Glenn Darby Biography

Title:
Sports editor at Fox News
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
Reasoning:

“Doctors will tell me that steroids are dangerous. Acne and ‘roid rage’ are not the only side-effects. Tumors and jaundice are always a possibility, and there is death. Of course, that doesn’t stop doctors from prescribing them for patients for things ranging from an infection all the way up to cancer. They are hormones and, just like anything else, are bad when used too much. So why not control it?

If a baseball player has a doctor who says it is okay for them to use steroids, who is MLB to stop them? Those who buy it without a prescription (or obtain prescriptions from vets and other weird doctors) should be prosecuted by the law and not MLB. Other than that, let the doctors continue to make us better athletes. They’ve been doing it forever. No sense in stopping now.”
