After reading the book, this doesn't surprise me one bit. The man has a huge ego and wanted his story told.

But then how would the journalists who in a way exposed these bad deeds just get punished for something that should be commended? Unless there's something I'm missing?

The grand jury testimony that they printed and based much of the book on was never publicly released and half the witnesses were testifying based on promises of immunity and sealing of all related court documents, which technically makes the authors accessories to the crime of their publication.

This has to be the worst kept secret in sports. Anyone who read Game of Shadows already knows enough about the glory-seeking character of Vic Conte to know that virtually the ENTIRE CASE against the Olympians and other athletes juicing at Balco was built on Conte talking big to the Feds and others corroborating his story.

The guy is a glory hound. He saw absolutely nothing wrong with the ILLEGAL substances he was providing his clients and it pissed him off that he wasn't getting the credit he felt he deserved for making them the world-class athletes they were.

Bonds would be sitting in jail RIGHT NOW if that slime ball "trainer" of his, Greg Anderson, wasn't doing all the jail sitting on his behalf. He has been in and out of jail repeatedly for contempt of court refusing to rat on Bonds.

It's too bad they don't allow waterboarding for slimeballs like this guy, because he DEFINITELY has the goods on Bonds.
:wink:

On a side not the writers if sentenced to 18 months go to prison. People go to jail if the commit a misdemeanor or are sentenced to one year or less. This is very annoying especially when news reporters or supposedly criminal tv shows such as law an order say someone is going to jail on a 5 year sentence. It is prison people not jail.
