that doesn't eliminate the public's desire to see huge guys blowing away records. Take bodybuilding for example. There's the supposedly clean (more
popular) level and then there's the all natural competitions and the difference is ridiculous.
I disagree with that assessment.
Sports like baseball, are actually better to watch without the dopers.
Since MLB cleaned up the game after the juice-ball era, we see a game played by athletes that have the skill and hustle that makes the sport great.
There is once again 'small-ball', stealing bases, pitching duels, sacrifice bunts, strategy, etc. The way the game SHOULD be played.
Not by behemoths whose biceps need to just swat at the ball and it goes over the fence.
Post juice-ball era baseball is a faster, tighter, and cleaner game and I like it. Maybe to the casual fan it's not but for purists it is.
