Default Essay due (Ethics in Sports).. need your help with brainstorming!

I have an essay due this week in my ethics class. Been assigned this paper for months now... but what can I say.. I procrastinate more than any other And I hate writing papers. I have an extreme case of writer's block right now and I need your help!

We get to write about any topic we want, as long as it is integrated with ethical situations/dilemmas. I didn't want to write about a subject that bores me to sleep so I chose "Ethics in Pro Sports" as my assignment, because I figured I can write a lot about sports.. well.. I'm drawing blanks here.. help me out!

I'm trying to form my outline for the paper.. some stuff I will write about:

Unfair officiating
The fairness of contracts/salaries
Fair play/cheating
Steroid use/Drug Abuse
Violence in contact sports.
Equity/Affirmative Action - not enough black coaches?

What else can I write about?

Go with steroid abuse. You could use Palmero's testimonial lies at the congressional hearing as a prime example of everything thats wrong with baseball. Or perhaps you could do it on gambling and baseball, i.e. Pete Rose. You should be able to find tons of sources for that topic.

Talk about Bonds inching closer to becoming the GOAT even though he obviously used steroids.
