday offered detailed accounts of interviews by federal investigators in which BALCO executives allegedly admitted that Barry Bonds received and used steroids."

Bonds is a cheat, he's a racist, he's the worst thing to ever happen to baseball. At the very least we can all take joy that this a-hole won't be mentioned with greats like Mays and Aaron, who played the game the way it should have been played not cheat through it like he did.

All the evidence they have are some guys who have been charged with dealing steroids. Who's to say they aren't making sh** up to take the focus off of them??

 

Fact is, nobody knows. There is no physical evidence. He was tested during this past season. The results were never released to the public, which only means that he tested NEGATIVE. The only way it's released is if someone is tested positive for the second time.

 

Until he is actually charged with something, or suspended by Major League Baseball for it, let it go and just appreciate what he has done for the game. The guy works his a** off and the reason he may be an a**hole is because nobody gives him credit for that.

BALCO is accused of making designer steriods that were undetectable to MLB drugs tests, which until this season have been a complete joke.

 

So Anderson, Conte, and all those at BALCO are making this all up? Wow...do you even believe yourself?

 

BALCO has distributed steriods to athletes that is fact. Sheffield has admitted to using them as has Montgomery.
