A-rod. Michael Phelps. Hakuroza. Santonio Holmes. Names that you probably have heard in the recent past. Ok, maybe not Hakuroza, he's a Russian sumo wrestler in Japan, oddly enough. Each of these sports figures have a few things in common. Relative fame and fortune. International attention. Drug allegations or admitted drug use.
Being in the limelight is not easy, but comes with the success and big salary. In Phelps case, he lost an endorsement with Kellogg's. Other companies he endorses have called it a non-issue. Is it an issue? Does an expectation of accountability come with the fame? Is your opinion different with performance enhancing drugs rather than recreational drugs? Is marijuana a performance enhancing drug when it comes to sumo?
