    Tim,
    I’m wondering. What is your opinion regarding the current crack down on steroid users in sports? Do you think officials are on the right track in doing this? Do you think baseball and other sports need to batten down on the incidence of performance enhancing drugs?

    I do have some definite opionions on this but I am always interested to hear your well thought out responses to these incendiary issues.

    Performance enhancing drugs have been used by athletes since at least the 1940s. We know that in the Olympic Games, weightlifters were using steroids in the 1950s, shot-putters, javelin and hammer throwers were using them in the 1960s, and (at least) women swimmers in the 1970s. They first started testing for stimulants in the 1960s and the first test for steroids was the 1976 games. Do we place asterisks next to all these records?

    I don’t think there is a professional athlete today who hasn’t used one performance enhancing drug or another sometime during their athletic career.

    Now, sports organizations have the right to set the rules for their members as they see fit. However, the government should stay out.
