Gazette sports editor off the deep end

August 26, 2013

I’m sorry but your sports editor, Dave Frederick, has gone off the deep end.

In your Aug. 20-22 issue, in his People in Sports segment titled, “A-rod – a dark-side messiah sent to test our spirit of brotherhood,” he compares A-Rod’s consistent and illegal use of banned substances to Cialis. Really?

Drugs used to elevate one's performance level in a professional sport that determines if they make a team, their level of compensation and their place in history, versus a drug that is used to elevate one's performance level in the bedroom, that determines at the very least, that everyone is happy?

And by the way, what goes unmentioned in all this is that the athlete who participates in this charade of PEDs not only casts a shadow on the sport with which he participates in, he also puts the hardworking, honest natural athlete out of work.

As ESPN has labeled one of their segments so accurately……….Come on Man!
