Charles Barkley on Jose Canseco

I just watched Charles Barkley being interviewed on PTI.  He had no voice whatsoever; Kornheiser said he sounded like Cookie Monster--I thought maybe he sounded like some freaky alien on Star Wars.  

Anyhow, they mentioned that baseball was Charles' true love and then asked him about the latest steroid scandal brought to us by Canseco.  I liked what he had to say and will paraphrase it here.  I will use quotation marks below but don't get me wrong--I'm paraphrasing, approximating what I remember Charles having said.

He said that Jose used to be his favorite player, but no longer:  "You never rat out your teammates.  Never never ever."  

So Kornheiser then asked him, "Does it bother you more that he ratted out his teammates than it does that he actually used steroids?"

And Charles responded, "Well, based on the way a lot of these guys look, it's probable that a lot more of these guys are using steroids than just Canseco.  And also, I think a lot of people are being hypocritical about this; I think a lot of the media are being hypocrites and a lot of owners are being hypocrites.  And I say this because I think a lot of these people could have known about this steroid use years ago, but they were too busy counting their money, or counting the homers to do anything about it."

Anyhow, just thought I'd throw it out there ...
