A baseball player takes PEDs. He hides the truth, lies about his tests and wants to proclaim his innocence from the highest mountain only to be proven a phony and to then be looked upon as a pariah by those who used to adore him as well as by those pessimists who never believed that his numbers were real.
The purists want him banned from the sport for life. “To cheat the game is the ultimate disgrace”, they say.

The NFL wants to ban the use of the N-word. Good idea but a bit hard to enforce.
You see, any player caught using the word on the football field will be assessed a 15 yard penalty.
