Default Steroids and wrestling.....

an article in Friday's USA today was very poignant in the argument about steroids and wrestling.....I put the link in General for the article, and I think you guys should read it.....has some very interesting stuff in it.....

anyway, the point of the thread is this.....

since the athletes that are involved in wrestling have expectations from the fans, do you feel it is okay for them to use performance enhancing drugs to attempt to "get ahead" in the business?

2nd part of the question.....do you believe it to be a major factor.....ie, are there many guys that do 'roids in the business.....

3rd part.....how should they police the problem if there is one?....

The problem is, bosses won't police it. It's the same shtick MLB is using now "The rules are unenforcable. These supliments are legal." But it boils down to money. Fans expect big bulky wrestlers, and fans= money.

Well I Mean As Much As Some Fans Would Like To Lump Wrestling In With Other Sports, The Simple Fact Is Wrestling Is An Entirely Different Beast...

There Is No Union, In Order To Survive In Wrestling, You Have To Be Able To Compete On A Daily Basis And Face The Rigours Of Wrestling Day In And Day Out...Much Like Del Wilkes, Jake The Snake Began To Take Cocaine As An "Up" For The Painkillers...And Then That Manifests Itself Into Addiction And Before You Know It, You Are Kicked To The Curb...

To Answer Your First Question, I Would Rephrase It, "Are We As Fans Askin' Too Much From These Athletes Who In Order To Satisfy Our Selfish Needs, Ask Them To Do Things Their Bodies Cannot Sustain Without Body Enhancing Drugs."

I Believe It Was A HUGE Factor, The Main Reason Davey Boy Smith, Kurt Hennig, Hercules, Rick Rude Died When They Were So Young...Why Guys Like Jake Roberts And Crash Holly Grew Addictions To Alcohol And Drugs...I Mean To Act As If What They Had To Do In The 80's Had No Part In Their Deaths Is Naive As Hell

The Only Way To Police It Is To Not Ask So Much From Your Wrestlers...Had All These Wrestling/Steroid Related Deaths Occurred Durin' The Steroid Trial Or Beforehand, I Think The Outcome Or Factors Involved In The Trial Would Be Different...It Isn't Neccessarily Vince's Fault, But It Was His Watch When These Things Were Occurring...WWE Has It Right With A New Less Imposin' Style...Some Of You Bitch Asses Complain ABout It Cause You Want To See Crack Addicts Throw Themselves Off Of 15 Foot Ladders, But It Keeps These Guys Goin' Longer And Makes Em Live A Hella Of A Longer
