I am surprised that everyone just brushes it off: "of course, they should have lives"...
Great, let them have lives, they can do whatever they want as long as they don't harm their bodies and performance. Just like we all flipped out when Brisebois went skiing - remember that?
For me, if I was in management, I would consider their bodies (enjoy this fellas)... my property (hehe). In other words, I am giving you a million dollars to squeeze every bit of talent and ability out of you. If you diminish your capacity by 20 or 30% that is like a loss on my investment.
PS: Just to cause some fights here: If you think that drugs and alchohol don't harm performance, you are either dillusional or have never played sports at a high level.
