Barry Bonds has until December 7 to turn himself in to federal authorities in San Francisco.

It is the talk of the sport's world, "The Shame of the Game" headlines scream "Liar."

On the radio and online, people are discussing the Barry Bonds' indictment to the grand jury for using steroids.

Even San Francisco Giants fans who stood by Bonds cheering as he got bigger and better, swinging his way to the home run record, even they are having second thoughts:

"He lied about it then. He had it coming to him because we all could tell he was using steroids, couldn't we," assured Jennifer Accettola, a team fan.

"If he's cheating and he's obstructing justice, he should go down," admitted another fan, Jake Babick.

Whatever happens in court, analysts predict Bonds career is likely over.

And as for the game itself, the cloud hanging over America's favorite pastime is likely to grow darker with the release of baseball investigator George Mitchell's report on steroid use.

"It's really going to prove embarrassing and humiliating for a lot of players and for the sport but hopefully, and this is what I've heard from general managers and others, this will be at least the start of moving forward and putting this behind the game," explained ESPN's Tim Kurkjian.

What the game needs, said another analyst, is a slugger like "A-Rod" to break Bonds record and restore the game's integrity.

Bonds has been a name in Major League Baseball for 22 years.
