Schilling talks about the Mitchell Report, Clemens, et al. (for a a very long time)

Curt Schilling at his blog goes on at length about the Mitchell Report and some of the players involved.

The most interesting part is about Roger Clemens.

Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds. I know both of these men. Roger had a profound effect on my career from a very early point. His ‘undressing’ of me and lecture were a major turning point. I’ve always respected his career accomplishments and regarded him as the greatest pitcher to ever play the game. Now I, like every other Yankee, Clemens fan am faced with a dilemma. The two men that fingered multiple players, from my understanding, both testified with immunity, but only if they told the truth. So these guys had every reason in the world to NOT lie. That doesn’t mean they didn’t, but there is an immense amount of incentive for them to NOT lie when they gave their depositions because lying would have seen them open to legal actions beyond what they are already facing. So the question to me then becomes this. It’s no mystery that Roger and Andy are as close as any two teammates I know of. Andy makes no bones about Rogers influence in his career. Their personal trainer, the trainer Roger took to Toronto, then to NY, has admitted to administering PED’s to both men. Andy has admitted he did, and that it was a mistake and he never did it again. Roger has denied every allegation brought to the table. So as a fan my thought is that Roger will find a way in short order to organize a legal team to guarantee a retraction of the allegations made, a public apology is made, and his name is completely cleared. If he doesn’t do that then there aren’t many options as a fan for me other than to believe his career 192 wins and 3 Cy Youngs he won prior to 1997 were the end. From that point on the numbers were attained through using PED’s. Just like I stated about Jose, if that is the case with Roger, the 4 Cy Youngs should go to the rightful winners and the numbers should go away if he cannot refute the accusations.

I am sure Curt went around asking all his teammates not to do PED's and never looked the other way.

"if that is the case with Roger"
Let's see how we can prove that this is the case with anyone. Go ahead, prove it. Then we can re-distribute everyone's awards.
This is professional sports, not the Olympics. The focus is on the creation of income. Does the Mitchell Report ask for discipline?
So many of us were anxiously anticipating the release of the Mitchell Report. This report looks like it is really a public relation coup. Using PED's is wrong, but if so many are using it then it's ok, right?
I was only using HGH, not the dreaded steroids. I only tried it a couple of times. I knew it was wrong and I stopped. I'm sorry. The Mitchell Report, combined with the players well crafted responses have clouded the original focus on the issue. Roger could have said, it was only testosterone, not steroids, I'm sorry.
Does Curt want a couple of those awards?
I'm ready for the season to begin.
Peds are a candy that comes out of a cute dispenser, isn't that true?

It is only by the grace of God (and Selig, and Mitchell, a paid member of the Sox organization) that none of your '0 and '07 teammates were not in that report.

I presume this means Curt is willing to forsake that 2001 championship ring, now that we know it's tainted by Matt Williams's PED use?
