Use of performance enhancing drugs in competitions that disallow them is breaking the rules. That is inherently wrong. It’s breaking the rules.

Using performance enhancing drugs is like bringing a gun to a knife-fight. Not only is it unfair, it initiates a circuit of escalation on a function approaching competition to the death as sport.1

1 Neither for nor against this. Just calling la spada “la spada.”
