Fans of baseball and many other persons seem to be perturbed by results of voting for the Hall of Fame. Some brilliant players have not entered the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is quite naturally that you also ask why they have not been elected. Under guidelines of voting, those that have displayed brilliant baseball abilities and contributed to their teams evidentially should be elected. It goes without saying that such baseball players, as Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, Rafael Palmeiro, Mark McGwire and some other sportsmen have displayed amazing abilities and achievements while playing professionally. Why are they kept out of the Baseball Hall of Fame?
Many voters affirm that they will never support those that have ever been linked to anabolic steroids and/or other doping products. Dopers should get penalty. Future generations should understand that they will never actually have success in sports, if they take performance-enhancing drugs.
What would you do, if you were a voter? Would you support consumers of steroids?
In fact, voters never possess full information about admitted and suspected steroid users. You can’t prove that Roger Clemens has actually administered performance-enhancing drugs. Many individuals have suspicions but there is no any proof. Why should voters refuse to support him? Are they sure that he has used anabolic steroids and other prohibited products? –No, they aren’t. That’s why it is unfair to keep Roger Clemens out of the Baseball Hall of Fame only because of suspicions.
While several voters are ready to support suspected consumers of steroids, they state that they will never vote for an admitted consumer of steroids. Although it seems to be fair, let review the situation better! Have anabolic steroids played any essential role in success of certain baseball player? For example, if even Roger Clemens has taken doping products, it is possible to convince anyone that he has had great success not because of steroids. Amazing achievements of this prominent baseball player have been displayed before his alleged steroid use. According to several affirmations, Roger Clemens has taken steroids since 1998 and then in 2000 and 2001. But the most brilliant accomplishments have been done by him before 1998. So, no one can claim that steroids have helped Roger Clemens to succeed in professional baseball. That’s why he should be elected for the Hall of Fame.
Moreover, why are numerous individuals inclined to blame just consumers of steroids? Isn’t it the society that presses sportspersons to start taking steroids and other related drugs?
