Do a majority of elite athletes use PEDs?

    I ask this cause there's a building consensus that most if not all high level athletes use PEDs, so it doesn't matter when someones is busted for them. The argument is generally that there's no way these athletes could perform and train at the high level they do naturally (the same people that barely lift a finger)

    There's also the argument that they can cheat drug testing, so having negative results proves nothing.

    I contest that it's quite possible to be a great athlete in any sport, so as long as said person has the right genetics, grasp on technique, and work ethics to make it far. I think that PEDs will only become a bigger problem if so many people continue to think this way, as it can give people that want to be athletes the wrong impression.

    Not that I'm denying there's going to be athletes who are in fact on the juice, but it's ignorant to generalise athletes when many could very well be hard working people that have simply worked their way up because of their commitment.

    What do you all think?

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    People who tend to make accusations without any proof (obviously) are the ones who's fav lost against to, generally in sport.

    In Tennis for example so many fans used to say Nadal was a doper and that was because he used to beat Federer pretty much all the time in the slams, and in women's game same with Serena because she used to win lots and beat Sharapova every single time...

    ironically enough Sharapova got caught last year and got banned for 2 years :lmao

    I watch basketball so who cares. So much of it is based on instinct it's irrelevant for me.

    Yes. Most athletes today do use PEDs. They kind of have to. If you are the rare athlete that chooses to be clean... You are putting yourself at a disadvantage.

    I watch football, being faster, stronger and having more stamina might help you a certain bit. But, dribbling, kicking, positioning, passing, etc. are more fundamental to the sport and there's not much to stand on to say that football players use PED's.

    I mean, Guerrero was fucked up because of trace amounts of cocaine-like substance or something like that and I heard many football players talking about how rigorous the testing is.

    Don't get me wrong, there are other ways to totally cheat your way to the win in football, but they are mostly done outside the field, with bribery and such.

    It happened with Lance armstrong pretty tragic story imo he was my inspiration .

    In football its pretty common but if playerexceed beyond human limit like lionel ,cristiano does often for past a decade you do sense of doubt its fixed .

    Yes PED s are certainly fairly used by top athletes but not everyone does it. I think its most used in wrestling or boxing where the physicsl limit are more.

    If players like messi or ronaldo are public figures so they probably get tested almost every match .

    There are limits to how much it can be rigged. Not even GOD could have saved the 2014 Miami from losing the finals.

    No, not anymore. They have been cracking down since the Mitchell Report 12 years ago, across all sports.
