    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.

      It seems if everyone is using drugs to perform, maybe the course is not meant for humans.

    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.

      Wilderness;

      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."  smile:

      I think it'd offer more exciting competition.

      Let the user beware!

      Let the fan have fun!
