    Bonds blockbuster: ‘The Clear’ was legal

    Barry Bonds might walk.

    It could explain why Barry Bonds’ attorneys believe the grand jury questions to him were impossibly vague and why the focus of the BALCO case veered from prosecuting distributors of illegal anabolic steroids and money launderers to catching world-class athletes lying about drug use.

    Taking the Clear – the star drug of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative – was not a crime, according to expert testimony included in grand jury documents.

    Not only was the performance-enhancing drug tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) not specifically banned when athletes squirted “The Clear” under their tongues to gain an edge, the testimony also indicates that the drug wasn’t categorized by the Justice Department as a steroid until January 2005, long after the drug laboratory had been shuttered.

    It would just bounce off his chest. SO many muscles.

    Its great to know that he cheated legally....
    whatever.....
    I think everyone, including he, knew that his performance was being enhanced by this substance....whether it had a name yet or not.
    The dumbest part of it all was that he was considered one of the best of ALL TIME without it....but that wasnt enough for his enlarged hat size.
    Now he will likely be a "question mark" hall of famer.
    Living near the bay area....I get sick and tired of all of the Bonds apologist.
    Read "Game of Shadows".....
    Bonds had cycling schedules that included C (for Clear)....the same type of schedule that any other ROID user would keep to maximize the effectiveness of the Clear.
    Call it a DUCK if you want to Barroid.....we all know that you knew exactly WHAT IT WAS!

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.
