    Ryan Braun: "Never Believe Any Of Us"

    MILWAUKEE—In his first statement after receiving a 65-game suspension from baseball, Brewers slugger Ryan Braun called on fans Tuesday to remember that every single word that he or any other baseball player accused of using steroids has ever said publicly is a lie.

    “Please be aware that nothing we ever say is true, and when I said that I would ‘bet my life’ I didn’t take steroids, you should have stopped right there and assumed that I took them,” said the former NL MVP, who went on to ask fans whether they really believed that someone who narrowly avoided a 50-game ban for elevated testosterone levels on a technicality could be wrongfully incriminated a second time in two years.

    “If faced with either telling the truth and losing millions of dollars or lying and keeping our millions of dollars, we’re going to choose to betray the confidence and trust of everyone around us. Even when we make a confession, the truth is that we did so in a strategic attempt to prevent you from digging any deeper and discovering the really despicable stuff we did.”

    Braun concluded his remarks by asking why reporters bothered to write down a single word from his speech since the entire thing was, in all likelihood, also one giant lie. http://www.theonion.com/articles/rya...y-of-us,33223/

    Just to be clear, that was a quote from The Onion. It is not real.

    Pac...we cannot quote entire articles. Just provide a short synopsis and a link. You can get the board in trouble quoting the whole thing. And yes, some of these sites DO pay attention to it.

    That is pretty much the approach I take anyways to players' comments about PED's.
