Victor Conte Blasts Book as Containing Lies

Balco founder Victor Conte, released from jail after serving four months for running an illegal steroids distribution ring, blasted what he said were false allegations in the book "Game of Shadows" that he provided Giants slugger Barry Bonds with steroids. In an interview broadcast by KMVR radio in San Francisco and heard throughout California and the Cactus League in Arizona, Conte said he intends to provide proof the book contains "outright lies" and added: "I've said it before and I'll say it again. I've never even had a discussion about steroids with Barry Bonds."
