What's the problem here?
We humans have about as much athletic ability as "cattle!"
Instead of publicly embarrassing "users," why not do as they do in bodybuilding i.e. 2 classes of participants, 1 group "natural" and another, "users."
Let the players decide which group to join.
Why are we so hell bent upon being just a talented,athletic human and not, athletically, being "the best we can be?"
Let the "fan" watch which ever he wants to see.
Maybe we should just populate the playing field with remote controlled "players". A soccer field with little ATV's running around, pushing the ball. The "athletes" can sit on the sidelines with their remotes.
A hockey rink with remotes using studded tracks and flailing hammers for the opponents.
Athletes train by eating big macs and fries.
Give folks what they want!
I've been a bodybuilder and powerlifter for years.
I decided to do it "natural." No money in it and certainly no fame.
Arnold won Mr Olympia, Mr Universe mr. "Everything" and became Bush's rep for health and wellness. He was a "user" for many years. the people love the "freaks!"
Give the public what it wants!
Let the players decide at what level they want to participate.
Make it a level playing field but make it legal, classify 'em and make it known to all.
We humans are crappy at athletics. Slow, weak, and fragile compared to other animal life 'cept for the "sloth." :
I think it'd offer more exciting competition.
Let the user beware!
Let the fan have fun!
Think of the money that could be made!
Fans'd be shellin' out huge amounts of $ to see athletes charged up on steroids making the games wild and viscious!
Money, money money!!! :
actually natural is roid free 2-7 years depending on the orginzation you use

Do you care whether or not professional athletes take performance enhancing drugs?I don't. It's supposed to be a larger than life spectacle.

In my opinion, Pete Rose is the greatest hitter to ever step on a baseball field and should be in the Hall of Fame. I'm sure there are players in the HOF that have also done some immoral things in their time. Isn't the HOF based on the players performance on the field? Should the steroid era...

Would you take Steroids or other performance enhancing drugs?Pro athletes that have been caught are ostracized for taking them. It's cheating plain & simple, but I do understand the argument. If you were a highly recruited athlete or a veteran professional athlete that started to lose your...

Recently several of Lance Armstrong's teammates have come out and admitted that they not only took performance enhancing drugs..but they saw and KNOW that Lance took them as well. Although there's no positive tests to support this, nor any evidence outside of circumstanstial ones to prove...
