NEW YORK -- Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis tested positive for an elevated testosterone level and was suspended Thursday for 10 games.

I'm sorry, but whoever thinks 90% of these guys in the NFL, MLB and NBA aren't on some kind of performance enhancing drugs are morons. I personally am not against it. I think it should be allowed :)

It's not a bad thing if done properly. But like everything else in this world, some people abuse it and give it a bad name.

Damn yall, maybe I should have made a Cutler thread??

it depends. i think, the rules now sort of allow some to be on and some to be off and masking it, you either ban it all or you ban none. but keep in mind most PEDs are illegal, and thus basically need to be baned.

Someone from another board brought up that he got faded down the stretch so he needed a pick me up. Personally I think if its clearly stated in the rules and they get caught then they should be tossed from the league for a year. NBA is in the olympics so you know the players get tested during that, but I'm not sure how the NBA tests its players.

Everyone but Manny Ramirez should be thrown out of professional sports. Start over.

It's not that serious - the substance isn't even banned the MLB...

If it's against the law, it needs to be banned.

I think 90% is pretty high.

It's less than 90%. The random testing is pretty good. And contrary to popular opinion, some of these guys do think its wrong and don't do it.

What are some thoughts on making it aged based?

It is not healthy. You are asking for a heart attack. Really Messes up the Lipids in your blood.

I am not against PEDs in principle in pro-sports. The only real problem I have is that we all know that if you allow PEDs in prosports, kids who aspire to play those sports will do PEDs and that won't be good for anyone.

Only if Cutler used PEDs too.

Alcohol and insulin don't count.
