I see a  lot of astro batters been getting beaned lately.  :th_KO:

Cheating is cheating. What can you really say about it. I think what had everyone so pissed was the commission did ABSOLUTELY  NOTHING to the players for KNOWINGLY PARTICIPATING and using it. Citing the contracts supposedly say the players cannot be held accountable for their OWN actions..

But then they turn around and threaten the other teams and other teams players  with MAJOR penaltys IF they do Any reprisals.

That's just plain bullsheet imo.

They got players that set records using steroids, loaded bats, etc, ,,,  but wont remove that record , why? Their skin color?

The professional sports governing bodies  have been pretty subjective and biased in handing out punishment to cheaters.

And REALLY GOOD  At covering things up and keeping cheating quiet..

Probably a pretty touchy subject on any forum.  :th_thicon_funny:

Baseball season.
Good I have not been sleeping well lately need something BORING on TV to lull me night night.


Astros and other team(s) that were found to have cheated and won should IMO be stripped of titles and championship given to team that lost in series or vacated for that season.

Cheaters suck no matter what sport or thing in life they are cheating at.

Cheating is wrong. It hurts the entire sport. IMO, turning a blind eye, is the same as saying that cheating is acceptable.

It casts a black stain on everyone involved, no matter how small their part was in the cheating.

Remember the scandal of the 1919 World Series.

I love baseball. Always have.The cheating scandal with the Astros left me kind of amazed that in this day and age that they went to such lengths to steal pitching signs and thought they could get away with it. If you steal something and somebody else knows about it then, sooner or later, everyone knows. BB players are routinely trade to other teams, given their outright release, have arguments with management, etc. It was just a matter of time before someone snitched. I'm surprised it took so long.
What really gets to me is they didn't need to cheat. They had great pitching talent and a way better than average offense with an all star defense. Hell they won half of their away games in stadiums where they couldn't cheat.
Getting rid of the management was a good step but they need to be stripped of their World Series title.

Surprised,, and honestly, DELIGHTED,  forum members take such a hard line on cheating.

Totally agree Alte.

ANY player, in ANY sport, that wins championships and sets records by cheating, should be stripped of the title, or record.

Sports are suppose to be about fair play, and playing to the best of one's ability and talent. Cheating should never be acceptable, ever.
