Reminds me of that poor guy during the Olympics in Atlanta a few years back. The press killed him led by Fraud news and others. Yet it turned out to be a zealot who did it.Koimaster: Valid points. Guilty in public court; but, yet to be tried. I would be interested to see what, if anything, will be done about this, and the entire scandal in MLB.
True; but, at the same time, if there is an illegal operation that is bigger than MLB (suppliers, drugs, themselves, shady doctors, etc.), than that does need to be investigated. Who knows how far it stretches? College, high schools? Overseas? And what is it funding? I feel this is the tip of the iceberg.Exactly, this whole steroids thing is ridiculous.
As a nation, we've got lots bigger fish to fry.
It does not mention his cause of death. Poor man probably died of a broken heart, knowing he was innocent; but, was convicted in the court of public opion.Richard Jewell did get $500k from NBC, and an undiclosed amount from the
New York Post.
Sadly, Mr. Jewell died about four months ago.
It's a shame that he was treated the way he did for doing the right thing. Regardless if the FBI thought him a suspect or not, I don't think he deserved the media feeding frenzy. And the news media wonders why most people hold them in such low regard...
