A mere whiff of steroid use is enough to sully the reputation of any athlete, whereas players who recover from TJS are praised for their perseverance. But what could be more unnatural, or provide a bigger advantage, than cutting a tendon out of a wrist or leg and inserting it into an elbow?

One argument might be that the surgery merely restores a pre-existing “authentic” level of performance, rather than elevating a player to new heights. But players who have tried to “justify” their use of PEDs by saying they were simply trying to recover from an injury have been consistently scorned
If steroids do actually help athletes recover or recover more quickly from injury, I see no distinction between usage for that purpose and TJS.
That's why I emphasize that the doctors should have no connection to any particular player or club.
