Greg Skidmore, JD Biography

Title:
Founder and contributor of the Sports Law Blog
Position:
Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
Reasoning:

“Steroid abuse has been shown to have horrible consequences, even leading to serious illness and death, and the negative effects of newer drugs are not even known. Players may be leveraging their long-term health for current glory…

For the long-term good of both the players and the game, all of the interested parties should step forward to put an end to this epidemic.”
