DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – Interesting article in The New Yorker about the definition of cheating in sports.

Why, for example, is it okay for a pitcher to have Tommy John surgery to improve (thus altering) his performance, but A-Rod is a pariah for injecting something to improve (thus altering) his performance?

Should we just accept that this is part of the new normal in sports and legitimize performance enhancing drugs?
