I totally agree with this article. That Sports Illustrated "revelation" was totally irresponsible, those tests were taken in strict confidence and those players were men enough to commit to them at that time knowing or unknowing if they were "positive" or "negative" and that they would not be revealed to the public. Those were the times when the world of Professional Sports began to realize there was a problem. The American public knowing or unknowing take some form of steroid laced medication everyday maybe not to "enhance our performance" but to help us live a better life. These "Tests" were taken to help the Sport of Baseball clean it's self up from these things and I truly believe that it has helped and that the uses of these drugs is at a very minimum level at best and that most of those players stopped when they realized they were putting themselves and the game of Baseball at risk of being tarnished.
I, for one, would love to see that Sports Illustrated reporter get HER ass canned never to be published again for HER "holyer then thou" reporting and I'd like to see the kid that took the picture of Michael Phelps at that party with their cell phone and spread to kingdom come get his ass kicked out of that fraternity. These are the ones at fault for invading the privacy of these exceptional Athletes lives, they are incredible people but the are PEOPLE just like the rest of us and deserve that respect.
