I figured that this might be the proper forum for this one...wasn't sure, though...
As baseball heads into another season...the steroid controversy continues to hover over it like a mushroom cloud. Barry Bonds will be chasing the game's most hallowed home run records, while a new book detailing allegations against him is flying off the shelves.
Of particular interest here...Commissioner Bud Selig has named former Senator George Mitchell, a member of the Disney board, to head the investigation.
Oh, by the way, Mitchell has a position with the Boston Red Sox. And, oh yeah, Disney's ESPN has a mega-zillion dollar TV rights deal...what conflict?
Any thoughts???Mitchell, meanwhile, said he will not resign his position with the Red Sox. He is also chairman of The Walt Disney Co., the parent of ESPN, a national broadcast partner of baseball.
"I don't think there's any conflict," he said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. "I'm going to be independent, have complete independent authority and will act."
ESPN is airing a weekly behind-the-scenes look at Bonds -- with the San Francisco star's cooperation -- starting next week.
