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.
Absolutely not. I feel that each team member should be held accountable individually for their actions when they try to enhance their performance with drugs. I don't feel the whole team should suffer for one person mistake.
It would probably be a bigger deterrent. Stars don't seem to care if they screw over a franchise that pays them, they'll just hop to another team for a bigger paycheck. A 50 game suspension didn't seem to bother the two baseball players that were banned this week. I even read that Cabrera set-up a fake web site to try and trick MLB into thinking he purchased a legit product off the fake website he set-up. I guess some people will never learn common sense, but I'd say the effect of having the cold shoulder from your team would be a deterrent to some players.
Of course not. The team member should take the responsibility himself/herself. Other team members are innocent.
If you take wins away from the team, then there will be a lot more peer pressure NOT to use PEDs. If it affects the team, then the clubhouse will self-police. That is the best deterrent
No. That isn't fair at all. The entire group shouldn't pay for one idiot's mistake.
No, I don't agree with forfeiting wins and such. Baseball has the worst record for dealing with performance enhancing drugs. 50 games for Melky Cabrera is a joke. The suspensions should be longer, maybe a year. The International Olympic Committee has the right idea with 2-year bans and frequent testing. They even keep samples for years so they can be re-tested when new methods are developed. If you are going to penalize a team, I would suggest taking away draft picks and restricting a team's ability to sign free agents. That would make the owner's and management do more policing of their own.
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 don't know that 50 games is "a joke". That's 1/3 of the season. Do you think that the NFL would suspend a player 5-6 games (1/3 of their season) for PEDs? I don't think they would. So, MLB is actually tougher than the NFL
Roid rage is much more prevalent in the MLB than the NFL in terms of tearing it up on the field. I mean, you got greats of the game like Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Mark and Sammy. And now Melky Cabrera who might lead the major leagues in hitting (cu
If the other members of the team knew a member was using these and did not report it, Yes. Their motive for keeping it quiet would be the same as that of the person using them. That would be an unfair advantage. In other words, they are all cheating. Remember, these guys share a locker room and showers together for a long period of time. If a guy gains 50 lbs. of muscle mass in 6 months, everyone knows there is something going on. For the other members to say they didn't know in this day and age, would be hard to believe.
