Richard Pound , chairman of the World Anti-Doping Agency and a partner in the Canadian law firm Stikeman Elliott, says: "The use of performance-enhancing drugs is not accidental; it is planned and deliberate with the sole objective of getting an unfair advantage. I don't want my kids, or your kids, or anybody's kids to have to turn themselves into chemical stockpiles just because there are cheaters out there who don't care what they promised when they started to participate. I don't want my kids in the hands of a coach who would encourage, condone or allow the use of drugs among his or her athletes."
Yes, we should be watching football. Even though the players can be seriously hurt. The only reason the players go onto the field knowing they could get seriously injure is because they get paid millions of dollars to do so. I do not think the game in any way should be change, but I do believe that less money should be put into the players. This extra money could go towards researching new technology for helmets, which will dramatically reduce the amount of annual injuries. Football is a huge American tradition, though I am not sure whether it is such a tradition that cannot be changed. I believe it could be changed slightly, but not to the degree of flag football being played at the Super Bowl.
Can you explain to me the grammar structure of the phrase: “be at greater risk doing something as something else” in this sentence? : “A further point is that in statistical terms there is a low probability of injury in many so-called dangerous sports and people are at greater risk carrying out everyday activities such as crossing the road or cooking a meal as bungee jumping.”I thought we should write that phrase as this way : ” at greater risk doing something than something else” or “are at greater risk carrying out everyday activities such as crossing the road or cooking a meal than bungee jumping” .
Thank you so much!
