Should a player be punished for useing steroids. I could care less, I feel like they are not really cheating the game. They are cheating their bodies. It is not like they are point shaving which is cheating, or putting a fix on a game. They are taking drugs to build the body to make it stronger and heal faster. If the crap was avaliable to players back when say Babe Ruth was around what makes us think those players wouldn't have taken them. We as a society created this monster with our win now mentality. The owners of these teams created this by spending millions on people to play games. I guess the most important question is this. If you played a game your whole life, were treated like a god,was making millions of dollars and needed to fight to keep your job every year would you take steroids? He!! yeah I would and most truthful people would say yes to.:confused:

if you dont think that the NFL is the worst sport when it comes to doping then you better wash your eyes. Every single Linebacker and runningback is the size or bigger than Barry Bonds or Mark McGwire. I dont care what they do to their bodies. Let them it makes for good entertainment. If everyone else is doing it why shouldnt they. Even though its bad its their choice.

first off, the reason I posted in this forum is to get fin fans opinion. second they are banned but is it cheating the game or themselves when they use them.

I agree with you and you made great points. They have ways to hide it. The owners could care less the league could care less. The only reason there are policies on Roids is politics.

I dont see why everyone wants to ignore that most players in the NFL are huge. If you look at old NFL videos the players werent that big. By the way people did work out and there was weight lifting in th seventies and early eighties

steriods are an illegal drug. they shouldnt be able to take them, plain and simple.

not like they do know, and they dont have the legal substances to help them get bigger like they did in the 70s.
