Why did Congress make the steroid & HGH issue about whether Roger Clemens or Brian McNamee was lying? Personally, I do not care. The reason is because, they are all lying in one way or another right down to MLB owners, management, players, unions and the commissioner. How else could the use of performance enhancement drugs become so wide spread and accepted by all.
Roger Clemens and Brian McNamee faced off in front of Congress yesterday in the He Said, He Said, battle over the use of steroids and HGH. Although I am for Congress getting involved in the issue of steroids & HGH in baseball and all sports for that matter, once again politicians have lost focus on the prime objective.
The steroids and HGH issue should not focus on two people, it should spot light the systemic problem and culture of performance enhancement drugs that permeates all sport from professional, college, high school and even grade school. That is the issue!!! That is what Congress should be focusing on, not a HE SAID … HE SAID, made for TV event.
Under oath and sometimes blistering questioning, Roger Clemens stuck to his story Wednesday. So did his chief accuser and former personal trainer, Brian McNamee.
“I haven’t reached any conclusions at this point,” said California Democrat Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
But, as ranking Republican Tom Davis of Virginia, put it: “Both can’t be telling the truth.”
