Comment Vince Lombardi is the doping problem. (Score 1) 773

The doping problem exists because winning is too important. As Vince said "Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing." If the outcomes of contests didn't matter in the minds of players, coaches, sponsors, or spectators, there would be no doping or cheating of any kind. Of course, there wouldn't be much organized sport, either.

"Necessity is the mother of invention" is a silly proverb. "Necessity is the mother of futile dodges" is much nearer the truth. -- Alfred North Whitehead
