Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"The players of my era were ignorant to the ways of the medical world. Today, everyone knows the dangers of steroids, but players still take them to get an edge. They risk their health at all costs and even hire their own trainers to give them the most scientific dosages...
The message that these players have given our kids and grandkids is to disregard fair play for personal gain. And sadly, the steroid monster is never going to disappear. The chemists are always a step ahead of the steroid police in terms of disguising newly created concoctions.
Cortisone enabled me to bleed a few extra, painful years out of my career, but I can't raise my arm above my shoulder today. The ultimate price for years of injecting performance-enhancing drugs in this era has yet to be determined."
