Ex-Con Denies Giving Bonds Steroids

Victor Conte, founder of BALCO, speaking on the steps of his home a few hours after being released from prison, denies he supplied Barry Bonds with steroids. Obviously, with witnesses like that behind Bonds, we might as well call off the George Mitchell-led steroids probe right now.


That's crazy. Victor Conte belongs behind bars

It is crazy, and yes he does.

But -- the Conte thing does call some of the Shadows evidence into question. I am not saying that Bonds is innocent; but I do believe that the authors have been very aggressive in deciding which evidence is reliable and which is not.

Conte has freely admitted -- on network television, and while still facing charges -- to giving steroids to a number of athletes, including America's top track stars and a number of NFL players. In that interview 15 months ago, when asked a direct question about Bonds, he said that he had no specific knowledge about Bonds' drug use.

Why would this attention-seeking glory hound, who was so anxious to claim credit for the performances of Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery, lie to protect Barry Bonds? It doesn't make sense. I think he is probably telling the truth on this issue. He gave his products to Anderson, but never to Bonds, and never saw Bonds using them.
