I like Jason Taylor. I enjoy watching football. However, the Jan. 13 article, Taylor’s pain shows NFL’s world of hurt, where he revealed the physical lengths to which he went in order to play the game was disturbing.
I don’t doubt that he believed it was worth it and that the decision to continue to play was his.
But, that is the exact problem that I do have.
Where’s the medical ethics to clear him to play? Where’s the outrage about doping? How is this medical intervention not performance enhancing?
Is football so sacred that doctors, trainers, owners, Congress, and doping organizations just look away and say it’s his decision to play? This is the wrong message to send to children. There needs to be an investigation into the medical intervention that is used by every team to compete.
