    if A-Rod (A-Roid?) had used steroids i would have expected him to get a lot more "huge" like Bonds of McGwire

    This was a great list. Glad to see someone calling out all the players for using 'roids.

    GREAT LIST. THE TOP THREE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE BASEBALL PLAYERS BECAUSE YOU HAVE AT #1 THE BEST PITCHER OF ALL TIME, THEN AT #2 SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE GREATEST BATTER OF ALL TIME B. BONDS AND AT #3 THE(COULD HAVE BEEN THE GREATEST BATTER OF ALL TIME A ROID)

    Good point Larry. The entire list could have been baseball players, but I wanted to show that steroids are a problem in all sports. I would have been happy with A-Fraud, Bonds, or Clemens topping the list.

    You know, the most sports from above are only played in the United States. How can you say that they are the top ten? nobody ever heard of Roger Clemens for instance. And beside NBA, nothing is interesting for the rest of the world. Most of them have no idea what MLB means.

    Roger Clemens is not regarded as the best pitcher ever. . .at least not by anyone who knows baseball

    Roger Clemens, the best pitcher of all time? I think not. Look at Warren Spahn, more wins, fewer seasons on a consistently bad team. I think that part of Clemens' stats were helped by the teams he played for, the Yankees in particular. I will give him some credit for having half as many complete games a Spahn. I would hardly say that he is the best there ever was, although I would call him one of the better pitchers lately.

    But there are others, Nolan Ryan comes to mind, a full 1,000 Ks more than Clemens.

    Let me see if I can put this down right without anybody misunderstanding me…Why is it that people get so head over heels mad angry about baseball players using steroids WHEN IT WAS LEGAL. I understand the issue of steroids being bad for you in the end. But it still remains that there wasn't even a mention of steroid use until I believe '94 (whenever it was it was in the 90's), but even that was an implication, something that can never be binding. It wasn't explicitly illegal until 2004. In my opinion the use of steroids in that time was nothing different than the use of greenies in the 80's and early 90's.

    Also, somebody mentioned above a tendency of steroids to make somebody big. A-Rod did get bigger looking at his rookie card and a current picture. But steroids dont necessarily make you bigger or buffer.

    One more thing, I try to figure out why people seem to think that steroids are so effective in making a player better. If they aren't used correctly they can actually be very inhibitive in a player's performance. You never want extreme upper body strength in baseball, you want extreme strength in your core and lower body; you want your muscles that pivot your body at your waist to get stronger. Either way, you still have to hit the ball, you still have to catch the ball, you still have to throw the ball. Most of baseball is mental, seeing, reacting. larger muscles inhibit quick reactions.

    Personally I think the focus needs to head over to the NFL and all of the conduct issues with some of its players, that would seem to be the real damaging influence on the youth of America.

    What about the (un-named) ten tennis players that the BBC exposed as having failed tests for steroids? The ATP exonerated them and kept it quiet. Or Agassi and meth? Would playing tennis that be performance enhancing or just bizarre?

    And to A6m4- The evidence that steroids improvement performance in baseball is here for all to see…these are amongst the most massive names and most succesful players of all-time. You can quibble about whether they are the absolute best, but the whole sport is devalued when these often fatal drugs are being routinely taken by average players who then become mega-stars.

    Most of baseball may well be mental, but the small advantages given by steriods obviously make a massive difference. The obvious answer is to make steriods legal in baseball, at least then we would have a level playing field with everyone equally drugged up and given a chance to showcase their natural skills. And if they drop dead prematurely, then who cares as long as they have entertained us?

    Well, I just dont care. It is not a crime as far as i know it. It is not like he is the only one with access to it. it is open to ANYONE WHO WANTS IT.

    Informative list. Love seeing what Congress had been wasting so much time with instead of actually passing laws that could, I don’t know, help the people who put them in office? They all (Congress) need to serve jail time for WASTING MONEY. Who cares who is using steroids in sports?

    Steroid abusers should be permanently banned from their sport. They are cheaters and liars that are breaking the law.

    Anabolic Steroids when used in sports can be considered as cheating. Is it still cheating when all the players are using Steroids? Lets get real people, Jose Canseco had a lot of courage when he admitted to steroid use. Here is a man admitting to the use of illegal substances. His reason? Everyone else is also using them. Steroids have positive effects on the male body especially when used by males with a low level of natural Testosterone production. I think it would be fair to consider both the positive and negatives of Steroid use.
