After Arod and over 100 other mlb athletes were te sted positive for steroid usage it got me contemplating on the reasons for banning steroids all together.
Yes they can cause many negative affects but if cycled correctly in specific dosages with a balanced diet and a recovery phase afterwards most (if not all)negative affects can be avoided all together.
My professor and I both had the idea of pro sports in the reason for its existence is for sole entertainment. Shortly after that I made the leap to imagen if some day all sports would make the move to become more like pro wrestling, if you will.
TNA,WWE & etc are all staged events and stunts shown for entertainment, most of the audiences no that and still are amused. If allowing Pro sports to use drugs would that push for staged sporting events to happen?
Yes you can not stage a home run but by using drugs to help perform better wouldnt that allow for unrealistic events to happen, such as when a pro wrestler picks up and flips his opponent, yes some events and punches are real but the major are acted and staged.
Most sports nowaday are based soley on supplementation. Caffiene is considered a drug in some ways but yet it is legal even though it can help you perform better. In some bases anything you consume is a drug because it gives your body nutrients to help you perform better.
The only reason I can produce is because miss used cycling and the like that which contribute to negative affects. You must know how to drive before getting behind the wheel, in the sense that there are many newbs not knowing anything about steriods that can harm themselves. So what is the bases of illegalizing steriods??
I think it shouldn't be legalized in the professional leagues yet. Kids and young athletes are impressionable and look up to these incredible players. Some idiot is going to think..
"Hey if A-rod takes steroids and its okay.. maybe I can." Then the kid will end up hurting his body when he pops his first dosage of Dianabol or some other drug.
I've seen kids fuck their shit up with steroids because they thought it was just "take a pill and get huge, strong, and faster." or "Shoot this into your leg and get bigger, stronger, faster." They werent educated enough to know anything about side effects, proper diet, etc.
If we do legalize, There should be a lot more education on steroids and other performance enhancing drugs within school systems. Hell I'm all for the legalization but we just need to look at the big picture.
