  • They still have to have talent.

    They still have to have talent. Even though they used Performance Enhancing Drugs, they still have to have good timing. They have to hit the ball on the barrel of the bat, they have to hit of of pictchers throwing 90+ mile an hour fastballs or some wicked junk, and finally even though they did take Performance Enhancing Drugs they were the best during that time with or without. I'm sure without the PEDs the would still be some of the best players in that time.

  • We can't ignore the best players of the era.

    Bonds, Clemens, McGwire, and Sosa were all by far the best players of their era. Of the 89 players identified in the Mitchell Report, more than half of them weren't any good. There were, undoubtedly, even more stars of the game that simply never got caught cheating. So they get a pass (Piazza, Bagwell, Pudge)? Also, it isn't about whether what they did was ethical. They've already let murderers, racists, and abusers in. So many people don't like Bonds because he wasn't a nice guy. Did that matter when that southern bigot Ty Cobb got the most votes on the very first ballot? Nope. It is time to forget about all the silly, "they were cheaters," nonsense, and let the best players in. The whole system will be a lot simpler that way.

  • Its not cheating, it's taking it to the next level

    Tell that to Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle who have used it. And are in the Hall of Fame. Stop being so naive, you don't train like them you don't have old injuries like them. Let them use and watch a hell of a game. After all is what we pay to see.

  • Yes if they are already there.

    I think if we know they used steroids before they were put in the hall of fame than we should be able to decline them the ability to get in because they violated the rules and should not get rewarded for that. However, if they were already in the hall of fame than we find out about the abuse it should not make a difference.

  • No, they are cheaters!

    They are cheaters and liars and they should not be recognized for their accomplishments. They are a disgrace to the sporting world and a disgrace to their families. Being a professional athlete takes hard work and steroids enhance muscles too much too quickly. The steroid athletes should be banned from the Hall of Fame.

  • Steroid Users in the Hall of Fame

    Steroid users should not be admitted to the Hall of Fame. Sports are all based on the perfection of the game which includes fairness. Placing a steroid user in the Hall of Fame only sends a clear message to all of our youth that one can achieve and still be honored even when they do not follow the rules.

  • Yeah but only the ones that were good before

    Look at bonds a perennial all star many 40 home run seasons probably would of had 500-600 home runs without the steroids he only took them to stay on the top of his game but then he took the steroids and set tons of records that he shouldn't have but he still should be a hall of famer because he was still one of the best around without the steroids same with Roger Clements he won 7 Cy young awards and only took the steroids to stay on top of his already extremely impressive career I mean how many people could come that high on the all time wins list without playing in the early 1900s its just crazy

  • Still need talent

    Steroids don't make you super-human, they enhance your performance by a small margin. These players such as Barry Bonds and A-Rod are great athletes and they were before they took steroids. Barry Bonds while he was still on the Pirates wax a outstanding power hitter. Also A-Rod was one of the best players in the league when he was in Seattle. Both players were not taking steroids at the time. If they did not take steroids they wouldn't have as many home runs but they would have still put up hall of fame numbers throughout their long careers

  • I think they should if they are before the 1987 season

    The reason I say this is because they didn't start testing for steroids until 1987 and didn't suspend anyone from the league until 1989 and didn't do year round testing until 1990. So a bunch of HOF's before they started testing could've taken steroids so you don't really know how many HOF's could have taken steroids before they started testing.

  • Cuz they good.

    Cuz they good. They so good cuz they played good. They played good cuz they was so good. The only reason they good cuz they played good. The only reason they played good cuz they was good. I dont actually have an opinion on this matter. They should all quit cuz they bad.

  • Heck to the no!!!

    People its cheating!!! Cheaters should not be allowed!!! They aint cool bro!! It can be dangerous!! It can also make you sick and die!!!! My friend Hector died from an over dose of steroids!! I'm very sad and i miss him. People should get counseling for their loses.
    This is fire

  • Players should not be allowed.

    It is cheating and dangerous to other players and to their own body. Steroids can mess with emotions and cause fights. They also don't show the true talent that a player has. It is also more expensive to by steroids and take them then play to your best ability.
    Steroids are DA WORST

  • No, they obviously shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame.

    Yes, their dominant play has been recognized but cheating is cheating. Doing someone to boost and tamper with your performance is cheating. Cheating is not allowed in a lot of events, especially sports. If you do something like cheating, or stealing lead to consequences. Let's say the steroids didn't even affect your game play. It doesn't matter. You TRIED to cheat. It doesn't matter if you succeed or not. Look on the bright side. You don't have to be in the Hall of Fame to be recognized as a really talented athlete.

  • No it is not fair!!

    It is just not fair for the other athletes using their natural strength. I really do not think that drug users belong in the hall of fame because thee hall of fame is for honest athletes only. The hall of fame is for real shining stars. For people we can look up to.

  • Steroid users should not be admitted to hall of fame

    Steroid users are plain cheaters. We respect them for working hard and being great the sport that they are doing. But if they cheat to get to the point where they are, they do not deserve respect for not getting to the hall of fame the right way. It takes hard work, but they substitute it by cheating.

  • There doo doo heads who like D!!!

    Steroid users corrupt the whole idea of competitive sports by attempting to give themselves a beneficial edge over other players. The Hall of Fame recognizes superior achievement of an athlete and is not about the athlete's ability or willingness to alter his performance by using drugs. It may be exciting to watch a steroid user beat records set in the past, but it is just not fair, and I don't know how they can morally take credit for something when it was achieved by a form of cheating.

  • PED users had an unfair advantage. Lying and cheating.

    PED users were able to compete at an advantage against an environment lacking PEDs. It was easier for the PEDs to standout and achieve grand statistics. Pete Rose is significantly more worthy the Hall of Fame. Hope he is voted in while he is alive to enjoy some of it. I'm sure he is repentant. Pete never cheated (unfortunately he did lie, but he earned his stats). PED users not only cheat but they also lie by deception to the public as they achieve superior results. Take down all the home run records from PED users.

  • They Shouldn't Get In

    Steroid users should not be allowed in the Hall of Fame. The sport the athlete plays does not matter. Athletes that cheat the game should not be praised or allowed to be part of an elite group. Letting steroid users in is saying that cheating is okay as long as you play very well. That is wrong,

  • No steroid users should not be in the Hall of Fame.

    I think anyone who uses steroids should be required to give back all championship rings and trophies. They should definitely not get inducted in the Hall Of Fame, it is not fair to athletes who have achieved that title without any drugs. We need to make examples out of people who use steroids in sports.

  • No, steroid users corrupt the whole system.

    Steroid users corrupt the whole idea of competitive sports by attempting to give themselves a beneficial edge over other players. The Hall of Fame recognizes superior achievement of an athlete and is not about the athlete's ability or willingness to alter his performance by using drugs.
