Vick’s reinstatement substantial

The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell plays God regularly in the testosterone loaded league.  With players seeming to get into trouble with the law every day, he sure has had plenty of practice in dealing out punishment or giving merciful leniency toward those he believes have atoned for past sins.

Such is how it is in the NFL’s socialist setup, but the league works wonderfully in comparison to virtually every other sport’s structure, and largely upon Goodell’s decisions.

With that in mind, Roger Goodell has reinstated Michael Vick to play in the preseason this year, with a future decision to be made on his full reinstatement before game six of the regular season.  The provisional reinstatement for Vick allows him to participate in all practices and some preseason games, as well as all other team functions, but prevents him from playing in regular season games until he is fully reinstated or removed from the league.

Pete Rose deserves his spot in Cooperstown Hall of Fame

This has been a busy month in sports.  Michael Vick was reinstated to play football.  The Cubs have taken the lead in their division.  Terrell Owens reported to training camp.  Steve McNair was shot and killed.  David Beckham cursed out some fans and showed how much he likes the United States.  

All of these make up big news for sports fans far and wide, but none hold a candle to the ethical and moral implications of the biggest story.

Bud Selig is debating on releasing the lifetime ban on Pete Rose from Major League Baseball.

Hank Aaron speaks out on the Hall of Fameroids

Hank Aaron was the king of the big swing for years in Major League Baseball’s record books, holding the home run record until a man named Barry Bonds swung his way into the spotlight and nabbed the title.  Bonds did it under the suspicion, but never found guilty, of using performance enhancing drugs, or PEDs, to achieve the milestone.  He’s been accused by several, with witnesses saying he’s guilty. As of now, however, there is no concrete proof.

Then there is Roger Clemens, another accused and blasted by the media and former baseball players.  There’s even potential evidence of his DNA still remaining on syringes used, kept by his trainer (which is entirely creepy and weird in its own right).

Many cried that these men shouldn’t be allowed to be in the Hall of Fame because of their suspected use, and those that have announced their guilt or were exposed, such as Alex Rodriguez from 2001 to 2003, and Manny Ramirez who tested positive this year and served a 50-game suspension, should also be banned from entering the hallowed halls of Major League Baseball’s elite.

Big Ben Roethisberger under fire

Ben Roethisberger has driven a bumpy road in the NFL over the last few years.  He had an incredible rookie season and became the face of the City of Steel, showing guts and bringing glory to one of the more dedicated sports towns in the United States.  

Then, in the off-season, he crashed his motorcycle and suffered serious injuries, but was able to recover and bring his game back full swing the following season.  

The Bus, Jerome Bettis, received his championship ring with Big Ben at the helm.  Then last year, the Steelers rolled on to the Super Bowl and captured the league’s championship, effectively sealing the legacy of Big Ben in Pittsburg’s sports hero lore books.

But with any person’s tremendous success and stellar character, there always is one incident that will strike out and seem poised to destroy a legacy, or in this case, a dynasty.

The great baseball debacle: Steroids and the Hall of Fame

Whenever you see a huge mountain of muscle, or a guy that looks like he ate a bus, the first thought to cross most people’s minds is: “That dude is on Steroids.” With an exception to .01 percent of these people, you’d probably be correct. Most people that size have indeed taken a performance enhancing substance, whether it be basic like creatine, or more serious like andropen or Deca. Looking at professional sports, this is a topic that has been making appearances more and more often due to this past winter’s media frenzy.

When ESPN started running the A-Rod Marathon, the crap hit the fan, so to speak. His stalker paparazzi, Selena Roberts, broke a story on Rodriguez testing positive in 2003 for a steroidal substance. A-Rod then admitted it, which was both good and bad.  He “came clean” and many people respected him for basically coming out and saying what most of America had suspected for a long time; anyone in professional sports can be suspect of taking a PED (performance enhancing drug).

Sportsmanship: Not just a player issue

Sportsmanship.  It’s what all little kids are taught when they start playing sports for the first time, learning the rules of the game and the behavioral conduct at which they are supposed to adhere.  The whole point is to uphold the spirit of the game and keep it as a game; not some televised form of war or a street fight.  The rules of the game are set to outline how the game is played, and most players and coaches follow the rules (while some act unethically in their attempts at skirting the rules, sometimes successful but only for a short while).  Behavioral conduct that makes up the ‘unwritten’ rules regard sportsmanship.  

Terrell Owens, being a drama queen for all his seasons, is highly regarded as unsportsmanlike in his diva-like calls for attention. From bashing his teammates, creating hostile environments within the locker room, to calling a press conference while on suspension to televise a workout.
