Mia: This is ridiculous! They’re going to suspend Eric Rodrigo for doping.
Alex: From what I’ve read, he failed his random drug test and they found performance-enhancing drugs in his system.
Mia: But he’s one of the best players on the team. Without him, we won’t have a chance to get to the playoffs.
Alex: He should have thought of that before he decided to cheat. I’m surprised they’re only suspending him for a few games. Last year, a player on another team was banned for life from the sport and stripped of his championship titles.
Mia: In my opinion, they completely overreacted and one of the best players in the game is off the field forever.
Alex: You don’t think that people who use steroids and other banned substances should be punished?
Mia: Not when the fans are the ones who really pay the price.
Alex: So you’re in favor of allowing performance-enhancing drugs in sports?
Mia: Sure, why not? If everybody is doping, it levels the playing field.
Alex: I am really glad you’re not the commissioner!
