Mr. Bonds is a bit defensive
By now, I'm sure all the baseball fans out there have taken notice of Barry's tirade...um, I mean press conference. I heard Dave Kindred from the sporting news comment on this situation while I was listening to the radio today...I think he is right on when he suggests that most sports stars have a relationship with the fans through the media, and most manage that relationship much better than Bonds. Because Bonds will be in a Cold War with the media until he retires, he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to steroids...he doesn't have any goodwill with the press, so thus they don't try very hard to cast him in a positive light when it comes to these allegations.
