I think some of these football players need to be tested for drugs. They always seem to do bad when they don't know what's really happening out on the field.

Con

That is their personal business they are doing what they are paid to do entertain and try to make it to the super bowl . So as long as there fulfilling there purposes they shouldn't have to get a drug test.

Most don't make it to the super bowl. I for one don't think it's entertaining watching an athlete act a donkey because he's not in his right mind. I watch it for my entertainment of seeing who can make it off of skill. Personal business or not I think they should be drug tested.

Con

What does giving them a drug test actually prove besides that are not going to have a chance to show their actual skill

True, but it's up to the parents to teach their children. At the end of the day if someone like Mike Wallace or took a drug test and it was positive for drugs would that change the things he achieved or would it change his records. No, it would just show how he deals with life so why Nfl players be drug tested ?

Drug's are illegal (atleast they should be) and they are ruining lives, especially the lives of teenagers and children. They hear them talk about it in that garbage that they call music and see their favorite athltetes and actors doing them and they start to think "hey if they do it, it must be cool and ok", so they start. Then they start to do stupid things and wind up in jail.
