The Biogenesis PEDs scandal explained | Sports Ethics | Scoop.it
MLB: Biogenesis is the latest performance enhancing drugs scandal to hit Major League Baseball. Who are the key players and what are they alleged to have done?
Taylor Berg's insight:

Tony Bosch is one of the most popular names now in baseball and he didn't even play the game. No he played in a big role of getting many players in trouble and suspended for using steroids. Not only was he the one that gave them the steroids he is also the one that sold them out and made their lives even worse. Yes the players should have known better but in reality everyonesethics is questioned in this scandal.

Steroid use by athletes is a form of cheating.
Taylor Berg's insight:

A lot of athletes say that nobody should care if I'm taking steroids in only affects me so why should anyone else care. Well that's when we see proffesional ethics compromise with personal ethics. An individual may think that steroids are ok but as a whole in the society we seem that as bad and as cheating if you use them in sports.

Taylor Berg's insight:

Lance Armstrong is a big reason why athletes ethics get questioned a lot. We all that Lance Armstrong was this great story of a man that beat cancer (don't get me wrong still a great person) and went above and beyond and won the tour de france 7 times in a row. Well that was all taken away because he was apparently "doping". Now we question every great athlete whether they are taking drugs or not.
