Steroids and Sports

There is A TON of controversy surrounding steroids and the effects of taking them.  As far as the government is concerned, if you take steroids to get bigger muscles or to get better at a sport, you're breaking the law.  Yet despite the fact that they're illegal, and despite the side effects that come from abusing steroids, some athletes continue to do it.

Two of the baseball superstars you hear about in Monday's show say they've never tried steroids.  Some reports directly contradict them.  But we're curious as to whether the accusations make you feel any differently about the stars themselves - or about professional sports.

Would you care if record-setting athletes used illegal steroids to make themselves bigger, stronger or faster?  Does it matter to you if the games you go to see are "clean," or do you just want to see them well-played, regardless of whether everyone's playing by the rules?
