If Bonds gets in Hall, say 'bye to the Steroid Era

As an aside to the Barry Bonds trial and his Hall of Fame chances, the whole notion of keeping steroid users out of Cooperstown breaks down the moment one of the juicers, perhaps Bonds as soon as 2012, gets voted into the Hall. It’ll completely erode any pressure to keep those who used PEDs out, and open the floodgates for the statistically worthy, like Roger Clemens, Mark McGwire, Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, etc.
Baseball always talks about trying to put the Steroid Era in the rear view mirror, but that can happen only when the first known user gets in. After that, there'll really be nothing to discuss, except the occasional dope like Ramirez who continues to use steroids in a much more vigilant climate.
