It seems a long time ago, but once upon a time athletes were admired not just for their prowess but also their athetic integrity, that winning was only worthwhile if it was fair, that adversaries were to be respected and honored.
And then there is the football player who kills dogs with his bare hands for shits and giggles, and the innumerable athletes who shoot up various kinds of hormones and act like flaming assholes, and referees who bet on games they influence.
They're going to get their due, but something tells me they'll feel victimized at worst, and cry all the way to the bank at best.
So here's what I think the athletic assoiciations should add to the mix: the penalty of public humiliation. That's right: during halftime, make them come out to the field and get reprimanded - harshly, with a particular emphasis on their lacking manhood. This would be a first warning for moderate offenses. For severe stuff and last warnings, a solemn ceremony of excommunication from the world of sports. They will not be allowed in the stands, other sports organizations will refuse them entry, and every honorable athlete is publicly admonished to never play as much as a game of pick-up with them. They can go jogging by themselves or pitch at a fence, 'cause not even the Little League will let them on the stand.
All the leagues should implement a zero-tolerance policy toward drugs, and put a special monitoring program in place for any athlete that shows unusual changes in muscle mass. Any winning team or individual should go through a battery of tests.
Even the mobsters who do illegal gambling should refuse to take bets from anyone involved in the games.
And killing dogs by throwing them to the ground, well, nobody who does that deserves to keep his testicles.
