Sorry, the title is a little misleading. They have decided to indict him but haven't atually done it yet. They just said it'll be done in the next few days.

Why the shit is the US congress investigating steroid use. I am adamantly against the use of steroids in professional sports but do they not have better things to do with their time?

Oil spill...war...government corruption...mounting gov debt...poverty...poor education system...

WASHINGTON Seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of lying to Congress about
whether he used steroids or human growth hormone.

When asked for a plea by U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton, the retired Major League Baseball pitcher said in a clear voice: "Not guilty, your honor."

Clemens and another of baseball's premier stars sullied by steroid accusations, all-time home run leader Barry Bonds, could both begin their day in court next spring, turning the spotlight back on major league baseball's long-running drug scandal just as it opens the 2011 season.

Wearing a dark jacket, brown pants and tie, Clemens appeared in federal court only a few blocks from where he swore under oath to a House committee in 2008 that he had not used performance-enhancing drugs.

Clemens, who pitched for the Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, New York Yankees and Houston Astros, got into a van and left shortly after his plea without speaking to the throngs of reporters and television cameras waiting outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Courthouse.

Federal prosecutors didn't believe Clemens' testimony to Congress, and they subsequently charged him with making false statements, perjury and obstruction of Congress.

The 48-year-old baseball star had vowed all along to fight the charges.

After hearing Clemens' plea, Walton set an April 5 date for choosing a jury. That would be four days after Opening Day of the 2011 major league baseball season and two weeks after the scheduled start of Bonds' trial on charges of lying to a federal grand jury when he said he never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs.

was listening to the FAN today and they did an neat spot where they played a series of interviews and soundbites throughout the whole Clemens saga. It's interesting to say the least. and Roger is pretty screwed. Funny because it's all, 100% his own doing.

DVS 09-09-2010 02:41 PM

Honestly, I don't care if Roger Lied to Congress. Those guys lie to the American public every chance they get.

TORONTO -- Police searched the offices of the Toronto Blue Jays and turned over documents in connection with the perjury case against seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens.

Two officers executed the search in June and assisted the U.S. Justice Department by forwarding the two boxes they obtained, police spokesman Const. Tony Vella said Thursday.

Vella called it a U.S. investigation and declined further comment. He said he could not say if they obtained medical records. Vella said the Blue Jays cooperated with the court order.

hey i wonder if this will come back to hurt the blue jays at all?... you know info that they maybe knew he was on whatever performance enhancer. If the evidence that i assume they are looking for is there, then it can't look good on the organization. although I guess most of the management have moved elsewhere since those days.
