A-Rod and Armstrong: What made them feel that it was OK to use performance-enhancing drugs? Some suggest that it’s because of a blurred line between cheating and not, or that some athletes see the art — and, of course, science — of competition itself as the most exciting part. Well that’s bull, say two writers with the NYU Sports & Society Program, writing in Forbes. Athletes decide to get their dope on simply because it “feels good to get away with it.” A new study shows that given the chance, most people will dabble in deception even when there’s little to gain — and feel even better about the dishonesty when nobody gets hurt. (Regardless of A-Rod’s reasons, he’s still suing the MLB over the investigation). So before heaping shame onto athletes for trying to beat the system, maybe we should ask ourselves if we’d do the same, given the chance. After all, we may be wired for it.
