I was watching

and asked myself how was he able to dope undetected for so long?

Was it worth it? He lost all the prizes and was disgraced at the end.

Should we allow athletes to just dope?

  1. there could be a separate league. Dope as much as you want, destroy your body in your mad desire to “win”.

      That would I think be fair. Have a league for those who want to dope and have doctors invest in doping.
      Also run a dope free league where personal effort and practice makes all the difference

      I like this idea a lot. I think it’s workable. It probably isn’t stable long term, but then I’ve gotten to an age when nothing seems permanent anymore. If it works for twenty years, it would be a good enough temporary fix. Then we’d need a new fix.

      These days, I think a lot of life is fixing the little things that break down.

    I think we should allow doping. Virtually all top athletes use something, so it’s no cheating.


    • makagutu says:

      Why must they dope? Why make the body do more than it can naturally manage? Is the desire to win and stay at the top so great to warrant it?

        I am not saying they “must”, but if people want to destroy their bodies – it’s their business, not ours.

        Apparently people want to be supernatural in some way or another. And some seek religion, others doping to achieve this.

        Perhaps it’s and some people have no way to resist such urges.

          What I wonder is, such a guy earns their living from cycling, they can spend hours on end on the saddle practising. That, I think, is all they should do.
          You could be right on them trying to go beyond human

  4. The only way to stop doping is a “one strike and your out permanently” rule. Get caught, and you are banned for life from professional sports. This will never happen. Billions are made on sports. Like someone said above, eliminate the $ and the gambling, and it would slow down if not stop doping. That being said, I don’t care if athletes dope. It’s their business if they wish to gamble with their bodies. Have one league where doping s allowed and one clean, like was stated above. This won’t happen though because the profit from non-doping leagues would be in the negative numbers. It’s the MONEY BABY! It’s all about the money!

      Oh yes, it’s the money and as a powerful motivator, you are sure the non doping events would have zero tv coverage, while in real sense, they would be real test of human endurance

    I think there should be two competitions. One, completely clean. The other, doped to the maximum. Let them take whatever growth hormone, stimulant, whatever, and we can watch it as a kind of freak show.
