Barry Bonds Indicted on Perjury, Obstruction Charges

11/15/2007 7:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A San Francisco grand jury has indicted home run champion Barry Bonds on perjury and obstruction of justice charges. It was only a matter of time ...

The indictment comes after a four-year federal investigation into whether the most suddenly Herculean player in pro baseball lied to the grand jury probing steroid use by professional athletes.

Just three months ago, Bonds surpassed legendary Hank Aaron's home run record, and was then promptly dismissed by the San Francisco Giants.

Bye bye Barry, bye bye.

Once it`s proven that Bonds took steroids (and it will), then he should be stripped of his title, fined millions of bucks and have his home run awards taken off him and then ban him from baseball forever.
Hank Aaron never took performance enhancing drugs, he didn`t need to. The MLB should also rename Turner Field Hank Aaron Stadium/Field in honor of this great man. No one deserves it more than Hank.

What great news! this has been a long time coming and that Bonds was arrogant or stupid enough to think it wouldn't happen is amazing. I used to be a major Dodger's fan beginning in 1959 and remember the days of the real greats...Drysdale, Koufaz, Duke Snider and men like Maris and Mantle. Not only has the game changed for the worst, so too have many of the players. The very idea that jerks like Canseco, McGuire and Bonds thought no one ever realized they were cheating is ludicrous. Bonds should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and completely stripped of his so called record. Hank Aaron is a great player and did it the right way, the honorable way. He is a credit to all men and always will be. Bonds deserves to be barred from baseball and any or all honors of the game and the Hall of Fame. Cheaters should never prosper.

Trying to fit it with white folks will do it to you all the time.......You can work with them but NEVER TRUST THEM OR TELL THEM YOUR BUSINESS. That's how Black men like OJ & Barry go wrong.......He could of did the steroids by himself he didn't need any one to inject it for him. Now he see trying to be buddy buddy with whites got him no where..............Black will still support him but I'm sure once he beat this he'll go back to his white women just like OJ did.

Barry went wrong trying to be buddy, buddy with white folks. You can work with them but never tell them your business they will back stab you every time. Barry could of injected himself with the steroids he didn't need anyone to do it for him, trying to fit in with whites will get you burnt every time. I'm sure the black community will support him as we did OJ and I'm sure once this is all over Barry will go back to his white women just as OJ did

Black or White thing get a life thats the problem in this country folks are always trying to make it racial. Spend less time on race and you might get somewhere in life always passing the blame on people. No one forced him to take steroids he did it on his own....

This is truly a sad day...it's sad how some celebrate another's demise. "Don't throw stones at glass windows" If it was left up to a lot of you-nooses and trees would still be used,and you would still have people up for sale like live-stock.
