Pro to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"Nobody doubts that there are a significant amount of premier baseball players who for years have taken steroids, but attendance at baseball games is setting records, TV ratings are up and sales of memorabilia are booming. The people who run sports seem to care, and there's a legitimate reason to care because these athletes are considered role models. But the public, who just want to be entertained? We're like the old Romans who like to see people kill each other - we don't care if these people are ruining their bodies, we just want to see a good performance."
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, or other relevant advanced degrees, heads of professional sports leagues, and US Congress members with significant involvement in, or related to, performance enhancing drugs and sports. [Note: Experts definition varies by site.]
