Steroids? Knock me down!


Recommended Posts

It's also increasingly apparent that every professional cyclist from Armstrong down uses dope.

 

Are you sure about Armstrong? Do you think he gets a free pass because of the cancer?

One of his advisors is Michele Ferrari who is currently on trial for supplying drugs to other cyclists. He has also tested positive for steroids though he claimed it was due to the use of a legal skin cream, an excuse that the relevant bodies accepted.

Wow! Do you think Sheryl Crow is using as well?

Memo to diary. Find time to be shocked at the possibility that Bonds and Giambi have used steroids. Afternoon of February 7 looks good.

Jaywalking is most definitely a competitive sport, and a real fun one at that. I would do it competitively for a four-year $125 million deal, with appropriate incentives for more, of course.   The r

Sure, but should it be? If everyone is doing it, what difference does it make?

But what about players that choose not to do it? Aren't they at a disadvantage?

Yes, but that's their choice.

So players that choose not to cheat and poison their bodies are disadvantaged? :D

What about a guy like Bonds breaking previous records. Should Bonds home run record count?

 

No.

 

Ditto for McGwire, Sosa, Giambi, etc. Guys like Babe Ruth won their medals the old fashioned way, with plenty of scotch and lots of women. Guys like Henry Aaron and Willie Mays did it on personal skill

How is it any different from offensive linemen overeating to be more effective blockers?

Should the results of the games in which they played stand?

 

I don't see how history can be rewritten. Of no home run by Giambi can you say, he would not have hit it had he not been on steroids. Ty Cobb, I understand, used all kinds of underhand and violent tactics on the field. What are you going to do about his stats?

The last I heard, food was legal and the substances supposedly used by Giambi and Bonds were distributed illegally.

So you would approve of the use of steroids if they were prescribed?

Examples please.

Pure hearsay. Didn't he used to sharpen his studs to deter attempts to tag him when sliding? Maybe that's legal.

Irrelevant. If what the players are accused of is true, and Giambi admitted it, the players participated in an illegal activity to improve their performance. I think just about anyone would agree that would be cheating, regardless of how many other players may have also done the same thing.
