The msm sporting writers’ outrage comes off a bit pot calling kettle black to me since most of them looked the other way for a decade while players juiced. It’s only since the public’s outrage increased through increased knowledge of what was happening, no thanks to the writers, that the writers have taken such an indignant stance.

So a writer can’t change their opinion over time as new facts emerge? What a world that would be.

Dude, what are you talking about? There’s no pot or kettle. Just a thermometer. It’s red, not black.
