Renee Anne Shirley's curator insight, January 19, 2014 12:35 PM

IMO athletes believe that the odds of getting caught cheating are significantly less than the rewards to be gained from doping...until we can lessen the odds we will continue to lose the war! In this video Prof Arne Ljungqvist provides insights into some high-profile doping scandals, including the Ben Johnson scandal and Balco affair. 

Donald Magnuson's curator insight, January 19, 2014 2:43 PM

Despite several high profile cases in the last few years, it is clear that athletes are still willing to risk their careers for the artificial gains from doping and steroids.  Stepping outside the rules for a competitive advantage raises ethical questions for the athletes, their trainers and coaches, and even national team officials and politicians, who see athletic success as proving national superiority.

Jason Hammel's curator insight, May 9, 2015 12:43 PM

No matter the punishment professional athletes continue to take the risk with steroids and other performance enhancing drugs

Do you think that a professional sports league should have a diversity rule? If so, what would be the qualifications? Also, do you believe if they don't meet those diversity standards that they should be sued?
TonyEacklesJr's comment, April 21, 2013 10:54 PM
The NBA can not help the fact that they have a league of predominantly black players so I do not believe that they should be sued for that. The lack of diversity in the league should not be a reason they could be sued, many other professional leagues lack diversity as well. Should all of them be sued too?
BrandonTeoZX's curator insight, July 14, 2014 9:44 AM

This is an area that surprises me a little. While it is true that majority of well-known basketball players are blacks, there has to be certain white players in basketball teams that play equally or even better than their black counterparts. But to me, the coaches and managers think that only black players are good at basketball due to most of them having a taller physique.

 

I always thought that sports would be an area where people are not prejudiced against each other, but it seems that I was wrong. Not only do coaches think that black players are better, they also do not give chances to white players who aspire to be basketball players themselves.
