Bonds' stooge, Anderson, weirds me out

Posted on: January 21, 2011 10:09 am
 

At first, Greg Anderson's loyalty to his childhood friend was impressive. Rather than testify against Barry Bonds in the federal steroids probe, he went to jail for him. Whatever you think of the facts of the case -- and it's fairly apparent that Bonds is the bad guy in all of this, which means Anderson is being loyal to a bad guy -- that loyalty was impressive.

Was, I say, because now it has become creepy.

Anderson is in prison now, and will stay in prison for weeks or months, as Bonds' trial unfolds. It begins today as Bonds' lawyers seek to have key evidence against Bonds thrown out because, without Anderson's testimony, the evidence is -- legally speaking -- garbage.

Meantime, Anderson sits in prison. Again. He has been in jail off and on since July 2006. He has a wife. Not sure if he has kids, but definitely he has a wife on the outside, waiting for him, while Anderson shows that the No. 1 person in his life, his top priority, is Barry Bonds. Not Mrs. Greg Anderson.

Creepy.

On top of that, the federal government is using its frustration with Anderson, and its legal muscle, to go after Anderson's wife and his mother-in-law in a tax probe. Say what you want about the government's strongarm tactics, but my point is this: Anderson isn't just leaving his wife alone -- he's putting her, and her mother, in legal jeopardy.

All because of Barry Bonds.

Creepy.

Doyel the only creep here is you,  you punk p_ss_ b_t_h.  Incase you havent noticed the bad guy here is not bonds its the government for trying to ruin innocent lives (Anderson's wife and mother in law) just to put a man in jail even though legally he has never tested positive for any steroids.  As for Anderson I admire this man there arent to many REAL FRIENDS in this world that would do this my hats go off to this loyal person.  Government's lie and deciets its peop
le all over the world its time for people to take a stand against these jerks.  Instead of trying to put Bonds in jail they should be putting the entire bush administration for decieving the people of the United States into a war that should never have been.  By the way I bet Doyel is a lonely guy with no friends he obviously doesnt know what true friendship is.  Even the story of jesus warns us about people like doyel aka Judis.

Thank God Doyle isnt my friend, he is the kind of guy who would sell you out for a shiny new nickel.

Seriously man? I am 100% sure you would not go to jail/prison for an extensive period of time for a friend. You are taking something from one extreme (going to jail for someone) to the opposite extreme (selling someone out for a nickle). The intelligence of some of these posters is amazing.

The average career length of an NFL player is closer to 3.5 years. 
Yeah ok... funny joke that was....  go look at some rosters.... and look up some players and you'll see very few STARTERS and EVERY DAY NFL PLAYERS play anywhere near 3.5 years.. they play a lot longer then that.  I don't care about the guys that got cut a day after signing a contract which by the way in the NFL is very common.  Those guys don't count ... has nothing to do with injuries.  They just aren't good enough.

But the average life expectancy for an NFL player is 54-58 (depending on the study).  It's only 52 for linemen.  In any case, it's obvious that the toll exacted on their bodies in addition to possible abuse of peds results in a significantly shorter life span than the average adult. 

For one, I'll repeat myself again. I guarantee you those averages include players that passed away that were murdered, overdosed, etc. 

As for the PED's ... well that's pretty simple.  Anybody with a brain knows that Ped's will knock some years off their life.  They do it knowingly so it's not football that leads to their early death, it's their stupidity.   It has nothing to do with the toll the game takes on their body or concusssions.... ped's are drugs... any death related to drugs should never count towards an average... drug use is a choice people make..  and if they are willing to die from it that's their problem

I did my research and for your information I was referring to medical studies of life expentancy, not how long their careere were. The only mumbo jumbo I hear is coming from you
WHAT? Life expectancy? You're telling me that THE AVERAGE NFL PLAYER DIES by the age of 54????  Hahahahahahahaa... thanks fo the laugh.

You must be talking about the average age of a male in Iraq... that happens to be about 50, but that make sense.  If you honestly believe the average NFL player dies at that age then you sir are nuts...

And by the way, any "research" or average you come up regarding life expectancy can't include former NFL players that died from murdered or from an overdose, alcoholism, etc.  And if they died of cancer, in most cases that would have nothing to do with playing football.

Unlike this writer, at least Anderson's job is apparently meaningful, and Anderson's job is simply to STFU,not talk toanyone about the case (like a possible Jailhouse Snitch) and simply eat this time up w a spoon, knife and Fork....

Anderson is being heldin Contempt,and if that sentence is over say 60 days, he is transferred to a MINIMUM SECURITY FACILITY, where its easy time, especially in a posh Federal Facility, lets say Anderson here does 6 Years when its all said and done,would 6 years be worth 6 Million in CASHIESH TO YOU ?? I for one would be communicating to the JUDGE in signLANGUAGE ZIPPING UP MY MOUTH,and tossing the key over my shoulder, or simply do the Sgt Schultz impression.... "I KNOW NUFFING".... Think about the absolute power some of thesejack booted Judges have, to toss you in Jail and hold you in contempt is unamerican...

I work in the legal profession and am in court quite often, the EGO'S Judges have in certain states where they arent elected blows awy that of any pro athlete, they put that black robe on and think that itprotects them w impunity.. I had a MunicipalCt Judge in NJ chewmeout in fronyt of about 50 defendants recently, it was determined within seconds that he was wrong yet he wouldnt apologize and was whispering to me,my lawyer seeing the blood starting to drip from my face ( from biting down on my tongue) basically pushed meout the side door after contempt was threatened.. Had he done that, revenge would have been exacted via a belacava and a Baseball Bat months down the road.. I am a former cop and currently own 2 Bail Bonds Agencies, investigations into residences dont take too long, but when a law abidding citizin who was 100% in the right gets talked too like a 4 year old and begets no apology, it surprises me meof these POLITICALLY CONNECTED, UNDER QAULIFIED BLOWHARDS dont go formorerides in the trunks of cars...

I assume you meant 5.4 years?  You listen to much to the union crap.... union mumbo jumbo.. those numbers are fake buddy.  Do a little of your own research and quit listening to the union nonesense..

tcool94 it's good to see a reader with an actual brain.  These men take a beating from Pop Warner on.  That is a lot of years leading up to a pro career, no matter how short or long.  And to have a life expectency approximately 20 years shorter than the national average...

Who cares about Barry Bonds' stooge, c'mon, really.  I have no idea who he even is and don't care.  Didn't even read the article, lol.

I'll tell you who weirds me out though: John Clayton, the decrepit looking ESPN analyst.  Definitely meant for radio.
