  • Its not fair

    Yes, in my opinion, Athletes that use performance enhancing drugs gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. Because they are not using their natural ability they are using foreign products to enhance their performance and make them play better and that not fair to the other players because then one player in superior

  • It is unfair to use PEDs during any sports.

    Yes, it is certainly unfair to use PEDs when playing sports at any time. People use it to get the field leaning to their favor. In that case, the users are not even relying on their skills and long effort devoted practice. Using PEDs can put one onto an effortless win on the field withouth even actually trying. Therefore, it IS an unfair advantage to those who use PEDs.

  • Yes, it is unfair.

    Competition is healthy and fun to watch when everyone is starting from an equal place and honing their strength and ability by practice. When some are taking performance enhancing drugs and others are not doing that, there is no longer equality. There is an unfair advantage, especially when these drugs are not acknowledged.

  • Yes they do.

    The whole reason that they are called "performance enhancing drugs" is because they enhance performance. So, yes this would be an unfair advantage. Athletes who are not using these drugs, may not ever have the same performance as someone who is. Also, the person using the drug probably wouldn't have the abilities they do without the drug.

  • Yes they gain an unfair advantage.

    Anyone using a performance enhancing drug is automatically getting an unfair advantage in the field they are competing in, including sports. If it makes it so they are playing better then they actually would without it, it is unfair to the other players fallowing the rules and not using it.

  • Sad, but true.

    They are called Performance Enhancing Drugs for a reason, and clearly they do their job. I feel it does give athletes a certain "extra push" that could definitely fall into the general catergory of unfair. Luckily, they have really started to crack down on the drug use is sports these days.

  • No, athletes do not gain an unfair advantage by using Performance Enchancing Drugs.

    The majority of all professional athletes are using Performance Enhancing Drugs. The widespread use of these drugs has eliminated any advantage they could have provided. It may be true that they are required to compete at the highest level, but if everyone is using the same things then there is no advantage to have used them.

  • Yes, Athletes Gain an Unfair Advantage.

    Yes, in my opinion, Athletes that use performance enhancing drugs gain an unfair advantage over their opponents. Performance enhancing drugs have a detrimental effect, not only on the person who uses them, but on the sport as a whole. If one person starts using them, and starts winning, it creates a chain reaction in which other athletes need to use drugs just to stay competitive.

Niggers fight with seagulls for food on the board walk. Broke dumb fuck niggers suck a cock sick mother loving fat girl chasing nasty niggers. Eat your chicken

    First off, PEDs "even out the playing field"- giving less naturally privileged athletes a more fair chance. Take swimmers for example. According to The Washington Post, "A big body transforms a capable swimmer into a formidable one. A lengthy torso acts like the hull of a boat. Long arms provide more leverage to shovel water out of the way." So what does that mean for smaller swimmers- such as Natalie Coughlin, who's only five foot eight- if they were to go up against taller ones- such as Missy Franklin, who's six foot two? If we were to take skill out of the equation, Franklin would no doubt win against Coughlin. Why? Simply because she was born a specific way. If PEDs were to be regulated and amounts be catered to each athletes specific disadvantages and body size, we would no longer wonder if an athlete won simply because of their evolutionary advantages, or because they truly had the skill. We would be seeing the absolute peak of human ability! "Not only would the playing field suddenly be even for all players, it would be at a higher level," says Forbes Magazine.

    Secondly, when issued correctly, the health issues- that are greatly exaggerated by the public- are diminished. "The incidence of muscle dysmorphia is increasing,..(contd)... Therapy and medication do work. The primary issue is identifying the disorder, because it does not present like other psychobehavioral conditions such as anorexia or bulimia nervosa. Not only do patients see themselves as healthy, most look very healthy from an outward perspective." (via The US National Library of Medicine) PEDs can be used to combat conditions such as muscle dysmorphia. Patients will begin to see results much quicker than without the use of PEDs, therefor the risk of suicide or self harm is decreased. The article goes on to say how a rising number of athletes today suffer from muscle dysmorphia and other mental conditions that hinge on appearance. Also, medical marijuana is used for cancer patients although illegal in most states for recreational use, and the use of it is monitored by doctors and specialists; so why wouldn't we do that with PEDs? Use could be monitored by doctors and other medical professionals, therefor symptoms of abuse or wrongful administration could be spotted and treated and those wishing to quit wouldn’t die from withdrawal symptoms, much like many people every year do.

    I don’t think that athletes gain an unfair advantage by
    using performance enhancing drugs. I
    believe successful athletes have the right combination of talent and
    knowledge. Even if these athletes take
    all the drugs in the world, it won’t do any good if they don’t know what to do
    in order to win games.
