I think that as peers, we should offer our $0.02, but not go onto a crazy persecuting witch-hunt if we believe that their morals are flawed. If that's the way that they think, even with our rational thoughts on the matter, let them be. We don't want to sound sanctimonious.
I agree, people perspectives on the issue will differ and we can offer our opinions and perspectives on the issue and be done with it. There is no need to call people out and go witch-hunting.

From your last few posts, I would guess you're 15 yrs old or younger? Do I win a prize?
This matters in the terms of this thread because...?
Is it a crime to be 15 yrs old or younger, and post on these boards?
Agreed. If you have a problem with someone take it up via PM. Also, age should have nothing to do with it, its the quality of the opinions and ideas the person is bringing to the table that should matter, not whether it is coming from a 30 year old or a 13 year old.

That statement opens up a whole can of worms. Seriously, if you take it literally then you should have no problem with steroid-use, corked bats, scuffing the ball (pitchers), grabbing someone's belt loop (an old-school method of cheating), tripping a baserunner, doing the Alex Rodriguez arm slap, etc.
its easy to say bending the rules is bad as a spectator, but put youself in the persons shoes, its natural instinct to w/e it takes to be the best
Exactly, athletes put huge pressure on themselves to exceed at the highest level, and many of them will do whatever it takes to succeed.
Agreed to an extent, I can see where the pressure comes from, and playing high school sports I can feel that pressure myself and see why a person might choose to do it, but that still does not make it right or within the rules.
