Drug testing news is unfair

I am no advocate of steroid use, but the news I heard yesterday left me scratching my head.

Drug test results from over 100 players in 2003 that were supposed to be anonymous may soon become public, as the rights over who should possess them goes back and forth, reports the New York Times.

From New York Times writer Michael S. Schmidt:

"The test results were meant to be anonymous, and a battle over access to them has wound its way through the federal court system. The players union has tried to protect its members by arguing that the government illegally obtained the information."

I believe that anyone in professional sports who has been proven to use steroids in a season shall be punished severely, because they have an unfair advantage over the players that are not on steroids. Yet, at the same time, I believe that something that was supposed to be anonymous shall stay anonymous and should not be illegally stolen by the government.
