    No I'm saying baseball should have handled before it even got to the point where someone had the chance to lie about it in court. And I just don't get why they brought them in to begin with.

      Ah, I agree with you there.

        He actually wasn't found guilty on perjury charges. So technically they never proved he lied........... That whole big trial. Everyone knew he did it but still.... he technically has a clean name.

        That's funny. Our government is useless.

        Steroid-era king Barry Bonds was found guilty Wednesday, not of the massive use of steroids during his record-breaking home run streak, but of the obstruction of justice he caused when he knowingly told the jury he was not a consumer of steroids.

        Bonds was charged with one count of obstruction of justice before a courtroom dumbfounded on what they could charge the home run king. The jury reached a verdict on one of the smallest and least controversial charges.

        BALCO founder Victor Conte had few words for the official ruling. “This verdict absolutely makes no sense to me,” he said, minutes after the verdict was announced. “Of all of these counts, the one that makes the least sense to me is the obstruction charge. Tell me how there was obstruction of justice.”

        The jury had been deliberating for the last week and spent much of the last three days in the jury room contemplating the three remaining charges. Ultimately, the jury could not reach a verdict on the remaining counts. The judge is considering a mistrial for further deliberation for the three remaining counts.
        I also don't understand.... how can they charge you with obstruction of justice and not perjury..... In order to have committed obstruction of justice wouldn't he have had to have lied....

          Bonds is still facing 3 charges the only thing he was found guilty of was obstruction of justice. He wont get anything for that, it's the same thing Ray Lewis was found guilty on and he just got probation in a double murder case...nothing will happen to Bonds unless he eventually is found guilty of a couple other charges. This isn't close to over yet.
