Stay Tuned...

Conspicuous by their absence in the indictment were the high profile athletes who since October have testified before the grand jury at the San Francisco federal building ranging from Barry Bonds to track stars Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery to Raiders linebacker Bill Romanowski. Athletes were given limited immunity for their testimony. But authorities could prosecute them if there are indications they committed perjury. Steven Ungerleider, an Oregon sports psychologist who has consulted with U.S. Olympians, said athletes linked to the case should not be breathing a sigh of relief.  "There's a lot of athletes who are pretty nervous right now because Conte's Rolodex has a lot of names on it,''Ungerleider said. "The word of the hour is 'stay tuned,' because there's more to come.''
