It's A Choice

I don't think Roger Clemens or Barry Bonds should have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. They broke the rules, therefore they should have consequences. Although some inductees have done drugs, I believe they have to put a stop to it at some point. Maybe Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds just had bad luck with it being stopped with them, but it had to be done.

People who used performance-enhancing drugs shouldn't be inducted into the Hall of Fame. If they are, this is not fair to those who did not take drugs during their time on the professional league. It's hard to see how good someone really is if they are being enhanced. Some of the people who didn't do drugs might have actually been better than the ones who did drugs would have been if they were clean, but we'll never know.

The people who are taking performance-enhancing drugs shouldn't be on the team in the first place in my opinion. They are breaking the MLB rules, which shouldn't be looked over. If everyone was off of the drugs, people would be able to see who the better athletes are, naturally. Those who are performing with their natural ability should get rewarded for following the rules, but sadly, they don't. Cheaters shouldn't be elected into the hall of fame. They have a choice, drugs or the Hall of Fame?
