Re: On the declining quality of the ORG
Asking questions isn't accusing.
There are lots of reasons people get better- PEDs is one. Could be BAPIP, could be skill, could be PEDs. If players don't anyone to be suspicious, don't hide in the shadows. Don't give us all a reason to be wary.
And jojo- the mission statement is cool and all, but again an increased performance could be evidence of PEDs.
Baseball players take PEDs. PEDs increase performance. It's not like posters here are accusing them of stealing their stereo-
It's easy to rail on about proof but unfortunately the only way to prove that is to get a blood test, an admission or witness it. The players use that to their advantage, and since they are going to do that in the shadows and not be forthcoming, it leaves it open to speculation.
If you can't follow the logic, I can't help you with that. But given that this is an issue where the type of evidence you are demanding would be hard to come by given the inherent circumstances by which drugs are taken, the questions are legitimate.
The way I see it, players aren't going to cheat in the shadows and then hide behind the laws of discovery when it comes to public opinion.
If you wish to go about it the way of the ostrich, I would recommend some sunscreen.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
