One of the few revelations in the much-hyped 60 minutes interview came when Clemens was asked whether he could conceivably take a lie detector test.
"Yeah," he answered. "I don't know if they're good or bad."
Eighth on the career list with 354 wins, the 45-year-old Clemens told CBS's Mike Wallace he was angered McNamee's accusations have been accepted as truth by some.
"It's hogwash for people to even assume this," Clemens said. "Twenty-four, 25 years, Mike. You'd think I'd get an inch of respect. An inch."Clemens said the descriptions McNamee gave Mitchell of injections "never happened." McNamee said Clemens asked him to inject him in the buttocks because Clemens did not like belly-button shots he presumably could inject himself.
"If I have these needles and these steroids and all these drugs, what, where did I get 'em?" he said. "Where is the person out there (who) gave 'em to me? Please, please come forward."
McNamee said he obtained the drugs from Radomski or Clemens supplied them.
"Why didn't I keep doing it if it was so good for me? Why didn't I break down? Why didn't my tendons turn to dust?" Clemens said.
McNamee told Mitchell he injected Pettitte with HGH in 2002. Pettitte issued a statement saying he took two HGH injections while rehabbing his elbow.
"I had no knowledge of what Andy was doing," Clemens said.
Asked why McNamee would tell the truth about Pettitte and lie about Clemens, Clemens said Pettitte's case was "totally separate."
"I was shocked to learn about Andy's situation," Clemens said. "Had no idea about it."
