Question Should pro athletes be allowed to use PEDs?

Does football get a special exemption in fans' minds because it's more violent? Or, is it that, in general, people have become so jaded they simply don't care if pro athletes use "banned substances"/PEDs?

I don't think I care if they do so in order to recover from an injury. Assuming it's medically sound, should we stop a guy from pursuing the quickest road to recovery? But, I do think in football the widespread use of PEDs has contributed to the severity of the injuries we see--stronger, faster guys = harder, more violent hits.

Should pro athletes be allowed to use PEDs? Wondered if there was a general consensus, whether you're a sports fan or not.

Btw, who knew "deer-antler spray" was a thing?

As long as they change the rules to allow it (or just not test), absolutely.

"I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably [have to] change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence," Obama said in an interview conducted Jan. 16 with the New Republic and released Saturday.

Jack Lambert was saying that in the 70s, though--"Quarterbacks should wear dresses."

Tell Obama to worry about other stuff than football. He has a damn country to ruin. Not a sport.

ok, I'll admit I got a little worked up

back on topic. I think pro athletes should be allowed to put whatever they want into their bodies. PEDs do untold damage to the human body and if they want to go ahead and do that to themselves more power to them.

What a badass. Noticed him destroying Theismann.

Looks like he's bigger than a lot of guys on the field. I think it said he was 6'8 308. But, think about the o-lines of today. The good ones are all 6'4+ and usually well over 300lbs. The Ravens and 49ers each have a 6'8 guy on their o-line.

Let everybody use them. The Lance Armstrong's and Barry Bonds' of the world will still exist. PED's don't guarantee greatness. They enhance the great!
