Why do you think baseball is increasing in popularity in this era of cheating? Baseball is experiencing record attendance and record revenues in this era of steroid cheats. Why do you think that is? And what does this say about the morality and integrity of baseball fans? And the sport itself? And don't say it hasn't been proven yet, the evidence is now overwhelming. I for one will never watch another baseball game live or on TV and am disgusted that Americans still idolize these LOSERS.

I moved this thread to the "Outside New Jersey - General Discussion" forum since it really doesn't have anything to do with New Jersey, especially since we don't even have a major league baseball team.

To comment on your post though. I for one do not idolize anyone. Even with the Devils - it's not the players that matter to me - it's the team. If they were to move out of NJ, I would no longer follow them or care about the players. Having said that, there are cheaters in all fields of work, whether it is cops, politicians, store clerks etc. The problem is that people seem to not think that cheating isn't that wrong and that the end result is all that matters. It's not just a baseball problem, or an American problem - it's worldwide.

There are also many people who don't cheat - including many baseball players, and they should not be thrown into the same group as the cheaters.

I love the Phillies and go to about 10 games a year.

They are "clean".

As a joke I am working on an "all steroids" bobblehead team. I have started it with Roger Clemens as number 22 in a Yankee uniform.

Think I can field an all Yankees steroids team?

Well bioshocker said it. If they think it sucks, it will indeed suck for them. Theres no arguing over that.

Bioshocker will certainly fall in the group of players who will not buy the game. Am I right? I mean... it sucks.
