Football and Drugs, When Do The Teams Draw the Line these days is becoming a very fine line. Teams want to do the right thing, but they also know they also must produce a winner on the field of play, or lose their fan base. Walking this fine line is very tough for franchises, some do it the right way, and some do not. Let us look at where the line should be drawn when it comes to football and drugs.
The truth of the matter football is a violent support and injuries are a part of it. Drugs are used to help players deal with the pain and many are hooked on them. Deciding the fine line can be tough, but the line should be football and drugs cannot go together. By having drugs in football, franchises are opening themselves up to more drug abuse in the future.
By having a no tolerance policy for drugs in football would help eliminate the problem. Most teams though do not have a no tolerance policy and try to skirt the issue many times. This is why many players once they leave the game struggle in everyday life, as they were use to the drugs getting them by day by day as a player. Unless more football franchises draw the line drug issues will continue to grow in football. Each team has to say where they draw the line, but most do not do it soon enough.
