The records are clear in describing the firm's real business: selling performance-enhancing drugs, from human growth hormone (HGH) to testosterone to anabolic steroids. Interviews with six customers and two former ...
Nik Gartner's insight:

Here is an article with questionable ethics on both sides of the coin, the athlete and the supplier.  The athlete wants to get farther in the stats book and the supplier wants a fatter wallet, it doean't matter the methods for obtaining these goals.

Four Tide freshmen suspended after arrests

Nik Gartner's insight:

This isn't a scandal about bribery or doping, this is about ehtics and morals.  4 players from the Alabama Crimson Tide are suspended indefinitely after assaulting two students and robbing them.  What is wrong with kids now a days?

North Korea goes miniature, Lewis Black looks to the real gun control experts, and Mike Piazza talks baseball, steroids, and his book, "Long Shot."
Nik Gartner's insight:

This is the entire episode of The Daily show with John Stewart but it has an interesting interview with former catcher Mike Piazza and performance enhancing drugs.  (The interview with Mike Piazza start around 15 minutes into the video.  Sorry, I could not find a link for just the interview itself)

The Sports Guy on performance-enhancing drugs - Grantland

The Sports Guy on performance-enhancing drugs - Grantland | Ethics in sports: What is happening? | Scoop.it
If everyone is secretly suspicious of so many athletic achievements in the 21st century, why aren't we talking about it?
Nik Gartner's insight:

This is a great article that delivers true hard facts and also the writers perception on the issues of performance enhancing drugs in sports.  I think it is interesting because it is from an insider who writes for ESPN so they have a more in depth insight to behind the scenes activity that the normal audience don't usually see.  I think it is a great piece because it touches on so many different sports and so many different aspects of doping in professional sports.

The sporting community at large watched in disbelief as the story unfolded to the extent, and apparent ease, these performance enhancing drugs were both distributed and accepted as part of the professional cycling scene.

Very in depth article.  I found this very informative and also found interesting that there are certain athletes that will try drugs that aren't even approved for human use yet!!!

Nik Gartner's insight:

The use of performance enhancing drugs in Australia seems to be rare, but if you are under investigation you can still play and participate in one of the bigger games of the league.  That is what I am gathering from this article.  Another interesting part of this article is the lack of communication that seems to be going on between the league and the coaches and the players.

Corruption and match-fixing in international soccer are far more organized and widespread than previously known and reach to the very upper echelons of the world’s most popular sport, European...
Nik Gartner's insight:

An international investigation by EUROPOL is underway for corruption, match-fixing, bribing, and coercing players, refs, and other officials in huge competitions such as UEFA Champions League, World Cup qualifying matches and qualifying games for the European championship.  It is sad to see this sort of thing happening in something so pure and so entertaining as soccer.

Rafael Nadal says he wants drug cheats caught | Ethics in sports: What is happening? | Scoop.it
Nadal says testing for performance-enhancing drugs in sport should strike a balance between catching the cheats and respecting the athletes. (Rafael Nadal says he wants drug cheats caught: Nadal says testing for performance-enhancing drugs in spo...
Nik Gartner's insight:

I like this article because I think it represents how a lot of people feel.  Yes, we know there are cheaters.  Yes, we can catch them through testing.  But there is a fine line between testing for doping and going to the point of embarrassing the athletes or unfairly testing one person more than another.  I like his idea about making it known how many times an athlete is tested.
