    Roger Clemens facing criminal charges

    Sportscenter is saying that Clemens is now facing a criminal investigation by the Dept. of Justice into perjury charges.

    I think if they can prove he lied they'll put him away, and rightfully so. This is all blowing up in his face quite nicely. I saw McNamee is filing for the defamation suit against him to be dropped, and for Clemens' lawyer to be thrown off the case because he's represented both Pettitte and Clemens. This is quickly becoming the best reality show on tv.

    I also feel RC is a pompous *** and I've had a bad opinion about him ever since he beaned Mike Piazza in the head.

    I've always been a big fan of Clemens until all of this. Sad, sad, sad.

    ESPN - Congress asks DOJ to prove whether Clemens committed perjury - MLB

    He's screwed. I'd love to see this photo though. Too late for Roger to confess now that he's in this deep. I think had he confessed when the Mitchell report game out it wouldn't even be talked about right now.

    Re: Roger Clemens facing criminal charges

    If he would have just had the intelligence Andy Pettitte does and just admitted it, said he screwed up, he could have avoided the splitter the government just threw at him.

    Re: Roger Clemens facing criminal charges

    I think all of this hooplah about Clemens is getting old. Congress has nothing better to do than figure out if he used steroids or not?? They want to force criminal charges on him??

    I feel like I want to force criminal charges against our government for wasting our d@mn time and tax money!!!!!!!!!!

    I must agree, baseball has been about cheating for a long time. Corked bats, spitballs, foul lines that tilt one way or the other depending on if the home team likes to bunt. There has been so many. How many hours and tax dollars have already been spent. Lets end this crap, I for one am so damn tired of hearing about it.

    ESPN - Committee memo specifies Clemens' 'implausible' testimony - MLB

    This link sites the area's where they think he lied. And from reading it I would say he is screwed.

    Re: Roger Clemens facing criminal charges

    These guys are breaking the laws and should be prosecuted. They are potentially taking jobs away from law abiding players since roster spots are limited. These type of individuals are also public figures and with the benefits they are so eager to accept they also need to the responsibility and the consequences when they don't act properly on those responsibilities. The one thing I would like to see is that Congress pass laws to charge fees to those that are found to be guilty as a way to pay for the cost of prosecuting. I would think these guys would be less likely to cheat knowing they could lose money. Right now it's all upside... take the drugs and maybe play better = more money, and worst case you get caught and are embarrassed / spend a couple months in jail. If they had to forfeit all monies made while cheating and could never play again then most likely the problem would permanently go away.

    Would also like to see stiff penalties to the clubs. Pro sports is big money and thus punishments made for normal people are just not effective. They need to have punishment that matters to these players and teams.
