Who still thinks PEDs are bad?

Why do people still pretend to be shocked when athletes are busted for PEDs? Grow up, its their job. There's no going back to the days before PEDs existed, might as well just deal with it.

Spare me the "moral" angle, retards. Professionals spend almost every waking moment trying to be the best at whichever sport they're working towards being the best at, why wouldn't they juice? You can keep acting outraged/shocked at athletes getting busted or you could just be realistic about it: there's no putting the worms back inside the can.

The only reason people even pretend to be upset about it all boils down to "The Children!1". After all, kids might as well start taking PEDs in high school if they're serious about being pro athletes and that just rubs nanny state parents the wrong way.

If pro sports would just accept the FACT that athletes are going to juice they could have their team physicians administer/monitor PED levels to make sure there was a level playing field. Blood tests, urine tests - juice to the maximum safe levels so we could do away with this facade of "natural" ability.

Pretend to be morally outraged all you want, your favorite fighter already does it as well as all the players on your favorite football team. Deny it all you want. Say "Nuh Uh, not ________!!!!". You sound like a child. Wake up people, accept it, and lets level the playing field for real; for once and for all...

Definitely quite Dickish in your approach, but I have felt similar for quite some time, but for different reasons.

I do feel like they should be allowed to be used under strict supervision and closely monitored. The goal of use shouldn't be to get all jacked up, but rather to aid in recovery to keep these guys able to make it in the gym and become the best they can be at their craft and provide for their families.

I'm sure most have seen this by now, but it is a good counter point to all of the anti-PED rhetoric that is thrown around:

Here is another interesting article. Shows a crazy new type of "HGH" like substance from deer antler fuzz that is all natural and nearly impossible to detect. Not sure why this should be illegal if all it does it help your body recover and streagthen it's tissues.

THe problem is two-fold.

One, it creates a precedent in using illegal substances. Even things like Heroin and Cocaine have their uses that have a positive effect with little to no side effects if taken in certain ways and used properly. Where do you draw the line? Steroids are ok, but using something else isn't?

Also, the side effects aren't entirely known with a lot of the current steroids out there. You can say "Oh, there has to be a caveat that they take them under a strict program governed by a doctor". The loophole there is that a "doctor" can perscribe them in a certain way so that the tests show a little in the system, but in actuality the athlete is smothering their pancakes with steroid syrup. Then we're back at square one (where they're cycling using an illegal amount to pass the tests).

Not to mention the effect it will have on children who look up to these guys (steroid use is already prevelant in high schools) and the competitive disadvantage it presents to otherwise already talented fighters who don't have the resources to use PEDs.
