Why does it matter? Tons of people that used PED are already in the hall of fame, Terry Bradshaw, Ken Griffey Jr. And Shaq, so it does not matter at all. And not all players that used PED used it their whole career. So it does not matter at all.
Not every player that used drugs used them their entire career. Arod was looked at as one of the top players in baseball before he took steroids. He had already put in the work needed to be a great player and one of the best talents in the history of the game should not be left out of the Hall of Fame for bad choices.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
I do not believe athletes who have taken performance-enhancing drugs should be admitted into the Hall of Fame. Leagues deny the use of performance-enhancing drugs and when athletes defy these rules, they are breaking them and cheating. Cheaters should not be rewarded. There talents were the by-product of cheating and there is no reason for them to be in the Hall of Fame.
No, athletes who have taken performance-enhancing drugs should not be admitted in to Halls of Fame. Athletes who have taken such drugs have effectively cheated and robbed themselves and their fans of the glory and respect that earning such under normal rules would have entailed. Thus, they should not be allowed in to Halls of Fame.
If you have taken performance enhancing drugs, you technically cheated and you technically should not be allowed to be admitted into the hall of fame. Only athletes who have not cheated their way in should be allowed to be rewarded. If you take drugs to be better you are ruining the chances for true athletes.
If an athlete has taken performance enhancing drugs, they are giving themselves an unfair advantage over those who only use their natural talents. Cheating like this should not be awarded with entrance into the Hall of Fame. We should focus on those whose natural ability is spectacular, not those who simply chose to take drugs.
Their are people out their that have real talent and don't need drugs but they don't get inducted into the hall of fame but the athletes that used rugs get attention for what something else has done that isn't right and they are breaking the law but other athletes aren't but they don't get rewarded for their talent but law breakers do that makes total sense NOT
Athletes should not be in the hall of fame who have performed in enhancing drugs. These people are taking the opportunity of athletes who have NOT PED. This needs to stop because it is not setting a good example for younger children who dream to play a sport professionally.
Besides this is not even legal to PED. Let's stop athletes who are entering the hall of fame who have performed in enhancing drugs.
First of all, taking performance-enhancing drugs is destroying the integrity of the game. The baseball Hall of Fame is filled with players who represent the meaning of integrity, by sending greats to the Hall of Fame who have taken performance-enhancing drugs is destroying the integrity of baseball. A player of Integrity means they are honest, respectful, compassionate, a leader, greats who took performance-enhancing drugs did not show any of these qualities so therefor they are not a baseball player who represented the integrity you need to have to be admitted into the hall of fame.
People who took drugs are just cheaters. They take away from others who didn't,. Thats what I think. So yea. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie. I like pie.I like pie.
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
