    That is fine if Parker wants to give his opinion and say "I think Aaron should be there"...I just take issue with him calling the man a coward. The guy deserves more respect than this. Go pick on PacMan or Alec Baldwin if you want to do this junk, not someone who is such a hero and doesn't deserve it.

    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

    Ive met him a couple of times, he is an OK guy, but he is the worst sports columnist around. The only time I read his stuff is when someone posts one of his ridiculous columns on the board. After re-reading the column, I found this section to be comical.....

    "Still, Aaron says he will notbe there when he drops to No. 2.

    Why? Who knows. Or more like, we all know.

    It comes down to accusations Bonds used steroids, even though the slugger hasn't been found guilty."

    What's Aaron's problem?


    OJ wasnt found guilty either Rob, despite overwhelming evidence...... Read Game of Shadows, check the legal documents, see how most guys surrounding Bonds are either in jail or just got out of jail, etc........besides the point I made earlier, 99% of people in baseball think the guy is a complete and total jerk.

    It is not hank Aarons style to come out and accuse anybody. He has true class. He has made his stand by staying away. Action speaks louder than words.

    What showed Parker's true colours for me was this line:

    aka... It isn't fair to me and other hack reporters.....

    That just screams to me that Rob is whining for a story, and since he can't get the story he really wants to write, he's going to bash the guy who won't give it to him, Aaron.

    I think Hank is doing the right thing. Very simply, he's doing the only thing he can do.

    Can he come out and say Barry took roids without proof? No.

    Can he go to the games and face the hundreds of reporters who will all ask the same thing 'do you think barry did it clean?' with the off chance that someone will misinterpret what he says because some writer wants some national pub?

    Its going to be a media circus when Barry nears it, and it would be great fodder if Hank did come out and say something that would be repeated ad nauseum for every media outlet to hash and rehash for the rest of the season.

    I believe Hank is following the old axiom - if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

    Too bad Rob Parker is too dumb to follow that.
    Amen! preach the Good News!!!!

    Hey,

    Leave Drew out of this.Drew has the balls to complain about the Lions or any other organization and then go into the locker and meet face to face with them.
    Parker is to busy with his head up Dumars ass to even think.

    Rob Parker couldn't carry Hank Aarons lunch, plain and simple. Hank Aaron is all class, Parker is all a$$.

    They have... Rob goes to bristol for cold pizza and Drew goes to LA for Rome.

    Look... I it is pretty simple. Does Aaron have to be there? No. Should he... yes. He did not have anything to do with any of the steroids mess, but it is the right thing to do. Until the record is tossed as being bunk. But I will say this, Selig better be their for every swing. He got rich off of the steroid era and basically created this mess. And until it is cleaned up and/or he retires, he should be out there everyday taking his whippings.
    As for our local boy Wab Parker, I would be very careful who you are calling a coward. This man went through more adversity than you could ever imagine. And I am not even talking about on the field...I am talking about straight up worring if your family is going to make it home every night.
    Wab is on the edge. He has basically no strings holding him in this town now and ESPN is just teetering on whether or not to make this guy a semi permanent part of their "family". He is just looking to push himself over the edge. He thinks going the way of whitlock and Lebo-tard will make him look edgy enough.
    It is just real sad that he has to try to pull another man down just for him to get up.

    I truly HATE Rob Parker but I do agree with him on this matter. I'm not calling Hank a coward but I think he should go and for most of the reasons that Parker wrote about.
    They say 'the truth
    shall come to the light.'
    So everybody grab your shades
    cuz your boy's that bright!
