Bad for the Jews
We don’t get many shots at the Big Leagues, and even fewer at professional sports stardom.
So when the Hebrew Hammer has problems, it’s Bad for The Jews.
As reported at JSOnline, Braun drug test positive:
Did Ryan Braun cheat to become the 2011 National League most valuable player or is he the innocent victim of a premature report?
That was the question being asked across the baseball world Saturday with the stunning news that the Milwaukee Brewers’ star leftfielder tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and faced a 50-game suspension, according to a report by ESPN’s “Outside the Lines.”
No one associated with Braun, Major League Baseball or the Brewers would comment publicly on the report because the positive test is being appealed through an arbitration process that is ongoing. It was unknown how long that process could take.
In a late-night text message, Braun said he wanted to hold a news conference to give his side of the story and the details of the entire situation but was advised not to while the appeal process is ongoing.
“I can’t wait to get that opportunity,” Braun said. “This is all B.S. I am completely innocent.”
Charlie Sykes notes the reaction from Jew and Gentile alike, at least in Wisconsin:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
As a Wisconsinite, Brewer fan and someone who cares deeply about the game, I hope this is a false positive. I follow cycling as well and know that WADA (to whom any appeal goes) has a history of mishandling samples and being driven largely by politics and prejudices.
Ryan Braun is a great asset to the Milwaukee Brewers and the city and state. I do not have the words to tell you how I am feeling about this right now.
National federations do almost all of the testings. They send them to WADA approved laboratories. WADA only does international hit missions – as randomly as visas allow.
Negative tests have the back up of the B sample . False positives are rare for 2 samples. A cyclist would be dealt with by his /her national fed & then the International Fed. Disputes then go to the Court of arbitration in Sport.
Overall WADA is a lightly funded organisation where the CEO is an unpaid position far cleaner than the international federations . They are up against mighty professional associations & whole countries.
WADA has cleaned up the formerly disgusting drug riddled sport of cycling where young men were falling dead off their bikes. They had no input into baseball & only by the pressure of Congress are WADA guidelines in baseball’s orbit.
If MLB and the MLBPA were truly serious about PEDs, then they would institute a rule that any player who fails a drug test would have their contract voided and they be banned from the game forever. A 50 game slap on the wrist suspension is utterly meaningless in the face of $4 million average salaries.
Bad for the Jews? That’s funny. Barry Bonds – bad for blacks? Barry Obama – bad for everyone!
There’s more to the story–which will be interesting.
Not only did he test positive, he tested positive for synthetic.
While I’d like to believe his innocence, he wouldn’t be the first player to claim that and then be proven later to be a bald-raced liar.
or a bald-f one, either.
No, but Ryan Braun has impressed me as an unusually impressive man of fine character. I followed the Brewers all season and I will be shocked and greatly disappointed if he is not found innocent.
Well, speaking of the Jewish people, ‘Newt Gingrich Attacked By Weasels’ (Jew-bashing weasels in particular).
