I would almost guarantee that 95% of the members of this cafe go through more hardships on a daily basis than Barry Bonds goes through in a week, so I could care less what he and his family have gone through in their twelve mansions. I don't understand what's so hard to get about people hating Barry Bonds because he is just a prick.

There's more to life than money. I don't think any of us know what he's going through, or whether it's deserved or not. I know being an athlete - and one of the best ever to boot - has it's baggage but it doesn't mean he deserves all that's happened to him. He has been quite a jerk though (I probably would be too if I was hounded like he is).

How many of you are offended by all the hatemongers who boo and insult Kobe Bryant wherever he goes?

YANKS 04, i have to ask. Why do you say corked bats and spitballs are ok, yet roids are not? Cheating is cheating. There is no good or bad cheating. How you cheat, why you cheat, the results of your cheating are moot. Cheating of any kind is cheating.

To the comment on Bonds cheating on his wife. If you listen to players talk, there are few non cheating guys in the bigs. I'm not condoning it, just merely pointing out a fact, most of the public heros do some wrong things. Some guy named Jordan had a mistress. Yet he is and was loved. Be like Mike.

Please..guys like Arod, Jeter, Sosa (until recently), Schilling, H. Matsui, Cal Ripken, Piazza and others have been media hounded just as much if not more at times ove rthe years. And while some may have had some issues and some (like Schilling) not as universally liked as others NO ONE outside of Pedro maybe and Albert Belle in recent years past is as throughly and completely as despised as is Bonds.

LeBron James is a black man who is supremely gifted and is considered the best in his sport. Yet nary a bad word is said about him. Why? Because he is humble, mature beyond his years and media friendly. Bonds is incredibly arrogant, has half the maturity of LeBron even though he is twice LeBron's age and talks to the media acting as if he just sucked on a lemon. In short, he is a flaming jackass and it pisses people off. It's not misdirected anger, its reaction to his idiotic behavior.
