for reals. I really think there needs to be a way for peolpe that want to kill themselves through drugs to do it. PED Sports is a great way. You know it will be entertaining and you know it will stimulate some economy.

You don't think that, generally speaking, personal investment or tribalism are the larger impediments?

If there was an all-drugs allowed olympics, I'd actually watch it. Otherwise, don't give two craps about sports (or e-sports).

Yeah I don't know why somebody hasn't made a killing doing it.

There are all sorts of maniacs that really believe in short sweet life that will line up for PEDs to compete. Why not give them that chance at glory. This way we know its all PED instead of suspecting

Shame on the ESL. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif[/quote]

Why ? If they want to be a real sport, all other sports drug test. Adderoll would keep you focused and going for hours, that would be an advantage over other players who don't take it. If you've never taken it, then you wouldn't understand.

I am sorry, but what type of drugs are we talking about that are going to give someone an online edge?

You know...muscle enhancing drugs help you run faster and hit harder...but click faster?

Yeah I am not opposed to drug tests at all. Just to throw it out there. I believe in hard work.

But I also believe that a PED Sports would be killer (pun intended) for TV and economy.

Completely get that, let all sports players take whatever they want, we will watch more. There would be a MLB player hit 100 home runs and their profits would skyrocket. But they are all worried about the future health problems of the players and lawsuits that would follow.

Yeah but thats an easy fix aint it. Make the person sign a full disclosure act saying I won't sue you for being a dumbass and doping my blood stream with PEDs
