When it comes to domestic violence and sports team’s players, the sports team does have an ethical responsibility to decide the player’s fate. The sports teams are put in an ethical dilemma as to whether it’d be better for the team to keep a player despite what they did or just lose them. This can be seen in the MLB right now with the Yankees, the Dodgers, and Aroldis Chapman. Chapman “has been the subject of domestic violence allegations” and so “the Dodgers reportedly passed on such a trade because of the allegations.” The Yankees did the opposite and acquired Chapman because of his record breaking 105 mph fastball. Debating who made the right choice is based on one’s own

For two straight years and possibly even longer, Alex Rodriguez spent over $12,000 a month for performance enhancing drugs (PED) to gain an unfair advantage over his competitors (Weaver). Professional athletes like him are subject to huge contracts and an incredible amount of pressure to perform at a high level. As a result of this, many resort to steroids as a training aid.

This is extremely unfair to players that work unquestionably hard to be a professional athlete while some athletes are cheating through the use of steroids. It also destroys the integrity of the sport because awards, records, and championships seem to be fallacious.
