Should an entire team be disqualified when a team member uses performance enhancement drugs?


When a team member is suspended for X number of games because of using performance enhancement drugs, should the team still get to keep their position in the league? After all, the enhanced team member's effort may have played a part in getting the team where they are at that point.

    I totally agree that each person should be held accountable for their actions.

    That's kind of what I'm thinking. I see teams make it to the playoffs with the "enhanced" player. It's almost like a planned strategy nowadays. Then, so what if the team loses that player so long as it got them to the playoffs. Right?

    I know...!!! I'm thinking if my husband all of a sudden gained 50 lbs. I would notice it. I see what he eats, how much he exercises... something abnormal is going on. IF the team knew, then I think they are as guilty as the enhanced player.

    Yes. I agree the suspensions should hurt a little bit. I'm hearing a lot of people around the water cooler suggesting, as you, that the suspension should be more like a year or so.

    I agree that the team member should take responsibility. Also, if the other team members are aware of the incident and didn't do anything about it - keep playing like nothing is wrong, winning games, then thay might be guilty by association.
