The Bonds trial was a huge egg on the face of those who wanted jurisprudence to punish PEDs users.
No I know he wasn't convicted based on those words. But it was a general retort to people alleging misconduct. As a recovering Bob Knight apologist, I can tell you I was quite well versed in the "Well that guy has an agenda to bring him down" defense.

Looking at it from the outside in, it simply seems weak.
