Both of these players continued to break records well into what would normally have been the twilight of a professional baseball players career.(SOURCE)

Sometimes where there is smoke, there might be fire, and Clemens’ problems escalated when his trainer and friend Brian McNamee decided to tell the truth about their illicit steroid affair’s to the government.(SOURCE)

Brian McNamee snitched on Roger Clement's who has been indicted for lying to congress about their steroid abuse.

McNamee has told federal agents, baseball investigator George Mitchell and the committee that he injected Clemens more than a dozen times with steroids and human growth hormone from 1998 to 2001.(SOURCE)

Clemens has maintained that McNamee was lying.(Source)

Clemens faces a combined maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine, although current sentencing guidelines would only put him in jail for 21 months if he is convicted

Now, the only thing he can do is either come clean,…or suffer the consequences like Marion Jones did.(ESPN)
