I think most people would agree Bonds was a hall of fame player, but taking steroids during that PERIOD, big Mac, Sosa, then Bonds and many others really messed up the game. And if you think it was OK then your just ignoring the obvious. It actually skewed all the records, changed outcomes of games. It was not only illegal in the US, it was a banned substance in baseball. They knew it, and tried to deny and hide it...most people don't think steroids are a big deal anymore, so it's more acceptable. But if you just decide now that they should be in, then you just open the door to allow the usage of steroids in baseball.
