Bigger Stronger Faster
I've written a fair amount about drug use in sports over the years. Some of you have pointed out that sometimes I seem to vilify it while other times I'm more supportive. The reason for this is that it's a complicated subject. To the public, it's about as misunderstood as it possibly could be. The media loves to categorize issues as black or white. If you understand what doping actually is, and its history, you'll see that the entire subject is shrouded in gray.
This film is great. It's absolutely a must see for anyone who feels compelled to comment on Barry Bonds or Lance Armstrong or, perhaps, even watch the Olympics. If you want to be an educated viewer, Bigger, Stronger, Faster is Sports 101.
