A lot of them are negative, but some are positive in the way that there should be steroids in sports. Josh Hodnik; a writer for the VPX live powerfully website claims that, “Steroids are cheating because it gives an unfair advantage to the players that are taking the drug, to the players who are not” (Hodnik). I disagree with this statement because, you cannot control someones life and what they want tot do with their life is their problem. Our society views sports differently than we think; we have such a strict mindset on the fact that winning is everything. If we change our views on just winning and just look at the athletes themselves, we maybe can get past the idea that steroids in sports is not bad.
Assessing U.S. Efforts To Protect Youths From The Effects Of Performance Enhancing Drugs In Sports." Performance enhancing drugs should be excluded from sports because it is not fair to athletes that aren’t using it and drugging can be very harmful to the body and it can even lead to death if use too frequently. “For strength and power, the best-known drugs are probably those in the vast fami... ... middle of paper ... ... from them” according to the article "Judgments Of The Fairness Of Using Performance Enhancing Drugs." Fans will not be able to see their favorite players play if the athlete gets caught for using performance-enhancing drugs. It is also very disappointing to the fan especially when they look up to them.
This is not fair to the ones who are following the rules and not getting to play because of a player who is breaking the rules are getting better because of steroids not because they are deserving it. Steroids are also dangerous to take. Steroids can cause high blood... ... middle of paper ... ...eir team. Testing will be a great way to keep players from using steroids. With these test players won’t be able to get on steroids and get them out of their system before the next test.
Why are we so fascinated and obsessed with sports? It is the athlete’s ability to entertain us, astound us, and astonish us. It is not the athlete’s ability to use performance enhancing drugs. Everyone struggles at points in their lives or careers, but breaking regulations and deception are not the answers to anything. Steroids are unfair when the dishonesty and validity are forfeited.
All competitors know that using performance enhancing drugs is wrong. But some know that it helps them get a step ahead of other athletes, risking their lives, family bond, and career. Even though these drugs are very desirer able the side effect are just not worth the risk. These drugs dismantle the playing field in all sports. It is not fair to other athletes who work their butts off day in and day out to achieve greatness.
I do not believe in this, I feel like if athletes are in professional sports they should be a role model and shouldn’t care what people think if that romodel is not doing anything they shouldn’t mind to be drug tested. In conclusion, professional athletes should be tested for performance enhancing drugs. They are role models for young adults and it has a lot of health concerns. If they are using performance enhancing drugs it gives players an unfair advantage, also fans and recrutiers should be able to trust our professional athletes, they should have nothing to hide. I do not believe it invades the privacy.
There are obvious pros and cons to both points that are made. The writer believes coaches and athletes should have close relationships because athletes can gain so much from their coach that will not only assist them on the court but in life as well. Coaches are great mentors and role models to their players. They offer valid advice and only want was is best for their pupils. Sports teams are not just about gaining the wins, but it is a family.
Athletes use PEDs to run faster, jump higher and recover at an increased pace. Many athletes are pressured into using PEDs by coaches or managers and are not thoroughly educated the harmful health issues that can come along with taking performance-enhancing drugs. A rising issue is if performance-enhancing drugs should be allowed in professional sports. I believe that in any professional sport, the use of performance-enhancing drugs by athletes should continue to be banned because this rule will help to keep athletes from abusing these harmful drugs. Steroids can seem harmless to the uninformed user but they actually have harmful side effects.
We should not have athletes as scapegoats if children are resistant and defiant. Those are responsibilities of the parents. Just because there are some bad people in sports today doesn't mean that we should generalize. We have had some bad presidents also, but we don't hate all of them. Some of them work hard to contribute something to us just like professional athletes do.
I think that steroids should not be legal in professional sports because it can be very dangerous to an athlete’s health; it is un-fair and is dangerous in social aspects as well. These are the reasons why I think steroids should not be allowed in professional sports. In professional sports the game should be played as fair as possible without any cheating or any problems. Steroids are currently illegal in Canada. Works Cited 1.
