There Is Big Money In Cheating

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


In going through some videos of an ex-bodybuilder, he revealed some of the substances he took to become one of the top people in the field during the 1990s. This got me thinking about athletes and people in the financial industry who get caught cheating.

In this video I discuss how there is big money in cheating, life changing money. Those who get caught, on a relative scale, get only a slap on the wrist. Does it make it worth it?

What do you think? Is this something that is worth it?

I have always had a huge issue with MLB and the clear discrepancies between how they handle things like this in the league. Pete Rose didn't really even cheat he just gambled and he was basically banned for life. Alex Rodriguez gets caught red handed doping and lying about doping and he basically gets a slap on the wrist. It is a joke.

Yeah. Well I have no problem with Pete Rose being banned from baseball because he did break the cardinal rule of baseball: no gambling.

Since the Black Sox scandal of 1919, it was repeated ever season in Spring Training, no gambling. Yet he did it.

That said, in my view, he should be in the Hall of Fame which is a museum.

As for ARod, yeah he is garbage. Such a scumbag for how he behaves. It is going to be interesting if they let him in the Hall.

Okay, I can agree with that and I guess that is what I actually meant. At least let him into the hall of Fame.

Without a doubt. He is one of the greatest players in baseball history.

What are your thoughts about Bonds and Clemens going in, or not?

Probably not any more than McGwire and Sosa. I have Marks card from one of his first years in the majors and he was so tiny! They definitely made baseball exciting but you can't tell me they weren't doping.

They were, to some degree. How much is up to speculation.

McGwire admitted to using Andro which, to be fair, was not banned at the time.

However, there is no doubt those two are not in the HOF due to the suspicion of PEDs.

So they fall into the same category as the others.

I remember the hype when I was a kid at the time. It was a good thing for baseball despite all the later controversy.

As I stumble on this post my heart breaks as I remember Marion Jones.

Seems to me that those who have money may not have to do as much time, as a person with no money. How sad that some athletes who do cheat are examples for the children who watch them. You brought up a point about other prisons that have drug offenders; rich people do drugs to and get by paying a fine and doing little time where those who have no money do more time. Sad is the line between rich and the poor.

Well the difference I was alluding didnt really have to do with money as much as Federal white collar crimes versus state prisons. White collar criminals under Federal indictment tend to go to very lax prisons.

But there is definitely the golden rule in play, he with the gold...

I can see how easily athletes are seduced to the dark side when the edge these drugs give them make them winners, with all the fame, adoration and riches that winning brings! Whether it’s worth it I guess depends on the risk benefit ratio, and so I see it as an inevitable occurrence in our Sports Excellence culture.

It isnt only athletes though. As I mentioned, the financial world is full of it too.

Hell we see it in crypto with all the scams too.

Cheating can be very profitable though.

Your right. It’s all over, the root of all evil is clearly the unrestrained pursuit of money by any means necessary.

There's a special on in regards to cheating in the skating world and judges being bribed to make sure certain skaters got top scores. I'm assuming this is because of the Winter Olympics going on right now.

That doesnt surprise me. Anywhere there is big money, there is a good chance there is cheating.

I bet the NCAA is full of corruption and massive cheating. Nothing is truly off limits.

Sad to take this stance but no reason to believe any of this is on the up and up.

Whenever money is involved, I can really see people cheating for it. Especially when all they will get is a slap on the risk. It's in more than just sports and I recall hearing stories of people doing illegal things but continue doing it because the fines are cheaper than the profit.

...the fines are cheaper than the profit.

That is the case with the banks. Just a cost of doing business to them. They get hit with a $200 million find but make $500 million or a billion by cheating.

It is simple math.

look at Lance Armstrong and also a 100 metre champion who just wasn't caught yet. Add the majority of tennis players into the mix. Not the hardest way to make a couple of mil.
