Philosophical question of the week

If we're coming off the "Steroid Era," or "Doping Era," for many sports - baseball, track and field, cycling - are we entering the "Litigation/Judicial Era"? Consider - All of the following have either been in court or in front of Congress sometime in the last five years for either criminal or civil reasons, much of which has had an impact on how the athlete and his/her career is being perceived

Michael Vick
Pacman Jones
At least 11 players on the Bengals
Barry Bonds
Roger Clemens
Marion Jones
Lance Armstrong
Floyd Landis
Mark McGwire
Rafael Palmeiro
Chris Webber
The Knicks
Ron Artest
Sammy Sosa
Allen Iverson

Those are just the ones that came to me quickly.

What will the name of the "new" era be?
