Peter Edward Rose shall not be in the Hall of Fame due to not satisfying the MLB Hall of Fame requirements and for breaking the MBL rule of conduct. After the 1919 Black Sox scandal, where eight young men threw off the 1919 World Series in exchange for money from gamblers, MLB officials adopted rule 21 in 1927 (Macramalla 1). The MLB rule 21 is as follows: “Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum whatsoever upon any baseball game in connection with which the bettor has a duty to perform shall be declared permanently ineligible.” This rule appears everywhere. It is impossible for anyone dealing with baseball to not have read the rule. Rose is now on the ineligible list due to deliberately disobeying the regulations.
They decided to take their case even further and took it to the United States Supreme Court, hoping to overturn the previous cases that were held at the state level. “We feel that we have a strong case. Arkansas Times is being discriminated against and the state isn’t treating it the same as they are other magazines and newspapers from Arkansas,” the attorney for Arkansas Times told the press before walking into the final hearing. “It’s a discriminatory tax and violates the first amendment.” The United States Supreme Court reversed the order from the Arkansas Supreme Court, finding in favor of the magazine. The court felt that the government was discriminating against Arkansas Times based upon their content, which goes against the First Amendment.

Mass media and commercialization of sports have elevated professional athleticism to the fore, resulting in more sportspeople choosing professional sport as their primary career. With tenser competition in the field, doping in professional sports for an added advantage has become customary, especially with progressive evolution of the pharmaceuticals realm (Baron, Martin & Magd, 2007). According to Davidson (2011), doping is the consumption of illicit drugs or methods to elevate performance and results, based on the prohibited list by World Anti-Doping Agency, WADA. Since 1960, banning on doping has been enforced on the basis that it enhances performance, violates the spirit of sport and threatens health (Davidson 2011). The rifeness of doping started to gain the world’s attention after Lance Amstrong, the seven-time champion of Tour De France was stripped of his title by the US Anti-Doping Agency for intake of illegal performance

AS91101 - 2.4 Writing Portfolio Piece Two - Cooper Title: Drugs in sports Drugs have become an integral part of any modern day sporting event. Drugs give an unfair advantage to the user and the competitors that are using enhancements are not using their own full abilities to win the Olympic medal or championship.

Such as liver failure and development of breasts.
They started being used by the USSR for the Olympic Games and at the time the Soviet Union was dominating in every single sport, now performance enhancement drugs (PED’s) have come a long way and are a lot more complex, but one issue is still common; the moral rights concerning them. The prime reason why performance-enhancing drugs (PED’s) are forbidden in professional sports is because they give the users an unjust lead or advantage over the rest of the competitors. Various sports leagues, such as the NFL, and MLB and UFC have attempted to set an even bar by testing for drug use and punishing those tested positive. It’s a noble effort, but it’s clearly not working. This is why its time for a change in the
“Why It’s Time to Legalize Steroids In Professional Sports” written by Chris Smith portrays a strong argument promoting the legalization of steroids. Before reading Smith’s article I was completely against the entire idea of legalizing steroids. However, after reading this article I find the idea to be less absurd. Smith did not convince me that the legalization of steroids is what our society should in fact do, but he did make a few decent points. Smith discussed approximately four different reasons why the legalization of steroids would enhance our society’s athletics.
How would you feel if you were an athlete who works hard and becomes great and then you see someone take steroids? That wouldn’t make you feel good about yourself. One of the biggest problems in professional sports is that athletes take performance enhancing substances or drugs to make themselves better. People must realize that this is wrong and athletes should not be proud of taking the drugs and doing good for themselves. Performance enhancing substances
There are numerous big time players that used steroids in the 90’s like Gary Sheffield, Jose Canseco, and Jason Giambi, who also aided to the destruction of the game America so dearly loves. Steroid use puts the honest and hardworking players on the back burner. Many outstanding players of this time period will be left off the Hall of Fame despite their solid careers, they were simply overlooked by the record breaking home runs and padded stats of the steroid era. The use of steroids in baseball is cheating. Plain and simple.
Bonds never played another inning in professional baseball after the 2007 season ended.

Rice, who played for the Baltimore Ravens, only received a two game suspension after video came out in 2014 proving his crime. Meanwhile Buffalo Bills player Seantrel Henderson in 2016 was banned from the NFL for using medical Marijuana, prescribed for Crohn 's disease. Its instances like this since the beginning Goodell 's tenure in 2006, that displays his lack of commitment to ethics in the professional sports industry.
