Expert on ESPN said he'll likely get probation and house arrest for a short period of time. Hopefully no jail time.

I personally don't care if he does jail time or not. If he does jail time then I hope he shares a cell with Roger Clemens. I have much disdain for both of them.

House arrest and probation most likely.

Why even bother with this trial at this point?

Only Bond's trainer has and will continue to see the view from inside a penetentiary.

He's where the real truth lies and is willing to go to jail again so as not to further incriminate himself and Bonds. Oh the stories he could tell...........

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge has sent Barry Bonds’ former trainer to jail for refusing to testify at the slugger’s perjury trial.

U.S. District Judge Susan Illston found Greg Anderson in contempt Tuesday and ordered him held in custody until he testifies or the trial ends, which could be as long as four weeks.

Prosecutors allege Anderson provided Bonds with performance-enhancing drugs and detailed instructions on how to use them. His refusal to testify has undercut a significant portion of the government’s case against Bonds because the judge has ruled much of the evidence tied to Anderson is off limits.

Anderson served more than a year in prison for refusing to testify in 2006 before the grand jury investigating the home-run record holder. He also served three months in prison after pleading guilty in 2005 to steroid distribution and money laundering.

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
