Default Whats wrong with using steroids?

If an athlete wants to use them at his own risk, whats the problem? This is the year 2007, not 1907... Are we supposed to continue to live like it is 1907 and not take advantae of scientifc breakthroughs that could enhance our performance?

You just dont take steroids and magically get bigger... You have to be willing to put in the work, the training every day, for hours for it to do any good... So, I say, if you're doing that, you're trying more than anyone else to be the absolute best athlete you can be... nothing wrong with that.

Side effects, both mental and physical. And a guy use legal products vs a steroid head... one has the clear advantage... it's not even close.

taking steroids is cheating. getting stronger and faster in an unnatural way is unhealthy anyway. sports should be played on as level of a field as possible with natural talent being the thing that seperates the stars from the rest of the pack.

plus, your nuts shrink up...unnaturally.

It gives an advantage over those who dont use it and people have died because of it.

Steroids shrink your balls but enlarge your *****.

Because then you'd have players dead by the age of 45 and no league wants that.
You said that people didn't have to take it if they didn't want to but if steroids come into play others will be pressured to use them just to stay competitive. In no time most of the league would be on roids like the WWF(steroid rages and heart problems)

There's nothing wrong with taking steroids. It is a victimless crime.

That being said, they are rather dangerous and have quite a few side effects, so you should be knowledgable about what you're doing.

As long as you don't think cheating is wrong that is. (if the person is playing a sport)

Using a corked bat is a victimless action too, and it's not even a crime, so I guess that makes it ok right?

What's wrong with getting a 20m head start in a 100m dash?

It's cheating.

Default Re: Whats wrong with using steroids?

taking steroids is a slap in the face to those who actually bother to put in the hard work and time, both past and present players. I have no doubt that Barry Bonds has worked extremely hard in the weightroom, but still, it's an unfair competitive advantage. However, that whole era was/it tainted, so basically what you had was juiced up pitchers throwing to juiced up hitters, so in many instances, the two cancelled eachother out.

Being in this type of industry there are it's pro's and cons. The reputation of steroids is everyone will suffer from side affects which is not neccessarily true. It's the people who abuse steroids who are ruining it for everybody. Remember there are thousands of forms of steroids, pro-hormones, and GH. If used properly I don't see it as such an evil thing. Depends what competative level you're on.

I would take your word over some of these blowhards on talk radio. Honestly, these hacks just love to offer their opinion on something that they dont know anything about, as if they are doctors/work in the fitness industry.

However, it's still cheating. If everyone was doing it, then it wouldn't be. Since it's only a select few, those few should be condemmed for their actions.
