This is just bad

"Cheating in sports undermines the reason we're watching in the first place. If the competition isn't legit -- if the outcome is influenced by factors we can't see -- we're just wasting our time and emotion. Why care if the games are decided by something we can't see? The hollow win does nothing for us, unless you're a professional gambler. The rest of us cling to something more pure. Most of us came to sports when we were younger and more innocent. Adult cheating in sport defiles those memories."
