PressBox: Do Drug Testing Programs Help Catch PED Users?

PressBox: Do Drug Testing Programs Help Catch PED Users? | Ethics in Sports | Scoop.it

Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig has made the declaration, repeatedly, that Major League Baseball has the toughest drug testing program in sports, and it will be aggressively enforced. And yet, with the announcement Aug. 5 that MLB was suspending one of the biggest stars in the game, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees, Selig wasn't pointing to a particular failed test, nor a witness to Rodriguez violating the program's extensive procedures.

Kelly Joey Seay's curator insight, September 14, 2014 7:42 PM

This is a major reason I feel that ethics has went down hill due to the importance of making more money. 

Richardson, A. 's curator insight, November 16, 2014 9:06 PM

Money and epic salary and endorsement deals certainly has not enhanced and increased ethics in sports.  With millions of dollars to be earned or lost due to wins, contracts and endorsement money, athletes are playing for much more than the love of the game.  In the words of Jerry Maguire, "show me the money."

Mike Falvo's curator insight, January 19, 2015 4:29 AM

I don't think it has COMPLETELY ruined ethics in sports, but it is definitely a driving force in the decisions made on and off the "field" of sport.

So Why Are Performance-Enhancing Drugs Wrong?

So Why Are Performance-Enhancing Drugs Wrong? | Ethics in Sports | Scoop.it

"ESPN’s Outside the Lines reports that “Major League Baseball will seek to suspend about 20 players connected to the Miami-area clinic at the heart of an ongoing performance-enhancing drug scandal, including Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun. . . . If the suspensions are upheld, the performance-enhancing drug scandal would be the largest in American sports history.”

 

It’s worth thinking through the ethics of performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). If everyone is doing it, is it still wrong? Would they be okay if they were regulated and administered safely? Do our answers say say something about the nature of the game itself? Do they say something about our view of human nature?"

Anthony J. Cameron's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:14 PM

PEDs has tainted MLB and thus has put many records that have been broken in question such as the famous HR derby between Sammy Soso and Mark McGuire of the same year.

Anthony J. Cameron's curator insight, September 10, 2014 4:10 PM

PEDs have tainted the game of baseball. Many of the records that were shattered like the home run record by Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire are in question due to use of PEDs.
