Here is the example that Major League Baseball sets when they allow players like A-Rod to play after admitting he used and then misled the press about steroid use.
A Mason City, Iowa father was arrested for supplying his son steroids. The father and mother are divorced and child visitation is being exercised. The AP reports the son was given the drugs when he was on a visitation weekend.
“Court records show that boy told investigators his father gave him the pills during an earlier weekend visitation. The records also show that Gerleman admitted to giving his son the needle and the pills.”
The Gilbertville police were called when the son allegedly assaulted the mother who phoned the police. Officers found a syringe and 105 pills in the child’s bedroom. The boy is 14-years old.
In a statement issued Saturday but the MLB, Executive Vice President of Labor Relations Rob Manfred said, "We are disturbed by the allegations... Because the survey testing that took place in 2003 was intended to be non-disciplinary and anonymous, we can not make any comment on the accuracy of this report as it pertains to the player named."
"For the record, have you ever used steroids, human growth hormone or any other performance-enhancing substance?" Couric asked.
"No," Rodriguez replied.
Asked if he had ever been tempted to use any of those things, Rodriguez told Couric, "No."
"You never felt like, 'This guy's doing it, maybe I should look into this, too? He's getting better numbers, playing better ball,'" Couric asked.
"I've never felt overmatched on the baseball field. I've always been a very strong, dominant position. And I felt that if I did my work as I've done since I was, you know, a rookie back in Seattle, I didn't have a problem competing at any level. So, no," he replied.
I don’t know who the MLB thinks they are fooling but it’s not the kids who play sports and want to play ball in the Major Leagues. The MLB isn’t fooling the fathers whose expectations father’s place on their kids.
