Another largest one? What's up with that? MLB, 20 players, some big names according to ESPN. http://espn.go.com/espn/otl/story/_/id/9301536/major-league-baseball-suspend-20-players-including-alex-rodriguez-ryan-braun-part-miami-investigation

F those baseball players - 2nd offense = 100 games - oh wahh - poor them. If they played an actual sport and not a game - it would have real consequences for doping... like that NY asshat would be banned for the rest of his jillion-dollar life. The reason these azzholes need to be taxed at like 50% after the first X millions is because they are (many) doing nothing to help humanity - just buying a 10th Lambo or yet another vacation villa in Maui or upgrading that Manhattan loft to 7000SF over the tiny 5000SF one.
If anyone thinks that US baseball or football are even a tiny bit clean - well, those people are called doofuses. I am 100% over american sports and the overpaid 'roided (HGH actually) players and the idiot fans that actually pay $$ to support those organizations.
Rant over, carry on.

BN - Watch the ESPN 30 for 30 segment called 'Broke.' Its on Netflix. Something like 65% of those idiots declare bankruptcy within 5 years of retiring. They live hand to mouth on millions a year. It's a big perversion of our economic structure - the collectively spend trillions on unproductive, valueless, often counterproductive things.

I'm with you BN, but not only American athletes, all pro athletes. Remember the Italian speed walker in the the last Olympics.

I heard the headline on NPR and thought "Wow, Operation Puerto is really in the news!"

There must be a former East German athlete somewhere shaking a cane at the tv yelling "Fucking Amateurs!".

8.5M is a big "but"
-- that which cannot be proven as true must be regarded as false or not affirmed as true
