This is because no one stood up and tried to put an end to it even though they knew that it was wrong. This all begins with the commissioner, who is the leader. He should have set the example that using steroids was wrong and fought to implement strong rules against it from the start. The league did not have proper testing even when they knew that the use of steroids was an issue. Without rewards to those who did not use steroids it sent a message that players could use them and would not be severely punished.
Nick Labowitz June 20, 2012 Paper #2 A Community Issue The Cheat of Looking Good Steroids can make you the man you have always dreamed; it can defy genetics and is simply a cheat code for anybody builder. Genetics determine what our body types will be and what we have a disposition to in our physical appearance. The point of this paper is that body builders want to alter their physical shape and if genetics interfere, steroids may help them to change their physical selves. Steroids are illegal drugs and should not be used by any group of people. Drug use is a thing that affects every community in one way or another.
They are: new pressures, bigger rewards for winning, temptation, and trickle-down corruption. Each one of these pitfalls has led to cheating in all arenas of business and can especially be seen in the use of steroids by athletes. The first pitfall that leads to cheating according to Callahan is new pressures. As Callahan says, “[New pressures] in today’s competitive economy, where success and job security can’t be taken for granted, it’s increasingly tempting to leave your ethics at home” (Callahan 20). This is especially true in sports.
The illegal drugs are killing the inside of the player’s body not ever other player out there that is playing the game. Cheaters should not be rewarded for not playing fairly. According to CBS NEW YORK, "I will not vote for any player connected with steroid use, because I believe cheaters should not be rewarded with the sport’s highest honor," Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle said in an e-mail. I agree with Susan. They do not deserve the honor to have that reward when they have a high opportunity to be more successful than the other players.
In high schools across the United States, many people are using drugs and being caught using drugs. In addition these people influence their peers and other people around them. In these high schools, some of the people influenced by this illegal activity are sports players who think that by using that one day they might make it into the major leagues or at least the minor leagues. One of the sports that is most affected by steroid usage in the US is baseball. Steroids in baseball are wrong because it ruins the games reputation, and it negatively influences the athlete's health.
It’s hard to argue with logic; “Home runs are fun and exciting….Steroid-enhanced athletes hit more home runs” (72). The problem with this ideology however, is that steroids do boost an athlete’s athletic ability and potential to levels that are nearly impossible to achieve without. Taking steroids is viewed by the majority of the general population, as cheating. Therefore, allowing these steroid-enhanced athletes into the hall of fame and/or validating their records and achievements without an asterisk placed beside them would destroy the integrity and strong historical significance of the game. It is confusing to many people however, how the Hall of Fame, which houses most of the game’s greatest players, can exclude the games record holder as far as homeruns in a season and career are concerned.
Clyde Anderson Anderson 1 Professor Valdes ENG 103 May 8th, 2014 Steroids in Major League Baseball In the world of professional sports, many athletes use performance enhancing drugs (PED) to become better players. Athletes use performance enhancing drugs to either get better, heal from injuries, become huge people or just because it’s the “IN” thing that everyone else is using. Steroids have been in sports for the better part of four decades but each league or sports have their implications on PED’s. For instance, The MLB has a random drug testing policy and is able to give suspensions to anyone who is caught having a positive testing of any illegal drugs. Many players have taken PED’s but one name that sticks out to this subject
Sylvia Etim Instructor Tim Nelson English 1013 (012) 2 April 2015 The Pressure of the Public Sometimes people are oppressed into doing what they know that is wrong. The essay “We, the Public, Place the Best Athletes on Pedestals” by William Moller talks about how most athletes and students use performance enhancing drugs in order to achieve their goals. In his essay, Moller defends the athletes by arguing that the major reason they use the steroids is because of the pressure being put on them from the public and the desire to live up to their expectations. Moller uses an essential strategy at the beginning of his essay by using his personal experience to make readers to understand his view of point. He also
You should have to pay for what every you do in sports, but the cost should not be with your life. The Sport Council has set a rule that all athletes in professional sport should be tested for drugs. To prevent them from taking drug that has been banned or any other form of drugs. As stated MacAuley (1996) the Sports Council offers an information system so that athletes may find out about various agents and help protect themselves against the inadvertent use of a banned substance, but not only banned be any form of enhancements. Ethically, what are the consequences for using these form of performance- enhancement?
Medically, anabolic steroids are available by prescription. Due to the abuse of anabolic steroids for athletic purposes along with the long term negative effects, they were banned in the United States in 1973. As will all illegal drugs this does not prevent people from getting a hold of them. Many private gym owners are involved in selling
