Should athletes who have taken performance-enhancing drugs be admitted into the Hall of Fame?

  • They do deserve to be put in there.

    Look at the Boss and Alex Rodriguez and what they did. Both were caught and both were suspended. When they returned they were even better. Don't look at what happened while taking drugs but lets look at what they did before. The Boss was known as the best linebacker in college during his time in college. Had more tackles than some players combined just in one game. Rodriguez was hated because he was an outstanding player. Everyone loved him until he did steroids and then they just turned on him. Now you ask yourself why they were amazed and excited everytime he stepped to the plate or made a play at third before doing steroids. So instead of talking about all the bad athletes do and say our kids are looking up to them, how about we quit putting it all over the web where in today's world everyone knows about it and we quit talking about it around our kids. Talk about the good stuff they did.

  • They didnt work hard for nothing.

    Yes because they did not work hard for nothing. They are adults already they can do what they want. Yeah you guys say your kids look up to some of them but they just cant see the bad side of them and the drugs they do. Kids should see there parents as role modelz. I am only a junior and my sister looks up to me but i tell her what the drugs can do to you so she does not end up like me but she looks up to me.

  • Some have earned it!

    Basically, most of the atheletes who have used P.E.D have been chewed up and spat out even by there own city that they play for. Now, dont get me wrong, it is very wrong to take drugs to make you better at a sport. But lets remember what hard work it took to get them where they are. Therefor, they should be aloud in the hall!

  • No because that is cheating

    If they get by with that then they will just do it again.They will never learn so they will ruin there life's by doing that.Plus it won't be a real reward because it wasn't them it was the drug.So if they don't do it right the first time then it won't fill right.

  • PED Users In the Hall of Fame

    PED users should be allowed into the Hall of Fame under limited circumstances. Some individuals are worthy of the Hall, even with their PED use taken into consideration. However, these athletes deserve a little extra scrutiny to determine whether PED use made them a marginal Hall of Famer or whether they belonged even without the PED usage.

  • It is illigal

    Well first of all, its cheating and its not natural so why should they be able to do it? And if its illigal they should be put in jail instead of the hall of fame. Also its unfair to other players who dont use the drugs because they have to do it natually

  • It aint showing the example to your kids

    Athletes are a big thing for kids. If they think that being dope his nice and we they are going to be on the track of their hero they are going to get dope. And at that point sports his gonna suck bad. . . . . . , .

  • ITs not right

    People who give forth the effort to be good and not use drugs should be admitted into the hall of fame. If you give someone who has been using them for sometime in their career but the drug just became illegal than thats a different story. Then they should be able to be in the hall of fame as long as they don't continue to use them

  • Do we want our children to look up to people who have abused drugs?

    Now, I am only 12, and don't have kids, but I do have a little brother. I would never want him taking drugs and abusing his body. The bible says that our body is the temple of the holy spirit. We shouldn't abuse the temple for our Lord Jesus Christ, neither should our kids.

  • Its an unfair advantage

    PEDS are an unfair advantage. Although the user still has to put in the work to advance his/her physical abilities, the end results are far better then that of an athlete who did it naturally. Its unfair to all athletes who work hard day in and day out to further themselves without the help of performance enhancing drugs

  • Pie tastes good

    It has cream, pumpkins, and crusts. Also, it can be had with milk or ice cream flavors, preferably vanilla. Also, there are many different flavors like blueberry, strawberry, key lime, and even chocolate. Homemade pie is the greatest though. Also, players who have used performance enhancing drugs should not be admitted into halls of fame.

  • They don't deserve to be put in there.

    There should be no explanation for this because, they take drugs, and they get in the hall of fame. NO, the hall of fame is used for people that had broken a sport record or made a new one, people that were put in the hall of fame without the use of drugs had practiced all their life, and that all the hard work they put into it had paid off, people that took drugs shouldn't be even in the hall of fame, they shouldn't take one step in the hall of fame if they take drugs. So to all people that did drugs and that are in the hall of fame, well what I have to say is take down their picture and through it away.

  • No, it's for honorable athletes.

    Honorable athletes are the ones supposed to be honored in the Hall of Fame. Dishonorable means winning with an unfair advantage that no one knows about. Those who have taken performance enhancing drugs have made that unfair stance and so do not deserve admittance to this honorable and honored tradition.

  • Druggies should never be recognized.

    There is no reason for someone who has had their accomplishments courtesy of what's in a needle to be listed in any Hall of Fame. Sports are about natural ability, being your best physically. If you can't do that without drugs, you are not worthy of playing in the first place, because you're a cheater.

  • Bar the drug abusers.

    I think that we should try to maintain the integrity that is intrinsically part of playing professional sports. I think that all drug abusers should be barred from the Hall of Fame, no questions asked. We should at least maintain a veneer of integrity about the hall of our sport heroes.
