    Clemens apologizes for 'mistakes'

    Denies having affair with country-music star when she was 15

    NEW YORK -- Roger Clemens apologized Monday for unspecified mistakes in his personal life but denied having an affair with a 15-year-old.


    The New York Daily News reported last week that Clemens had a decade-long relationship with country star Mindy McCready that began when she was 15 and an aspiring singer. The newspaper also linked Clemens to former Manhattan bartender Angela Moyer and Paulette Dean Daly, a former wife of champion golfer John Daly.

    "Even though these articles contain many false accusations and mistakes, I need to say that I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry," Clemens said in a statement issued by spokesman Patrick Dorton. "I have apologized to my family and apologize to my fans. Like everyone, I have flaws. I have sometimes made choices which have not been right."

    Brian McNamee, Clemens' former trainer, accused him in December's
    Mitchell Report of using performance-enhancing drugs in 1998, 2000 and 2001, before players and owners agreed to ban them from baseball.

    Clemens, a seven-time Cy Young Award winner and 354-game winner, has repeatedly denied using steroids and human growth hormone and filed a defamation suit against Brian McNamee.

    "I believe my personal life has nothing to do with the accusations of steroid and HGH use," Clemens said. "I have already made clear that I did not use them. Now, I have been accused of having an improper relationship with a 15-year old girl. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    This relationship has been twisted and distorted far beyond reality. It is just one of many, many accusations that are utterly false.

    "I realize that many people want me to simply confess and apologize for the conduct that I have been accused of, but I cannot confess to, nor apologize for, things I did not do. I have apologized to my family for my mistakes, and having offered this apology to the public, I would ask that you let me and my family deal with these matters in private."

    Clemens' lawyer, Rusty Hardin, said Friday he will talk with his client about whether to proceed with the defamation suit following a wave of unpleasant publicity.

    "He's getting pummeled," attorney Rusty Hardin said then. "I've never seen somebody get beat up like this. In some ways, I think we're on uncharted ground."

    The decision on whether to drop the suit rests with Clemens. "That's always a decision the client has to make," Hardin said. "That's not the lawyer's decision."

    If you've done nothing wrong, dickface, why apologize to the family?

            BTW, will Clemens buy out Jim Edmonds' stake in F15TEEN?

            After all, to Jimmy, it's just a number, to Clemens, It's a statement.

                        "" I have apologized to my family for my mistakes, and having offered this apology to the public, I would ask that you let me and my family deal with these matters in private." "

                        boy is he dumb. "this apology" that he gives the public sounds like one you get from your boyfriend cause he doesn't know what he did wrong or doesn't really know what to apologize for first. its a bunch of words, but no substance. he looks much better if he just shuts up...though these days even saving puppies & kittens from a burning building while finding a cure for diseases may not even help this guy ever look good again.

                              Let me see - he asks if the public would let him and his family deal with these private matters.

                              Sure - why wouldn't we.

                              Unless he's still claiming he's a totally innocent hard working family man.
