    That report was different Big. She lied to federal investigators during the BALCO investigation.

    Those baseball players (except Barry Bonds) didn't lie under oath to a federal grand jury, or to federal investigators. Apples and Oranges.

    Plus, the mitchell report has little proof of use aside from the testimony of two informants looking to get a better deal from the feds. No one was ever under oath for the mitchell report, and he never interviewed any of the players named in the report. All it did was throw a few more names out there that people can now speculate about whether they did or didn't use. No proof has or will come of it, so it's no more authoritative than Canseco's book or "Game of Shadows".

    Steve Riddick is serving some hard time for being involved in the same check scheme (54 months?). Why's everone crying over Marion?

    Who's Steve Riddick?

    That's why.......I could care less about either one of them. If you cheat and get caught you get what you deserve. I just wish they'd catch more of them.

    1. Everyone's not crying over Marion.

    2. Obviously Riddick's role or culpability in the check scheme was greater than hers (54 month sentence v. 2 month sentence).

    I heard Marion is going to be on Oprah today. I just might have to watch.

    Regarding your response to point 2, maybe instead she agreed to testify against some people in the BALCO case and she got a lighter sentance?

    Riddick perpetrated the scam, Jones knew about and did nothing. They clocked as an accomplice for not reporting the criminal act.
