You didn't list a single moment, all you did was list names.

1. Chris Benoit kills himself and his family in a fit of roid rage.

How can anything else be number 1? Sure other people have tarnished their sport and their reputation, but who on your list went crazy and killed their family and then take their own life?

2. Barry Bonds breaks Hank Aaron's all time home run record.

To me, the all time record is far more important than the single season record, and it upset a lot of people when the most notorious PED user in baseball when he broke Hammerin' Hank's record.

3. The home run race

McGwire vs Sosa gets a lot of credit for saving baseball following the 1994 strike, and then everyone found out it was all a lie.


4. Canseco writes his book

Every name he mentioned in his book has turned out to be true. Canseco snitching helped bring the PED problem in baseball to the public light.


5. The Biogenisis clinic

For those of us who thought the PED era in baseball was essentially over, here we go again, and there's some big names who could be facing suspensions.


2. Armstrong
He gave us 147 magical weeks as the n??mero UNO guy..

3. Bonds
73

4. Wwf
My childhood..

5. Babe Ruth
If the rumors are true.. Tell your mother thanks!
6. Martina navatallova..
Just look at her veiny arms!
She brought woman's tennis to the next level..

7. Ben Johnson..
The Seoul Olympics was the first big drug case in Olympics..

8. Pantini
Armstrongs only true rival in the mountains..

9. Tyler Hamilton..
Olympic gold, gets busted a week later..

10. Marion jones..
I knew it was too good to be true!

11. Justin gatlin
High profiled sprinter..

12. Rafael palmiero..
Only for the, I HAVE NEVER!!!!! Speech..
Classic stuff..

13. Jan ulrich
Dude was nuts..
Even failed for ecstasy!

14. Rasmussen.
Had that one totally dominating tour..

15. Contador
Those attacks.. Beast of acceleration..

16. Roger Clemens..
I think he could have made a successful living without juice.

17. Juicin giambi
I got to heckle him once.. It was soo much fun!

19. Floyd landis..
Wins the tour, in one of the greatest comebacks of all time..
Only to see it strip away.

20. Ivan basso,
Beat Armstrong in dramatic fashion on a mountain stage..


We've already seen your list, and while you did hit the big names when it comes to PED use, naming athletes really isn't naming moments, they're not really close to the same thing.

And your second argument was essentially the exact same as the first. You have the same list of athletes and added what they are famous for.


And yet all of the stories on your list combined do not equal the significance of Chris Benoit's roid fueled double homicide-suicide.

Vince McMahon canceled an entire episode of RAW just to show highlights of Benoit's career and to honor him, only to find out a couple of days later that Benoit was the culprit and roid rage fueled it. Benoit's PED use directly lead to the death of himself and his family.


And Bonds breaking Aaron's record was far more significant than hitting 73 in one season. A single season record is one thing, but an all time record is far more cherished, and Bonds broke the most famous one of them all thanks to PED use that transformed him from a skinny Ethiopian into a huge freak.


Your moment of roid rage...
How is that a performance enhancing moment??
If I had to guess that guy was nuts before roids..
Either way..
I chose guys that reached for the stars..
You chose a guy.. That has nothing to do with reaching for the stars..


Benoit's murder/suicide was directly related to his use of PEDs, he went crazy and killed his family

And I'm done
