Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"When we can't prove anyone guilty [of using performance-enhancing drugs] until they finally are caught, by some incredible entrapment, then everyone is guilty. These dummies like [Andre] Dawson and the rest of these players don't seem to get this. They keep saying, I'm not going to judge anybody, I don't know what anybody else on the team does, that's not for me to say. But you know what? It is for you to say. You should get up in the locker room, you should get up somewhere and scream to everybody, 'If any of you guys are out there pumping up with juice with HGH with needles all over the place, I don't want you on my team. You're bringing down the entire sport.' And Bud Selig and all of his shrugging like 'Gee I don't know what we can do.' We have known about this...for not just five years or ten years or fifteen or twenty. This thing has been building for thirty or forty years...I remember in the late 60's there were NFL [National Football League] teams that were already on steroids."
