Very well written article about Brian Cushing and the role that medicine plays in sports

12

The debate over whether Brian Cushing should be stripped of his ROY award is ongoing. The AP has decided to re-vote on the award, which will likely take it away from him. Even here at CSR, we are debating the issue. Jason Cole at Yahoo! Sports has written a very good article with a lot of input from a prominent doctor on what the role of substance and medicine is in sports, and what it will be in the future. Do some of these substances that are actually intended to "heal" players get wrongly labeled as PEDs? Dr. Thomas Rando, quoted numberous times in the article, thinks the line is too blurry, and the media has overblown PEDs to the point that even healing drugs are held in a bad light. Check it out.
