Chicago Sun-Times eager to be Marlon Byrd’s judge, jury, executioner

OK, I’m dubious about Marlon Byrd’s claims that his positive test for a breast-cancer-treating, estrogen-blocking, steroid-masking drug had nothing to do with enhancing his performance. A couple of bigwigs at the Chicago Sun-Times are anything but, however. They’re positive Byrd is lying through his teeth:

Now, I’m sure De Luca, Deputy Managing Editor, News and Sports, and Morrissey, columnist, have done exhaustive research on the topic. That topic being how to kick people when they’re down. Byrd might be a career cheater, for all I know. Or he might well be as clean as anyone in the sport. One thing I’m pretty sure about: if he recently started cheating, he’s pretty terrible at it.

Oh, and there’s one more relevant fact: the drug found in Byrd’s system isn’t performance enhancing. But don’t let that stop the snark-fest guys.
