Steroids. For years steroids have been in the spotlight in the sports world, especially in that horribly boring sport Baseball. Despite promoting steroid use for years, the MLB has been on a witch hunt to weed out any users now that the public says it should be bad. Way to go baseball. Way to go.
Steroids are said to give an athlete a performance edge, making him or her faster, stronger and better than the competition. You know, if you ignore the shrinking ball size and the incredible damage it does to your kidneys.
Luckily steroids do not seem to be as prevalent in our beloved NHL but that could just be because hockey hasn't been in the spotlight for quite some time. There have been a few known cases in the NFL and even a few in the NBA so the problem is not just specific to baseball.
Is it an issue of accountability with the players? Is it an issue where players are told they need to be chemically enhanced to compete?
Or could the reason be more.....sinister.....
