It's a concerning issue when I see these crazy fans do the things they do. Are the fans all on drugs too?
 
More than 150 Moscow Ultras, described by police as “hyper-violent”, are feared to be plotting further attacks on Welsh and English fans in Lille after police were overwhelmed by scenes of violence inside and outside the Marseille stadium.
 
 
No wonder the athletes themselves are under so much pressure. 
 
Many athletes may find themselves in an environment where there is pressure to distinguish oneself as elite athletes compared to other groups of athletes. In addition, economically motivated reasons including the enormous amounts of money and other benefits involved in elite sport today, may act as a driving force pushing athletes to use drugs in order to have ‘the edge’ over their competitors
 
A relatable theory regarding the driving forces surrounding doping in sport has been described as “the doping dilemma”, stemming from the classical prisoners’ dilemma (Haugen, 2004). Briefly, the prisoners’ dilemma involves the action of one individual having a consequence for another individual. A common, successful goal for both individuals is hard to reach as both individuals do not have the information or trust in each other about their actions. In the context of sport and doping, the dilemma gives reason for using drugs due to the suspicion or conviction that everyone else is doing it and therefore one must use drugs in order to compete under the same conditions, thus creating a level playing field.
 
 
Got to keep the fans happy and in a frenzy. Keeps the coffers filled with coin!

Doesn't using steroids schrivel the cock into a small little worm? Useless and devoid of any juice? Oh well, juice up the muscles...lose your balls and shrink your shaft!

How much for the slave Rosie? Are you selling? No, no. All joking aside. Time to be serious. The college athletes don't have it any better.

Much research has investigated the relationship between sports participation and drug use. Although the research is somewhat conflicting, the bulk of the studies show a negative relationship between drug use and sports participation.  Interestingly, a strong positive relationship between alcohol use and sports participation has been noted in several studies

Lots of examples here. I say let them all take drugs. In the end they'll pay the price to be the professionals they believe they are. The fans want the best an athlete has to offer. Give 'em more juice to keep us entertained in the gladiator ring. They want to play? Let them pay.........

Drugs and Athletes

Sociologists studying human drug use and abuse generally make a distinction between recreational drugs and performance-enhancing drugs. Athletes, ranging from world-class Olympians to high school students, have used both types of drugs, sometimes in violation of the law, and sometimes in violation of the rules of their particular sport. The public prominence of many athletes has put a spotlight not only on the general problem of recreational drug abuse, but on the question of whether using performance-enhancing drugs should be considered a form of cheating.

The future of enhanced human beings using drugs and technology. What will sport and live entertainment be like when trans-humans take over the world? I figure drugs are going to take a part in the development of the perfect super human. Science fiction has already imagined these kinds of ideas. Bring on the electric sheep!
