Steroids can cause unfair play by causing over strength careers can be jeopardized and those who dont take ped's are naturally good and have talents but those who are bad shame on them if they aren't naturally good shouldn't even be out there on the field ped's can jeopardize their careers
The NFL should not test for any other recreational drugs that have no bearing on performance enhancement, but steroids will greatly change the face of the game. Either everyone will be on steroids or nobody will, and it's best to keep some shred of dignity in the sport while there's still time.
The National Football League does test for steroids, but the league isn't that diligent about tackling this issue. Athletes shouldn't be allowed to use steroids, even due to negligence by the NFL. These players need to be punished for trying to cheat and make a travesty of the game today.
The way I see it, NFL should test for steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. The last time a coach wants is his most valuable player to be taking these kind of drugs. I honestly think the NFL should give all of its played yearly random drug testing just to be safe.
Steroids are dangerous and no one in professional sports should be allowed to use them, especially in the NFL. With the rise of steroid use in other professional sports, officials should start testing NFL players in order to protect the integrity of the sport and the health of the players.
Yes, in the interest of fair play, the NFL should test for steroids. By not testing for steroids, the NFL would be allowing cheating to occur. In addition, the organization would be placing players lives in jeopardy as steroids can have severely negative impacts upon the players that take steroids.
They should, just like every other sport, test for steroids. It would be stupid not to. They should also definitely be testing HGH, but they haven't been until recently. I personally think that all these guys are juicing to some extent, whether the substance is banned or not, they are enhancing their performance.
The NFL should definitely test for steroids. It is a sport that athletes are playing to earn money. The better the player, the more potential they have for a higher salary. It obviously gives someone an unfair advantage if they choose to use drugs over someone who is trying to win the game based on their natural talent as well as their hard work.
Yes of course, I think all professional athletes should get tested every season. Also random drug test too, I do not think it is fair for any professional athlete to be on steroids, it is not fair to all the athlete who train hard daily. It is better to do it now than to do it later when the person is retired.
Although we would think that pro athletes would not be careless enough to use steroids after all the controversies in other sports, it is obvious that there is a strong motivation for devious behavior. It makes sense to test football players and make sure they stay clean. It will help a generally clean sport stay that way.
The NFL already tests for steroids but 10 in every 15 NFL athletes are already taking steroids. If steroids weren't tested for all the athletes would be taking steroids and it would make the game more fair then it is right now. Other drugs like tobacco are legal and they do just as much damage as steroids so why make steroids illegal just because they damage the player. They know what its going to do and they are going to have to live with the consequences
