Thread: Steroids killing baseball players?

    Default Steroids killing baseball players?

    Joe Kennedy died suddenly on friday morning. Recently there have been quiet a few MLBers that have died suddenly or died young and with the known problem of steroids in baseball i wonder if these are related. I mean look at WWE wrestling. They have been dropping like flies and after Chris Benoit everyone is blaming steriods for these wrestlers deaths and depression and other things. I have done reading on steriods because i plan on being a personal trainer and i know they can cause a lot of different problems. I'm starting to think these baseball players are dying just like these wrestlers are. I think the problem is only going to get worse. Anyone else agree?

    I hope that steroids weren't the case with Joe Kennedy, but steroids have definitely taken their effect on football players, as well. Look at the lives of Mike Webster, Lyle Alzado, Andre Waters, etc. Between steroids, and the repetitive head trauma, these guys have literally given their lives to the game.

    Whats even more sad is some of these guy may no know that they are taking steroids. Their trainers may be telling them here take this and they simply don't ask. Ok its their job to ask but if u want my opinion thats at least voluntary manslaughter...

    If you put things in your body without asking what it is, you are to blame. You need to ask, especially when your career could be down the toilet with a positive drug test.

    Thats true. But there is also stuff like providing alcohol for minors. They know what they are doing but its still ur fault. I agree with u tho. Those players should be asking.

    Not a fair comparison. The reason why the adult providing alcohol to minors is in trouble is because legally we say that minors cannot give informed consent. Hence, why their parents have to sign off on everything. These are adults. They are responsible for knowing what they are putting into their own bodies. I'm not excusing the trainers or dealers or whatever you want to call them, they do own some amount of wrong-doing, but the primary responsibility is with the athlete who is injesting or injecting the substance.
