Writing a book had many were Ramirez to the list of baseball starts going down in history with -- -- next whose name.
The Dodgers left -- suspended for fifty games after testing positive for banned substance.
Suspicion will cause the suspension rather a cost of nearly eight million dollars out of his 25 million dollar salary.
Our old de LA -- as a former NFL -- WW star.
As a result he's probably signature of athletes get involved in a whole lot of things including illegal performance enhancing drugs.
He's here to discuss what this John thanks a lot for joining us today.
Hey thank you Charles in the first question always is like -- how stupid can these guys -- I mean let's face it come on the guidelines within.
He -- played all summer long about his check.
He won an extra money gave the Dodgers a hard time Manny being Manny how stupid can he be and why.
I think that's best left and -- formal question.
There's not an answer look this guy I don't know mr.
-- But he is a moron for doing this baseball has gone under such scrutiny for not testing for so many years and they've got -- game level attendants back up to record levels.
They are not going to tolerate this which they shouldn't.
These guys are gonna get busted but just like most athletes they're gonna try to bend the rules -- try to get around -- it's wrong.
And now baseball's doing something about it which is wonderful for this sport.
You know purchasing of baseball's done something about it -- -- most sports but.
Can you argue that for a long time most of -- sports organizations turn their head the other way.
And there's no doubt about it Charles the only one that didn't want the NFL and one it's not a sport -- which is entertainment World Wrestling Entertainment who initiated their own testing program.
Baseball almost died after the strike.
And when you had these guys dramatic hit these 500 foot home runs.
Brands were blocking what argues -- are all but they read and thirty to 40000 fans at batting practice for this guy.
And baseball was revived -- -- of the long ball debate turner had absolutely 100% yes.
Now this stuff that many apparently who was using weren't exactly steroids but.
Somehow they were used because his -- his sexual proud that the world started to head match.
Now apparently that's -- side isn't that sort of a something that happens we do steroids explains it -- to the audience exactly what's going on here.
What many ever -- is accused of -- HCG it's what -- Jose Canseco was busted -- pled to misdemeanor sneaking back from Mexico.
It is something guys take -- it boost the natural occurring testosterone levels lot of girls will take yes we're coming off of a steroid or hormones cycle.
This was not banned by baseball to last year but many should've known this taking this will boost your natural testosterone levels.
But it will boosted falsely it will boost with the drug and -- against the rules he knew this implicitly.
These guys are not taking substances that they don't know what is that is the biggest BS I ever heard.
That a world class athlete would put something in his body that he has no idea what it is.
John we've got to about a minute left.
OK he's going to be out of eight million dollars everyone knows the health risk.
What combination of things will it take do you think for athletes just to say now.
What what what Dallek did but this is doing I mean you go -- and educate these young people look when I started sports thirty years go pro sports twenty years ago.
Guys did know the dangers that they consider what the average person didn't know about it.
They're starting to learn now but what we have to do is educate young people educate young people as young as high school the dangers of it also followed up with random testing you've got to test on every level let -- know there will be zero.
Zero tolerance for this well it's amazing I hope it works because I think hell and high schools probably an epidemic right now amongst high school athletes.
Charles we'll look look at the NFL pictures from 86 to 89 the difference in size -- of players testing it does work it is a great deterrent that's what we need thank you so much I really appreciate.
