Most of the products are not that dangerous ? Really ?
For instance, you probably should look at the italian soccer of the 80's and the surprisingly high number of players dead or severely ill before reaching 50 or even 40.
Today, its probably safer, obviously, but when you have players ready to take risks and try experimental products in order to possibly win a couple of tenths, two pounds or being able to reach a concentration and focus of 101%, i find very hard to believe that there isnt a significant part of those people that wont get hurt, especially if you move the lines.
Being a competitor doesnt prevent you to have some pride and honor. Some of the competitors want to be able to look at themselves on the mirror...
For the league, at the moment where you start to deal with doping, anyway, i dont know exactly how you could end up with a positive reaction about the sport involved in such a problem.
Most, if not every single one, of the major doping cases and trials made in Europe were started by police investigations.
Anyway, everything is done to prevent any problem around this subject. If you dont really control and test, there is no risk of a bad news...
The thing that is scary is that over a small period, they're not dangerous(still no good) but players have to be at their best for all their careers... Wether they start taking it to get to the next level or to stay in the league... So this mean they will need to take it from 22-38?? That's long and crazy. This is how it gets dangerous.
