Bob Nightengale, Major League Baseball writer for USA Today, stated the following in his Jan. 5, 2015 article titled "Hall of Fame PED Hypocrisy Must End," available at

“What the last 30 years should have taught us, and the Biogenesis scandal reminded us, is that we have absolutely no idea who was clean, and who was dirty… I vote for the players who had Hall of Fame careers, regardless of their connections to steroids and performance-enhancing drugs… Come on, this isn’t the Sistine Chapel. We’ve let murderers, racists, and abusers in the Hall of Fame.

If you wanted to kick out every Hall of Fame player who ever illegally used amphetamines, you’d be able to fit the remaining players in an airplane bathroom.”
