Chris Cochrane Biography

Title:
Sports columnist with the Chronicle Herald
Position:
Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
Reasoning:

“Baseball players accused of steroid use have created a lengthy list of colourful defences, ranging from naivety to outright denial, to combat the accusations…

Forget about what method they chose to defend their actions. Whether it was to stonewall, to be evasive or even to admit guilt in an attempt to gain sympathy, none of these tactics change the fact that they cheated.”

“Keep Them Out of Baseball’s Hall of Fame,” Chronicle Herald, Feb. 11, 2009
