Here's a discussion on the subject from a CBC Radio program called The Current: Leaked IAAF Files Rekindle Argument to Legalize Doping in Sport See also: http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/wada-to-investigate-new-doping-allegations-in-athletics-1.3177147 "WADA President Craig Reedie said Sunday he was surprised by the scale of the allegations, including that one-third of medals in endurance races at the Olympics and world championships over a 10-year period were won by athletes who recorded suspicious doping tests...." "Reedie stressed the allegations were unproven and athletes are assumed innocent until found guilty." It's not only this program but a number of other influences which have changed my mind and convinced me it might be better to make them legal altogether than to try to stamp them out. The labs creating the drugs are always ahead of the people looking for ways to detect them. Even GSP said you only get caught if you are dumb or very disorganized (at least under the testing regime in place when he was still fighting.) I agree with Rogan that to train all these different disciplines multiple times per day every day of the week, bodies just break down and PEDs are the only way to make it possible to train like that without getting injured constantly. The anti PED guy makes the argument the cheaters are in the minority when there is evidence that the opposite is true, it looks like most athletes are using. The only issue I see is that, just like equipment technology and training facilities, PEDs will most benefit those who have the money to spend on R&D. Poorer people will suffer huge disadvantages, but then, they do already. It would be better than encouraging a culture of corruption and coverup of PED use in sports due to all the money involved. Sadly, the anti-PED guy doesn't do his credibility any favours by referring to "the MMA" when he obviously intends to refer to the UFC but in fairness, the discussion was more generally about PEDs in all sports. I was interested to hear that GSP's stance about staying out until things improve has gained traction outside MMA, at least in Canada, but it remains to be seen whether the UFC's new PED policy will serve its intended purpose. More likely, it will result in only the better paid athletes being able to afford more complex doping bolstering the burgeoning fighter underclass that the UFC is cultivating in their effort to go global. What do you think?
