Why People Like Me Don't Care About A-Rod and Steriods

Baseball can never seem to let something live and let die. Another "superstar" has admitted to using steroids and another cry of shame is up in the air. People leave the man alone!

After the story came out last weekend that Alex Rodriguez had used performance enhancing drugs from 2001-2003, he came out and said it was true, apologized, and stated that he's now ready for 14 years of clean baseball.

So leave him the heck alone!

I'm sick and tired of players using steroids. I don't give a flying you-know-what. It's sick, old, and the public is tired of hearing about it.

Yes, I DO acknowledge that it's a big problem and baseball needs to clean it up, blah, blah, blah.

But, clean it up behind closed doors and don't tell the media about it. They cannot have a heart attack with whatever you are doing behind the scenes. Other sports have handled situations like this similarly.

Granted, other sports haven't had the doping issue like baseball has but they've had issues that created huge media craziness that manage to go away. How about Spygate?

We thought it was going to go on for awhile, but over time, it died down. And if you asked the average person, they may not even know what you're talking about.

How about the Gretzky gambling ring scandal around four or five years ago. Yea, I know you definitely don't remember that.

The point is...baseball needs a way to clean up the game behind closed doors, so that we can stop hearing about another player using steroids and someone writing a retarded book about it to make money.
