Otter's Question of the Day
So baseball is going to investigate steroid use…BFD. For what? To create a policy like the NFL or NBA – if you get caught using illegal substances, First offence -you get a slap on the hand, a fine and told not to do it again – SECOND offence – another fine and couple game suspension, THIRD offence, enter the league's substance abuse program….oh, and you can still play. What the hell? How about the guy on the street that gets caught, how many chances does he get? None, one time and he’s done. Please don’t get me wrong, I am in no way advocating drug or steroid use, but rather, asking the question why professional athletes suddenly become exempt from the judicial system.
