Vote: What does cheating mean to you?

Jose Canseco says he cheated and that he's not alone.
Cheaters never win, and winners never cheat.

Despite that bit of moral redundancy drilled into our heads as children, history suggests that cheaters do triumph with regularity. If they didn't, why would we have so many rules in place to stop them?

As Barry Bonds, who has never tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs that may or may not have been against the rules at various points of his career, continues to build on his career home run record, and the NBA deals with the public-relations nightmare of an official charged with manipulating the games in which he worked, cheating is at the forefront of many conversations about the sports we play and watch.
