    Clemens didn't seem believable in the interview

    He kept looking down at his shoes multiple times, and completely buckled at the lie detector test question. I just can't believe his story.

    Yeah, he wasn't very convincing. After waiting so long to give an explanation I just can't believe him either

    I don't know if Clemens did steroids or not but I really hope he didn't. Clemens is a legend in the game and steroids would just ruin everything he worked for much like Rose and gambling. If he did do steroids and he's lying then chances are he'll go through the same hell Rose did when Rose finally admitted to it. But I don't think everyone will turn on him like they did Bonds because he's not a jerk like Bonds was. Roger is a Hall Of Famer in my book regardless of steroids like Bonds but if he did steroids then he won't get in. He would've been a Hall of Famer easy before the Mitchell report. Now I'm not so sure.

    It was hilarious. My Mother happened to be in the room and asked "who is this guy?". I told her who he was and she asked "should we believe him?". I said no. She said "yeah I didnt think so."

    This is probably important to Clemens' legacy, albeit a small sample size, but my 11 year old daughter watched the interview and about half way through stated, "He's lying through his teeth!"

    You had to believe he would have a hard time convincing the older generations of his innocence. If he can't convince the kids than his legacy is in grave danger.

    I am interested if any other Redzone members' children had the same reaction.

    Say it ain't so, Roger.

    The way 60 Minutes conducts their interviews, most of those interviewed for their "scandal-related" pieces look as though their lying. The interviewer looks very stern. The drastic close-up on the interviewee's face, etc.

    I'm not saying Clemens wasn't lying, though. Still, I have my doubts about the Mitchell Report.

    True, however I had heard that Wallace and Clemens were actually friends. Guess not anymore.

    Clemens is now threatening to sue McNamee. This is interesting to me. I still think he's guilty...but if he's going down...he's going down with a fight.

    Clemens should have learned from Pete Rose.

    He'd have been better off saying he used Steroids/HGH to heal his injuries quicker. He might have been more believable.

    I believe some players did use them for just that reason. I don't believe Clemens did though.

    His legacy is tarnished forever, IMHO.

    I have always loved Rocket, but I have to say I thought he was lying through his teeth.

    Not everyone would agree with that by a longshot, including myself. This is a guy who threw a broken bat at a player during a world series game. A guy who in the American league had the reputation of being willing to hit a guy at the drop of a hat, and whose HBP numbers in the NL (where he had to bat) mysteriously decreased.

    His steroid "defense" sounds a lot like the crap he spewed after the world series incident.
