Sports Dealing with Steroids

Essay by: jgerard

Summary

Thanks to the modern day steroids, sports have taken a huge hit on their popularity and integrity. Also, they have taught kids and others that taking steroids is ok. However, taking steroids is proven to do terrible things to both males and females. Ever since the 1940’s when they were dubbed America’s next big thing, all they have done is wreaked havoc on America’s sports. Starting with the 1997 home run race with McGuire and Sosa, to the deaths of athletes, to still continuing today, steroids are ruining sports. Even though we have tough steroid bans in both the NFL and MLB, players are still taking them and getting away with it. Due to the overwork that the players that don’t take the steroids have to do to keep up with the cheaters, many people are losing there lives every season. The bottom line is, Steroids aren’t just throwing off the record books, they’re also teaching the little ones that look up to them as role models, that taking steroids is ok to do and that you have to take them to be great.
