The news has been dominated this week by a huge scandal that has damaged the reputation of Australian sport. A year-long investigation found that some sports stars have been breaking the rules by using drugs to improve their performance.
What should be the penalty for athletes taking performance enhancing Drugs?
Right now, the general public do not have a clear vision of what is happening. In fact, watching the Footy Drug Summit on Channel 7 last night, it seemed that even Andrew Demetriou and other people at the centre of this saga were not sure themselves of what was happening. However, I believe drugs and doping should not be allowed in the AFL or any other sporting league in Australia. I think every player,coach and club doctors who encourage or take these drugs should be heavily penalised or given a life ban.
