  • Athletes should be tested

    Its is extremely unfair to those who are not using drugs. Not only that it is extremely bad for their health and in some cases it can lead to death. While it can be an invasion of privacy if its between the person being tested, their parents (if they are underage) and the doctor I do t see the problem

  • Athletes using drugs is bad for the kids!

    Children now a days look up to pro athletes and if we their are athletes using drugs, the children will think its OK to take some too. We can still try and stop this from coming but only if we get them to take drug-tests and maybe just maybe we might be able to help the kids to see its wrong!-Raylinn.P

  • It is unfair

    It is unfair to the athletes that don't use drugs because, it enhances performance and the other athletes are playing fair while, other players are cheating. So , I think athletes should be tested because it is unfair and actually unhealthy for the players that use it, so I think they should be tested.

  • They're being paid so much, they NEED to work for it!

    As most of us are viewers, we should ask ourselves if we really want to spend our paychecks on merchandise starring drugs users/dopers/CHEATERS. Our kids will grow up worshipping and wanting to follow the example of players and it's always disappointing to be let down by your idol. What bugs me most is that they're already making a lot of money, some guaranteed a millionaire dollar contract even if they're injured tomorrow and are never able to play ever again! We want to make it even easier for them to get cash?

  • Athletes should be drug tested to keep the game fair.

    Drugs are becoming more serious in the health of athletes but yet they continue to take them. There needs to be harsher punishments put in place to keep athletes from taking steroids. Not only is it a major health concern but it is also a big deal on the playing field. Fans believe that on a given day it is the team that is the best that will come out on top and when athletes take steroids they are ruining the game and how it is sup post to be played.

  • Athletes should be natural.

    Athletes should not use drugs to make them better. They should work hard and practice instead. When you have people that start using performance enhancing drugs, more people follow and use more. It goes up and up and up and next thing you know the athletes are all dying and sick from drug abuse.

  • Its a good idea

    It is really unfair to all of the other atheletes in the sport that work hard for their skills. Also it is really bad for you to use drugs. Later in life you could make it into the hall of fame in your sport and people would not agree with you that you made it or not. That is why they should get tested.

  • They need to be drug tested

    They should be drug tested because it is not fair to the other athletes that work hard to get good. Also drugs are illegal and can cause serious problems for teens. It will effect them in the future. If they start drugs now they might become regular users. Make them take a drug test

  • Athletes should be drug tested.

    The increased use of performance enhancing drugs in recent years threatens to damage professional sports even further. We need to test all professional athletes in order to make sure they are not cheating. In this way, we can protect the integrity of our national sports and set a good example for the youth.

  • Keeping it fair

    If there is no drug testing then basically drugs are legalised in sport and it would become who has the most money to buy and research into the best drugs. It won't be down to who works the hardest and has the most talent/ability or work ethic it will be based on who knows their drugs best. Not to mention how unsafe and risky it is to take drugs with the numerous side affects present. Why legalise drugs in sport when it is unsafe, unfair and makes the game not interesting. What happens to all those record holders who worked hard and fair at claiming the record for their chosen sport to then be beaten by technology/drug enhancements not raw performance... DRUG TESTING IS A MUST.

  • Not all steroids are bad.

    Nowadays, many athletes use different drugs to keep up their performance. Many people feel that all drugs are bad, but that is not always the case. Doctors have created drugs that can help the body without destroying the nutrients we need. Athletes using drugs is not a major problem, yes to the not very smart people taking the wrong ones yes. Though if you are smart enough you can go to a wellness store and find products to help you lose weight or gain strength. You don't have to kill your body to be perfect or at least the way you would like to be, talk to a wellness coach or your doctor.

  • Do you really want this?

    Do you want a sport where everyone is taking performance enhancing drugs? Everyone will try to out-do their opponent and the result will be a violent sport much unlike we know today. If players will not be tested this will happen quickly. There are also many side effects of them.

  • Don't drug test, allow for innovation.

    We should be allowing ALL varieties of human augmentation for our sports. Steroids, doping, spring-loaded carbon fiber artificial feet, and whatever else man discovers. Sports should be more than just showcasing the freaks of every generation, they should be about showcasing the sum total of human physical innovation, and giving the small tribes which we have compete some individual stake in figuring out the best way to augment the human animal. Otherwise, sports are just an exercise in social and biological Darwinism, something that us humans figured out is a failed concept compared to what we have become.

  • YES for better living through chemistry.

  • Where is the line drawn?

    Athletes in various competition take numerous substances to enhance their performance. The governing bodies of those groups have deemed certain substances to be illegal and we, as a society, view steroids as an improper advantage. I question the line sports agencies has decided to draw because it is unknown to the public and only serves to demonize players that, in many sports, risk their lives to a degree in order for entertainment. Why can't a player consult a doctor, have the doctor monitor steroid use, and enhance performance within healthy levels? Doctors use steroids to help patients with illnesses and individuals who are outside the governing bodies of the main sports organizations use steroids responsibly. Why then do we limit performance when performance can be increased safely and without serious adverse effects?

  • There gonna do it anyways probably

    Atheletes r suppose to be tested for steroids. How ever some manage to beat the system. Like A-rod for instance if he had kept quiet and not admitted to using steroids he would of probably never of got caught. Im sure many great athletes have use steroids but have never got caught especially football players. Nobody gets that big naturally and look at baseball using steroids has become a critcal part of the game for must hitters. There choosing to use and ruin there bodies in the long run. If they want to do that they should be able to
